"I strongly recommend you apply."
Hm. Well, this conversation does seem to have removed all the reservations I've thought of so far. I think I'll give the idea a bit more time to turn over, just in case, since as I recall there's still a bit more than a week to the deadline, but I am now leaning towards it; thanks.
"And whatever you have that you feel will make you dashing...please wear."
Heh, thank you; I'll see what I decide on. Probably not the coat, though; while I do like how I look in it and find it very comfortable in winter, the phrase "convenient and cool hot-weather wear" does not very naturally associate with it. Though, hm, I don't know; people wear hot (thermally, a distinction important to specify for this particular application :)) cosplays too, so maybe I'll give it a second look. But I expect I can find something good enough.
"Do you need the application link?"
If it's the one in your first post in this thread, no thank you, but if not, yes please.
