So I decided to dress up for 4 days this year!!! Well, the truth is that my work has been promoting Halloween looks, and work has been flooded by girls who are looking for items for Halloween. My co-workers and I just decided to have some fun ourselves as well! We decided to dress up from Monday to Thursday (Halloween day).
The first idea that I have was dress up as a school girl. Why? Not because I want to look young or want to be young, but to fulfill a dream that it is always too late to come true which is go to Japan for high school.
I have been interesting in Japanese culture since young and always loved how their high school girl's uniform looked like. Chinese uniform was just some sweatpants and sports jackets. And, Chinese school didn't allow girl to dress up 'cause they didn't want girls to spend all their time to chase anything other than study. While I was having short boy cut hair, big glasses, sneakers, jeans and t-shirt everyday, I dreamed about ugly ducking.
After I was 18 years old, I knew there is no chance for me to have that little ugly ducking dream come true. But I always thought that I still could pull off the look since I was still close to high school age. However, my dream seemed would never come true when the time pass by. And, I gave up that little dream after 27 years old.
Until this year!!!!! I had this one chance to dress up as close to it as I can. So, I just wen ahead and let it happen. This might just well be the last time that I dress like a Japanese high school girl, but I am glad that I did it.
A little circle is completed, a little dream is finally came true.
