Well, honesty is a virtue: I like rain, yes, but not when I'm under it. I absolutely hate getting wet because of rain, because your clothes and your hairdo get ruined, and you may catch a cold! So I've always had a habit of carrying an umbrella with me, no matter how sunny the day is lol But the real addiction hit me a while ago. Lately I've bought lots of umbrellas. At the time of writing this, I own seven of them. See, I'm a matching obsessee - all my clothes and accessories must match perfectly, or else I won't make one step out of my house. So yeah, had to get more umbrellas for all occassions. And I'm planning on getting more... :x All this took me to wonder "hey, what's the fanlisting for umbrellas like?". To my surprise, there wasn't any. Applied in the next 10 seconds, and the rest is history... >_>
Finishing this fanlisting took me a ridiculous amount of time, the reason being very simple: I had no idea of what to do. There were like 3 or 4 attempts to finally reach the version you can see now. The idea was to make something simple, cute, but with a catch. While googling pictures of umbrellas, a very particular one caught my attention, and decided to trace it. Deciding on only one pattern/color for the umbrella was impossible, and the nine different headers were born. I'm quite happy with the result! And now for the specific details in each layout:
General · The title, index header and page title are all taken from Rihanna's song Umbrella. It's a lovely song and it's perfect for this fanlisting, in my opinion :3 By the way, the girl with the umbrella was traced from a very charming picture here on SAI and finished on Photoshop CS2. The raindrops are brushes from skeiator@dA.
Index · Pink and hearts are two of my favorite things, so it had to make it to the main page. The hearts are a brush from Moargh.de.
Rules · Ladybugs! Love those little guys so when I thought of a red umbrella, they came to mind. Used a brush from missverstand@dA.
Codes · Used a texture from valkiria-stock with a gazillion Photoshop filters on it.
List · A night sky with stars, yet again inspired by an umbrella at Poupée Girl. Uses Photoshop default brushes with lots of filters.
Update · When I thought of orange, the first thing that came to my mind was... Kyou from Fruits Basket! ♥ I love that redhead a bit too much, I totally had to use him! Brushes are from PetRockX@dA, morfachas@dA, and res-res@dA.
Lost password · Couldn't think of anything purple other than butterflies! :D And well, they fit everything so... brushes are from Shiranui@dA.
Site · The very layout you're seeing right now uses just a pattern from violated-icons@LJ with lots of layer tricks.
