At last year's NYCC, I was cosplaying Lucy Saxon, a more minor character from Doctor Who. I got a lot of "Who are you?"'s from even some obvious Whovians, but I was expecting that. What I wasn't expecting was someone to ask if I was River Song, a character that looks nothing like her, dresses nothing like her, and acts nothing like her.

I was wearing a long cloak that is white on the inside and black on the outside and I was asked if I was cosplaying someone from Bleach. *sigh* I did not have any symbol on my back, at all.
Another story: End of the night at a con, so I had changed most of my costume to be more comfortable. I had gotten a fedora a few weeks prior for my birthday. So I was sitting there with blue FMA pants, heavy black boots, a black t-shirt, and a fedora and these two guys come up to me (fairly sure they were drunk) and asked for a few pictures with them and me in it. I was like... "sure?..." So they took the pictures and pretty sure they said something about Batman, which is weird. LOL. Also had my pic in all the FMA military uniform while wearing one of those SSJ paper hair thingies they were giving out in the Dealers Room last year.

I have a strong feeling my cosplay will be confusing!

Why? So I want to cosplay as someone to Delta H Con, I want to cosplay Cure Black, but I will not have enough time! Then I decide to go as Cure Moonlight Mirage (by the way, minor character) and people will probably confuse me for someone else :|

My female Loki was mistaken a lot, but I am re-working it anyway so hopefully it'll be a bit more recognizable. The worst one was probably when someone asked me on Free Comic Book Day one of the employees at one of the comic book stores asked if I was Zelda in my Loki cosplay o.o

My fiance cosplays Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2 and he always gets people asking if he's from Rep the Genetic Oprah, usually a few times each convention he's gone to XD

I was browsing swords in the dealer's room and two guys were a couple feet away trying to figure out who I was. It was really amusing because they actually guessed right, but they were both to shy to ask me to confirm their guess!
They were nudging each other saying things like, "You ask her!," "No, you ask her!"
I had to leave because I was an the verge of laughing!

Delta H Con 2013 - I was cosplaying Cure Moonlight Mirage from Heartcatch Pretty Cure! and someone confused me as Blair from Soul Eater.

"Are you cosplaying Blair?"
"Oh, who are you then?"
"I'm Cure Moonlight Mirage from Heartcatch Pretty Cure!" (the "!" is part of the anime title)

I was wearing my Balin costume from The Hobbit and once a person asked me whether I was Thorin Oakenshield. oTL|||

Then there was my friend who was Cos-ing Kili. She kept being asked whether she was cosing as Thorin Oakenshield repeatedly. She was ready to bludgeon me with her sword at the end of the day as I was laughing so much. XDDD

This past AnimeNext, I was walking past some people in my Magolor costume and I heard a guy go, "That's either a Pokemon or a Digimon, I just can't tell which one."

The joke is on him, it's from Kirby! Though I've seen way more Pokemon/Digimon gijinkas so I can easily see how he'd get that idea.

Planned Costumes
The King (Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star) || Nagisa Shiota (Assassination Classroom) || Sapphire (Steven Universe)
Paintra (Kirby Triple Deluxe) || Pearl (Steven Universe) || Lapis Lazuli (Steven Universe)
Chara (Undertale)

Upcoming Cons
Kotoricon 2016(?) || Katsucon 2016 || AnimeNext 2016(?)

I don't remember if I posted that here already, but it was pretty weird that people called me "Snow White" in my Mulan Cosplay. I didn't remember Snow White wearing a bun, a pink dress and Asian fashion...

But then again, my friend who cosplayed Cinderella is called "Belle" all the time. Yeah sure...

The first time I cosplayed (as Midvalley the Hornfreak - Trigun) people kept asking me if I was from cowboy bebop. This was semi-frustrating since I was walking around with a group that was clearly dressed up as characters from Trigun. Could have been much worse I suppose.

My only other cosplay has been Luffy (One Piece). Most people recognize his character, so I havent really had any other cases of mistaken identity... :P
