Get Ready For Everything Fun At The Cosplay Meet And Greet 5

Cosplay meet and greet is an increasingly popular event in anime and pop culture conventions. For characters who are not normally social or are more introverted, meeting fellow costumers is a rare opportunity for them to get out of their shells, participate in some great fan service, and make their own friends.

Like any other event, there are etiquette rules that must be followed for this to be a pleasant experience for everyone involved. By knowing these basic guidelines, you’ll be set up for success at your next cosplay meet and greet.

Cosplay Meet and Greet Etiquette

When attending a cosplay meet and greet, it is important to remember that you are representing not only yourself but also the cosplayer you are dressed as. As such, there are some basic etiquette rules that should be followed.

First and foremost, always be respectful of others. This means no rude comments or hurtful words, regardless of whether you agree with someone’s cosplay or not.

Secondly, try to be understanding if someone is having a bad day or isn’t feeling up to posing for photos. Lastly, respect the cosplayer’s wishes and do not attempt to take photos or videos without permission.

It is also wise to keep in mind that you are there as a representation of your character and not yourself. This means avoiding controversial topics and swearing. Also, avoid asking for hugs and kisses from those who may be uncomfortable with such contact from strangers.

Also, keep in mind that the cosplayer you are meeting may be representing characters who are romantically involved, so it is important to respect their personal space. If you are unsure of where this line is drawn, don’t be afraid to ask for direction.

Providing that these rules are followed by everyone, attending a cosplay meet and greet can be a wonderful experience for both the cosplayer and their fans.

Although cosplay meetups can be a lot of fun, they can also be nerve-wracking if you’re not sure what to do. Here are a few tips on how to prepare for and enjoy your next cosplay meetup:

Dress comfortably.

This is probably the most important rule. You don’t want to be uncomfortable all day long because you’re wearing a tight corset or a heavy coat. Wear something that you feel good in and that will allow you to move around easily.

Bring a friend.

Meeting new people can be intimidating, so it’s always nice to have someone there with you. Plus, it’s always more fun when you have a friend to cosplay with.

Don’t forget your camera or phone.

You never know when you might see another cosplayer who strikes your fancy, and it’s always nice to have a camera on hand in case that happens! Plus, there are likely to be photographers at the meetup, so you’ll want to have some pictures of yourself to share online.

Stay hydrated.

Cosplay meetups can take place outdoors, which can be tiring if you aren’t used to being in the sun all day long. Make sure you drink lots of water before, during, and after your event.

Respect everyone’s costumes.

You might be tempted to touch another cosplayer’s costume, but keep in mind that they may have put a lot of time and effort into their outfit. Don’t grab it or try to pull anything off without asking first.

Say hello.

Cosplayers can be shy, too, so your smiling face might be the thing that gives another cosplayer the confidence to participate. Don’t be afraid to go and say hello!

Talk with photographers about taking pictures.

Some photographers like to do more candid-style pictures of cosplayers, while others prefer to take posed photos. Either way is fine, but make sure you know which style the person you’re talking to is taking before they take your picture.

Keep an eye out for photographers who need subjects.

Lots of photographers like to work together. If one photographer doesn’t have any cosplayers in their pictures and sees that another photographer has plenty of subjects, they may ask if the other photographer minds them photographing you. This is a great way to have your picture taken by lots of different photographers and get some unique shots in return.

Say goodbye when it’s time for the meetup to come to an end.

If you had fun at the event, don’t be afraid to show it! A simple goodbye can go a long way toward making the other cosplayers feel good about themselves and the event.

Upload your pictures when you get home.

You’ll probably want to share them with others on social media, so take some time when you get back from the meetup to upload your pictures and write about how much fun you had.
