My mom is dangerous with her new smart phone. We were out to dinner and she pulled up a picture of Thief Rikku to show my dad what I was cosplaying and my dad quickly became alarmed and said, "you're wearing THAT?"

I had to jump in and assure him it was a family convention and that there was plenty of security looking out for con-goers' well-being and if someone got creepy I could immediately report them to security. Whew. Crisis averted.

I asked my mom if I could wash my Hirato wig in the special tub she uses for washing fancy bras. PiC can attest she went through at least 4 different facial expressions before saying it was alright.

This was about 6 years ago I think. First historical ball gown I made using all real silk. Mom said (jokingly) "It's lovely, but how many butterflies did you kill?"

I said "Well, sikworms are part of the moth family..."

Her: "OK, keeep killing moths!:"

For my very first cosplay, which was England from Hetalia, I came down the stairs to show my parents the costume and our conversation went something like this:
Me: mom, dad, look, I'm England from Hetalia!
Dad: What are you wearing?
Me: well, it's supposed to be a British world war 2 uniform...
Dad: oh, so is your characters last name England?
Me: (laughs), no, he's the personification of the country of England.
Mom: oh! Then you need crooked teeth.
Dad: and stick some tea bags in your belt!
(Aren't their views of England just lovely? XD)

Another time, when I came downstairs wearing most of my Edward Elric cosplay:
Me: what do you guys think? Do I look like a guy? The top is baggy so you can't see my boobs...the pants are so tight though, you can tell I have curves! Thank goodness for the cloak... I'll look like a guy with that!
Dad: (blinks). You know this isn't real, right?

I think they're both fine with it, they mostly just find it entertaining.

A few weeks ago when I was working on my 3D Maneuver Gear, for my Eren cosplay, in my garage. My dad walked over looked at it and called it a "jet pack thing". Found that rather amusing.

I was in home depot yesterday with my parents looking for stuff to use for my 3D maneuver gear for my Attack on Titan costume. I was looking at pvc pipes when my dad found me and said, "I don't think I wanna know what this plumbing costume is."

After telling mother I was going to be making a dressvest, she was curious. I showed her Piko's design. She got excited. "You're finally dressing as a girl." She's been nervous about all my crossplay lately, and trying to get me to wear more feminine clothing in day to day life.

I didn't have the heart to correct her on Piko's gender.

We were driving home from AX this year with my elf ears still attached when my mom noticed that everyone one was staring at us. Then she looked at me and saw my ears and we were laughing hysterically.

The other day I was mid-way through a GlaDos make-up test when mum asked me to make tea for my dad. When I brought it out to him he tripped over his chair... Apparently he found it scary^^. Its more amusing when you imagine my dad as the big tough scottish guy he is...

Dad: "Wow, you look beautiful! You look like a hooker, but you look beautiful! Like one of those classy hookers!"
Me: "would you believe I'm cosplaying a man?"
Dad: "I'm not sure if that's reassuring or not."

My dad saw me in my full prince Lui cosplay for the first time.

My mom sees it like this. Sure it might be weird, but because I use the argument "Well, it's better spending my hard earned money on something fun than cigarettes or beer", she agrees with me and pretty much says "Well, so long as you enjoy it and clean up the mess, works for me".

In addition to my dad's comments about my Prince Lui cosplay

"If you guys go out to dinner and leave the convention premises, put on some real pants before you get arrested for prostitution"

My dad never claimed not to be blunt

When I first started cosplaying I told my mom to go online and look at wigs for my character. She had a question for me.

Her: What is 'Cosplay'? It's in all the wig titles, and some costumes too. Is it like, a company that makes these things?

Me: No mom... *explains the definition of cosplaying*

Her: OOOHHHH
