Smaller conventions and photoshoots are the best way to go.
Now someone said that I guess that walking around the block sounds a little nerve wrecking specially you are shy. To me, something walking in cosplay in my neighborhood doesn't bother me because I know most of the people who are polite. I guess it really depends on how comfortable you are in your neighborhood.
*Nods head* I agree.
