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.
- What is your Twitch name? MissLelli
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
