Somebody isn’t paying attention. Peel back your eyelids and have a long look through the blog.

You really shouldn’t be.
We don’t judge, we don’t criticise, we just share.
Okay folks, against my better judgement, Anon has been switched on for the next few hours.
If you have questions, comments, criticisms, ideas, suggestions, insults or weird s**t that you’d rather send anonymously, now is the time to do it!
Anyone that has followed WoCC for a while will know that this is a very rare opportunity.
Yesterday we opened up the anonymous option on the WoCC ask box. We asked that if anyone had a comment or question about the blog that they should ask it. Rather than answer each comment individually, it’s easier to do a summary.
Here are the most frequently mentioned and/or note worthy topics.
A decline in submission quality
The note count does not reflect this at all. The average note count for a follower submitted post is about 35 notes. Last week alone there have been submissions that have been blasting past he 100 note mark.
If you’re not happy with the quality of the submissions - submit some content that you think is better.
Bitching about Stitching
Anonymous asked: “I’d like to see more well made costumes instead of the typical “hot-girl-in-some-superhero-costume” There’s more to a good cosplay than your looks. For example choice of fabric and skills with a sewing mashine!”.
That sounds like you’re saying that if you’re attractive (which is ultimately subjective btw) your costume crafting skills are somehow deficient. Obviously somebody missed this reblog.
Everybody loves cosplay for different reasons and as such WoCC has to cater for these differing tastes. As hard as we try, I guess we’re never going to please everyone.
Too many - insert random character name here - posts
It’s not the first time that this has come up. The most recent was Harley Quinn, read what was said about it here.
If you use the Google Chrome browser, you can get the Tumblr Savior extension here. It allows you to blacklist words so that it won’t show up on Tumblr. Simply add the character that you loathe to see get published and voilà!
There were a few anons that singled out some of cosplayers published here at WoCC. The manner and language used was unwelcome. If you have a beef with a cosplayer, that’s between you and them.
Why not spend a few minutes looking at something positive in your life and projecting your energy at that instead? Just a thought.
ON A MORE POSITIVE NOTE…
There will be further news posts this coming week about a few exciting things that we have on the drawing board that some of you may be interested in participating in.
In the meantime, keep it real and enjoy the things you feel.

OK folks, I have switched the Anonymous option on for the next few hours.
If you have anything you would like to say or ask about the blog anonymously, now is the time to do it.
As previously reported, the anon option was switched off. I usually do a survey at least once a month to see what you folks would like to see here at WoCC and to get a measure of how everything is going.
I’m going to try a different approach this time around.
The anon feature will be open until 1st February. If you have any questions, complaints, praise, or anything else you want to say about WoCC, now is the time to do it. You don’t have to be anon but I thought it would be nice to have the option there.
I’ll answer pretty much everything/anything. Ask and you shall receive.
