So I’ve hear constant con horror stories, and I was really afraid to go to one. I finally went with my younger sister, and we were having a good time. My sister like Black Butler so she cosplayed Ciel and I did Alois. We are both short so it worked pretty well, and we were getting nice compliments UNTIL a creeper shows up.
He was probably 24, and I am 17. I ignored him as he followed us and led my sister to a busier part of the con, out in the open. I was talking to another Black Butler cosplayer, when the same guy comes up and starts talking to my sister (she is 13). I pulled her around to the other side of me so she wouldn’t be sitting so close to him, and he gets up and MOVES so he can sit next to her. I made the mistake of pulling my sister onto my lap to keep her away from him, too which he said “ooh a little boy x boy action?”
I almost gagged. Yes, I like yaoi, but she is my sister and she is 13. I am still underaged as well. My sister turns bright red and starts to get teary eyed and nervous. The other cosplayer pushes him away, and sit next to me so he can’t. He leaves and I continue having a conversation with my sister, and the cosplayer, to calm things down.
We soon leave and go to the dealer room. We see him there and try to avoid him, but he see’s us and tries to follow us again. I put my sister in front of me, and he is basically grinding on me. I turned around and glared at him and said “we are under aged and I told you to stop already.” he responded “thats okay I like shotas.”
I grabbed my sister and ran out of the area, and reported him to the staff. I still don’t know if they caught him or not, but cosplayers PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS. If anyone, and I mean ANYONE touches you or makes comments at you after you’ve told them you aren’t interested, please report them right away. My sister is now 15, she’s all well and safe, and so am I. Don’t let this discourage you from cons, though! And remember, buddy system!
