It's so much fun to not be the shy kid, if even for a weekend.
I imagine you do a lot of group cosplays?
Meeting people is fun to do at cons. Especially if you find someone from a series you love that isn't well known!
We try to do group cosplays. But we're all interesting in different things that it's hard to cosplay from the same series. Except one of my close friends and me will be doing a Wreck it Rapl cosplay with another one of his friends!
