Speak Up Monday

Jackie Law:  I’m sure you’re familiar with the idea of cosplaying, aka dressing up as your favourite fictional character. In fact, some of you might have even attended conventions decked in authentic-looking Kingdom Hearts costumes, complete with hand-tailored keyblades. Those extra zips, chains, buttons and other aesthetic knick-knacks must have made the costume just a little bit harder to make or wear. Still, they look wonderful and iconoclastic of Nomura’s design, even though the practicality of accessorizing might be doubtful. If you had unlimited resources to obtain an exact replica of an outfit from any of the Kingdom Hearts characters, which would you wear? Would you consider practicality, the current style trends, or whether you could walk down the street without garnering funny looks? Maybe you would even alter your favourite design for improvement! Let’s hear it! Don’t forget that minor characters have nice clothes too!

We like hearing from you, and we like it a lot.  Speak Up Monday is one of those occasions where we pose a question to you with no handicap on how you want to take the conversation. Be creative, be civil, be outspoken!

Coming up!: For the next two weeks–from June 20th to July 1st–our website will be hosting a guest blog that extensively discusses the Organization’s role within the series and their impact on the future story! There will be 3 posts each week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Don’t miss it!
