So excited for comic-con!!!

I have my cosplay ready! Yay
The only issue is that if I stand and walk for a while I need cane.
That's not good cos-play because a cane is not part of the character.
Maybe I should just take extra meds?
I'm not sure what to do

Soooo what's your character? Is there a way to disguise your cane? Staff, sword, vines? Steam punk it out .... I would take your cane ... It shouldn't distract from your outfit, better to have your cane ... Cons always seem pretty crowded and busy from what I've seen.

๐Ÿ˜Ÿ Haven't gone yet due to all the crowds and noise but this year I'll take my son ... ๐Ÿ˜Œ

I'm going as rias gremory, she's from an anime, unfortunately I can't disguise it. But you are right i should take it.
I don't think it's as crazy as comic-con there, comic-con has only been going a couple of years here in Australia.
Thats so cool you're going to take your son :-)

Yes I can see how it doesn't go or can be disguised .. if something pops into my head I let you know ...

MKnight, best to have your cane. The worst thing you could do is up your meds in a crowded place and then if you get a bit off, you can fall all the easier. I have a cane that's purple leopard skin print ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜œ. I do need it from time to time but pain in my shoulders, wrists and hands makes it hard to lean. (So most of the time I just waddle.. LMAO!!!) Have a great time!!! Take lots of pics and share your absolutely awesome adventure with all of us. {{Hugs}}๐Ÿ’•

@darkblade Best pic ever!

I dress as whatever I want at our comicon even though I need a wheelchair for such long events. Just take care of you and then if people want pics you just put it to the side, easy peasy! Have fun!
