Alright class lets take it back to where I first started out going to comic con back in early 2013 from comic books , pokemon cards , social anxiety and being completely open and out going . I first got invited to comic con in 2013 by my neighbor, I was really excited to head out and go to this convention but my anxiety had other plans. I was really shy to speak with the cosplayers and venders there but then I started to realize everyone was just as unique as me. I started to have a small conversation with one cosplayer about how he made his pyramid head from Silent Hill cosplay and it turned into a 2 hour conversation about fabricating cosplays and how to use lunch boxes as stilts. Lets fast forward to the year 2014 where I started gaining interest in crafting cosplays I didn’t make many due to the lack of knowledge of how to use power tools and bondo so i made small cosplays like deadmau5 heads and such. In early 2014 I’ve found interest in photography it has become a big part of my life actually, I’ve traveled from Orlando to Cape Canaveral covering conventions. Photography was really fun at first but it has become more of a job than a pleasure i needed some sort of outlet aside from photography . I’ve always been a fan of heavy metal and clowns I grew up going to carnivals and circus’s so I’ve decided to mash the two together and create a new cosplay. I hunted all over the internet to find the perfect clown mask that fits my needs. I came across a fellow that goes by Jeff that runs face factory FX , he helped make MurDur the clowns mask. I started out shopping on amazon for the cloths and spikes and shoes it took almost a half of month to get everything together. But originally MurDur was just an emotional outlet from the stress from photography, MurDur created a safe place for me to grow out of my social anxiety and to feel more confident. I was really bad at small talk with strangers but when I dressed as MurDur there was such a confident boost that was given to me from Odin himself. I started a Facebook page just for MurDur so the people I made laugh could follow me I gained a small but yet strong following. Of course it was still hard for me to talk to my fans during my live feeds ( when i first started out ) but over time I started seeing my fans as family and not strangers. So it made it more easier for me to speak and joke around with them during the live feeds I became more open and “wacky” I didn’t do MurDur the clown as often because, I felt as if my live feeds weren’t entertaining enough so I took 3 months to think things over. In mid 2016 I decided to order my very first DJ mixer the pioneer DDJ-SB2 I had some knowledge of using a mixer from my night club days. So I began to start collecting music and practice mixing big room and dubstep songs it was very challenging due to the fact that no one wanted to show a newbie how to DJ. Onto late 2016 I had the idea that it would be cool to live stream while DJing, while dressed as MurDur. So I charged up my iphone 5 and hooked up my turn tables and went live and it was a hit everyone loved me I started a weekly routine of doing live streams and it started to grow like wild fire. I was not ready for such a big increase of followers I still suffered from social anxiety so it was hard but yet easy to talk with the folks that was watching me. One night a young lady by the name of Crystal Goin joined my live stream of my DJing and she told the VP of the clown Cartel TX Chapter about me and they invited me in. I met all the requirements to become an official member and this life choice has changed my life so joining the Cartel was a major challenge for my anxiety due to fact that my fan base sky rocketed. An sometimes it felt like a million eyes was watching me which was very new for someone that lived under a rock. My live stream continued to grow at a steady pace and Crystal said “you have to talk to your fans more” I was more of the type of entertainer that I let my music speak for itself so on one of my live feeds I jumped on the mic and everyone seriously loved me. Fans welcomed me with open arms and people shared stories of how my music kept them in good spirits in their dark times. Doing turnt Thursdays has definitely helped with my anxiety it has taught me how to communicate with people and how to do the small talk even though I still stutter over my words in live feeds .....<_< What keeps me doing turnt Thursdays is me being able to bring peace and togetherness though the power of music and also being able to cure someones sadness, anger, depression ,ect just by doing something I love to do which makes me unconditionally happy.
