Let's talk about pantyhose… With a Leggy Cosplay Overload!!!!

Leggy Cosplay Overload!!!!

I will often times get a message or a comment stating that a cosplay would be “sexier” without dance tights or pantyhose. I want to explain something here. NO! First, always dance tights. Pantyhose have weird gussets and lines. If not on the sides of the hips, at least in the crotch. It’s not attractive. And although they are cheaper than tights (about $3 compared to $15) they will likely snag within minutes and are easily ruined.  So lets go over a few guidelines and reasons why this is a necessary part of every cosplay.

  1. Clean lines. Dance tights streamline a cosplay. They tighten up a figure and smooth out any lumps and bumps that a lady might feel insecure about. They also cover up spider veins, light bruises, and dimples. Legs also get cold. What happens when they get cold? Chicken skin. And that’s not so attractive. It doesn’t photograph well and it’s not comfortable.
  2. Children are present. Cons are family events. Cosplayers are under enough scrutiny without some girls snatchitals flapping in the wind. Forgive my bluntness but it’s true. Sure the average pervert thinks this is fantastic but the average parent wants your head on a stick. I have seen this happen many times. And guess what bitch! This sort of disrespectful behavior is what gets cosplays put under stringent guidelines.
  3. It’s a safety issue. Unfortunately, there are people out there that will attempt to violate a female cosplayer. These tights practically go up to your neck. No one is slipping a finger in there.

So feel free to rock that Cammy, Elektra, Velma, Supergirl, and any other cosplay you love. Just play it safe, family friendly, and clean with some dance tights.

And for you guys out there, if your rockin some lycra or spandex, wear a dance belt.

Unfortunately I only had the opportunity to spend a few days there. However I have some important questions regarding this show. Help me out if you have the answers.

1) Why does God hate Free Hugs?

2) When will Sharknado 2 be out?

3) With over 100,000 people in attendance why such a shortage of cosplay?

4) $300 a day to park at the nearby mall? WTF? Reall?

5) Where can I get Chipotle Sofitas beside gaslamp?

6) What do you think of my new Pony cosplay that debuted?Imageat 

and finally 7) How can I get exhibitor space for next year?

If you can answer any of these questions I’d greatly appreciate it. I had such a good time and it’s always nice to see my con family. My fans are wonderful and I appreciate every one of you. Thanks again.
