Accidental Cosplay

A lot of our costumes are big and fancy and we have to intentionally put them on, but there are a few characters with much more subtle costumes. So, have you ever accidently went out dressed exactly like someone, only to realize it later?

I have the t-shirt Dib wears on Invader Zim. And one day I was wearing it w/ black jeans on my day off. So, when I got invited to come out and it was chilly, I said, "sure, just let me grab a coat," and I grabbed my black trench coat, and my black boots (you'd think I'd have realized what I was doing at some point). Casually walking around later, I looked down, then at them and said, "Why did you let me leave the house dressed like this?"

My friend and I were going to go to a small local comic con for the day. I was cosplaying Connor from Assassin's Creed III, and he decided to put on a black shirt and a matching black vest and pair of pants from a suit to 'see what people might think he was cosplaying'. He is also bald. He ended up completely unintentionally doing a rather good Wilson Fisk cosplay, having never even seen Daredevil (he did get mistaken for Fisk several times).

Whenever I wear my scruffy purple wig and goggles at a con (I'm wearing them here. http://whimsicalsquidco.deviantart.c...ture-491393593 ), I usually get asked if I'm cosplaying Ramona Flowers.

I have a green wool poncho with a hood. I often wear it with a white button-up and a pair of brown knee pants and boots, because I love all of those things individually.

And then I walk out the door and suddenly Sie sind das Essen und wir sind die Jäger

I once had a family member at a convention with me in a vest, white button down and nicer pants be mistaken for Tobari-sensei from Nabari no Ou.

More recently, I was out to go see a musical with my mom. I put on a blue dress I had recently bought. Long and behold, most of the female cast of the show were also wearing light blue dresses. I got a lot of stares that day.

Once at my old job when I worked in an office I was had accidentally dressed as Hoskins from Jurassic World. I didn't realize till I got to work. I laughed but none of my co workers noticed since well Hoskins outfit is pretty normal looking.

For a convention for the first time I actually didn't know what to dress up as so I just wore my black trench coat, a grayish tie and hat. One person asked me if I was the Silver Shroud from Fallout 4. Well I had no idea who that was at the time since I didn't get a chance to play Fallout 4. Looked it up and well now it's a legit costume I actually put together in my closet ha ha ha.

A few weeks ago, I uploaded a selfie on Facebook of me in my boyfriend's car for a selfie thread. I was wearing a red long sleeved stretch pleather crop top and a gold pleather miniskirt. Everyone who replied to my pic said I looked like "hot fem CEO Iron Man".

Magyarita, that sounds like something I'd run with, a little more detail and it'd be a pretty sweet costume.

I accidentally cosplayed Marshall Lee to my family's Christmas gathering last year. Due to not being a Marvel or DC hero, nobody noticed but one of my cousins.

At this school I used to work at, we had a WEIRD amount of dress up days. Like, once a month we'd turn into a tiny convention. Very hilarious, really.

We had a Dress As Your Favorite Celebrity Day. I don't have a favorite celebrity, I don't particularly care, so I just wore my favorite outfit and braided my hair up. Done. I looked good, I was happy, close enough.

A parent asked me if I was Princess Leia. Um. Sure! So that was me, I was Princess Leia for the rest of the day.

... the outfit was black, even ...

I went hiking in Yosemite, was wearing a white hoodie, had a camera bag strapped to me from shoulder to hip, and hiking boots. I also had a pocket knight strapped to my belt. It started raining a bit so I put my hood up and realized I looked exactly like a modern minimalist assassin from Assassin's Creed. Once the realization hit I tried extra hard to scale rocks and climb trees. It was a ton of fun.

I don't have too many cosplays that are mostly comprised of casual clothes. The closest I may have gotten was I probably would have worn one of my red shirts with my brown pants at some point, which is what I wore as a base for my femHeavy from TF2. Without the boots and vest and stuff though I don't think anyone would've considered it a cosplay though.

There's also my blue hoodie and basketball shorts for Sans which I may have worn together outside of cosplay once for a workout. That's more likely to get looks today, but I don't exactly...work out often, so it's not something I'll wear together outside of a con again any time soon.

At the Comic expo this year, my sister and I decided to wear Yukata's (she has a ton from when she lived in Japan). Mine was green with yellow flowers and I had pinned it up above my knees..and I had a big yellow bow on the back. My hair is dark and shoulder length and I had a big clip in my hair.
I had a few people asking if I was Tsukihi from Bakemonogateri. I had never actually seen the anime before either, so I was confused and they googled it and showed it to me and I resembled her quite well! It was awesome. I just went with that for the rest of the day when people asked.

I don't know if I ever did that 100% unintentionally but I did attend a con as a staff wearing a Sumeragi Lee Noriega closet cosplay once. Also I used to go to exams dressing like Izaya Orihara to give myself a confidence boost, lol.
