avenger-dave asked: Is hitting on women in cosplay strictly prohibited or do you think as long as your respectful and they don't have a boyfriend draped all over them it'cool?
I don’t think that hitting on cosplayers is strictly prohibited, as long as you’re extremely mindful of how you approach women in general, regardless if you’re at a convention or if they have a boyfriend/partner, etc. While cosplay can be a great icebreaker to meet people, it can also make the cosplayer a quick target for creepers for the very same reason, which in turn can make many cosplayers wary of people who are overtly hitting on them. I don’t necessarily have any tips on how to hit on people (aside from ~don’t be creepy~), but I think you should go into any social situation with the mindset of simply meeting people (rather than hitting on them) while being aware of positive and negative social cues/etiquette and body language, which a lot of people completely forget/disregard when it comes to approaching someone in costume.
Just chill, be respectful, and don’t be gross. Always.
Also, here’s a helpful video with some tips on how to avoid being branded a convention creeper :) Hope that helps~!
In ten days, I will be ten years older than I was when I started cosplaying.
I just realized that that was the first and only time I’ve ever cosplayed a character that was the same age as me.
