Profile Me


Sophie

Danae would like to know:

What is your first name?
Sophie

Are you Male/Female/Other?
Female

What is your age?
26

How would you describe your complexion?
Freckly, a bit purple under the eyes but mostly pale. Clear.

How would you describe your facial features?
Eyes: Blue. Well used. Good seers. Medium sized.
Eyebrows: Light brown. Naturally shaped with a slight bushiness in the middle, not to everyone’s taste but I keep them that way.
Ears: Medium sized. Good for holding back stray fringe fronds. Chumpy lobes with two holes in the left (an extra for one of my grandmothers diamond earrings which was then lost). Mostly good listeners unless there’s too much going on between them.
Nose: Apparently ”cute” or ”adorable” for most people. I didn’t think much of it as a kid. Thought it was too turned up (literally). Now I don’t think about it. That said it’s petite size means my sunglasses fall off my face more than I’d like.
Jawline:Round. Could say soft. I hold tension in my jaw if there is some.
Mouth/lips: quick to smile. surrounded by lines. they are my dad’s lips, my sister has them too. there is enough of them to pull off lipstick every now and again.
Hairline: Frames a rather large forehead and oval face. Oval hairline with slight cowlick on the left side. Hair part is always on the left.
Hair colour: Helsinki blond. Fake. Perfectly matched to the colour of my hair as a five year old. Feels better than the mousy brown that is under it.
Hair style: Low maintenance. shortish, and inch below my ears, and inch above my shoulders. Bluntly cut. Thick. slight wave/kink/curl. Depends how clean it is and how I slept. No fringe.
Face shape: Very oval. Quite big i think. Large face.

Any other notes on your appearance:
I’m fine with it.

Describe at least three activities you most enjoy doing:
making things with my hands. being with people that make confetti burst in my belly. swimming in fresh or salty water. travelling to new places. eating delicious foods. experiencing exceptional ideas or creations that someone has made. dancing.

Describe your favourite outfit:
This changes every day, but today it would be what I’m wearing. Pale purple sheer silk blouse with sleeves rolled up tucked into black high waisted skinny jeans. Bare feet. My Pocahontas necklace with small pastel plastic beads and ceramic feathers on rope. my mum’s old class ring.

Describe your facial expression when you are concentrating: Amusing to others, consistent, well known by friends and family. Very furrowed brow giving four lines between my eyebrows one of which leaves a prominent permanent crease and once became a tan line from concentrating in broad day light. my jaw stays soft and mostly closed unless I’m threading a needle, cutting paper finely, painting small lines, then there can be tongue sticking out and lightly bitten with top teeth.
