the deciding factor of whether to do a cosplay is that you won't have to buy a new wig for it.

....or is that more of a You Know You're a Cosplayer On a Budget When...

...When you raid that bag of old clothes in the hallway because you're too broke to afford fabric.

When you're friends and family know to give you money as gifts (like for your birthday or Christmas) because you'll use that money to buy things to make cosplay.

Don't deliberately hurt yourself! Get a compression vest, which is much safer than most other binding methods.

YKYACW you have costumes planned out for your next four conventions, and have more new outfits available than days to wear them.

YKYACW...you have to organize your cosplays according to the age of the character and your age other wise you'll never get to play all the ones you want.

YKYACW a friend texts you asking, "What are you doing?"

And you answer, "Making a sword."

As it turned out, he was painting a gun for a steampunk costume. Ha.

You Know You're a Cosplayer When you're meeting your friend's family, and the first thing you say to them is, "My hair's not normally white."

You go to Home Depot, not to fix up your house, but to look for things you can use to make random stuff like chest plates and armor.

Or when you're torn between cosplaying and doing what you did for LotR, because being able to tell people, "Nope, I didn't dress up, I always wear a cloak in winter!" (and to mean it) gets some pretty awesome reactions.

~When you ask to take a cardboard box home from work and when someone asks why, you say
"I'm making a sword!"

~When you frequent the "Things you never thought you'd say" thread and aren't phased by anything you post there.

~When you and your friends get so in character, you respond to said characters' names and ignore your own.

You know you're a cosplayer when you go shopping and every item of clothing you see, you think "That would be good for a _______ cosplay."

I do this all the time, I even bought one of those sailor-style tops just because it reminded me of a sailor fuku o.o
