Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

laura_sm asked me:

1. Where/when/how did your enjoyment of costumes, outfits, and dressing up begin? Have you always enjoyed playing with clothing?

Really, I never outgrew playing dress-up as a kid. It's a big part of what drew me into being a goth, and certainly what kept me in the scene after I stopped being an angstbunny.

2. If you had all the time/money in the world, and all the skills, what piece(s) of clothing would you create?

Wow. Well, there's a few items here, and I can think of dozens more. Had I time, budget and skill I'd probably come out with a full line of weird every season.

3. If you suddenly had an unexpected day off, what would you do with it?

If it were just me with the day off, probably spend the day playing games or wasting time online, maybe with a long mid-day gym visit.

4. What would be your perfect job?

Making stuff. But, not always the same stuff. Coding, writing, costuming, etc. - it's all about creating something. Practically speaking, something where I can write code with occasional more visual stuff (CSS, web design, etc.) at a place where they don't care what I wear, some place within TTC range would be lovely.

5. Where does the nickname curgoth come from?

Curgoth was a super-villain for a comic that a friend and I were going to put out in the 90s. It was a sort of Image-style X-men ripoff. Curgoth (originally pronounced Sur-Gawth) was a black-skinned demon with clawed fingers and fire breath. I started using the name on BBSes, and later the internet, when I decided that "Blood Razor" (our super teams' Wolverine ripoff) was too ridiculously metal for a nickname. The pronunciation change to Kur-Goth came from a kid at a club in KW in 97 or 98. By the time I got around to thinking about it, I'd been using the name for quite a while, and I've never run into anyone else using it.

I hear resistance is futile. Also, I have not the energy to resist.

Good luck thinking up questions for me. That don't all involve monkeys.
