Heard from someone that cosplaying at Eastercon is inadvisable. I've never been, so is this accurate?

@clark First I've heard of it.

I mean, while I've not seen a full-out masquerade/fancy dress event, the halls seemed to have a nice degree of costumes for those that wanted...

@clark Of course, to be sure to be sure, an email to the current committee will give you information on the next convention.

I know there's a traditional divide between "book fandom" and "media fandom" but both groups can contain admiration for the skills demonstrated in a good costume.

Anyone getting sniffy at you on the day? Too bad they don't know how to recognize fun when they see it.
