But I think your idea is a lot more thoughtful than hers. I was just thinking that the passing out candy part brought the memory back. While this idea wouldn't be for me, I think it's nice that you're doing it
Oh man, that's so rude! I'm really sorry that happened to you.
I would never do that to someone. I'm determined to make my note cards a good experience for everyone :>~

I want to do a Wendy cosplay for Dragon*Con2013, and I want to hand out Thimbles. Only problem is that no place sells thimbles in bulk for a reasonable price. So I was trying to think of a gift that would be Wendy like to supplement my supply or something for my Peter Pan to give out?

I'm going to be giving out gifts to the staff at AWA '13....because man oh man, they work their butts off to make sure the convention goes smoothly. And they've done such a good job handling any issues I've had come up and making one of my favourite convention so enjoyable.

I really just want them to have some little gift of appreciation...because it feels like staff doesn't get the love they need sometimes.

I'd say the cosplay I use most frequently is Ciel...so I'd like to do something elegant but easy to give out. Maybe little goody bags filled with candy and notes?

I'm not quite sure, but I know I'd like to be able to give them something

maybe little jars of 'fairy dust'?

but that might be messy..

The only other thing i can think of is a ribbon PFF.

I was thinking about the fairy dust, I've made them before. But I must say that I do not know what a PFF is, because I'm pretty sure you don't mean the Porcupine Freedom Festival (I came across is whilst searching for the true meaning)

You could also say "Fall into depravity" or "Curse your fate" while handing them out x3
Since this may be a spoiler to those that haven't watched or read it before I'm putting it in white so highlight it if you want to see~

I've done this quite a bit with a few of my costumes. :'D
I've had cookies and cake pops before, and everyone I came into contact with loved it.

I actually think that it's super cute when cosplayers hand things out that relate to their characters. c: I think that giving autographed "headshoots" as Gumi would be adorable. >w<

I'm cosplaying a Hello Kitty design and Pinkie Pie this year at Sakura Con and I'm getting a big bag of Dum-Dums to hand out after photos. xD" I have never gotten anything personally from anyone else, but I love the idea!
