Non convention cosplay fun

Sometimes, my wife and I will wear parts of our cosplay stuff as part of our regular clothing. Like how she'll wear her Shippuden Hinata sandals with her regular clothes during the spring and summer, and I'll wear my Nudist Beach Jakuzure hat sometimes.

I did try something fun at work (pmc), where I shot a Chinese QBU-10 (Chinese Type 10 rifle, 12.7x108mm) while dressed like Sinon. This is a large rifle that pushes alot of air around when fired. It blew my wig off the first time. Then I moved the earmuffs so they held it down.

So, what do you all do for non con fun?
Shiro (Deadman wonderland)
Asami Sato (TloK)
Toph Beifong (Tla)
Natsume (.hack)
Nonon Jakuzure: Nudist Beach (Kill la Kill)
Planned/working on
Ryuko Matoi (KlK)
Black Rose (.hack)
Sinon (Sao)

The only "social gatherings" I attend outside of conventions are usually with my family and because they express a great amount of disdain for me cosplaying in public unfortunately I don't have the luxury of cosplaying outside of conventions x-x

I live with one of my cosplay buddies, so whenever one of us starts working on a cosplay, it's always a good time.

...And the fabric store I work at lets us dress in costume for Halloween week, so that'll be fun.

I live in a city with a big cosplay and con scene, so there's a lot of cons (most of which I attend, as an artist. Those, though, my cosplays are very simple because I can't do anything fancy when working a table) and at least a monthly smaller non-convention event like a picnic or skating or a beach party. I certainly don't need to do random costume fun outside of photoshoots anymore.

Unless there is a 75% off sale at the Fabric store. Then you're on your own. And get the hell out of my way." <3

I rarely ever work on cosplay things alone. I'm either with my sister or one of my cosplay friends. It definitely makes it more fun. Also, my school has special days for dressing up and each ones a different theme so I have a lot of fun with that, and on the last day of school my cosplaying friends all went as attack on titan characters.

I wish my sister and I were closer in age so I could go cosplaying with her, but being the fact she got both my parents to Christianity she probably wouldn't appreciate anime very highly.
