My nine year old sister and stepmom are in my room looking at stuff and Rebecca(sis) Digs into my "magical cosbox of awesome" and pulls out my ace bandage.
Sis: Look Momma! This is what she uses to to squash down her boobs
Me: *facepalming and metal panicking* R-Rebecca sweetie leave that alone.
S.Mom: *smiles* Oh I already knew.
Me: W-WHa?!




That'll teach me to steal things for leparent's room and expect them not to notice *they rarely see me crossplay so I doubted they knew. It was an awkward day*

Oh. My. That's absolutely genius. I thought it was funny when MY mom would refer to the Shin-chan series as "Chin-Chin", but this utterly destroys it.

"So is that for your Sasuke dress up?"
"Mom, it's for Rainbow Dash."
"Which one is he?"
*facepalm* "SHE'S from My little pony."
"Since when did ponies wear rainbow socks?"

"A what?"
"Human version."
"Isn't sasuke a human?"
HAHAHAHAHA!! This woman is trolling like a god.

"Are you planning on wearing that in public?"
"Yeah, why not?"
"It's kind of short. Bend over in front of me."
*bends*
"I can see your panties, you better fix that."
"Well I wasn't really planning on bending over I was gonna squat!!!!!"
"I think you need shorts."
"NOOOOOooOooOoooo!"

Haha, these are great!
-My parents told me my Neji shirt looked "Kind of like a strait jacket".
-My mom liked my China cosplay. She suggested I wear it to a Chinese class end-of-year party (which I politely declined xD).
-My dad made some sort of "Eskimo-Ninja" comment when he saw my Korra. I thought that was hilarious ;D.

The first time I was ever practicing with crossplay my mum took one look at me, said "You're not flat enough," and complete re-did it for me xDDD

My grandmother tends to have the most amusing/annoying reactions though. Once I was sitting at the kitchen table making a cosplay accessory for a friend. She asked what I was doing and I told her, and she said 'so that's what it looks like?' No grandma, I'm making it look all wrong for no good reason OTL

Me: Hey Dad, you wouldn't have a problem if Izzy (my best friend) and I cosplayed a couple of Lesbians, would you? They're really badass Lesbians who save the world a lot.
Dad: As long as you're not making out with her I don't care
Me: I didn't think so
Dad: So what do these Lesbians look like?
Me: *Shows him Sailor Neptune* this is the one I'm being
Dad: Oh, you're actually wearing something feminine! I can't believe it took a lesbian for that to happen!

I recently mentioned my plans to cosplay Jane Porter from Disney's Tarzan. My dad assumed I'd be wearing a skimpy animal print sarong. I meant her Victorian dress. I guess he got the Tarzan movies mixed up.

My mom doesn't really understand it, so when we talk and I mention something, she just goes "mmmmm".

My dad on the other hand, he wants to know ALL about the process. "What costumes are you doing?" "How are you gonna make that?" "What is this made out of?!" It's pretty funny, considering he's a mellow, quiet guy.

My dad has by and large been very supportive and understanding. My mom, not so much....

At one point she picked me up, and i was dressed as madoka kaname and the following conversation resulted.

Her: "Alex, that thing is tacky as hell."

Me:" Its one of my favorite outfits mom, lay off."

Her, "I wouldn't be caught dead in that thing, and you want to go out to the store in it?"

Me, "Well, I'm a lot more feminine than you. I mean, I can count the time I've seen you in a dress in one hand and Celester (my sister) near as i can tell, only wore one to prom."

Her: "Can't you go back and change?"

Me: "Why should I? This kind of stuff makes me happy."


It got worse from there. She now says she has no idea how to relate to me anymore, and i've pretty much stopped talking to her altogether. I may not even go home for christmas.

I have a funny story but it's from my Older cousins instead of my parents, I still wanted to share it though.

My Mom: Kelsey (cousin #1) you should go to an anime convention with her, you'd have fun.
Me: yeah, we can dress you up like Tuxedo Mask! (My cousins LOVE Sailor Moon)
Kelsey: No, I'd want to be Sailor Moon and have a hot Tuxedo mask! Like you!
Me: Kelsey, did you just call me a hot guy?
-Later-
Me: OK fine, if you really want me to, but I get to be over the top and ridiculous! *Chucks plastic roses at her*
Kristin (Cousin #2): *arrives late* What did I miss?
Kelsey: *Grabs my roses* Kristin! I got Quinn to watch Sailor Moon! She's gonna be Tuxedo Mask! These are her roses, look!
Kristin: Oh cool!
Me: *Strikes ridiculous pose with the roses*

For Halloween/the Giants parade in San Francisco this year I went as Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I went with my cousin and her friend and my cousin being the trendy, wouldn't-wear-a-costume-unless-it's-scantily-clad type I knew she'd be embarrassed to be seen with me. I of course gave no fucks and went in costume anyway.

By the end of the day however, I could tell she was getting kind of jealous by the random people who would stop me to get my picture or just to have a conversation. She ranted to her friend at how she knew she should have dressed as a witch! XD

Me: *sewing a skirt*
Mom: *hugs me* oh mija (oh daughter) I'm so glad that you're learning so much about sewing! Now you can start making lots of clothes.
Me: If it wasn't for me liking cosplay I would have never touch this sewing machine <.<
Mom: I don't care as long as you can sew. Just don't break my machine. >.>

***********
Back then I use to dye my hair a lot because I love all the different colors and styles I could have:

Mom: Stop dying your hair! You're gonna go bald!
Me: noooooo!!!
*two years later when I got into cosplaying*
Me: *smiling like an idiot because of my new wig*
Mom: It looks good on you Diana
Me: Thanks! ^_^
Mom: Now see, didn't I tell you it was a good idea to buy wigs instead?
Me: *grumbles* couldn't you have stopped after the complement?
Mom: Just proving a point.
Me: Don't be too happy because I'm only doing it for my cosplay.

She thought I was kidding the whole time. I would always go fabric shopping and such with my friend (cosplay group, AKA two peeps) and then we'd spend the night at her house, sewing our hearts out..... and watching Spirited Away. But when we finished 2 weeks before a con we were going to (WHICH WAS CANCELED!!!! D we showed my family also.

She was flipping out. My Sakura (Shippuden) turned out pretty well. She was surprised but then was all like, "So what do you do in costume at these cons? It sounds suspicious"

She is very supportive, bought me a sewing machine so I could stop borrowing my friend's.
