Preserving Anonymity through Costuming

People wear #costumes or #cosplays for different reasons. Often its for fun, for parties, holidays, being a hobbyist, contests, etc. Sometimes its professionally, but sometimes it provides a means for individuals to anonymously express themselves so that they can preserve their privacy and private lives.

Not everyone wants to be a celebrity and being masked allows people who publicly share opinions and advice to avoid the negative aspects that being a celebrity can cause. One such public masked figure operates a YouTube channel called “Heroic Concepts” and in one recently posted video (back in January of this year), he explains why he wears a mask.

Whether you agree or not with his views that he shares in a variety of YouTube videos, we support his reasons for donning a mask and expressing himself as he chooses.
