Me: "Mom! I'm practicing cosplay makeup! Do I look like a hooker?"
Mom: "A little bit, yeah. Is that a good thing?"
Me: "Not this time! I'm not a hooker I'm an alien! You're as bad as my friends!"
Mom: "Then you're good."

My friends and I were talking about cosplaying Disney characters, and I decided to cosplay the woman I idolized as a 6-year-old: Captain Amelia from Treasure Planet. I was testing the eyeshadow, which my friends not-so-affectionately nicknamed "hooker makeup."

My dad loved it. When he was alive he always wanted to go to cons with me. He wasn't able to because of his social anxiety problems.

My mom helps me make my costumes sometimes. She made the skirt for my Kouya cosplay and the ears. She's helping me make my Fullmetal Panic! cosplay as well.

My dad likes to tease me about the pets from Hetalia, because I made a toy Gilbird that goes with my Fem!Prussia cosplay (note: he's gotten all this information from me, he has never seen Hetalia):

Friend: *Talking about in real life* Italy has bears and squirrels and...
Dad: *Teasing* And Canada has a bear and Prussia has a cat.
Me: Actually, he has a bird.
Dad: Haha, I knew you'd say that... wait, he?
Me: *Realising what I said* Um... yes. You see in the original show he's a guy, but there is a popular alternate universe to the show where the male characters are female and the female characters are male.

My mother is far too used to being my sounding board.

Me: So I was thinking - and you know that I'm always thinking of-
Both me and mother: -cosplay.
Me: *all excited because she's remembered* Yeah, I was thinking I wanna dress up as a dude in kimono, but I can't decide whether I want to be the fox or the snake!
Mom: Fox? Snake? Animals?
Me: Well, demons, but you know... you don't know.
Mom: Nope; go on anyways.

Oh mommy dearest~ At least she supports me.

Well I guess this would be a cosplay related conversation.

Mom: *comes in with some broken jewelery* I can't fix this! Do you have a pair of jewelery pliers?
Me: Why would I have something like that? 0_o
Mom: Why not? You have everything else.

Silly mom. I haven't had to seriously alter jewelery yet, I don't have a pair of pliers....yet.

Friend's mom: Hm...everyone's in the dining room working on cosplay...spring must be here.

My friends and I took over the dining room to work on cosplay all day long a couple years ago when it was about a month until Anime Boston. Her mom came in and took a glance, then said that. XD It's true though. The sign for me that spring is arriving for the past few years has been that my friends and I are rushing to finish our costumes.

Me: Mum, do we have a bandage?

Mum: No...Why?

Me: I want to get one for squashing my boobs down so I can cosplay as guy character! ^-^

Mum: You want to cosplay as a... guy? >.>""

Me: Yeah...I've been wanting to cosplay as a guy for some time.

Mum: You...want to cosplay as a guy.... o_o

Me: Yeah...you don't have a problem with that do you? O__O""

Mum: No...not at all, if you want to dress up as a guy; that's fine by me.

Me: Thanks mum. ^-^

Mum: Cosplay as a...guy... ._.

My mother is supportive of me doing cosplay...but she was a bit surpised when I told her that I wanted to start crossplaying and my mum keep repeating "cosplay as a guy"....I was worried about her when she did this last week.

Me: oh man...I hope that my boobs don't grow any bigger...I want to crossplay as guys. *talks to boobs* DON'T GO ANYMORE!

Mum: *looks at me and smiles* I don't think they can hear you, you need to speak louder to them.

Me: *starts louder* DON'T GROW ANYMORE!! PLEASE!! TT^TT

Mum: They won't listen to you silly girl, their only boobs and they don't have a mind of their own. XP

Me: Thanks mum... ;-;""

My parents are shockingly calm about it. My mom will coo over new wigs with me and everything. In fact, when I was putting together my Panty cosplay, this exchange happened:

Me: Mom, can you see my butt in this skirt?
Mom: *looks up from computer* Huh? Oh, yeah a little bit.
Me: Perfect! *runs back to dining room where we're doing last minute cosplay junk*
Mom: *shrugs* Make sure you're wearing the right underwear.

Well the other day I was talking to my family about my cosplay plans for Derek Stiles, Daria and Mei Terumi and telling my mom that I have been trying to exercise more and eat healthier and she is all like-

"Oh so now you decide to listen"

As for my dad, I tell him a lot of stuff. I think I make a comment about cosplay last night (not really my costumes this time but something in general that I read about, I think I was discussing some stereotypes and trolls and sometimes I share the comments I made in response), I forgot what I said, but he thought it was funny and laughed. xD

Oh I remember now, I was telling him the reaction my mom's friend had awhile back. This was when I first started and was making my Kyo cosplay and she was telling me about sewing tips and asked what I was making and when she found out that Kyo was a guy she freaked out about it. It was brought up because I reading a thread about stereotypes and crossplay and how I was making a new crossplay so I was discussing last night while working on the pattern. He didn't get why she freaked out either.

My dad's a big Whovian so when he found out I had some pictures saved on my laptop from when I was Amy Pond at my cons, he demanded I email them to him so he could share them around his office. He's always impressed and super supportive.
My mum's helped pay for wigs before I got my job, and even requested to wear my purple wig to work for Halloween. She had to take it off after an hour because she got "too hot and sweaty". I had to wear it in June weather outside in the sun for a whole weekend, and you can't wear it indoors for a work day? LOL
