me as Riku from Kingdom Hearts
the left pic is really really old (spring '05), but I still like it (sorry for the blurry quality, it was also an old cam). The whole costume and the wig had a lot to go through, it was my very first Riku costume, I wore it for the Kingdom Hearts I Musical, somehow many things started with this.
It's old and fucked up but it deserves a place in my personal story.
I dont know how many bottles of hairspray went into this wig during the years. Everytime I wore it, it was a bit like coming home because the smell of hairspray, along with the light vanilla scent of stage fog, bring the stage feeling back. I'd call it 'the smell of Kingdom Hearts' because all the KH stage wigs smell like that.
The small pictures were taken in autumn '07 when I decided to pull the old thing out of the closet again.

In sweet memories of the past, as much for me as for Riku and his island.
