This times 100. I really need to get on the ball! I've got a heavy class load this coming semester so I'll only be able to work on cosplays rarely. Plus I work the most at my job x_X so that'll eat into time as well.

YES. Though with me, it's more due to always ordering costumes, so often during the wait times, I'll get my eye on different costumes because of waiting. P:

Right now, I've got two..
Wanting to get a costume more suited for summer when you won't have it in time for any summer cons..and wanting to get a costume for the winter when there aren't anymore winter cons coming up.
And wanting to impulse buy ALL THE WIGS but knowing you will instantly regret ALL OF THESE PURCHASES. ;n; Goddammit, Aoba and Kuroko, stop having pretty wigs--

My narrow shoulders. It can get annoying anytime but right now I keep finding photos of my Card Captor Sakura cosplay with my bra strap showing because my sleeves kept slipping.

That's why I always pin my costumes to whatever undergarments I wear. I don't want my binder straps to show.

I do plan to take the shoulders on that dress in but I often have trouble with my bra straps slipping, no matter how tight I adjust them.

When you find the fabric in the perfect color and texture and it's almost $20 a yard! Such a sad day :/

Pet Peeve: I absolutely hate the fact that in person my cosplays are constantly compared to mainlanders cosplays.

I tend to be the 'only off' with my cosplays on the island and I know there are others who are WAY better then me online and in mainland USA. I try to do my own personal best with most of my cosplays and when people complain that I don't look as well as someone on the mainland it bugs the crap out of me. I'm a bit like 'Sorry, maybe you should just go kidnap that person to cosplay such and such for you' or 'Maybe you should fucking move to the mainland if they look so much more better.' Which makes me seem like a bitch but it grates on my nerves so much. Really the main difference is experience, time, and money in these situations and there ISN'T much I can do about it. Fabric and materials are quite a bit more expensive to get. Experience is something I'm working on and my time is limited by my job and college.

So I'm just a bit fustrated at the lack of anything I can do about it, which is probably the true pet peeve here....

I have to say, fandom stigma is really annoying me, as in, people despising a fandom to ridiculous extents simply because of word of mouth and misconceptions. It happened with Hetalia, but I saw the 'bad side' of the fandom firsthand. But it is absolutely ridiculous that I have reason to be afraid of posting about wanting to cosplay Homestuck because of the stigma attached to it. It looks like it'd be a blast! I saw my friend completely happy, socializing and enjoying herself and making so many friends, where I..wasn't. Because there's a smaller fandom for black butler and the members were pretty divided and there was some drama going on that I didn't want to place myself in. So please don't make the freaking comment that you've lost me to the fandom or that you despise me for it. I have my own reasons, just like you have yours for your costumes. -.-

I'm think that being stuck on this rock has made a lot of Hawaii cosplayers crazy. -_- though a lot of us are really nice but there are a lot of backhanded comments. I'm lucky i look more asian then white really or i'd have to deal with rasist comments more here. (Euro-americans tend to be...discriminated against here. Admitted i haven't herad that many within the cosplay community here but con community has a lot more. )

Gender bends are my biggest pet peeve. Closet cosplays. People who would rather do five cheap and half-assed cosplays than save up and get/make a nice one.

Sort of annoyed by OC characters when the people doing them expect you to care.

When people present their ridiculous crossover cosplays like they are an actual thing from an episode/chapter.

Lolita and steam punk versions of things.

When people use their real hair instead if a wig (guilty, though, haha).

Similarly, it drives me batty when I get one part of my costume in an admittedly weird shade that looks like it could work... if I could actually find a matching fabric color for it. >C

I made the mistake of buying a red-orange pair of underoos for my costume instead of an additional red one and I'm not really sure what to do with it because it seems next to impossible that I'll find anything in a brick and mortar store that matches the shade well enough.

This is off topic, but I had to laugh at "rock" and "mainlanders" -- My family is from Newfoundland (Canada) and those are the same terms we use.
