Newbie arrival + Adventures in Cosplaying

Hello, everyone! I got into Yu-Gi-Oh! Within the past week, thanks to LittleKuriboh's wonderful Abridged Series. I'm still picking my way through this fandom, but it seems fun from what I've seen so far.

So, I'm a moron and only looked for anime conventions in my home state. For some reason, I didn't think that there'd be any large ones in the nearby states, either. But then I found Naka Kon, and it's only an hour away from my house, to boot!

I decided that I will cosplay as Ishizu Ishtar if I can find the time to go; I have an old Cleopatra costume and some leftover materials that could easily be converted into her outfit. The only problem I'll run into is acquiring the Millennium Necklace. What do you suggest? Should I try to make it by hand, or buy a version suitable for cosplay?

To start some (hopefully) interesting discussion, what were your weirdest/funniest/most memorable moments while cosplaying as Yu-Gi-Oh! characters?
