So… during my Queer Eye binge, I heard someone say there are three fictional characters that describe you. So I thought I would share the three fictional characters that describe me…
Ariel from The Little Mermaid
The original “fish out of water” the Little Mermaid was my favourite film when I was little. I think it might have been because her hair underwater is quite similar to mine in general, it doesn’t do what you want it to and you just have to let it do its own thang. I had the movie on VHS (for those of you who don’t know what that is, Google it, I’m not telling you!) and I even had another one, I don’t know if you remember the videos that had a selection of music, and I had one all about water and there were a few songs from the Little Mermaid that I watched so many times, the tape started to go funny!
Ginny Weasley from the Harry Potter Books
So, when I read the Harry Potter books first, I loved Hermione, and while Hermione will always be one of my favourite characters, Book Ginny will always be my one. She starts off as this shy, timid girl, who is obviously very clever (I mean who else would be able to make their own singing Get Well Soon card), and ends up being this fierce, confident girl whose wrath is feared because of her epic bat bogey hexes. It’s hard being a younger sister, everyone always wants to protect you, but brother’s don’t realise that you are just as strong as they are because you learned from them, and you have to learned to beat them. I believe that Ginny’s character growth is one of the finer points of the Harry Potter series, especially becuase the majority of it happens in the background, it isn’t until the fifth book that Ginny comes into a lot more. But what ever we hear/read about Ginny it’s always epic.

I was going through some old files and came across my Elaine Benes fan art from years ago, my favorite television character played by my favorite comedy actress of all time @officialjld #bowdowntothequeen . . . #portrait #seinfeld #elainebenes #elaine #illustration #illustratedwomen #comedy #photoshop #drawing #julialouisdreyfus #artistsofinstagram #artist #instart #digitalpainting
(How cute is this picture! If you click on it, you can see more) Elaine from Seinfeld was the first woman I saw on television who had more male friends than female which I related to. She is funny, sassy and doesn’t take any shit from Jerry or any of the other characters, she is the only one that has a stable reliable and realistic job, but is still successful in it. She was also the first person who had curly hair! Having curly hair is really important to me, I feel like it is part of my identity. Whenever I go the hair salon and have my hair cut they always insist on straightening it, and when I look in the mirror, I don’t feel like me! My hair is a big part of me, and I love having big hair (don’t care) and if I ever lost it for any reason, I think I would feel like I’d lost a part of myself too. A person I knew cut their hair short and when it grew back, it grew back straight! One of the things that really scares me with having PCOS is losing my hair when I get older, but hopefully if I get it under control, I won’t lose my important parts of myself.
What about you? What three fictional characters would you say describe you? Leave a comment below and let me know.
