Behind the Blog: Wicked Halo

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Looking for something wicked, weird and beautiful to read? Look no further than the Wicked Halo blog, which counts among its loyal fans none other than fashionable tastemaker, Kanye West. I stumbled upon the blog fairly recently and have been hooked ever since! Wicked Halo is a compendium of amazing images that the Portugal-based blogger deems wicked and awesome enough to grace its pages. Read on to learn more about Ms. Halo, the woman behind the blog... and if you haven't had a chance to visit, please check it out for yourself!

Five Questions for My Favorite Bloggers

Who are you?


Officially, I'm a web designer, but when I put on the blogger mask I go about searching the web looking for all sorts of strange and fascinating things...I'm very much into eye candy and pretty much everything and anything that you can describe with fancy adjectives like odd, weird, freaky, cool, bizarre, and so on!

Where are you?


Portugal...which I know makes people go ...what, where? Well, it's a little country next to Spain, because Spain isn't actually all that big...most of the part by the sea is actually Portugal...I'm used to people not knowing where it is, unless they're into soccer. :)



What is the concept behind your blog?

I don't think I really have a proper concept behind it; it's just stuff I like or that catch my attention for some reason or the other. There are some areas I tend to focus more on like photography, art and stuff, but that just comes with being me, because it's what I like the most. :)

When I started, I just felt there was something I wanted to share, but didn't really know exactly what, so I was all over the place. I think with time, I've learned to focus and have found my "voice".



When you are not blogging, what else do you enjoy doing?

I'd love to say I have some strange and exotic hobby, but actually I'm pretty ordinary, I do all those normal things, surfing the web (way too much), music (lots of), movies (some), reading (the only thing commuting is good for), and of course window shopping!

Also love traveling but because of budget constraints, don't do that all that often. :(



More importantly, what are you wearing?

A mish mash of all sorts of things. I don't really stick to one particular style, I like mix and matching different clothing genres because I tend to like specific things about it, so it's hard to pin it down to one specific concept. Punk, vintage, goth, kawai, mod...I don't discriminate and borrow from everwhere!

Some of the brands I have a soft spot for are Skunk Funk, Desigual and Melissa. Also I have a big obsession with sneakers, I'm currently ogling the Reeboks biker chic!
