Would You Rather... cosplay.com edition!

Well, I'm slightly bored and didn't find this game already posted so how about a game of Would You Rather...

Rules:
a.) How to play: Answer the "Would You Rather" ahead of yours then post your own conundrum using the format I'll model in the first one.

b.) No godmoding: Don't choose "both", "neither", or make something up.

c.) If you have multiple "Would You Rathers" wait a few turns before posting another one.

d.) Keep your "Would You Rathers" cosplay or con-related as this is a cosplay forum. They can be as serious or silly as you want though.


---------Let the games begin! I'll start-------------

Would you rather...
a.) Go to a con and have a great time but part of your costume gets destroyed
b.) Not go at all?

b. Not go at all man. Save my time, effort and money.


Would you rather...

a. Deal with that crazy fangirl to avoid con security because you lost your con badge
b. Spend the money to get another badge?

Since my money's usually tight, deal with that crazy fangirl.

Would you rather......
a. Spend hundreds of dollars and hours on a costume that looks great but most people won't recognize
b. Do a really cheap closet cosplay from something popular but feel bad about making something so easy?

Edit: CURSES! I was too slow

I'd choose

B.) Cheap, some what popular but it depends on the situation also

Would you rather...

A.) Tear something apart because it doesn't look good even though you've already gotten half-way through the costume
B.) Throw it aside and ditch the costume all together.

If you see me, don't be shy to approach me. I may be Asian but I'm not an elitist nor am I a jerk face :3. I'm just one crazy hyper Asian ^.^

If you find me on Facebook, please don't hold a grudge if I reject you :x. I just don't add random people.

B. I'd probably throw it aside and ditch it. I'd be too stressed to start it over at that point in time.

Would you rather...

a. Cosplay in a group so you're not alone, but you're not familiar with the fandom so when people approach you about it, you don't know what to say about it and it's REALLY awkward
b. Cosplay alone and feel comfortable in your fandom

b. Cosplay alone and feel comfortable in your fandom. I totally did that at AnimeNEXT last year and was the only Tales cosplayer amidst a swarm of Persona kiddies. XD

(You commissioned a costume, received it but cannot alter it in any way)
Would you rather...

a.) this costume be a little too small and look trashy
b.) this costume be a little too big and look sloppy

DAMN YOU ION! I'm going to get you for this one day xDD

B.) I'll make it look right even if I did commission it >_>;; one way or another iut will look less

Would you rather...

a.) Go to a con with a fake even though this person is your ride/stay
b.) drive the 1hour to and back from the con.

Edit: For example, VA to Baltimore, MD.

I'm sure there's nothing wrong with answering a question that's already been answered. Can't predict when people will reply.

And I'll let you answer the question that's at hand.

You kidding me? Ok my question is asking

A.) Would you rather go to a con with someone whose fake (As in, bullshits his/her way through everything, thinks they're all that, acts like a know it all, an elitist) but that person is your ride to the con and your stay.

b.)Example, I live in VA, to Baltimore its an hour or two away. Stay with fake friend or drive back and forth from and to con.

If you still dont' understand I give up >_>

Ok gotcha.
a. It's pretty hard to get me annoyed no matter how annoying someone is. On the other hand, I absolutely HATE driving.

Would you rather...

a. Cosplay your favorite character
b. Cosplay a character you may or may not be relatively familiar with, however, people have told you you look very similar to the character

b. Well actually, I've done that before. Not that you need to LOOK like the character to cosplay them, but you're able to pull it off better because you have their features.

Would you rather...

a. Eat that con, knowing that the food is more expensive, but your feet hurt and you're sore, and you really don't feel like venturing out for food.
b. Take the trek for cheaper food even though your body is probably hating you for making that decision.

edit: AAAAAH, OUTSIDER BEAT ME TO IT. XD

a. If I'm sore and don't feel like going to find cheaper food, I'm going to eat at the con. XD I usually eat at cons anyway.

Would you rather...

a.) Spill something on your costume and have it ruined
b.) Not wear the costume out at all, having no chance to show off your hard work

a.) Spill something on your costume and have it ruined. If you aren't going to wear it, why make it? Besides, I make too much stuff anyways, nothing like another excuse to make an old costume better xD

Would you rather...

a. "Cheat" on your costume here and there, where only a few people would notice
b. Spend days, maybe weeks longer gettng everything EXACTLY the way it should be

b .... I would love to cheat but I would hate myself for doing it.


Would you rather ....
a) Make your next costume entirely out of satin
or
b) make your next costume entirely out of snakeskin pvc
(i'm sorry, i'm harsh xD)
