Telling Friends or Family About that you kig a-Misk Opinion

      At the end of the day, kigurumi is a pastime.

      If someone criticises, you can just reply with: "Would you like it if I made a fuss about what you do with your spare time?" :thumbdown:

      I'm glad you have that moral support; I'm the odd one out in my family and I just keep things to myself because they are pretty easy to read about how they'll respond.

      I'm thinking about how to tell my future children about my hobby, kigurumi. How? They will think that I am weird especially if I will wear girl mask and girl clothes. Kigurumi is a secret from my family and many friends. Should it be a secret from my own children?

      It's one of those questions where there is no reliable answer, and fueled even further due to the fear of the response one might get.

      If it helps in any way, I unveiled Kig Irina to my family just before my final convention of 2018: I only got a 1/3 positive response, only my father approved.

      My heart felt like it was a bout to sink into the floor on the grounds that the two that didn't approve, my mother and my brother (quoting Irina as scary to look at, deja vu), wouldn't keep a lid on their mouths. So far...it seems they did in the end do the respectful thing and not blabber it about.

      It just annoys me so much how, over so many decade and centuries, we as a species have become so intolerant.

      As long as you think of kigurumi as a type of awesome cosplay and it's not a fetish or something then there's really nothing to worry about. If you feel emasculated by wearing a female character's clothing, just remember that real men do what they want and confidence is everything. I saw a story some few years ago around Halloween where a dad dressed up as Anna from Frozen so his daughter could be Elsa. They went trick or treating and the daughter apparently had a blast. I would think, if anything, you would just be thought of as an awesome, open-minded parent. Kids seem to be much less judgmental about these things than we perceive ourselves or our peers to be, in many cases.
      Hi, reading all these posts gives me motivation to do kig, but im having a difficult time opening this up to my girlfriend. I really want to try this hobby and maybe she could try it too but every time im about to make a move i get so anxious on what reaction she would make. She loves anime and very open minded, she also likes cosplaying too. I really want to show her this wonderfull world but i dont know how....
      Any advice would be great help, Thanks

      Maybe show her pics of official anime kig stageshows and ask her on what she thinks about type of cosplay.
      I remember back in 2018. It was Halloween night, and of course, I want to take my kig out and mess with everybody. I used to have a Saya kig-mask prior to my cybergoth kig. When my mom and dad were having an argument about what to do Halloween. So when my dad asked me to come down to know who I want to be. That's when I knew I want to tell them about kigurumi. So I showed up, confront them, in kig, and watched my dad being choked up. Seeing how neo-liberal I looked as my choice of costume. At first, I thought I would be rejected and be some sort of pity as if someone has "come out of the closet". But instead, he was embarrassed as a father and looked into myself thinking, "wow I got him". So yeah, I had a fun time and creeped out a couple of my uncles and cousins in kig. I hope I can do it again for the next time, because I had so much fun in the end. But for the most important part, it is showing off how far I radicalized myself and just admitting to my family how kigging helped me out with my current life.
      MARS :P ^^ :D :/ :S X/ :rolleyes: :love: :cursing: :thumbsup: :sleeping: :evil: :saint: <3
      So yeah, i told my girlfriend about kig and it almost cost us our relationship. eventually she accepted who i am but it really left a bad taste on her impression to me. Right now I'm just avoiding opening the subject and just appreciate the art behind her back. It's very sad but looking at my finances and my current priorities it's just not possible right now. I'm just hoping to meet other like minded people here in our country or maybe someday visit Japan to meet Kig artist.

      cheers.
      I actually asked for a MuniMuni base kit for X-mas, and i was able to get one, but that's not the point. The point is that I told my parents and my suuuper close friends that i am into kig, even though i kept it a secret for 4 years, and i'm just glad that my dad has been really supportive about it, and he was the one that got me into this mess, and now i can't get out of it.
