Thanks everyone. I'm just not gonna let him borrow anything until his attitude changes majorly.

aaaaaand said friend just sent me a message asking if he can borrow my really long blue wig -_- I told him no because it tangles if you look at it funny and is a bitch to comb, which isn't a lie.

Alright, new (and semi ridiculous) peeve:

How short I feel when I take off my Prince Ludwig boots. Being 5 foot 8.5 is nice dangit! T_T

Less ridiculous:
Waiting for stuff DX I ordered my wig for Lui on Friday and it said it'd be here in 3-5 days since it's coming from California. It's already day 3 and I haven't even gotten word that it's shipped! DX I really was hoping to have it by Friday so my friend could trim the bangs and do my makeup and I could finally get some new and improved pictures as Ludwig but it doesn't look like that'll happen now.

The fact that my city has no major arts and crafts/hobby/fabric stores. It's a college town with a decent population of artsy-type people and it's super irritating not being able to find simple things like craft foam or acrylic paint (other than the professional quality the university sells).

Liking too many characters in a series, and not being able to decide who to cosplay.

Particularly Sailor Moon! I can't pick out a Scout, I love Sailor Mars, Sailor Moon, and Sailor Neptune- they all have their positives and negatives and I can't pick!!!

My friend's attempts at "cheering me up"

I tend to look at a lot of cosplay pictures on worldcosplay and DA and stuff like that. Sometimes, while seeing all of the extremely pretty and amazing ones or showing off pictures of people who won various costume contests, I mention how I could never make anything like that. She attempts to cheer me up by saying I'm a beginner and I'm getting there and blah blah blah, stuff like that.

And then I move on to look at another cosplay, usually the very crazy ones like the complicated CLAMP designs or whatever and she says stuff along the lines of, "Yeah. You could never make something like that."

Really? Really? It always makes me so mad whenever she does that. I know I could never make something like that with my skill level. Don't rub it in. -_-

Having a drink of juice I bought with me to a con, a girl who was hanging with me hits it with her elbow, it soaks my face and cosplay and she just laughs and continues what she was doing.

Luckily for me it was just flavoured water but it still really annoyed me. She didn't know what it was and still laughed.

Also people grabbing my damn curl in my hair. It has a 'lovely' crimp in it now and I can't fix it despite trying, and now the bottom of the hair is starting to get lose, too.
I said I was going to retire the outfit but so many people have begged me not to so I'm going to try and fix the few problems with it.

Not finding things for cosplay because it's out-of-season. I want some gladiator sandals for Mama Greece but that's hard to find in December. I'm going to Maui soon so I'll see if I find some in a warm climate.

How about when it's the right season and you still can't find the item you want?

I swear, I can't find a decent and cheap enough pure white bomber jacket for Kyo Kusanagi for the life. I may have to go with eBay on this one.

That I am motivated for cosplay or for work, but never simultaneously.

Not being able to find something that should be really basic! I had to hunt for a solid pink crew neck t-shirt for weeks. I thought it would be so simple, but none of the stores I went to had one until Old Navy.

It took me weeks to find a plastic martini glass for my Rose cosplay.

Lol, this is kind of a shameless product endorsement, but I work at Old Navy- if you need a plain t-shirt, we have basically every colour you could ever need, and some stripes, and long and short sleeve and v and crew necks. I've probably spent about twenty hours this month folding and tidying our giant tables of them.

Things breaking on you at cons suck! I had my sandal strap completely break on me at a recent con. Too much running around in them :/ Luckily I expected them to break eventually, and had another pair in the car

I hope this won't make me too frowned upon, but I've recently discovered that it bugs the heck out of me when a cosplay doesn't fit a person properly. Whether they're drowning in it because it's too big, or they look incredibly awkward because it seems one or two sizes too small, cosplays that don't fit just look bad.
