Easiest way to get round ur parents with the "First time cosplaying shock" and the parents thinkin wtf is do what i did, make ur costume without them knowing... then 1 day come down stairs if your family are eating together in your full costume... and say dad... i need to tell you something... im a cosplayer XD
he just sat there like, u weirdo... cool costume tho XD
Luckily he likes FF7 and i was dressed as cloud...
My mum still thinks im weird XD
Anyway, im from manchester too (Altrincham)
13th Grey Knight Adeptus Inquisitor
well... at least i would be if i had my armor...
