Going into the hole
Life is all about taking chances. Didn’t you wear this costume with the same thought in mind? Why can’t you just repeat the same thing in this case? You are already at a knee-length, so might as well go skin deep. With a resolved thought, you push your arm into the hole experimentally. It goes in with ease, and when you pull back, a thin membrane waves into place. Your imaginative mind can not help but wonder if this will lead you to an alternative dimension, just like how you watch in the TVs. Curiosity gets the best of you and you steps in.
You see a light at the end of the tunnel. You pick up your pace, the sound of your feet against the flooring echoes even louder. When you reach the other side, you are welcomed with an incredible sight. There are people that looks just like you — not the old you, but the new you. They move and work just like the people from your world, only you do not expect animals such as them to be walking on two legs, wear uniforms, business suits and such.
Some of the wombats pause to look upon your arrival, their eyes going wide with surprise as they take in your physique. You wonder what is making them so agitated, before you look down upon yourself and realization hits you like a ton of bricks. You are nude! The clothes you were wearing are hidden beneath the sublimated costume, and now you find yourself naked over the shrunken outfit, which has now become your new skin.
Your arms automatically move to cover yourself, your cheeks flushing with embarrassment. Some of the people who are watching you are chuckling, obviously laughing at your expense.
You contemplate if you should head back in and put some clothes on, or stay and deal with the situation.
