It's because I don't respond to 'ERIN' being shouted from three rooms away. My names Lisa, not Erin. I don't respond unless it's the third time that day.

I pretty much have to explain what E3, anime and any genere of video game are to my parents whenever I mention them.

They seem to realise that I start paying attention to some event every year, that I seem to enjoy some sort of cartoon and "The Borderlands" is not the same thing as "2 Fortress" (AKA Team Fortress 2) or "that cartoon thing" (which seems to be a catch all term for any game with manga style graphics) but the rest just disappears after 10 minutes.

Anytime I put on a wig, in costume or not, my brother and Dad both say, "Why can't you just be yourself?"

I'm trying to avoid telling my parents that I'm cosplaying from a show called Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. At least I'm cosplaying as the least dirty-sounding named character, Stocking.

This doesn't exactly apply but it's still funny. When Brittney Karbowski (the voice of Black Star) signed my Soul Eater poster that resides on the inside of my door, she asked, "Can I write 'I will surpass God on here?'" And I said, "Sure," then after she started signing it I said, "Well...my dad's a pastor. He might not like that." She started apologizing profusely but she had already finished so she couldn't take it back. My dad has yet to notice.

Since my parents always ask me to explain who I cosplay as and what the characters do, I had to really sidestep around certain things when it came to Nero from Devil May Cry 4. My parents are like mad crazy conservative religious, but it's not as bad as you think. It's just certain topics really set them off, and the words "devil" and "demon" are the two hot buttons that get them fired up. Problem is, how do you explain Nero without mentioning either word?

Easy... You make stuff up. LoL

As far as my parents are concerned, Dante and Nero run a pizza shop in New Jersey that's located next to a nuclear power plant. Nero's arm got injured in a nuclear accident when he was touring the plant one day. Dante saved him but both were exposed to radiation that allows them their "demon powers." They have the swords to fend off the thugs and idiots who try to steal pizzas or rob the shop. Therefore, Mom and Dad think that Nero and Dante are actually pretty normal, because "People who work at pizza shops can't be that weird." The coats were a little hard to squeeze by, but I said, as shop owners, Nero and Dante can whatever they want, really. So in a nutshell, that's Nero and Dante to my parents. And they've not given me any trouble with Nero. Surprisingly, by misnaming Nero's arm, (Deathbringer) my parents aren't even troubled with that.

To think, I'm having a much easier time with Nero than I had with Cloud. Go figure...

Pizza shop sounds like a great innuendo for supernatural (private) crime fighting...

I had to explain E3 to my mum. I was following it through Twitter texts and she kept asking "Why so many messages?". Explaining my extreme flail over Sonic Generations' remake of City Escape from Sonic Adventure 2 was practically impossible. "IT LOOKS SO GOOD, MUM." "..."

Her reaction when I told her I was going to a Sonic convention... man. I'm not gonna live that one down. She thinks it's weird enough that I cosplay and go to conventions (her main cosplay comment is "...so you like dressing up as an underage boy. From POK…MON. When are you gonna grow out of that?"). But travelling all the way to London to go to a Sonic convention? Yeah, she thinks I'm a bit cracked.

I don't have a 3DS so nope, no crying. I'm still starry eyed and bushy tailed over the entire thing. I'll let you know what it's like in a fortnight after I've played it though. Hopefully I'll get to test the 3DS version and see what that's like.

My husband's comment after I was babbling about the wigs I need to buy for upcoming cosplays:

"Some women have shoe collections. My wife... has a scalp collection."
