Meet the Cosplay Parents

(Image credit: Cosplay Parents

Steven and Millie Tani are a retired couple in Southern California. Their daughter is a cosplayer who encouraged the couple to try it out. And they did, for a Halloween party at Disneyland three years ago. On that occasion, they dressed as Carl and Ellie from the Pixar movie Up.

They caught the bug, and have been designing, making, and wearing costumes of superhero and Disney characters for special events ever since. Online, they are known as the Cosplay Parents.

The Tanis told Mashable,

"We are both basically very shy and introverted individuals, so when people started to ask to take pictures of us in our cosplays, we were first taken aback at the attention we were getting," they said.


"We [also] weren't sure how people would react to us as an older Asian couple ... but many have welcomed us and ... we are feeling more comfortable and have gained more new friends."
