Secret Cosplays idea
Alot of people come onto CI to use the Journals and everything to know where they are up too right?
But what if you want to do a Secret cosplay or any cosplay but dont want the world to know of it yet?

You have a privacy setting so far on The to do list and the shopping list but not on Journals or the actual costume

Basically Trying to say I think we should have a privacy setting on Costumes so that people with Secret costumes or Experiments can keep them to themselves and can show it when they are ready to show them ^^

Part of me feels that, technically, you could just write it up on your PC on Word/notepad/etc then when it comes to revealing your secret cosplay just copying and pasting it to CI - after all, you can change the dates on journal entries.

I get why you want it - it's easier just to uncheck/check a box and switch it to show journal, just dunno if there is much point.

Although I am one of those people who get a tad annoyed at "secret cosplays" when people don't show any progress etc or hints to what it is. I don't see the point of putting it up on a public forum lol - don't mind the ones where people put like, a corner of the fabric/outfit or an extreme close up, then reveal it when people guess correctly... Though it's cause I had "friends" who did it to exclude me from cosplay groups

I can understand why privacy settings on the journals of costumes would be a good idea. For example, you could write a post and publish the post privately so that the date and time of it is already registered. When you later reveal the cosplay the times and dates do not change.

Normally a journal would help you write your thoughts and feel more organized too. Having a privacy setting on the journal page may help you to do this without the feeling that you are giving away too much information.

Then when you DO want to reveal everything, all it takes is a click of a button.

I used to do "secret cosplays," although I don't any more. I just feel that if I want my cosplay to remain a secret, then I'll put it up when I'm finished. I know that back then I really would have appreciated this setting! I can understand why people like "secret cosplays" and still put them up here. I guess I'm neither for or against them these days. It's a person choice after all ^_^
