I Actually Wore A Cosplay To Prom

A few months back, I made a post about what I had planned to wear to prom. I just wanted to follow up on that post to say that I did, indeed, cosplay as princess Zelda to prom.

I did the Twilight Princess version of Zelda. I chose her because of the sentiment i associate with that game. It was my very first Zelda game, which I want to think i played around 6th grade. That game sent me into a Nintendo obsession. It also introduced me to cosplay, which, I would really love to revisit the first cosplay I ever made (Which was from that game!)

Of course, I still love all the other Zelda games. Skyward Sword and BOTW are pretty high up in my favorites. But Twilight Princess is just, so good. It’s so good. I would fight for all of the characters. So, of course, I would choose to do that version of her.

Overall, I got the reaction I was hoping for. As soon as I walked into the common area, I was greeted with a simple “Kerri Bland.” This is perfect, because that means this was not something out of the ordinary, but rather something almost expected and ironic. It was not a big deal. It was just Kerri Bland. sometimes that’s all you need to be.

As for dancing, I found out I’m quite horrible at that. I did a thing called interpretative slow-dancing. Rather than dancing with a person, I got a group together to move in slow motion, and recreate some of the moves from the happy hands club in Napoleon Dynamite.

Still though, you don’t have to be a good dancer to have fun. I danced quite horribly, and had a blast.

The food was actually really good too! I was pleasantly surprised at how much stuff was available. The decorations were also quite nice.  I, of course, helped a little with set-up. There was a lot of work that went in from many students, parents, and staff. It really showed too! It came together quite nicely.

Overall, I just wanna thank everyone for such an awesome experience with awesome people. I can’t wait for next year! Now I just have to decide what I want to wear! I’m up for suggestions, but i’m thinking something Nintendo again. Maybe another Zelda, maybe a different character. Let me know if you have any ideas for the near future.

Is it natural to wonder how people hear your electronic voice? We all have our own interpretations of literature, and what the narrators voice sounds like. To be of influence, i'd love for my electronic voice to be compared to that of a gremlin. When you read my posts, read them in the most gremlin-like voice possible. The kind of gremlin that lives under a bridge of a dried up lake, steals everything, and has a nice stash of marshmallows to roast at the earliest convenience. Do what you want with this information :)
