Im not to familiar on the problems dealers have besides the bad haggling, but I can only assume if your gonna cosplay too, its possible someone will come up and bother you. Uh one other thing is maybe someone stealing something? Since its your first year, I would really keep an eye out.
Wow what the fucckkkk
So, I was attending Aki con in this Gundam mobil suit that took me over a year to make because I didn’t want to use cardboard and the wings kept not wanting to balance and etc. Anyway, I was really excited about it because I thought I did a great job. As I was walking across this little outside area to get to the indoor photo shoot area, this one guy came up to me and asked who I was. I told him I was Deathscythe - Eve Wars version and he started shouting about how I did it wrong and how the Eve Wars version didn’t count and how I was a shitty cosplayer for not knowing that. Having heard stories about people like this, I tried not to let it get to me and just walk away, though my feelings were still hurt. Then he shoved me to the ground (which hurt because I was walking on 7in platforms to get the foot to body proportion right, so I had a long way to fall) and then stomped on both of the wings so that they broke off and shattered. I was so in shock that I could only stare up at him. He sneered that he did the cosplaying world a favour and ran off. I, of course, started crying and immediately called my parents to take me home. It sucked. :(
Dude what the fuckkkkk thats so wrong! Im so sorry that hapened to you :C I have no words I cant……I woulda chased him down and kicked his ass man…….
(Thank you canadian-cutie for the sub. )
You deserve a pat on the back my friend.
Simply beautiful *wipes tear*
A: Yeah you must wear them, but you can take them off for pictures
B: Yes unless stated otherwise, like its to crowded, just try not to disturb the panalist.
C: Depending on the con tbh, If its very large. At least an hour in advance, but if its local maybe 20 minutes.
*slams head against wall*
Why. Cant. People. Under-fucking-stand.
GLOMPING. ISNT. FUCKING. CUTE.
Thats such bullshit! I just cant 8 months thats must have been hell to make only to have it shattered in seconds. Unreal.
Thats good! Hopefully your next convention with the new heels will run more smoothly C:
I went to my first convention last year, and despite most of the day going smoothly, I hit two snags.
I really hate it when people get shit for cosplays they work really fucking hard on >:/ Its unreal.
I hope your dad hunted them down because thats not cool >:/ Im glad you werent hurt to bad tho U.U
Boop there ya go^
This isn’t really a horror story but it was quite bad.
So it was the second day of Anime Detour ‘13, I just got out of my casual wear and changed into my Catherine costume. Now my costume has high heels and I practiced all year before the event so I’d figure all would go well right?
Not even close.
I was shaking in the legs, unbalanced and yelping as I almost fell on other con goers. While people understood my pain, security was ready to escort me around the area to make sure I didn’t actually fall face first on the floor. (fortunately on my end, it didn’t have to come to it.) I had to keep taking my shoes off for a while just to get the feeling in my feet back, or until hotel workers told me to put my shoes back on.
I eventually made it through the second half of the day without breaking my ankles but….Yeah. On the brighter note; I had ten people recognizing my costume :D
Im glad you made it through the day C: Heels are a bitch to walk in at cons, and I commend anyone that does it, so congrats to you, even if you had some trouble C:
(Thank you feliciakainzandtorishai for the sub. C: )
With that outfit, just be wary of general creeps and such :V Its very cute and I wish you luck UuU
Hello and thank you! And no you should be fine C: Usually just swords (like real ones not props) are asked to keep in the hotel rooms. Most everyone carries around props that actually look like a legit weapon, so if yours doesnt even look the part, you should be fine C:
Nope I havent heard anything bad about Anime Milwaukee myself C: Good luck with youre cosplay btw C:
