Cosplay at major landmarks: Have you ever?

Hey guys, it's survey time again.

PLEASE, I ask that if you're reading this, reply to it, even if your answer is no. I need 100 responses, and I don't just want to hear from the yes people, it'll screw up the results.

My question: Have you ever cosplayed while visiting a major landmark?

For reference, define "major" as a place that most everyone is familiar with, like the Alamo, Disney World, the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, Yankee Stadium, things like that.

Again, just throw me a yes or no. Stories and pics are welcome, of course.

Most major places don't allow it (Disney has a strict no costumes rule, for example), so no, never. Also, there's not many world-famous landmarks where I live to try that at anyway. Other local public locations though (like big old cathedrals, city hall, etc.), yes, for photoshoot purposes.

True about the Disney thing, I just threw that in there for example when I first wrote the question a while back.

I haven't because when I wear a cosplay, I aim for getting pictures. Landmarks are crawling with people that it would probably be super difficult to find a location with no bodies around.

no, unless the gaylord gazebo counts as a national landmark.

Nope, pretty much the only places I've worn my cosplays to have been convention venues.

Uhh...not unless you count the 16th Street Mall in Downtown Denver (which is where most of the conventions I go to are held anyway).

In my country the New National Stadium has become a mayor landmark that has been the scenario of various cons, but since the stadium shape is not visible from any possible photo I don't think it counts.

I've run around midtown Manhattan in cosplay, so I can say that I've cosplayed at Rockefeller Center and in Times Square. Also at One Penn Plaza.
So yes, I've cosplayed at some major landmarks. Hell, I cosplay AS a landmark.

Nope. Most landmarks here in St. Louis are: strict on security, (Gateway Arch, Busch Stadium) impractical/dangerous for anything other than casual cosplay, (City Museum, Magic House) too crowded, (zoo, Delmar Loop) or solemn/religious/otherwise disrespectful to cosplay at. (Soldiers' Memorial, the New Cathedral)

The Botanical Gardens and Laumeier Sculpture Park are possibilities, though.

I had a shoot in the ruins of a 13th-18th century abbey, but other than not c;
Like many people said most places seem too crowded anyway (and I think there would be problems with props -especially weapons- as well)

Haven't done in a major landmark, but have at a few historical sites.

I've cosplayed at Fort Meigs in Ohio http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3583361/

In the ruins and cultural center of Takatsuki castle, Japan. Which is the town I lived in. http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3520847/

And my local shrine when I lived in Japan. http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3292181/

I've also cosplayed in a few abandoned buildings, but that's another story.

No, I've only ever cosplayed at cons so only at convention centers or colleges (which you could consider both local/regional landmarks but nothing beyond that). I've only ever had one cosplay I would have liked to take "off-road" for some photos (Lunara) but I would have just gone to a local woods or park, not a national park.

Well I take that back, I have cosplayed (or at least costumed, for generic stuff) for Halloween but that was just for local bars which again, aren't really landmarks.
