Shin Megami Tensei Cosplay

About our mascot Dionysus.

History and Analysis excerpt from Megami Tensei Wiki:

The garland and the pinecone thyrsus are Dionysus' traditional symbols. While the colorful pattern on his entire bodies can be interpreted in two ways.

The other thing that links to that body paint is the colorful patterns of all kinds of alcohol when magnified under the microscope.

"The Greek god of wine and theater. He had two births. When his mother died while bearing him, Zeus took the premature infant and let him mature to a proper birth in his thigh."
—Compendium Info

Dionysus is the ancient Greek god of wine, wine cups, wineskin, grapes, and fertility. The god who inspires ritual madness, joyful worship, and ecstasy, carnivals, celebration and a major figure of Greek mythology. He is included as one of the twelve Olympians in some lists. Dionysus is typical of the god of the ephiphany, "the god that comes." He was also known as Bacchus, the name adopted by the Romans and the frenzy he induces, bakkheia. In addition to winemaking, he is the patron deity of agriculture and the theater. Hailed as an Asiatic foreigner, he was thought to have had strong ties to the East and to Ethiopia in the South. He was also known as the Liberator, freeing one from one's normal self, by madness, ecstasy or wine. The divine mission of Dionysus was to mingle the music of the aulos and to bring an end to care and worry. Scholars have discussed Dionysus' relationship to the "cult of the souls" and his ability to preside over communication between the living and the dead...
