Ooooh, gotcha. Well, still...the sun is bad, lol.
And the skirt doesn't actually look terribly short in that picture (not compared to certain other cosplays I have heard of lately, lol), but of course if security is in any way compromised, it's wise to take precautions. Sounds like you've got a pretty forward-thinking plan there. But do keep someone with you to be your "picking-things-up-for-you" person, just in case, haha
Back on topic (sorry for the diversion), I am pretty much finished with my costume. I still have to get the vest made, but even without it, I am realizing that my costume will not do well in conjunction with my (self-diagnosed) hyperhidrosis. I'm doing what I can to try to stay cool and not overheat, but if the weather wanted to cooperate with some clouds and breeziness, it'd be much appreciated, lol.
