Sometimes cosplayers get no luck, and apparently if you ride public transportation in Emu Plains to CBD morning express then you might just scare a pile of proles and have to talk to the police. At least it sounds likes the police might have had a sense of humor, but personally I would have recognized Deadpool and given him a high five instead.
Deadpool is one of the very few mainstream comic book characters I tend to follow.
The story is being reported by the Herald Sun that the cosplayer was on his way to a children’s hospital in the full Deadpool get up, and that made some folks on the train a little bit nervous. From the report:
Another five officers, including a sergeant and a constable wearing bulletproof vests, surrounded the man who appeared to have two automatic pistols strapped to his legs; a bandolier of bullets across his chest, grenades hanging from his belt and two samurai swords sticking out of his black bag.
So let’s be careful out there, sometimes your cosplay might just make the average human being a little bit weirded out as they commute on the way to work. There really is no point in asking people to chill out a little bit, but then there it is.
