Weird cosplay/convention dreams

Since if you do cosplay a lot, or eagerly awaiting a convention, naturally your mind will conjure up a dream revolving around the subject as you sleep. So what have been some of your weird cosplay dreams?

For me, I had one about last minute going to AX and having to get dressed on the way. My cosplay was of Vocaloid Meiko, but for some reason my wig was all puffy and messy, and I couldn't get it back to normal! I tried to wet it down, push it down, put pins....it was bizzare, on top of that the convention center didn't look a thing like it actually does. It looked small and dim in the dream XD

Best one I ever had; a Pacific Rim jaeger mech-suit materialized in my apartment, but for some reason it had roller skates that made walking really difficult. Then a mascot-costumed kaiju cosplayer challenged me to a fight. I won. =D

Three to say.

- I was Edward Elric, with Alphonse, invading "The Castle of the Son of Nobuo Uematsu"... I remember it started with us going down these stairs in the dark, and I hear *CHING*CHING*CHING*CHING*CHING*CHING*CHING*CHING* .... I push Alphonse to the wall and we duck. Through the walls just above our heads, there were spears coming out of the wall. We pressed on, and found ourselves in a room with one of those metal eye things from the Zelda N64 games that need to be bombed to be destroyed. It shot out lazers, and we got by it. Eventually, we were walking down a hall, and I saw a door. As soon as I was opening it, I woke up.

- I was at a convention, and I was being chased by Tsubasa with huge white wings, flying around the con with a spear in his hand. *Tsubasa from Kannazuki no Miko*

- I was dressed as Finnegan from Trapt (PS2) and I was running late for Anime Boston, so I ran through Boston to get to the convention center.

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

I dreamt I was at a convention and there were Elsas (from Frozen) as far as the eye could see in all shapes AND sizes.

Somewhat related, there's a snowstorm raging outside. Damn Elsa cosplayers! Lol.

Again, not directly a cosplay dream, but after wearing Judal to a gathering I had a dream that I had ridiculously long hair that I kept tripping over. That's what I get from fussing about it so much, I guess.

I've had a lot, but my most recent involved me going to Anime North (which I am)(also what it looked like in my dream was probably not what the con actually looks like at all) and trying on my contacts for the first time and having them be too small to cover my eyes properly...

An older one I still remember was that I went to Japan and at a thrift store, found a cosplay of Miku in the song Like a Rolling Star, which I had wanted to cosplay at the time, but in the dream I only had Canadian money.

I had a dream recently that I got my eye poked out (don't remember how) like a month before a con and I was like "damn now I'll have to cosplay that girl with an eyepatch" (talking about Rikka Takanashi) and I started looking for all the stuff to do it... even though I've never seen that show

ETA: I forgot the best part- Some person at the con came up and rudely told me my eyepatch was on the wrong side, so I flashed him my gory poked-out eye and told him off

I had a few dreams were I am cosplaying characters I know of, but don't know much more than that. Not the character's name, the series or how the character interacts with other characters within the series.
I feel kind of silly in the dream cause I am unable to interact with anyone. I am usually never in character when I cosplay, but in the dream it's a big deal XD

I had a dream around 2006-ish just before I went to Anime Boston..I had a dream that I was in the Prudential Center mall, and I knew that the convention was supposed to be around there because I'd been there before, but no matter where I looked or how many circles I went in, I just couldn't get there. I then decided to ask for help, only to realize that all the people around me were freakishly tall and skinny, and had blurred out faces. (Think Slenderman, I guess...?) They just ignored me and walked past me like ghosts or something. It was actually really scary. ;_;

Well today I had a dream that when I checked my items' tracking I ordered for cosplay, it ended up in WYOMING. I was like "WHHHAAAAAAAAT?! SHOOT, I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT THAT VISOR AT WAL-MART!!!!" Hopefully that visor doesn't go to Wyoming in real life XD

A few weeks ago I dreamt that it was time for MCM. I got my hotel booked and it ended up being really far away. Not sure why as it is my usual hotel.

I then started unpacking, only to realize I had forgotten one outfit at home, the jewellery and wig for another costume and the third one was missing the trousers. I ended up having no costumes at all and spent 3 days walking around as myself. The worst part of the dream. I ended up sharing a hotel room with my best friend who hates anime (not sure why she was there for a convention) and she didn't even want me to go to the convention so I had to go over there by myself with no costume.

I had another one last night too but I don't remember what happened except that I was horrified when I woke up.

Last night I had the stupidest dream I think I've ever had. Weird fitful disjointed stress dreams about--get this--WHERE CAN I PUT THE ZIPPER IN THE DRESS I'M WORKING ON. OMG CAN'T SLEEP WHERE WILL THE ZIPPER GO WHAT CAN I DO

The amount of worry my subconscious is apparently willing to invest in that zipper is astounding.

Last night I dreamed I was painting Sheik's chainmail, but every time I put paint on, the mail started to dissolve. Dream-me decided that it was close enough to the color without the paint and that the holes would make it look battleworn. Dream-me wasn't having any of that drama.
