Don't be that person.
I totally understand reasons for declining photos, have done so myself, but is it really that big of a deal if someone snaps a picture anyway?
Since you're in a public forum they didn't have to ask in the first place, its just a courtesy. If that's the photo she wants to take then let her, its her loss that it won't look as good as it could have had they waited till the cosplayer was ready.
