Judge John Hodgman Episode 388: Cos-plagiarism

| 0 comments

Samantha brings the case against her sister Vanessa. They regularly do cosplay and attend steampunk conventions together. Several cons ago, Vanessa came up with the idea to use one of Samantha's dresses for a steampunk version of the Stephen King character Carrie. But, she never made the costume. For this year's Steampunk Halloween convention, Samantha wants to use the dress and go as Steampunk Carrie. Vanessa says that since it's her idea, she should be able to do it.

Donald, his wife Jessie, and their son plan to attend a Star Wars fan convention that will comprise their family vacation this year. Donald and their son have been planning and executing costumes to wear for the event. Jessie says she shouldn't have to wear a costume, since she's not a big fan herself and she agreed to let the convention double as their family vacation in the first place. Will Jessie have more fun in costume? Or should she be allowed to opt out?
