Okay, this is mostly directed to Toronto and Ontario!stuck groups. I know there has been debate about it last year, whether to cosplay or not, even just casual.
We can safely say that this is our sign. Wearing shirts is fine, because from what I understand they will be sold at TCAF as well. But limit it to just that. Our groups are massive now, likely 400+ combined. We have to behave. There are a lot of pretty awesome people there, and we really don’t want to act like a bunch of rowdy animals. I know we are all excited to meet Hussie, Jit, and others, but really guys. Use your brain, don’t be dumb. Be respectful, and mindful of others.
As an Admin of Ontario!stuck I want to make sure that we all try our best to represent the good side of our fandom. Thank you for your time!
Also, any one in the groups, please reblog this to get the word around!
I don’t see a problem with cosplaying one of the kids/guardians, or a human version of one of the other characters. Shirts are obviously fine, and I don’t see wigs and contacts being that big of a deal as long as you look like a human being. As long as someone who doesn’t read the comics and doesn’t know the characters would not be able to tell you’re in a costume, basically.
Other than that yeah, we should respect the wishes of TCAF and not cosplay.
I’ll probably be a human!Vriska - and by that I mean the shirt from my god tier costume paired with jeans and regular boots. That’s an outfit I would wear to the corner store (and I’ve worn it to class many times) so I think it’s appropriate.
So my adminly two cents is this: If you’re unsure whether you can wear it or not, think whether a non-homestuck would know you’re dressed up as a character from something. If they would then wear something else. If they wouldn’t you’re good to go.
