^Completely agree!

Slight Peeve:

Just happened yesterday. My friend, her mother, my sister and i were in the dinning room. she was saying how she was sad that one of our friends was planning to cosplay the same character as her.

Her mom goes: well yours will better cause it's homemade. my sister asks: oh she buys hers?" Me: no she makes hers as well i believe. The mother : well it's not made by me. friend: yeah mine will be better. I tried to say that they should be happy to see more people, but got cut off by more conversation.

I wasn't exactly upset, but i thought it was a little rude to just down the other person to make someone else feel better. Why not say that both will be good and they should be happy to see more people cosplay who they love? I'll never understand why they need to feel jealous or in a competition with some just cause they cosplay the same person. I'm there to have fun, if i seem someone else as the same character as me, i'm happy.

I've put on my shoes, coat, and gotten ready to go to the fabric store two days in a row, but have then been prevented from going. X_X

I don't understand why people get defensive over other people cosplaying the same character as them. I love doppelgangers. The resulting pictures are awesome.

How my brain right now is ignoring the cosplay stuff I need to get done for this con season and is instead making me think of working on stuff for next year.

Shhh brain. I will be getting to Viola next year. Stop making me look at her design and stuff now and make me want to work on her.


And I also don't understand this possessiveness of characters. I mean, I could understand if you were doing a group cosplay with a bunch of people and you wanted all of the characters but if you aren't, then that's just stupid. -_- I also love getting pictures with people cosplaying the same thing as me. It rarely happens since I cosplay lesser known characters but when I'm Morgiana I'm going to be getting pictures with every Morgiana I see because that would be awesome.

I would love to meet doppelgangers in cosplay. It would be absolutely hilarious, especially if the characters were from series with parallel universes. I don't get the possessiveness.

Doppergangers are awesome.

Copycats are not. This one girl is getting on my nerves because she copies the characters i cosplay then complains to me about not getting enough attention. I'm like well... I pick cosplays for my bodytype and skills....not yours, so please stop copying me and do your own thing.

Getting cocky about getting something done (especially for the first time) and not allowing myself time for errors. Always so close to a con. Why do I never learn?

Related, getting CALLED a copycat.
A girl I didn't even know messaged me before asking me to stop cosplaying/liking the same things as her.
Really? I tend to cosplay fairly popular characters, and the things I like are my own business. ._. That's just being really defensive and possessive.

I feel this one. "Nah, Grell's chainsaw'll be easy! I've already done it once, I can do it again!"
Nope.
Painting is really freaking annoying, and only because of having to do layers. I need better brushes before I can do anything OTL

Kind of odd that someone you don't even know is watching you closely enough to make that complaint.

That is kinda creepy. ._.

When you throw out something and then realize it could have been used for cosplay later.

I had a pair of old sandals with the perfect wedge heels for Viola and since they were so old I wouldn't mind destroying them(and comfortable). But of course I threw them out. -_-

Realizing all the stuff I planned to fix up... had to be washed first. By hand. And hung to dry. Oi. That set me back a few hours. (More like an entire day. But I had something to work on for today at least.)

Not too creepy to me, personally- it takes a lot to creep me out when I have an account strictly for cosplay.

Peeve- as soon as I put my mind wholly to a cosplay to do, everything else decides to distract me from it. :| No. It WILL be Undertaker that I do. Calm the hell down and wait your turns, Fushimi and Grell.

Like a minor thing that bothers me personally is when people/companies make schoolgirl type skirts really long.
It's such a small thing I guess, but it just irks me to see because I feel like that can really mess up the way a costume looks overall. When you make a skirt longer without adjusting the hip-waist fit, it makes your legs look incredibly short. It just really needs to be tapered differently idk

When I used to buy costumes I had a skirt sent to me that was like that, and I got so mad haha

Sudden minor peeve: Not knowing any attractive poses when you are asked for your picture. I should probably think of like a signature pose for my cosplays or something, FAE is in a month.

Wow, that sucks. I hope you got the situation taken cared of. I don't think it was defensive or possessive of me to think of her this way when I do tend to cosplay non-mainstream or the weird character no one else will for a group. My group has been more defensive about it then me because they like me cosplaying the character instead of me going why don't you let her be such and such so I can cosplay someone else? O.o then dramu and I'm like er...doesn't help the person in question complains TO ME about it.

Conventions not getting back to me or well congoers in general. Oni-con hasn't put out when and where their convention will be and Kawaii Kon hasn't gotten back to the panelist yet, nor has said when they will reopen artest ally.
