Dress as a character in the public?

I'm not talking about cosplays at conventions or group sessions for them. I mean as a character, or mascot, out on the streets in the public.

The most common gag of this, for example, would probably be seeing someone with a Stormtrooper costume on just walking around in the mall or a busy street, doing Stormtrooper things. I bring this up because I have a Waldo costume in my closet and I'd love to wear it out in the town. Got the hat, glasses, and shirt. Don't think it's weird or anything, there just needs to be some interesting spice in life sometimes. I look just like Waldo if I shave. Although, I'm self-conscience about it. It's not necessarily the norm to go out dressed like that, (nothing judgmental here). There's a popular festival in my town for the weekend, and it's the PERFECT time to be Waldo and get peoples reactions.

Would you dress as a character out in the town? I'd love to, but how could I get a little more courage?

For anybody not knowing who Waldo is, this is him below...

I walked around in a pikachu outfit once. I don't care what people think ,as long as I'm having fun who's to judge :O
People are going to ask you what's the occasion , and I simply tell them "it's for fun " They smile and leave , some even want a picture and compliment me.

Do it >:D . I'm sure people will recognize ya ( well the oldies or whoever played looking for Waldo). The compliments are nice to here . If you run into someone sour just shrug it off and walk away.

Some years ago I went around dress as kisame hoshigaki (non-blue skin) even had a sword (oddly no cops stopped me or anything).
Aside from that I'd sometime wore my organization XIII outfit.
and that's about all I can think of, probably have dressed as 1 or 2 more Char. but none that come to mind.

I used to walk around in a banana costume a lot for no real reason, in fact I used to keep it in my car trunk for years... though I guess that's not really a character.

I don't have the guts to do that.


I do find inspirations from characters' fashion style, and try to improvise on it to fit in with social norms.

Like for example, Squall's fur jacket, I wore something similar, but it wasn't as short, because I was inspired by it. I think in like 2008 or 2009, that sort of jacket became the in thing lol... so a lot of people were wearing them... and I no longer feel special.


The next thing I was inspired by was the suits that the characters wear in Reborn!
It would just stand out too much if I wore suits everyday to university... so I improvised and wore black jeans and a black jacket over a tshirt...

I want to do that! But at the same time, I don't xD!! I don't like to get the feeling that people are staring at me, laughing or just thinking "What the hell is that guy doing" I just get a very awkward/bad feeling when that happens

This gives me a great idea. I should hit up a nice fancy club in DC and go as Keima Katsuragi, start up a conversation with a girl and then tell her I'm not interested in 3D girls, whip out my PFP and start playing some gal games.

I'd dress up as Koyomi from Monogatari cause I love his style of clothing.
