a hobby is a hobby is a hobby

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 13, 2011, 5:40 PM
Money's tight and going to stay that way for a while now and while I planned on PokketFairy and I doing one last cosplay together before selling our old ones I'd rather not attach such a sad memory to them. Hopefully things will get better and if not I'm very grateful to have met so many amazing people during my adventures in cosplay. :thanks:

Here's a feature for those amazing people.

Bah, I'm really sorry to hear that. I know what you mean (So oversaid, but so true)
I'm glad you have enough common sense to take a breather rather than try to juggle like so many people try to do (Including myself, hahaXD). Not just sorry on the cosplay front but whole life thing too, lifes expensive as heck. It'd probably be a heck of a lot cheaper if we didn't eat.
I really wish all the best to you, you're super nice so karma will kick in eventually, just try not to sweat it so much in the meantime. C:
Goodness, I wish I could think of more to say, I just feel really sad and bad about it vov

Thanks, lots of plans just blew up in my face and apartment hunting/lease breaking I'm going to sell organs at this point is just not how I wanted to start the year out. Some of the cosplays should go since I just don't see myself wearing them again but I've also put some back to keep. :)

Aww so many cosplayers are in the same situation moneywise lately D: all the cosplayers should just get together for one giant yard sale for our poor yet expensive hobby. So I'm assuming this means :iconlillyanerefia: and I won't be seeing ya at Megacon or Metro?

I know what you're going through, the only con I can afford this year is Metro ): Money is very tight this year and the amount of cosplays I wanted to do is now downsized.
It is a hobby and you can always come back to it, but right now it's hard for you to keep up and spend money on full weekends, fabric, etc. However, you're more than welcome to stay at my place whenever you want and just have a good time :) It's sad you have to let some cosplays go, but it's for the better. I still need Zexion photos with you missy!!! D:<
I hope everything will become easier after you let all the problems flee, and I'd like to say that I'll miss you and Gracie at cons and all. ): I'm now just thinking of what Shawn does, and not purchase any passes for the weekend and just walk around and enjoy hanging with friends because of the amount of ticket prices is just horrendous.
Miss you guys so damn much ;____; I love youuuuuuuuuuu <3
thanks for the feature too, I don't know what I'd do without meeting you...I'd be lost ):
[really, let me know when you'd have the chance to spare some time and head up here hoe]

2011 Y U SO SPENSIVE ALREADY?!

I need like a month at your house to get out all my ZEXION/LARXENE needs then another month to chill with you and bask in your backyard island. ALSO I need to stop purchasing weekend passes like you and all the other smart people because dayum that would've saved me so much $$$

Aww, I'm very sorry that you have to give up cosplay for now, but like you said it's just a hobby and there are more important things in life. I hope that everything gets better for you and that you have a happy Valentine's Day! :hug: :heart:

I really know how that feels, because I've been in the same situation before, but I don't think that I could give up entirely. All last year I just wore the same cosplays and didn't get any new ones, and attended every con I went to without a badge.
Money controls everything in the world, sadly.
But even though we met through cosplay, you're a very sweet girl, and an absolutely amazing friend, and I'm so glad I met you.
I hope that I can continue to be your friend through everything, you know I'll always be here for you.

Ugh you and I man. One day we're getting an apartment together so we can have our own cons n'shit. You are one of the most awesome people I've met in the cosplay community and that's why our apartment con is going to be the next best thing next to DragonCon.

Oh yes. Apartmentcon is a go! :D Featuring guests like real live action figures and stuffed animals! What could go wrong? And the living room rave? Nothing better man, nothing better.
