I was worried I was going to get that too, but amazingly I didn't (as far as I know!) I think I might have mistaken a Prussia Hetalian for a German one. And I annoyed someone in a blue and white habit by mistaking them for Guilty Gear's Bridget :oops:

Quite a few people thought my costume was from Trinity Blood. It's actually from the XBox game NinetyNine Nights but she's a non-playable character so even people who know the game don't always recognise her! >< It's always a problem when doing lesser known costumes, but it makes it even better when people do recognise it and are happy to see it!

I absolutely loved seeing your Caterpie! <3 I was so annoyed I didn't have my camera with me so I probably just looked like an idiot grinning at you. ><

Same happened to me XD I was a different character, but seriously no one knew who I was!
There must have been SOMEONE there who recognised our characters but just didn't say anything >_>

Got asked if I was Allen from D Gray Man when I was Pluto from Kuroshitsuji. Understandable.

I asked a random guy who was talking to my brother for a bit if he knew who I was. He thought I was Alyx Vance...I was Jade from Beyond Good and Evil. I mean sure, they both wear bandanas, but they look nothing alike o.0

I set out to count how many (epic win) people actually knew who I was. Result? 10.
