Outfits from 2008 - 2014
I’ve been doing this weirdo stuff for a long time. I bought my first set of big stompy boots and fishnet stockings (which were promptly ripped for effect) when I was a young teen back in 1999. That sure shows my age! A few years later in 2003 I would attend my first convention. I’ve been going to them religiously ever since. (Maybe I’ll post pics from back then when I’m feeling particularly masochistic. Sadly the chubbiness has been maintained over the years T_T)
It’s been a wild ride watching trends come and go. From watching the velvetxPVC goths of the 90s, to the mid-00s anime cons that were filled with Gravitation fangirls and singing Yuna skits, through to Inuyasha and Trigun giving way to Naruto and the heyday of EGL, and arriving at the present day where everyone sings the SnK theme and wears steampunk for no apparent reason. (Guilty.)
However despite all the changes, I take comfort in one little thing: though I might not recognise the costumes or the ships, I do recognise the squeals… yaoi fangirls remain the same.
