Cosplay made in Japan
Why do people dress up?
A desire to pretend and to change. There is the surface, and then there is the real us.
Wearing the same clothes allows us to identify with others, a comfort that is easy to come by.
Creating an appearance has become the norm, but in the process I've lost in understanding who I am.
On the other side however, there are still struggles to discover the real us.
There is always a strange mix to our existence: the facade and the reality...the nude and the clothes.
What are we trying to dress up?
Are we really enjoying dressing up?
Well, I think I am enjoying it.
It is human nature to enjoy the duality of the façade and that what lies beneath it.
