What cosplays of yours can you wear outside of cons?

Without being stared at? I think I could get away with Kagome. Or any school girl cosplay.

I'd say Yoite from Nabari no Ou is a pretty good outside-of-con cosplay. He sort of resembles a trendy girl anyway. xD

I get people staring at me when I'm wearing normal clothing (tanktops, jeans, shorts, dresses, jackets, etc), so any cosplay of mine is automatically out. o:

I can wear all my cosplays outside, technically.
Sebastian (Kuroshitsuji), I can wear it on normal basis without getting stared at so much.
As for upcoming cosplays for AX, I'm sure I cannot get away without being judged at, which I don't mind so much.
Gakupo's long purple wig alone is making my friends IRL give me weird looks.

Maybe Yuki Eiri, although the last time I wore that one outside a con I got a couple at a bar arguing my gender. (Yay...? Haha.)

The rest either have wild hair or very unusual clothing, and nearly all are crossplays.

Nero from Devil May Cry 4 actually looks pretty normal... minus Deathbringer Demon Arm. LoL. Since He's my new project, I cn get away with cosplaying in public much easier with Nero than with Cloud Strife. ^.^

I wore my casual Canada to the supermarket. The cashier asked me if I was a Canada nut, or something (my red hoodie has a white maple leaf on the front). I smiled and nodded. He hit the nail on the head without even knowing it.

I've worn my Hipster! Ariel cosplay to Downtown Disney, but that was for a photoshoot. xD I'm pretty sure I could get away with wearing my Hipster! Ariel and Kim Pine cosplays out in public without getting too many stares. P:

Rinoa would likely be no problem at all since all she has is a tank top, shorts, denim skirt, and a duster jacket with arm warmers. Nope no prob at all. :P

I've got Kiba's jacket from both Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, I wear both of those everywhere and can pass as normal... of course I might get stares if I had the red fang marks on my cheeks tho! XP

I've got Wolf's Rain on my list of cosplays I wanna do, and I'd say any of those characters' costumes could pass IRL

Well when it comes to not being stared at~ Izaya from DRRR. I look more flamboyant than usual, but I dont get stared at. That goes for Ronadl Knox (Kuroshitsuji) as well! He pretty much looks like a young businessman with gloves XD
Most of my cosplays are pretty fancy so to speak =O So it is these, and the closet cosplays that I can wear in Public without being stared at.

i can wear sebastian out in public if i leave out the tailcoat. i just get asked why i'm all dressed up

i can wear my germany (minus coat and cross) and covert ops havoc... that's about it. they're both from random stuff in my closet, i just don't usually wear those things together. i've had a little trouble with germany before, but i don't think it was a completely random incident :/ what's so offensive about green pants and hat and a black beater and workboots?

my other costumes are pretty distinctive, if not for the clothing than at least for the wig. i couldn't imagine going around walmart in ukitake or uniform havoc (again), or my Turk because even though that's just a black suit the hair is very noticeable

I'm making my Garlock Simon jacket functional outside of cosplay. Here's hoping people don't think I'm in a gang/the Mafia.
