– I started writing for my about me page which ended up in this story –
About the girl – Luminous Nova
Well hello there. I go by the internet persona of Luminous Nova which started out as a gamertag for my streams on Twitch. The name ‘Luminous Nova’ originates from wikipedia which told me a Luminous Red Nova was two stars merging together and at the moment of collision gave out this huge red light. I found this phenomenon interesting but left the ‘Red’ part out.
Should have called that part ‘About the name’ but heck, let’s just continue.
First of all, I am a twitch affiliate with a goal to become partner. To get there I support myself with a job as a taxi driver for 3 days in the week and have a passion to do shows in stiltwalking, hula hoop dance and any performance based on the event.
The spark of enthusiasm always seems to ignite when I talk with other people, work on a project or just, do whatever. I am positive, creative and always full of idea bubbling madness. I strive to get the best out of everything even if it takes a little longer sometimes. Loving life and living it.
The streaming journey began January 2017 and completely turned my life around. All of my creative ideas could fit into this platform of endless possibilities. Starting out as a game streamer I soon discovered a whole new world in IRL streaming. IRL means ‘In Real Life’ and you can stream anything in this category. From chatting with your viewers in front of your pc to taking them with you on a road trip. I soon found out that after my brain was fried on a game and I switched to IRL with some music in the background I started to relax and connect more. This was the start of a big change in my streaming journey.
Sometimes I would just scroll down the IRL section on twitch to see the randomness people do these days. And there I found this girl in a dark room with an LED hula hoop dancing her way on some ambient hypnotic music. After months of not seeing her streams or even thinking about hula hooping I got the urge to change up my life and my streams. As a stiltwalker for a couple of years I got bored of the fact that it was all sort of the same. I wanted a new act which involved more movement. More dancing.
The image of the girl with the hula hoop came back to me and when I talked to my viewers on twitch they were excited to see me take part in this. As a bonus I figured, let’s start this journey LIVE, on twitch.
So I did. With a couple of tutorials practiced before the stream – I really didn’t want to go in blind and end up searching tutorials the entire stream – and a donation goal for a LED hoop my hoop journey started November 2017.
So what about now? Closing in on November 2018 my first show as a Hoop dancer is a fact and I started new hoop socials to fulfil my need to spam the content. I am dividing my streams into different categories and am hoping my viewers will stick around for either a game, Coffee Talk or hula hoop dance practice stream. I’ll be adding more to this soon. YES. even more. I have this passion for content creating and now a platform to show it on. To be continued ..
