Im slowly convincing my friends into cosplay,
None of them watch Anime but they dont have anything against it.
Ive managed to get 3 friends to Cosplay.
One that still questions How I walk for 3 whole day's.

The Irony though.
Last con I went to, I took one of my closest friends and got her into one of my old cosplays.
She won ticket's to our next convention.
I think I'll be taking her everywhere now if she can keep winning like this.
2009 (Its almost over..)

Two of my best friends cosplay<333 Most of my friends are into anime, even if its just a little, or are aware that I'm an anime freak. So its pretty cool cause I never feel like I'm hiding anything from them. They even put up with my spazz rants about cons and such.

My friends are ... iffy. They think it's interesting, and that my cosplays are cool and all, but they kind of don't like how much it takes out of my time. =(

So they pretty much drifted away from me a little when I was prepping for AX... since I had to finish cosplay AND prep / prepare for AniMaid Café. D: .. Sad.

I've met a ton of new people through AX / Cosplay though, and they're all into it as well, so I'm a happy meow now. ^w^'' AX FTW, love the AX Forums. =D

Most, if not all of my friends like my hobby. A few of my closer friends actually brag about my costumes to others, which makes me blush like crazy! I also have the friends I invite to cons and they willingly help with my costumes, such as helping me put on my Sephiroth wing or armor.

I love my friends, they deal with my madness, or as they call it, entertainment.

My CLOSE friends love it.

My ACQUAINTANCES, however...well, they think it's weird and some even think it's..."scary." o.O

a lot of times i connect with friends from MS/beginning of HS [cuz I moved in the 10th grade] on facebook, and they'll be like "what the hell happened to you? You're so weird now!" And Im like "O.o"

Most of my friends think it's weird enough that I like anime, so they don't even know about cosplaying XD I do have a group that I cosplay with when I can though, so that makes everything better... gives me people to rant to, too!

I don't have many friends that cosplay or go to anime conventions, myself. They really don't think anything of it, they just like to see my creations.

Same. Some Friends are actually into it...but that's only like 2 or 3 and they don't have the time to actually cosplay even thoug they want to. The rest of them either hate anime in general, hate cosplaying, or just think im weird to cosplay. Yet they are still great friends. Just can't mention cosplay around them.

Most of my friends enjoy anime, but they don't cosplay.

Only myself and one of my friends cosplays.

My other friends don't particularly enjoy it.

Lol. My school friends think it's interesting but they consider it just a hobby, something I do and we don't really discuss it that much. They're anime nerds though cosplay is not relatively important to them.

Though one of my school friends recently started cosplaying with me and loves it.

Most of my friends go to different schools in the same area (same district I think, too) and they are all my cosplay friends. I see them very often for movies and such.

Well...... none of my friends no about me cosplaying ^_^;;
Except one, but she is also a cosplayer and I met her at a con.
But none of my "school" friends know, and I don't plan for them to know. They already think I'm weird enough lol XP
