Wanting to work on a project but you can't because you're about to go on a trip. As excited as I am to go to Maui, part of me wants the trip over with so I can get back to work.

...this one is really stupid and I really hope I'm not the only one. But.

If your cosplay has a tie...tie it correctly. Please? There are tutorials everywhere. It really bugs me when little things like that aren't done...:/

When you order boots online and there is a stupid sticker that will not come off, on the side of it.

Really? You had to stick a sticker on there? Why.

I realized my brand new schmancy long black coat could work for a cosplay of on my my favorite anime characters...except my friend is the one in the group who cosplays him, and I don't think she'd be too pleased if I tried to DX

My trick for tying ties: yelling "Dad! Tie this for me!"

People replying to a post about me needing characters for a Homestuck panel at a specific convention with, "Ew, Homestuck. This is an anime convention, get your nasty blue bucket-spitters out."

Just. What.

Granted, someone reported it and he was banned from the forum but wow.

Things getting stuck in customs. T_T I was so psyched that I would get my bracelets today. Now I'm just praying they get here before Wednesday.

Having to redo parts of a costume you already 'finished'.

I did a rush job to complete my Young Justice Robin cosplay for Halloween, knowing I'd have to go back and redo some of the quick fixes, but now that it's Christmas break, all I want to do is start on a new one rather than bother with that one!

When someone has all the parts of a cosplay....

Except for the face. Your face is important too!
And guys need to realize that if they want to crossplay, they're going to have to suck it up and put on some makeup. >__<

Everywhere being out of styrofoam rolls. Only place I found them is online and they cost more to ship then to actually buy them, so its not something I want to do. However, I can't find them in person because all the craft stores here are out. (WHY!?!) So...
i might just try and find a different way to do this.

Peeve:

when younger cosplayer friends feel the need claim or state who you can or can't cosplay because in their other groups of friends they claim your said character you plan to cosplay as their friend and thus no one can cosplay their character. Welp! already had that conversation and stand by the fact that regardless, i cosplay who i want, when i want and don't care about your little thing going on. phew! had to get that off meh chest.

Also another peeve, when at a con hearing people have mini conversational hissy fits about another cosplayer's costume. Like whether they missed something, lacked a wig, better makeup and etc. Granted personally i strive to have all things in my cosplay, but that person and what they did is not of my concern and why let it bother you in some "high degree". Point is they really wanted to cosplay, what right do i have to judge them. It makes the outfit better and yes i honestly understand, but the point still comes to fact that they really want to at least do something for the character they love. I'm still taking pictures regardless.

It's not like any of us are getting paid for this...it's a hobby. And i personally don't think that because someones costume didn't cost 200+ that it should be looked at as ugly or stupid or compared to someone elses costume PERIOD

also hate the fact that ethinicity is still a big debate and people want cosplayers to look like the character. I am african-american so it hits deeply when my friends and i work hard on costumes only to be overlooked.
Agree to everything! Ethnicity is still a problem to some. They think that you must be really pale and cute asian looking (Which i'm not. I'm tan and from China) And when I go to the conventions, they see me as this cute cosplayer only tan and they have that (Tan? That character isn't tan!)

That reminds me of SCA how they get all insane about historical accuracy. I didn't do that stuff or cosplay for accuracy. I do it because I like to do it and these historical "Nazis" can stick their accuracy up their butt-holes. Every time some person gets a major in history they get all narcissistic about that stuff. I mean my god man we are here to have fun not actually live the era. If we were to live the era we would all be muddy dirty things not like on tv where they show these clean well kept fancy hair styled nobles lol

Please don't lump everyone in the SCA into the "historinazi" category. Not all of us in the group are like that. Hell, its more of a minority that are like that, its just unfortunate that they're also a very loud an vocal minority.

anyway, a current peeve of mine is sewing supplies disappearing right when you need them most. I could have this skirt finished by now if I could just figure out where the zipper went.
