What was your biggest emergency while in cosplay?I once dropped my buster sword in the street and a bus ran it over. One of my ex-friends spent $2300 on a Genji Overwatch cosplay and immediately poo'd in it. Same friend was at the Dragon Con where those girls were nearly killed.
Wore a full closed-off suit cosplay, the zipper broke off at the top while waiting in line for the bathroom.
Wasn't mine, but we were painting a friend with latex as the Demifiend from SMT3 and he kicked over the bucket of liquid latex and it got all over the bathroom and some friends' belongings. Took forever to clean up.
>>10628670>the Dragon Con where those girls were nearly killedNani the fuck?
>>10628709Some guys threw chairs from the 10th story.
Friend had a costume that had a white dress with a fairly short train. Almost immediately after entering the convention center, someone spilled coffee all over it and also managed to leave gross footprints all over the train
I was wearing a cosplay with short skin tight skirt and had white strings on to not have visible lines showing. About an hour in the convention place i went to the toilet and realized my period had started. My hotel was a few km away and i had no tampons with me, it was horrible but surprisingly nothing too bad happened.
>>10628670>>10628670Thankfully these didn't happen on the same day, but I had spent weeks working on a hair prop for my costume. I spent the entire night before the con finishing it. My friend literally walked in to wake me up the minute I finished. We decide to check out vendor's hall first in the morning and I didn't even take more than 5 steps before some asshole checked my shoulder and knocked it to the ground, breaking it irrevocably for the rest of the day. The prop wasn't obtrusive in anyway, it was even smaller than the width of my body. He didn't even pause to say sorry, so I can only hope everything he wanted that weekend was sold out.Another time, my bestfriend was just starting to get into cosplay and sewing. I had offered to help her a few times, but had a costume of my own to finish (another pulled all-nighter), so I couldn't help her at the end. On the day of the con, her stitches came undone and her dress was literally falling of her. We cobbled together some safety pins, bobby pins, and hair ties to keep it on under a sweater, but eventually she gave up and bought a cute outfit from the con instead. It ended up working out better than the costume which was a saving grace, but it sure learned me a good one to test wear my costumes before the con.
>>10628860>white stringsAre you talking about a thong?
>>10628833I would be seeing red after that. Unforgivable.
I’ve fortunately not had much bad happen to me outside of the usual con costume disintegration.The most worrying moment was definitely the time my Inferno Cop “cosplay” kept trying to fly away in the wind whenever I went outside.
>>10628860Thank Misako my daddy makes me wear a diaper to cons.
>>10628938woah you can totally see her pussy through the dorito bags if you zoom in! based creepo photographer
>>10628670>One of my ex-friends spent $2300 on a Genji Overwatch cosplay and immediately poo'd in itIs that why he's an ex friend?
>>10628887I'm trying to imagine what she did for "sewing" if it was so bad that it came undone so far that the garment was falling off. Was it hand-sewn with no knotting? The worst sewing job I've done was like rough cuts, raw edges hidden under the waistband, and a fit like a burlap sack.
Friend dressed as deadpool split the butt of his suit. Coincidentally, I was King Candy so there I was wearing poofy shorts over leggings.seeing Deadpool in those poofy shorts was hilarious though.
Not an emergency, but a really annoying case; was taking photos with another cosplayer in the halls, he had a hefty boffer sword (that were totally unrelated to the character he was cosplaying, I guess it was a stand in), I had two eva foam swords. We do a pic of us locking swords in battle. He swings his boffer strongly, right into my foam swords, breaking the wooden cores with an audible "snap", then looks at me with a goofy grin like it was supposed to be cool or cute or something. It was supposed to be a fucking pose, not a mock fight FFS. I was pretty tight but I guess autists are to be found in the hobby. Learned to idiot proof my props not just for myself, but for others too.
>>10629050Yeah, it was hand-sewing because she wasn't confident with her machine yet (which looking back on it would've been the safer option, but like I said I had shit to do so I didn't oversee her process much -- oops). She had altered a premade dress that was too big for her. It wasn't like coming undone by the seams, but it was suddenly slipping and sliding to the point where her tiddies were making their debut every two seconds. And as you can imagine that's pretty embarrassing when you're standing in a crowd of people. There was a fair share of rough cuts and raw edges too, so all in all a bad time. A good learning moment though lol!
>>10629565Homie I know how it feels to have your big tiddies slip out of clothing. There needs to be more tutorials to stop this sort of thing. Perhaps there should be a charity to raise awareness about titty slipping?
A few years ago I was cosplaying Baroness von bon bon and my dress was so heavy that the clear straps broke. Me and my friends were on our way out so it wasn’t a huge deal but I had to constantly puff my chest out so the dress didn’t accidentally slip down.
Tons of intricate beading on the bodice and straps of my corset top and midway through a panel I just hear “plink plink plink” and look down in horror to see the beads from my strap rolling around on the floor. My friends had to help me re-stitch them a few hours before the competition. Somehow still managed to win best craftsmanship. Learned my lesson that day and now all of my beading is sewn on with beading thread instead of cotton.
Sometime during the con and i didn't notice until after the con. One of the tiny "belt buckles" on the vest had sharp corners which accidentally made a small cut on the skin around my armpit and left pecI can still see the scar today
>>10629724What cosplay is this?
>>10629724Yooo its Luna GoodguyHow many belts did you need to buy?
>>10628670I still have a bad knee from getting hit by a car on Halloween. I was dressed as Kermit frog.
>>10634262Damn, it really isn't easy being green...
>>10628670>One of my ex-friends spent $2300 on a Genji Overwatch cosplay and immediately poo'd in it.what..?

Cosplayed a casual Gilgamesh complete with wine glass with fake resin wine. Got bumped in crowded in artist alley, dropped the glass which shattered. I felt pretty bad and tried to pick up the larger pieces while alerting con staff and sliced my hands a bit. Next time I'll use plastic.
>>10634973resin is a plastic.
>>10635012I think that anon was trying to say the wine itself was resin and it was in a real glass.
>>10634262Not a cosplay thing but a friend of mine got hit by a pickup truck when he was in highschool and just never told anybody. Now he has a bad hip that flares up occasionally
>>10628670Kind of an emergency. My bf had to lend his little sister our room key during a con because her own room was full and she had nowhere to jack off.
>>10638413Once at con my friend got so horny that his heart gave out. All the blood in his body went to his dick. A group of Homestucks had to jerk him off to save his life.
>>10638479why didn't you jerk him off yourself?you're not a very good friend
>>10628670Saw a D-Va with a split in her suit and had to get a female friend to tell her that her thonged crack was showing.
>>10638639I'll bet I know exactly how it ripped, too. NSFW.https://youtu.be/XcKS1R0o-20
Valet at the con hotel snatched my (now ex-) GF's fragile prop sword out of our car before we could stop him, and then tried to jokingly swing it at his coworker and the grip section snapped right off. Once we were settled in the room I immediately got the car back, drove to the nearest Home Depot, bought a drill bit and some epoxy, and came back and fixed the sword by twisting the bit by hand into each side of the break (easy because it was a balsa wood prop) and then epoxied the sword back together with the drill bit inside as a reinforcement pin. It ended up being a really successful con with that costume, she got tons of pictures taken and ended up becoming quite popular because of it (and all of the subsequent alternate costumes she did for the same character) but few will ever know how close it came to disaster.
>>10639029Good boyfriend, sorry it didn't work out with her bud.
>>10639023t. virgin scrotegirls jack off idiot why do you think sex shops are half just different vibrators and dildos?
>>10639033>Jack offYou do realize that terminology refers to a man jacking off his dick right? I'm not saying girls don't masturbate you complete fucking autist.
>>10639041maybe if youre a toxic retard who takes everything literally and by that i mean literally up the ass like the cock of the troon that fucks you you stupid fucking lame
>>10628670>One of my ex-friends spent $2300 on a Genji Overwatch cosplay and immediately poo'd in it.DO NOT TAKING THE POINT SIR ARE YOU MAD
>>10639029>Valet at the con hotel snatched my (now ex-) GF's fragile prop sword out of our carWho gave the right?
>>10639023That's what she calls it.
>>10639050Did you have a stroke while writing that? Do you require medical attention?
>>10628670When I was like 16 I thought it might impress my crush to play fight with his little brother, who was dressed as Naruto. Then that little shit kicked me full-force in the privates, because he thought it didn't hurt girls.My legs went dead and I laid gasping for air right in the hotel parking lot. My crush was really apologetic and, looking back, I should have asked him to kiss it better.
>>10639654lmao, missed opportunity.
>>10628670I was also at the D Con where the girls were nearly killed. My friend got her weave snatched there.
>>10639654bruh you got beat up by a little kid lol
>>10640048I mean it sounds like anon's a woman and young boys can easily be just as big or bigger than a small woman.
>>10640048Little kids can kick!!! He straight BOOTED my coochie like he was trying to launch me into outer space.
>>10628670>buying a pre made costumeYour friend is going to hell
>>10628670That time I saw your face and had to barf
>>10628670Ended up getting my period 2 days early at one con, when I was to wear my 2B costume. None of us used tampons and I only had pads packed, had to beg my friend to go get me a diva cup so I could still wear the costume.Also was at a zelda meetup and had been backed up all weekend. Stomach cramps entire time. Meet up ends and I run to the bathroom and proceed to unleash hell for 15 minutes. Walk out of stall and half the ppl from the meet up are in there. Hella embarrassed.
>>10628670At what point do we get a vendor by the entrance that just has a bunch of stuff for emergency costume repairs?
>>10639023Girls say jack off just like they also say "bro" or "bruh", it doesn't mean they're a tranny
>>10639654Don't try and fight the protagonist by yourself, rookie villain mistake
>>10642239last con I went to had a whole cosplay repair station. They had various kinds of glue and glue guns, needles, thread, a sewing machine, etc. The elastic broke off my cosplay slipper so I got to sit down and just sew it back on, it was really nice.
>>10628670A guy in the Smash tourney pood himself rather than take a bathroom break.
I decided to wear brand new boots to Otakon back when it was in Baltimore. I did miles of walking that weekend and my heels were bleeding nonstop. I didn't bring any different shoes and I still have scars from the blisters.I also got calluses in my mouth and my lips were bleeding from holding my wooden prop sword in my mouth for photos (I was cosplaying Zoro)
>>10639654Are you me? I was trying to impress MY crush, getting some action shots where I was perched on a banister. Went great until I slipped and landed right on my box. One lip was bigger than the other for days.He brought me a water bottle though. Should have also asked him to kiss it lol.
>>10643355Please tell me which tournament it was. I've got to read about this.
