[COS] By Your Side — Jun Kurosu / Persona 2
Persona 2 makes me want to lie down and cry, which means it’s probably on my cosplay bucket list of 90’s golden era PSX JRPGs and I like it a whole lot.
Heather and I have been talking about a Persona 2 group since the dawn of video game time, and we were gonna make it happen or die trying. I love these stupid games so much, and it killed me that I haven’t been able to pull it off yet because I spent the last billion years of my life trying to (unsuccesfully) do Eikichi Mishima’s dumb wig instead. So when she mentioned that a few of her buddies were getting a group together for Katsucon, I whispered hell yea to the heavens and ironed creases into my pretty boy antagonist bestie pants and switched to Jun Kurosu.
Needless to say, a huge heartshaped thank you to all my cosplay buddies who welcomed me into this group — it means a lot to me that this finally happened, and I only wish we could have had more time on The Other Side together!!
