Tips for bad weather?
So Midlands Comic con is just around the corner and the weather is not looking good! Winds of 20mph and lots of rain!!!

Any tips for getting to the con without destroying your wig? Haha -____-

Comic con's cosplay area has a bag drop and changing area

Funnily enough i was only just recently discusisng this problem with a friend. The Cardiff Comic Con is a few weeks away and damn the weather doesnt look like its going to play nice >_<

My tip for hiding from the weather is usually to either wear a loose coat over the top to minimise damage until you get inside (works best if your parked near by and can get someone to return the coat once inside or there are cloakrooms)

Utilise Capes and Cloaks, Hood over head, or over props etc. I use this alot if i need to transport props in public

and if you have a long wig try a very loose low ponytail to stop the wind messing up your wig.

I'll only put on the things I know wont get damaged and always put on my wig while there - there's no point in having it if it looks like crud, right?
Normally I'll go to the toilets because there's a mirror, even though they have a cosplay area for changing, so if its something relatively simple I'd go to either of those two spots.

Prep your hair if you need to before you put the wig on too if your hair is long. So for example mine is at the length that I can sit on it, so I'll braid it in advance so I can just whip my wig cap on and then the wig. If you've got nice shoes for the costume, avoid putting those on until safely in the building - some I customised a few years back got trashed just from walking from the train to the expo.
