helblonde: (Art Crawl)
You have an art time travel machine. You can pick five artists to do a likeness of you (it doesn't have to be painting or photography). Assume that all the payment, scheduling, and so forth are taken care of - you just show up for your sitting(s) with temporally appropriate clothing that is esthetically pleasing to you. But these are for your personal enjoyment only - they can't be sold or even revealed to the world at large.  You can pick different eras of the same person if they are different enough (e.g. Picasso)

So, who do you pick? 
  1. John Singer Sargent
  2. Michelangelo (in marble)
  3. Dorothea Lange
  4. Hilliard, no, wait, Maxfield Parrish
  5. Durer, no, Edmund Leighton

Your result for The Which Viking Woman Are You? Test...
You scored 59% nobility, 66% magic, 13% slavery, and 48% practicality!
As a spokune, or spae wife, you were born into a noble family but can do magic. You're probably divorced, but no one cares because you are too powerful. Men fear you. Kings listen to you. Life is good.

Nabbed from g0atface, because you are a creative bunch.

If you saw ME in a police car, what would you think I got arrested for?

Answer me, then if you want, post to your own journal and see how many crimes you get accused of.

Islamic art uses many geometical floral or vegetable designs in a repetitive pattern known as arabesque. It is used to symbolize the transcendent, indivisible and infinite nature of Allah.</span></p>
<p>People that like Islamic art tend to be more traditional people that appreciate keeping patterns that they learned and experienced from their past. It is not to say that they are not innovative personalities, they just do not like to let go of their roots. They like to put new ideas into details and make certain that they will work before sharing them with others. Failure is not something they like to think about because they are more interested in being successful and appreciated for their intelligence. These people can also be or like elaborate things in their life as long as they are tasteful. They tend to prefer geometric patterns and vibrant colors.</p>

Your result for Reincarnation Placement Exam...

Deep Space Explorer

53% Intrigue, 61% Civilization, 56% Humanity, 53% Urbanization.

What makes it difficult, however, is that you don't seem to be much of a 'people person.'

If you were more of a people person, we would have commissioned you aboard the Starship Enterprise. But since you don't care much for the complications of dealing with your fellow man... we have another deep-space mission, more tailored for your tastes... a way for you to enjoy the benefits of high-tech civilization without having to put up with civilization itself. Let's set you up to pursue the solo career of a deep space explorer. You can go ahead and hibernate through the boring parts of your mission, and not worry so much about being a few decades out of touch with your fellows by the time you get home. In fact, you pretty much don't have to deal with people at all, but you can still enjoy a high-flying adventure of a life. Far, far away from the madding crowd, you get to play with your scientific instruments, serve your glorious civilization, and do interesting things with strange discoveries in exotic places.

The career might work out all right. Look what it did for Charlton Heston.

Your result for The Japanese Demon Profile Test...


You scored 17 in Malice and 19 in Chaos!

A Kappa is a "suijin," or water demon of Shinto mythology. They may be found in or near large bodies of fresh water, e.g. lakes, rivers, and streams, where they live and hunt. Kappa look like a human/turtle hybrid; they have a small depression on top of their heads which holds a strange liquid substance which, by all accounts, appears to sustain the life force of the Kappa.

These demons are parasites and carnivores, preferring to feast on the flesh of humans whenever possible, pulling them into the water and sucking the internal organs through the anus, although they may also drink the blood of other animals in times of deprivation. Kappa also seem to enjoy cucumbers and eggplants.

Although Kappa prey on humans, they are also notoriously polite; one may hope to escape a Kappa by bowing to it, whereupon the Kappa may return the bow, only to spill the liquid atop its head, which leaves it enervated and lethargic for the rest of the day. Kappa are not necessarily evil, like many demons; they are simply predators, nothing better, nothing worse. If one is brave enough, one may even approach a Kappa for healing or teaching; it is not altogether uncommon for a Kappa to resist its appetite and choose instead to assist a human.

Your result for The hardcore SCA Test...

King's Advisor

You may just be older than dirt, or a raving lunatic. You are about as involved as you could possibly be in the SCA. When you are at events you probably look like you just stepped out of a book. You're blood runs in kingdom colors, you are probably a peer, and your living room probably looks a lot like your campsite. You should probably get some help for your addiction, or see if someone will write a book about you.

Rules: Post 3 things you've done that you believe nobody else on your F-list has done. Indulge in remorse if someone calls you out on a listed item.

I have:
1) Been exorcized.
2) Planted transgenic tobacco in a hot Virginia summer. That's tossin' 'baccy, for those down with the lingo.
3) Competed in a national Jujitsu kata championship. I took second :)

Your result for The Viking Age Persona Test... 

Judge, jury and executioner; you are the lawspeaker. You know the ancient lore of your people back and forward, and you can remember every charted detail of your peoples' history back to the days when Odin created your world from the dead body of a giant. You preside over the Althing, which is the meeting of tribes and kings, and make sure nobody gets out of line. You are merely a freeman outside the Althing, but within the sacred boundaries of the frithgard, you are higher than the mightiest king of the north. And if anybody messes with you, you've got the gods themselves on your side. Wisest of the wise, you are untouchable.

1. What is your dream job?

In the corporate world: analyst. I love making data make sense. If I had my drothers, I'd be paid astonishing amounts of money to make art all the time.

2. Have you given any thought to selling what you make (jewelry, hats... what don't you make?! ;) )?

Yes. I would like to. I've finally gotten past the undervaluing my work, and I just don't think people are willing to pay what I'm worth (I don't think people even want to pay the cost of the materials). I do barter quite a bit.

3. If you could re/create any outfit, what would it be?

That's a question with more than one answer. I'd be pretty happy to finish the Anne of Cleves dress to start.

4. Someone asked Toni this. Do you buy fabric to stash or as you go?

Stash! I buy fabric as I find it, then I "shop at home" when I'm ready to make a new outfit.

5. Roadtrip? 

Why does it have to be so expensive?

Would you like me to ask you questions?

I think it's rather telling that of the pictures y'all have chosen as places you'd like to be almost none have people in them.

Not that I disagree with that right now.

My Personality
Openness to Experience
You are a calm person who is considered almost fearless by some, however you are not generally self conscious about yourself. You get overwhelmed by too much noise and commotion and do not like thrill-seeking activities. You tend not to express your emotions openly and are sometimes not even aware of your own feelings. You do not enjoy confrontation, but you will stand up for yourself or push your point if you feel it is important, however you are not affected strongly by human suffering, priding yourself on making objective judgments based on reason. You are more concerned with truth and impartial justice than with mercy. You take your time when making decisions and will deliberate on all the possible consequences and alternatives.
