My only pet peeve is when cosplayers use like party city wigs xD Like, the wig is a main component of how your character is going to be recognized. If you have a good cosplay then a crappy wig, it makes the entire cosplay terrible. I also dislike the race issue with cosplay, it should be a fun hobby not some "grand master cosplay competition"

People taking too long to give you an answer about rooming with you. I know, sometimes you need to check on things but it shouldn't take over a week to hear back from you. Especially when the con is so close. I don't like sending messages asking for a final answer because they tend to come off as rude.

On this thread there pretty much is no "I'll say what I want to say and no one can say anything back" For example, if I say that my pet peeve is cosplayers who don't wear wigs, then people have the right to respond with things like: "Maybe they can't afford a wig" "Maybe their wig got lost in the mail" etc etc. Just the way things go.

Also, no one here is saying that you aren't entitled to your opinion, because you are. We're just also allowed to debate and counter it.
^THIS. I enjoyed the entire post but I've recently been very annoyed by people with this mentality so I'm focusing on that part. Seriously, if you post something online, there's a chance people are going to respond to it. If you don't want people to respond to what you write, start a personal journal. Don't throw a hissy fit because someone disagreed with you especially if it was done civilly like Tigress did here. It just makes you look like a child.

What I usually do for roommates is check in with them once a month and then again two weeks before the con. I also have it noted in my roommate guidelines that flaking out on me less than two weeks before go-time means PERMANENT blacklisting. Which means you never get to room with me again. Not even pretty please with sugar on top. *

It's a little harsh, but since enacting that rule, I've noticed a sharp drop in last minute drop-outs. And I've now developed a small core of friends who I know are going to be reliable.

@Tigress cause the site is not letting me quote two in one -

Ummmmm.... I think this thread asks what MY pet peeve is. Not if you approve of it.

MAYBE if someone stepped up and said "Put some clothes on for crying out loud, you don't have to do that for people to like you." it wouldn't be such a proliferated plague.

But just straight up using and abusing the word cosplay for money makes me sick.
Yaya han makes money off cosplay... does she make you sick? PikminLink... Alodia...Parle Productions... they all do it... maybe they don't all make huge profits but they do. Do they make you sick?

So what? So what if some girls dress skimpy and make a few bucks off it? Is it hurting you? Is it damaging your psyche? You do realize they have people in Japan who are probably payed more who do this as an actual career, IN COSPLAY so maybe you should take your slut shaming ways, and leave if you don't like that people are defending "sluts who are ruining your cosplay"

The magical stains that always seem to appear on white cosplays....

My Morgiana cosplay has been sitting in my closet for the past couple of months. I take it out and there's a random black speck on it that won't come off and I have no idea where it came from. >_<

The problem is that all the people I know are reliable are not really yaoi fans so they chose not to attend Ahn!Con as it's yaoi themed.

One of my roommates agreed to still pay her share but now she is paying for a full half as no one else is willing to room with me. I've had over 6 people drop out on me for this one con, not to mention I was insulted when I made posts searching for people. It made me so upset I considered actually not going and selling my registration to someone. I guess I'm still going but I'm still very upset. I'm unwilling to accept anyone's offers at this point because I've come to expect them to flake.

My cosplay pet peeve today is cosplay partners who don't really cosplay very much. I've had a lot of those, and it appears as if that means I'm in the market for a new one...

And just so you guys know, a lot of the Cosplay Deviants are actually very nice people. I've met some of them at conventions, and their cosplays look great in person.

Lack of reference images strikes again. >_<

I'm looking at Makoto's dress from the Eden music video(Idolm@ster Shiny Festa) and the black dress only appears in...two quick scenes that don't give me what the front looks like. >_< Might just go with Takane since I know what hers looks like.

This line of thinking is probably my [pet peeve]. I don't care for it either, but put down the torch and pitchfork already.

They are adults. It's not illegal. Does it make your moral compass point south? Then stop looking or bringing it up and move on. Holy simplicity Batman...

My current pet peeve is when costume color combinations look horrible in real life. I'm almost done with my Iori Minase (Smoky Thrill) costume from The Idolm@ster and, let me tell you, the color combination is hideous in reality. Burgundy, purple, and blue/green don't go well together outside of anime/video games.

I've been there. It's an absolute chore to recruit people for my room at Nekocon. It's a bad time of the year for most people and I absolutely refuse to room with people I don't know unless one of my current roommates can vouch for them. I have two people that always room with me (and they chip in for gas since I'll make a side trip to pick them up), but it's still a stretch.

Maybe just eat the higher cost this year and spend the con making super best friends to room with next year?

Oh man, hotel room woes. I'm right there.

I did all of the scoping for Katsucon months ago-- like in October. Priced out rooms at four or five different places, looked into transport, calculated discounts, did budget plans for the rooms depending on how many people we have with us, but alas, no room.

My friend was supposed to get us a room months ago, and I'm still waiting. I continually pester her about it too, that I'm even getting annoyed with myself about it. I don't turn 18 until after Katsu, so I can't put the room in my name, but on my birthday I will be grabbing out Otakon hotel room so we don't have this problem again.

SIGH.

If I had more than one spot open in my room, I'd offer you a space in mine for you and your friend.

Thanks, Tigress. I appreciate the thought. <3

The real issue, though, is that I did the planning for a group of 10+ people--thus, multiple rooms, for multiple nights. Since she hasn't booked it yet, I can't solidify anything else (like carpool times and who is taking what cosplay stuff/filming equipment down when), and it's making me want to pull my hair out.

Even worse, she'll be out of the country until the end of this week. Despite my constant pestering-- to the point where even I was getting annoyed with myself-- still no results. Going to have to wait until next weekend at least. *headdesk*

At least this con is only ~1 hr drive from home, though. While I'd really rather not have to leave earlier in the day and go back and forth (especially in DC traffic), I know I should still be able to swing going to con even if this does work out.

I just wish this was easier.
