I was slightly worried about being called racist because I pointed out bit of a double standard.
I just think that if people say that one can cosplay whoever one likes without regarding race that this should go for everyone then.
True equal rights only come if you don't discriminate or put anyone on a pedestral, I think.
^THIS! and dont worry you weren't being racist at all, it truly is a double standard -_- I agree with you completely!

Okay. Another peeve.
I have quite a few beginner cosplayer friends. Most of them have honestly never cosplayed before, to be honest, and since I'm the more "experienced" (using that term loosely) of them, they come to me for suggestions and advice.
So I give them a little list of cosplays that they could maybe do, keeping their skill level in mind, of course. And hell, I even consider if they would need a wig or not. Just because I try to be nice.
But then they go and say "oh, that's too hard."
Um. No. It's within your skill level and you could easily alter clothes in your closet to produce a decent product.
tl;dr I hate it when people ask for suggestions but refuse to actually try to do those suggestions.

Just thought of another one since it's happening to me right now. I can't find a good place to use aerosol glue or paint! I used to have access to a spacious warehouse, but not anymore and my garage is full at the moment. Can't do it outside either since I have neighbors on both sides and I don’t want that stuff flying all over the place. Sucks!

Taking a trip to the store and forgetting to pick up certain items. I just went to Joann and I forgot to get a frog closure, which is the only thing I need to finish Ciel's shirt. Oh well, I'll just get it next time.

I know that this one has been said before, but inaccurate references are the worst.
Yana's usually pretty good about keeping up consistency across everything, but god, Undertaker's pendants have shown up 3-4 different ways now. D: In the anime they're shown to be all the same or just silver circles, in the reference sheet they're shown to be made a specific way, in detailed pictures they're totally different..
I'm going to put it up as her figuring out what she wanted to do with them gradually, but it's still annoying when trying to find references for these things if I'm gonna make them.

I hate when I plan/figure out all my stuff at night when everything is closed, then have to wait until the next day to do my shopping.

Grr, inconsistent references! I'll second this frustration. I pulled a number of references for Ja'far's headpiece and none of them look the same. You'll probably just have to end up doing what I did and pick one to stick with. Fewer headaches that way.

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.
