Origins: Suihogan & lantern on head // flash usage
Frida is the child of a goldfish mother and a lantern fish father. Given this extraordinary parentage, she has a lantern (like a flashlight) above her tiny goldfish head and is known for lighting up every party. It ain’t a surprise that she’s a hardcore fan of 80’s pop music and couldn’t help to invite her Lomographic friends for a little sing along:
“Flash, a-haaaa – sing it with me! Don’t you love this Queen classic? Just like Freddie Mercury, I like spandex and to rock the party from the Northpole to the Southpole! Without my flash-light, I’d be outta luck. There ain’t nuthin’ better than struttin’ ‘round the pond’s dark corners with a nice n’ tight flash light right above your head. Flash, a-haaaaa! He’ll save everyone of us! And he’ll unveil a lot of secrets that you would otherwise miss: like Jimmy and Lucy smooching in the woods, dogfish eating your underwear, grampa feeding the squid, and neighbors peeing in your yard. It all comes to light once you turn the flash on!”
