Okay kids, so I’m planning to go Costume Con for the very first time this year. It will be, in fact, my very first con (unless you count BayCon last year, when all I did was docent an exhibit and go to the Regency dancing). And it will, of course, be my very first masquerade, at which my goal is simply to not make an a** of myself. To that end, does anyone have any advice to a newbie masquerade-er? What do I need to know? What do you wish you had known your first time?
