Cosplay.com identifier for cons

It's come up a few times in various con threads that members of cosplay.com would like a way to identify each other at cons. So far the most popular suggestion seems to be to place an orange dot (sticker, highlighter, marker, crayon, whatever) in a corner of your badge. I'll be doing this at my cons this year - hope it catches on!

I think we should have printable badges like COSP-ML(I think?) does. They'd probably be more noticeable and easier to see. ^_^;

I don't know... do we really want a collection of colourful badges detracting from our costumes? ^__^

Although, my opinion shouldn't count, as I generally obfuscate even the convention badge, since it looks bad on pictures.

Why an orange dot? I would think a purple dot / ribbon would be more appropriate, given the site design. Or is purple taken by another group?

>obfuscate

Wow, I've learned a new word, thank you. I drove I-Con security nuts last year by keeping my badge and ribbon on my bag, not me. Sadly, since my staff rank has increased this year, I've been told specifically to keep it visible on my person.

cosplay.com badges or marking the original badge are good ideas, but i almost NEVER wear the con badge, so it probably wouldnt be any different...
i only wear it to get into the dealers room and places, although ive gotten in without it before....^_^;;

I believe orange was chosen because it's a bright color visible from a reasonable distance, and in opening this thread I stuck with it since it had been discussed on a couple of different con threads. I would prefer something on the con badge, since I don't want to be putting any more stickers/ribbons on my costume than necessary.

I think a dot would be better, since it's more on your costume. Aside from that, I've got a Method:Cosplay badge to wear so three badges x_X Yeah I just don't know about that.

Yeah, the orange dot sounds like the best idea. I don't wanna be wearing any more badges than I have to :\

And something really bright like day-glo orange would even hopefully stand out to people with cruddy eyesight, like me. Small badges and duller colored stickers wouldn't register well unless close, but a bright dot on badge should show up better from a distance.

and speaking of which, I'll be doing a gathering of sorts for Fanime and cosplay.com people at AX by the poolside at the westin hotel. I'm shooting it for friday morning/early afternoon and I'll be wearing my orange dot on my badge as well

Yeah, I obscure my badge quite well, too. I'm with Rosiel on this...don't want to mess up potentially otherwise-nice photos, you know. And I'm also agreeing with kitty_neko that a badge is just for getting into the dealers' room basically (if -that-)...I may stop getting badges all together and just hall-cosplay.
Besides, do I really want people to connect me to the board? Hehe...it's bad enough so many already do.

I still think the best way to meet up with cp.com people is to show up to the pre-con night gatherings or the offical photo shoot or just join a big series group with lots of other people from here. I guess I just don't see why we have to track each other down in the halls randomly. Are secret handshakes next? ^_-
