What do you like to listen too when working on Cosplay?

I am one of those people that can't stand it being quiet, I need something to listen to when I am doing anything. Working on my cosplays is no different. Personally I like to listen to something that gets me pumped up and excited, usually this means 2ne1, BAP, or Block B. However when I get frustrated and something isn't working out right I need to step away for a bit and then come back. When I come back I usually like to listen to things that calm me down like David Choi or Sam Hart. And when I am working together on cosplays with certain friends we listen to NateWantsToBattle.

Depends on the way the wind blows, I guess. A lot of times I like listening to stuff like Daft Punk and Renard, sometimes it's more of a Squirrel Nut Zippers day. Sometimes it's screamy indie guys.

More often than not, it's a singalong with PiC.

Hrm, whatever tickles my fancy at the time, really. When I'm working with patterns and drafting or editing, though, I try to avoid anything that makes me bob my head or want to dance. It's a bad combination when I need to focus. XD When sewing, I'll listen to anything really. Embroidering on the other hand... that just takes so long I plop myself in front of a TV or listen to LPers.

My taste in music is really broad so in the end, there's no one genre I tend to stick to when working on something. When I get really excited, though, I tend to listen to the MLP:FiM Rarity song "Art of the Dress" or Disney's Princess and the Frog "Almost There." XD

Oh I love listening to Disnay songs too when I work Mostly "I Can Go the Distance" from Hercules mostly because it speaks to how I feel about going to Conventions.

"I have often dreamed of a far of place, where a great warm welcome will be waiting for me. Where the crowds will cheer, when they see my face, and voice keeps saying 'this is where I'm meant to be'"

If I'm not playing movies for background noise (generally Ghibli because I've seen them all so I'm not too distracted) then I put Pandora on and play the Nightwish channel, since that brings up all the music I'm into currently.

Usually I listen to Devil May Cry (any of the first 4) Soundtracks or the Eyeshield 21 Soundtrack. I also listen to Loreena Mckinnett, Enya, Celtic Thunder or random "Fairy Music."

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know.... So what if they conflict a bit...I have a bi-polar music brain, okay!!?

I either put on the soundtrack of what I'm working on, play the series/movie for background noise and references, shuffle my mp3 players which has a VERY eclectic mix of music from house to German heavy metal to opera (it seems the only requirement for me liking a music genre is "modal", "With keyboards/orchestra" or "Unusual"...), or I'll put on Koyaanisqatsi, an old art-film favourite of mine. Minimalism music seems to help me work.:P

I actually can't listen to mucis while I make my cosplays..Being a musician myself, I hpretty much can't listen to music without playing guitar along with it..Which makes it impossible to do anything haha I watch TV. If I wanna watch an anime, I pick one I know very well already so if I happen to miss anything because of my sewing maching noise, I don't have to worry about what's missed.

I have no specific music...but I noticed I like to sew while listening (I'm not looking much at the screen) to documentaries about crimes or such, while sewing or painting. Its sort of relaxing....and I probably know about every major serial killer by now.

I love listening to those type of documentaries... I just get pulled in to watching any that I'm not already familiar with, so its a 50-50 chance on whether or not it effects my efficiency, lol.

Delerium, Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, and Paul van Dyk are my usual go-to's when I'm crafting. That, and I have enough of their music so I don't have to constantly switch to avoid constant repeats.
