You know you're a cosplayer when...

You sell your car and use the money to pay for costume supplies. :P

(Then of course I get distracted and start reading a couple... My mom comes in and sees me reading... she's given up the yelling, now she just says, "Just make sure it's done in time... *sigh*" lol :3)

YKYACW...

-You get post-con depression unless you're working on your next cosplay
-You cringe when you look at the wigs in a Halloween store
-You haven't posted a pic of yourself in "normal" clothes on facebook in months
-Your clothes are all over the floor because your closet is full of costumes

^guilty of all of these.

You Know You're a Cosplayer When...

the 'hobby room' your parents were so kind to let you use for cosplay has become your cosplay room, with brief mentions of other things no one can see beyond the fabric, costumes, wigs, sewing machine, and props.

When you buy a pattern with no intention of actually following it, but instead altering it to become the pattern for the costume you're working on (which looks vaguely like the picture on the front of the pattern)

I'm sure this has been said... but you know when you're a cosplayer when you're explaining all the little things you still need to do for your cosplay and when your friends/family ask why it needs to be perfect, all you can think is "THIS IS WHY YOU'RE NOT A COSPLAYER".

^So flipping true.

YKYACW.... The clothes at Goodwill are no longer pieces of clothing; they are cheap pieces of fabric you can cut up for your next cosplay.

Or you buy a pattern with every intention of following it, after which the inevitable 'this is so inaccurate, I'll just fix this part here, and put a lining in there, and it calls for a seam on the sleeves but I'm going to leave that off, what do you mean I need to pleat the collar? that's not accurate...' happens.

My Arwen dress in a nutshell xD
