I'm going to start making this Sakura pajama hopefully soon

I'll also make a pair of Sakura's signature bunny slippers and buy a Kero plushie

My doubt is, would it be a good costume for a con? Normally pajama cosplays are made for private photoshoots at bed or inside home, despite I'd like to do it I've never seen any pajama cosplay at a con, so would it be a good idea?

Yeah, I see people do it at night- kinda like a "casual" cosplay.

As long as the clothing conforms to the rules of the con, you're good. Go for it. I'd love to see how the bunny slippers turn out.

Well, I won't take it to the contest so I guess that's an advantage :razz:

Those pajamas practically look like a school uniform so it's not like you'd have to worry about looking totally out of place. And they're not very revealing so I wouldn't consider them "cosdoir"-only. Also some cons have panels that are just kigu/pajama parties? So I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see more PJ cosplays as casual cosplays, at least with OW since Mei has a canon pajama outfit now, too, and I think some other characters do, too.

Pajama cosplays are becoming pretty common at cons, I think, as long as they fit the con rules. I've known some cosplayers who have even set up hotel room shoots to look like a cosplay pajama party. I can't wait to see what you do with this one!

I generally see people doing PJ costumes late at night at cons, when they're tired of being in their more elaborate outfits (because those can get physically exhausting!).

I actually did Sakura's Pj's at a con and it went down really well (the ones from when she captures the Fly card). I even encountered someone cosplaying Slenderman in the wooded area which surrounded the con so that made for some interesting pictures

My local con is making the cosplay dating game pajama party themed this year. Go for it.
