I was just about to say this. I have two 2 GB cards, so it's not that much trouble to get pictures of both people. Sometimes, the other person hasn't had that many pictures taken of them and they feel kinda left out.

And you never know: they actually may be part of the series and you just aren't aware of it. My brother and I ran into that when we were cosplaying Voltron and Allura. Everyone wanted pictures of him and they looked at me strange because I posed with him. We were going "um... Allura's one of Voltron's pilots..." Silly kids not knowing their old school anime.

This is why I always ask whether they want a picture of both of us, since Ash Ketchum is recognised by everyone but Gary not so much and I don't want to be that friend. This exact thing happened on Friday, where a non-congoing student came up and asked for my friend's picture, saying she was trying to get a picture of every Pokémon character she saw. We asked whether she wanted me in it too then, being from Pokémon and all, and she just said "Who's Gary Oak?"... so I just quietly scooted away, pfff.

My pet peevee right now.. is people telling me that me and my fiancé planned the proposal at Anime North 2012 just so we could win a masquerade prize..

No we didn't plan it! My fiancé planned this all in secret, toyed with the audio while I wasn't home to be able to suprise me on stage with a proposal. It wasn't to win anything.. geez I didn't even think we would win something. It was my second time in a masquerade and I was doing it for the sheer fun of it!

*pouts* yeah.. that's my rant.. that and boot covers being evil..

Pet Peeve: Not to sound like an ungrateful bitch but friends who agree to help you with cosplay stuff then keep changing the budget he's willing to do to explain he agreed to help me with some stuff in return for me helping him out a lot.....so we came up with a budget that I thought he was fine with but then all I get from him is whining about he wants to go out to eat.... well i'm sorry but you agreed to plan and I want you to stick it
He was paying me 25$ one week to set aside for him so he wouldn't spend it then 50$ the next week the weeks he would pay me fifty is when he would whine and I finally got sick of it....to the point I just went screw it YOU ASK ME to HELP YOU you whiny bastard and all you do is COMPLAIN ....last I checked I am helping you with costumes in addition to including mine to save on shipping so not wanting to hear his pathetic whining I changed the plan AGAIN to 25$ A week..... except at the first of the month and he went "BUt what about eating out?" Me: "Dude.....you want to cosplay! Cosplayers cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Cosplaying's first law of equivalent exchange." (Lol FMA like XD) feh If I am ungrateful....I apologize but really GEH....

Pet peeve? When I'm in the middle of working on something and need to make a long trip someplace, and the something I'm working on isn't portable. Gah, if only I could take it with me this would be done so much quicker...

I have a grievance to air:
Pinky Pie cosplays or Pinky Pie wigs being sold where the hair is wavy at best. It bugs me because the character is CLEARLY sporting big, curly, hair. It's partially an accuracy problem and partially a society problem. I worry these cosplayers feel they wouldn't look pretty with hair that isn't straight. The reality is that you would have big, curly, pink, hair. I can barely think of anything more awesome and pretty, and society should be ashamed for making anyone think otherwise.

Sorry, I'm being a posting ho atm lol
But this isn't really a peeve of mine - I would just like to see more Pinkie's step it up. I would love to see a Pinkie with ferocious hair. I always interpreted her hair as super frizzy (Since it did frizz up when the first sonic rainboom happened). Her hair is styled like that ever since.
Something like this: http://arda-wigs.com/collections/nicki

Not having a good desk specifically for cosplay to work on things. I have a great amount of floor space for cutting fabric and such - but it kills my back to work there on basic things other than cutting. Though I also have the comfort of my bed - but minimal space means everything gets lost in my bedding or constantly drops on the floor! We have a large dining room table, but I'm only allowed to use my sewing machine on it, and nothing else - my Mom is worried I'd scratch the table >.>

So yeah, I'd like a nice desk for multi-tasking, something spacious, things won't get lost and get a nice comfy chair where my back doesn't make me feel old! But I don't have the room...

Damn.

This is why if I see something fairly rare, if I even remotely want or need it for something, I try to get it. This has happened far too often Dx

Also, if I see one more cosplayer cosplaying a male that has overdone makeup I might scream. I wear a lot of makeup, too, compared to my day-to-day..but a lot of this is just so many levels of ridiculous. She has to be the only person I've seen it on that I think does it with some class. Four fake eyelashes piled on top of one another (yes, I've seen someone recommend this in a tutorial) is probably NOT going to work unless you know EXACTLY what you're doing.

New peeve:

Jo-ann's.. They keep sending me e-mails. "AWESOME SALE AWESOME SALE
But here's the catch... IT'S WEB-EXCLUSIVE"

Jo-ann's. I don't want to buy something from you ONLINE and deal with shipping and all that when you have a store literally 5 minutes away from me.... THAT CARRIES THE EXACT SAME THINGS ALMOST EVERYTIME x.x;;
I just find it so pointless. They seem to be fishing to increase their online sales for some reason. I BARELY get anything about /in store/ coupons and deals through e-mail. That's why I gave it to them. It's really irritating

kittyandjam, you might want to check your account settings on what you receive via email, I know I had that issue at one point. Later, I specifically signed up through my JoAnns store to get fliers mailed to me that list what is actually going on in store (plus coupons).

Okay, I need to get this off my chest.

So there's this girl criticizing my cosplays, right? Especially my Maka cosplay. In fact, she started criticizing before I even got the costume. When I first posted the status "I ordered my Maka cosplay; so excited! " she comments "I was Maka first... :/". I replied telling her that was cool and stuff but she jsut keeps mentioning how she already cosplayed Maka so I just started to ignore it. So today I posted pictures of my costume and she's like "The wig isn't the right color, her hair is brown not blonde." Okay, FIRST of all, I WASN'T WEARING A WIG IN THE PICTURE. Second of all, Maka has gray-blonde hair, not brown hair. Just tossing that one out there. And after I POLITELY mention that (I didn't even make a big deal out of it, I just tagged it on to the end of my comment), she's like "No it's obviously brown." My friends call me a color Nazi. I am seriously technicaly when it comes to color (I practically cried when my sweatervest came in too bright of a yellow. XD).

I know I'm getting too worked up over this, but it just kills me that she's finding reasons to criticize me when her Maka cosplay was... well, now I'm the one drinking haterade, but it looked like a closet cosplay. I'm not going to go into detail or bag on her too much, but there were a lot of inaccuracies that looks like she didn't even try. I'm not trying to hate on her or her cosplay, as long as she has fun then that's cool, but seriously? Don't diss my cosplay when yours is missing half of the key components.

Just. Agh.

Oh hun I'm sorry =( Why can't people understand you CANNOT claim a cosplay. You do not own it, others are allowed to do it too, get over youself. Seriously this chick needs to get bent.
