People ask why I dress the way I do...with the gloves, the backpack, and the flannels.
Well... here’s the answer..every single piece of attire has it’s own reason. 3 years ago I would’ve though nothing of them, but now I realize that they are a part of who I am, they’re not just the type of clothes I can just take off. I started wearing gloves around the beginning of 10th grade. I was an antisocial. I hated people. Hatred and selfishness invaded my mind like a virus. But back to the point... I was at the mall, and decided to go to Oakley with my mother, and for some reason I can’t explain, my eyes went straight to some gloves, and decided to buy them. After that I wore them everyday, and to people it seemed..not normal, and often ask me: Why the gloves? Do you have a bone fracture? I always answered: “Because I like them”. I had a rebellious phase back then. For some reason I felt like I couldn’t be like everyone else, given that I hated people back then, so I guess that’s what inspired it at the beginning. The flannels came before the gloves. 3 months later, I saw an advertisement about an anti-theft backpack created by Mark Ryden, and I thought that could be my new school pack, so I bought it, and when it was delivered it seemed smaller than it looked like in the pictures, so I couldn’t wear it for school purposes, but for some reason I wanted to try it out, so I brought it to school. People said many things. What was weird is that I didn’t want to take it off even when I was seated on the desk. I would take it everywhere without taking it off. Then Casual day came, and I decided to wear the gloves, the flannel and the new backpack. I returned from school only to find myself in front of a mirror, and then I thought: “Huh?Maybe I should dress like this more often.” It’s funny because between that time and this present day I’ve never worn anything else in public. It made me happy, I felt whole, all hatred, malice, and selfishness simply disappeared after that day I saw myself in the mirror. I started talking to people again, and I loved it. I am happy now. They represent...my happiness, and my inner peace. The creation of Erik Sins. Welp now you know😂.
