to be honest, I'm petrified of meeting HP cosplayers if I'm in Sirius. Everyone else tends to do movie-accurate costumes. I don't really care to be out of place. I think. And I don't know why it bothers me to have verification. Or even need one. It's not that. It's just. The aura is different from Japanese cosplay. I couldn't even ask the cosplayer at the cinema for a picture, and I wasn't even in any character. Maybe it's the crowd that HP attracts. I can flick people off if I'm in jap cos, not that I ever need to. But it's a bit harder to be in character when you know the people around know your character very well. Fraid of screwing up? Why should I be. Good lord what the hell. Getting myself worked up over non-existing pressure.
Balls, Padfoot. Grow them.
And semi off topic, even if I fucking hate it when people ask for pictures when it's a private shoot and not an event, it's always the thought that I'd reflect badly upon whatever community that cripples me. Not that Kai or Saga ever helped. hahah.
