Profile Me


Alex

Danae would like to know:

What is your first name?
Alex
Are you Male/Female/Other?
Female
What is your age?
27

How would you describe your complexion?
Like a slightly overripe white peach?

How would you describe your facial features?
Eyes: Blue, apparently they get brighter and bigger when I tell stories needing laughter accents.
Eyebrows: Virgin fare, au natural, they’ve always just sat there, blending in, raising individually to express bewilderment or family-related sardonicism.
Ears: Un-pierced and unobtrusive, besides the smiley face made from 2 freckles and a dimple on my right earlobe.
Nose: Bygone, more suited to the faces of dead German relatives in dusty photographs. It would seem big if my head were of average proportions.
Jawline: Jealous of my cheekbones’s definition.
Mouth/lips: Functional, lips are some of my more delicate features.
Hairline: Often hidden by hair over my face, though my forehead is formidable.
Hair colour: Brown, golden at the curly tips.
Hair style: My hair wants to be Janis Joplin. Long, thick and unbrushed. If brushed when dry = surprise Farrah Fawcett.
Face shape: Like an AFL field with cheeks…they’re ovals right?

Any other notes on your appearance:
My chin is a party trick in waiting. I can balance spoons on it perfectly.

Describe at least three activities you most enjoy doing:
I’m a fan of immersing myself in technology, learning all I can about how things work. Mostly filmic related these days.
I also like listening and observing, then laughing and joking about being a creeper.
Lastly I enjoy eating ice cream, I have a dedicated ice cream face which is a combination of happy big eyes and raised double eyebrows.

Describe your favourite outfit:
I have a thick, warm, royal-blue hoodie with blue buttons here and there that feels like wearing a cloud.

Describe your facial expression when you are concentrating:
Unintentionally judgemental. If people glance my concentrated face they often feel put upon like I have an unsavoury opinion ready to launch at them. They soon realise it’s just my face.
