Convention season is coming up soon, and everyone is getting all their cosplays together (even if it’s a few days before the con, but you can do it, believe in yourself!). Everyone is preparing for what all they have to take: clothes, toiletries, cosplay items, oh god how am I going to fit this eight foot prop in my six foot car, very important things like that! BUT what should be on one of the top list of things is that at least one of you should be carrying is a bag. It doesn’t need to be big, though I carry a lot of crap in my bag, so I need a huge one. And in this bag should be: snacks (like a big fruit snack bag!), water bottle, wallet with money and ID, comfy shoes, etc. etc., but a great thing to have in this bag would be an emergency kit. All of my friends turn to me when they have a mishap, asking if I can do a quick fix on something: a prop broke, a seam ripped, a headache, etc. So, if you would like to make sure when something bad happens, because face it, it’s a convention and you’re having a good time so of course something bad is going to happen, that you’ll be prepared, take an emergency kit with you!!
There are many, many people out there telling you things you could bring for your repair/emergency kit, and they all are very helpful. So, I’m going to share what all is usually in mine! These are in no particular order. Feel free to give me any ideas or suggestions, and I’ll try to add it to the list!
If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me at any time, and I’ll try to help ASAP!!!
