Here it finally is, my "Getting to know you" article :D
First some "basic" informations about me..
My username here is Safira-09, but feel free to call me Summer!
I´m 25 years old, but don´t look my age..more like 18... Since easter 2011 im a vegetarian, an odd day to choose that lifestyle, i know XD
I´m studying Library and Information Management in Germany, Hamburg.
Most of my hobbies include at least some kind of creativity, like making plushes, dolls, charms out of clay and fabric..
But i´m also a gamer-girl, who loves almost every kind of game she can get her hands on.
I´m very passionate about animation, always looking out for movies i haven´t watched yet and trying to get lesser known movies more known!
So i draw a lot of fanarts, make banners, post stuff on Tumblr, make icons for Fanpop and LiveJournal and build a website which lists as many heroines as possible :)
History is another big interest of mine, almost studied it :3
And now.. on to the questions and some pictures :D
1. Who was your favorite heroine as a child?
When i was a child there was no heroine more important to me than Pocahontas. I also loved Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, Amalthea, Cinderella, Mulan, Odette and Anastasia,
but i was literally obsessed with Pocahontas! :D I watched the movie every day i could, sang "Colors of the Wind" all day long ( maybe that´s why i love to draw? XD),
my favorite shirt was a dark blue one with Pocahontas and John Smith on it, i always played the jump from the cliff when i was bathing or in the swimming pool..
I just loved her and still do.
She was so very important to me, that she will always have a special place in my heart :´)
2. Who is your favorite heroine now?
I also love to stand around and just think about stuff
I don´t really have a favorite, because i don´t enjoy the concept of "rating" characters anymore.
And because i watch at least one new animated movie each week my list would change far to often anyway ;D
But of course i have heroines, for which i have a special interest :)
Esmeralda, Jasmine and Megara will always be very important for me, just like Pocahontas, Mulan, Jimena, Princess YumYum and SO many others....
3. Which heroine influenced you the most?
My holy Disney trinity <3
POCAHONTAS! I firmly believe, that if this movie wouldn´t have been made, i wouldn´t be the person i am today!
She taught me so much as a child.. to respect other people regardless of their skincolor or where they are from, respect for nature, animals,
that you should follow your heart, that you sometimes have to let go off things dear to your heart in order to do the right thing..
( I will write a rant on how people nowadays need a princess of every nationality to identify with later.. ;) ).
So yes, Pocahontas, also Anastasia, Odette and tv series heroines like Lady Oscar, Sissi, Princess Sheherazade and Sailor Moon :)
4. Which heroine is your look-alike? / Which heroine do you look like?
My childhood, right there!
Well, since i have long blonde hair and green/grey eyes with amber around the pupils, i guess kinda like Rapunzel..
Mixed with Princess Pea from "The Tale of Despereaux" and a little bit of Jane :)
Now that i think about it, i guess mostly like Princess Pea..
5. Which heroine is your "spirit animal"?
I need to watch those movies again
Excuse me for going into the field of tv series heroines again, but Sailor Moon /Bunny Tsukino is without a doubt my spirit animal!
When i was the same age as Bunny was in the beginning of the series, i was just like her ( with better grades, but still XD)
A little crybaby, easily offended, easily breaking out in tears, always wanting to sleep and eat, always dreaming about a great love...
But as i got older, i changed just like her into someone more mature and serious, still extremely childish, still wanting to sleep and eat all day, still dreaming.. but also calmer person.
Also Rapunzel, the interest in astrology at some point in your life, the many hobbies, especially drawing! And just her whole personality XD
6. What is your favorite type of heroine?
Annoying, childish, always hungry = Me and Bunny
Most of the times i like heroines who actually get to do some action themselfes, i grew up with that kind of heroine, so no surprise there..
But i most enjoy the witty, sarcastic, knows how to "trick" people/men, intelligent type of heroine ;D
7. The heroine/s you wished you looked like?
Yepp, bow down to Mulan´s awesomeness
I want a mix out of Pocahontas´ and Ariel´s hair, just blonde. Besides that..i´m kind of okay with how i look and my look-alikes :)
8. The heroine/s you wished you would be like (more)?
Cinderella! Even though i can´t really explain why..
Also Tzipporah and Mulan.
9. Your favorite outfit/dress?
She doesn´t get enough credit for her great personality
I´m in love with Princess Glory´s dress, Anastasia´s blue one, Greta´s dress at night, Giselle´s pink dress and just everything Odette wears :3
10. What (kind of) heroine you wish existed?
+ many, many more dresses and outfits
I would love some movies about the early german queens/empresses. I began to research them some time ago and they had very interesting lifes!
Beside these, a great story set in india or the rococo period.. costumes.... <3
Theophanu, the "greek" empress
Well, and that was it :D
If you want to know more, just ask :)
