GODTIER GAMZEE ISSUES:
Alright, so I went to ohayocon this past weekend and had a heck of a great time until I went in my godtier gamzee cosplay on Saturday. I thought people would be understanding towards the codpiece because it was a part of the cosplay. Turns out I was dead wrong. This is a warning for those of you who plan on doing a godtier gamzee cosplay, no matter how nice you are, people will more than likely give you shit.
I was also stopped by the staff along with another godtier gamzee (http://katnerd20.tumblr.com) and we had to go speak to security because the codpieces seemed to be violations to the dress code and they made people uncomfortable (mostly parents which I can understand their concerns). The security was very nice as they joked with us over the fact that our pieces squeaked and we used them as pockets.
A lot of crap happened on Saturday and I should have expected people to be as cruel as some were about my costume. There were people half nude and no one seemed to have said a word to them and it made my stomach sick with envious guilt over their freedom of clothing rights.
I really did think that people would be ok with and maybe even like my costume. Some people did and I definitely appreciate them because they made my day so much better. I do still feel terrible for all the people that learned to fear me by first impressions since I acted like a cretin along with wearing my costume.
