A! I actually never felt snakeskin pvc....but just the sound of it sounds uncomfortable.

Would you rather ....
a)Have less spending money and get a nice hotel room close to a convention
or
b)Have a not so nice room, farther away, and have more spending money.

(I, for one, think that a snake skin PVC costume would be EPIC if you could find the right character XD!)

My answer = A! I actually don't shop much at cons anyway, so less spending money is totally worth it for a nice room. I have done the further away and cheaper thing, but it was a condo that we rented for the weekend, so it was more like a house than a hotel room XP.

------------------------------------------------------------------

In this situation you have a PERFECT costume, except for one piece...WOULD YOU RATHER:
A~ Have a horrible wig/no wig at all
B~Have to wear flip-flops/sneakers when the costumes requires specific shoes.

B! I personally think wigs > shoes since people look at your head first usually anyway.

Ok.... Would you rather...

A. Wear shoes that are totally accurate to the character, but kill your feet
B. Wear an all white outfit and worry about staining it all day

Throw together a crappy cosplay... I'd probably hate myself for it, but it'd be better than involuntarily exposing myself to the public.

Okay, you're cosplaying a popular male character. Would you rather...

A. Be glomped by a rabid fangirl, resulting in possible costume breakage
B. Be smacked in the behind with a yaoi paddle... let's say it happens at least twice that day?

be stuck in a cosplay of a character you absolutely hate but have a friend with you who loves it and loves you for being with them
or cosplay your favorite character and have your friend be kinda angry with you and not speak to you.

I'd definitely rather be stuck in a cosplay of a character I absolutely hate, but have a friend with me who loves it and loves me for being with them.

At Ohayocon, I went with a friend but I was pretty much by myself the entire weekend and it sucked, even when I was in a cosplay of my favorite character in a video game series ever. Group > Self

Would you rather:

1. Not get your picture taken in a single day at any random con.
or
2. Get your picture taken, but by people who are either laughing at you (think outsiders that happen to be walking by) or putting down your costume in the process.

Seems genuine enough, though it hasn't happened to me to either extreme ^^

1. Not get my picture taken.

I've always been paranoid that people are saying bad things about me (a habit that I've carried since childhood), so I'd rather my picture not be taken.

Would you rather:
1. deal with a sewing machine that keeps acting up on a simple costume (ex. the needles keep breaking, the bobbin keeps getting tangled up)
2. sew a lined or multi-layered complex costume by hand?

a. I suck at hand-sewing 'cause I'm not used to it...not that I'm really used to machine sewing either, though. But if the costume's simple, it still would probably not take NEARLY as long or as much frustration as hand-sewing a complicated costume.

Would you rather...

a. Do one really complicated and detailed costume, but have it be your only costume for several conventions
or
b. Make a lot of simple costumes, enough that you'd have at least one for every day of the same amount of conventions, but with none of them particularly detailed?

This is usually how I roll. If I'm doing less complicated costumes I sometimes get lazy and make unnecessary mistakes because I am bored with the project. I make a few complex costumes a year and fill in with older costumes I've already made.

---------------

You have costume that you can not remove or add things to e.g. you can't add or remove a jacket/sleeves/etc (this will make your costume unrecognizable)

Would you rather...
a.) Be too warm in a costume -or-
b.) Be too cold in a costume

------

You don't have a wig for your costume and no time to get one.

Would you rather....
a) drop the cosplay altogether
b) make a paper bag with your character's face on it while wearing the costume

Not enter the masquerade and win a hall prize. I'm terrible with stage fright. (Gods help me when AUSA rolls around if I finish my secret project.)

Would you rather...
a ) Cosplay a character you really love with an intricate outfit but get no recognition or
b ) Cosplay a popular character whos outfit you really dislike for a group of friends?

b. Play on blissfully unaware until Michi locks the thread? XD
