Addressing The Dressing Situation

| NJ, USA | Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters, Theme Of The Month, Top

(I am around 15, and want to start cosplaying. My parents are pretty geeky themselves, but are very much against this.)

Me: “Mom! I want to make my own Halloween costume this year! Can you take me to the craft store to get fabric and sewing supplies?”

Mom: “No, that’s a waste of my time and your money.”

Me: “Please? You’ve seen the sewing projects I’ve done for Home-Ec. I can sew!”

Mom: “No, because you’re just going to make something from one of those Japanimation shows you watch.”

Me: “So? There’s a tape in your room of you and Dad dressed like Spock and Kirk on an Enterprise set.”

(Long silence.)

Mom: “I can take you tomorrow.”
