But hey, what's the worst that could happen?

I don't know about you, but I don't make decisions based on the "worst that could happen." I make decisions based on "what's most within the realm of possibility." The worst that could happen is I die or am permanently injured. The problem is that's the "worst that could happen" for literally everything I do.

If you cannot show that a decision significantly increases your chances of a negative consequence, you cannot call it bad judgement. A cosplayer, particularly one who doesn't go hang out in an alley by herself or run off with some strange guy, is safer at Comic Con than you are driving to work. There simply isn't any data to show that cosplayers are at a significantly higher risk of assault than the general populous.

Dressing slutty = Possibly distasteful depending on the context and your morality, but not poor judgement.

Running off by yourself during a major event = VERY poor judgement.

The fact that you chose to skirt that particular point with empty rhetoric doesn't do you any favors either.

Moral of the post doesn't seem to be "hey, guys, don't beat 17 year old girls and leave them bloody in the street," but "hey, 17 year old girls, don't have fun skimpily dressed with your friends at a place full of skimpily dressed people because some guy may beat you."
