First year D*C cosplay question

Hey Everyone!

This is my first year for D*C, and I've heared a lot of mixed things about cosplaying at D*C. I typically only cosplay at NYCC and I was wondering since D*C seems to been from Friday-Monday instead of the Thrusday-Sunday that I'm use to what days do people normally cosplay on?

Also, is D*C normally Friday-Monday every year? Sorry for all the awful noobish questions ><.

Many people are in full-blown Con-mode by Thursday. There are alot of pre-parties where people cosplay Thursday night, particularly for track-specific meet-and-greets, and I've seen some eager folks just wearing their cosplays Thursday afternoon while people are checking in and getting pumped (less common though). Friday morning onward, there is serious cosplay anywhere you look. Saturday is when the most people cosplay, or bring out the big guns, so to say, but plenty of people are dressed up the entire weekend. I've never actually stayed on Monday (unless you count walking to MARTA at 9am after staying up all night) because I usually work, so I can't say what Monday's like.

It's always Labor Day weekend, so yeah, the (Thursday!) Friday-Monday schedule is the norm.

I agree. Fri-Sat-Sun are full blown mode, along with the biggest crowds. I would put Thursday ahead of Monday in terms of costume numbers by a significant margin. Usually by Monday, people are leaving and don't have time to costume and change and all that. I hope you have a blast! First time's always magical.
Dragon*Con-goer for life!

2016 Plans: Bebop and Rocksteady, Captain Atlanta Falcon, something comfy.
