I am going to my 4th year at a local anime convention next May, this time as a volunteer. As we are only allowed to wear con staff shirts, I don't have much opportunity to cosplay like i have previous years. However, I am considering cosplaying one of our three mascots underneath the shirt.

As we are only allowed to wear con staff shirts, I don't have much opportunity to cosplay like i have previous years. However, I am considering cosplaying one of our three mascots underneath the shirt. I've never seen anyone do this, so i don't have anyone to ask about the situation. In my case, I'm worried about one of two things, 1) people not realising I'm a volunteer and dismissing me as a passionate con-goer, or 2) having to take pictures with people (which has happened frequently in other costumes), making it hard for me to do my job.

I don't know if this is a good idea. Help!!
