When I am 3 days short of finishing my costume on time for the convention. Also, when fashion tape stops working and I constantly have to put on fresh tape.

When I'm sitting in the plane watching the bags getting unloaded. Then I see mine getting thrown, rolling a few times and then thrown again onto the little trailer thing. My costume is in that bag and everything else cosplay related.

When I screw up making my own cosplay.
When I find out AFTER completing a costume that my reference pic had the wrong shade.
Finishing a piece and THEN realizing I sewed the fabric in backwards.
Losing a pin, sticking it back in and sticking yourself with a different pin.
People who are not cosplaying saying they could do better.
People who are cosplaying saying they wish they weren't.
Finishing a costume and realizing it's crooked.

Finding a really good, fairly cheap prop online for a cosplay you plan to do..but it's a knife/razor and the description doesn't say what the blade is made of.
I don't want an ACTUAL knife, and it's the price of what I think a real one would be >.> So that's slightly irritating me.

Right now: cutting the fabric rectangles out ou need for a pair of pants...but suddenly your brain goes "LOL CU LATER" and you can't make a pair of pants for f###s sake. It's like you forgot EVERYTHING in an blink of an eye. Finally, you decide to buy a pattern so you can finish those damn pants..just to see...that your pants would be 4 inches too SHORT in theend. And because you already cut the fabric (which had the PERFECT color you ordered online) you have to buy NEW fabric now on a local store because you have to finish those damn pants for a championship in a few weeks .... not knowing if you'll find the RIGHT shade of the color (yes..this COUNTS in the championship. if the color is slightly off you get points taken off)...and on top of that don't even know if you can BUY the fabric because it's the end of the month, money is TIGHT and ordering online again isn't an option because they need 1-2 weeks to deliver AND charge you 20$ for delivery (WTF)

short:
-fabric which was around 40$ you can't do anything with now since you cut it out, waste of money
- need new fabric because of your stupidity
- wasting more money by buying new fabric
- near to a heartstroke because the time-pressure is now unbearable and you have to be finished in time
ARGH X______________X

This has really been bothering me lately, but I really hate going to the comments section of YouTube videos that revolve around cosplay. While there are usually nice comments there, there are those people that say stupid/rude things that just make me want to shake them. :I

But then again, that's almost in every comment section on YouTube, so...

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.

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.
