Hi everyone. I'm Scott and I live on an island. I don't have any AF1s or Docs because no one sells them here.

My favorite fish is Nemo. Favorite color is #3f3f3f and its variants. I listen to whatever's on my Spotify playlist. Anything except olives and anchovies. Tigers are cool. I had a Britney poster on my wall. Chips. Biscuits for biscuits, cookies for cookies.

(love)

I'm James. I'm 21 and from London. I'm addicted to buying second-hand Undercover and drinking Diet Coke. My favourite fish are great white sharks. I love the colour yellow, but not to wear. I mostly listen to grime and garage. I usually have pepperoni on my pizza. I once "discovered" on a heavy trip that my spirit animal was a rabbit. Kelly Brook might have been my first love but I can't really remember. I say crisps and biscuits. I post on lots of internet fashion boards so I thought I'd give here a try. I like the emphasis on friendliness this place seems to have.

FWD has traditionally been the go-to place for that kind of music and has a legendary status in the scene. It played grime before grime was even called grime and is also famous for "inventing" dubstep. Here's a good radio documentary if you're interested:

Charlie, 19, residing in Durham or Manchester UK depending on term times.

Got shown this place by a uni friend and it seems to be bogged down with less bullshit than the other fashion communities I've seen.

I'm Mark, 19, currently going to school in California, but I'm originally from Hawaii. Hello all!

I normally frequent r/mfa and lurk sufu, but care-tags seems like a much nicer place than either.

My username is a reference to Neutral Milk Hotel and my avatar is a reference to WU LYF because I have an obnoxious taste in music.

It's all about that referential username. Mine's an oh-so-clever spin on a Lovecraftian god or a cool band so if people get it I can be all like "yeah boy".

Big up on NMH though.

Hi, I'm chadnik, 23. I was told by a cool person that this place was cool. I'm active on FFA/FF. I'm currently desiccating in the golden west in grad school (northern Central Valley), and like thinking about good movies, vintage togs, shoegaze/ambient music, and what Margaret Howell ate for breakfast.

Translation:

My mom was a huge fan of the original "Coca-Cola", I've been drinking a lot of it for as long as I can remember. I switched to Coca-Cola light when it went on the market, then for Coca-Cola Zero. I don't even know when the changed happened: I tried the drink and all of a sudden I realized I had moved from light to zero. I tried to rid myself of this bad habit, because they say aspartame is bad for your health, but I wasn't very motivated. I told myself: "After all, I don't have any other addictions..." And that's where I understood I really had a dependence. For a long time I went to bed with a glass full of Coca-Cola zero that I put on my bedside table, where others have a glass of water. And when I woke up in the morning, the glass was empty. I had drank it the night prior in an automatic and unconscious way. It was a terrible habit. Today I try not to drink it before breakfast. Days where I don't drink any by noon, I feel compelled to drink it at 4pm. Thats how I know it's 4pm: I can't hold out much longer. I like it even better when it's flat. It only needs ice. Even deprived of Coca-Cola zero for three days, I can't drink it at room temperature. During fittings in Milan, in June, it was often very hot, especially with twenty five people in the room. So I would open a can of Coca-Cola zero, but it warmed up too quickly. When I had drank half of it, I would put in in the refrigerator and open a new one while I waited for the old one to chill. A few years ago I was drinking two litres (half a gallon) a day. Today I can sometimes limit myself to two or three glasses. But since I'm drinking less and less, I tell myself that I won't ever drop the habit completely. Because of the issues related to aspartame, maybe I should start drinking regular Coca-Cola. But nowadays, I'm not a fan of its taste. Unlike other [coke] enthusiasts, I can substitute Pepsi Max when there's no Coca-Cola zero or light. Which goes to show you how addicted I am.

Hey there friends.
My username is ryan_firecrotch, but my name is Noah. (It's a story.)
I'm a teenager looking to know more and become more rounded.

I'm not very wealthy, and I don't live in a city with much activity.
I will be lurking a lot.

I formed an obsession with clothing, just looking better, maybe a year ago, and I let it become me. Today I'm very interested in fashion at all levels, retail, and design.
I'm very interested in people with careers in fashion, and would love to PM with higher ups, new faces, and whomever else.
More than anything I'm here to talk about things you can put on your body with strangers on the internet. You're all very cool to me.
