I make the distinction since if you're dressed in costume, you likely won't have anything to hold your food, because wearing something other than what your character would own goes against the Cosplay Code.People unfamiliar with cosplay will think I'm kidding, but regular con attendees know if you wear a book-bag with your cosplay you will be ex-communicated.However, at the time I steadfastly refused to accept that I couldn't see everything and caused myself unnecessary problems with the lack of sleep, and over-use of energy stimulants.The level of fatigue I'd been experiencing was made clear when someone I knew asked me why I hadn't noticed her friend's breasts.

And, they also don't want to linger around people who make them look bad through association. if you're in one when it comes time to relieve yourself, you may find it difficult if your costume is too complex to remove without help.NYCC combines many forms of geekery, and trying to see every panel you want, photograph every costume you like, and in my case, documenting as much of the con as possible proved a daunting albeit rewarding task.After day one it becomes easier to accept that there will be too many things you will want to see happening simultaneously at different areas of the convention.As I'm not a cosplayer, I had no costume concerns, however walking into a men's bathroom as a girl in green paint and cat ears stares at you upon entering can be somewhat alarming when you 1.) wonder if you're in the right bathroom, and 2.) wonder if the women will watch you at the urinal.
