Did I ever express how much I love the idea of dressing up like an RPG character everyday? When I think of that kind of style, it's not so much about adhering to any kind of rules. I think of life as an epic adventure, and I am a character with my own skill set and potential for advancements that eventually lead to leveling up. How would I dress in circumstances such as the long trek to the library by means of bus, or the battle of the Final test at the end of a semester at college.
When I was 13 years old, I was introduced to an RPG by the name of Final Fantasy IX. After playing the game for ten minutes, I knew I would be hooked. I ended up beating the game, only to replay it several more times over the next decade. To this day, it's still one of my absolute favorite games ever, and it influences the kind of style that I admire and try to emulate.
