I just carry a bag with me and when someone asks for a picture, I take it off and set aside somewhere away from the picture area.

Hmm, good question. I'll probably be solo at my con in April, so I'm hoping they have lockers or something that I can stash my stuff in. I guess all I will really need to carry with me all the time is phone/money/camera.

Since I'll be cosplaying TP Zelda, I might try find a bag that would look like it goes with the outfit.

That is basically why I bring my boyfriend to cons.

Seriously though, I usually just put my bag behind me or hand it off to a friend. If you're wearing a costume that is too difficult to move around in to the extent that you can't put down a bag for a photo, definitely have a handler with you! Friends don't let friends cosplay ridiculous things alone.

When I first start to cosplay, my friend would hold my bag for me when someone was asking for my pic. But after an hour of doing that, they ditched me.

Since I have a boyfriend again, I usually just ask him to hold it for me. But for my current cosplay im working on, im making hidden pockets into my dress.

I definitely began hearing Bender's rendition of the "Single Female Lawyer" theme when I read that. Good show, madam.

Typically, all I really need with me is a small bag for my wallet, phone, and water, and water can just be carried most of the time, whatever (more incentive to drink it!). Generally, I try to just have a clutch type deal that at least fits the wallet and phone and attach it to a lanyard with my con badge. That way, when I remove it for pictures, that's it, no worries about my con badge showing or anything else.

Oh, I try. This year I managed to find a "Single Female Lawyer Ringtone" So I'm going to be having way too much fun this year with that.

I carry it in a backpack, usually, and just take it off for pictures. I know it doesn't match with my cosplay very well, but I have to be able to carry around my stuff somehow and I don't have any servant to carry it for me xD

I try to incorporate big invisible pockets in the pants of a lot of my cosplays. When this can't be done, I just carry a small shoulder bag that matches my cosplay. But that starts to not work so well when I load up on stuff at the dealer's room...

I like to take on my mother's role at cons and I'm always the bag person. I carry my closest friend's belongings in MY one bag (I would never carry other people's bags, fuck no) so I hold their iPads, money, maps, etc. in my bag and I literally do not let it go. If I'm taking a picture then I have one of my friends hold it, since we're all almost always together in cons anyways.

I generally don't carry much that's not part of the costume. It's a rarity that I'll even buy anything when I'm there. Most of my costumes include pockets, too. I rarely get relegated to being "bag bitch" as my wife and I go off and do our own thing at cons most of the time. If I HAVE to carry a bag, it's usually part of the costume. The Terminator Human Resistance costumes were my favorites because it had a back pack and something like 30 pockets and pouches at any given time.
