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.

Ugh. I feel you on the being able to find stuff. When I was making my Sarah cosplay, I wanted to buy a pair of plain modest white heels. I had to go to no less than FOUR different stores to find a pair white heels that weren't 1) ankle-breakingly high; 2) covered in stupid decorations or 3) making my wallet cry. I finally found a pair at a local overstock store for $20.

The whole time, I was going: WTF? It's SPRING! White heels are in season!

And this Christmas, I bought another pair of plain white heels at Payless while looking for something else. Just because they were there and I knew I wouldn't find them again when I wore out my current ones. *sulk*

I just can't get myself to work on Allen because I have to do a ton of buttonholes, and just the thought of it frightens me. DX

I second this. I had something break on me at AWA and I wasn't able to fix it until after the con when I returned home. I need to remember to start bringing super glue with me to cons in case something like that happens again.

Joke's on you. Broken ankles are always in season.

Seriously, though, it's always so hard to find basic stuff. I was recently looking for some black shin-height boots with a low heel, and everything everywhere was coated in zippers and studs and accent pieces. In the end I just went with the ankle breakers.

Cosplay pet peeve of the day: Not being able to buy the supplies from vendors others recommend because I live in a different country.

Seriously it seems freaking impossible to get the right kind of EVA foam here...

People selling wigs and other supplies with mark-ups from the original cost.

Seriously, has anyone else noticed that the Marketplace forum has at least 2-3 people trying to sell second-hand/used Arda wigs for more than what the website prices them as? :/

When I cut my hair just to find out a month later I could've used it for a formal meetup, but now without it my options with the wigs I own are to do a crack-pairing with my date or prepare to brolita it up. Probably going to do the latter, actually.

This has probably been stated many times before.. but please, PLEASE take out your facial piercings before wearing a cosplay if it does not specifically call for them. It's really unsightly to see a super meek/innocent/quiet character have snakebites in..

Well you wouldn't like me then, I always leave my earrings and lip ring in; it's too much struggle to bring pliers to open a seamless ring everyday and too easy to lose earring backs. I've yet to get any complaints though.

I've got very few peeves in general, especially with how someone chooses to wear their costumes. It's all about fun for me.

Sometimes people leave them on because they just got them done and if they take them out the holes will close
