Went to the one in London sans costume. Here's my thoughts.
- Harley Quinn is done to death, even men dressed as her. Don't. - Don't wear Captain America/Deadpool/any superhero costume if it's a cheap one-piece or if you're fat. Sorry, you may love that character but even in an on-point costume you'll still look stupid and all people will remember is you being fat, cheap, or both. - Lots of the following: Deadpool, Captain America, Spiderman, Overwatch characters, Jedi/any Star Wars, Disney Princesses, all sorts of anime-related stuff I couldn't name. - The ones that stood out were different. One guy was about 8 ft tall in Space Marine power armour, amazing but a lot of effort and expense. Another was dressed in Fallout power armour and that was equally memorable. - Lesser-known DC characters are a good bet, not as seen as Marvel stuff. Classic sci-fi works as well, I didn't see anyone dressed as a Stargate/BSG/Farscape character for example, and some of those are fairly simple to do and will get people asking who you are or remembering you were the only one they saw. - An early Doctor Who could work if you're into that, don't do any of the post Eccelstone characters there's loads of those around. The Peter Davison one in the cricket stuff should be fairly simple to pull off but will earn you lots of spirited discussion on who was the best Doctor cause most people think he was the worst. - Be prepared to sweat to death if your costume isn't easily removable. Lots of people mentioned they were basically sweat in a costume half way through the day. - Having props in your costume, especially extras, that kids can hold when they ask for photos of you always goes down well.
All I can think of off the top of my head. It was a great day so just enjoy the sights and try not to blow all your money on merch/photos/autographs.
Another cheap easy one. Is to get some sort of plastic platform and get all green or tan or blue military outfit. And paint any exposed skin the same color and go as one of those green plastic army men.
>>734426290 Bruh conventions are the best place to talk to people because 90% of the people there are the same socially enept dorks like you. Also cosplay chicks are slutty as fuck. You can easily get your dick sucked if you just act a smidge confident
Shave your head, wear a red tie, go as Agent 47 from Hitman.
Buy a Payday mask. It's a video game about bank robbers. The masks are iconic and mainstream enough that people will know what you are doing. To go all out buy a cheap airsoft pistol and leg holster and a cheap airsoft chest rig o it looks like you are wearing body armor and have a handgun. This fits in with how the game mechanics work.
Get a cheap little puck light from home depot, they are little battery powered things that turn on when you push them so you can light a closet or something without running wires. Get a string of battery powered Christmas lights and wrap those around the puck. What you are trying to replicate is JUST the arc reactor that Tony Stark has in his chest. Go in blue jeans and a black wife beater shit like what Tony wears in his workshop. You are cosplaying Tony Stark, not Iron Man.
Serious answer, almost no one makes their own costumes anymore (even e-famous cosplayers who used to) as the quality of premade ones have skyrocketed in the last couple of years. Look up Chinese manufactures specifically on Taobao or local commissioners.
>>734428480 I know and I would if I could. It's just not in my control and we'd be better off not talking to each other. The people I hang with are higher on the social level than I am and they'd easily make fun of them and me. I don't want to make them feel bad just because they wanted to talk to me.
>>734429053 I know this is b and were supposed to be memey fags but honestly if the people you hang out with would so quickly put down your interests then you shouldn't hang with them, they're shitty people.
>>734429178 It's not so much that they put down the interests. It's just that we all roast each other all the time, like usual guy stuff. Considering the people that come here, I'm afraid they'll (my people) come off as dicks and hurt their feelings.
If I even bothered talking to some chick there she'll probably be uninteresting and there for attention. She wouldn't get along with my group most lilely.
>>734427682 >You can easily get your dick sucked Can confirm, met this girl in the bus on the way to a con, she was all over me the whole day, said i was very kissable at one point... i'm usually horny for cosplayer girls but that one really turned me off though, not sure why, maybe it was the fact that she kept trying to impress me by telling all sorts of stupid lies about having a huuge collection of action figures, collectibles etc... i mean, common, i collect stuff, i can tell when the person has no idea of what she is talking about, at first i was like "hu, she really wants to impress me" but later it felt like she was compulsive about it... honestly, i think i dodged a crazy bulled that day... but yeah, you can get your prick sucked in no time.
that hillbilly kid from l4d numa numa guy your waifu deprived class from dark souls characters from risk of rain scott pilgrim jesus wirt from over the garden wall that bald guy that you always see in porn you
>>734430791 >That's what I'm afraid of. Just do what i did and have a conversation first, the crazy usually shows up pretty fast if it's there, besides, you can always make it a one time thing, i dind't because it turned out she lives near me.
>>734431721 That's the point dude, if they are honest they will remain so, only way to know is chatting. >>734431811 Sounds lovely, doesn't it? It's the closest translation of Pica, which is very common in my country, "cock" translates to something like "ruster" which is not common here, the closes to that is when kids do reffer to their penises as "pinto", which means "chick" (as in baby chicken), as you may guess, adults don't use "chick" very often as it kind of gives size-wise impressions.
Dick doesn't have a precise translation, so it interchanges with cock here and is often translated as all of them (prick, cock, dong etc), but that just doesn't seem right imho.
>>734432624 >I need a mask or helmet. Dude, don't take this the wrong way bt, how ugly can you be? I'm starting to think "Phantom of the Opera" levels of ugly... which by the way is a pretty easy costume which includes a mask, chicks love musicals too...
>>734433186 Kilo Ren than... which is overlly used too but not bad of a costume... By the way, have you considered that a popular costume that is well done and looks good might get more attention than shitty ones? I'm just saying, a hundred Spider-man go every year, but just a few actually look good.
