Also, I hate those big inflatable lawn ornaments. Can you say TACKY?
Outside we have 2 lighted bows, a set of 4 candles, and 4 little light up trees. All clear lights (well, the candles are those flicker bulbs, but still).

I HATE inflatable lawn things. They are so tacky.


Spaz - I think we have "warm" white as well. I like those better than "cool white". I also hate that I know there is a difference.

My grandparents tree has always had coloured lights, while my parents' tree has always had gold and silver decorations with white lights.

When I was little I thought the former looked better. When I was older I thought the later looked better.

Now I don't really care either way.

I don't mind blue lights in moderation. These are the lights I put up in our apartment windows this year, and I think they look great. (the LEDs are better for the power bill too)

Right. I cannot stand people who decorate the outside of their houses with flashing lights that ALL FLASH AT DIFFERENT RATES AND TIMES! It annoys the hell out of me and makes my eyes hurt. In fact, even ones that dont flash still look tacky. Keep em inside where I dont have to see them ¨.¨

Also, the whole 'female versions of male characters / male versions of female characters' of characters. why? Just crossplay if u wanna dress up as that character or dont cospay them, simple! (That applies to u aswell Ciel ballgown )

I think doing male/female versions of female/male characters is interesting if they're in a historical setting, so you have to change the putfit and props while considering the actual fashion of the time; this way, I see it as a "designer" challenge, and can turn ot pretty well with nice little details. But otherwise, I agree.

I hate when someone does a cosplay that doesn't fit his/her body type and defends it with "omg you're attacking me only because I'm fat/thin/tall/short/whatever".
NO. I'm a bit overweight myself and I've learnt that if I want to look good there are some kind of clothing that fit me, other not, and that there are some tricks I can use. Learn to cosplay according to your body type and that sometimes making an alteration so that the cosplay is more flattering looks way better than 100% accuracy. If you don't and someone tells you that the cosplay isn't flattering for your body type, even if it's well made... well, learn to deal with it. If I wear a empire waist dress I look awful, even if it's from a top designer, so I don't wear them even if I like them.

You know, I'm with you --- but I spend similar amounts of money on game figurines and special editions.

And you also spend such cash on obsolete things
