Cosplay Annoyances

Postby pancake-fong » Thu May 10, 2012 11:59 am

So time is ticking down and it's getting to crunch time and I need to work on my costume. But I can't. Cause my work area has been OVERRUN BY FLIES. LIKE A HUNDRED OF THEM. SERIOUSLY. SOME DEAD AND EVEN MORE ALIVE!! (Because my work area is in the garage and this is also where the trash bags go before my dad takes them off).

So, is there anything right now that you'd like to get off your chest about cosplay or rant about because cosplay is causing unneeded stress in your life?

For me right now is waiting for the cosplays I ordered to arrive. I'm just getting worried that they might not come in by AZ, even though the people making them said they will be.

All the pins stabing my poor back. Because of how stupid fitted the piece needs to be... and since I haven't gotten a dressform yet and no one is ever around to help I get to spend the day slowly being stabed in the back. Over and over and over again. Sucks that the piece is white. Always white when it needs pinning in the back... Forever worried of blood stains.

Waiting for my cosplay to arrive is killing me!! ;_;
I also wish I would have heard about AZ before January so that I could have gotten my cosplay ready before now. My boots are more than likely not going to get here in time :(

Debating how much more I want to invest in cosplay, vs having extra beer/pizza/other hobbies $$$.

plastering the entire upper part of your torso.... and then waiting for it to dry before you can take it off....

Garrus is my bro!

So I went into my garage and the flies were back. (I'm guessing one of the trash bags...is...um..."infested"). So I took ant and roach spray and sprayed it all over the window where they congregate (aka, right above my work area). My table and window sill are littered with fly bodies. I don't normally advocate genocide, but when I do, it's against flies.

I've never styled a wig before and this one is complicated. I'm afraid I'm going to mess it up so I keep putting it off v.v;

Being blind as a bat, matching fabric and thread color is always fun. Spooking the customers at the local fabric shop while doing so is an annual tradition and annoyance.

Time is annoying me! It keeps going by too fast AND too slow...at the same time.

I hate waiting between coats to spraypaint stuff. And AZ is right around the corner. WHY MUST I PROCRASTINATE!?!?!
