WHat do they look like to you?
« on: March 21, 2010, 07:28:47 PM »

Hoverboards: I always thought of it as a board that's the same height as you width-wise, and to me it was always a sleek black with two bold fuchsia/violet stripes running across them. o___o Like a dodge viper, but different.
Sneak Suits: Hm, these to me were also black with a spiky/edgy texture. (kind of like Lady Gaga's costumes, if youve seen those, but different and much smaller). And I had this crazy idea of cat ears on them
Interface rings: To me they were kind of bold silver rings with a big red circle, not a gem, but like a painted oval in the middle.

I'm sleepy, so I can't think of much objects right now haha.
But I like to see peoples views on how they picture these things.
If you have any other objects to add then add them and we can all share. :D

I was very particular about how everything looked in my head... and I didn't particularly like how the hoverboards were drawn in Bogus to Bubbly (sorry Scott-la =P)

So anyway...
Hoverboard: Surfboard but with more rounded edges and flat (think silver surfer). Silver underneath but black squares on top for grip (still a rim of silver on the top though)... oh, and the same size as your description Kim-la :)

Sneak Suits: Full body suit covered in black scales (think mystique from the x-men films for the scales) with a zip hood (the zip then covering with scales) to make you faceless

Interface Ring: flat gold ring, intricate pattern (I don't know why i pictured them as gold :-\)

Hoverboard- a fat silver oval with black almost  to the edge. small bumps all over to stick to grippy shoes

Sneak suits-kind of navy blue body suits  with metal veins running up them


Interface rings-fat silver rings with little runes going up and down them

Hmm I never really thought of how things looked
I'm not a visual reader, really. I get feelings and sounds from books, but not really pictures.
I like all your descriptions, though! It's so cool...

Really? :O I didn't know that.
I can't stand not visualizing something.

And those were great ideas, guys. :)

crazy, i didn't even know it was possible to read without visualising, tho it's not really something i've ever discussed before :)

wish i could read in your shoes for a day and see what the difference is like ^_^

When I read, it's like my own movie playing inside my head. :D
That's one thing I like about reading.
