Meet the Boomettes - Liz
Hi Liz! When you're not busy being a Boomette, who are you, and what do you do?
For capitalism, I work in procurement for the government. I kinda fell into procurement as a career after I couldn't find a job in science (my studies were in plant molecular biology), but I actually really love it! I get to work with a wide range of people and learn about so many different things, from social services to primary industries to construction! Outside of work I play bassoon & contrabassoon in local amateur orchestras and I dance tap and jazz. I also love gaming (both console games and tabletop) and am lowkey obsessed with the Dragon Age franchise.
How would you define your personal style?
Colourful maximilist! More really is more, which is why I love House of Boom so much. I adore bright florals and prints, and anything shiny or sparkly #magpie
This was your first season as a Boomette - how was the day shoot for you?
It was so SO much fun! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I’m quite used to music/dance performances in front of an audience, so i wasn’t worried about that side of things but it was a totally new experience working a camera.
What was your favourite piece of clothing from the collection?
I always love the TIARE skirt and the amethyst fabric in this collection is just so lush!
I love good wedding porn but much like how we rarely see fat women represented, there's also a shortage of queer weddings covered in the mainstream media - can we bask in some pics of you and your wife on your wedding day? Tell us about how you two got together!
Any excuse to share wedding pics! My wife & I met while I was studying in the US - a mutual friend invited a group of ppl to see an indie band play in San Francisco, and tickets were cheap so I thought “yeah why not”. We got to chatting and found we had a lot in common, so arranged to meet up later to exchange media files, which lead to dating!
Because of our families are in two different countries, we had one wedding in each. This was wonderful because it meant all our older relatives could show their support - plus more weddings means more married, right?
