Ways to Get Out of a Cosplay Procrastination Slump

We’ve all been there. Two weeks before the con and there’s still just a pile of fabric sitting in the corner. Then we’re up the night before the con sobbing over our sewing machine because nothing is going right. Here’s how I get out of my slumps!

  1. Watch cosplay music videos on youtube - There are tons that are floating around there, and they all look amazing and always make me think, “I WANT TO BE THAT AWESOME! LET’S DO THIS!”
  2. Look at the cosplay tag - There are tons of progress posts there. Whenever I see progress posts, I want to make progress of me own.
  3. Make a facebook status that you’re sewing. - This will keep people from messaging you non-stop and allow you to actually get bored enough to sew.
  4. Look at your past cosplays - If you could make those, you can do this, right?
  5. Treat yourself! - I treat myself every time I finish one part of a costume. Finished the wig? ICE CREAM. Finished the top? CANDY BAR. Finished the shorts? I’m go buy me an icee.
