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...
@OldBrushNewPaper Huh, okay. Thanks!
@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.
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
