At the moment for me writing isn't something that pours out, I have to condition myself and gain that certain mindset to conjure up poems for 'pick me up' and then change my writing style back to a conversational style for the blog, it isn't easy to do but here I am with another post to share. And this time I'm sharing a story from when I was young, a childhood memory.
My First Cosplay.
the practice of dressing up as a character from a film, book, or video game, especially one from the Japanese genres of manga or anime.
So being a 90's kid I grew up on Power Rangers, for those of you who don't Power Rangers is a show about five people who have the power to summon super human abilities and fight evil yeah just your typical 90's kids show. I wasn't massive on TMNT, just Power Rangers. One day I remember returning home from school to find out that my parents had gifted me a Power Ranger outfit, like a close to TV version, not just a graphic t-shirt like the one my brother had. I can't put into words how excited I was, I remember carefully opening the package and being super excited I was like 5 or 6? I don't really remember how old, I just remember how I felt. Powerful. I felt powerful, I remember trying it on for the first time and acting as though I could take on anything. I had the mask too. I remember walking to the nearest newsagent just for laughs to see the expression on peoples faces. I remember not taking it off for a good few weeks. I remember walking tall.
I was invincible.
