My Life so far…
so this is coming to you from one of the Strangers on the panel but I don’t really know what to call myself… and this is my first time doing ‘this’ on tumblr (writing and the such!). I guess you can call me.. White-Noise, it’s definitely what I sound (lol) like when I get really mad or really excited :) Maybe then only the dolphins get me!
I’ll just give you a brief on Not Ur Average Stranger and all that-> Even as I look at the room around me I see a person, the Stranger. But this person is not a he or she, not a mother or father figure. No, it’s something that wraps you up and hides you away from the world. Something you can get lose it and pretend… I love fashion, it’s so much more than the clothes - it’s expression and so heavily emotional.. I actually get upset when people disregard fashion as “bitchy” or “shallow” because it’s sooo not.
REALITY CHECK —> FASHION IS DEEP!
I guess I’ve kinda fallen off the NUAS topic, oh my! Well, I love masks! Personally I spent two days turning Venice upside down looking for that one PERFECT mask! But I was in a really small mask shop (that you couldn’t swing a cat in), and I was snooping around the mask maker’s (if that’s what they’re called) desk and I found it! :) Under a pile of 7 other masks! A long black feather, silver trimmings, white mask with delicate black lace… I had to have it!!! Even now it’s beside me on my dresser. I always wondered why I loved masks so much until I realized I was hiding. As the song goes, “We fear rejection. Prize attention. Crave affection. Dream of Perfection.”
Is it a natural instinct to hide just to be accepted into society?? Or maybe we don’t realized that we’ve lost our individuality until it’s too late?? Not Ur Average Stranger is a family - open to anyone! Someday I want to see some random girl or guy walking down the street with a NUAS waistcoat or skirt and I WANT people to give them weird looks!! I WANT people to call them freaks! WHY THE FACE WOULD YOU WANT TO BE NORMAL! Normal is…. boring and it’s true. Normal is safe! BLAH!! If I wanted ‘safe’ I’d get insurance- ok?!
Well it may be 2.19 am and you’d think I’d take the rest of the night off and sleep but my honey bees - inspiration strikes at night ;)
