Which of course means that the Old Spice Guy is totally fine. I hate this type of sexism. Women are judged so harshly for showing a little leg while men wearing a towel and flip-flops are loved. I do personally know a guy who does the Old Spice Guy and the worst that's ever happened to him is the con asking him to put on a shirt. He put on a tank top but the next year at the same con they let him go shirtless.

I agree in general that the double-standard is both frustrating ang wrong (in my opinion), but there is a huge difference between a guy being shirtless and a girl being shirtless. XD Granted, I do hope the towel rule applied to both men and women....though it probably didn't. ._.

Rare make up colors. For Aradia, I need red lipstick, eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara. And apparently NO ONE makes that color! I'm even having a hard time finding red mascara/eyeliner/eyeshadow online, especially eyeliner. And when I do find one, it's usually 20 dollars. Like, no thanks. I'd rather keep searching than spend $20 on eyeliner.

Red Eyeliner
^That is $4.50 + Free Shipping. :3

Red Eyeshadow
^$7 + Free Shipping. Not sure what shade of red you're looking for, but that's a basic one. XD With a decent primer, Nyx eyeshadows are fairly good.

As for the mascara...I found an Auburn one, but including shipping it was like $20. ^^;;;

EDIT:// You could buy some cheap red false lashes maybe?

I think I might go with the false eyelashes, red mascara is WAY to hard to find, and what I did find is expensive and wont get here in time.

And I can't find any false red eyelashes either! UGH.

EDIT: Okay, after seeing other people and how they did her make-up, I think I'll just go with black mascara, but exaggerate the red on the outside of the eyes. I think it'll look good!

People who don't take running a panel seriously.

It takes a LOT of work to run a panel, especially one with 30+ participants. You can't just sign up and be done with it until con time, these things need planning.

I am very frustrated right meow. ._.

Hmph. After going to a big con and having virtually no pictures taken (I never hung around where people were taking pictures and had to leave before the photoshoot, though; I blame myself)
Getting jealous of all my friends putting up these AMAZING pictures of each other.
And I'm just over here trying to furiously plan my new costume until that flood subsides to keep myself from one of those 'never-wanna-cosplay-again' moods.
I had really expected more pictures from this, but..I guess not? This isn't the first time it has happened, it's starting to have an effect on my self esteem. Oi. So not getting a lot of pictures taken of a costume I think deserves them.

Another thing, having a week off, but since my parents have to work I can't go do anything for Gumi. All I need is to find a leather vest and a green scarf. All I need is to go to a thrift store and then work out whether I want to make a megaphone or flag. But nobody's here to take me ;-;

And on the whore statement, I use the term 'whore' simply so I don't have to say 'She looks like a scantily clad woman!' - It's the mental image that you get in your head when you think of the word 'whore', not the literal meaning. Plus, using the term 'looks like' in front of it should mean I don't factor personality in it: looks and maybe a few mannerisms.
Maybe I could use some better wording, but that is the easiest way for me to put it. Besides, I don't go up to someone's face and tell them they look like a whore, if I did, I would put it in a kinder way. (Usually I have to explain something like this when talking to someone else at the con at or after the con if they start griping and name-calling, nothing more.)

Ah.. That word still has a really bad connotation. Because, it's an insult really.
And just because a word is shorter, doesn't mean you should use it. That's almost like saying "I don't say "black person" or "african american" because it's too long of a word. I use the N-word instead." No. No one should do that lol.

But anyway. "Skimpy" is another word you can use instead of scantily clad or a whore. For example: "Look at that skimpy outfit." Go ahead and say that.. Because that doesn't say much other than plain observation. But if someone catches you calling them a whore (even not to their face) that's going to RUIN their day. I've actually seen quite a few stories on Coscom about something like that. And some people might get the wrong impression of you if they're talking to you and you start calling people whores for what they're wearing.

Just, you know, letting you know.

My pet peeve of right now is foot injuries, especially when I really don't need it. I'll be seeing a doctor later today to get it all checked out but last time this happened I ended up in a cast for a month.

HEXXP is this month in like 2-3 weeks! T_T I was planning on entering WCS at HEXXP but I don't think I can do the skit if I have a cast on my foot. Don't even know if I can staff at HEXXP if I have a cast. Also, I can't use the foot petal on my sewing machine with my other foot without twitching so I can't sew right now ether.

Finding the most rediculously perfect item of clothing for your cosplay, only for your dreams to be shattered because "Online shopping is not currently offered in your market." I'm looking at you, H&M...

Friends being overly possessive of cosplay characters. There's one series my friends and I were going to cosplay. They're all cosplaying like 2-3 characters each from it, and I only really wanted to be one pretty minor character. My friend felt bad though that I wasn't any of the main people, and asked if I wanted to be anyone else, and I asked if I could be this one guy.

Apparently our other friend called dibs on that guy forever ago, he just didn't tell me he'd done so until I expressed interest in cosplaying this character (he's already claimed 3 other people from this series, so I kinda feel like he doesn't need 4 when I only have 1 minor one) and I doubt he's ever going to actually cosplay this guy anyway, whereas I actually would. I ranted to my mom and she said I should just go for it, since he doesn't own the character but I feel like if I do, it'll come back to bite me in the butt DX

Joann's really slow shipping methods is one of mine right now. @_@ Also the sheer unavailability of silk thread for whatever reason. I do need to concentrate on getting the Messiah refitted by Halloween so I can wear it, but it's still unbelievably annoying that I have to wait an estimated ten days to stitch back up my red furisode nagajuban.

This. This happens all the time in our role play groups at school (which doesn't matter as much, but still annoys me.) It's always me and one girl a grade below me, too Dx Two related peeves:
-Being put off from cosplaying a character because another friend does it better. I adore the character, but this is basically the only character this person cosplays, and while I know I would probably look better, they have an awesome partner that they do all kinds of poses and such with...while I'm completely alone. I would be honestly surprised if I felt good while cosplaying him because of that.
-People being treated as objects because of cosplay. One of my friends is apparently being stalked because someone wants 'their yaoi partner' back. You would have their info if they're close enough to call them yours. Maybe instead of trying to have her like a prize, try to be friends with her? Just a thought.

Had anyone else ever had that one friend who refuse to listen to any criticism?
I'm not even talking about criticizing her looks or body, I'm talking about things like make up and photography.

I had this one friend who is a lot younger than me and only recently started cosplaying.
She went for a causal cafe themed Hetalia shoot and the photographer was a friend of her's who had very few experience with cosplay photography.
When she asked me to comment on her cosplay, I told her very honestly that a more experienced photographer would be able to provide better pictures.
After hearing that she became really mad and asked me why would an experienced photographer be better.
I gave her reasons like, a more experienced photographer would know where to place the subjects and knows what background would appear better.
They would take note of the lighting and mood of the photos.
I swear I was giving her honest and sincere advice.
But after I said the above, she started raging at me and told me her definition of a photoshoot is different and she prefers it to be carefree, and she insist that her friend's photography was good.(Which really isn't, the white balance was off and they all appeared orange, also the focus was completely off, I know cause I studied photography in school)

The ironic thing was that after a huge event, a rather experienced photographer took a few of her photos, which looked pretty nice, then just the day after I saw her facebook profile picture changed to the photos the experienced photographer took.

Yup, this is annoying. There's a certain Rin(Vocaloid) cosplay I want to do(Adults Toy) but my friend is our Rin so I'm hesitant because I mentioned it once in the past and she said she was our Rin and such. I haven't brought it up again since but I still want to do that cosplay...
