Cosplay Nightmares

I never thought it'd come to this, but recently I had a nightmare I forgot ALL my cosplays for an upcoming convention. I was stuck at a con with photoshoots and no costumes!

TERRIBLE!

Anyone else have cosplay nightmares? Or am I just a huge nerd

I had a dream that I ran out of clay before I finished my prop, and there was nothing I could do to get anymore. As soon as I woke up that morning I checked my clay and started working on it lol

I had ones where I had cut my wig too short or it was really cheaply made(think party city).

The only specific cosplay-dream I remember is a really beautiful long black wig had come in the mail for my Vriska cosplay while my firends were over. My friends promptly ripped it from the bag and started playing 'hot potato' with it to the point where it couldn't be repaired or untangled.

...my friends like to try my wigs on and play with them while I am out of the room. I was fine with it at first but after they actually destroyed a real wig of mine I have to lay down some rules when they come to visit.

It wasn't a nightmare but once I had a dream where I met a bunch of cosplayers, they were really nice to me so I joined them! It was a happy yet sad dream because I live in a really small town and nobody here likes cosplay (or know what it is).

I always have these around con time. I've had so many nightmares where I didn't have any of the costumes started and was trying to make them in the hotel room the night before. I've also had dreams that my costumes looked terrible and people ridiculed them like crazy. Luckily, none of those have happened. I've had costumes not finished until the day before I wore them, but never any that weren't started at all.

I had one a little while ago- it was the morning of my local convention, and I was getting ready. I had my robes, but the skyscraper-crown that makes the rest of the costume make sense was nowhere to be found- I had never made it!

Then it got worse- I had no robes whatsoever- my costume was in its uncompleted state, an unhemmed petticoat with no waistband, draped over my desk chair.
I was oh so very screwed, no costume at all to enter the contest with!

I had another one like it the year before, but I was wandering around the con finding outfit pieces I could use to make a pretty cool closet cosplay instead.

Needless to say, this latest dream was a kick in the ass- I finished that petticoat, finished the blouse, and am now working on the overskirt, and researching how to build that crown.

I get cosplay/convention dreams occasionally, I had one last week though, where I still hadn't finished my Eternal Sailor Moon cosplay, but went to the convention anyway - however I saw one of my non-cosplaying friends (who isn't interested in anime and such either) was there and made the anime version of Eternal Sailor Moon and it was beautifully made.

Yep, some serious jelly happened within that dream..

My cosplay dreams always tend to involve have no costume, or one that is half completed. If the costume is done, then we get lost on the way to the convention and the dream drifts away from that genre so we never end up going... Or it can be a nice dream where I buy all this rare merchandise for cheap prices....until you wake up to none of it.

>:I

I often have this same exact dream just before I go to a con. My brother does, too. We also have nightmares about having people come with us who ruin the entire con >_<
Needless to say, we are always quite relieved when we wake up.

I've never had a nightmare, but I did have a dream one time. I had a dream that I was all ready for the Con, I was packed, and hanging out with my friends, playing on my DS. I literally just stopped, in the middle of the dream and went "This is BULL. I am NEVER finished on time. It MUST be a dream."

And was so startled by the strength of my denial that I woke up. Then spent the next hour with my head under my pillow going "oh pleasepleaepleaseplease go back to that dream, it was a nice dream!" ><

Had one where I'm packing up my Worldcon masquerade costume, I double checked that every thing is packed carefully and in it's proper place, and my husband also double checked for me. Then we arrive in Chicago and I realize my costume is in my living room in DC.

Woke up with a start and couldn't sleep after that one.

I've never had as severe of a nightmare as MoradoFlower, but I do remember having dreams that I'm at a con but not in an inaccurate Sweeney Todd costume. Like I was wearing just a random pair of pants, vest, and a shirt, and I had my hair done. Not exactly a nightmare, but not really an ideal situation either. lol
I bet the nights before Otakon I'll have dreams of all my dreadlocks in my Jack Sparrow wig randomly falling out or something like that (or finding out that all the beads in my wig are in the wrong order ) haha
