I have gone out in cosplay before a few times, some recently o.o
I've got the train dressed as Princess Zelda before, and people actually recognised the outfit!
The most recent time was dresses as Freya from chobits while walking to the student union for a cosplay cafe. Fortunately around uni, people are used to seeing wierd and wonderful outfits!

I wouldnt go out in cosplay for the heck of it really. Travelling to events and photoshoots is fine but I dont really like being stared at XD

I'm actually okay with going out in cosplay, though it does depend on what one I'm wearing. I'm a little bit more self concious when wearing my Psychic Paine one, especially if I'm wearing the visor with it cos I get more stares. Even though I did get one woman ask me who had two children what I was dong while in Morrisons, which was quite nice. Others like my Rinoa, Cissnei or Lolita I'm fine with for some reason. I had some recognize me in my Rinoa last year I think which was fantastic, not sure if she remembers me or not.

But, my confidence with different costume has really improved over this last year especially when I'm walking around town.

I've gone out in an Organization coat when it was very very cold, snowy and late at night when I had to run to the cash machine. But only because I had no winter coat and it was either that or freeze.
I'd be too nervous to go out with full cosplay on! D:

Like most people, I've travelled to and from events in cosplay. Which did mean catching a bus and going on a a train (ie, a long journey) in my cosplay once. But people were surprisingly okay about it, even though I did get stared at. People were aware that my friend and I were heading to the NEC so they just asked us what event we were going too.

Also (like most people) at a Con if I've wanted to get food I've gone out in cosplay.... and all we got was one group of chavs shouting at us, which we found more amusing than anything else. Mostly, people just asked us what was going on (since we were in HP cospaly, we were the most recognisable and people probabaly seemed more comfortable asking us ).

I have been around London is cosplay, which wasn't too bad since I was in a casual variant of my costume... It was just WHAT we were doing that made me very self concious XD We were having to draw a lot of attention to ourselves, I was convinced someone was gonna yell abuse at us. Although, aside from the occasinal "WTF?!" glance, we were spared from that 8D

I’ve gone out on meets or for food in cosplay but never alone always in a group. It’s turned in to some typical ritual on the Friday night of Expos going out to the centre of London in cosplay, compared to the first few times in full costume, we’ve calmed it down to more or less just wigs & casualness.
Few years ago a group of us cosplayed in full Bleach captain robes, that was the oddest time ever with the “WTF” stares, waiting outside a shop in china town for a few of the others and being recognised by a group of business men who got excited & took our pic along with just after that stopping to pet a police dog at the Piccadilly tube station casually while two officers were frisking some guy opposite us while the other two where rather “wtf are you guys??.....” then generally questioning what cosplay was. xD

I've been out in cosplay almost every time I've done it to be honest, though it's mainly been going to and from events. I really don't mind as long as I'm with someone else. XD

I've had the usual, 'It's not Halloween yet!' and random swearing at me, but hey, when you think about the people who are saying it, *cough*chavs*cough* is their opinion really gonna matter to you?
Only other time was at the Hetalia meet last May. We didn't get that much attention whilst at Hyde Park, possibley due to the protestors who were dressed even more weirdly than us! XD

I But I don't think it's put us off, me and some friends are going to see a women that works in the local noodle bar in Sora, Riku and Kairi cosplay.


After sunday's Hyper Japan, me and mom were starving because we didn't eat at the event (all vegetarian food had sold out!) so when we got back into our town, we stopped off into Miso (japanese resturant) when I was still in my full Roxas crossplay- with keyblade!

The staff loved it, knowing what it was instantly and they kept chuckling to themselves that roxas was eating in their resturant!! It was a right laugh, and mom dared me to do it, so i HAD to!

A bunch of guys kept giggling to themselves over my hairstyle and taking the piss, but when we got up to leave and held my keyblade over my shoulder roas stylee, they quickly looked down at their meals and went dead silent... they chickened out on making comments!!

During Hyper Japan on Sat, me, my friend and my non cosplaying friend left the brewery to find a cash point. People kept asking if we wanted curries etc.
My non cosplay friend got called a Pimp.


^ This is what we were wearing and how much leg we showed when we walked.

Done it about three or four times, and I honestly have no idea what was going on in my head when I agreed to do it.

I've been on the London Underground dressed as Sephiroth, and luckily there were other cosplayers wandering around so I didnt stand out too much.

From now on when I travel to a con using public transport, I always change when I arrive, or wear something over the top of my costume.

Its not my thing, but I dont see anything wrong with doing it! Its not for people who dont like getting much attention though. If you have the balls to do it I salute you : )

And here is said video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dc2fkhflSP0 Yeah...good times.

I actually don't mind being out in cosplay at all as long as i'm with others who are doing it too. XD I just view the whole thing as rather silly and laugh it up. Only bad thing that ever happened was some pervy guy trying to chat me up and kiss me but my friends soon told him wear to go.

I've only ever walked short distances to events in cosplay. Got started on by chavs when I was dressed as Momo Hinamori from Bleach, the stupid muppets thought I was a nun.

On a really cool note, I've seen a girl who goes to the same uni as me who dresses in the most beautiful victorian style dresses. Saw her again yesterday, she was wearing the most awesome top hat I've ever seen! It was very Black Butler-esque!!

I love going out in cosplay like shopping, or even to work. Have turned up at work as Soubi (Loveless) before. Work colleagues think its amusing and want to know what hair colour I'll have next.

People (mostly chavs) can say what they want. I don't listen.

I always travel to cosplay events in full outfit. there was a train strike on the day of the Bleach event at Travelling Man (leeds) last year, so I had to go in full Ulquiorra outfit on the bus

Ah well, makes life interesting XD

We had a cosplay meet in nottingham last weekend all of us in cosplay, ranging from Kuroshitsuji to Bleach! We got the odd under the breath comment and of course from the usual suspects xD but we did have some one say Cheese really happily when we took a group photo. But all in all no comments to our face and it was pretty fun!


09 Oct 2010 - 09:4242600
My friend and I always travel to and from cons in our costumes - the fun starts for us the moment we put them on and become our most beloved characters! We start getting excited for whichever expo we're heading for and only get more so when we start seeing more costumers on the tube. It's a great way to meet people on the journey, it's usually fairly obvious to anyone even not in costume that you're going to the same place. With most of my costume I couldn't imagine trying to change when I get there, the hassle just isn't worth it. The only time I ever changed back was on the way home from May MCM, I was getting cold so threw some trousers over my Harley Quinn costume and changed into shoes I could actually walk in

Another small story for you - For LFCC we were staying along with my ex boyfriend in a small hostel in Southall London, and I can't tell you the amount of moaning I got from my ex about my Domino costume! He kept saying we were all going to get attacked, or stabbed, or started on, in the 3minute walk up the hill from the hostel to the train station. He thought we'd get so much trouble on the tube as well, but the first time someone pointed at him and said "Doctor Who!" he changed his tune completely.

It's a shame some people do still think it's a good idea to put down, or start trouble with people who dress differently. I've got to the point where it just doesn't phase me any more much unless they get physical. Wearing a cowboy hat 99% of the time (damn I love that hat) I'm fairly used to odd looks, it's only a small step to be in costume besides, when I go out to the local club I usually go in various costumes anyway (most of which are on here somewhere), which ends up in taking the bus home through a busy town centre at 2am. Surprisingly, most people just don't bother taking any notice any more

We hold cosplay meet-ups in the Botanic Gardens in Belfast quite often. It really is fun.

When getting the underground to Expo, I was in my costume.
I heard a parent say to his little girl "Oh who's that?" (the girl had been staring)
The girl replied "It's Dawn!"
Made my day c:
Though not as much as when a little kid asked me if I was a real princess in Starbucks while dressed as Zelda :'
