Recently overheard at a Comic Convention: "Oh that's very interesting.... you're from what TV series again?.... oh shit check it out it's Sub Zero from Mortal Kombat! Sorry I've got a get a photo of this, bye."
Seriously though this kind of thing ticks so many boxes it's hard to know where to start. You can easily slip in between cosplay convention and S&M club with no need to change outfits. Also if a sword fight breaks out you're covered too. Well barely covered in this costume.
Note: Chain mail looks so much better on women.
