About me

Occupation Part time corsetiere, part time anally-retentive grammar fascist, part time videogame producer!
Location La Serenissima
Introduction Known to most as GOK or Bella, I am a half-Venetian, half-British knitter, stitcher, dyer, grower, aesthete, historian, grammar-fascist, culinary goddess, gamer and uber-geek - working in the UK making fine bespoke corsetry and theatrical costume... with occasional forays into making videogames too! Constantly homesick for Venezia.
Interests Sci-Fi, LRP, cinema, theatre, cooking, fine wine and good food, knitting, creating historically accurate clothing.
Favorite Movies Far too many to list here...I may add something at some point!
Favorite Music I love Ray Gelato, Bliki Circus, God Speed You Black Emperor, Beautiful South, and Voltaire. I'm also rather fond of Arabic music, and have a fondness for retro stuff. Basically, if it's interesting then I'll give it a go. Bland and soulless music has no place in Gokworld!
Favorite Books I generally read non-fiction; however, that's not to say that I don't indulge myself with JK Rowling, Philip Pullman, Stephen Fry, Douglas Adams, Sharon Penman, Philippa Gregory, and Edward Rutherfurd, to name but a few.
