Interrupted while cosmaking

Have you ever been suddenly interrupted when you were cosmaking and did it piss you off?

Today I was starting to work in one of the clothpieces of my Izumi cosplay and I was ready to start while suddenly a friend sent me a SMS asking me to chat I was like inside.

Oh I'm in a constant state of being interrupted from my work. I've learned to start months in advance.

One of my newer roommates is a total "bro" sort, who as a result interrupts me regularly to talk about stupid shit while I'm trying to work (and actually work, I'm not just making personal cosplays). However, he finally clued in to "Don't interrupt me needlessly between 1 to 7 pm when my door is closed, my lamps are on, the sewing machine is running and I'm at my sewing table because for all effective purposes I am AT WORK" after a few days. For the most part.:P

My friends/acquaintances are so used to it I just keep working while they're around, unless I planned ahead of time to spend non-cosplay time with them. Sometimes I'll be like, "I'm going to the print shop to spray paint some stuff" and a non-cosplaying friend will come along just to hang out. I dunno. But it's easier with casual in-person contact.

If someone wants to have an IM chat or play board games or otherwise occupy my hands during my cosplay time and they don't tell me ahead of time, I am much the same: I will feel extremely irritated. Then I will start to make excuses to deflect them, starting out very polite and then getting desperate. Finally they will probably win and I will spend the rest of the day irritated that my cosplay time is gone. So it goes.

My phone is a distraction in general. I find no one brothers me UNTIL I'm in the middle of pinning something or have half a sleeve sewn on the machine.

Last month, I was in the "groove" of cosplaying...Cutting fabric and pinning a complex part of the costume and my sister, out of the blue, calls to say she's downstairs. She was like "I'm in the neighbourhood; do I want to go shopping. AUGH! NO! I want to finish this b**ch of a cosplay.

i live with my family and they're the type of family that don't know the meaning of the word privacy or respecting someone's space so they pretty much just knock/come in whenever they want. at least they're not too mean or rude about it and if i tell them to not disturb me, they're nice enough to do so but i constantly have to repeat myself because they apparently "forget" that i asked to be alone and that's the part that gets annoying.

also, my walls are super thin and both my dad and brother love to play their music super loud so i often have to concentrate twice as hard to get my work done. i put my headphones on too, but when you're hunched over, sewing or gluing, you definitely don't want headphone cables in the way.

My current distractions are the two new kittens my roommate and I adopted on Saturday. They're adorable and very energetic and /very/ curious, so I have to shut my door on them to get anything done. I feel so bad when I do, though! They sit by the door and meow to be let in, but I only have two and a half weeks to finish Override Satsuki for AWA and I have to get some work done. X_X Sorry kittens!

I usually get more irritated when people don't understand that I can't just drop what I'm doing RIGHTTHEN and go do something else. Like if I'm in the middle of casting something, or doing bondo work.

My profession is medical laboratory technician. One of the job postings I once read had this under qualifications:
"Able to work with frequent interruptions without loss of efficiency or composure."

My friends are understanding of how busy my projects are, but sometimes I can't help but sigh in frustration when they ask me about hanging out, especially if it's something like watching movies, which is one of my least favorite things to do (unless I'm in a theater).

I tried playing music while sewing, 30min later I looked down and realized I got so caught up singing that I stopped sewing -_- I tend to distract myself or wander away

I've gotten to the point where i put my headphone cable down the inside of my shirt (front or back, depending) and then leave my player in my pocket so I can't catch it with scissors or whatnot.

This is the main reason I put the tv on something I don't like..I use it as background noise, but if it's a show or movie I LIKE, I will totally get nothing done..I learned that the hard way..
Also, I'm the one doing the texting and distracting myself..lol

I found out that I like listening to documentaries on Youtube while working on my cosplay, especially those about serial killers make a good background noise.
