I also get jealous of cosplayers with partners/groups that are cosplaying the same thing as me. Forever alone Korra *sob* (My avatar is with a random Bolin that spotted me at Fanime)

Some friends of my friends sometimes cosplay the same thing as me. I judge them the hardest when I see them.

also, I sometimes regret putting up tutorials for my Korra outfit as I almost never get any credit from the people following my tutorials.

Theres going to be a new seaon of Rozen Maiden? I'm really exited now XDDD

Cosplay confession: I want to do a bunch of cosplays, but I'm too much of a newbie to be able to actually make them look good (I have no absolutely no experience). I 'm going to be doing Mephisto Pheles for Youmacon, so hopefully he's easy enough to pull off

Confession: I only cosplay characters if I think I'll be hot as them. I haven't been wrong so far. B]

Lol, I'm planning to try to make three of my friends cosplay as Meryl, Wolfwood, and Millie at Ohayocon since I'm cosplaying Vash. I don't know if I'll even be able to get them to all go, let alone cosplay.

Sometimes when sewing commissions I see that a hem is crocked and don't care...

I've bought BOLTS of fabric for cosplays I have not done. You know, Kirito from SAO? I bought a ton of black fabric to make him, but decided not to (thankfully, I dislike cosplaying as super popular characters).

Confession: I really hate that even if I do a really accurate and good cosplay, if someone does a "sexy" version they'll get way more attention.

Awww, as long as you put effort into it, people will love it! Don't be worried, I'm sure you'll have a blast!

LOVE THIS! And love your cosplays, awesome stuff!

I spent ridiculous amounts of time looking at cosplays others had done of the character I wanted to cosplay to determine what bugged me about theirs and what I wanted to avoid doing. That said I have immense respect for those cosplayers, their costumes, and the effort they put in... but after researching the character for so long, I could see all the *little* discrepancies. Not to say my rendition didn't have any

Going along with this, despite how happy I am with a cosplay partner for a specific costume, I fantasize about having that one cosplay partner who wants to cosplay everything to match mine and we look all fabulous together and can do all the cute pictures we want--
...I also just want a really attractive Sebastian cosplayer to cosplay with my Ciel. I swear, if I did, I don't think I would ever stop getting new outfits for Ciel.

I'm really jealous of a lot of my irl cosplay friends because they have a lot more talent and expendable money to do stuff then me. I've learned a lot thru trial and error but my friends get it perfect in one go because they know what their doing while I'm stuck trying to figure things out. I don't have the money to go out and take sewing lessons or hair styling classes to improve myself other then searching high and low on the internet for something I'm not quite sure exist.

Ineedaname9 - Why don't you ask your friends if they would help you with your cosplays or teach you some of their tricks for creating perfect costumes on the first try?

My confessions:
I don't really like being in the same photo as other people who are the same character as me because I know people will then compare us and I'm usually the one who is considered to be "not as good as the other". I am pretty confident in my cosplaying abilities when I am alone or at home working on my costume... but when I start comparing myself to other people or when in the presence of other people cosplaying the same character as me, that confidence quickly disappears.

I have an irrational fear of Jack Sparrow impersonators, and along that same line of thinking... I have began to develop a fear of really good cosplayers. I used to be able to go up to them and compliment them on their costumes and take a picture but now I am scared to even approach them.

I silently judge cosplayers too, but I really try not to >.< most of the time I am just judging the cosplayers more for how they are acting than anything else and I secretly/not so secretly judge the large groups of fandoms making tons of noise in the hallway (but honestly, who isn't judging those people? lol).
