If this is your first time to cosplay at Comic-Con then CONgrats! Comic-Con is the cosplay Mecca of the nerd world so you made the right choice. In my latest SDCC Survival Guide episode we cover cosplay tips to help you start out.
Remember, the point of cosplaying is to have fun while expressing yourself. If you are a first timer, don’t take any of this too seriously. Some cosplayers will get more attention than you, you’ll get more attention than expected, you will get great feedback, and you’ll get some weird feedback. Some fans words will be incredibly uplifting and inspirational and a select few will say something odd or dumb. Either way, it’s important that you enjoy yourself and enjoy the con community. I commend you for stepping out and taking a risk. Being a cosplayer means you are a part of the show. Whether you are a first timer or a cosplay veteran, we are super grateful for every one of you. You inspire us with your creativity and passion- so remember that during all the long nights slaving over your costume.
