All Ages of Geek loves to hear the story behind the Vtuber! Today we interviewed PaijeMonstre!
1. What inspired you to start v tubing
When I first started streaming a couple of years ago, I used face cam. And for some reason it always caused me a lot of stress. I felt like I needed to be made up all the time and look a certain way in order to stream. It took a toll on my mental health and it sucked because I loved everything else about streaming so much. But then this past year I really fell into the VTuber rabbit hole. And when I realized it was something feasible for me, it just clicked. I think I was kind of always meant to be a vtuber, I just didn’t know it at first.
2. How did you come up with your design?
Oh man. Well, my “aesthetic” as a streamer has almost always been sort of this pastel kawaii punk vibe with monsters/kaiju. And I wanted to keep that. It just felt right. I also knew I wanted Peachy (my model) to be a thicc babe with thighs and curves. There are still not a lot of thick or plus size vtuber models out there and I knew I wanted to represent. So I became the pastel kawaii Kaiju waifu of my dreams!
3. Plans for 2021?
2021 is a pretty ambitious year for me, I think. I plan on upgrading my model before the end of this year. I want to collab with other vtubers, maybe even some of my favorites! I also want to continue to foster a really great and inclusive community. But on the “non-vtubing” front, I am an artist and I’m currently working on a webcomic called “The Starmaker’s Daughter” that I plan to start publishing this year. Wish me luck!
4. Favorite part about streaming?
The community, by far. I fell in love with streaming because of the people. Of course not everyone is great, you get trolls and things like that. But when you build that community of people who just VIBE together, it’s beautiful. I also just love that I can make people’s days a little brighter and that I get to be a tiny part of their lives. It’s pretty neat!
