Take it! You never know when the discounts will be in handy!

You know you're a cosplayer when you seperate the holidays on what you could buy for costumes. (Halloween for makeup, Christmas/Holidays for trims, Easter for plastic eggs for jewels, etc)

- No one's suprised when you pack your sewing machine on family vacations and such. (Guilty...)

- You slice you hand on something while working on a costume and all you can think is 'I hope I didn't bleed on the fabric'

- Cosplay props and more wig heads have a higher priorty than the Wii (Or something else you've been waiting for for ages...) on your christmas list.

- You're making something for your sister's doll, but then you realize you could make your dog a costume with it instead! (Guilty... Trying to make my Doxie into an Akatsuki right now.... )

-You use the guest bedroom as a place to store your completed costumes and wigs, because your room is too full of In Progress stuff to keep it in there.

I WISH I could get away with that! XD In my dream home...

I'm guilty of all of the following:

~ You look at clothing and think "Now how can I alter this for this costume...?"

~ You constantly come up with new concepts for costumes

~ You coordinate cosplays with your friends, which usually ends up deciding who they'll cosplay as.

~ You insist that your significant other and yourself go as your favorite pairing OR as a male & female version of the same character

~ Most of your Christmas/Birthday wishlists consist of cosplay-related items

~ You spend time during class designing your next costume

~ You consider those that are very involved in the cosplaying world (i.e. those who always lead the photoshoots or organize dance-offs) to be celebrities

the range/oven at my house is really old and desperately needed redoing. The new one my parents chose has a built-in toaster oven type mini-oven as well as a full-size one, and they wanted to get rid of the toaster oven.

You know you're a cosplayer when you beg them to let you keep the toaster oven so that you can have a 100% not food thing to bake all your polymer clay and other things that may emit toxic gases in.

That's where I have to draw the line. XD I've reduced my Christmas list to nothing BUT the Wii and a couple games. And a Dremel. Because I could really use that Dremel.

You start wishing you had the powers of Tonks in Harry Potter so you could change your hair color and style at will to fit any character you wanted to cosplay.

I made an entire list of these for a friend, all true happenings... ::digs through the archives:: HA! GOT IT! Here's some of them:

-You've stopped answering to your real name at cons because "No one calls you that, anyway."

-The week before the con is known as "crunch week."

-Half of your closet space is dedicated to cosplay items.

-You want to collect wall scrolls and posters from everything you've cosplayed.

-You HAVE a wall scroll from everything you've cosplayed.

-You know what a wall scroll IS.

Tahat's my mini-list. XDD For now.
