(First off, gotta comment, Loveable-Eve, your avatar is f***king awesome.)

I'm silently judging every cosplayer I talk to. (Not that I ever say anything!)

..I really hate seeing local people planning the same costumes I want to do, especially if they're more popular than me.
And I usually end up dropping said plans if I haven't already bought anything for it.

I all but force my cosplay friends to do characters from a series I like. They have hardly any choice, but I apparently use Jedi brain-magic to convince them to cosplay with me. Or something.
And I don't usually like the plans they have, so I'm kind of a secret dictator.

^(Why thank you!)
I do the same, but I keep my mouth shut as well.

^Yup, this one. Every time I'm out shopping and I see fabric or something that would be perfect for the costume my friend is supposed to be making to go with mine, I text very pushy photos of whatever I'm looking at. "THIS, RIGHT? You need this. Let me buy this for you now." It's me in Kindergarten playing house and assigning everyone roles all over again...

I'm secretly jealous of people that cosplay the same characters as me and they have a group/partner cosplay going on T uT

And ditto on the silently judging other cosplayers. Can't help it </3

Yupyup. Bye bye KuroBasu and UtaPri costumes ;w;

And yep, I judge people silently. I think every cosplayer does XD

Not sure if this one is obvious or not, but I usually end up getting really excited over cosplaying a character before I even start watching the series. Going along with that, it's rare I'll get super pumped up for a costume if I've watched the while series, unless they have a really cool alternate design or something.

I don't really judge a cosplayer unless they have, like, cardboard and tinfoil on an otherwise serious costume. I'm not good enough to judge what's good and what's bad. Really, I can't tell.

Sometimes I want to force my friends to make cosplays since only one of them are serious about it, and she does gaming cosplays, where I do anime cosplays (She does Silent Hill, which I have not played. I know, right?)

I have an imaginary best friend in my head who cosplays just like me and I like making up scenarios where the two of us are having a good time. /forever alone

Oftentimes I will buy all the materials for a cosplay and even begin to construct it, only to decide against it a month before the con. That's probably why I'm so broke all the time.

I also will plan a cosplay, and then see that its been done so often and so much better than I could ever hope to make it and get extremely discouraged and just completely give up on that specific costume.

....ugh.....this is embarrassing but why not...it's a confessional after all.

I cry all day before every convention because I feel like I'm not a good enough cosplayer.
