They think my hobby is stupid, and so all my other friends, but the public and kids love my armor. Atleast my parents allow me to make it, they say it's better than doing nothing like most people do these days. Another thing is probably the fact I have a job and can afford all my armor stuff, so I dont mooch off them ;p
My parents are supportive. They drive me places to help me get the stuff I need, but I still have to pay for it all. They think making the armor is better than just sitting around all day. They also think that the 3D models that I am making are pretty cool.
The only suit of armor my family does support if my stormtrooper armor, since they, and everyone else recognizes it. My Masterchief armor wasnt so supported since I had to go to many places, buy a ton of stuff, and then play around with toxic resins.
they didnt at first and just thaught i was just wasteing money on crap but then actually payed attention to what i was doing and saw i took my time and saw i enjoyed it and would watch me do everything like fiber glass bondo and help me out every now and then so id say yes lol
my parents were skeptical at first about the armor however my mom has gone with me to Starwars Weekends twice just for the stormtroopers there. they helped in aquiring resin and lots of clay for my molds.
