For those people who have more, "unconventional" fantasies, has it ever crossed your mind to actually try to dress like a character from you own dreams?

I half-a**ed an old costume last year for Halloween, it was a Truish soldier from the Western Union (too specific for any of you guys, IK) using an old military uniform and a large bandanna.  I loved wearing it, it made me feel closer to my DD characters, but wearing it around other people was awkward because they'd always ask who I was, and obviously it was easier to lie.

Other times I really want to dress up a Kennedian soldier (my profile picture), but I can't mainly because their uniform is 90% plastic, (though I hope for the commercial rise of the 3D printer to solve my woes!

Do any of you try to do this? Or am I just weird?

True xD

In my dream universe there's more gender equality, so the soldier's uniforms can be worn by both sexes. With your story though, I don't think it's too hard to get a Soviet uniform online though!

I sort of do the opposite of this. I will take pieces I already own, and then weave them into my daydreams. "This bracelet was a gift from the princess..." And then I'll have a big daydream about adventures in a distant kingdom, and being awarded the bracelet in recognition of saving the world or whatever.

It sounds SO silly, but it's kind of fun.

Hmmmm...

That sounds like something I do too! xD

In my story, one of my characters finds all my real life drawings (in the photo section of the website), tucked away in a house she loots after the apocalypse (my real life house). She uses those drawings to predict the future, and open a restaurant chain. xD

here's the full story if you're interested! http://wildminds.ning.com/profiles/blogs/my-most-interesting-charac...

I haven't really, but I have an issue when I clothes shop because my alternate self has some variance in clothing taste than me. Sometimes I buy stuff that she adores and I don't wear all that much. There's many fashions I like the look of a lot but I'm much more comfortable in neutral clothes. She isn't girly but wears feminine clothes. It's useful though when I'm getting into character sometimes.

I've thought about cosplaying my main character but there it be sorta difficult cause I'd have to crossplay and bind which would be hard considered my chest. But yes I've thought about displaying my character :3

It's a good thing I'm not alone! I also try real hard to actually get a 3D representation of them s that they feel more real to me. I'm excited for 3D printers, cause the first thing I'm doing on one is print out my main characters. But I also go old school and when I'm bored I just imagine people around me to be people in my day dreams (the reason for my C in Calculus).

Not very often, because my character looks exactly like me and usually wears the exact same clothes as I do. :-P

However, there's this one jacket I own that looks like an army jacket. I was trying to think of what the military uniforms in my character's empire would look like and immediately thought of that jacket. I decided that the military uniforms would look like that jacket but with a bunch of patches saying the person's rank, etc. on it. So whenever I wear that jacket, I imagine that it has a bunch of extra patches sewn onto it (and a bunch of medals hanging off of it :-P) and that I'm my character wearing the jacket.
Me too! For example, once I found an old Burger King toy that was this bracelet thing and I imagined that it was a vortex manipulator from Doctor Who.

They should make a cosplay event for ppl with MD! We can go dressed how we want, and have booths that can help MD awareness, that would be sick! :D

That sounds like an awesome idea!
