Sometimes it's better to not rub in the obvious because matters are already annoying enough without such reminders.
I've done this plenty if times
I'll fill up a pen dispenser & fill it with pills & just pop them out to people throughout the night
This was at a local convention nearly a decade ago. Somebody was selling old video games and I grabbed Lunar: The Silver Star for Sega CD for $45. And they just sort of threw in the box for Shining Force III for Sega Saturn. I was dressed as the famed tanker Zinoviy Kolobanov and had an interesting interaction with some young lass who was obsessed with 1930s-early 1940s Germany.

Getting this from the artist alley. It's one of my favorite games of all time.
Meeting people online and then running into them in the convention. I have kept a few of them as good friends.
Just being in the same place as many people who loves anime.
Hung out with this guy
Cosplaying as George R R Martin
(Game of thrones writer)
With a DeathNote
All he did was walk around & threaten to kill people
Idk that s##t just cracked me up
High-fiving someone awesome like Gambit of the X-Men and someone lame like Elmo of Sesame Street with my bare hand within the same day.
(This was back in 2016, which is 1 year before I finally became a cosplayer myself.)
Another memory from that particular con and that particular day... I got a surprise hug from a crush who was taller than me and cosplaying my top waifu, because the week of the con happened to coincide with her birthday and I was thoughtful enough to give her some small gifts. *sigh*
In the end she chose another bf who is either equally as tall as her or even taller, but a hug was still better than nothing.
I was able to smell her perfume and touch her silky hair with my bare fingers for maybe around 10 seconds.
2016 was such a good year with so many freedoms.
This anime con hotel was out of rooms so I got a hotel about 30 min away
This place had a ball room & a wedding going on
Nothing to do with the con
and cosplaying as Kira I looked like I fit in
So I just walked around & had free drinks
So I'm in random peoples wedding photos
