This is a continuation of the series I began earlier detailing the rules you need to follow if you wish to successfully dress up for a movie premier. Rule #1 is use the buddy system - bring a friend, even if they're not dressed up.
Rule #2 is to remember - it takes guts. Dressing up for a movie premier is not for the faint of heart. In our society a man can go to an outdoor football game in January with nothing but a pair of shorts, flip flops, and full body paint and nobody bats an eye BUT if you show up to Green Lantern dressed in a full-body Green Lantern costume you're bound to get a few odd looks from some folks.
Remember, not everyone at the midnight showing is an ultra-fan like you. I've had people make rude comments right in front of me (Can you believe he brought a Captain America shield?) as if I can't hear them. You've just got to have thick skin. Remember, for the most part your fellow fans think that you're costume is cool. Man up, ignore the hate, and just do it! But don't say I didn't warn you.
