Why do you like Steampunk?
I love the open-ended creativity of the whole movement. The DIY aspect is also very appealing.
Favorite bit of clothing:
My pinstripe vest....right now.
My clockwork fish.
Cake or Pie?:
Key Lime, baby! All the way!
Best music in the world is?:
Currently, Abney Park, The Decembrists, Modest Mouse, etc. etc. etc.
Do you have a Persona?:
If so who are they and what's their story:
Had a "starter" persona for DragonCon: Auntie Social, part of a gang of London villains known as the Shankhill Butchers. I'm sure this will only be one of many characters I'll try on until I settle. Sorta persona du jour.
Now post photos so we know what you look like and can hug you when we see you on the street: ( Portrait of a villain.Collapse )
Are you a good egg?:
Hard-boiled and sometimes a bit scrambled but generally a good 'un.
Pimp your stuff:
I dabble in haberdashery and jewelrymaking. I've made sales from my weaving and had one piece in a museum exhibition at the Thomas Center in Gainesville. Recently, I had a few of my hand-painted game boards in another exhibition at the same Gallery.
I guess my childhood Steampunk hero was Captain Nemo. (Verne was one of my favorite authors.) I liked the way he was portrayed in the League
but I liked the re-interpretation of Dorian Gray even better.
