(No I 'm no batman..,I know it's disapointing!)
I work in the film industry, mostly in Prosthetics ,and I have gone above and beyond to hide my cosplay side. (Mostly because it involved more costume and armour making, and when discussed, would lead people to ask me with a confused face why, If I liked it, would I not work in costumes all the time, only to be even more confused when I said I liked working both.)
I recently learned some HOD I worked for in the past knew, I was torn between complete panic of never being taken seriously again, and an opportunity to show people I had a wider range of skills I made sure stayed hidden all these years.
Any of you guys experienced the same issue? in which case, how did you deal with it?
