After the event, the woman’s granddaughter shared a video that showed her grandmother’s reaction to what people were saying about her cosplay costume.
During and after Dragoncon 2017, people have had an amazing outpouring of love and support for my grandmother, and have been sharing her picture everywhere on Instagram, Facebook, and other social media sites. We’re still catching up and seeing all of the pictures and responses to her cosplay, but I was amazed to see how many articles featured her and the overwhelmingly positive responses to her. She of course is from the generation that if it’s not on TV it doesn’t count, so I tried to impress upon her just how many people have seen her picture.
