uhh...wow, that's tough.
I'd say B.

Would you rather have a good cosplay that gets little attention or a bad one that gets a lot?
(good attention. i.e. photos)

I'd rather have the good cosplay that gets little attention. I mean, I wouldn't want to be caught in a bad cosplay and have my photo taken of in that >.>

Would you rather;
A) Put together a cosplay that looks close enough, even though a few details are off, plus it'd be cheaper this way
B) Pay close to 200 dollars for the actual cosplay, whether factory made or commissioned?

A.
Would you rather:
A. Go as the villain of a series, that is despised within the series but kind of praised by fans.
B. Go as the hero of a series, who is loved within the series but no fans really care about.

I like being the good guy, so I'll go for B. I never care much what others think of who I cosplay anyway ^_^ So long as I have fun!

Would you rather:
A) Go to a con with an unfinished but working cosplay
B) Go to the con and not cosplay at all

B) If it is not finished then whats the point of wearing it.

Would you rather:

A. Wear a cosplay that has a huge fanbase of crazy fans
or
B. Get a compliment and picture taken from the voice actor that does the character your cosplaying, despite no one recognizing your cosplay for the whole con.

B for sure! I think getting the compliment from the voice actor would be worth not being recognized by a lot of people!

Would you rather...

A) have a decent costume, but have it be complete and everything looks accurate(wig, outfit, shoes, accesorries, and so on)

OR

B) have an amazing cosplay, but be missing a few of the details(like you don't have the right color wig and a few of the small details had to be left out.

I've been in both positions and can honestly say, I'd rather be in B.

Your choices are:
1. Pay a commission that maxes out your budget, resulting in an incomplete but perfectly made cosplay.
2. Tackle a project that exceeds your skill level, resulting in a complete but heavily flawed cosplay.

Assume you'll be photographed equally in both situations, land in cosplay music video and in a cosplay magazine.

I would rather have a great quality costume thats incomplete than a complete bad one (if you're gonna do it you might as well go all the way, right?)

The options are:
A. Get glomped multiple times by crazy-sweaty fans
B. Not get any hugs at all

A. I love love. =D Smelly and obnoxious love even (to a point).

Would you rather...

A.) Cosplay in a group, but have to cosplay a character you don't particularly like?
Or...
B.) Cosplay alone, but as your favorite character.

B. Alone and as my fave character. It would not be meaningful for me to cosplay something I don't like. And I may run into a group!

If someone really excited, jumps up and down and hugs you fiercely, but mistakes your character as someone else, would you rather...
A) Tell them who you actually are...
B) Smile, say thank you, and leave it be...

A, because that's actually happened. If I can make a joke out of it, though, I definitely would-- and it's a fun way to make a new friend!

Would you rather...
A: Spend an inordinate amount of time/money on an elaborate cosplay but be exhausted from pulling a before-con all-nighter, or
B: Sleep soundly the night before, but have a costume that is noticeably unfinished in places?

A. Definitely A.

Would you rather...
A. Face the possibility of people laughing at you because you're a bit on the chubby side and wearing a bare-stomach, thigh-revealing cosplay
B. Cover yourself up and never consider the possibility of looking incredibly awesome in that cosplay and having people want tons of pictures of you despite the fact you're not "skinny enough".

I would choose B because I am just a very conservative person. It took me years to finally feel comfortable in my own skin and still I won't wear anything that shows off my figure.

Would you rather....
A: Have a cosplay not fit you right the day of the con (Ex: Too tight or too big).
B: Have the cosplay fit you right but it's full of inaccuracies.

I felt the same way, but then, I cosplayed the Witch.

Umm... This is a hard choice... B cause I can always fix it later.

Would you rather...
A. Have a very excited person glomp you and spazz over your cosplay for ten minutes.
B. Have a meaningful conversation about your cosplay and the series it's from with someone for an hour or two.
