I had just thrown on my dave strider cosplay ( I normally have jet black hair, so a light blonde wig is a huge difference ) But had forgotten the shades in my step mom's car. TO get outside to the car I had to walk thru the kitchen.
As I walk thru the kitchen I have to push past my dad (* he was blocking the way) and I didn't want to break character so I muttered "'xcuse me, bro" and ran out the door.
As I'm putting my shades on My step mom and dad run out the house frantically yelling " Serah what did you do to your hai-" And then realized it was a wig.
I asked them afterwords why they had been slow to realize it wasn't my real hair and their reply was that they though I had bleached it. X*D

So I approached three different family members today, asking them to help me choose which cosplay I should handle first: Iris or Dahlia.

While most parents would probably choose Dahlia because she looks "normal," I love how my parents are totally awesome, point to Iris and say, "She looks cool." And my three year old niece agrees. I showed her the comparison photos two separate times and both times she liked Iris better. XD

Two stories.
First: Hm..my grandmother is funny. I'm 99% of the time Ciel Phantomhive. I have never and will never do the awful pink monstrosity of a ballgown everyone seems to adore.
I come downstairs the morning before a con and she looks at me and then a photo/screenshot of Ciel from the first episode. Her reaction? "Awh, what a pretty little girl. Why don't you dress like that more often?"

Second story. I wore Grell to class one day to prove I could and would. As my dad and I run errands later, the greeter for Costco goes "Who're you supposed to be? The Wendy's girl?"

I just can't win, lol.

A mother and daughter always come into the restaurant I work at because they know I enjoy making cosplays. The young 9 year old daughter is really interested by it and wants to start cosplaying. The mother always asks me if I think its unusual that her daughter acts that way, but I always tell her she's just creative and that I think her mother should support her. I honestly thinks its the most adorable thing seeing her!

I waanted to cosplay as Yoko from Gurren Lagann for Otakon but my mom likes to see what I wanna cosplay before I make it. I thought she would say " There's no way you're leaving the hous like that!" Instead she said, "Oh, that looks like an easy cosplay. you should try it!" She even helped me make some parts of it. When I told her I wanted to make the rifle she said, " You are not taking a six foot gun on the Light Rail!!!!" XD

Well it isn't as much as me cosplaying, since I really haven't cosplayed yet. It when my dad and I were looking online for ideas for my first cosplay. It was my dad's idea for me to start cosplaying, since I already been to two conventions already. And seeing people all dress up and into character. I was like, "That's cool. Those people are going all out and they look like they are having so much fun!" And my dad was like, "Maybe you start cosplaying." And then I was like "Waha..." xD I'm a pretty shy person... so cosplaying wasn't something I was considering about doing. I like seeing other people cosplaying, but it didn't seem like something I would ever get into myself.

Anyways I was looking at some sites for cosplay ideas to do and I couldn't really find anything I want to cosplay since most of my favorite anime characters are guys. x_x
Well this is how it went down:

Dad: What are you looking at?
Me: Cosplays... I want to get some ideas.
Dad: Oh that nice~ Oh who's that!? *points to a picture of big busted anime character*
Me: Dad! You prev... that's Rangiku from Bleach... O.o
Dad: Hello Rangiku!
Me: Get out.. old man. I swear you are just like Jiraiya... Pervy sage. (The only anime besides Hetalia that he watches/ knows about at the time, besides Sailor Moon from when I was little...)
Dad: W-what!? Aww... you never let me have fun.
Me: You should cosplay as Jiraiya...
Dad: Maybe I will... >.>
Me: Dad... I would die from embarrassment!
Dad: *troll face*
Me: Get out.
~
(Later)
Dad: Did you came up with anyone yet?
Me: This. :3 *shows character*
Dad: !
Me: What?
Dad: That girl's skirt is way to low! There no way in hell I let you cosplay as that.
Me: Why? It's not that bad.. there's worst. ;A;
Dad: No.
Me: Ah fine.. I got a back up character. *shows picture of Yuri Nakamura*
Dad: Not bad. She looks pretty bad a**.
Me: Yup. She's my favorite female character~ x3
Dad: Then why did you show me the first girl?
Me: Just to get back at you.
Dad: T_T

My Nana and I were watching Fruits basket again. She says

"That one who turns into the cat...he's most annoying."

I told her my friend was cosplaying Kyo and she can't understand why XD

Also, we just got to the episode with Hiro. Nana says "I'd put him in a box and tape that box up!" about him.

Recently, I've had a couple interesting ones. They may only be interesting because I know my family, but I saw the thread and thought, "hey I'll bite."

*Back a few weeks before the TDKR premiere*
Me: So I found the costume I want.... I know she's from Soul Eater...But my friend's don't care and I wanna wear her to a con.
Mom: How much is it...
Me: 94 Dollars..It's the wig and the entire costume
Brother: *Spit take* (No lie)
Mom and Bro: 94 DOLLARS?
Me:Yeah it's a decent price.

So as you can see my family was not originally gung ho about my cosplaying.

The other day:
Mom: Keith(dad's name)we got Lexie (my real name) A sewing machine!
Dad:Why would she need that.
Mom:To make her costumes.
Dad:Why would she do that.
Mom:Hobby
Dad:She'll suck at it
Mom: It'll take some mess-ups but she'll do good eventually.
Dad:Herm
Mom: *Turned towards me* I'm really excited we got you're sewing machine

Earlier Today, I was wearing a tail and ears while going out to eat/shopping with my grandmother
Grandma: Have you worn that to school yet?
Me:The ears? Oh no...I think they're against the dress code
Grandma: I was talking about the outfit.
Me: Oh.....Awkward...

Later: in front of Walmart
Grandmao you got your tail on today?
Me:Yes Grandma
Grandma: That's not a tail.
Me:Yes it is
Grandma: Let me see

So there I sat while she played with my tail in public...Needless to say, I picked the wrong day to wear a skirt

So I'm showing my niece pictures from Otakon. She stops a points to one guy and goes "I know him. I know him. Don't tell me who he is." Makes car noises with throwing arm motions. "Ax....Axis!!"
Me: "Axel"
Her: "Well I knew it was Ax"

After coming home yesterday from Fan Expo, my mom took notice of my two bokken and asked what did I buy. I just calmly told her I had these for a while, not mentioning what I actually bought at the con.

Tonight while doing a test run for Sherlock, I came downstairs to grab his cost from the closet.
Dad: So this is what you do at ten o'clock at night?
Me: Yes
Glad he found it funny though ;-)

My dad seems to think my cosplays look like musicians. Charden Flamberg he called Tom Petty.

Tonight though, we went out to dinner and I was half-dressed as Duke Devlin (sleeveless black shirt, headband, & Duke necklace) and he kept asking what was with the Axel Rose look. I showed him Duke and tried to explain, but he kept insisting that that was who I looked like.

LOL my mom does this with my wigs. She compares each one to a famous musician. I recently told her I really wanted a blue wig since I don't have any yet and she said, "Like Katy Perry!"
