I had to have emergency surgery this weekend to remove my appendix, so not only did I miss HeroesCon but I'm also on forced bed rest for the next little while. That means I had lots of time to write up some tips for cosplayers to prepare for a convention.

Tips on how to safely navigate a convention as a cosplayer - Part 1

Part 2 will be posted later this week, so check back soon!

I hope you feel better soon! I've heard appendix removal can be rough, so be sure to get enough rest. :) Part one was awesome and very informative! Thank you for taking the time to write it! You really should consider writing a book about it!

Questions: what did you use to make your Halo costume? And what did you wear? And how'd you make the gun?

...I didn't think it was possible to love your cosplays more, but this...?! This added to your amazing outfits is just tear-worthy. Seriously, you may think some of this stuff would be common sense, but I am not commonly sensible. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! :D

Glad you got it fixed in time, and good to know you're already doing stuff. I could joke about how having an internal organ removed takes it out of you... oh, wait. :D

Ouch. I hope everything goes ok. I had my Gall-bladder removed a few months back, not too big a deal with that since they did it all internally. Did they do the Laparoscopic surgery?

I went through that surgery myself when I was in the Army...I got stapled shut afterwards, literally. I am glad you are using the recovery time wisely, but above all else I pray you recover quickly.

I had my appendix removed 5 years ago. Lots of fun... I even got an ambulance ride out of the deal too! :)
Be prepared for a few days in bed because it will hurt like hell to move.
Take care!

I'm sure it must be torture for someone so on-the-go to be forced into bed rest! But seriously, do get plenty of rest, and DON'T let them take out any sutures/staples before the incision is really knit together. I made that mistake, and had an incision pop open! It was super gross, and now I have a really wide scar down the center of my belly instead of a nice, clean line.

Definitely love the tips! Stuff like this is so important and really doesn't get posted enough where new cosplayers can access it. With the amount of reach you have in the community it's great that you're sharing this advice :)
