I used to do ballroom dance in college (and still help run Trickssi's dance events at cons sometimes), and I quickly learned not to complain too loudly about uncomfortable outfits. Oh no, I have a Cuban heel that is an inch and a half high and too tight? BOO FRICKIN' HOO, OUT COME THE STILETTOS. I feel that this prepared me well for dealing with drama llamas I MEAN cosplayers.
Rock on, guys, and never stop drawing.
