Hi all, Ellie here. I am a college student going for early childhood/special education. I have gotten a semester's worth of field experience with second grade, and as I get closer to my degree, the more frightened I get with finding a career. I am very pierced (nostril, septum, tongue, and lip) however, my piercings are ALWAYS out when anywhere near my school. I do not believe anyone knows I have any piercings or tattoos whatsoever, as they are taken out or covered up. However, I do have photos on my facebook where my piercings show. I also work for several conventions and have made quite a fan following with my cosplay (for those who don't know, I design and sew costumes for photoshoots). I have a facebook fanpage for my work, however, it is under an alias. Considering I have been cosplaying for 8 years, and since it has become a huge part of my life, I don't think I could give it up easily. If my page is under an alias, am I okay? Am I risking a future career keeping my photos up? Would my school district be upset if they saw my pierced photos online, even if I do not wear my piercings anywhere near the classroom? I apologize if my questions are dumb and I am in over my head, I am just overly stressed with both of these things. Cosplaying is the only thing that I have really ever taken pride in, and I feel like I can really express myself through my appearance. I was curious as to if there are other teachers out there in my position or similar, or if I am in way over my head. Thank you, all!
