Hello everyone and welcome back to my parlour! Take a sit, relax and let’s have a little chat with an amazing person! She’s an absolute sweetheart, a great member of the IG gaming community, our sweet tooth fairy princess, Liz aka Gohma! Thank you for agreeing to be my guest today!
Thank you for inviting me. I feel so honored, so many awesome people been here for an interview and now I am here too.
As for every one of my guests we must start from the very beginning! When did your passion for gaming begin?
It all began when I was a sweet little girl XD, my parents were really young so they always invited their friends to our home and my father and his friends played games on the SNES. I loved to watch them gaming and when they allowed me to play by myself, my first game was The Legend of Zelda: A link to the past on SNES. It was awesome, I fell in love! Later we got the N64 and of course I couldn’t stop gaming. When I was young I didn’t have much friends, I’ve always been an outsider, so my parents offered me my first PC when I was 11 and I started playing games like Unreal Tournament, GTA, Quake and many more, so it began.
What is the game you have the best memories about?
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This game changed my life and i still love it like the first day, because it was a young boy who felt like he didn’t fit in his home, but he was chosen to be a real hero! He had to grow, get over his fears and kill the Evil that wanted to destroy his world. When I was young I realized that even when I don’t fit in with others there will always be my own way to grow up.
What does gaming mean to you?
Gaming means to me to be free, to be a character you want to be in a beautiful different world. To let my imagination spread, create many different characters and their own story. When I´m gaming I just enjoy the feeling, no matter if it’s an mmorpg, a first person shooter or a retro game. Mostly I like the stories that are hidden in the games. It’s like an endless adventure of joy.
What are your all time favorite games?
Of course The Legend of Zelda (Ocarina of time and Majora’s Mask), Unreal Tournament and World of Warcraft. These are games I still love to play and remind me of really good memories.
Speaking of World of Warcraft, how did you end up playing it?
I started playing World of Warcraft in 2015, one day I was hanging around with friends and one of them said, “We are always hanging around so why don’t we all hang around in Azeroth”, the next day we all started to play World of Warcraft, it was awesome! We created our own guild, created stories and characters. We all fell in love, but sadly all of them stopped gaming the same year. I also took a break from gaming, but in 2018 I came back to World of Warcraft.
What made you want to come back and stay?
I’ll have to tell you why I stopped gaming to understand why I came back. In 2015 I had a lot going on in my life, everything went wrong. So I moved far away from my hometown and started a new life in Berlin. But I never felt like home in Berlin. It was a nice city and a great experience to start a new life but I missed home. Some years later I moved back in my hometown and met all my friends again. I remembered how much I missed gaming with friends. So I started again, I love WoW so much that I don’t want to leave it anymore, thanks to this game I found this awesome community.
How did you end up joining the community?
I had my personal IG account and I started to share gaming stuff on my stories. Someday a friend said I should stop to only spam gaming stuff and create a dedicated account for that. So I created a gaming account, just for fun to share my gaming stuff. I realised how many people do the same, to share what they love. Because I didn’t get the support from family and friends, I felt a little alone ‘till I found all the other gamers, so I thought I wanted to support all the awesome gamers out there so they know they are not alone. I never expected to be a part of this awesome community.
What made you stay in the community?
Awesome people like you!! At the beginning I was a little scared to share my stuff, but I got such nice feedback. I met such great personalities in this community! It’s not about to have the best gear or the rarest mounts, it’s about supporting each other, to share the things you love no matter what game you play. I really care about these people and they help me when I feel bad, it’s like a second family for me and I don’t want to leave this Family.
Do you have a message for them?
Never give up on what you love! You don’t have to change because others said so! Many people have problems, or fears, or are searching for friends, you’re not alone! Gamers always support each other and it doesn’t matter how you look like, where you’re from or in what you believe. Just love yourself for who you are and stay strong, there’s always hope and love in this world.
Your account is so unique and you can always recognized one of yours from the others! What is your inspiration for your screens and for your edits?
Thanks! I think the most inspiration is from the landscape, sometimes I just fly around in Azeroth because there are so many beautiful places. Sometimes it’s the transmog, when I get a new piece which I love I have to share it in the best way. I love to edit pictures, many years ago I had my own homepage for templates and picture edits but I deleted it, so editing my gaming pictures makes me happy.
What are your plans and hopes for the future of your account?
I hope to meet more nice people, maybe play together, chat together or help each other. My plans are to share all I want to share, maybe inspire someone to play other games or to get their own gaming account and I really want to support all the awesome artists out there! I really hope this community stays together and grows bigger.
You also play Overwatch! How did that start?
I always played Blizzard games (WoW, Diablo, Hearthstone. Heroes of the Storm), when I saw the preview of Overwatch I was really interested because of all the awesome characters and their abilities. When it was released I started playing it and loved it. It’s always fun to join a random group or play with friends.
Something that we all know is that you have a passion for tattoos! Tell us more about it and about your tattoos!
I loooooove tattoos! It’s like an addiction, I always want more. XD I stopped counting my tattoos but I still got enough space for more. Every tattoo stands for something, good or bad memories, passion or for something to identify with. Most of them are from games, I love all of them. My first tattoo was my Buddha on my lower back I got in Thailand because I’m a Buddhist. The most important tattoo is Majora’s Mask on my chest, it’s an evil Mask, created by Warlocks, a Mask to control people. When I was young I felt like being controlled, to grow up to a person I don’t want to be, but like in the game you can defeat the Mask and put the evil out of it. All games/movies/animes which means a lot to me are on my body: Half-Life, Portal, Pokemon, Sailor Moon, The Legend of Zelda, The Lord of the Rings, Super Mario, World of Warcraft, Space Invader zim. I love to talk about tattoos and could talk about it the whole day but I try to keep it short :P. But I have to say that I got a tooth as a tattoo and the words “La fatina dei Denti”, which means tooth fairy XD.
And that’s why I call you tooth fairy princess!! We’ve talked about games and tattoos but you are so much more than this. Tell us more about you, who is Liz?
In real life I’m normally a really quiet person, I don’t like to talk to people I don’t know and It’s hard for me to meet new people. I was bullied a lot when I was young and my parents don’t care much about me, they had to work a lot. My childhood was not the most beautiful, things happened that shouldn’t have happened but I don’t complain about that, there are people who had it much harder than me. When I got older I was aggressive and when people tried to bully me I punched them. It took a long time to find out who I really am. I had close friends which supported me but stabbed me in the back and my family is small and most of them hate each other. I find it difficult to trust people. That is the main reason why I love gaming, you can be in a world where we are the same and support each other, of course in game there are always some idiots but that’s okay. In school I was always a nerd, when I started working as a Tooth Fairy I finally found out that it’s a wonderful feeling to help people, to make them smile. That all made me the person I am today, I love myself with all my scars in the inside and all my craziness. Now I am a really positive person, I love to go out with friends, I go to the gym and stay active, I love doing my job and I love to travel. I try to fly away every year to see all the beautiful places around the world and I try to spread some love.
And we are grateful to have you in our community because you are truly one of a kind, and we’re lucky to know you! What are your plans for the future?
Thank you, I am really grateful to be a part of this community! I don’t plan too much in the future, some of my family and friends died young so I try to enjoy my life in the moment! I really want to travel a lot, there are soooo many places in the world I would like to see, I want to spend a lot of time with friends and I want to play many more awesome games! Also I would like to start streaming one day, but I’m still too shy. XD
Wish you the best of luck with everything!! Are there any new games you want to play in the near future?
I always wanted to play Final Fantasy XIV Online and I haven’t started to play Borderlands 3, also I am very excited about Overwatch 2 and I’m still waiting for Half-Life 3.
And lastly the hardest question of all! Who are three members of the gaming community you would like to see as my guests?
There are so many wonderful and interesting members out there but I have only three to choose. At first it would be you @Kylara_gaming! I know you´re doing this whole thing but I think it would be interesting to find out more about you, also I would like to read more about @iv_yoru and @mirialani.
