So I have a personal rule of mine where I refuse to wear the same cosplay to the same convention more than once. It's perfectly fine to wear that cosplay to a different convention though. I also don't like wearing the same cosplay more than 1 day at a con. This year I broke both of these rules xD I wore the same cosplay Friday and Saturday due to 1) only being in the cosplay for first half of the day Friday and the 2nd half Saturday and 2) I simply didn't have time to make another cosplay (since I made one for a friend this year). I wore the same cosplay as last year Friday night only because is was a dress made of duct tape that was the only cosplay I had that qualified for the Crystal Ball. I'm debating bringing back some of my older cosplays that I haven't worn in years since no one is likely to remember them. It also annoys me a little when I go to photoshoots and see the same people in the same costume year after year. (And no, this isn't a big irritant and it's not something I'd ever be rude enough to point out to someone, I just wish I got to see some more diversity and originality lol)
So wondering if there's anyone else out there who feels this way or similar xD And please don't shoot me for saying it slightly annoys me when people wear the same cosplay year after year. It's just a personal quirk of mine and it's not meant as an attack on anyone in here. I completely understand that not everyone has the time/money/skills to make a new cosplay every year.
