Con Suite > Cosplay


(1/2) > >>

For the first time this year, I think I might dress up.  Not sure what I will come up with, but worried about getting too hot.  What is everyone else dressing up as and what do you do about the heat?

Transmute Jun:
There are costumes that are heavier, and costumes that are lighter. Many costumes have less clothing, such as ones that are sleeveless, or incorporate shorts. If you have a costume that covers more of the body, you can try to use lighter fabrics, such as linen or super thin cotton.. One costume that my husband likes is a pilot from Battlestar Galactica, because they wear a double tank top, which leaves arms bare. I have a Daenerys costume from Game of Thrones that is light and sleeveless. But my TWD Carol costume is heavy and has a jacket and knee boots, which makes it too warm for recent SDCCs.

My husband and I debuted Orville costumes last year, which are unfortunately warm, because of the jackets. But we got breathable 'hiking-style' black t-shirts to  wear underneath that wicked away a lot of body heat, and that helped a lot. As an extreme, you can always wear some kind of cooling packs underneath your costume.

one thing i have noticed is that i tend to stay cooler if i am not rushed. there have been years when i don't give myself enough time to get in my costume and make it to an event so i end up rushing and by the time i get there i am sweating. other times when i plan ahead i am then able to take my time plus i am not rushed when people are asking for pictures. i find that when i give myself enough time i tend to not get overheated. I hope this helps.

When I was walking from over 10 minutes away, I would take my cosplay there and change into it in the convention centre, since it is cool inside, and only cosplay indoors. If I get one of the really close hotels then I would probably just walk it over.

I just posted something similar over in the other cosplay thread. Oops.  Maybe this warrants a merge?
