I'm a geek and a feminist and a thinker and a dreamer and sometimes
a do-er. Working on being more of a do-er.
What I’m doing with my life
Self-employed with my own costuming company. It's pretty awesome. Taking care of three idiot cats and, formerly, one bemused dog. Being as much of a SJW (and I use the term unironically) as I can be. Doing my best to kick ass and take names. Crusading against the rising tide of opposition to the Oxford comma.
I’m really good at
Corsetry. I fucking rock at that. TARDIS corset, Iron Man corset,
period pieces-- I've done lots of them, and am always doing more.
The first things people usually notice about me
My breasts. Thanks, I grew them myself. No, I don't need to be told
about them. I know they're there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really love K-pop, and and took a pretty amazing trip to Korea last spring, so I usually have Mnet on in the background. Or HGTV. Or one of the Marvel Universe franchise movies. Or Doctor Who. (Five or Ten, since you're going to ask that eventually.) As for reading, if it has to do with the life of Shakespeare, I'm all over it. Non-fiction usually brings me to sci-fi/fantasy.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Feminism. Architecture. Language. How to improve my business. My friends. The novel I'm currently editing. The other novel I'm currently writing. Finding the right guy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting ready for a show or setting up for one. Or sitting around
thinking, "Wait, it's Friday?"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm back here again. I'm sure you can infer all sorts of things
You should message me if
You're a progressive, liberal, smart, open-minded gentleman in my age range, you're fairly local, we're a 85%-ish match, you are actually ready for a potentially serious relationship, you aren't going to call me "sweetie" or "honey" or "baby" or "dear" before you've even met me, your first communication isn't going to be about my physical appearance, you aren't going to send me pictures of your penis, and you can type in complete sentences using complete words. Yes, spelling counts. In other words, I get a lot of messages that seem to be written by a disciple of Prince, only without the brain-shredding guitar. I don't answer any of them.
Still here? Oh, good. Now that it's just us, let me add a few things. If there's something about which you're passionate, tell me. If something specific in my profile piques your interest, say so. Let me know you got all the to the bottom and read your way down. Don't just say "Hi." Definitely don't say, "How RU," cos I surely won't answer that. Don't send me the same generic, cut & paste message you've sent to 36 women in the past half hour. It shows. Really. And actually, if that's your modus operandi, we probably won't suit, anyway. Just show me your brains and your humour, because that? That's sexy.
