Oh man, oh man TUT;;
Well…this is a toughy my friend.
When it comes to something revealing, I’m sorry to say this, but you truly are at the mercy of your parents TAT;; Especially because you’re 16. When I cosplayed Yoko, I was 21. Not only that, but I was working and living on my own and not very close to my parents at all TUT;; So for me, I just wore what I wanted, and it wasn’t like they could tell me no in the first place.
Now, I’m not saying that it makes it impossible for you, however. There are many many ways to make a cosplay much more modest and more parent friendly. You could tell your mom that you plan to wear her with dance tights(very thick, skin toned tights that are practically pants but give the illusion of skin), larger shorts, or a more covering bikini top! (absolutely doesn’t have to be as small or showy as mine or other cosplayer’s versions) You could ask your mom to be your chaperon that day, and let her stay around while you wear it! Or just sit down and talk to her about what you want to do in full detail. The more informed she is, the better she’d probably feel about it. Has she seen Gurren Laggan? You could even watch it /with/ her and see if it changes her mind haha
I can’t guarantee that she’d agree to let you :C
I can absolutely understand where she’s coming from. At a con, when you wear something even a little revealing, or is a fan favorite like Yoko is, it really does attract a weird sort of crowd along with the amazing awesome fans you and I love <3
You have to go into it ready to deal with a creepy or rude person or two and /always have friends around/. You have to be ready to tell someone NO if they ask for a photo that you aren’t comfortable with and able to put your foot down if they say/ do something inappropriate. (Not saying they will!! You just have to be prepared for it regardless ><;; )
See it as your mom just being worried about you because she cares and not because she doesn’t want you to have fun TwT/
But good luck! Yoko is an absolutely amazing character and really really fun to cosplay! If you can’t do her, maybe try for another character! :D
Or another version! (Yoko’s older version, her school version, her various STAR versions, her rocker version, her flight attendant version, THERES SO MANY OFFICIAL VERSIONS OF YOKO AHHH <3)
IF NONE OF THIS WORKS JUST WAIT A LITTLE LONGER, LOVELY TUT
ROW ROW I WOULDNT FIGHT THE POWER ON THIS ONE
Good luck and thank you so much ! Q u Q
That’s the plan! Definitely gonna try for it! <3 Q u Q
Ah! I know, I’m so sorry!
Anime Expo is always a very busy con for me, but it meant a lot that we could see each other!! :D
You’re awesome, man, thank you so much!
YES! I’ll be there! I’ll also be working with Hobby Japan on Thursday and Saturday at their booth as one of their characters! I hope to see any of you guys going to AX this year! It should be really fun!! ヾ(o´∀｀o)ﾉ
I understand, Anon, but I’m not very big on answering personal questions like that on my cosplay dedicated blog;; I’m a really private person and am really bad with things like this outside of just being fun and silly qwq;;
To clear it up, no, I’ve never been in a relationship with Yirico, we’ve only ever been really close friends.
But aside from that, dating/liking a person who you consider a close friend can be really damaging to a friendship and cause a lot of hurt and problems on both sides when one or both parties handle it poorly. So it’s always good to be careful with subjects like that. It’s mainly why i keep personal things and feelings to myself unless you’re a close friend as well. I don’t mean to rant or sound dramatic but just in case anyone has sent me personal asks concerning things that are more or less personal, this is why I tend to hesitate answering them.
Sorry guys ;;
Happy Birthday Noiz san!! ヽ(*´ｖ｀*)ﾉ♥
