Another pet peeve of mine are cosplayers who are careless with their props. I know it's fun to pose with your prop and all that, but don't do it in a crowded hallway and be considerate where you put it when you sit in a panel or video room. Almost got hit on the head with Sailor Pluto's time key which was made from a metal shower curtain rod.
XD Ok I know I'm not even replying to the topic but in my first year of cosplay I made the mistake of carrying my hiraikotsu for sango around, at all times. and managed to almost knock a guy out..so i learn to keep big props in the room unless its a photoshoot. Ne way I hope this thread doesnt get closed because atleast people are able to have a little place to vent ;o.
