I've found a new one....
Talking about having an idea for a costume (whether it be a cool prop or whatever), only to immediately be told "Oh, you don't HAVE to do it!"
Yeah, no, I'm not stupid and generally know any characters I have ideas for well enough to know such things aren't essential, and simply want to do it to do it. But thanks for pointing that out, or trying to discourage me or whatever.

Using a fabric marker thinking it was your wash out fabric marker but it turns out it was "fabric dye in a pen"....

This all over. That and I'm out of hot glue so I can't make any props without them being in pieces.

Yup. This is the same thing I'm going through. I just have a few details to work out on Gilgamesh but I'm like, "Nope! Let's just sit around and work on other cosplays, play video games and write fanfiction! "

Not being able to find pictures of yourself after a con. Come on, at least 30 people took pictures of me. That's like 10% of the convention attendance.

I want to solder the electronics of my prop but I have no place inside my house where it is safe to do so. I could do it outside, but my area is having a heatwave and is bone dry. I don't want to solder outside in those conditions because I am afraid I will accidently start a fire.

I feel you on this. My luck, there's a convention this weekend, my costume isn't shipping out until this Friday, and I'm not getting more money until next Wednesday. I don't know what the hell to wear the upcoming convention, but boy am I excited about the stuff I'm going to try afterwards and won't be able to wear until September at the earliest! :'D Yeah, kinda sucks. Georgia, stop having all your conventions in the summer, there is literally NO logic in that.

Peeve: Heat. I COULD wear a new costume this weekend, but it would put me at serious risk of having a heat stroke..Grumblegrumble. I normally wouldn't bat an eye (I've worn Kuro cosplays for the past two years, and a costume that involved leather the year before that) but it seems every year I get less and less immune to the heat, and even without having the jacket on that would have caused it to be searing hot last year, the AC went out and I started feeling faint until we moved to a restaurant to cool off..so I'm not feeling up to risking it. >.>

Getting cosplay motivation at the wrong time. -_-

I was in the middle of studying for the GREs and then my brain was all, "WORK ON COSPLAY RIGHT NOW! YOU KNOW YOU WANNA! " I ended up just giving in since I was getting no studying done.

Current one: I have four costumes to get done this summer and my boss goes "LOL WORK OVERTIME". Couldn't be helped since our 2nd shift guy just retired and someone has to recover until we find a replacement.

Still, all my >_<
