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.

Agh, I know! @_@ She's acting like she freakin' owns the character or something! @_@ I don't mean to be a bitch, but in all honesty, her cosplay really just.... I could name a lot of things about it, but that would be meaaaaan so I won't.

Long story short, I actually had to be like "Can we seriously not argue about an anime character's hair color? If you want to get as technical about it, it is a mixture of vanilla and ecru." I just don't get why she's all on my case. We're not even friends. I met her once at an anime convention and yet it's apparently offensive to even think of cosplaying the same character as her.... seriously? I usually don't let things like that bug me, but because of my illness I'm crabbier than usual. >>;;;

Peeve: cosplay motivation coming right before vacation.

This happened before, when I was going to NYC with my family. I was about 80% done with Hartia's coat but I had to go on the trip so I couldn't bring it with me to work on.

Now it's happening again. I leave for the beach on Friday and I really want to work on my snake Ayame plushie for my Hatori cosplay. I'd seriously consider bringing it with me if I had the money or the time to go buy the materials before my trip. Oh well, my friends and I will hang out sometime next week, I can get started then :/

I think you can claim a cosplay if it's your original design. :P

But in her case, that girl is really unreasonable. For sure there are more cosplayers of the character, too, and it's not her own character in any way.
