Ettiquette and consent
When you're captivated by the creativity of a cosplayer at an event, remember to ask for a photo politely. Cosplayers usually welcome photos, yet their comfort and consent are paramount. If they're busy, simply wait or politely move on.Respect their space, especially if they're eating, resting, or in a hurry. There's always a better moment.Keep corridors and booth fronts clear; find a spacious area for that perfect shot.Patience is key if they're already posing for someone else. Wait your turn, and you're more likely to capture their full attention and a stunning photo.Remember, cosplay is not consent. Never touch a cosplayer or their outfit without explicit permission. These creations may be delicate, and personal boundaries should always be respected.Cosplayers bring characters to life, but they're not the characters themselves. Praise their craftsmanship and dedication, not their physical resemblance to fictional characters. Avoid negative comments about the character or the cosplayer's appearance. Enthusiasm for a character is great, but keep interactions comfortable and respectful for everyone.Be mindful of the cosplayer's time and the presence of others waiting to engage. Cosplayers are there to enjoy the event too. Let them continue their day without prolonged interruptions.Cosplay is an inclusive art form where anyone can embody any character, regardless of body type, race, disability, or any other characteristic. Celebrate their courage and creativity rather than comparing or critiquing. Respect and admiration for their effort and interpretation enrich the community, making the event enjoyable for all.
