So I've been out of school for a while. And what have I've been doing to celebrate my freedom? Drawing myself in the multiple forms I've taken throughout the school year, of course! Yeah, I don't believe that I don't miss school either.
You are most likely thinking, "Wow Rosie, why have you been dressing like this at school? That's weird man." But you see, my school is weird. In the beginning of the year, we had lots of special days to dress up, such as Spirit Week and Halloween, and while I usually dress up for spirit weeks, I've never been able to dress up for Halloween at school. It was amazing! But after we returned from our December break, there wasn't so much as hat days to look forward to. But I still have fond memories with these outfits, so I decided to draw them!
Mandatory explanation time!
The Dancer: Spirit Week consisted of a Celebrity Day, and with the growing popularity of Gangnam Style, I couldn't resist dressing up as Psy. It was mostly to entertain people and give them all a good laugh! But it was a hassle to get the costume together, the jacket was a women's blazer that was several shades too dark blue. I felt silly the entire day, but it was a risk I took that set the craziness level of my costumes for the year.
The Princess: So this wasn't for a special school day but my homecoming outfit. A dress made entirely of layers of lace with a large pink bow, sounds awfully girly for somebody like me! *sweatdrop* But I regret nothing, because it was a pretty darn unique dress, mainly because it was ordered from a webstore in Korea. It was the only store that sold authentic Betsy Johnson Tea Party dresses! (Which is the name of the dress, if you want to look it up. They are very beautiful dresses.)
The Otaku: Just a normal look for a normal school day, nothing to see here, just move along.
The Wonderer: My Halloween costume! I always wanted to do a Cheshire Cat costume, and when they announced that we could dress up at school on Halloween I knew it had to be a outstanding costume! So I spent a lot of time making ears and a tail out of specially ordered striped fur, painting stripes, and I even wore my red cosplay contacts thanks to peer pressure! But everybody loved it so peer pressure wins again. I can safely say it was the best day out of the entire school year man.
The Outcast: Outside of spirit week and Halloween, there was a Christmas character day, which very few people knew about. Instead of thinking of a creative character, I dressed as the very commonly done Rudolph. But I love reindeer, especially Rudolph, so I went with it. It wasn't too out of the ordinary, but it wasn't comfy wearing leggings as pants. Or wearing antlers for several hours.
Now you guys know that on special days I either wear skirts and bows or dress up like guys. I worked a lot on these guys, ermm girls, so I hope you guys like them!
