Persona 4 was my very first game in the series. I happened to pick it up used after hearing some good things about it, and then I started playing it after a rough breakup. It let me get lost in its world, and I immediately fell in love with Chie. I used to identify very strongly with her; I think I've matured a bit since then, but at the time I had a lot of similarities with her: what's considered "tomboyishness," wanting to do what's right even if it's hard, and jealousy of friends. 

This wig was from the line (back when that was a thing), and it required very little styling. I got some cheap fake glasses from Claire's and painted them yellow. I bought the costume from another cosplayer, who had bought it from an online store.
