💫 Model: @abandoned_beeauty 🌙 A lot of you have asked me about this whole series. I got the idea this past summer when I started to decline into a really bad mental state. The feeling of loneliness and not having a place to fit in started to really wear on me. I don't feel comfortable anywhere. I feel worthless everywhere. People overlook me, shit talk me, try to tear me from where I am constantly. Most are strangers. The people who DO know me typically use me. They dont know I exist unless I have something to offer, or if I'm in the spotlight for something. If neither of those exist, nor do I. I feel like looking for love, trust, friendship and support from people is near impossible. Most of the time I feel like I have no one. As independent as I’d like to think I am, it terrifies me. I saved up for months and bought the suit (finally) this past December. Other than the suit, nothing has really changed in this series. However, what it means to me did. It's walking into a space and feeling like an outsider, but trying to understand it. The whole going-to-these-kinds-of-spaces thing to me isnt for trophy purposes of where I've been. Mentally, for some reason, I need it. It makes me feel better. I can see into peoples' lives and think about who they were. Where are they? Why did they leave? Would they have been nice to me? Could we have been friends? I guess it's one of the closest things I have to a religion, because the adventure of it all certainly makes me feel better like nothing else can. Whoever is in the suit is basically a reflection of myself, and maybe how the world will be one day. We'll all be gone, left for some stranger to wander our spaces and not imagine our faults and shortcomings. To just sit there and wonder who we were and hopefully think nothing but the best of us. I guess I just feel like a stranger in a strange world, left to try and figure things out but not ever fully understanding.
Now that it went from being arctic to immediately hot as balls it’s got me thinking dang it’s almost underwater season hollaaaaa (must like hiking or kayaking and mountains and really fucking cold water because sorry it’s the best conditions for this shit)
Where has my passion gone? Has it been carried off by some lonely driver in a line of florescent light? Has it been blurred together in ribboned patterns on the night? Along the stretch of some unnamed plane, we began again. I saw in your face that we’re the same when we began again. A multiverse of fuchsia and violet surrenders to blackness now.
