I am a Renaissance Faire performer (street character, not a stage show). I love costuming, sewing, embellishing and general crafty goodness. I have been a puppeteer, a massage therapist and an office drone. I really enjoy collections of random things and love the I Spy books for that reason. I am interested in belly dance, steampunk/neo-Victorian, Rennie-goth and such.
Things I like in themes for those "check your partner's profile" swaps:
Jim Henson/ Muppets,
puppets in general (like Madame, or European puppetry),
anything in Pyramid catalog,
Hallowe'en - serious & cool, not really the cutesy things;
Dia de la Muerta and general morbidity,
unicorns (holdover from my childhood),
classic horror themes (vamps, werewolves, etc),
classic films & stars (Cary Grant, Kat Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, etc),
Unitarianism and paganism,
belly dance, Phantom of the Opera, that is probably enough.
In music, I love techno and electronica, showtunes. I love Abba, David Bowie, and all kinds of remixes. Disney soundtracks are great! I have kids, go figure. I rather like Apoptygma Berzerk, Wolfsheim, Evanescence, Michael Crawford, Mr. B, AWOLNation.
In books, I adore Terry Pratchett (creator of the Disc World series) and am rather fond of Conversations w/ God. I enjoy good biographies, historical fiction and well written novels. I do not like romances...blech.
I'm a total Discovery Channel geek. Discovery, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, History Channel, Food Network and so on (or was before they showed wierd reality stuff). I love shows about real hauntings, forensics, etc. I don't often watch just sit-coms. I love classic Jim Henson: Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, etc. I have been a puppeteer, so I love puppets. My husband has introduced me to some new shows and venues such as Dr. Who, Turner Classic Movies and Elementary.
Labyrinth! I stopped counting how many times I'd seen it when I got to 200. Legend is a great one also. I love classic films: Philidelphia Story, Bringing up Baby, Casablanca, etc. My husband is a Turner Classic Movies fan and has really broadened my spectrum of great films. Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Kate Hepburn, James Cagney....sigh. More modernly, I like Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp & Tim Burton.I'm sure there are others. Just not coming to me now.
Sewing, beading, embellishing, embroidery, ATCs, inchies and paper-crafts. I like making resin pendants, embellishing metal bits into pendants and doing Scrabble tile or wood bit pendants. Painting, drawing (albeit not my best talent). I have made a few attempts at quilting... I like making accessories for my Ren Fair costume.
I really love kitschy keychains from touristy places. For crafting themes, I enjoy (but am not limited to) vampires, chthulhu, Dr. Who, Labyrinth, mermaids, octopi, fairies, unicorns, bats (the animal), dragons, ravens, cats. Oddly enough, anything kitshy or unapologetically tacky. I like steampunk, vintage, Renaissance era. Slightly naughty is fun. I'll add as I think of things.
I am not particularly fond of Kawai or seriously cutesy stuff. I'm not really into Twilight.
