First anime convention. Help!?

I am pretty short and have a very vulgar/ colorful vocabulary, so I'm cosplaying as Karkat Vantas from Homestuck and this is my first anime convention. Is there anything I should know about? Dangers/warnings about stalkers or glomping? Please help!

    Basically, just exercise good etiquette! Seal your makeup so it doesn't rub off on others' cosplays or merchandise, ask permission before hugging people or taking photos, be respectful of fellow congoers, and obey any directions convention staff give you. Be careful with being too in-character; shouting or excessive language can get you in trouble at some cons. Although I don't foresee this being a problem, if anyone gives you any kind of trouble, talk to a staff member about it and they'll put a stop to it.

    Best of luck with your cosplay, and have a good time at the con!
