While on the sale subject....

-You search through old newspapers, looking for mentions of sales at Joann's/Walmart/etc... and flip, just to find out it's just past like the day before. (I'm considering doing that, since Michael's does it, why not Joann's?)
-While looking for fabrics, your mom's/dad's best friend that is down visiting has asked if they could search the fabric stores from where they flew from and send down the fabric when they find it. (This just happened and since Joann's just ran out of the brocade I need, and I have no idea what the id number is, I'm highly considering this...)

~You put off doing your homework because you are in the middle of working on your costume and you don't want to break your concentration.

~Your purse has a measuring tape, super glue, and straight pins in it all time, you never know when you might need them.

~Your "room" no longer has room for your costumes, supplies, and tools, and you start to take over other parts of the house (hall closet ^^ to house your cosplay stuffs.

- You -know- about a 50% off fabric sale 2 months in advance (XD)

- Your costumes have a bad habbit of exploding over the living room which has partially been turned into your sewing room

That's happened with me, only with anime dvds and manga, not cosplay yet. XD

-You have a specific room known as the "cosplay room" where you can barley walk in and NOT have somethin' come falling at you. (True xD All my cosplay stuff is thrown in one room and I think its just about time to clean it out again)

omg, all those totally apply to me! XD during school I'll sometimes talk about crossplaying w/ my friends and they're like "okay, yea...you can go be a boy away from us, kay?" lol

~you know you're a cosplayer when...
you find random peices of wood at your friend's dad's house and figure out what kinda of weapon you can make
~ when riding around your town you take note of good places to cosplay
~ it doesn't even bother you any more that people at the mall are staring at you because you're wearing cat ears. you've almost forgotten you're wearing them!
~while in a stores, you find pieces of jewelry, clothes or shoes that would be perfect for a cosplay that you'll never do...even though you promised yourself

When you hear your friends say that they want to cosplay a boy and only you think it's a great idea and you encourage them. My friends were horrified when my friend decided she wanted to cosplay L from Death Note. They had these priceless reactions and I said, "OOOOh! I'll dress as a boy with you!" My friends were like O_O!!!

~You recently notice the cute bracelet your 6 year old cousin gave you for christmas is perfect for the beads hanging in Yunas hair and run in to the bathroom to find a way to put it on.
~You try to convince your parents to buy you your b-day present 3 months early becasue you want a dress from and you need it before your birthday because of a convention.
~When your mom gets so sick of a costume she uses the phrase "it looks to short your not alowed to wear it anymore" so she doesnt have to see it, you then proceed to remake the costume, longer this time so she cant complain.

YKYACW...

- You think "Crap, that will take me [insert big number] hours to do..." and then resolve not to go to sleep until you're done.

- You finish it before you fall asleep

- You see a character, and your first thought process is "S/He is hot... I'd totally love to cosplay him/her." And then for the rest of their screentime, you pick apart their costume to judge it's difficulty and do-ability.

- You don't care that said character makes a whole minute of an appearance in one episode of a relatively obscure anime. (If anyone knows Benten from Kamichu, you will be my new best friend.)

- You learned to put on makeup solely for cosplay.

You know you're a cosplayer when a friend is trying to draw fanart of a character you're cosplaying as, and is using your costume notes instead of official art for reference, as the notes give a complete breakdown of the outfit. X3 (Ever so very guilty)

You're on at 2am...

The world could be coming to an end and you'd still be more afraid that you're going to mess up your wig if you try to style it.
