CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: DRESSING UP FOR REAL

By Carolyn Oei, 24 September 2017

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?

Kawaii-desu-ne!

I don’t knock it

How could I, though?
The make-up, the clothes, the fake hair, too.
They spell freedom
From idiocy
And mediocrity
From whingeing and whining

Inadequacies; your own.
