Wigaches is a thing!? I seriously thought I was like the only one who got them. (Then again, I am the only one in my group of friends who wears wigs more often then not).

I don't know a person who doesn't get them. O.o

Trying to pack the delicate pieces. It's terrifying.

Well the only other person in my group of friends who has worn a wig is my friend Nicky and she has a smaller than average head. You know those "ONE SIZE FITS ALL" hats? They're too big on her. So her head is small enough to where when she wore her wig, it didn't give her a wig headache.

Also, I know that feeling, Mina. I'm freaking out trying to make sure my rifle doesn't die.

I just hope my cologne vial doesn't shatter and soak my clothes like a guido.

Annoyances? CAN'T FIND JAYNE HAT OR SNOW WIG. DAMMIT.

I've had similar worries about my perfume...

Transporting complicated styled wigs... I think I'll bring back the good ol' wig box for last year.

lol And this is why I love my sewing machine case. It fit two wig heads in perfectly with space left over for the wigs that went into bags.
Transporting nail polish. The fear.

Wigaches, eh? I remember last year I wore a fuzzy hat to go with my Pyro costume and good GOD it gave me a headache. So this year I'm going with his firetruck hat, which should be much less air tight on my skull!

Also, not looking forward to getting a headache Saturday (that's when I'll be wearing a wig too!). Advil away!!! Or better known to me as my personal stash of head Skittles.

Yea I just packed my migraine medicine because I know I will need it xD

I can't find an important prop and I have no idea to remake it. UGH. I've taken a break from ripping apart rooms to find it....It will probably be somewhere completely obvious

Get one of the fabric sewing machine cases, I transport mine in them and a tall wig head fits fine standing up in it, plus than your sewing machine can travel if it needs to. =D They come in lots of colors, hard or soft and have wheels.


Your room getting destroyed from fabric and props. Seriously, took 3 hours of cleaning today from the mess.

Hope you find your vanished prop, Puppet Queen! Gosh, whenever I tear my room for something I end up either finding it in the most obvious place or, what normally happens...the object in question has vanished inside a portal in my room to an alternate dimension.

Haha! That was my cosplay-shoes this morning. Turns out I left them in the garage. (Which is why if you have impaired vision, you should just wait until you have your glasses/contacts on to find items or you'll look right over them)

Realizing, half way through production, that no, ten yards of lace was actually not enough for your enormous gown.
