in a battle of perfect anime husbandos…
…would teppei or makoto be the victor?
It’s okay! This happens to every cosplayer at some point or another. Heck, I have some friends who never finish costumes in time for cons because their lives tend to get so hectic that they fall behind on their projects. It’s just one of those things that goes along with any deadline-oriented hobby. You’ll finish some costumes on time, and others you won’t.
Remember: this is a hobby. It is not a life-or-death situation. Is it disappointing to not finish a costume in time for the con? Absolutely! I’ve been there many times. But all of those times I didn’t finish, nothing bad happened. I was not kicked out of the hobby, I was not shunned at the con, my sewing machine didn’t burst into flames as the Cosplay Gods descended upon my work room to unleash their mighty wrath.
Take a step back. Deep breaths. You’re going to finish what you can get done before the con, and that’s it. If your costume is complete in time, awesome! If not, you can either wear it unfinished or wait to debut it at the next con. Also, since it sounds like you’re working on multiple projects, I think it’d be smart to focus on the one that will be easiest to finish in time! That way you’ll get at least one costume done, which should make you feel much better.
But no matter what, you are still going to go to that convention and have a great time, okay? Enjoy your friends’ company, meet some new people, and treat yourself to a special treat from the dealers room or artist alley! Cosplay is a great part of conventions, but it’s not the be-all-end-all; don’t stop yourself from having a great weekend just because plans fell through.
Best of luck, anon! I want to hear all about your awesome con after you get back! :D
I HAVE. A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT KISE AND MIDORIMA AND TEPPEI.
Starfire! I’d love to see her design in the YJ art style. Plus I think it’d be fun seeing her and Miss Martian interacting, since they’re both alien girls trying to fit in with Earth society.
