Last weekend, I was at NYCC. I split three days between two cosplays -- Saturday as Dr. Frank N Furter from the Rocky Horrow Picture Show, and Friday and Sunday as Gwynplaine from The Man Who Laughs (or rather, from the 2012 version).
My experience as Gwynplaine was notable. Going through NYC as a disfigured man ended up being quite an education. I wrote about it, to solidify my own ideas, to explore others, to tell someone -- anyone who may have an interest -- the effect it had upon me.
