What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you?
I was painting and working on artwork most of the time and just using Second Life to explore and take photos. I was looking for certain hairs I wanted to use and couldn’t find any so I just decided “hmmm I think I’m gonna learn how to make this stuff” and off I went! It’s been a long journey of Eureka! moments and wanting to throw my computer out of a window [lol] but overall I’d say it’s been amazing. I’m constantly learning new things everyday and it never ends, there is always something out there to learn and discover 🙂
How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you? How did you go about choosing your avatar name?
Oh man, I went through so many different names at first and none of them would stick. I was even getting yelled at by friends like “pick a name already!” and one night I was listening to a song and thought “man this is a pretty mellow track” and it hit me that I wanted to use the word Mellow, after messing around with a logo I decided to just toss the “w” out and use Mello instead and tada that’s how I became Mello.
My avatar name Cyanideslushy is actually just something I randomly came up with. [lol] I’ve always been sort of a dark person and into darker things and I thought it sounded cool at the time. xD I’m so emo, I know. lol
I think every designer has a little something that sets them apart from each other and it’s fun to see what they create and how their imagination works. I like to keep my hairs a bit artistic and I’d say whimsical. My style ranges from creepy kawaii to straight goth to urban. It’s kind all over the place and usually whatever idea pops into my head at the moment.
