I've been called fat, ugly, and been ridiculed for really minor costume details on sites outside of cosplay.com. Eh, what can ya do?
I remember this one time at a con, my friends and I were waiting for an elevator in a hotel. I think we were dressed as....our Medusa costumes? I think. And a hotel worker was came up and started talking to us in this really blatently condesending tone, asking us stuff like "What superpowers do you guys have?" and "Did you guys see Goku? Was Goku there?" since that was obviously the only anime he's ever heard of.
I think I said something like, "Oh, DBZ isn't very popular at these conventions ^____^" which...isn't entirely true, but it confused the hell out of him and shut him up. Ahaha...
Other than that, as far as I know, I haven't been mocked at cons or anything. At least not to my face. >_>;;
Edit to add: Oh yeah, I've definitely heard "It's not halloween!" type comments too. OH HO, HOW ORIGINAL~
