"Creatures kissing in the rain
Shapeless in the dark again
In the hanging garden
Change the past
Wearing furs
And masks
Please don't speak
In the hanging garden
No one sleeps..."
- The Cure

I'm not a model or a photographer, and generally speaking I dress up but don't wear makeup. So whatever you see is utterly unpracticed. Be kind. :invisible:

You underestimate yourself. You look great and if you had not said anything I am sure everyone would have thought you were a model. Honestly, I am unsure if you were trying to show off the mask or how hot the female was wearing it. Either way it makes one heck of a portrait. :D

Thank you! Oh, I am? :blush: I don't hear that a lot.
(Possibly one of the reasons I try to dress well.
Gotta find creative ways to look good.)

:lol: What can I say, I know how to waste my time on awesome stuff.

LOL yep you are :P About dressing well, ja I know what you mean :P

And \ it's not wasting time! :D RPGs are an awesome way of being someone else - something some people (ahmIahm xD)need in their life :P
So for me spending 100+ hours playing an RPG is not a waste of time but a nice get-away :P

Also is that a Venetian Mask? I always wanted one of those O=

YES 100 PLUS HOURS YES. A thousand gallons of yes. Way too many people seem to wanna blaze through a game as fast as possible, but I wanna train to level max, do the mini games and side quests and so on. I wanna do the whole thing. I haven't played it unless I've played for at the very least 80 hours. I feel ripped off when I play a game I finish in two days.

Ah, yeah, it is! They're awesome. They make me think of mardi gras, and then I'm all in a carnival mood. You know, I wish I knew how to make them... I should search for tutorials sometime.

It's fun to dress up. :invisible: Half the time I'm out grocery shopping, wearing some "costume" (for me it's just an outfit), and people are asking me if I'm in a play, or going to a party, and I'm like... no. Just like to dress up. Why not. Life's too short. :shrug::lol:

Haha I always explore all the possible dungeons do all of the quests, read all the books (especially when it's a huge universe with so much lore - The Elder Scrolls for example :P)and just do everything possible - it's so much fun! You become the character, and it just feels so rewarding when you finish the game.

I always wanted one of those O= I've been once in Venice (BLAGH it was bad though, was in the middle of the summer, 35 C and humid with a million tourist and people.. was bad..) but of course didn't have enough money to get a mask, but I swear next time I'm there..! :P)

Life's way too short! :P And good idea, I need to add it to my "stuff to do before I'm too old" list :P

Fuck yes. I played through Oblivion twice so far, doing all the virtuous quests the first time, and all the bad guy quests the second time. FUN. I loved the expansion, the Shivering Isles, all those giant mushroom-tress were... god, they were amazing, I wanna live there. I'm halfway through Morrowind now (actually took a break to play Diablo 2 for the millionth time).
Anyway, I'm showing my sister how to play Diablo 2, and she's driving me crazy. She goes through a dungeon, and heads straight for the exit. She doesn't wanna explore, she won't open all the chests. She just... doesn't know how to appreciate a game, at all. :no:
If I don't do everything possible in a game, it doesn't feel like I completed it. I finished it, but didn't complete it.

Wow, you've been to Venice? It looks like such a beautiful place, and (not to ramble or anything but) I'm reading through the entire Vampire Chronicles series, by Anne Rice, and a couple of the characters live in Italy from about 200BC until the renaissance. The way she describes the cities, Rome, Florence, and especially Venice... it sound like somewhere I could happily live for a million years. Prolly ruined by the tourist industry by now, but no more so than any other city.

I'm CRAP with buying souvenirs. I don't think I bought a single thing, any time I've travelled. Life's making up for it now - I have a reasonable number of friends from all over, and they send me little presents constantly.

5 for me :D Now I can't really play it any more since I know half the script (dialogue) by heart xD 3 of these times with a Stealthy Khajiit or Bosmer and then with a Warrior or a Mage type of class but I didn't like it :P STEALTH FOR THE WIN :D (always fun to shoot an arrow at the back of a monster's head or be so fast and acrobatic you can jump to the sky :P) But yea - finishing without truly finishing is not fun, and I prefer doing it over 1 or 2 campaigns then a million and then complete the gaps in knowledge with each one :P

I've been in Venice but as I said it was a bad first impression (I did though, got to speak some Italian, saw a guy making Ravioli and a shirt that says - Don't be Jesus, Take a Gondola which I also couldn't buy because of budget issues :( but otherwise it wasn't that fun because of the load of people and the heat, but it's a truly beautiful place :P (Italy <3 I wish I could speak fluent Italian and live there! I love the language and the culture, and I've got temper problems and sometimes over-use body language, so I'm stereotypically matching - at least for that half of the stereotype, I'm not really a ladies man ^_^ :P

I'm going to Italy again in three weeks, not Venice though, to the Lombardy area, you want a souvenir? :D

Oh, thank you. Very good point. I love to dress up, but I think the main reason I did it this way is just... if I don't personalise the way I look, then I can't take credit for it, and looking a certain way is completely irrelevant to who I am. I'm on an art site, and I want people to judge me based purely on a skill I worked hard to develop. My drawings are my real identity. So yeah, I'll put a photo of myself up, but I'll be in a mask and wig, with my heavily made-up eyes closed. Good luck seeing me. :lol:
