I'm too ugly for cosplay.

I don't have a face for cosplay.
I'm ugly. I really am. There is no doubt about this. I was told I was ugly for my entire teenage years. I am in shape and I groom myself as much as I could, but my facial structure overall isn't that flattering. It upsets me so much because I put a lot of effort into trying to look nice and it never pays off, ever. I enjoy other cosplay-related hobbies like designing, sewing, arts and crafts, etc. but I can never get myself to wear a costume and go to a con. I fear looking ridiculous trying to do that being the disgusting piece of garbage that I am. It hurts really bad. I wish I was born with a prettier face. I really want to cosplay, but I can't get myself to fo that. What is there for me to do?

Feel free to include other Texas cities too!
Basicially I want to take a trip to Houston in April for my Birthday to see the Shop in Wonderland store, GLW store, and the FIT store (since there is no daiso). Just wondering people's opinions on these things, and if there are any other things that I should look into seeing while there(other alternative fashion/weeb shops)
Inb4 don't support shitty businesses, I know, but I can't afford the trip to New York or San Francisco right now.
Feelings Concerning Lolita Fashion

I'd like to discuss some things I thought about recently.
Here are some questions:
- Do you compare yourselves a lot to other lolitas in general?
- Do you compare your style/ability to coord to others?
- Do you compare your wardrobe (amount of dresses & items, amount of brand stuff) to others?
- Do you unintentionally make lolita fashion a kind of competition?
- Do you get angry when Lolitas wirte sth. like this: "This is just my SMALL lolita dress collection" [List with 30+ dresses & other items follows] ?
I shamefully have to admit that I can answer all the questions with Yes.
Sometimes I feel more confident about myself, for example if I got good photos or ordered new items. But at other times it's so frustrating that I think about giving it up.
I'd like to know your thoughts/feels about that, how you deal with it, your experiences, advice etc.
