[x] Embarressing Convention/Cosplay Moments

If you're like me, you like to share your embarrassments in order to feel better about them or at least laugh about them with others. Soon enough, you realize the moment isn't as bad as you thought it was. Well, what has been your most embarrassing convention/cosplay moments?

Mine? 2009. My first real large anime convention; I was extremely shy back then and I joined a cosplay mystery game. The scripts were confusing to me but others understood them pretty well. I had to come up with something funny on the spot and I swear I could hear crickets. Either I was too quiet or looked like I had no idea what I was doing.

2015. Ikkicon. I waited 3hrs with my lil sister in a pre-registration line when we could've been in the convention the moment we arrived. The registration booth had no lines. We felt foolish. ;w; The volunteers told us we were in the right line. I even asked "Is this the registration line?" "Yes." I even asked them twice. We felt angry, embarrassed and sad. So my sister started crying when we were told we were in the wrong line. Oh lawdy. Luckily they let us stay in front anway.

So, that's pretty much all I have for embarrassing moments.

UBcon 2014, when I tripped, scraped up my knee, and sent my props flying across the stage in pieces during my skit in the cosplay contest.

Like 5 years ago I was cosplaying the girl Ciel with the huge dress, first time I ever wore a dress or anything like that and I would constantly trip on the dress and one time I was leaving the courtyard area which has 2 steps leading down the the normal floor and my dress was so big I couldn't see them, so I kept walking like I normally would, missed the steps and completely face planted.

I immediately laughed at myself and still do! Lesson learned: if you are going to do a ball gown, be aware of your surroundings.

finished my quarian cosplay just in time for a convention. The armour pieces started to fall off right away, pretty much everything was broken. So much shame and embarrassment felt that day. Since then i trashed that costume and have moved onto bigger and better things. I might return to quarians one day though, i don't in often but when i do it's usually temporary.

It wasn't that embarrassing since only my friends saw it, but it was quite annoying and frustrating when I broke a prop gun I had made right after getting out of the car when I tried to put it in my holster too fast. Luckily, I was able to get some glue and fix it enough so that I could still get some pictures with it.

When I spilled cherry coke all over my white shirt while I was cosplay as Squall on the last day of my first con, I screamed "Holy SHIT!! Is this backlash from a dead party member or something!!" The people around me thought it was funny, and it made me less embarrassed about spilling on myself like a damn child..

I couldn't get my helmet off when I was on the Pop Asia stage at MCM last year that was pretty embarrassing.
It finally came off but I nearly ripped my elf ears off.

I haven't been to many cons yet but I think getting horrendously drunk at NDK NYE was probably the most embarrassing thing ever, especially because I begged my boyfriend to dance with me when I went back downstairs into the ballroom and I almost dragged him down with me a few times.

I accidentally flashed the attendees of Tora-con once. My Mey-Rin costume has a circle skirt, and I twirled onstage... Luckily I was wearing clean underthings and anime con attendees tend to be accepting of getting to see a maid's panties.

Oh man I've seen so many girls' underwear because of twirling haha! Whenever that happens I always scream internally "why aren't you wearing shorts underneath instead!!!???"

Back in 2011 during a cosplay contest the cut my music off too soon, so I just kind of stopped and stood there like a deer in the headlights. What's worse, my wig kept getting in my face, so I probably looked like an idiot, pushing it out of my eyes every five seconds. It was so embarrassing!

I saw this happen to a few cosplayers at the cons I go to. It's no big deal, it happens. Most of us are more focused on the technical difficulties instead of the cosplayer at the time it happens.

In my Rail tracer cosplay last Anime USA, I performed a roll on the ground to show off and be in character. Unfortunately, my pants were a bit too small for my size. While they were fine for standing and walking, I found out the hard way acrobatics were out of the question when my pants ripped at the crotch. :/

Shorts are kind of a statement like you expected to lift up your skirt at some point. Its not that bad to run around in panties at a con. That black stuff beneath the two fabric pieces hanging down on my Whitemane cosplay is basically exactly that: black panties with thights. Funny...if you think about it the less fabric you have to cover them, the less people will notice its not more than underwear.

The only embarrasing thing that I happened to me at a con, was at Blizzcon. I had spend most of the day inside the convention hall, which had a pretty strong air condition, much stronger than I'm used to in Germany. Outside the convention center were around 32C° and when I stepped outside and walked to the food trucks to get some lunch, it didn't take long for me to feel dizzy and my legs getting weak. I had to lay down next to one of the food trucks, which wasn't easy, because I was wearing armor, including a breastplate, at that time. Even if I didn't felt well and I had friends with me...god it felt so embarrassing to lay down like an awkward kind of turtle next to some strangers.
