She thought I was kidding the whole time. I would always go fabric shopping and such with my friend (cosplay group, AKA two peeps) and then we'd spend the night at her house, sewing our hearts out..... and watching Spirited Away. But when we finished 2 weeks before a con we were going to (WHICH WAS CANCELED!!!! D
we showed my family also.
She was flipping out. My Sakura (Shippuden) turned out pretty well. She was surprised but then was all like, "So what do you do in costume at these cons? It sounds suspicious"
She is very supportive, bought me a sewing machine so I could stop borrowing my friend's.
