Since meeting my master, we have created and built up quite a collection of different 'characters', each with their own costume, who we then dress up as and take on a different identity. Among these, we have Puppy of course (a little border collie puppy, as in my av) and Pussy (a scruffy black and white alley cat, who harasses poor Puppy). Then we have my 'little soldier', a nervous young boy questioning his sexuality, a naughty little cat burglar and his victim, another, really nasty burglar, a gangster's wife and henchman, a vile little chav bitch, a very classy but nasty older woman who doubles as a nurse, the silent, anonymous 'Ghost', the kind but firm teacher and his disobedient pupil, a prostitute and her client...and now we're discussing adding a freedom fighter and maybe also a terrorist to that list. One of the best things about these characters, is that we don't just use one once and never again. Each one gets used as regularly as we can do so, with enough space in between to keep that character fresh, and using another in the meantime. We have become quite attached to these characters, so much so that we feel strangely sad about the fact that one of these will, in a way, be meeting their end; the little cat burglar, who has twice broken into a man's home and forced him to question his sexuality, but is about to be unmasked and exposed as being female. And we have no idea if it's normal to feel this way, or if we're just being silly With all these characters (and no doubt there are some I've forgotten to mention!) we could probably start up some kind of warped BDSM sketch show or something! Does anyone else share our passion for adopting new personas?
