my current peeve..Detangling long wigs.
Damn it Ririchiyo.
I want to take pictures with you but every time I have to spend 15+ minutes getting tangles out..I know there are solutions to this but I don't have the money or skills to spend on them right now.

Also..sister taking my cosplay stuff. She decided she would use the detangler I use for Chiyo for her own hair. All I can say is if she ends up using it up or taking it off to college with her, she's paying to replace it and any other stuff she steals. I can only hope she hasn't used the comb I use on my wigs while I wasn't looking since I accidentally left it out.

Weather being too cold to spray paint. >_<

This is all I can do in terms of cosplay related things for now and I can't do it and it is annoying me so much...

I want to buy everything. The yen is weaker now than it has been all last year, so *everything* is tempting me.

When someone wants to commission from you, but won't make the effort to get in touch with you. I am a busy person, especially when it comes to sewing. Expecting -me- to chase -you- down is ridiculous. I do not need to make you anything. I'm not going to beg you to know what it is you want me to make. If you want it, put in the effort to get in contact with me.

I really hate the random feeling of thinking i can only pull of male characters when i get sad about certain apects of myself, despite the fact i know other wise. I'm my own worst enemy sometimes. I usally start to hate the broadness of my back and my hands. Then it transitions into, i feel so unable to make multiple facial expressions.

(;^; ) I will strive harder!!!!! and not let myself feel so down.

I've seen it around lately that people are angry about 'elitist' cosplayers looking down on those who don't make their own costumes. They're unhappy that they don't get any respect as cosplayers just because of their inability to sew, or their lack of time, or whatever. Their views are fair. I just don't share them.

I don't have anything against people who commission cosplays. They can be wicked fun people, and some of my closest cosplay friends have no idea how to work a sewing machine. But they just don't get a good deal of respect from me for their costume. As people, as friends, yes. As models, yes. Makeup-artists, yes. But for their costume, no. When someone just throws money at something to make it happen...

And that's my unpopular opinion of the day.

Biggest pet peeve is cosplayers who act nice but then turn out to be total psychos when they think no one is looking. I really admired JasonTerror but after what he said to someone on Tumblr, I don't think I'll ever look at them the same.

Are you trying to start a fight? >.< It's not really ok to talk poorly of other users...

So I should just accept a lack of respect because I can't sew, or because I simply don't have the time too? That's not fair. When it comes to sewing, my hands are basically cinder-blocks attached to my wrists. I have tried to sew before, I really have. And it turned out so horrid I burned what I made and never looked back. Does that mean I deserve less respect as a cosplayer? :/

To be fair he does have a habit of completely changing from nice guy to full on angry man.

I went out of my way to say that I don't see people who don't make their own costumes as undeserving of respect. I just find it difficult to see something that someone purchased as a reason to respect them more.

Like this. If my friend bought a Mustang, that would be frikkin sweet. It took work and time for him to save up the money, and I would constantly say "nah, let's take your car instead" just to sit in the passenger seat, but in the end it's just an item that he spent some money for. It's not a bad thing. It is what it is.

Honestly, in my opinion what's meant by "respect" is simply showing common courtesy and not being insulting and looking down on someone.

Example A!
Person 1: Oh my god, I love your cosplay! Sailor Moon is my favorite! How long did it take you to make it??
Person 2: Thank you, ah actually I commissioned it from GetYourCosplayHere dot com
Person 1: Well, it looks great on you! Can I have your picture?

Vs!

Example B
Person 1: Oh my god, I love your cosplay! Sailor Moon is my favorite! How long did it take you to make it??
Person 2: Thank you, ah actually I commissioned it from GetYourCosplayHere dot com
Person 1: What? That's crap, you're such a fake cosplayer, I bet it's cheap too. Real cosplayers make their own costumes. Allow me to give you the stink eye as I walk away in disdain!
