FAQ to Renne: Do superheroes wear tights?

Question: Do all supeheroes have to wear tights?

Answer: No, they don't. But, clearly I do. I love tights! Always have, always will! This is a photo of some of my tights on the bed after doing laundry.

A side question I always get, "Where's your cape?" No capes! I think Edna from The Incredibles made this very clear why you would not want to wear one. As a superhero you have to think style and safety!

FAQ to Renne: Do you look like your avatar?

Question: Do you look like Zinnia Zauber, your avatar in Second Life?

Answer: Yes. I have done my best to be authentic in the virtual world Second Life. Zinnia might be more cartoonish and less thick than me, but for the most part she and I are the same in appearance. I make my own clothes and skins for my avatar. And, just made a set of eyes for Zinnia from photographs of my own eye I took under my microscope camera. I gotta be me!

Question: Why to do you have a Japanese middle name?

Answer: I was born in Tachikawa Japan, which is part of Tokyo, because my father was in the US Air Force and stationed there. My folks always wanted to remind me of where I came from. My middle name Emiko has several meanings, but the one I identify with the most is Smiling (Emi) Child (ko). I have always used my cheesewhiz grin as my logo to brand myself because the meaning of my middle name.

A couple weeks ago, I bought myself a keychain that had a little doll with my name, Emi. She is very sweet! www.kimmidoll.com
