Throwback Thursday! Though this isn’t really too old.
Did this is Spring Semester for Storyboarding. A small assignment within our final one was to tell the story from a different character’s perspective. In case you don’t remember, this is about me and my friends going to a convention together and it’s based on true events. That made this tricky. But then I figured, it’s a story! So I created a purely fictional story from the perspective of the mysterious girl.
In a hotel bathroom, a girl is feeling insecure about herself. Right now she’s not sure that she can go to the convention but luckily she has friends to support her and remind her that not only are they there for her but she has every right to enjoy this convention to the fullest. So that’s what they go do.
When the girl and her friends arrive at the convention, they arrive in style! They’ve come cosplaying as characters and the crowds love them! The shy and reserved girl is gone, as though she is a completely different person full of positive energy and spirit!
After a while, the three of them go to the Anime Masquerade Dance. It seems like fun until the girl’s friends are asked to dance and she is left alone. Suddenly, it gets lonely and a little awkward for her.
As looks around the room, she notices someone at the wall sitting in a chair looking very miserable. From the looks of it, he has no one to dance with.
Mustering up her courage and rebuilding her confidence she had when she first came into the convention with her friends, she walks to him and greets him with a friendly smile and says “Hi!” He’s surprised but his mood lightens. She asks him to dance and pulls him to the dance floor. Though he’s caught off guard, he begins to smile and seems to be filling with positive energy. Feeling happy and proud, the girl continues to dance with him the night away.
Figured it would make a nice story. :)
