This happened to me soooo many times at Fanime. I was the only Princess Cadence (mlp) and the comments legit were: 1. Pretty costume! 2. I think you are the only one here 3. Where's shining Armor?
The funny thing is one of my best friends is being Shining Armor, but he lives across the country, and luckily is comming to AX with me again this year; so after a while, every single time the last part was asked I was just like ._. Florida. Shining Armor is in Florida.
My pet peeves as of late:
1. Friends getting offended because they wanted to "surprise me" by doing a couple cosplay with me... already, just no. And then when they find out that I have someone else doing that cosplay ( which was planned wwaaayyy before hand) they get all offended. It may be that I'm just frustrated as hell anyways with this person, but I just found that obnoxious. ( Online friend meeting at a con vs. said shining armor above whom i asked as soon as I decided to be cadence x.x )
2. my 2 week before hand I CAN SEW ALL THE COSPLAYS mind set. it happens every single time. Its like I will be all of everything is good, I can wear as is, or like this little thing needs to be painted or mended. but once its 2 weeks before my mind is like YOU ARE DOING THIS COSTUME RIGHT NOW! ( hence Assasin Serah Farron.... which like last month I was like eh, eventually.)
3. Wigs. just, grah wigs. I'm more for things looking "natural" ( which a friend moced me for saying about my konako wig lol) then like spot on accurate but solid as a rock, but just in general, people, a leas get good ones x.x not the like HELLO IM SHINY thin wigs at like the k-mart Halloween section for $10. depending on the wig you could get a way beer one online for like $15 >.<
4. ( I originally wrote a HUGE ran of this lol heres he edited down version)
FAMILY NOT UNDERSANDING I COSPLAY PARTICULAR THINGS. THEY COME FROM REFRANCE PICTURES. Holy freakin crap ok. This bugs me to no end recently.
#1 Grandma tried to guilt me into letting my cousin use my bowblade for Sera Farron for his first fanime ever.( and I havenít seen him in YEARS) He was not cosplaying as Serah, nor anyone from Final Fanasy. He doesnít even know what ff is. So after much debate I finally just said no, is mine and I need it all days ( lie, lol)
She then asked me to make his props ( which you prop makers out there know, its work and its not like his birthday and I wasntít gonna be paid or given credit, like with my friends who I make things for cause hey will be with me and any questions or comments they go I didnít do it and I get the questions, which I love! ) She then was like I dunno just make him something, and proceeded to guilt me.
#2 Same kind of situation, but nicer. Today my aunt or cousin, Idk asked me if I could make something for her son ( younger male cousin I see 3-4 times a year, and heís adorable XD ) for his birthday. I was like sure! I defiantly could! Because I know he has an interested in videogames cause he is interested in anything that is a video game, regardless of actual game XD but again, I asked what and she was like I dunno just somthin cool. GRAH
#3 my Assassinís creed shirt. My relatives seem to have this idea that if they tell me to change the design of a costume I will go alone with it and be all omg it looks so good now! They liked everything about the shirt, but the hood. They waned me to take the poin off he hood cause they claimed it looked silly ( exep one aunt hat liked it XD ) finally my dad was like itís from Assasinís Creed guys, thatís how it is.
#4 last bit. I like to make custom dolls (ponies, barbies, ect) and a long time ago I made a custom Barbie of Tifa from FFVIIAC and my aunt insisted that I give her fishnets, they go suuupppeerrr pissed off hen I told her no, that isnít what Tifa looks like.
