It's a way of life for all cosplayers and we know the pain.

NYCC? SDCC? Otakon? Dallas Comic Con? MCM? Local? Overseas? No matter what you pick, your wallet will cry.

2. Agonizing for hours in the queue for ~popular~ cons, only to find they have no tickets left.

3. Realizing you maybe have too many cosplays.
