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.
Gah I feel your pain on that one. At Anime USA last year I was Charden from Black Cat and a bunch of people would come up to me and say "Charden! Where's Kyoko?" My Kyoko didn't have the money to come to the con that year, so Kyoko couldn't make it, OK people? DX

Pet Peeve: Looking up cosplay ideas and finding gorgeous, intricate, detailed, awesome ball gowns from some anime/game... Then when you look up the characters you find out it might potentially be a hentai. That's not necessarily a problem I guess, but I know that a lot of people feel that hentai cosplayers are weird. But that's just it-these costumes dont' look like hentai costumes! And they're amazing! And my sister is still trying to pick her first costume, so I thought maybe we could do them together (she'll be eighteen when she does do her first costume) but now I'm afraid to even mention them to her...

Things just got complicated and I've never had to deal with this before. I really love the designs of these costumes, and for the most part they're covering important things! Some of the dresses have slight cleavage but... they're ball gowns for crying out loud...

^ Many anime series started off as H-games. Some are even ridiculously popular in the mainstream, such as Fate/Stay Night.

So if it doesn't look like hentai, but just a beautifully done dress, will it go over well?

I showed my sister the dresses and explained all that to her, and she still loves the dresses and started picking out her favorites. I think that was her deciding she loved the dresses so much she didn't care what they were from. Also considering I can't find jack diddly squat about the game/anime, I'm wondering if it's even well known :/

I'm debating on just doing the dresses because they really are gorgeous.

People telling me to smile in photos. There's this thing called being in character! What is it with people and their OCDness about having to see people smiling all the time anyway?

I don't think anyone will mind unless you go about reenacting scenes from the game.

When someone goes up to one of your friends and you because you have a closet cosplay of Sasuke and Naruto because you didn't have time to fix your Naruto cosplay because of finals and they bully you! This happened to me and one of my friends. And the sad part is that they FOLLOWED us! We had to pass by the registration area where we knew staff was and they left us alone.

Oh no of course not, my sister isn't like that and neither am I. In fact this game is just so underground I can't find anywhere to download it or even find clips of it! I'm trying hard just so I can get an idea of the characters, is this one shy, is that one outlandish, does that one have a sense of humor? But so far, nothing. We'll probably just stand there and look pretty.

I was drawing out a pattern on some fabric, and whilst wearing my costume (for reference as I was drawing out a sailor collar and need to see if it would fit right on me and my costume). I was adjusting my costume and accidentally drew on my cosplay. It was only a little but I panicked and quickly scrubbed it, with a little bit of stain remover. There's still a slight dark patch even though I got most of it out. Thankfully that bit will be covered in trim anyway.

But darn it, I need to be more careful!

I hate that! D-: I did it with my cosplays last year! I almost didn't have enough to finish both of them!

Pet Peeve: My own guit, people who just don't listen, and people not getting the fact something is the wrong color. All three combined.

Reason's why: Someones trying to buy a wig of me for a cosplay and keeps trying but I keep trying to tell her that it's the wrong color for that particular cosplay. She wants to buy my auburn wig but er... she wants to use it for Sora from Kingdom Hearts. Sora has brown hair. I just don't want her buying this wig from me and being disappointed when its not the right color. But er...I guess if she keeps bothering me about it then I'll just sell it to her I guess. This be so much easier if it wasn't one of my fb... UGH I tried at least? I have no right to deny her...

It's not Princess Waltz, is it? I'm finding I'm in that same dilemma. I picked up the game because it looked gorgeous (and the sex scenes just kinda seem... wedged in there). I'm a little iffy about cosplaying from the game, but OMG Angela's dress.

More of a site peeve then a general cosplay peeve....but seeing people constantly bumping their threads in the marketplace forums. I get it if you come back every few days, and just bump it. But to see people do it every hour...ridiculous and it doesn't make me want to buy anything from you. Sorry after seeing a few people do that it just got on my nerves.
