Cosplayers Give Tips On How To Avoid Being A Convention Creeper [VIDEO]

This Exists... Because of A Lady

As a cosplayer myself, I’ve experienced convention harassment. We’ve discussed this many times on the site before as well, be it from the perspective of the Black Cat cosplayer or comedian Black Nerd. As with many things in life, awareness is key, and a lot of times awkward situations can be chalked up to ignorance. Here now are a few cosplayers with some tips on how to be respectful to cosplayers you meet at conventions. A lot more could be added to their shortlist but it’s definitely a good place to start etiquette-wise. They say their next video will be titled “How to Identify an Actual Creeper and What to Do if You Do Meet One.”
