Each Character has its own symbol in life. We have Edward Scissor hands, Kim, and the Townspeople. Edward’s Scissor hands Shown below symbolize ourselves and our desire to want something that we can’t have. Think about a time were you couldn’t have something that you wanted it so bad you would do anything for but it’s impossible to have. As a child I wanted to fly like superman. Yes, a dumb but imagine the possibilities that are capable of doing if I was about to fly. Edward himself is us trying to be accepted be people and want to become more than what people think we are. His pain of not being able to love someone threw physical things like holding hands can compare too many of us who can’t talk to the ones we dream of. Kim “shown below” herself is the one we desire to have. To me she is my super power that I can’t touch. She symbolizes everyone’s wants and needs. The Towns people are the things that stop us. They are the ones who stab you in the back and doubt you of your dreams and goals.
