That happened to me last year. I didn't tell them I was and that I wasn't. I just went "oh, hello (character he was)." He was so happy. I was familiar with the game the character came from but not the actual character. =T Later I had to tell him though because he kept following me around and popping up outta nowhere to talk to me. Not that it was annoying but I just felt so bad I had to tell him... If I knew more about the character I would have played along though. lol. I just hate making people feel bad but I woulda told him earlier if I knew he'd be seeing me so much...

At one convention I was mistaken by several people for a different character from the correct game series, but didn't really bother to correct them.

Then two years ago I was dressed as a character from Dynasty Warriors, and some woman walking by me goes, "Oh cool, Green Ranger" and I'm thinking "WTF?" I didn't even bother, she seemed ignorant enough to not even listen if I corrected her.

I cosplayed Ginny once at a con, and a group of Marauders cosplayers asked me if I was cosplaying Lily, and I told them I wasn't, but they were so adorable and awesome that I said that I could pretend to be Lily for a picture with them. It was cute and fun and we all laughed about it. It was pretty great.

I guess it depends on the situation. If it was a brief moment, I probably wouldn't correct them but I wouldn't pretend that I was cosplaying that character if they tried to talk to me about it.
