While spending my day casually browsing the internet on things to buy I came across a set of robes (not the ones above) that I thought I wanted to buy. It was a strange feeling, I most likely would never wear them that often and they most definitely did not look practical for wearing and yet I still wanted them.
I decided against it ultimately of course. Seems my adult brain still has a bit of control over my childish dreaming. Still it was an interesting experience as it made me realise that due to my love of playing Necromancers in video games I wanted to casually dress up like one. Now of course cosplay is a thing and I adore seeing people’s creativity and dedication to their craft however my situation simply involved me wanting to wear it by myself without anyone else being there.
It was as if I wanted to do a bit of roleplaying for myself. Pretend for a moment that I too was a powerful Necromancer and that I was far more important than I currently am. I feel as though the more I enjoy the virtual reality I place myself in almost every day the more it tries to bleed into my current life. Still as I said I ultimately didn’t go for it but it’s an interesting predicament nonetheless.
I’m interested to know however have any of you faced a similar feeling of wanting to be like your video game characters? Be sure to share your experiences in the comment section below! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
