2010 - My friend and I being mistaken for "booth babes" while trying on corsets at Timeless Trends, and a mom begging us to pose for a photo with her baby.
2014, I dressed up as Maeve the Winter Lady since Jim Butcher would be there. I was walking toward the entrance to the convention center and walked by a couple dressed as Harry and Molly. I leaned down toward the girl dressed as Molly, put on my best smirk, and said, "You have my old job." She just stared at me in complete silence, and I thought I'd invaded her personal space bubble and she didn't appreciate some random stranger looming over her and whispering in her ear. Or worse, I'd dropped a major spoiler! Later they approached me again and she was bubbling over with enthusiasm, and telling me she loved my costume. I guess I'd just startled her.
