“I just read through your whole blog and you’re just too perfect. I love that the first tip is to bathe.. that just really made my day! I have a few things, know where the safe zone is at your con. Many larger ones have one of sorts. At least be able to identify staff just in case of emergency.” Quote from siberianninja

First, thank you :D. Second, I’m not really sure what you mean by safe zone, so, I’m gonna wing it. Make sure that you can get so a safer place in case of a fire, fight, or any other kind of mishap. Know where security is, so that you can report illegal activity or any disasters. I’ve never been to a con where there was a fire or anything, but I have seen a fight go on, and it wasn’t exactly the best situation to be in. Just make sure that you know where to go in case of an emergency.

No quote. Anonymous submission.

Conventions are probably the easiest places to get lost, especially when you’re in a group. Make sure that you  have all of their numbers before hand, and can get a hold of them. Make sure that you also have a meeting place, like near the info booth or maybe outside a panel room.trust me, somebody always gets lost. Even if your think your group won’t get split up during the con, Its always wise to have a meeting place, in case you do.

“some cosplayers will have glasses or braces, or will have disabilities that require the use of devices such as canes or special gear. some will have very different body types from the character that they are cosplaying. this does not make them worse cosplayers; do not look down on them for this.”Quote from cronistic-tribute

Maybe they are short, maybe they are tall, maybe they are thin, maybe they are chubby, maybe they have disabilities, they could have scars, they could have burns, or maybe they have a deformity. What ever it is, they can’t help it, so it’s not okay to think poorly of them. Just because they are different doesn’t make them “bad cosplayers.” Who cares if they aren’t perfect? What if they are? It’s not okay to judge people on how they look.

This is one of my biggest pet peeves. I can understand saying it once or twice, but it just gets annoying. I always hear somebody running around calling everything “Kawaii desu ne?!?!?!” It isn’t cute to run around saying kawaii a billion times a day. I understand what its like to be a little over excited about things, but maybe its a little much? To me, people who say this about EVERYTHING are either trying too hard to be cute, or they are a little weebish. Is that just me?

“If your group has to split up for any reason, designate a time and location to get back together and make sure to have your phones with you. I can’t tell you how many times I lost my one friend because one of us forgot to keep a phone on and didn’t say what time/place to meet up other than “later”“  Quote from pinkhair-bluebox

Always have a plan, even if you don’t think you will get separated. You will get separated. Make sure you all have a cell phone, and actually check them every once and a while. I am guilty of never checking my phone … I just forget. Cons can be really hectic and confusing, so always have a meet up place.

“I get this all the time as a Homestuck cosplayer. I really love a lot of different anime and games and TV shows, and would love to talk about them too. I hate how choosing a cosplay turns into choosing “sides.”” Quote from Anonymous

If somebody walks up wanting a picture of you, it’s not okay to say no just because you hate the anime they are cosplaying from. I see this happen every so often at a con, and its never a good thing to see. It is incredibly rude, and can start a fight. Just don’t be a snob to other fandoms, or cosplayers.

If a guy wants to cosplay a girl, it’s none of your business. If a girl wants to cosplay a guy, who are you to stop them? I feel this is kind of a double standard sometimes; I feel that girls crossplaying is accepted, while guys crossplaying isn’t. If you think guys can’t cosplay girls or girls cant cosplay guys, its just like thinking only white people can cosplay; its ridiculous.
