Sometimes it's nice to take a break from all of the bad, shitty news that's going on in the world and focus our energies on things that spark joy—like this incredibly adorable video of two She-Ra cosplayers getting engaged!

It all happened over the weekend at Katsucon (an annual anime and pop culture convention held in Washington, D.C.) when cosplayer Guilian, who was dressed as the titular hero from Netflix's super-queer animated series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, popped the question to their partner Kevin, who was cosplaying She-Ra's best friend turned rival Catra.
"I finally got to ask the girl of my dreams to be my wife," Guilian captioned in an Instagram post about their proposal. "I’ve been waiting so so long to ask her and this was the perfect moment. Thank you to everyone who made this special moment possible."
