There's another thread about MegaCon in the Other Conventions forum.

But you do have a valid question. Though I did not cosplay to my first con ever- which WAS Megacon in 2001- I think it is perfectly fine to cosplay to your first con. I did not cosplay for my first year of con-going. I wore total civvies to Megacon,then a dirndl to the other 4 cons I went that year. Then in 2002 I started cosplaying- and wore costumes to all cons I went to.

It is fine to wear an approximation to a character. You could loosely say that my dirndl was a Heidi, Girl of the Alps costume. Which would be cool because #1 it is my real name and #2 it is the first movie I watched.

I don't think you need proof. It's not a uber-organized event, after all, just people getting together for some casual group shots. And this thread should be locked soon, in all fairness...since we already have a Megacon thread in the correct forums! XD

doujin2002: I'd also like to add that you should not provide false information about yourself. I see the Japanese flag next to your name and you're obviously asking about MegaCon and it really doesn't look like you're flying all the way from Japan to attend.

You're obviously new, so please take this as advice, don't do it again. Either set it as blank, or don't set it at all.
