I work next to a game store at a mall. Apparently, today was the release of a new Pokemon game and two dozen teenagers in full on Pokemon/Anime attire filled the mall to celebrate.
For whatever reason, seeing these teens set themselves up for potential ridicule made me slightly nostalgic for high school obsessions and hobbies in general. Everyone has something they’re passionate about and if it means dressing up like a cute Japanese street kid than so be it!
I’m pretty ignorant to games all together but apparently the kids are pretty serious about their favorite gaming characters.
Just look at this total baby dyke explain how her Pokemon costume comes together:
Wow, what a complex hobby! I send this gal the best of luck in finding an equally Pokemon obsessed first gf by the time Halloween rolls around.
