It's 'Ask Me Anything' with Mara from http://www.etsy.com/shop/Indiscretion

Who would you want to play you in the movie of your life? (yes, I am recycling questions, lol)

Drew Barrymore – she’d get the goofy part of me just right. Plus I think we are the same size bust heheh.

If you suddenly became colorblind and could no longer see turquoise, how would you survive?


After doing some research on the subject, I would either be able to see turquoise if it is a bright hue, or learn to love the color purple (which is how I would perceive turquoise). So either way I win :D


Angrylittledeadgirl
I want to touch them. May I touch them?


Lovely grammar, yes you may. However, you will have to catch me first.


HeartSizedCrush

why do i always want to squeeze you when I see you?


how did indiscretion get it's start?


In reality, I am only 5 inches high, and that makes me attractive for squeezing.

I used to make things and give them away to friends and family. That is, until one of them paid me to construct a garment for them. Then a few more friends did likewise. I decided that maybe I should be doing this creative work as a business.


The hardest part was figuring out what to call “IT.” I was struggling to find an interesting name for my business. My husband flopped open the dictionary, stuck a finger on a word, and pronounced that as my new business name. Very romantic
beginning…

Do you consider yourself a good parent, basing it on the fact that you clean out the cages every week?


I am extremely good at cleaning out the cages and I always remember to feed and water the offspring. I guess that would be a yes, based on my past performance and the fact that the offspring are still alive.



Gothcupcake
Favorite example of DIY in a movie?


Pretty in Pink I didn’t like the actual DIY she did with the prom dress – it was scary – but I liked the idea that she was reconstructing an outfit in the movie.

If you could have one exotic animal for a pet, what would it be?


A peacock – I looooove the feathers! The bird is also the right color ;)



Ravenofskys
If you could change one thing about yourself (personality or looks) what would it be and why?


If I could change something: it would be to have longer legs. I am so tired of people using my head as a coaster, standing on tiptoe at a counter, and having to hem every pair of pants.

If I told you that you had a nice body, would you hold it against me? *snickers*


Most likely, but then what are you going to do for me?. =)



Invy studios
If you could time travel, when/where would you want to go? (Past, present, or future) What event would you most like to witness, but not alter?


I’d go back to the time of the dinosaurs, right when they disappeared. I’d take pictures, notes, drawings, etc. Then I would come back to the present, write a book, and it would become a #1 best seller. That is, if I don’t get eaten.


Platypuses
What was your first time like?


It was wet, sticky, and confusing. I wasn’t sure how to do it. It seemed straightforward, but was clumsy. And that’s how I had my first bite of sushi.


Psycho kitty
What reason would you give to request that the colour turquoise be changed officially to be the Mara colour?


Technically, I don’t really need a reason. It’s much easier to say “Mara” than turquoise, the word “Mara” adds a flair and je ne sais quoi to the sentence which transcends that lousy French word currently being flopped about. And it’s more fun. Par example: “OMG look at that awesome Mara shirt!!!” See?


Angrylittledeadgirl
How many pounds of fabric would you estimate you have?


Seriously: Let’s say I do a guesstimation of about maybe…on the very conservative side…I have about 1200 yards. I think this might be low, but we are only estimating, right? The average yard can be from 5 oz to 1.5 lbs. So let’s just use an average of 8oz. 8oz x 1200yards = I’m too scared to type the number.


WinterLights
What? When? Where? How?


Why are you so damn cute?!



What: as much as
When: immediately upon
Where: in whatever place
How: whence


See, I found these little purple pills on the internet. They claim to make you cute. I started taking them about 10 years ago…I guess they are working…




Fabulously Fierce
If you could be a fly on anyone's wall, who's would it be and why?


John Galliano’s workroom. Just so I can see how he REALLY comes up with his ideas.


Sinburned
What was the coolest project you worked on during school?



Probably a chair I made entirely out of cardboard in my freshman year of college. I mean, I made lots of fun things, but this was really wacko out there. I had to drag it across campus to my class and everyone who saw me stopped to help, admire the chair or sit in it.

How does it feel to be the only marginally active straight male diyscener?


Probably the same way it feels for you to be the only very active transvestite hermaphrodite on DiyScene.

Keep on your own side when sleeping, or spooning?


An avid sleeper with a fierce need to be possessive of her own side of the bed, Mara will acquiesce to spooning only if the temperature dips below 32degrees fahrenheit.

At a movie theater, which arm rest is yours?


If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest drown too?

Have you ever tucked your dress into your panty hose?


I hog both armrests. It’s the only way to anchor myself in the chair.

All the swimmers drown, otherwise they aren’t very good at synchronizing…

I have tucked many a skirt, dress, etc. into pantyhose. And I usually don’t know about it until I’m in public. I once walked 5 blocks in Manhattan on my way to the subway without knowing my miniskirt was tucked into my bright turquoise underpants. I am classy.

Let's say you've gone out shopping for some fabric/food/etc. And all of a sudden you nose feels itchy like there's a BIG booger in there. Do you stick your finger up your nose shamelessly in public, or try to hide the fact you're picking your nose, or wait til you get home?



I have to be honest when answering this: I’d be so concerned with my undies crawling up my behind and trying to find a corner in which to hide and yank them out, my nose would be forgotten.


Blackkittenaccessories
Do you have to hold your boobs when you run, so they don't smack you in the face and knock you out?!?


I use turquoise duct tape in which to secure my fleshy orbs, tyvm.


Beanbun
If you added up all the laps your son has run around the house/kitchen/neighborhood, would it circle the earth 8 billion times?



I think if all those laps were added up, we’d find not only get to the end of the universe, but also to the end of the interwebz….


Tapebubba
If you were trapped on a desert island, and had to pick 10 diysceners with whom to be stranded, nevermind those other nine bitches and tell me I'd be one of the ten.


Yes, you would. That’s because I know you have the body bags we can use to oops um….nevermind.
