Ooo! That’s a tough one.

The memories of youth fade so this is as much a guess as anything.

Likely it was either Batgirl or Jeanie. (Yvonne Craig or Barbara Eden).

Hard to remember that long ago and so many to choose from. Maybe Catherine Bach. I was only about 10 when Dukes of Hazzard was on but I knew then what a woman should look like! ::D: Jeannie could be there too because that was in reruns.

Farrah Fawcett.

At least that's the only poster I remember hanging up in my room that wasn't Star Wars...

Determining First...? That is...

I am guessing she is in this image somewhere:

But so many old shows are back in circulation, on the plethora of over-the-air digital channels that now exist, it has hopelessly scrambled my memories of what show (never mind specific actress) did I see first ? and when...

Uhm....  That one's really hard to say, not just because those years are a massive fog, but also because certain things didn't happen until much later in life.  The joys of using sports as an escape, you tend to be constantly moving and losing yourself in whatever particular thing you're into at the time. 

 

Those who don't know me would say it was a particular character I could identify with (those who really don't know me would say it was Morrigan, from Darkstalkers).  Uhm, thing is, I didn't really do the crush thing until my mid-20's, and by then I'd thrown myself heavily into automotive stuff (alongside cycling a bunch) that a lot more things are a blur. 

 

...I'm almost thinking I never did the crush on a character or actor thing.   Some would say I have a thing for ((redacted)) and ((very much so redacted)) as characters, but that just seems silly to me :p

 

I'll identify with characters in various shows, but I won't do the swoon or crush thing... I think...?

That's difficult to remember but these spring to mind:

 

Movie :The movie was released when I was 4, but when I saw it later I found Barbarella ( Jane Fonda) quite interesting.

Series: Kate Jackson ( Charlie's Angels)/Diana Rigg ( Emma Peel from the Avengers)

Music: Debby Harry ( Blondie) / Olivia Newton John.

I haven't been around for all that long so I don't know all the details about the Houses but as I understand it... There are four Houses, à la Harry Potter: Figmentius, Frogwarts, Procrastius, and Tabletop.  Figmentius is typified by mini collecting/hoarding with the dream of painting them some day.  Frogwarts (named for, and I believe led by, @Froggy the Great) is typified by creating new things, usually by converting or adapting existing minis.  Procrastius is typified by, well, procrastination ("I'll paint it tomorrow.").  Tabletop is typified by painting minis to predominantly tabletop standards, possibly on the idea that quantity is a quality of its own.  It's all for fun.  Membership is open to anyone with over 1,000 posts.  I forget who you have to contact to get assigned to a House these days.

Slight point of correction: House Tabletop is all about playing games with the painted figures.::):

I dunno, it's hard to remember. Maybe Carrie Fisher?

Stylish, talented and good-looking... I was working on the principle that opposites attract.

I'm in Figmentius, and I do paint.

What's more I tend to collect paints like I collect minis, I might have just a tad more minis than paints.

 

Hoarding is such a harsh word, it's not like we from Figmentius have no self control.

I can quit anytime I want!

I haven't purchased a mini in...ehhh...I mean...my last order from a webshop was at least...no...I mean I didn't back any Kickstarters since...

I CAN QUIT ANY TIME I WANT!!!!

I wasn't much of a T.V. watcher as a boy. I did like the old movies; So I got to love actresses like Lauren Bacall , Fay Wray, Ida Lupino, & others.

Cartoons were my thing. SO my first, probably only media crush has to be the Oh-So-Sexy Betty Boop.
