Got something similar from my father-in-law, but it was more along the lines of "Oh, did you get those at the local stripper supply store?" He wasn't being judgmental or anything, tho'. Just curious. ^^;

This is not really about cosplay, but i was making a cosplay when this started...
Me: "I think this has to be a bit shorter"
Mom: "Oh no no no no. I think it's fine the length it is"
Dad: *looks over top of his newspaper* "Lacy, honey, did I ever read you the book about nuns?"
Me: "No....???"
Dad: "Well back in their day, they got lots of ass, you see, and it was because of those long skirts and tops that covered everything. EVERYTHING."
Me: "Uh dad, i dont think nuns 'got ass'...."
Mom: "Oh yes they did. My friend in highschool dressed like a nun. Thats how she became pregnant at 16"
Me: "Ohhhhkayyyy. Ya. Uhm. Whatever yall say. Like i said, this is going to be shorter"
Mom: *facepalm*

It's funny because I didn't think my Mom would ever come out with that, a lot of people tend to think PVC/Latex = stripper stuff

While it's not my parents, I did get my Nana to watch Black Cat with me once, this was our conversation:

Me: Nana, I'm cosplaying this guy (Lin Xiao Li)
Nana: That's a guy?
Me: yes, that's a guy. A guy with a magical rainbow scarf of doom.
Nana: He's very Pretty, now who's the green haired guy?
Me: That's Sven.
Nana: Who's him in your group?
Me: Me.
Nana: Don't smoke. It's bad for you.
Me: I know Nana, I have paper cigarettes.
Nana: Good. Now that's the guy your friend is cosplaying, right? That you made the gloves for?
Me: Yes Nana, that's Jenos.
Nana: And who's this lady?
Me: That's Echidna. She's Creed's Henchwoman.
Nana: Is anyone her in your group?
Me: I also agreed to be her.
Nana: She's pretty. Now which one's Creed again?
Me: The one with the really weird laugh.
Nana: Oh yeah, him.
Me: I'm gonna cosplay him as well.
Nana: ...you better wear something under that.

Mom: "Do you and your brother always have to be the opposite gender?"

Me: "You still end up with one son and one daughter."

anytime i crossplay the first thing my mom does is ask if I'm gay. No matter how many times I tell her I'm straight as a street, she just never stops asking!
Also, when I was dressed as Sollux, she asked me in a very sad tone "why are you dressed as a demon on easter?" my response was, "no, mom, Sol is the good guy." we had a minor fracus about it haha

My problem is my shoe collection. Every time I need to buy new shoes for cosplay, my dad always looks at me very seriously and asks:

"Are you sure you need another pair? I think you have enough, yes?"

and

"I read an article about a lady that has so many shoes that she created a museum for them. 500 pairs." Looks at me very pointedly. "She may have you beat by a little, but it's a good idea cause you'll get there."

Hello, geeks. Look at your profile, now back to mine, now back at your profile, NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, your cosplays aren't mine, but if you stopped wearing cat ears and fishnets and made your own suits of armor, yours could look like mine. Where does this LINK go? Back at me. I see it, it’s my facebook page filled with pics of me creating that thing you love. Look again, THE PICS ARE NOW VIRAL. Anything is possible when your costume looks like Spazmodroid's and not this.

I'm over 9000

My parents' reaction to my Casual! Lovino cosplay

Me: I'm getting ready to leave.
Mom: Is that your cosmic play? (She always says cosmic instead of cosplay XD)
Me: Yes, mom. This is my /cosplay/.
Mom: Is that what your character wears?
Me: Yeah. Well this is a more /casual/ version of him.
Dad: /HIM/?
Me: Yes.. /Him/.
Dad: *looks at my mom* O-Kay..

I always Crossplay though XD

Now I can't remember if I said this to my dad or my friend's dad, but I referred to Hartia as "Fruity Ninja sorcerer prince of the white boys."

Whoever's dad it was gave me WTF face and walked away.

Everyone in my family is really supportive. My mom just thinks it's better than me doing drugs, and my grandma just gets really really excited when I make something cute. It's always fun though when I get new wigs, specially long ones cause my Mom thinks they're fun.

My first (half-assed) attempt at cosplay was Moonbay from Zoids: Chaotic Century. She wears some sort of face paint, and my grandfather saw it and asked if we had an Indian in the family.

Another time, I was showing my kimono to my aunt, and my uncle walked in and asked the classic "Is it Halloween?" question.

I apologize if anyone was offended by my relatives'...less-than-politically-correct comments.

Oh gosh, haha. I've gotten that (and I'm sure so many others) so many times. A few days before Halloween my friends I went to go hookah and some kids were all "Halloween isn't for a few more days, freaks!" Oh, lovely. You're quite charming.

<333 Hahaha.


Hmm, I think my mom tries to avoid much cosplay conversations with me.
The only amusing one I could think of is:

Me: *looking at people's cosplaying pictures*
Mom: *comes over to see what I am doing* "Your friends?"
Me: =m= "Ahhh, no."
Mom: "You guys aren't friends?"
Me: .....


I didn't know how to break it to her. >>;; .... But with my silence, it was pretty obvious that not all cosplayers are friends. 8 D LMAO Too many cosplayers out there in the world.
