Real Life Anti-Bella: Amelia Arsenic

In 2002, two Australians met on an online zine forum. Their names were Karl Learmont and Amelia Tan, and they fight crime they make music designed to make your head explode. Amelia was running a zine distro called Vox Populis, and with Karl's help, it became the biggest zine distro in the Southern Hemisphere.

Oh, and she was about seventeen. Just saying.

From there, the pair progressed to making their own zines, and then to making music. While Karl had been in bands before, and was providing most of the musical expertise (at least in the initial stages), Amelia's talent for art and design helped make Angelspit into one hell of a monster. From there, they waged musical war on just about everything they could, releasing a hell of a lot of CD's (nine in eight years (including remix CD's) and becoming an internationally-acclaimed duo of doom. Until they took on new band members and became an internationally-acclaimed quintet of doom, that is.

During this, Amelia started her own fashion and makeup line, A is for Arsenic, and moved to London. Not only does she do pretty much everything involving A is for Arsenic herself, she also designs and makes merchandise for Angelspit, helps other people design things, and keeps making music and touring. Which is a pretty solid effort.

Not to mention, she's also (according to just about everybody) one of the nicest people on the planet. And really bloody gorgeous.
Bella can only wish she was this awesome.
