Today we’re joined by Aurore. Aurore is a wonderfully talented artist who specializes in making clothing, accessories, and wigs. She’s very talented at sewing. My thanks to her for taking the time to participate in this interview.
Please, tell us about your art.
(Artist sews and creates clothes/accessories and wigs)
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by some eccentric people (around me or on books/the internet) who I admire their styles and a lot of different styles and aesthetics. I’ve always been fascinated by alternative styles, also gothic outfits/aesthetic but especially very colorful styles, which is more me. I like trying and changing very different ones!
What got you interested in your field? Have you always wanted to be an artist?
Concerning stylism, I’m really into some materials, textures and colors! I like the fact that you can mix them and create unique stuff! I like the fact that I can use decoration or random stuff as accessories too!
I’ve always been into arts in general, 1st I’ve been into drawing, I occasionally paint too but stylism is my main passion.
Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in our work that you’d be willing to reveal?
Usually a very big wig :3 and some eccentric/big stuff on my head!!! This is a recurrent feature 😀
What advice would you give young aspiring artists?
Push away your limits, there is no rule in how to create! 🙂
Where on the spectrum do you identify?
I discovered autochorissexuality recently and this is me 🙂
Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field? If so, how do you handle it?
In my field, which is mostly IRL, people don’t know. Or maybe they don’t seem to care. Otherwise I’ve met mostly understanding people fortunately.
What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?
I’ve been said that I’m frigid and ill…
What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?
I’d say that they aren’t broken, they’re awesome and they’re worthy 🙂 It’s okay to be questioning too.
Finally, where can people find out more about your work?
On my blog rainbow — chameleon.tumblr.com, as I wrote in my 1st post, I only occasionally update it because I sadly rarely have occasions to wear my creations 😮 but I’ll update it in November 😀
Thank you, Aurore, for participating in this interview and this project. It’s very much appreciated.
