13. Your least favourite thing about cosplay?
When you put a lot of effort into a cosplay and you don’t end up liking how you look really. Ive had that happen a few times, and it just will! Especially early on. But having all your work…not work…isn’t that wonderful.
23. The cosplay you put the most effort into?
Homura haha i’m working on her really hard because I want her to be great.
29. Something you want to improve on for future cosplays.
Better construction! Right now ive finally learned the proper way to make clothes so i’m hoping I can pull out better and cleaner cosplays soon.
5. The character you have cosplayed that is most similar to you (if none that you have cosplayed, then one that you will cosplay)
I’d have to say Vriska on that one. I relate and understand her so well because the things I try to do for people often doesn’t work out. I’m very strong willed, and often a lot of people see me like someone who can never break, or feel bad, or other things. But inside, although those are parts of my personality, I have a spot where I question myself, and my choices, and if they’re right for what I really want for myself. And then I ask myself what I really want for myself because often, I don’t know. To be liked, I think. And I think that’s the way Vriska feels too.
I’m sorry I just have a lot of feelings about my baby.
Second in line is Homura from Madoka Magica though. When I really care for someone, when I have a crush, when I want someone to like me, I do these stupid self sacrificing things all the time that most of the time go completely unnoticed. Like stopping my entire day to do something for someone. Like going out of my way to make sure they’re comfortable. never saying no, really. Always there to please because I want them to be happy and I want to make them happy. Never had I seen that before in a character until Homura, who goes through timeline after timeline, pain after pain, to keep Madoka safe and happy, even when at the end, the person who she’s jumping through flaming hoops to make sure if safe, the person who she cares for, doesn’t even really know who she is. But she still does it. Because she cares.
Bluh sorry haha I also have a lot of Homura feelings.
12. Your cosplay-making habits (eg. singing while working on cosplay)
I tend to leave on the TV, mostly to either E! or Disney Channel or sometimes Discovery. I know way too much about the Kardashians, Good Luck Charlie and Amish Mafia. I never wanted this.
28. Cosplay peeves/things you are particular about
Ah this is hard because I try to not judge people for cosplay or look down on any cosplays but there are a few things i’m always sort of sad seeing, especially on an otherwise good costume, because the details are what makes it and it’s a shame some people don’t pay attention to them. People putting the headband for troll horns on top of the fucking wig is a big one like please no. Leaving things unhemmed is another big one for me. When I can see the raw edge of fabric I just sort of sigh. When people use their natural hair when a wig would have looked so much better is another big one. Those are my only big ones though, and when I see them I don’t go “oh god awful cosplay” I just…get sad, like I said haha.
Oh, that’s really interesting! Hm, puts a new perspective on things doesn’t it. Well, now this just means my Alpha OTP isn’t even incest haha another barrier broken down for Dirk/Roxy aww yeah.
Thank you anon! I feel more informed now c:
Well not really. Some people have started getting panel times back BUT they’re extremely tentative and subject to change until Katsucon posts them so ive been politely asked not to share them haha. Because why share when they may be wrong, you know? But I can say that panel acceptance and times have started being e-mailed out, slowly but surely. I know a few panels that have their times and a few that don’t yet.
Well we don’t know how they came to be in this world, so we? I mean they could very well be created by some ectobiology. It’s very possible that they could be related just like Rose and Dave.
Correct me if i’m wrong though.
Dersecest encompasses all the derse kids (at least for me), and Roxy/Dirk did a thing. They’re like the second generation of dersecest haha.
(that was a joke - that was just the job I got posted to do those hours. but then not very many people were cosplaying, at least while coming through the registration line)
Well I mean ive never actually had a problem with wristband badges because the people who work the lines have understood me being a cosplayer. I always either ask if I can put it on myself, or ask if they can put it on loose enough because I have photoshoots, and they’re more than happy to oblige. But ive also heard of cons where they MAKE you wear them WRIST TIGHT so the only way you can take it off is to cut it and. Gross.
Here it is! If you ever lose the link, it’s tagged “sales post”
I…should have…fuck! They’re not there! When I edited the post it must not have gone through.
Hold for one moment my good sir. They’ll be up there in about 20 minutes, tops.
Taken care of, thank you anon!
