Cosplayer Problems on Halloween

Posted by Unknown Thursday, October 31, 2013
Halloween is the one time of the year when everyone wears a costume and goes out—unless you're a cosplayer, in which case this is just another night out for you. Many cosplayers still consider Halloween to be one of their favorite holidays; it just doesn't have the same meaning that it used to.

With all of the costumes a cosplayer owns, you might think picking out a Halloween costume is an easy choice, right? Wrong! The decision to pick out a Halloween costume might be an even harder choice than what to wear at Comic Con. Why is it so difficult picking out ONE costume for ONE night?

What do cosplayers wear on Halloween

Chances are, you're going out to a bar or party. What could possibly go wrong?!

Someone could spill their drink on you… or worse.

All the time spent working on intricate armor and props can be completely destroyed in a matter of seconds by one drunken idiot.

Unless you're Sailor Moon or an Avenger, chances are no one will know who you're dressed up as.

And what's worse is this person will probably beat you in a Halloween costume contest:

As cool as it is that everyone is accepting the "nerd community," once you start going to conventions, you can't quite look at store-bought costumes the same way again.

If you're not a cosplayer, don't be "that guy" and ask the first cosplayer you can think of to borrow their cosplays or have them make you one on October 30. They probably won't be too happy.

Because on October 30, this is probably what's going through a cosplayer's mind:

Screw it! I'm going as a pirate again!
Picking a costume is stressful, but once it's decided, they plan on going out and enjoying Halloween just like everyone else.
