Seriously, how many of you hubbers out there ever dressed up in costumes when you were kiddies..or even still do now for whatever reasons? i know i certainly haven't, but what do you folks say? have you guys ever dressed up as kids? Or still do? if you still do, then please share with us why then?
I loved Halloween as a kid, and I still do. Plus, I am (or used to be) involved in community theater--there's dressing up involved in that. On some weekends, I dress as a British soldier and pretend to oppress American rebels. (It seems less weird if there's a couple hundred of you doing it at the same time, and you call it a reenactment.)
And a couple days ago, I volunteered to read to a 1st grade class at my kid's school...in costume and in character as Vem Wessel, Jedi Knight. The kids were in awe. It felt kinda like what being a rock star must feel like, except with smaller people. And without the roadies. Or the drugs.
I've dressed up on a couple occasions, cosplaying at a convention can be fun, especially if your costume is easily recognizeable and done well. The amount of people that stop you and ask for photo ops can make you feel a bit like a celebrity, haha.
