You've got to be kidding me.

That blog shouldn't even exist in the first place. It's just a way of bullying people into not wanting to cosplay at all. Now I (and everyone else as well) will probably be worried about someone asking to take a picture... o.O
This is one of those things that bugs me a bit. If it bothers you, don't view their site. Is it mean spirited? Sure. Are they going to change because they trampled on your feelings? Nope. Who cares what a bunch of douchebags think anyway? Did you have fun in your costume? Did you enjoy the con while you were there? Yes? Then screw them. Don't let internet dicks keep you down.

This kind of thing is so nice in words and doesn't work in practice.
Sometimes you can't ignore mean words, although you should always try that doesn't mean we should ignore assholes and let them be without letting them know that nobody approves of their actions.

So yeah my peeve is how bad resin smells. ><

Well, as long as you understand that they don't care if you approve or not, only that you react, then it's fine. Like I said, it's fine to feel upset, but don't torture yourself and keep giving them the attention they crave.

Peeve: accidently buying the wrong shade of fabric, thinking what your eye seen of the image and other references was accurate, then realizing later you were way offX"D i've done this twice with two tops i'm working on and with The princess of the crystals wig. Ohhhh tis all a learning process, that's how i'm viewing this, lol.

The slightly claustrophobic feeling I feel in just about every costume. I can't explain why, but I always seem to be moving a little bit more carefully and feel SO much bulkier, regardless of whether the costume is bulky or not. It's really weird, I could be dressed as Ellis from L4D2 and feel like I'm wearing a tractor trailer behind me.

Wow, that person must be too jealous and insecure of themselves if is thinking that you are going to go with somebody else just because some other people could find you attractive. Sounds sick.

Glad I'm not the only one who gets that feeling. I'm told I walk like a robot when I'm in cosplay.

Oh I agree with this, especially when wearing a white Hakama.

Yikes! It'll be my first time ever cosplaying this year. I just hope that doesn't happen to me. Not that my character is wearing anything revealing, but those people tend to be real jerks to cosplayers from what I've seen,

Don't be too worried, just aware. It's never happened to me, but then, I always crossplay non-revealing characters.

Thank you. Yeah, I shouldn't be too worried. Just as long as the media people aren't in my face or anything.

And if they are, hit them with a rake.

I mean kindly ask them to step away.

Then hit them with a rake.

I've never really been felt up at a con, and I'm a total creeper magnet. I've had guys put their arms around me in rather inappropriate ways when asking for a photo with me or when dancing with me at the formal dance, but pulling me way too close for comfort and/or placing a hand too close to my butt I don't really define as getting "felt up." I've been hit on by tons of guys, creeped on by tons of guys, grabbed by the arm or shoulder by guys, but never had anywhere below the top of my hip/the very top of my butt get touched, nor my breasts.

I think that as long as you are aware of your surroundings, don't let anyone get too close, and don't pose for pictures with people while wearing something sexy, you should be fine. Really, it isn't that common of an occurrence to be touched against your will in cosplay, at least in my experience. Hugs from nowhere will probably be your biggest concern if you don't like to be touched, as a lot of overly excited fans don't realize that people like their personal space and don't exactly like being hugged without permission, though I do see a lot less glomping and such these days than in years past. I've had way more issue with people invading my space verbally than physically.

If you aren't wearing anything revealing, you probably won't have any issues at all. I don't think I've ever had any problems with creepers in outfits like Lady Blackpearl, Eruca, etc., that aren't particularly sexy, but have had tons of problems as Ulala, Maj. Kusanagi, etc., where the character not only wears something revealing, but is known to be sexy. Just be on your guard, and you'll likely have zero issues at all!
