Mostly from the sheer volume of Dekus out there primarily. When I saw the link of the fanpic, I assumed you'd be going as that, instead of a Deku version. But if you're doing a Deku, then it'd be a matter of a person still finding a way to stand out. At the 2 cons I went to this year, I saw maybe 6 or so Asui's, 4 Totorodokis and 2 Bakugos. And I stopped counting Dekus after 10. At each con. So if I was intending to do a Deku, I'd want to do something that really stood out of the crowd of Dekus, like if you had some EL wire wrapped/glued and had it flash to give you a full cowl/one-for-all effect.
And I should probably explain my own lexicon a bit, a "walking around" costume is one that you'd be comfortable in, maybe get recognized (or not, depending on the crowd around you), and one that would be good to see the panels, check out the vendors and whatnot without losing too much time. It's not the same as a "contest ready" or "show stopper" costumes (which I think are self explanatory), but it's by no means a bad costume.
