I went back and added pictures to mine, as suggested.
I've had some bad stuff with other costumes before too, but really nothing to outrageous, (such as the leather pants I had on for my Lady Punisher outfit nearly shredding the leather outside because it poured down rain and I got stuck outside in it while carting the other costumes inside and the pants had to dry while on me and it started ripping the outside.) Once I made the alterations to Meg and re-did the outside vinyl that made her 'metal' exterior, and it took down a lot of the weight and problems, and I got used to the boots, and remembered not to walk for 12 or 15 hours the day before, I wound up actually LOVING the suit itself and modified the cannon so it sprayed not just one shot of confetti from it, but was now a six shooter, and had it worked so I could reload it while still in character and in suit, storing the extra sixshooter rounds in the inside tube of the cannon itself. Kids got a kick out of it, and so did a lot of my cosplayer friends too. I was able to last over 6 hours in Meg in one suit up at one time at Baltimore ComicCon after that. My feet hurt, but not near as bad.
I've been ganged up on by kids before....lol...I had one literally climb me in Meg at BotCon on the last day because I was 'the bad guy' and he was 'gonna git Megatron!'. LOL! I laughed it off after letting him 'fight' me for a minute and then chased him and 'shot him' with my confetti and he ran off giggling like a maniac. It was hilarious! Then I had this one little boy who was just the coolest. He run up to me and says 'Megatron? You're the bad guy but I don't care, you're still my favorite.' I think I almost cried under my mask as I got down to my knees and he run into my arms. So, there may be costume fouls or bad experiences, but the good ones like that totally make up for it.
