Most of your facebook profile photos are of you in cosplay

...When you find that sock glue is useful for more things than socks XD

...When you constantly think to yourself 'as soon as this academic year ends/get work off, im going full-on on my current cosplay until it's done' and cant help but to consider what to buy cosplay wise as soon as you get paid next.

...when someone on a reality show, or something like that, says that they had a costume/prop/wig at a certain price from a costume shop making it sound that its expensive (in their opinion) then you say to the TV with something like 'My wig costs £40 and I done the styling' as if it's normal.

...You forget about your normal life once to travel down to a convention/Expo and just want to have fun, socialise, consume some alcohol and to make friends.

...You would rather keep some old clothes as pattens rather than throw them out.

when you get off the phone and realise you spent 2 hours discussing material/future events or costumes.

when your summer plans revolve around your next project.

despite people stuck in foreign countries all over the world due to the ash, all you can think about is you wig in Hong Kong

the people that work at your local/nearest fabric store start asking "so what costume are you working on this time"

06 Jun 2010 - 00:2533642
when you cant go clothes shopping without thinking about eveything you having something to do with a costume

...When you get excited when you see Westlife's 'World Of Our Own' video because it's set at Excel.

... Really? XD
*goes watch*
Oh my gosh I never noticed that before! That's awesome XDDDD I just looked at the video and went "OMG I DID A SHOOT THERE LAST WEEKEND 8D"... Now I have the urge to listen to a load of cheesy boybands that I use to love .____.; Oh deary me...

You know you're a cosplayer when you start using your cosplays as normal clothing (seriously, some of the jackets I've made are warmer than some of my normal jackets - this is probably a sign that I need more jackets XD)

At a normal fancy dress party, you would rather make something for it rather than use clothes from your wardrobe because you're so use to making costumes all the time that it's no fun using closet clothes.

You can't pick up a new series without wanting to cosplay a character from it.

Your house is littered with fabric.

When you need a second wardrobe just for cosplays...

You know you're a cosplayer when...

-You have no money
-One or two rooms in the house have completley been taken over by fabric and cosplays
-You have dreams about your next cosplay or convention (usually going wrong)
-You have a pile of unfinished coursework and essays but somehow a new cosplay has appeared
-You try to make cosplays where you can use some of the items as 'normal' clothes so you feel like every day is a convention day
-You can't wait until the summer holidays because it means 6 weeks of costume making
-When you are at conventions all you talk about is what you are going to wear for the next one

I will think of more later! *runs off to add bias tape to a costume*

- If you're a uni student you can't wait for uni summer holidays, because it's 3 MONTHS of costume making
- You can't throw out anything because it 'might be useful for a costume'.
- Your parents check with you before throwing out anything because it might be useful for a costume.
- It near kills you when you have an idea for a costume, but can't start it yet because you're at uni for another 4 weeks and everything for the costume is at home D:

You know your a cosplayer when..

... You're reading through this thread nodding and agreeing to almost everything other people have posted.

06 Jun 2010 - 18:2033729
You stop yourself from buying a lot of clothes because you know you can make them for much cheaper... despite knowing that you'll be too lazy to do so.

Quote kirato:

.... you use pets and family members as props in your cosplay shoots

...I'm gonna do that...
With my little baby bwudda.

When he's old enough of course. Maybe one and a half? I dunno.

-When you are actually willing to do (school)work for a cosplay or cosplay part.

06 Jun 2010 - 19:4333747
-When you cosplay to the year 11 prom (yup, I am so going to cosplay to the prom, I can't wait!)


07 Jun 2010 - 09:1733786
-when your mum tells you to throw out your old clothes you end up hiding them under your bed to cut them up for cosplay later
-You cry if your costume gets a rip in it
-If the weapon you make isnt amazing you emo over it and bin it and start again...(try a 5 foot oath keeper..yh im not aloud to make props no more XD)
-You tell a family member the top there wering has an anime charatcer on it (Lil sister hates anime wore a top with Ichigo from tokyo mew mew on it and once i told her she never wore it again)

Who are you going as?!


You know you're a cosplayer when you bribe your boyfriend with anything possible just so that he'll cosplay with you as the sexy guy from that new anime you saw so that you can do couple scenes at the next convention

15 Jun 2010 - 13:1734449
You know your a cosplayer when.. you have no social life because your always too busy with your latest projects


when you become dependent on coffee because you stay awake all night making cosplays

15 Jun 2010 - 22:3934503
when you cosplay. >___>

I'm joking. You know you're a cosplayer when its on your mind. All. The. Flipping. Time. -_-
Get out of mah head!

- when your first thought while watching the intro video for a new game or the first episode of an anime is 'who could i cosplay?'

- when you have a summer project and dissertation research to do for the fast-approaching 3rd year of your degree and you still decide it would be a good idea to make two costumes during the holidays (both more ambitious than anything you've made before!)

- when you can't sleep because your imagining how your going to put your armor together even though you don't have the fabric yet!

21 Jun 2010 - 20:3134901
- "THAT'S a wig" at even the most subtle of fake hairpeices xD WE CAN TELL! >D

- When the charity shops know you by sight/name

- Someone is making a bold fashion statement on the street and you're like "Oooh what material is that?" and stalk them a bit trying to get a better look at it

- One of your friends jokingly suggests that they should cosplay something and you're RIGHT THERE with an assortment of wig images and various characters they could pull off.

You know when your a cosplayer when....

You come away on holiday and the first thing you want to buy is that will go good for a cosplay - for me ...... belts >.<

Sorry about the late reply, I am going as Sakura from Tsubasa in her dream dress version. (the gold and white one with floaty trails ^-^)

You know you're a cosplayer when...

- You start to watch a series with NORMAL CLOTHES and NORMAL PEOPLE in it and think "I wanna start a group from this series" (my example would be Lost ahahahahahahahahaha)

- You fangirl with a friend over a website with stacks of costume information and pattern refrences.

- When you see any relationships in anything anime/games/shows and you're cosplaying a charatcer in one and think "OMG I NEED A *insert name of their specila someone here*" (this includes friednships too xD)

27 Jun 2010 - 19:5235250
You know when your a cosplayer when

-You lie to the people of your college about what a convention is e.g. It's a place where you look at bones of dinosaurs {Seriously, one of my friends did that}

-You can't stop thinking about your next cosplay or convention or current project etc ... but you really don't care!

-When your none cosplaying friends are so close to killing you if you so much as mention the word cosplay again. {All my none cosplay friends are like this with me }

-When your parents ask you what you're doing and you reply "Cosplay" or "Anime" and they just roll their eyes and walk away.

-When your parents/family think you're a freak ... but it's okay!

Quote Alyx:
When you have an ultimately incredible awesome idea and in an excited, frantic haze you end up spending SO MUCH MONEY without even knowing it, buying everything you need within the first 5 seconds of having the idea ... and once you start you then think... actually... this is REALLY HARD! >.<

lol, as soon as i got the idea of cosplaying for next year i priced everything i need and thoght exactly that

hmm... petrol covered glove...check...matches...check...loss of sanity...check

you tell yourself "i'm doing this so i can get to the con" to motivate yourself to go to school/work.

I predict that the world will end at half past six. what i don't know is exactly when.
04 Jul 2010 - 10:4435650
you know you're a cosplayer when...

you start replacing real words with words from your favourite anime
