It's first October, which means… it's spooky season! Okay, okay, we don't really celebrate Halloween here, and if anything, Singapore's "spooky season" is the 7th Lunar Month… but it's still a fun thing to talk and think about with my friends overseas!
I was so tempted to buy those cute Halloween decorations in Daiso, just for fun, even if I won't really use them LOL But they really are cute, and maybe just the thing I need to brighten my work desk? 🤔
And the costumes! There's the usual costumes for kids, or classic "vampire", "skeleton" etc costumes that you can probably find in party stores. But what I really miss are Halloween cosplay events, which I have attended with friends before. I think I miss cosplay/anime conventions in general, what with all the amazing costumes and even more amazing fan merchandise being sold!
Throughout my interviews, I have actually met a couple of young ladies who are also interested in anime and cosplay! However, I belong to a slightly "older" generation of fans so I doubt I know anyone else besides my core clique. Still, it's always really fun to meet someone with similar interests and it's easy to get comfortable with them!
I actually often wonder if the gentlemen have any such interests… 😆 After all, anime and Japanese pop culture is so popular, that someone might even be a casual fan just because it looks fun or reminds them of their childhood. It'd be really interesting to meet someone like that, don't you think? 😝
