Somehow, when my university friends find out that I am a cosplayer, Half of them will ask

"How much are you paid to cosplay?"
"Did you get to keep the costume?"

I find that it is weird that they assume I've been paid to cosplay.

They also seem to have some strange cosplay misconceptions like

Cosplayers are weirdos and crazy people
All Cosplayers like Japan and want to live in Japan
Every character is from an Anime or Manga
Girls only allowed to cosplay girls and guys only allowed to cosplay guys

Just wondering if anyone met with such questions?

Care to share your experience?

That's some weird questions to ask of you ^^;;;
Nobody from my side know about me being a cosplayer yet so can't answer you.

But for my mom who recently know about it, all she asked was :
1 ) Why do you want to do that (cosplay) ?
2 ) Is it expensive?

Aha yup, I do get that question before, from my office mates, as they thought it's some sort like my part time job *facepalm*

"Where you buy your costumes ah?"


"Expensive not?" 


"Your hair real or you dye?"


"Yerr... Why you dress like this?"


"Cosplay? Smlj?"
