The worst thing you can do at a convention is nit-pick someone else’s cosplay/costume. I remember the first convention I went to. I was wearing my mandalorian costume which I had only completed a few days earlier. Apparently, this asstard was in the Mandalorian mercs so he felt like he needed to tell me what was what. So, he stood next to me, while I waited in line to get my badge, and picked out all the reasons I wouldn’t be allowed into the merc’s costume club. Most of the reasons were due to the materials I decided to use. No, I didn’t have a correct flak vest. Instead, I used an old, thick t-shirt as my vest. No, I wasn’t wearing a flight suit. Instead, I was wearing BDUs that my stepdad handed down to me. No, I wasn’t wearing the correct boots. You wanna know why? I don’t have a sewing machine. I have no way to get these items other than buying these things from people or companies. But, apparently, unlike this arse, I’m in college and I save up as much money as I can. So, I’m not gonna go buy a nice sewing machine or buy these components online.
But, thankfully, later on that day, I saw some other star wars peeps and they said my costume looked just fine which boosted my confidence (someone even said it was bad ass; so booyah).
Moral of the story? Don’t be an arse to other people. They put their time, sweat, and heart into their costumes. Just because it isn’t 100% correct or it doesn’t live up to your standards, doesn’t give you a right to criticize the person’s costume. Also, if someone does act an arse, ignore them. They’re just jealous. Am I right, or am I right?
