GFR11 | Meet the designers – Calypso Clip, designer of Nemesis
When did you join SL and why?
I discovered SL in 2005. I know that the avatar Calypso was born in November 2007 but I had a former one rezzed in 2005. I joined SL because I was curious about this new virtual “life”.
How did you get into content creation for SL residents?
By curiosity too! I wanted to try. At my beginning, it was pretty chaotic! I had a vivid imagination of ideas that needed to be exploited and I did it in fashion, because I’m an addict and above all I like to wear pretty things.
How would you describe your shop?
My shop is a real part of me, it is colorful, casual and comfortable! I think that the best asset for my creations is to be mixed with everything that one could wish. You have the choice between many accessories like belts, eyewear or hairbands…
Front Row is an event supporting Relay For Life® of SL. Why does it matter for you to participate?
I’m concerned because it caters to a disease which can affect anyone at any time. I have a friend who had leukemia when she was 17 years old, now she’s fine but it was very hard to see her like that back then. As a designer I am happy if I am able to make a small action that will help the charity organization to both improve and save lives.
What would you like to say to those who are discovering you through this interview?
You can discover me partially through my creations and for the rest, ask me directly! My brand – Nemesis – is my passion, all I need, all I make! I’m already very proud of what I did, and I am excited about what will follow!
Where will you be in 5 years?
I don’t know if Second Life® will survive this much time but anyway, I know I won’t stop creating, because creating is my passion, and without it, my second life has no interest. And… I will probably be with all my cats by then (Bonnie & Clyde), haha!
