This was my first fairly big convention in costume (the other was a very small local con, one day, and not too many cosplayers). So I was pretty nervous about how people would react given my size. So I was shocked when I was asked for a lot of photos with people and a few kids coming up to tug on my cape to get my attention, wanting their picture taken with me.
There was some negativity though but it was all online and comments being derogatory about my size. One hurt because it was from someone I actually know who seemed to only say it not knowing it was me. But that negativity was completely outshone by the incredibly positive time. I’m already looking at the next con to go to and I hope to have a new cowl for it too.
