|I freaking LOVE Yae, she's a huge part of my childhood. I must have first played Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon when I was around 7 or 8, can't have been any older than that. I still have it. I remember learning about Japanese culture (in a slightly parodied way, of course) and loving every design and detail. I suppose back then it took me longer to play the game, nowadays I can finish it in a day or two, but it's still my second favourite game of all time (a close second to Zelda: OoT). I used to want to be like Yae when I was little, telling my mum I was going to dye my hair green! She's a role model to me, she's strong, independent and beautiful warrior, and I guess I wanted confidence like her. So, in short, Yae is very precious to me. <3 She's even a mermaid.|
Anyway, as I dug out the game and played it the other day, I realised how much it would mean to me to recreate this love in a costume, and it hit me. DO IT. This year.
My longest description ever! But she's very special to me. I want to do this right. <3
