And believe me, the one I'm working on now for convergence next month...there is no way I'm wearing it longer than I have to. Black pleather bodysuits in July are for stage only!
Like I said in the comments on it, it will be like zipping yourself into your own personal hell. I can only HOPE our Riot Squad costumes don't cause me to burst into flame at AX.
To get back on topic, first impressions can matter a lot to an audience, but it's risky business. If it turns out your costume doesn't go over with the audience, it doesn't matter if you showed it off in the halls before or not.
