My Nana and I were watching Fruits Basket, and this was her reaction to Ayame:

Nana: Is this guy gay?
Me: No Nana, he's just Fruity.
Nana: Are you sure, he acts gay.
Me: He has a bromance going on with Shigure, but that's it.
Nana: Are you cosplaying him?
Me: ...No. I'm cosplaying Hatori. He's the smart one.
Nana: Why? You already have the wig.
Me: That wig is for Pegasus. I'm cutting it.
Nana: It's a shame to cut it, why don't you be him?
Me: Because our group already has an Ayame. I bought that wig for Pegasus, they just didn't have any shorter ones.
Nana: Well which one's Pegasus again?
Me: *Shows her picture of Pegasus* Him.
Nana: and that's not the guy we just saw?
Me: No, he's from Yu-Gi-Oh. Do you see the Millennium eye on Ayame?
Nana:...Ayame looks like a young Heather Locklear. Why do all the men on this show look like Women?
Me: *facepalm*Welcome to anime Nana.

That's my Nana. She likes Fruits Basket, but she doesn't understand why everyone looks like a girl except Hatori (in her opinion.)

She does like that I'm cosplaying one of the few guys who actually looks it, but finds it odd since I usually am the queen of shemales. And everytime I'm Hatori she tells me not to smoke, no matter how many times I've told her my cigarette is paper and scotch tape XD

Threw on punk!casual Demyx for my trip to the craft store and GameStop- and was promptly called "David Bowie" by my father. I couldn't stop laughing!

Your nana is awesome!

That reminds me of one time when my cousin was really drunk and came into my room and laid with me and at the time I had a bunch of anime pictures posted above my bed and she pointed at a picture of Ayame.
Brandy: Is that a guy?
Me: Yes

I cosplayed as Sweden.... this is the whole conversation from when I first put it on...

Parents - WTF? Why do you want to go as a guy?
Me- Cause it's what all Hetalia fans do...
Parents- Why don't you go as that Japanese pop star you like.
Me- 1... you just bought me a $167 worth of Cosplay and 2.... I like Hatsune Miku... but not enough to cosplay as her...
Parents- Ohh.... Who? ((It becomes racist here so I'll stop))

So yeah.... they also hate anime and manga all together and are trying to hide all my Hetalia and Vampire knight anime....

Me: So I think I want to cosplay something from Pokemon.
Mom: Pokemon? Isn't that that one satanist game?
Me: .....and what gave you that idea?
Mom: The Pokemon evolve, don't they? *comes from a conservatice Christian family*
Me: Actually mom, although they refer to it as evolution, it is nothing like what you consider to be evolution. First of all, evolution in the sense that you know it takes place over millions of years, turning one species into a completely new one, like monkeys evolving into humans. In Pokmon, it is an instantaneous change that is more like a butterfly going into a chrysalis and coming out a butterfly. This is metamorphosis, not evolution. Some Pokemon hardly change at all as they "Evolve", which resembled the gradual metamorphosis that insects like grasshoppers go through, where they always look similar though they get bigger through their lives. Also, microevolution is proven and is in fact not satanist. Microevolution is when a species changes, but remains the same species and this is proven-
Mom: .....So which one do you want to dress up as?
Me: You didn't let me finish my rant. ;A;

Considering that Kingdom Hearts is perhaps the most over cosplayed series of this year and last, and Anime Expo is literally walking distance away from Disneyworld, I'm surprised that cosplayers don't just march on the gates, hundreds upon hundreds of KH cosplayers looking to storm the gates of Disney.

Stuff like this happens all the time, considering my mom is stubborn no matter what rebuttal I throw at her. XD My dad is always just sitting there laughing. I'm still sad that I didn't get to finish my rant. ;A;

XD Ayame and his androgynous-ness.

We actually had a family cookout today and Nana went on a whole tangent to my cousin's husband about Ayame and how feminine he is and to "Put a baseball cap on that guy, man him up a bit!"

I'm afraid of what's going to happen when we get to the episodes with Ritsu...

Heck, since they're pretty amusing, this is my Nana's reactions to all the major Frutis Basket Characters:

Tohru-"Why does her hair stand up like that? hair doesn't do that!"
Yuki-"Why is he so pretty? He's a guy right? What's with his hair? You cosplayed him, right?"
Kyo-"Why does he feel the need to yell so much?"
Shigure-"Finally! One that actually looks like a man! He's funny."
Kagura-"Well...isn't she spirited. She scares me."
Momiji-"That's a boy?! But he's such a pretty little girl..."
Hatori-"Another one that actually looks like a guy. But why does he turn into a seahorse? You're cosplaying him, right? Don't smoke, it's bad for you."
Hatsuharu-"He shouldn't be tripping people with children watching this show! Is he why you were obsessed with cows last christmas?"
Ayame-See aforementioned Rant, along with "I don't like snakes! Why would he turn into something so awful?"
Hana-is "She psychic? Is that why she has an antenna on her head sometimes? Seh doesn't turn into an animal, does she?"
Uo-"That's the one with the pipe, right? "

And that's as far as we've gotten. When we meet more characters, I'll post her reactions.

Also, when I told her that I was cosplaying Hatori and I was going to have a plush white snake to represent Ayame, she freaked out saying she doesn't like snakes. I told her "But it's not a real snake, it's Ayame! You remember Ayame, right?" to which she replies "Well then. Put some eyelashes on that thing when you make it. Girly it up so it'll look like he does."

XD XD XD I love my Nana.

My dad called me cute when he first saw my Gin (Detective Conan) cosplay. Gee thanks Dad, Not really what I was going for.

Well, I found this amusing because my mom had never reacted like this before... (Maybe because I'd never made a cosplay by myself, though)
I had to make my cosplays all by myself without my mom's help and she was super busy with this program that she is taking and stuff...
So when I went to take a progress photo of my Porom cosplay in my mom's room (Since she has a big mirror), she came in and she was really happy and it went like this:
Mom: "Wow!! That's amazing!! Aren't you proud!? And you didn't even need my help!!"
Me: (In a sort of joking way) "Like you would have helped anyway"

And then she started to cry and the conversation continued:
Mom: "I know, I'm sorry. Like, you don't even know. I feel so bad. But look what you did! All by yourself! My baby is growing up!"
And then she hugged me. So I started to laugh inside because for some reason I found it funny = P
And then she went in bed and I was looking in the mirror and then it went:
Mom: "Don't you think it's a little bit short, though??"
Me: "-.- ... no? My skirt for the other cosplay is this short, too."
Mom: "Oh... okay."

I usually do Ciel Phantomhive and I had been ready to leave the house with my friends for the con. My dad looked at me and laughed and said. "You are one well dressed cyclopes."

My mum still doesn't understand cosplay, after years of me. I was staying with her when I ordered my last wig, and when it showed up she said "That's not really the right colour for you. Black suits you much better."
Humm, yes. But this character has red hair, Mum. Heh.

My mother used to wonder why I did cosplays, that it wasn't "halloween all year round."

My grandmother told her: " Well be proud of her for learning how to sew! Atleast she has this healthy hobby! She's not on the streets taking drugs or doing other shameless things!"

Since then, my mom learned to love cosplay' my youngest sister (13) comes with me at cons and my mom loves to just watch the pretty costumes My grand-ma is proud of me for sewing.

Nana and I were watching Fruits Basket again today. She now calls Hatori "the one with the hair" and is glad I'm cosplaying "the smart one out of the three of them" (Hatori Shigure and Ayame.)

And she thinks Kisa is completely adorable.
