Geornee': 1. What’s your alter ego name? And how did you transition to the Queen you are today? Emily: Online I usually go by EmiTheStrangeXX0 which comes from that Emily The Strange brand that used to be sold at Hot Topic way back in the early 2000s. I was really into it back then and since I'm a bit of a weirdo I thought the pseudonym fit pretty well :-) For most of my life I've always wanted to wear colorful clothes but until recently I was too shy and nervous to try wearing them so I stuck mostly to black, blues, and other neutral colors. I didn't really start experimenting with fashion until I started sewing about 4 years ago and as I make became more knowledgeable about fabrics and patterns I start introducing it into my wardrobe more and more over the past few years. Geornee': 2. What fashion trends are you obsessed with this season? Emily: I know that painters overalls and 'shorteralls' are really in right now, and I love seeing all the different ways everyone is wearing them. I feel like overalls were considered to be kind of 'frumpy' but everyone is rocking them so hard these days and you can find pairs in so many different types of patterns and styles now. I just got a pair of peach overalls and they're currently my favorite thing.
