Cosplaying while injured? (resolved)

SENSE HAS BEEN TALKED INTO ME

I got minor surgery on my leg today, but I'm planning on attending a small convention on Saturday. Is there anything, short of plastering a sign on myself that says INJURED DO NOT TOUCH, to keep people at bay? A friend and I were joking about cosplaying a character with bandages and all that, but I don't know how effective that would actually be.

No, definitely dont cosplay a character with bandages, that just make it seem like your not hurt. Are you worried about people glomping you without asking? Maybe take a friend along and have them watch out for other people coming at you. Really only thing short of a sign i can think of.

Ouch I did GIR from invader Zim when I was still recovering from a car accident. Not Wise. I know you want to go experience all there is to be had from a con, but it may be too risky even with a spotter

You guys are right. Ah well. It's more important not to bust my stitches open by some enthusiastic kid, haha.

Yeah, believe me, it's not fun at all. I went to a large con about two weeks after having minor back surgery. I couldn't walk very well and just kind of shuffled along. I had two friends flanking me and I still got tackle glomped. Hurt like a bitch and the person that did it ran off before we could grab them. Wasn't worth it.

Your body takes first priority over everything. I would put off cosplaying until it heals significantly so you don't make it any worse. There's always another con.
