Ah wow thanks anon, I’m glad you like my cosplay! ;;
And haha it’s fine, I identify as male for the record, so you can use those.
Sorry for the lack of posts the past week and not getting around to some questions yet! I’m prepping for Katsucon among other stressful things in my life right now so have been a bit preoccupied! I will answer them and do a few more tutorials about things I keep getting asked about too once I have a chance! And will post Katsu schedules stuff soon ahhhh
Things went pretty well with the family yesterday! A few misunderstandings but overall everyone seemed nice about it, and I think accepting! So I can now breathe a semi sigh of relief. Let’s hope it stays good haha
Thanks for the support guys! ;;
A bit personal but…
On Saturday I’m bringing home my girlfriend for a Christmas party at my parents house, and so am ‘coming out’ to my whole family(minus parents who already know) and family friends. Pretty fucking nervous considering I hardly talk about anything too personal with my extended family. They are nice people so it shouldn’t be bad but, from past experiences, some people just don’t know how to accept this sort of stuff and so of course I’m a bit on edge. But, it’s something I need to do.

This group is so near and dear to my heart I have trouble expressing it properly. Everyone in this group is so perfectly cast it’s kind of uncomfortable - to this day I don’t think I’ve ever found a character that I can relate to more than Shadow Yukiko (which is kind of funny because I don’t actually like Yukiko….), and we did the group at a really good time in all of our lives. I still think back on the night we wore these costumes together as one of my happiest memories. I’ve never found cosplay to be so cathartic.
Ah no you posted a whole set??! A blast from the past, I wore these with my friends at Katsu 2010 we had all been obsessed with the Persona 4 game, had cosplayed regular versions at different times and when we discussed doing shadows together we all just sort of fit the characters “true selves” and fears more then we initially realized??
So this just ended up as us cosplaying our issues ok yep.
Doing the group itself was a blast and looking at pictures now just makes me think of fun times from then and also just with these friends even though a lot has changed I’m happy thinking of this time.
It wasn’t an outstanding or complicated cosplay or anything for me but one of the most memorable and meaningful to me.
And ahaha Shadow Naoto it stings me. Cosplaying issues yep.
Working my ass off to finish up these for this weekend! I’ll be cosplaying in the afternoon of the days mostly and have some photoshoots planned. I’m also working part time at the Tokyo Rebel/Kinokuniya booth where we’ll be selling Japanese punk and lolita clothes! Can’t wait woooo hope to see some of you guys around!
I GO WHEREVER THE WIND TAKES ME ANON
I used to just say I was bisexual but I guess I’m really pansexual by ‘proper’ definition but idgaf
what is sexuality??
Cute feelingsss because Dirk/Jake but
also I’m glad I have my own place now and Kitsy has been staying over a lot.
As a side note:
I’m really into fashion, it’s my major, career, and a big part of my life and I tend to view it very artistically at times. I don’t post as much of it here anymore since this is a general “everything I like” mixed blog but if anyone’s interested I also have a fashion and inspiration blog here. I do repost stuff from it here at times but that blog is a more constant inspirational stream from me.
