What your parents think about cosplay...

Hi, cosplay fans. I like to know about what all your parents think about cosplay. Like my parents would think it's too crazy and wasting money... right now they are better because it's a good thing to show off your craft skill.

so I like to heard about what your parents think about cosplay.

For some reason, my mom really loves my cosplay! She is so proud when I sew something, and she goes on and on about how cute I look in my costumes ^_^ She hates it when I buy a lot of anime/manga stuff, but she loves my costumes!! ^_^ (Although sometimes when she sees other people's photos she goes on about how they are too scandalous ^_-)

I thought that my dad would hate them too, but he just gets mad about fabric all over my room ^_^ He actually complimented my costumes too!

I was most surprised at my younger brother who is a jock type who I thought would call me a nerd for it, but he said it was really cool and I should go into fashion or sewing or something @_@

Anyway I've found people to be pretty ok with cosplay! Even a guy I know who thinks cosplay is dumb still was ok with me after I told him I did cosplay ^_^

Haha, aside from the ocassional weird look or something, they're pretty okay with it. ^_^ I live on my own so I don't really get much input, but my mom was super helpful when I was making my Misao costume last year.

However, I'm -still- trying to get my boyfriend to cosplay with me... >.> Nnngh..

I think American parents are better than asian parents...most asian parents would think anime and manga are bad for kids, and they force them to stop reading it...that's sad, my parents was like it before, now is so much better....

oh and do anyone heard about any comment about cosplayer during the shoujocon? there are lots NORMAL people didn't know about anime and talking about us, I think that's really bad...I hate that kinda people so much....

I hate when people judge others like that. Never judge what you don't understand......

my parents are very cool with it. but I guess that's cause they both used to make a lot of costumes for halloween parties when they were younger, and also costumed at scifi conventions for a while there. My mom helps me with *all* my costumes and my dad sometimes helps with accessories. My dad also usually ends up going to most cons with me, helping me put on difficult parts of my costume and, when I was dressed as Lulu, helping me walk around, lol.
they complain about it sometimes, but I think they both have fun doing it. my grandparents are cool with it, too. They always want to see pics.... altho my granddad saw my urd costume the other day and told me I needed to be wearing a sweater. *g*

My family thinks I need to outgrow it and that my Emeraude dress made me look fat (it was empire style rather than a more flattering A-line, but it still fit well).

...My mom is kinda shocked that I'm starting to do this stuff, though she helps when I need it... I'm not even gonna tell my dad, and hide it from him as long as possible, for fear of what he's gonna think/say... He thinks I'm a loser enough because I'm so into computers and videogames. -_-;

I'll say again...

My mom likes it. Had to stop her on several occasions from dressing up like Nodoka Saotome.

My grandmother despises it. End of story. ^^;

My parents are cool with me cosplaying. They tell me that if I love it then it's ok with them. I love my parents. ^__^
