Holy shit, apparently I can still super pull off being a cute girl when I want to. Playing a woman in a larp is a weirdly affirming experience, because I’m putting on femininity as a costume, as something fun that I don’t usually do. And when I looked in the mirror, I was so delighted and happy, but not in a way that makes me feel I should always look like this.
It’s like putting on a super cool vampire costume and then being like, “haha I’d make a good vampire.” You don’t actually, like, want to be a vampire, but it’s fun for a little bit.
Dressing up like a cute girl when I’m not one is fun for a little bit.
