first of all, i hope everyone's gonna have a great time visiting each other and getting inspired :) i know i can't wait!! don't get too drunk tho :P
and secondly ... good luck with the giveaways!!!
5 degrees of inspiration ... what are mine :)
1. colors definitely inspire me ...
especially during my costuming days :)
~ i just heart the combination/s of shocking pink/lime green/neon orange/vivid turquoise ... and if they were fluorescent, even better!
~ on the softer side i love combining dusky pinks/heath greens/beiges ... i think this must be the most romantic combination (with a country feel) EVER ...
~ but if you ask me what my favorite colors are ... green~blue and every tone in-between!
this must be one of my favorite costumes ... if you take a closer look ... the psychedelic fabric is from a curtain collection that ikea use to carry. i loved it so much i actually made 4 sets (male/female) of costumes with them, and of course they were in orange, pink, blue and green :)) what else?
2. certain eras inspire me ... most notably the 70's, the 60's, the 1900s and the medieval era
~ i use a lot of 60's 70's themes in my costumes and in my shows (as illustrated above :) )
~ i love injecting some "hippiness" and some "vintage" in my art and crafts
~ i wish i could do more with the medieval tho :( ... well ... i did make a really watered-down court gown once :P does that count?
3. i am a deviant art & 3D fantasy art fan ... absolutely inspired by the art of this genre
~ my favorite 3D fantasy art site is called fantasy art design. it's a collection of many talented 3D artists' works ... a really awesome site. if you also like 3D fantasy art, you must visit!
~ deviant art ... i love surreal and fantasylike landscapes, dark and futuristic depictions of architectural structures and the female form. i am constantly in awe of the details that artists of this genre present in their work. but even more than that, are the concepts that they come up with and the messages and soul that go with the concepts. here's an example of luis royo's work ... white angel
4. britain inspires me ...
or perhaps 'europe' inspires me but i dare not say that ... yet ... cos i've never been to other countries in europe except for the UK. i found peace and joy and inspiration from places like the glens and lochs of scotland, the quaint little townships and lakes of windermere, the rugged welsh coasts and the vast and mystical landscapes of cornwall and devon. ahhh... even by the mention of these places sends a burst of yearning in my heart. lol! you can say that i took up folk art to satisfy my "english cravings" :)
5. movies, books and characters (the fantasy and sci-fi ones) definitely inspire me!
~ i swoon over characters like mr spock of star trek, edward cullen of twilight, aragorn of LOTR, severus snape of harry potter ... call me whatever you like, but the fact is, these characters inspire me!
~ i have read the twilight saga 5 times? harry potter 1,2,3 about 7 times? (becos these were my fav and they were short!) , the david eddings' series so many times i've lost count!
~ but the worst was star trek ... i gave them 5 ticket sales as an individual audience ... *sigh*
and these were what came out from my obsessions...
