I have too. I'm going more with the manga version than the anime, better references that way too. xD

I think she was a character from Witchblade but I am not familiar with the series so i could be wrong. Anyway, some other girl walked by, scoffed, and said something along the lines of, "Look there's that slut again." I mean come on, seriously? How rude! Luckily the cosplayer wasn't in hearing range and the friend I was with called the girl out on her rude remark.
I'm not sure how many women at Wondercon were dressed as Sara Pezzini from The Witchblade, but I did see a pic of a girl (maybe it's the same chick?) with the costume you described and I thought it looked amazing too. I love that series. That is one of the things I'm really nervous about since my character's costume is a little revealing as well. I'm not nervous so much as for myself, but my husband will be with me while I'm in costume at an upcoming convention and I don't want him to get upset with how harsh some people can be.

Motivated to do cosplay when I don't have time then unmotivated when I do have time.

Okay well...a couple of more peeves.....

It's so difficult to try to achieve that movie/more realistic accuracy, even when you look a little like who you're trying to cosplay.

And....it drives me crazy when I end up connecting to a character from something I'd ordinarily never even give a second glance. That's right, I'm looking at you Madoka Magica. You and all your frilly pink girly-ness. I hate pink.

Madoka genderbends are pretty popular, so you could find one of those that you like and do it instead. o.o

My peeve..rowdy cousins that can't keep their mitts off my cosplay stuff >x< I get they're young and all (6 and 9, from what I remember), but I've told them on multiple occasions that they DO NOT touch my wigs or costumes unless I give them permission or help them. My Ririchiyo wig is even more tangled from being pulled at and he nearly took the curls out of my femCiel wig from tugging at it so much.
Also, my stupid self being too embarrassed to do makeup tests. I have some things that I could use to practice doing Undertaker's scar by drawing until I can get modeling wax, but I know my family will laugh at me if I try it out while they're home. OTL

I can't stand genderbends, they drive me insane....so...nope. I'll suck it up and deal with it eventually....or never at all, lol.

I don't know if this is a peeve or not but I absolutely hate having to go back and watch things I've cosplayed from.....I end up seeing things I did wrong or missed.

I feel the same way. I usually wait until my mom isn't home before I do makeup tests(my sisters I'm okay with). It was really awkward one time after I did a makeup test(for Gumi and Saber), my mom came home and asked me why I had goth makeup on. -_- Apparently I was able to get the shadow off without trouble but a little bit of the thick black eyeliner was still there.

THROW HIM DOWN THE STAIRS. I mean what? Never said that.

He's probably just doing it because it makes you upset. Kids do that all the time and it drives me crazy because there's nothing you can do about it but lock the door and hide the evidence when they come over.

I use it to wrap my wig in before I put it in a ziploc bag when I'm putting it away

^Usually those are just hair nets to keep the wig a bit neater. If it's not really snug on your head, it's not a wig cap.

Yup. I remember the first time I got teal eyeshadow and attempted to do Miku brows, I spent forever trying to get it off so they wouldn't see it.
They mean well and never say anything too harsh, but sometimes they just tease too much and it makes me earnestly despise doing stuff like this when they're around.
Though my grandmother is going out later this week so I may do it then.

Pffft. He does do stuff just to annoy me, but then he'll come right back around being the sweetest kid. It annoys me to no end but I also couldn't stand to hurt him. I mostly just yelled at him since he was stuck sleeping on a mattress in my room. OTL
It's annoying but as long as they don't damage them beyond repair I try not to be TOO harsh on them.

If the wig was "wrapped" in it (can't think of a better term), no. If not, yes. c:

I bought this Clinque eye makeup remover its not grease and it removes stuff like that like a dream. It's kinda pricey but you don't need to use much for it to work so it can last for years. Link

Does it look like this? Because if it does it's a wig cap. Just a net one. ^^

Peeve: Wanting go fabric shopping and material shopping and yet your check has yet to arrive.

*cries* I have about 2-4 weeks of payment i'm still waiting for because of a mixup with my job and payment account. Apparently instead of being deposited on the debit card we recieve, they will be mailed. I've been wanting to go buy the remainder of fabric for the POTC, my gijinka, and now thinking about fabric for Scheherazade. Sadly i can't do that until my check arrive, whenever that will. ( ; ^; ) I'm sad.
