for anything that makes the ❤ faster!
What is dokitude?
"doki-doki" is the japanese sound effect for the heart when it starts being faster, so we decided to name our brand and store after that. It's the attitude of approaching life with passion and joy, and making sure that you put your ❤ in whatever you do!
"be whatever you want to be, just make sure it's GLORIOUS!"
Josh and I are a mad combination of dreamers and schemers and makers and creators, and our creative outlet has been in cos-making together. It has been a wonderful to face crazy challenges and overcome them to realize the images we see on the screen.
Cosplay is not about simply dressing up, its about dreams and being anything and whoever I want to be. It’s about being larger then life, and its about being more then who I am every day.
I’ve never approached cosplay as a masquerade, in the words of Phantom of the Opera “hide your face, so the world will never find you”–no cosplay for me is being the person I WANT to be, its the fact that I CAN BE literally anyone. It’s about being the best incarnation of who you are: beautiful, kind, heroic—but above all else it is I think about putting your ♥ in everything you do
