A pink elephant with whiskers? Elephant’s tail isn’t that fluffy. Who are you trying to impersonate buddy? Who is Bing Bong? Do you want to win this competition with that kind of cosplay? Are you choosing your cosplay based on your body shape? Will anyone recognises you?
I agreed that I’m fat but I really love Bing Bong, Riley’s imaginary friend in ‘Inside Out’. Look at how sincere he is helping Joy to get her back to the headquarter. But, well, I guess they are right. No one really remembers Bing Bong. Cosplaying as Bing Bong won’t bring me any benefit. I think I shouldn’t even cosplay in the first place and play some games in my house.
“Sir, my daughter wants to take a picture with you.” A mom pats my shoulder so I turn around and see a cute child staring intensely at me.
“Hi kid, what’s your name?” I squat down to the child eye level and trying to be as cheerful as I could be.
“Hi Bing Bong, I’m Mary, I’m 7 years old.” She knows my character. Her eyes are smiling brightly at me.
“Hi Mary, nice to meet you. Is it okay for me to lift you?” She happily looked at her mom and her mom permit it. We took pictures and before I put her down, I sing her a line of ‘The Bing Bong Song’.
“Who’s your friend who likes to play?”
“Bing Bong, Bing Bong” She replied.
“His rocket makes you yell “Hooray!””
“Bing Bong, Bing Bong”
“Who’s the best in every way, and wants to sing this song to say” I throw her into the air.
“Bing Bong, Bing Bong!” She screamed.
I gave her candies as I let her down. I waved back at Mary while she cheerfully ran around her mother. I guess being Bing Bong is okay. At least I know that not everyone forgets him.
