All kids are cosplayers at heart.
Lol that's pretty cool. He's lucky you guys were tolerant of kids running through the stores. The costume stores I have been to are very uptight about stuff, and sometimes don't even let customers try on costumes.
But yea I agree that kids are cosplayers at heart. Dress up is very similar to cosplaying, it's just that cosplaying is like a much more involved version of dress up. I remember having those princess gowns from the Disney store as a child, and even being like "this isn't what it looks like in the show, looks nothing like this". Of course when I said that my mom just ignored it, but it just show sthat I was picky with accuracy when I was little.
I don't really have any cute kid reactions to share, given the nature of who I cosplay. But at NYCC last year this mother saw me and was like "oh look Johnny Depp! Go take a pic with them" and she had her kid stand in front of me while she took a picture. it was very weird. I don't think she quite knew who I was.
