My friends are already weird so they seem okay with it. I've even had a couple ask to wear some of my old spare cosplays when they wanted to check out the con I go to. The rest are pretty much like, "Oh wow! It's so well made!" or "Oh my gosh, you're such a dork! But that's why I love you xD"
Cosplays for Naka-kon 2015 and Planet Comicon 2015:
