Dragons and Skaters and Whatnot

When I was in ninth grade, I had a friend who wanted to be a comic book writer.  Jeff was a junior and planned to move to California after high school to work with his comic book writer hero (whose name I of course did not recognize or remember).  At the time, Jeff was working on his own comic book starring all of his skater friends (I hung out with the skaters, ha), and he made me into the character Bounce who could manipulate gravity.  I took a proverbial page out of his proverbial book and wrote my own extremely terrible comic book, making myself into the sea queen Lorisia, because apparently as far as I knew, comic books had sea queens.

All this is to say that is the closest I've ever gotten to knowing anything about anything regarding comic books. That and the fact that our skater friends watched a lot of anime.  And that's the closest I ever got to knowing anything about anime.

So terrible segue from that little anecdote into today's October Dress Project and this shirt that I found at Goodwill.  It has a silver embroidered dragon on the front breast and on the back, like I'm totes into anime or or dragons or something.

I feel like a biker or a goth or something alternative in it.  Although with The Dress and brown flats, I probably don't look like any of those things.  That hasn't stopped Scott from teasing me about it all day though.

End scene.
