Packing for conventions is always a hassle, right? I always write a checklist of essential things to pack in my suitcase, but even then I'm always nervous that I'll forget something important at home. It's kind of a big deal especially when you travel long distances to go to a con. When you're cosplaying, forgetting just one accessory can put a damper on your weekend!
The following list should cover all the bases of your cosplay needs at a convention. Go ahead and print this file! I suggest that you then use the blank space to write down all the specific parts of your costume so that you don't forget anything cosplay-related when packing your suitcase.
Here's a small shout out to Fé who once forgot the blouse of her Madam Red costume when debuting it at Anime North in 2009 and had to "fake it" with a white scarf bought at the last minute!
