Drizz: What made you decide to start streaming?
PureKaos: Jeff (my husband) and I had been watching streams, and we both thought it looked fun. I had the time, so I decided to give it a shot one day.
Once I started streaming creative and not playing WoW or Minecraft, things just kind of took off and I kept with it.
Drizz: What do you think has contributed to your success so far?
PureKaos: Networking, definitely. Having fun with what I do helps a lot.
Also, having a relatively unique stream. Creative and perler streams aren’t really as common as they used to be.
Drizz: What are some unique things that you do, in regards to streaming?
PureKaos: I think being able to offer people completely custom perlers is pretty unique. Not a lot of perler artists are willing to/have the ability to create patterns from scratch.
The paint-with-diamonds streams are pretty unique, too. Not a lot of people do them right now.
Drizz: Can you explain what perlers and paints-with-diamonds are?
PureKaos: Perlers are basically plastic beads that you arrange into various patterns and fuse together with heat (an iron).
Paint-with-diamonds is essentially paint with numbers but using crystals instead of paints.
Drizz: Have you had any hardships with streaming, and if so, how did you work through them?
PureKaos: I’ve had a hard time finding a good balance between doing what I enjoy, and what gets me viewers and chatters.
I’m still struggling a little, but consistency and doing what makes you as a streamer happy makes the viewers and chatters happen.
Drizz: Do you have any streaming tips or suggestions for the TRUgaming community?
PureKaos: As cheesy as it sounds, the best things I can suggest are don’t focus on numbers, have fun, and be consistent!!
Drizz: Is there anything else you would like to discuss about your stream/let readers know about?
PureKaos: Commissions are open :Kappa:
Honestly, though, not really. I’m just looking forward to coming back after this long ass mental health break!
