This is a con, a KID-FRIENDLY con that has had 8-year olds around before, you DO NOT swear at the top of your lungs because so-and-so chracter is hugging so-and-so. You DO NOT drop your pants in the middle of the hallway and make so-and-so character do them back up because you like the pairing.
And as far as the photoshoot goes, Prussia in charge of shoot, you did NOT take anyone's age, you have no clue how old people are, so please don't tell us to 'get in front of that fxxxing wall!'.
Just....Ugh. I'm probably never cosplaying Italy again, for fear I'll meet that Germany (first two examples), and that she'll latch onto me, and then I'll get labeled as a bad fan again. I just...I don't even....dgfgjdkjf.
I may just cosplay a minor character instead. One that can't be constantly put on the spot and awkwardly go along with it. Maybe Norway. Maybe.
I'm sorry that happened to you. But honestly, don't let some bad con ruin the experience for you. I've cosplayed Hetalia at several cons, and the only one I had trouble at was Fanime (and that one is huge).

The best way to avoid that drama is to just... avoid it. Don't hang around the crazy fans, don't go to the gatherings, etc. I was Prussia and my girlfriend was France at Fanime. We'd hang with a few other friends in Hetalia cosplay. Then some crazy fans would come up and like, spaz out, and I would be stern and tell them it was NOT okay to do that, etc, and they'd usually leave me alone. Due to this, my friend got tagged at the con as "Scary Germany" but you know what? That kept the crazies away.

It sucks that happened, but you just gotta be strong. Some of the fans can get hectic, but I usually only see that at super tiny cons (full of kids) or really large cons (full of adults AND kids). And really, theres the good fans there too. But they're probably avoiding people as well xDD;;

Dude, I feel bad for Hetalia fans that know the limitations and understand what is (y'know, illegal) or inappropriate to do in public or in general. The rest of them make it verrrry easy to make very wrong generalizations about the fandom.

Selling my Sailor Moon costume...it's the first time I'm selling one of my costumes, and I'm kind of sad to see it go. But I hope someone can give it lots of love and wear <3

Stop being so closeminded. Just because someone cosplays doesn't mean they're an otaku or a weeaboo.

I love Miku's outfits. Like, all of them.
No, that's a lie, but I like a heck of a lot of them.

I got my hair cut like Haruhi from Ouran. It's darker than hers, but I'm sensing Haruhi closet cosplays coming. I'm around the same size as her....if you get what I mean. XD

I am so jealous. I don't have the guts for that costume, even though I LOVE the design. I might do Rin append in the future because that one is super adorable aswell!

Yeah, it gets annoying when people say to avoid Hetalia fans cuz we're "crazy" or whatever. Uhhh. No. Crazy people are crazy. Some crazy people just happen to be Hetalia fans. Coincidence, really. I'm a Hetalia fan, I adamantly cosplay from it, draw fanart, etc. But I'm not some psycho fan like some are 8|;;

Quite honestly, I hadn't encountered ANY bad fans until Fanime. And I think thats because it was a gigantic anime con. And they were like, 14. *shrugs*

TBQH, I met nice Hetalia fans at my very first anime convention, and all of the ones I've been to since then have been crazy .___.;; I do honestly avoid them. And I don't blame conventions for putting limitations on things like no flags or things like that. I feel like it's better for the cons to protect themselves from the liability of crazy con goers than to allow behavior like that. (It is also why I have no problems with the ban on yaoi/yuri paddles and the like, so it's not all based on Hetalia.)

But yeah. I do feel bad for the sane Hetalia cosplayers that get roped into the "Oh man you're nuts" kind of view.

Woot! Another theater manager just said the face paint would be fine. No worries about getting thrown out or something xD Now, I've also decided not to paint my palms, which will look really weird, but I've got to be able to touch stuff and actually go to the bathroom >.> I'm super duper supercalifradgilisticexpiallidocious (sp? xDDD) excited for tonight!

Although I know this is making fun of Lady GaGa, I feel like it can be a cosplay anthem.

I met the most amazing Hetalia fans EVER at my first cosplay gathering, and now they're my best friends. Ever. All the next cons, I had met no bad fans. Fanime was the first time I EVER encountered people like that. So I just avoided them and enjoyed myself.

Trying to figure out whether I should not make this wing mod that I haven't quite designed it to be hall ready but will be photoshoot ready. I guess for now, I'll make it and make the slight modifications to the structure to make it photoshoot ready should it come up.

It's essentially for a crossplay that will lead to a scene that from either end, I just don't want to do but will suck it up for a great photo. The character is a girl who is often mistaken for a boy with the other character being a guy who is crossdressing as a girl. My hope as the first character is that the guy is being played by a girl to lessen the awkwardness I'll be experiencing...

Yargh!

Well, since it decided to start raining, instead of spray painting the Stocking sword, I finally restyled my Minako wig and put in the white pins. Now that's one less thing to worry about. Hopefully my armband will come in today since I'm not going to be home for a week.

Phew, I got through cutting about just over 3 1/2 metres of fabric. Yeah, my back hurts.
I like how flowy the skirt is, only was able to cut out two tiers (out of three) of the skirt, and cut out two leotard patterns (as I want to double up the fabric).
Doing more cutting tomorrow.. Fun.
