I know it probably won't happen, but the only thing I am afraid of is cosplaying getting the same rep as furries.
Back when I didn't know what furries were, I heard from a television show that furries were all sexual and did the "fetish" things.. That is basically the only part of the fandom that they talked about (or just all I remember).. And that was my interpretation of furries until I learned that they aren't all like that..
But I got to admit, when "furries" come to mind, I always think of furry hentai. It just has that rep.
