I was embarrassed and the outfit was falling apart but I got on stage and did a skit based on a pretty awful fan-fiction my cosplay partner had written and had a truly wonderful time.
I suppose that marks the point I decided to come out to the world as the fanatic I am and it’s what started the journey that’s brought me here being able to meet so many new people.
Tell Us About Your Tattoos: I have a full Final Fantasy VIII sleeve featuring Edea up top, Griever on my inner arm and Squall on my forearm, on my right shoulder I also have FITHOS LUSEC WECOS VINOSEC, which is the anagram Succession Of Witches and Love from the FF series.
My tattoos very much show who I am, I have been told that “You looked better without them” and “You’ve ruined your body” but those comments are small compared to the compliments I get.
It doesn’t affect my life in any way, just means for cosplay I choose costumes with less arm showing or I compensate with makeup OR just rock it out and not care!
