When garments come out too big.
I'm in the process of making a quilted vest, and since I have borderline measurements, I went a size up.

It's HUGE on me. Fortunately, it can be taken in, but that's yet another step I have to make time for. :/

Pet Peeve of the Day: Zippers and them doing weird things
It depends on how "perfect" you want the zippers to be. Some people have had luck replacing individual zipper teeth or putting something in their place. And if the other one is not missing teeth, you might just need to sew some thread thickly at the top of the zipper (like a loop) so that it can't just keep going !

I think I'd lean toward replacing the one with missing teeth and trying to fix the one that is otherwise okay and just needs something to stop it from running off.

I've had this problem before, actually. It was my mother and a pair of boots I was working on. Drove me crazy because I didn't have enough time before the convention to fix it up. I ended up having to go with other shoes for Drossel, so I was on high heels and flopping around the whole time. Had to get carried down some stairs at one point because I wasn't looking forward to falling down them again.

I guess it made me walk in a stilted, stiff fashion like a doll, anyway. xD

yeah...and then she bitched at me for getting the wrong lining...like i'm sorry if I can't tell the difference.... and then she said I suck at sewing and would never learn.....which made me lose all confidence in myself over sewing what so ever....

Kelley: I think I wasn't clear enough and I apologize, what I mean is the zipper separates after I zip it up as in it stops where its supposed to but then when I bend down...or move the zipper that I zipped up comes open where its closed....does this make sense or should I clarify more?

Yes, that is what I thought you meant. You can sew enough bulk to prevent it from doing that. If the words are not clear, there should be pictures or video!

Companies putting out patterns perfect for your character after you've made it. McCall's put out a Merida pattern for Halloween this year. I so could have used it last year.

THIS. I cosplay Rikku (FFX-2) in her Thief outfit, which, for those of you who don't know, consists of a bikini top, a super short skirt, sleeves, and a scarf. I've been lucky not to receive any disgusting misogynistic comments on the pictures cosplay photographers put up, but I've seen things like that happen and I constantly worry that that'll happen on one of my pictures and my friends and family will see me being degraded like that.

People who get all pissy about you being in their way because some aspect of your costume is a bit big. I was wearing a skirt that had a hoop skirt this Otakon. In the hallway a guy asked for my picture. As I was trying to back up against the wall to get OUT of the way, a girl smacked her lips and brushed in front of me quickly. I yelled out to her "sorry" twice. Really, just like on the road, you're not above anyone. I get that it's annoying when someone causes a back-up because they stop dead in the middle of the hall. Believe me, I do. I get angry. However throwing tantrum is ridiculous.

They've had that for about a month now. BTW McCall's patterns are 70c each at JoAnn's until Saturday. Just be sure the patterns you get are on sale. Aug 22-24 has Butterick patterns for $5 for 5.

I made a Merida cosplay a YEAR AGO. So this pattern doesn't help me now. That's why it's a pet peeve.

Well, if you need any other patterns, you know where to go! That sucks though. I gotta figure out what materials and patterns to make a Gi for Goku (Dragon Ball Z).

When one thing ruins a really good picture.

My friend took this really nice picture of my Camellia Gumi cosplay from her phone(I was surprised by how nice the picture came out) but I have my camera slung over my shoulder in the pic. >_< If that was not there it would have been perfect. GAHHHHH.

Peeve:

When you're selling something and the person doesn't reply despite being on. ; v ; I don't want to end up selling the item to some one else because they never got back to me in time, yet even though i've sent 2 messages they haven't replied back. Oh what to do

If you have another buyer, sell it to them - until you agree to the purchase, you haven't bought the item and someone else can snatch it right from under you. It'll be a good lesson to take responsibility for your own actions.

Which brings me to my own cosplay pet peeve: when you wear a wonderbra and a very low cut top, don't come crying that people are looking at your breasts. Of course they are, you're practically pushing them in their faces and poking their eyes out with them! And the actual character doesn't even show any significant cleavage!

Okay, the actual pet peeve is that my sister always gets more attention with her cosplay than I do, but the above thing DOES NOT HELP! T_T

My pet peeve: People tend to not go harsh on flat cosplayers who cosplay busty characters ("Hey, it's a great cosplay, she doesn't have to be busty to cosplay Orihime!!!") but when a busty cosplayer cosplays flat character... Exactly opposite. ("RORORORO ATTENTION WHORE!!1")

I'm busty but I always love flat lolis T_T
