Heh. Yup. My group and I have come to the conclusion that anytime we go ANYWHERE it is okay to cosplay if we feel like it. We also cosplay to school on occasion... We haven't done anything really spectacular yet (aside from some j-rock stuff), but maybe someday! Cosplay... it's not just for conventions anymore!

Talking Hella yeah!

OMG! What cosplayer doesn't go around outside of cons in costume? Most of the clothes I wear, people think I'm wearing a costume anyways... But yeah, I practically cosplay everywhere I go. I'm making plans to go to the mall in costume when I finish Voice. Just the other evening I was at Denny's with some friends dressed in our faire get-up. (i.e. I was dressed as an elf warrior. You should have seen the people's faces! XD They'd turn and accidently bump into me or something... "I'm sorry" ::turn::sees elf ears:: O.O# "Oh my. ..."). Lemme see what else... I wore my Mad Hatter costume in Las Vegas with the make-up and everything... oh geez... when I wasn't in a casino the people were all "What the....??? O.O#;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;" (in the casinos no one really noticed XD! Someone thought I worked there and of course I pretended like I did because that's how strange I am!) And there were many other cosplaying experiences like those but... I don't have enough time to go into detail on any of them...

In the HS where I study there is a day where all the students from the 3rd year wear costumes or what ever they wanted to. That is my favourite day. I was there w/ my Toguro costume (very simple one) but the only problem was to try figure out who was cosplaying (since there are some cosplayers in my school only a few show up w/ costumes). The only problem was that one of the security guys thought I wasn't a student and ... well ... (I think you can imagine the confusion).

One of my teachers actually said "I just love your costumes" a few months ago. I said "oh, but these are my normal clothes" and then she went away... I've been attacked by anything from talent agents to French tourists (really, just the other day) about my everyday clothes...

Last year at AX, my dad and I had to go to Home Depot to get some supplies... I was wearing my Marion costume at the time, and it's so much trouble to get into, I didn't wanna bother changing... So anywho, when we went in, I tell you, NO ONE in the entire store looked at me. XD I never saw a single person even glance at me, except for one little girl. And she just stared and stared and STARED.... Probably thought I was a birthday clown or something. XD

The only time I've really worn an anime costume not at a con is at Halloween, and I get weird looks even then ^_^. Last Halloween I had this 3-year-old child attached to the hip because she was fascinated with my face paint (little kids are so kyoote!). Every time I get a chance to cosplay outside a con, it gets ruined ~~;;. I was supposed to walk down the Strip in costume for a friend's Sociology project, but I was rejected :P.

Oh! But when I get in costume to take pics, weird things usually happen. I was at the park taking photos of Celes, and this guy pulls up in his car. He looks out his window, beckons to me, and licks his lips. Needless to say, he got the bird XD.

French tourists? Really? O_O What kind of clothes do you wear?

I got so many people (some of them 60 year old women) stopping me in the street asking me where I bought the leather military hat for my Rosiel costume (it didn't fit in my suitcase so I wore it on the way to the con). Everyone loved it. I was so surprised... I mean it looks like something out of a WWII movie. LOL

Which makes me think of a story... a friend of mine (she's asian) had cosplayed as Trowa in his 1999 calendar outfit (green military) and some guy stopped her in the street and started talking to her in German. She was so freaked. LOL.

> So anywho, when we went in, I tell you, NO ONE in the entire store looked at me.

Were they avoiding looking at you?

Ack, poor Tenshi! ;_; What a gross guy. Ugh. >_<;;;

I LOVE those hats! I have one (not leather), but it's too big on me. ^^; Need to get a smaller one....

> Were they avoiding looking at you?

Hehehe... Yes. XD I look like such a freak in Marion, there is no way anyone could possibly see that and not want to look at it. I guess Marion frightens people. XD

Mine is a little small... I'm worried it might be too tight to be worn with a wig... (I'll be branded by it anyway... I hate tight hats! The bane of buying online and sucking at centimer to inches conversions!)

I've never cosplayed besides at a con (or in my house lol). See, now I feel like I should try it at my college, but no one would think it was odd. Darn school of freaks lol. Although it's been getting more normal, guess it's time I shook things up. I admit I'm a bit scared by the idea of wearing a costume on the NY subway . . . but I may have to this August, lol! OO;;;

Hmm. Now I feel like going to the grocery in costume and scaring the (highly) conservative suburban Midwesterners in my town. *evil grin* This is a 'burb where an underage drinking arrest makes the paper; with something especially strange I might be headline-worthy!
