My mother now knows to stay out of the warpath when I'm on a time crunch. She's so patient with me.

Guess i should be pretty happy, My family does not really seem to care if that is what i want to do and most are willing to help me do it, i was only able to cosplay last year due to that help so i was pretty happy and with more help i am making more cosplays for next year.

I remember watching this one show where a father, a big Star Wars fan and Jedi cosplayer, invited his grown-up son to tag along at a convention. The son took a liking to cosplay, but he opted for a Storm Trooper costume. Even still, it was a very heartwarming show to watch.

I've started painting Hirato's staff purple. When my parents saw it, they gave me a look of "THAT's what you took our good broom for?" and then my dad said that the black and white stripes on the end made it look like something from Beetlejuice

"You're...painting yourself grey. Okay." -Mom when testing grey paint for Trolls
"Your wig head scares me. Go put it up." -Dad when seeing my wigs on heads, and then he put my Miku on....

And one of my favourites:
"NO! You cannot use your little sister as your cosplay slave!" -Mom when finding out I was making a Chibi-America, Chibitalia, and Child!Kairi for my 7-year-old sister.

My big sister who was acting as my guardian at this one con Florida Anime Experience jokingly told me she wanted to cosplay as a "big boobie" anime girl once. Lol.

Me: I finally figured out who I'm going as for MTAC 2013!
Dad: Who?
Me: Sode No Shirayuki!
Dad:.....Who is she?
Me: She's a sword!
Dad: You're dressing up as a sword?!
Me: No, a sword spirit, silly! *I show him her picture*
Dad: That's not a sword
Me: That's just her true form!
Dad: ......I am now on a new level of confused....

A couple of months after MTAC.....
Me: I know who I'm going as next year!
Dad: Who?
Me: Tobiume! Another sword spirit!
Dad: This might be a pattern, you might need help

Not cosplay related, but anime related:

Dad: *comes in to say goodnight* what're doing?
Me: watching swimming anime
Dad: what?
Me: it's an anime about swimming
Dad: alright, have fun.

"You look like a Rockette, but you are never allowed to show your father these pictures."
- my mom, upon seeing photos of my Zatanna cosplay with the new corset.

"...how did you breathe in that thing?"
- my dad after seeing photos of it.

jukebox - I'm just glad there aren't any corsets for men that are mainstream. The things you would see. *Shudders at the thought*

My parents, particularly my mom, are getting a good kick out of me really getting into sewing now. Almost every night, I'm getting help with sewing this or that. Though, there are kind of leery about the wigs.

I love this thread so many funny and interesting stories but as for me mostly my mother complains I don't take pictures of myself and then I have to remind her that i'll get pictures taken of me by other people that will look a lot better then trying to take one of myself with my phone.

Oh here is a question for everyone have any of you had your parents give you crap over rooming with the opposite gender because every year a girl stays in a room with me my mom is like how can her parents be ok with her staying in a room with guys in them.

My conversation with my dad about buying my first cosplay:
Me: "I need some money, can you start paying me to do chores around the house?"
Dad: "Sure what do you need money for?"
Me:" I want to buy a little sister dress, you know from Bioshock"
Dad:"Oh cool! At least you wont be dressing like a slut. How much will you need?"
Me:"150 dollars."
Dad"............American currency?"
Me:"Yes."
Dad:".....I have a better Idea. Why don't you save it for college."
Me:".........Ill ask mom."

To end the story. I finally saved up money to get the dress.

My parents are very happy about the fact I can wear my Dodo Chaplet cosplay to non-cosplay places.
