I’ve been a little absent so you get two posts on the same day! As someone who tends to make up fictional characters a lot as well as fictional identities that could fit into her favourite shows, I saw the How I See Myself as a Fiction Character Tag and immediately wanted to do it. That’s why I am all the more grateful that Melissa @Bookish Wanderer basically read my mind and tagged me for it.
It’s really rather easy, you just make up a fictional life you’d want to have and accompany it with loads of aesthetics for the categories that are mentioned. As Melissa mentioned in her post, it’s not about complaining about your own life, but having a bit of fun playing pretend. I am quite happy with the person I am and the things, events and people that have got me to where I am today, but I still think this will be really entertaining to make. Let’s do this!
QUOTES TO LIVE BY
This is NOT part of the original tag, but I felt like pictures can only say SO much and I wanted to give a little background here and there. In my mind, Eden is a little more jaded than me because she has been through more rough stuff, but still never lost her love for the whimsical and pretty things in life. She’s used to being by herself and cherishes that. I cannot imagine her being out and about going to the clubs at night and I don’t think I ever suggested that with my images (also, Vancouver doesn’t have the most outrageous nightlife scene to begin with). I can see her working in a non-chain coffeeshop where she gets to talk to customers and makes friends with the regulars. She knows her job isn’t the be all end all, but it gets her the cash she needs to spend the free time she has doing the things she loves. Eden is free and confident, living her best life.
I TAG THEE
What did you think of my fictional persona “Eden”? Have you ever made up someone in your mind? Let’s chat!
