No one’s perfect, really and if you think you are…well I think you should check your pulse and pinch yourself super hard because you’re either dead or dreaming (preferably the latter).
I’ve been cosplaying for a couple years now, and one thing that I keep reminding myself is–ALWAYS MEASURE TWICE AT LEAST. I admit it can be hard, especially in the wee hours of morning daylight right before con or deadlines; or you’re just so damn excited that you don’t care and you’re not gonna measure and what the hell could go wrong?!
A WHOLE LOT. I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s gotten to the final step and found that I have somehow made something too small, and had to start from square 1 again.
So do yourself, your sanity, and your craft a favor….
Always. Measure. Twice.
