B: The cold dosen't bother me as much as the heat, and besides, I'll be inside most of the time.

Would you rather:
Do an entire bodice worth of handbeading in two days.
- or -
Leave the handbeading out, but you get made fun of all con for not having it.

Do the entire bodice, even if I didn't finish the entire thing something is better than nothing.

Would you rather:
Wear accurate shoes that your character is portrayed as wearing, but be significantly shorter.(IE: Being a 5'3 person cosplaying Alucard)
-OR-
Wear shoes that give you a decent height boost but are drastically different than the designs.(IE: Character has black sneakers, you have neon green boots)

A, because I've cosplayed Vexen at 5'3" and got nothing but love. XD

WOULD YOU RATHER....
-Catch a skirt/dress hem in an escalator and have it rip irreparably, but nobody ses it happen so you're at least not embarassed
OR
-Break a shoe heel on stage and have everyone see it happen, resulting in embarassment, but not an irreparably ruined cosplay

I'm rpetty sure these are geared towards girls, but I've probably have to say catch my skirt or dress cause I'll be dead before I ever wear high heels on stage, but with the skirt I could play it off like in a the coppertone sun tan lotion pose



Would you rather wear a VERY HEAVY and hot cosplay in Florida,

or

Wear very skimpy Cosplay in Alaska?

I'd actually have to say the Alaska one, because you can always add a jacket of some sorts. I don't particularly like skimpy cosplay, but I'd prefer that to melting. I did an organization XIII cosplay in Australia in the middle of summer... Never again.


Would you rather:

a) Get a wig quite a while before the con, and style it properly, only to have someone spill something on it before the con, and you don't have time to order another

or

b) Order a wig for a character that requires major styling, but only receive the wig the night before the con, so you can't style it, and have to go to the con without the styled hair.

Considering I actually worked as a hairdresser for years, I prefer to do it myself since I actually know HOW, I mean I even spiked up REAL hair like the slim jim man for halloween one year you know how hard it is to spike up hair that's down past her ass? XD

Watching her trying to get into the car was priceless....


Would you rather

a) have your cosplay ruined by a gnome

or

b) be glomped by man faye.

Well cardboard is kind of stupid looking and can hurt somebody, while noodle foam is even more stupid and not very really looking. So I could have to go with A)

Would You Rather

A) Finally be able to finish a cosplay, but it would look very weird.
Or
B) Cosplay an internet character that not everybody has heard of.

B) Tis not too shabby.


Would you rather...


A) Go to a Dealer's room where barely anything interests you.



B) Go to a Dealer's room where EVERYTHING interests you. But you would seriously overspend greatly...

B actually. This happened to me last con and it was actually a relief to go the whole con and only spend two dollars (not counting food).

Now, Would You Rather:

A) Cosplay a character from a book that has never been made into a movie or anything, so you have only the author's descriptions to go by, and risk not being recognized.

-OR-

B) Cosplay an extremely popular character, but do a really obscure artbook version, and get recognized, but have EVERYONE tell you you did it wrong.

A) Hopefully, if the costume is elaborate and appealing enough, it could till spark some interest.

There is 8 of you rooming in a hotel room together.
Would you rather...


A) Stay at a hotel where the bathroom is really small and tight on space. But the bedroom is really roomy, open and with alot of comfy places to sleep.

B) Stay at a hotel where the bedroom is really small and tight on space. But the bathroom is big and spacious, with a large mirror and lot's of nice lighting.

B, because I'm the one who always ends up sleeping in the bathroom. XD

Would You Rather:

A) Have to make costumes for everyone in a large group and nearly die of exhaustion, but win an award for your exploits.

-OR-

B) Have someone else make all the costumes, so you don't die of exhaustion, and THEY win the award.

I'd say B) because it's more fun with more people in tight rooms (more squirming) besides at a con mornings are the worst with so many people in a tight space bathroom wise.



How would you rather

Go to a

Hentai party

or

Yaoi Pajama party

my last con actually had both, and it was at the sametime so just wondering

HENTAI PARTY oh sorry.

Would your rather
A) Cosplay as an anime character from your childhood (you know My Neighbor Totoro, Digimon, YuGiOh, and Pokemon)

or

B) Cosplay as a character that you don't know that well.

I would say A) so I could cosplay as Totoro, but these days people have furry fetishes and that scares me >_<;

So I'd say B) as long as I could pull it off well, but then I would study up on the character before doing so.



Would you rather

be whipped by a Kurama cosplayer

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v8.../kurama_39.jpg

Or Rider cosplayer?

(can't really think of anything good -_-) just wanted to answer questions :P
