I love your Little Mermaid dress - do you have a favorite Disney movie?
Aw, thanks! Pocahontas is my all-time favorite Disney movie. I totally wore out our VHS tape by watching it over and over and over again when I was little! A close second would be Beauty and the Beast.
What is your favorite part about the blogging community?
I love how even though we're all different--in terms of dressing, what types of music we love, writing styles, etc - we still somehow manage to inspire and influence each other in one way or another. I really like that.
Describe the adverage day in your life.
I go to bed late, wake up early, go to school (I take online classes so I'm basically at home or the library all day). In my free time I like go rummage around in thrift shops, alter & make clothes, and blog, of course! Other than that there's really not much to do where I live. My life is pretty uneventful, for the most part.
Do you remember what your first sewing project was?
The first thing I ever made (by hand) was one of those denim handbags that were sorta popular in the early '00s. You know, the ones that were supposed to look like a pair of jeans? If you watch the first couple episodes of Lizzie McGuire you're bound to see one. Anyway, I made one out of an old pair of jeans and wore it as a bookbag on my first day of second grade--my classmates thought I was so weird!
You are hosting a dinner party, and can invite anybody, living or dead. Who would you choose?
I'd love to have a tea party with the Bromley Contingent! ;)
How did you discover Siouxsie Sioux's music?
Well, it was more like I discovered her before I even heard her music. Years ago when I was a dorky little tweenager I checked out this book from the library by Lauraine Leblanc (it's about women and the "punk subculture") and she was mentioned in it a couple times. I looked her up, heard the music (Kaleidoscope to be more specific) and I've been a fan ever since!
Do you have any role models?
My mom! (wow, what a generic answer, right?) I always find myself hoping that I'll be even half as strong and intelligent as she is when I'm her age.
What are five things you are really loving at the moment?
The 'Halloweenie' episode of Pete & Pete, Vintage Polly Pockets, the first Nina Hagen Band album, gray lipstick, and Apple Cider tea. (kinda random but these are all off the top of my head! haha.)
What has been a highlight for you, blogging wise?
Hmm, I guess getting to make a tutorial for ROOKIE was pretty rad (and it wouldn't have happened without my blog!) I'm still OMG-ing over this. I can't help it! -.-
Who is your favorite JEM character?
I love Jerrica/Jem to bits, but, I'd have to say that Kimber and Aja are my favorites!
Do you ever have days where you just feel like wearing your pajamas?
Of course! But if I'm gonna be lazy with my outfit I always try to put on some sort of weird make-up (green lips, pink brows, etc.) to counteract the boring-ness of whatever it is I decide to wear. Or I just put on my hot pink boots. You can't look boring when your shoes are so bright!
