Knowing Me, Knowing You! (Forum Game)
Howdy All!

Seeing as the General Forum is pretty dead all the time, I thought we could do a bit of a Forum Game to help get to know one another and well...get some activity in here! XD

The game is simply.

Simply post an interesting fact, or funny story about yourself. Doesn't have to be related to Cosplay but it does have to be unique/interesting!

Here is mine:

I was in an episode of "The Bill" XD.

I was a background character and was dressed as a chav. I was supposed to kick a ball along the ground but I kept kicking it off camera so they told me to carry it instead. I got my lunch and train fare paid for and took home a tidy 40 quid, not bad when your 14.

Tell me something interesting about yoooouuuu~

3 things about me....
A man in Turkish Cyprus offered my mum camels and half a bar for my hand in marrage; Terry Patchett associates me with potatoes; and I prefer cheese to chocolate.

Um...Got offered jobs teaching English as a Foreign Language in both Peru and Japan.

Opposite sides of the globe FTW LOL

Mark's not the only one who's been on telly... when I was 13 I was the first person to appear on a show about fans of the X-Files. Dressed as Dana Scully.

So, *technically* I've been cosplaying for... 12 years...

I haven't been on TV... but I've randomly sung to famous people... well.. famous-ish... I got to randomly sing to the Conservative party last year [i think] and came home with £10 XD [i was singing in a group btw... not by myself xD;]

I was also randomly interviewed for a radio... it was based on teenagers and what we do in our spare time.. I said play video games and go on the computer... she looked like depressed when she heard my answer... What did she think teenagers do? Late night parties, smoke and take cause vandalism everywhere? O.o... hey i wonder what her reaction would have been if I told her that actually XDDDD

I agree with Mark on the subject of dancers... I can't dance at all though =/

As for random/funny facts/stories about myself?

Random fact: I cut off my (fairly) long hair to cosplay L
Funny fact: Someone thought I'd had the Pride tattoos cut into my skin

Random/Funny story: When I was on my way back from London in my cat ears and tail; through Twickenham on a rugby night, some random drunk guy asked me (quite seriously) if I was a fox


04 Nov 2007 - 04:58778
Well, I am a clarinetist and play electic guitar and just in lin ewith the above comment...

When I was at a Meat Loaf concert this drunk woman looked at my Superman T shirt and thought I was Superman. I am a girl so she must have been really drunk.

Another random fact... I do ballet! XD... very strange for an otaku/tomboy to do ballet O.o
I also play the violin [as said on my profile] and my friends can never imagine a person like me play the violin xD... they find it odd O.o... actually I have to admit... If I was a completely different person I wouldn't be able to imagine myself play the violin or do ballet and jazz either xD;

... I also know how to ballroom dance O.o... again another strange fact about myself...


05 Nov 2007 - 01:02785
Ballroom dancing! So cool. I know how to do the YMCA, does that count?????


10 Nov 2007 - 17:08852
Yeah I could say that I've played Clarinet for a bazillion years or I enjoy running but I think my greatest achievement has to be throwing an ornamental otter over my friends fence.

ermmm ok i cant think of any particularly funny stories off the top of my head, but i once got to be an assistant in the costume department for the film mamma mia (its not out yet) and i got to hand out towels to all of the actors in a scene where they all got soaked in a fountain. This involved me seeing pierce brosnen shirtless and soaking wet! - hes not that buff!

Great idea for the thread Mark! LOL it's so funny to read everyone's stories >_<;;

I modelled at a charity fashion show at the Tate gallery wearing a dress made from bin bags and it was shown on MTV!
