You're not required to cosplay at all. This is cosplay.com, though, so most of us are into the cosplay aspect of conventions.

You're never *required* to wear a costume ^.^ There will be plenty of people out of costume looking around, as well

Thanks again. Maybe I might come in dressed like a ninja just for Friday night, wear most of my Ninjutsu uniform just without the uwa-gi so I'm not displaying my patches in public, only problem would be finding another top at home to replace it. I guess it'd make sense to try and participate the whole time. I'll figure it out and whatever costume I decide I'll put up here for anyone that cares.

Also, is it absolutely mandatory that you have to be dressed up in an actual anime character costume to walk in? I'd like to look around on Friday night but probably won't have time to dress up.
The con should definitely still be active well into the night, like I said it usually shuts down around 2am for most cons xD You can wear whateeeever you want, whether it's street clothes, a full costume, pieces of costumes, or whatever crazy nonsense you come up with. No one will judge you for it, lol, and in fact you'll be surprised by the sheer number of people you see doing just that and wearing whatever they please. The only time it matters if you're in costume is like say if you were to enter for actual Craftsmanship judging in a contest or something, otherwise you're totally fine.

Cool, well like I said I have absolutely no idea on what to expect so all the feedback here is much appreciated. Not sure I'll remember anyone when I get there considering I just joined the forum, but if you guys see a ninja on Friday night or a Kenshin Himura on Saturday, it might be me, so see you all then.

Mentioned I'd provide an update when I finalize my costume. I've already mentioned I'll be Kenshin Himura on Saturday but when I get there late Friday night, I'll be wearing my actual ninja/ninjutsu uniform (minus the uwa-gi/the top) to keep it simple and quick since I'll get there late.

I'm being Yukimura Sanada from Gate 7. Will probably have a sign to my back saying either "Ditzy" or "Klutz" and pretend I'm not aware of it.
I am bringing Pascal from Tales of Graces f, but I'm not sure if I'll actually wear it. Since I didn't have time to make the pouches.
