The Sephiroth-obsessed dude who stole my wing XD
Ok this is just a really random thread where you can post the funniest/weirdest thing that happened when you cosplayed. I'll start off with mine's although it was a bit upsetting for me. XD

So I did a cosplay as Sephiroth from Final Fantasy once and I took a train to the expo and note that I also had his wing attached to my back. Next thing I know, some dude just tries to rip it off, successfully too (half of it) and runs off with it screaming 'I GOT SEPHIROTH'S WING!!!!!' and he ran over to his friends who were cheering and all I could say was '.... What... the.. hell?' Anyway, I'd gotten a set of wings so I had a spare but it still pissed me off. XD I was pretty relunctant about chasing after them too since 1. They were freakin' fast and 2. They were all pretty old guys and I'm just like, some teenage girl (I think I was only 14-15 at that time) so in my eyes, they could've been some anime-crazy perverts. I was too lazy to head back home and get my wing so I just went to the expo as the half-winged angel, Sephiroth. *dun-dun-dun!* XD and there you have it, the weirdest thing that happened when I cosplayed. >__<

What about you guys?

... Seriously, what the hell is it with people stealing things? It's pretty damn obvious that they're going to get caught if the prop's attached to the cosplayer or holding it so that's just plain rude and disrespectful
... But I admit they are kinda funny when you read back at them...

... I rarely have any props to be stolen, unless they -really- want to snap my copper tubing wings, so yeah xD

I need to stop using ellipses...

I had someone run off with my charmander this expo, I was really freaked because I adored that plushie-later found out it was a friend playing a joke on me and he gave it back,but honestly,it nearly made me cry ><

on the other side of this though,I met a little boy this May expo who really really wanted the charmander, he even asked where I bought it (I think he thought it was from a stall) but he didn't touch it or anything while I had it, possibly the most well mannered kid I met at expo. his dad appeared and took a photo of me with him and I let him hold the charmander for the picture, and he gave it back without any greivances and said thankyou ^^ He really made my day and gave me hope for the future cosplayers of mcm expo XD

Hehe, the story I have is a good one.

In costume as Terry Bogard (to which everyone thought I was Ash Ketchum O.o) on the DLR, I happen to get a nosebleed as some catgirls enter the train. The two events are merely a coincidence, but it felt like I really was one of those anime characters...

But things getting stolen sound like a big nuisance. Especially if they're props you've spent loads of time and money over!

The only funny thing that's happened to me is when I was Loz. I had a girl run over to me yelling "FINALLY A LOZ COSPLAYER! HIGH FIVE!"

It made my expo.... And still makes my day.

Rather sad of me to find it so... YAYNESS!... still, but it's been one of the only times someone has actually expressed joyness to my cosplay at expo... particulary so loudly lol...

Though this May, I had a girl (who was a team Rocket member on the Sat) express joyness to my Lady Cloud costume ;p

Though more interestingly I got recognised as Reno by a bunch of chavs in my home town. Long story short, I was going to Waterstones ReCon, and had nothing better to do til it started.

My friends also got recognized by (I believe) the same group of chavs at a later year when they were Sora and Riku. One offered to be King Mickey for them as well.


-Stealing things is out of order. Completely. And ruining costumes. And lol to the nose-bleed! Coincidence or what?!

On the way to last Expo, I was standing on the Jubilee Line platform at Waterloo in my Claus F. Lester. Also on the platform was a member of station staff. A colleague of hers asked this over her radio:

"Can you ask him what the hell is going on? I've seen nothing but people in fancy dress today."

This made me laugh and she came over to ask. I explained about Expo to her and I think she passed it on over the radio.

The wierdest thing that has happend to me has to be when i was in a lolita dress at May expo 2009, some guy came up to and gave me a hug (we had free hug signs) and i was holding a t-shirt the same as he was wearing...

He then said 'O-M-G (he actually said the letter XD) i have this shirt.. put it on then we can be shirt buddies!!!'

I said no because it was too much effort to put a shirt over a lolita dress and he followed me for like half an hour begging me to do so.... just a LITTLE creepy......... o.O

Well i've had a couple of weird/funny things happen to me at one con in general "Otakon 2008" which is in Maryland, USA, just for people who haven't heared of this con. Well...i was cosplaying "Duo Maxwell" and i went down to Artist Ally to have a look around and, when i reached the bottom of the stairs i had to run back up again because 15 fangirls ran at me! Which scared the HELL out of me! XD I had to hide from them for two hours. A couple of hours before i was with my friend who was cosplaying "Relena Peacecraft" at the time. When this girl came upto us both glomped me then started shouting at my friend because she was cosplaying someone she didn't like. She started screaming and shouting at my friend then tryed to hit and punch my friend! I had to step between them to brake it up! The worse part is it didn't only happen the once it happend 5 times in one day! Scared me half to death....i thought my friend was going to get seriously hurt. >.<

Wow. Never going to an American con. This behaviour is just wrong.

So I read your replies and whoa, some were weird and funny and some were just wrong. Fans can go crazy sometimes. O__O Anyway, I just remembered another moment and I'll post it..

It wasn't long ago, i was at the May MCM Expo and dressed in a goth Lolita dress and I had a free hugs sign that I put up from time to time if I got bored. Yeah, then there was this L sitting with a bunch of other cosplayers from across where I was standing (pretty far from me) and my sign was up. The L guy then noticed and shouted some random gibberish, ran over to me like the speed of light, and glomped me (I almost fell over too). I was surprised and speechless and that was one long hug. =___= Yeah so when I finally came back to senses, I tried to shake him off but then I got tackled by the cosplayers who were with him and so yeah, fell down by that time. They got up after a few seconds and the L guy touched my cheek in a rather disturbing way so I kinda jerked up and ran off. My friend was there as Minnie Mouse and she was looking pretty stunned but then we both ran off into the hall. So yeah, disturbing and rather weird moment for me. XD

ah,speaking of unwanted huggers,another one from the recent mcm expo XD a guy screamed 'team rocket!' at the top of his voice and tackle glomped me- this in itself was not odd, I had several people do the same. The odd part was,my boyfriend was right next to me in exactly the same costume (I'd made matching ones,the only difference being his had trousers and mine had a skirt lol) and the hugger didn't even acknowledge his presence, despite apparantly glomping me because I was cosplaying a team rocket grunt.

Another 'wtf' was some guy who wanted us to do the whole team rocket song (even though we weren't jessie and james) we were tired and the con had finished sunday, so we declined- he kept hounding us till he gave up,then said 'if you won't sing it, will you punt this teddybear?' I was like O_O but my boyfriend obliged and kicked it XD

And I had to run away from a random guy that wanted to hug me when I was getting ready for the masquerade O_o

I was followed along by two pikachu cosplayers, who were my friend's little sisters so I was surprised when you said that you got stalked by one but then you said 'he' so yeah, made me sigh in relief. XD and the pikachu you were talking about, I think I know who you meant. I saw him there the whole day. Was he with a mudkip?

You cosplayed as team rocket? Did you do a caramelldansen dance at the expo with other cosplayers? If so then I think I was standing next to you. XD

It appears Americans have not fully grasped the concept of reality verses fantasy/fiction.
