HELLO CLONE CLUB!

Just wanted to thank this awesome fandom for liking & supporting my Cloneversation Cosplay Fan Film video. (Haven’t seen it yet? Click here!) 

I’m so glad to be apart of this seestrahood/fandom. I just want to hug you all! I would love to do more of these cloneplay videos so if you have any suggestions or ideas send them my way! :D

We make a family, yes?

Thanks to shefadestoblack for taking these pictures! :)

Here on the OBTumblr we love to talk about Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Rachel, Helena, Katja and Beth, not only because they’re an interesting and awesome group of people, but also because they literally share the same DNA.

The human cloning in Orphan Black isn’t that farfetched – genetic identicals are a scientific reality. You actually COULD meet your clone one day. What would it be like to meet another version of yourself?

No one is a clone (as far as we know!) but imagine what it would be like to have multiple, distinctly different identities. What if we created multiple personas for ourselves? What would those people be like?

We think now’s the perfect time to find out, and we’re calling it Cloneplay! Here are a few ways to participate: 

Cosplay your clones. Dress up in costume to create a different version of yourself. Change your makeup and take selfies. Draw or doodle or collage or MS paint a quick sketch of what your clones look like. What clothes do they wear? What are their hairstyles?

Post text descriptions of your clones’ personalities. What are their likes/dislikes, favorite color, nationality, accent, professions, interests, relationships to each other? Write physical descriptions, create DNA codes, identify blood type, birthday. Do your clones have monitors? Do you?

image

Make a video profiling your clones’ style. Create an original scene and upload it to YouTube - maybe one where you discover you have a clone, or have to secretly cover for one of your clones who gets really drunk at a potluck. Post a text or chat conversation between clones. Mock up your own clone case files. Write from the point of view of the police investigating the case which ultimately uncovers you and your clone sestrahood. 

#CloneClub is a ridiculously talented, diverse and imaginative fandom, and we can’t wait to see how you experiment with identity. Tag your cloneposts with #Cloneplay and we’ll reblog a bunch!

  • Research student studying stem cells and regenerative medicine
  • Cosima Niehaus’s ex girlfriend (but its okay b/c they’re on good terms)

Holly Kaine:

  • Born in poverty, given up for adoption, got adopted by an extremely affluent family in New York.
  • Uses her sassiness and condescension to cover up for her insecurity of being devalued by society.
  • The other clones (quite understandibly) do not like her very much.
  • Holly thinks being a clone is the worst thing that could possibly happen to her, since she loses her sense of uniqueness and individuality.
  • She loves acting/theater and desperately wants a boyfriend to show off to the world

——————————————————————————————————

Seth Adalard (formerly Saily Adalard)

  • Transgender (ftm)
  • extremely insecure about his appearance
  • quiet and does not like social interaction
  • extremely grateful for having clones as his family because they were extremely supportive whereas his parents weren’t (they kicked him out of the house after he came out)
  • he is a writer and is currently writing a teen novel on depression and suicide

——————————————————————————————————

Farah Beckett:

  • optimist
  • baby of the group
  • easy to amuse/ people person
  • wants to be a millionaire.
  • is actually extremely intelligent but has learned to hide her thoughts and opinions throughout years of getting bullied
  • her role model is Skye

——————————————————————————————————

Kathryn (Kat) Peligro:

  • From a poor neighborhood in London
  • Ran away from home at the age of 15
  • Used prostitution to survive for a long time.
  • almost fearless because she has been extremely broken by her circumstances that she has nothing to be afraid of anymore
  • Almost murdered Holly twice (the first time because she did not know what clones were and the idea terrified her, and the second time because Holly became extremely irritating at one of their secret clone meetings)
  • currently in the first serious relationship she’s ever been in. It’s actually making her lose her extreme rebellious nature and anger towards the world. Love is a wonderful thing.

Shivani Bhat (me):
  • California-based clone
  • I try to be as optimistic and nonjudgmental as I possibly can be
  • I love learning/trying new things, reading, talking to people (or myself, whatever works best), long walks on the beach, coffee ice cream, complimentary colors, etc
  • I love my clones (except for maybe holly)
  • I have been told that I’m hilarious.
  • I use excessive hand gestures waayyy to often
  • I’m artistic, love acting/performing, and I sing everywhere I go :)
  • orphanblack (aka the best show ever) made me realize that I have clones and that i am completely and utterly obsessed with Tatiana Maslany beyond the point of repair.

WE ARE FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE.
