Cosplay/Expo/Con nightmares
I suppose we've all been there when we've been stressing out about cosplays or cons/expos that we end up having dreams/nightmares about them.

Just last night I had a funny dream about being in a hotel miles away from the ExCel centre, and the cheapest way to get there was by cab. I didn't have enough money/didn't want to spend my money and went on the Underground, even though I heard it was costing £1,250 to get to ExCel.
Very weird.

Got any to share?

I've started having my expo dreams >_< And they always involve something going wrong for me 8D

My first one was my boot covers coming off my boots in the middle of the expo and I was very upset over it >_<

The second was that I forgot my wig cap and so couldn't put my wig on 8D And I couldn't buy any either, weird XD

I think I've only had one this time round, and that was a few weeks ago, so I don't remember it.
But they generally consist of me forgetting my wig/vital part of costume or missing half of it because I get lost/can't get my costume on etc. . .
But there's still just over a week to go, I bet they'll come flooding in the next few days Dx

I absoulutly hate cosplay nightmares! >.< I had a Expo nightmare a couple of nights back.
In the dream, Expo wasn't on the weekend, it was on a schoolday instead, so i had to ditch school to go. And being the nerd that i am, i felt very uncompfortable doing it. And then when i got there, noone else was cosplaying O__O

I've had ones that include not having my costume done and wearing half of one costume and half of the other and recently one where I arrived and it was all over and people were hanging around outside sat on the docks just chatting about the most awesome expo ever o.0

I show up at expo.... and I'm naked |:

Also various costume going wrong type ones. One where I was cosplaying the 10th doctor, but I had a black suit jacket and grey pants and no wig...

I explained con nightmares to my mum and she explained that when she was taking us to cons she had them too. It rubbed off on her :c

Before last expo I dreamt that I didn't get either of my costumes done and was at the expo, in normal clothes, bored and stressed. I woke up so scared :'D

I don't think I really get cosplay nightmares... Just general Expo ones where I oversleep and miss my coach ROFL. Cause I'm a lazy arse like that and it's totally doable by myself orz.

I've become pretty laid back with my cosplays now, probably because I'm just so damn lazy. I don't know why I sound so happy when saying that :'D

Oh gawdddd,
I have ones where I forget my wigcaps (I take like 5 incase I loose one XD) - This has happened in the past ;--; Had to cut some tights up xD
And I always have ones where I forget a main/ vital part of my cosplay -
Or I don't finish a costume and I wear it anyway o_e <- which is something I'd never do x__x;;
They scare me so much XD;;;

I had one the other week where somebody died at expo

My nightmares are usually that I get to excel, realised I've forgot something but I cant find the hotel room so I spend all expo trying to find my room o.O

Worst I've had so far was last night; I got a call from my feather supplier saying they'd forgotten about my order and it wouldn't be ready for another 2 weeks after expo. T.T Thankfully all the feathers actually arrived this morning so at least the dream didn't come true at all!

Last year I had a expo dream...? Or much earlier than that but it was about the day of expo and I wasn't even wearing my cosplay. When I was running back home (gosh, why do I even try? lol), I was running so slow, so terrible and I didn't even get to expo at the end of it because I woke up XD;;

I also had a dream like this I had forgotten everything and I was being laughed at ...

I wouldn't say that mine are nightmares, but they are pretty weird.

I had a dream a while ago that I was wearing my Sora cosplay, My friend had left me to go talk to a L cosplayer. So I started talking to a Roxas coslayer, then the rest of his group showed up and it turns out that the Roxas cosplayer was part of ParleProductions. Another one I had was that I was kidnapped by a Demyx and Axel cosplayer. :/

Had a rather strange dream last month. I went home in the middle of a convention for some reason and when I returned hardly anyone was there. I think I got lost trying to find my hotel room D:

I keep having horrible dreams about forgetting my ticket, or buying the wrong train ticket and ending up somewhere else o.o I had one that I kept buying the wrong ticket but then finally got there (After going to the beach, and being stopped by the queen having some weird procession thing), only to realise I didn't have my suitcase T_T
I'm making a huge check list to make sure I don't forget ANYTHING.

I had been fine, but after reading this thread I had a cosplay dream. I blame you all

Every time someone pointed a camera at me the wig I was wearing would slip right back and I'd be tugging it back on in every photo. Not wearing any long wigs to Expo though, so it won't get me there!

I always have the same worry that I'm gonna forget my ticket for Expo! Even more so now cause it's a print out which is up on my pinboard nxt to me mac atm.

I also fear forgetting any vital part of a cosplay (this time tis the shoes and zentai hood I fear forgetting).

I plan on QUADROUPLE checking my packing before I even think on leaving the house Friday morning!

I had my first expo/cosplay nightmare last night. I dreamt my neji hyuuga contact lenses had for some reason expanded and the design on the lenses had come off. Also for some reason this happened at a swimming pool!

Despite this dream's strangeness when I woke up I still went and checked my contact lenses to see if they were ok

Never should have watched Inception...
I was sick and occasionally delirious while at Amecon this summer. I had a dream on the Thursday night after we arrived that I woke up and it was Monday. I was obviously confused that I had missed three days and thus the whole con so I asked my friends what was happening. They told me I'd been unconscious for three days. When I asked if they were worried or why they didn't take me to hospital they fobbed me off, saying it was fine. Smelling a rat, I asked if I was dreaming. They said I wasn't and to stop being silly. I asked three times during my dream if I was dreaming and each time they answered in the negatory.

Needless to say I was rather confused when I awoke to find it Friday, that I hadn't missed the whole con and that all my friends weren't a bunch of idiots who would leave me unconscious for three days without batting an eyelid. I'm still not entirely convinced I'm awake now.
