ahah I appreciate that! But I just personally would feel pretty silly cosplaying Basch. I'm a 5'2" twig of a girl, and while I do think cosplaying a tiny Basch would be hilariously fun, Vaan's outfit is more interesting to me. I think I'd have a lot of fun making it. Thanks though! I might put Basch down on a future plans list. ^^

Here's my peeve- Trying to get materials that I just can't find here in Halifax. I need a smallish piece of transparent light blue acrylic, and I'm having the worst time- sure, I've found some websites that sell it, but shipping costs a bloody fortune, even for a small piece.
So in order to justify the stupid-high shipping costs, I'll have to wait and make a larger order, ordering a bunch more stuff.

FuttomKitten and Ilafatyu: good luck on yours as well!
Glad you looked into it I'd actually love to see a Vaan cosplayer, I loved his outfit though it's been a while since I played the game.

I hate hate hate not being able to totally make my plans out for this year. I want to have everything set in stone, but I just Can't decide D': At least I have the backup plan of if I don't have anything else to do, just get another version of Ciel and I'll enjoy myself xD

Family members taking my sewing and embroidery stuff when I'm working on something.
No, I don't mind you using it.
But would it kill you to ask first before rummaging through my stuff.

Finding that perfect shoe to use as a base to build up your cosplay shoe.

Then seeing the price ($56)

*cries*


Edit:

An added bonus to my previous peeve:

When you finally do find decently priced shoes with approximately the same model, but they only come in red and yellow, instead of white.

Well I ended up being a couple months ahead on my cosplay plans for this year (I'm going to be finishing both my Fem!Castiel and another OC cosplay 3 months in advance) so looks like I'll be able to make Vaan my plan for May and June. The outfit seems pretty complicated and I'm going to have to make A LOT of armor, but I'm officially excited about it!

I hope you have some luck in figuring out the rest of your year as well!

Peeve of the Day: Bad Cosplay Tumblr blogs. They just make me very upset. And I could assume that most of the time they are run by non cosplayers as I just feel cospalyers should never bad mouth their fellow cosplayers. So the idea of that makes me upset even more at it. They just really get to me.

I couldn't agree more. Seriously, if you don't even cosplay yourself then how can you talk?

I had the same argument with someone claiming that cosplayers were the most hateful people in the nerd community. All while saying they're not a cosplayer, just an outside observer. If you're not a cosplayer yourself, how can you accurately make that assessment?

Exactly! I think we as cosplayers know what we have to through, and no one is ever perfect. People who never have cosplayer...shouldn't talk when they have never done it!

Cosplayers? Hatful? Over the years I have never met a mean cosplayer (Ok maybe one or two out of the like...hundreds!) But like I said before, if you haven't cospalyed, you don't deserve to talk smack. I just want to dare anyone who makes fun of cosplayers to just try it. See if they'll be saying the same stuff after.

When mistakes are made because of your own incompetence.
30 dollars of liquid latex and two full weekends right down the toilet because my dumb butt couldn't be arsed to do a few google searches to make sure it was accurate.
'Nah' I said 'I'll just follow this easy peasy tutorial video, surely they MUST know what they're talking about'.

Turns out they didn't. At all.

The most embarrassing part? I have an art book from the movie..I literally have a bunch of pictures in HD.. huge photos of what I'm making at my disposal.

Maybe one day I'll look back on this and laugh. Maybe.

There are so many responses to this topic that I couldn't read through them all, so if this pet peeve was mentioned already, then my apologies for the repetition. I think what irritates me the most is the misconception held by many people who believe cosplay is a strictly "Japanese thing" or that only anime, manga and game characters can be cosplayed. The absolute worst, however, are the idiots who actually believe that only Japanese people are the "best cosplayers" and no one from any other countries should even try. The truth is that wearing costumes to conventions was started in America as far back as the 1930's and it wasn't until the mid-1980's that it was introduced to Japan. Also, the inspiration for cosplay can come from just about anywhere...comics, movies, TV, books, music, etc...and certainly not only from Japan. As for those who think cosplay should only be attempted by one group of people on this planet, I hope one day they will get their heads out of their butts and educate themselves on the history of cosplay. Maybe then they would stop polluting the internet with their narrow-minded comments.

I can definitely sympathize with this peeve. Sometimes it's not easy to find the right materials no matter where you live!

Having people doubt you based on things they don't even know. I had a bunch of people laughing at me for wanting to sew a corset after sewing for such a short amount of time. >>
And it turned out fine.
Like shut up and get better yourself, don't scoff at people trying to stretch their abilities.
