Definitely B. It's better to have extra fabric, since I'm prone to making easy mistakes. (Plus, this happens a lot already.)

Would you rather:
1. Wear full-body makeup for the first time, only to discover later that you are allergic to an ingredient in it and break out into hives
2. Wear shoes that give you blisters + badly fitted corset that gives you bruises?

#2, i can survive blisters and bruises for a con, but hives are the least fun thing EVER

Would you rather...
a) have your costume rip in an inappropriate place, while you have no backup clothes
b) get a very sugguestive looking stain on your costume, while you have no backup clothes

B, because whenever I go to a con, so does my cosplay medkit. I'd fix it right there ^-^

Would you rather:
A) Have your boss/parents/crush discover a picture of you in a skimpy costume.
B) Find a panty-shot of yourself online where everyone can see it - and they know it's you.

A- I would rather 1 or 2 people see something like that than a ton of people online I don't even know.
would you rather:
A: Go to a con with a ton of friends, but none of you are in cosplay or all inquickly made low quality cosplay.
or
B. Go to a con all alone in an amazing, perfect cosplay,

B. I tend to go to cons alone anyway and just meet people there.

Would you rather....
A: Eat pocky as your only "meal"
B: Sacrifice convention time to get a DECENT meal?

If I can still go to the convention, B.

Would you rather (if you were/are male):

Do a hardcore Yaoi photo with someone.

or

Cross-Dress in a very revealing outfit through-out the entire Con weekend.

(Remember, this is if you were/are a male)

Edit: Crap, I typed too slowly and coincidentally posted at the SAME time as someone else..

My answer to FatalDreams was B: Sacrifice convention time to get a DECENT meal.

Alas - I'll wait a turn before posting mine.
In the meantime, we need a dude to answer Destined Blade's post to keep this moving.

DestinedBlade:

YAOI POSE. ... Seeing as you'd be thought gay either way, why be uncomfortable physically? Besides, people are more likely to remember a crossplay than a pose.
... Or maybe I'd end up doing both.


You are making a light-ish blue vest/shirt for a cosplay and you travel THREE HOURS to the nearest fabric store. You are dismayed to find that the fabric selection is extremely limited. However, you find two blue fabrics. One of them is perfect, the PERFECT COLOR and everything but it has a slight check pattern... The other fabric is crappy and bright blue.

A) You choose the slight checked fabric because it's perfect despite the slight pattern.
B) Bright blue over a pattern anyday!

A) - Because I would want the better quality fabric overall XD

Would you rather...

A) Bump into your favourite actor/artist of all time and actually get the opportunity to chat with them for more than 5 minutes.
B) Win a masquerade contest and recieve a top prize.

a) Starve all day - I know myself all too well and Murphy's law is in effect at all times.

---------

Say that your cosplay isn't your best work (or you didn't happen to buy the best cosplay)...

Would you rather...
a.) Find that someone has uploaded your cosplay pics on 4chan to diss your costume
b.) Get dissed in person about your cosplay

Things to consider: 4chan has many cosplay thread viewers but getting dissed in person sounds like no day at the beach either.

Probably B. :/ That way it would be just one person and not a slew of internet jerks! Even if my costume was crappy, I could just say, "Oh, one person's a jerk" instead of "oh, the entire internet hates me." XD

Would you rather...
A.) Buy a regular badge for a con (for let's say $50) and get to do whatever you wanted with your time
or
B.) Work 20+ hours for the con and get a free badge and hotel room.

There some particular thing that you cannot do while working for the CON.

Would you rather...

A.) Get a thousand hug a day with unknown people while wearing your intricate costume.

or

B.) Get a spank of YAOI padel everytime you refuse to hug.

Question Would You rather...

A) I'd get a thousand hugs...I like hugs. xDD Besides, if you're wearing an intricate costume, a paddle may do more damage than a hug. O__O

Would you rather...
A) Make a large prop for the accurate-ness () of your costume and carry it around the con all day

or

B) Not make the prop at all and sacrifice the accurate-ness (>__<; ), so you can walk around the con more comfortably?
