Today was my 20th birthday, and I specifically requested blue cupcakes in honor of Percy Jackson!
As a birthday present, my parents ganged up on my little brother and forced him to stand in the background as Percy. There was much manipulation needed, and "But it's my BIRTHDAY" was a great tool to be used. He wouldn't go so far as to change into jeans, or put on real shoes (He has sandals that he is standing on. Standing on. They're not on his feet at all.) but I took what I could get, and used the depth of field to hide those things. He also has a real sword that looks like Riptide, and I'm sad you can't see it. Maybe on my 100th birthday I will get him to cosplay for me again.
