What was your worst con experience? also i'd post pics but they're on my camera at home
Our friends surprised us with passes like the week before. we had zero time to plan, so just just put on a black sailor uniform and dyed some of her hair, I had cowboy stuff laying around and what not. the whole process was a mess
Anyone else find it funny how so many guys assume cosplayers are fake geek girls, when we have men coming to this board all the time who don't even know the names of the characters they're talking about?

Luckily I only heard it once (everyone else seemed to recognise it), but it was half-amusing, half-eye-roll-worthy.
I think with "rugged gunslinger archetype" costumes, you need to be really exact about details because while the character types don't occur often, they tend to be visually memorable. Overwatch being the recent con scourge also doesn't help the recognisability of non-McCree cowboys.
