This is my second time ever preparing a complex costume. This year, since my friend and I decided to do Otakuthon together, we coordinated and prepared Punk Schoolgirl costumes. Doc Martens, denim vests and torn shear stockings to go with a pretty traditional schoolgirl uniform. Cute, quick, and fun.
Cross-dressing is usually seen as weird, but at cons like this, you can be a different person and ignore ridiculous social norms. It’s one of the reasons I love Otakuthon (and cross-playing) so much.
