I concluded, that most of us here is familiar with the story of Narcissus. He was a hunter that bore beauty and physique perfection. All his life he was oblivious of this amazing gift; until one day. He was hunting – following a trail of rare diurnal owls- he saw a beautiful man on the ruffling surface of the stream, abide by the cascades. He leaned down to take a more vivid and closer look; it was his reflection, and he finally saw it for the very first time. He fell in love with himself- with his reflection in particular- and waited for it to love him too and be with him forever. He spent several days gazing down; neglecting his thirst and hunger. He died eventually after being eaten by deities by the stream.

I want to channel Narcissus’ story in my Halloween costume, but I don’t want to oblige to the descriptions given to him in Greek Mythology; instead I want him to be part of me and myself part of him. I, Jann Christian Lim, as Narcissus in this look, is a prince- since I am a son of a politician in reality- who never partake to look at my reflection for the fear of being too interconnected with it that might be the reason for my insane conceitedness. Mirrors were forbidden in my kingdom, and whoever brought one must be send to jail and the mirror brought should be shattered into pieces. One day a Mirror fairy passed by the kingdom and did not like what she saw. She collected all the broken pieces of mirrors and turned them into jewelry and was placed on my body while I was sleeping. She also created a large one by the headboard to turmoil me more.

Morning came, and the sun shone at its brightest; as I open my eyes I saw a beautiful man on my headboard, necklace, bracelet and ring; and I fell in love with him- my reflection. The fretful day had arrived and as its cause, I was able to be unconscious towards my thirst, speech and hunger. All I was doing was to stare at my jewelry and waited for the man in it to come out and love me forever. Eventually I died.

I want to portray y’all a message, that there is no harm in loving ourselves, in fact this is the GREATEST LOVE OF ALL. But we must all put in our minds that no individual is an island, all of us need to communicate, care and love each other. Being selfish and conceited will give us negative circumstances that may be marred when we stop being how we are.
