Hello, everyone! This is Andrea here once again. Today I am interviewing YargPixie! Most likely you have heard of this designer but if you haven't, now you have! =) Well, I decided on YargPixie because I received a lot of Y-mails saying to do my article on her, and that she deserves it! YargPixie has pretty much everything imaginable in Akbars! She has hands clothes, eyes, etc. and so much more! She has so many things in Akbars that when you search for "YargPixie" nothing shows up because there are too many results! But in her store 'YargPixies Flying Circus' she has over 365 items!

A few things about YargPixie:

Yargpixie's real name is Yargot, she is 18 years old and goes to CSU (Colorado State University); she is majoring in art there. In her spare time, she likes to draw, paint, and play with her 18 pound cat, Nimbus! She has been on Whyville since late September 2003 and logged on over 775 different days, her salary is 67 clams a day. Man, I wish I had an 18 pound cat!

To begin this article I asked Yargot some questions.

Andreappd: So, when and why did you start to design?
YargPixie: I started to design around December of 2003!

Andreappd: What is one of your favorite designs?
YargPixie: I honestly don't have a favorite design! I have designed over 300 parts. It is kind of difficult to pick one. I guess if I HAD to pick one though, it would be "Yargot gets a haircut"

Andreappd: Cool, do you have any tips for people who are just beginning designing?
YargPixie: My most easy, simple tip is: START OUT SMALL! I bet you didn't know that you could make great face parts in the smallest box offered! Try making some nice lips or a beauty mark! You can always check out the article I wrote a few months back!

Andreappd: What exactly does your name 'YargPixie' mean?
YargPixie: I'm not all that sure what I was thinking at the time. My name is Yargot, and I guess I just liked pixies? I was 15. :P

Andreappd: Do you have any further comments?
YargPixie: Never price your creations too high! Why you might ask? Nobody will buy them! You have to keep your prices down to be successful!

Andreappd: Well, that's about it for this interview. Thank you for your time, Yargot!


Well, like last time I surveyed 30 people to see what they think about YargPixie, and since I interviewed 30 people some numbers were in fractions so I rounded it off to the nearest whole number.

67% of the people in Whyville have heard of YargPixie.
47% of the people in Whyville own one or more of her designs.
50% of the people in Whyville love her style.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this survey.

Here is another wonderful example of what people can accomplish on Whyville! And I would like to encourage everyone who's creative to give it a try. You just might find that you have a talent for making face parts; plus it's a whole lot of fun! Hopefully I will continue this series on designers, with part 3. If you would like to suggest a designer for up-coming articles, please Y-mail me. And, by the way, I would like to thank everyone for the great response to the last article, and all the awesome suggestions!

This is Andreappd signing off once again, keeping you up-to-date on the latest fashion 411!
