Realizing, no twice what you first thought won't be enough, triple maybe will be enough.

Discovering something is the wrong color or size and having to go back and get something different. Dying fabric is horribly annoying to me as well.

Being an undesignated mom for your cosplay group an making sure now, at crunch time, everyone has everything done and no one is missing small details that would stand out while ALSO finishing your own costumes ;__;

As an avid procrastinator, I waited until this week to try to finish up my last cosplay -,- Do you know how hard it is to find a tiara on short notice??

Alright, after finishing your cosplays the next annoyance is figuring out how to transport it, especially annoying if you have large or delicate cosplay props ugh!

Packing. I just need my stuff to pack itself nicely and not get ruined being packed up... or highly wrinkled.

Waiting for things you ordered WAY too late to come in!

My friend gave me money to buy him a wig and some wig caps. But I ordered them late last week, and they're coming in from China. So chances are that I will have to use my one pretty crappy wig cap for the weekend, and he will not have long hair. He'll just have to be short haired Itachi and I will just have to deal with my wig cap =P At least I have one in the first place! =)

Working on one of my cosplays, only to realize I didn't buy enough trim and need to go back to fabric store to get some more. x_x Also, my sewing machine being a jerk, tangling up the thread when sewing a seam and me having to use the seam ripper for the hundredth time. Ugh! :x

Walking into the craftroom that I share with 2 other people, only to find they have piled a ton of crap (IT'S NOT EVEN MY STUFF!) onto my work table in the middle of my project(s) I'm working on. So I have clear/clean my table every time before I can work on my cosplay.

...I suppose being the designated seamstress/con mom of our group too...yeaaaah >.>

The only complaint I have is my work desk in the kitchen, no matter how many times I clean it and reorganize the threads and needles, my roommates decide to throw everything and it's brother on the desk...making me spend 3 hours cleaning it.
Then the laziness sets in and I take a nap.
:roll:
Too much time cleaning, not enough sewing. I really need to fix my john egbert cape.

Having an idea how to make something, then when you actually execute said idea it fails miserably. (I tried putting alligator clips underneath my Equius horns, only to have one of them completely fall off my head!)

Then, having to coming up with a last-minute idea in order to fix what you have and not lose all your work up until then XD (Taking out the clips in order to glue the horns onto a headband without having all the paint rip right off the bottom half ;___; )

I know the feel Shenanagan!

Ok my cosplay annoyance currently is it being too cold to do work outside! Gah >_< I'm doing a lot of work with bondo ect at the moment and I just cant get a nice mild day. If you wait too long till it warms up you'll almost have no time to work on anything! @_@ Oh and another thing is when spray painting, specs of things getting stuck in it. AHH
