I just registered for a Doctor Who con coming up in March 2015. My main cosplay, for reference, is The Brigadier.
As I pondered details, I found myself opening my MS Outlook calendar and scheduling the date I need to start growing the mustache in order for it to be proper Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart fullness by the start date of the con.
Yes.... I made an appointment with myself for cosplay facial hair growth.
So... what lengths do you go to for cosplay? Post below with this format: "You know you're a dedicated cosplayer when..." Photos welcome!
