“Is it wrong for a middle-aged man to dress this way? I’ve always wanted to cosplay. I love all things ‘kawaii’ (cute). So when this anime, called PriPara (プリパラ short for Prism Paradise), came out, I told myself let’s do it. Of course I get dirty looks everywhere I go. But who cares? It’s only a form of expression. Plus, we only live once anyway. Might as well live life on your own terms. To all the haters, this is who I am so just deal with it.”
