You can't help but admire a character's costume and think of cosplaying them.

When you take twice as long to shop at thrift stores because you have to check even the irrelevant departments just in case they have something you could use!

"What happened to your finger?"
"Guess."
"Hot glue burn?"
"Yup."
Conversation between me and my friend who also cosplays, who I met through working at Joann's.

Your idea of a cheat day is playing video games rather than working on your crafting.

...when people ask you what you are doing this evening and you say you have too much work to do (and you are a stay-at-home parent/unemployed).

You stand in front of the mirror and practice posing as your character.

Oh this reminds me of the complete opposite.
Conversation with my cosplay group partnet (I'm J, he's A)
J: *using hot glue to make a piece, and smears the hot glue with my finger*
A: *Wincing* "How the hell are you touching that? Doesn't that burn"
J: "Psst! No. I can't feel pain in my fingers anymore...."

I've been playing guitar and bass for a long time, so the pain threshold on my fingertips is WAY higher than normal. Plus I burned my fingers on hot glue so much that it no longer hurts..

When your roommates ask if you have tape and you return with your arms full of varying adhesives. "What kind?"

YKYACW you start to consider the advantages of specific potential degree fields to what it can do for your potential cosplay abilities.

YKYACW you've got your props lying in the foyer of your home because it's A) out of the way and B) the only place you've got left with enough humidity control left to ensure the paint will dry appropriately.

YKYACW you keep buying comic books that feature a certain character, not because the story is so good, but because you want to see the costume from every possible angle.

YKYACW you finally get a Saturday off and considering using it for making cosplays.
> when you get excited because October 3 and 31 are on Wednesdays and that means you can cosplay! (October 3 is FMA day! Going to try to get an FMA group together that day.)
