We all see them around DeviantArt … they do WONDERFUL things for this community in one way or another … we admire them; we love them; we would LOVE to get to know them a little more … Well now is your chance to see how they are, how they think, how ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL they are!!!
Today we will get the chance to look into Erzsabet ’s heart … She’s one of the Community Volunteers who gives her all at the Chats & Forums … Do you want to peek into her heart??? Well, COME ON!!! Let’s go meet the “human” behind the username, who btw today is celebrating her birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR Erzsabet!!!
As cliché as it sounds, I consider myself to be quirky, eccentric, mercurial, etc. One day I might be calm and thoughtful and give out advice, and the next I might be calling myself the Empress of Newfoundland and talking about crazy conspiracy theories. My favorites involve lizard people running the government, the Nazis and Lost Tribes of Israel living in the center of the earth, contrails/chemtrails, and whatever else sounds amusing at the time.
My new favorite that I just heard about is that Hotch from the show Criminal Minds is a vampire. He asks to be invited in on everything
I am generally really friendly and I love being social, unless I'm really tired and have had enough for the day. I also spend a lot of time at home alone, so I chat with friends on Skype.
What do you enjoy the most about your own DA experience?
Meeting new people in the chatrooms, as well as finding amazing costuming artists and seeing the things they make.
What brings joy into your life outside of DA?
Sewing, crafting, finding new things to make, actually finishing projects and having people actually appreciate them. I would love to have my stuff become famous one day, even if it's just one piece. I don't care about personal fame, but to have something I've made become recognizable to even a select group of people would be awesome.
If you could have ONE wish fully granted in life, what would be that one thing you would call "A dream come true"?
To be able to make gorgeous gowns and have people be able to recognize and appreciate my work. I don't care about being personally famous, but to make a gown that ends up being famous would be amazing.
What is in your opinion your BEST quality as a human being?
My ability to get along with almost everyone. I can almost always find something to talk about with someone, providing they are willing to talk to me.
If a time machine was invented and you could travel in time to any period of your life, which one would you like to revisit? Would you try to change anything about that time?
I don't think I would. There are things I regret doing, like going to college as an International Student here in the US (I'm from Canada) because it cost me a lot of money, which I had, thankfully, due to an inheritance I had, and had some bad experiences, but I also made some good friends, and learned some valuable lessons without coming to any real danger or harm.
What is your true passion in life?
Costuming. I am obsessed with large poufy gowns with crinolines and corsets. I am a huge fan of robe à l'anglaise and the designer Charles Worth, who is considered to be the father of Haute Couture.
What occupies your thoughts during most of the day?
Pretty much anything and everything. My brain jumps around so much. And of course random music. I'll be sitting somewhere doing something and realize that for the last 5 minutes I've had a song stuck in my head that I haven't even heard in years, but probably popped up because of a word I heard or saw that can be associated with that song.
What does "LOVE" mean to you?
It means accepting someone's flaws as well as their good points. Being comfortable around the person you love without having to talk all the time, and understanding that you don't have to like all the same things. Being best friends with the person you love, and knowing all their little quirks, how to handle their ups and downs, and knowing they feel the same way about you.
What is your favorite quote?
"I reject your reality and substitute my own." Or at least, that's the first one that popped into my head. It's fitting, my reality is often more entertaining anyway.
