When your next convention is soooo close to the first day of school. The convention in my case is Anime Festival Orlando-- school starts the Monday right after it! I have to attend it knowing school's right at my heels...

I have two pet peeves of cosplay:
1. When people make fun of other cosplays instead of having fun.
2. When wigs mess up very bad and you have to untangle/comb it, but you just make it worse!

My own internal pet peeve: starting on a cosplay because I have a fear of cutting the fabric wrong ahahaa. that and the lack of tutorials and patterns for certain cosplays. Right now I'm gonna draft some patterns though. Should give me some motivation to get started.

Oh my god this is me. I HATE cutting fabric. It scares me so much I will screw it up. So I take even longer to work on it than a normal person would. I hate screwing up and having to buy more of the material.

I now despise feathers. Spent two hours handsewing them onto a hem for trim.... and there's down everywhere, they were hard to get on right, the fluff kept wrapping around my needle/thread and snagging it, and the slightest breeze in my room sent my stack of carefully-picked feathers flying. RGH.

Adding onto my previous rants about the commissioners for hire thread; it's also annoying seeing ads done by people who have had an account for a very short amount of time, have a very small amount of posts, and they don't show any photos of their previous work. You expect me to buy from you? It's pretty sketch.

It's the most scary thing in the world for me. Right up there with cutting into a wig without time to order a new one if you mess up.

i tried to make a kigurumi once and i swear i cut out all those pieces properly until i finished sewing the monster. it was too tight in the crotch and armpit area /sighs. even with the seam allowance i had no room to stretch. i might add a strip of fabric one day and while it may look weird, it's just PJs.

omg, cutting wigs is a nightmare. i guess this could lead to another peeve i have when you cut up a wig just enough to only work for one particular character. my chrome dokuro wig would be great for a noodle cosplay but i'd have to add wefts to it.

When I am 3 days short of finishing my costume on time for the convention. Also, when fashion tape stops working and I constantly have to put on fresh tape.

When I'm sitting in the plane watching the bags getting unloaded. Then I see mine getting thrown, rolling a few times and then thrown again onto the little trailer thing. My costume is in that bag and everything else cosplay related.

When I screw up making my own cosplay.
When I find out AFTER completing a costume that my reference pic had the wrong shade.
Finishing a piece and THEN realizing I sewed the fabric in backwards.
Losing a pin, sticking it back in and sticking yourself with a different pin.
People who are not cosplaying saying they could do better.
People who are cosplaying saying they wish they weren't.
Finishing a costume and realizing it's crooked.

Finding a really good, fairly cheap prop online for a cosplay you plan to do..but it's a knife/razor and the description doesn't say what the blade is made of.
I don't want an ACTUAL knife, and it's the price of what I think a real one would be >.> So that's slightly irritating me.

Right now: cutting the fabric rectangles out ou need for a pair of pants...but suddenly your brain goes "LOL CU LATER" and you can't make a pair of pants for f###s sake. It's like you forgot EVERYTHING in an blink of an eye. Finally, you decide to buy a pattern so you can finish those damn pants..just to see...that your pants would be 4 inches too SHORT in theend. And because you already cut the fabric (which had the PERFECT color you ordered online) you have to buy NEW fabric now on a local store because you have to finish those damn pants for a championship in a few weeks .... not knowing if you'll find the RIGHT shade of the color (yes..this COUNTS in the championship. if the color is slightly off you get points taken off)...and on top of that don't even know if you can BUY the fabric because it's the end of the month, money is TIGHT and ordering online again isn't an option because they need 1-2 weeks to deliver AND charge you 20$ for delivery (WTF)

short:
-fabric which was around 40$ you can't do anything with now since you cut it out, waste of money
- need new fabric because of your stupidity
- wasting more money by buying new fabric
- near to a heartstroke because the time-pressure is now unbearable and you have to be finished in time
ARGH X______________X

This has really been bothering me lately, but I really hate going to the comments section of YouTube videos that revolve around cosplay. While there are usually nice comments there, there are those people that say stupid/rude things that just make me want to shake them. :I

But then again, that's almost in every comment section on YouTube, so...
