Twitch Streamer Series – Part 54

Twitch Streamer Series – Part 54

Another fabulous streamer and one I am happy to call a friend of mine is this next wonderful lady who is a gamer and a creative streamer who definitely puts a smile on my face. And she tries to put smiles on everyone’s faces too. She is actually married to another streamer who I had the honor of interviewing- Cyb3rDragon. They are a funny couple who’s streams are fantastic. And her theme for her channel is Alice in Wonderland. How cool is that?   But now let’s get to know AAsendent shall we?

 

1. What is your twitch name?
                  AAsendent but everyone calls me Sendy.
2. Is there a reason why you chose that name?
                  It is from one of my many TV show obsession Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda. Admittedly it is spelt slightly wrong but we will pretend that was intentional haha. My bot RomDoll is also from the same show. I planned on integrating the show into the channel more but realized many people are unaware of it so best not to for now.
3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?
                  To be honest, I only ever joined Twitch to support the hubby Cyb3rDragon but after a little while it was suggested as a joke that I tried streaming myself. Naturally after the first few streams I was hooked haha. I am glad I did though as I love interacting with people in chat, to the point where sometimes I forget I am meant to be playing a game lol.
4. Why did you become a streamer for Twitch?
                 As above really, I have never really entertained the idea of using a different platform.
5. How long have you been a streamer?
                  I think its been about 6 months on and off, I took a break for a couple of months due to stuff at home. I am off for a few weeks now as on holiday but I will be back at it as soon as I am home again.
6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? And if you’re comfortable saying what, what is your other job?
                   Job title: Ring leader to the newly name Spawns of Sendy. (aka Mother of 3…4 if you include Cyb3r)
7. What are your favorite games to play?
                   My favourites change so often as I generally obsess over things for months at a time and then not touch them again for a while. At the moment FFXV, Crash Bandicoot, Sims, Overwatch and most recent is Fortnite. There are others I want to really play but until I have more monies they will have to wait
8. What are your favorite games to stream?
                  Any form of the Sims for sure, its a pretty chill game to stream so I can keep up with the chatting while doing so. We have a lot of fun with the story line aspects on the game and I am looking forward to starting Sirens Asylum in the next month too. Crash is another favourite but that is purely down to the amount of rage that game induces. Once I am back from Holiday expect to see Fortnite for a bit too.
9. Do you have any games you’d like to recommend to my readers to play and why?
                  Crash Bandicoot remastered…EVERYONE needs to feel that rage! lmao
10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?
                   It was a little but a lot of my viewers I talk to in other channels so it was just like talking to friends, some days it is harder than others and I still get stupid nervous before starting stream or taking down the setting up screen from time to time.
11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel?
                Hey guys! Why not come join us some time, don’t worry we wont bite..to hard haha
Want to meet this fiery woman yourself and have some fun while we all laugh and chat together while she plays games or even once in a while gets creative? Then you will want to follow her at her channel: https://www.twitch.tv/aasendent

Twitch Steamer Series- Part 53

Twitch Steamer Series- Part 53

Everyone has their own way of doing things and making things that they love. And I know that these creative streamers are here to hopefully entertain you as well as possibly inspire you as they mold things with their hands.

 

1. What is your twitch name?

    Name is Matrixovershock

2. Is there a reason why you chose that name?

Most people think I chose my name because of the movie the matrix, but it’s actually due to the movie Hackers. Loved the names of the characters; CrashOverRide, AcidBurn, LordNikon. So I went with the theme with my old AOL account and now today it’s my handle.

3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?

  I became a Twitch streamer because I enjoy talking with people and just be genuinely entertaining. When I first found out you could entertain people through gaming I knew I was hooked.

4. Why did you become a streamer for Twitch?

Out of all the streaming platforms, Twitch has the best community hands down. Very supportive.

5. How long have you been a streamer?

 Heavily for around 3 years now. I first started with gaming, but once I discovered creative that changed my whole stream. Now I make marionettes. Puppets live for people to see.

6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? And if you’re comfortable saying what, what is your other job?

I do have another job. But since I have received my affiliation I’ve been able to cut back the work there and devote more time to my stream.I don’t mind mentioning. I work for a marina warehouse in the shipping department.

7. What are your favorite games to play?

When I do stream games its usually ones that challenge the mind and are creatively fun to play. Lots of sim games, Minecraft, Starbound, and Terraria. This answer would also go with question 8. because when I do stream them, these are my favorites to stream.

8. What are your favorite games to stream?

See Above For Answer

9. Do you have any games you’d like to recommend to my readers to play and why?

I really don’t know of to many. Always try to stay current with the games. Or form a good bond with a old titles community. No matter what, just make sure your having fun. True supporters to your stream will stay and watch no matter what.

10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?

For me it was a natural feeling to talk to people. I have no problem getting up in front of a crowd to talk. physically or digitally. This comes from many years of doing school plays and just being a very out going and positive spirit.

11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel?

 So my channel is known for several things. Our mascot is my eldest ginger cat, Cinder, who frequently bombards the stream and takes it over by laying on my desk and preventing work. Speaking of work, I make puppets. Well, marionettes. Stringed Puppets and other paper clay/ paper mache sculptors. I also paint and have been learning how to draw. you gotta start somewhere. Lastly, I’m known for smashing a cupcake in my face during my streams. Its something that happens if certain criteria are met. We call it the #Sacrificialcupcake.  :)

This guy works so hard on his projects and from what I have been able to catch when I lurk in his channel is that they are amazing. And he has so much fun doing what he does. Maybe you will catch the cupcake smashing of Cinder taking over the stream. So go show him some love on his channel at: https://www.twitch.tv/matrixovershock

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 51

I am sorry for my absent but I am back and ready to jump back into my series of all these wonderful Twitch streamers. So let’s jump right back in with another awesome creative streamer and keep going from there.

  1. What is your twitch name?

                          My Twitch name is CraftsUntold

2.  Is there a reason why you chose that name?

                     I chose it because I already had an Etsy account with the same name, and I knew that I was mostly going to be streaming Creative. So I went and checked if I could have CraftsUntold on all the social media, then created the Twitch account. Brand Unity!

3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?

                  It seemed like a good way to work more crochet and knitting time into my day. It was also suggested by my boyfriend since I was watching other creative streamers.

4. Why did you become a streamer for Twitch?

             I wasn’t aware of any other platform to stream on besides Twitch. I knew people did video blogs and posted them on YouTube, but that’s not live. So, that’s why I’m on Twitch! Also, the streamers I was already watching had created very positive communities.

5. How long have you been a streamer?

           I started streaming in May of this year, so almost 3 months now?

6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? And if you’re comfortable saying what, what is your other job?

I have a full-time day job besides streaming. I have a general office type job. I’m an administrative assistant.

7. What are your favorite games to play?

                I like to play Final Fantasy XIV and Don’t Starve Together. Tetris, Guitar Hero, the Sims.

8. What are your favorite games to stream?

           I stream crochet and knitting. I create mostly amigurumi (crochet dolls) of video game or comic book characters. Sometimes I work on fancy things like beaded shawls or knit socks. Sometimes I create a pattern, sometimes I use a pattern that I find online. I haven’t streamed any games yet, I may stream FFXIV in the future. Who knows?

9. Do you have any games you’d like to recommend to my readers to play and why?

             Oh, Don’t Starve Together is so much fun. Definitely that one.

10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?

              It was, I was having flashbacks of the first couple times I had to stand in the front of a classroom and talk to students. I am not a naturally outgoing person, I have to fake it until I believe it. I am a hardcore introvert. But it does get easier as you get to know your regular viewers, and as you get to know your fellow streamers who stream similar things or who are on your stream team if you belong to one.

11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel?

              I hope you will stop by some time. I take commissions, so some of the projects I work on will be commissions for viewers. We recently got over 200+ Followers and have had a few giveaways, so we do fun things on streams for milestones.

If you are interested in a laid back and fun creative stream, then I would definitely stop by and hang out with CraftsUntold. She is really a great streamer! Here is the link to her Twitch channel so that you can go check her out :  https://www.twitch.tv/craftsuntold

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 23

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 23

Painting isn’t the only amazing project that streamers love to share with their viewers. This next streamer loves to do so many crafts that I doubt anyone would get bored with what she does. And the best part is she has her own Etsy shop to sell what she makes. Allow me to introduce you to her now.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                     MissLelli
  2.  Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                  My sister is 7 years younger than me and she couldn’t say my name properly when she was little so she called me Lelli. It’s always stuck and my mom still calls it me now.
    I use it as my gaming name and online profiles and added ‘Miss’ if the name was taken.
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                               The creative community on twitch is truly amazing. Pretty much everyone I’ve met on there has been so supportive and encouraging to everyone. It really does make you want to give streaming a go.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                                I’ve been watching twitch since about 2013 ish. At first it was to watch league of legends tournaments but when twitch creative got announced, I became a lot more active on the site. I like that twitch has multiple categories, it’s nice to have everything in one place instead of having to go to one site to watch gamers and another site to watch artists.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                        I did my first stream about a year ago but due to life getting in the way I’ve been very inactive. I’ve only done a handful of streams this year so far but now we’ve just moved to a new house, I’m planning on doing a lot more again once things have settled down.
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                                 I’m actually a weird ‘mature’ student in University full-time. I’m about to start my degree in applied arts, which is a fancy name for making shizz. I also have a small Etsy store where I sell my handmade horror creations. Props, decor, key chains, accessories etc. And I stream the making and the progress of these items.
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                 I used to be big on mobas and mmorpgs but lately I’ve just been kicking back playing chill games. I love Stardew Valley. I was watching Concerded Apes blog since the game was in the very early development stages. I used to love Harvest Moon but Stardew is my number 1 game to play on steam. I also really enjoy playing the Nintendo switch, my favorite games on there are Mario Kart and Arms and I can’t wait to play Splatoon 2.
  8. What is your favorite thing to create on stream?                                                                                   As a huge horror freak, I must say that’s it’s got to be anything that I sculpt for my Etsy shop. I do also crochet as well as other crafts and forms of art but sculpting is my favorite. I mostly use super sculpey for my sculpts as I get more details in the piece. I like to get a reaction from people with my horror art even if people come into the stream and ask about my projects then say it’s gross, I’m happy because after all horror isn’t supposed to be pretty.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                                 Stardew valley is the game I recommend the most. I just simply love that game! There’s farming, fighting, fishing, friend and family making, all the Fs you’ll need. Mario Karts has been a firm fave of mine since I first played it on the snes and the newest one doesn’t disappoint. Other games I love are – Fantasy Life on 3DS, Arms and Splattoon are both fun friendly competitive games on Nintendo, Fran Bow and Year Walk are two really cool horror point and click games on steam and then last but not least, Recettear and Chantelise are by the same company, on steam and so rock solid. They make Lelli rage / cry in a corner. They are fun, check them out if you like RPGs.
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                              Yes, I’ve suffered from anxiety since I was a young teen and the idea of talking to people, I don’t know scares, the crap out of me. But the community in twitch creative is so welcoming and after 10 mins of streaming I forget why I was scared. It still happens now and again for me, if I over think about going live I end up making myself sick. The first time I had a big host, the lovely PrendorianCrap came over with 50 viewers and I completely buggered it up. I didn’t know what to do or say and I felt guilty for being a wasted host for her. I just froze. But you live and you learn and like I said there are some awesome people on twitch who have really made me feel more comfortable with it and confident about my art.
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                           If you haven’t ventured over to the creative side of twitch yet then you definitely should come and check us out. After all, most of us there are just gamers/geeks/nerds/what have you that are showing off our creative sides. I know my art isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but there’s so many talented artists on twitch, it’ll be a shame to not pop by and say hi to at least one you like the look of.

 

Yes, please go say hi and check out her channel at twitch.tv/misslelli to see her creative side. And if you ask her nicely, she may give you information to her Etsy shop.
