Athena Rosette first discovered Alter Egos when she switched identities with her best friend at a summer camp. Even though it backfired due to a lack of ability to remember her new name, there was a sense of freedom when she realized she could be anything she wanted at the drop of a hat.
Since then, Athena has been taking on Alter Egos in her travels, performance life, and personal realms. She noticed that these forms of herself all gave her certain abilities and awarenesses she hadn’t yet accessed within her normal state. Eventually, the lines began to blur as she took ownership of these different personas.
Wearing my costume is like a putting on a superhero suit. The makeup becomes my mask, the hair and wings my cape. I am transformed mentally, psychologically, and in personality. I am a Goddess: untamable, a creative force, sensual, magnetic, commanding. I control the frequency of the room I am in, design the energy of the crowd with the smallest actions, command attention, and entertain. It is inviting, joyful, confrontational, and above all beautiful.”
