CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: DRESSING UP FOR REAL

How crazy was that?
From card games to playing dress-up
To collecting collectibles because you’ve got fantasy down pat.
It’s an alternative reality
No need to talk
No need to associate
Or even to say, “Beg your pardon; I’m sorry.”

The First Human
The Fallen Human
Pay it no mind; it’s just a game.
Read it in a magazine
Watch it on TV
Those round eyes, are they real?
I don’t knock it
How could I, though?
The make-up, the clothes, the fake hair, too.
They spell freedom
From whingeing and whining
Inadequacies; your own.
Happy to oblige. Photos: Marc Nair
