What almost prevents me from cosplaying is that I won't be able to carry around a backpack. If I did, my cosplay would look unusual. I've been attending conventions, mostly Kawaii Kon, for years now and a backpack is needed to carry around important items like food, drinks, collectibles I bought from the dealer's room, also items to have autographed by guests (which I might say is top priority to me, I ain't going home without an autograph and/or at least a picture with them). One day, I was at /r/cosplay on Reddit where I asked how I can survive with or without a backpack and some users brought up one idea that works for me: wear a backpack that is character appropriate. Make it another part of the cosplay. Years ago my brother sent me a military camouflage backpack as a gift. Knowing The Punisher, before he was a criminal killer he was a soldier. I think the military camouflage backpack works but not while wearing the jacket. Jacket and the backpack together does not look good.
