The number of no shows for me typically ranges from 2-3 every con for every 20 shoots I do, so my ratios are not that lopsided, but they happen. Typically, people show up because they know that there are many other cosplayers out there who wanted a shoot with me, but couldn't since they were not fast enough using social media (my slots pretty much fill up in 1 hour after I post it), and being friends with most of them I could easily get in contact with the ones who barely missed getting shoot times if there are no-shows.

If you put it in a half glass full scenario, a no show makes someone else's con better since you can devote your time to another shoot or do hallway shots that you probably may have missed when doing this no-show shoot.
