This can really go either way. We’ve seen people spend hours, days, weeks even on crafting the perfect vest for a Viking costume or hand-forging a sword for that Samurai outfit. Sometimes you think that if an actual version of the thing these people are dressing up as popped out of thin air, whatever it was would be impressed. These are the kinds of people who might be slackers when it comes to their chosen profession, but take great pride and joy in their hobbies. They could be woodworkers, band members, or people who spend lots and lots of time at science fiction conventions.
