Meet An Alcmenie - Cloth Papa Edition | Dom Blasonato
My name is Domenic, born to Italian Parents. I am the husband of the famous Alcmena Creative Director, Nikki. Father to Alcmena model, Leeloo and stepfather to Nikki’s 2 sons. I’m 35 years old and have been in the Graphic Design Industry for over 15 years. Nikki still beat me to the creative director title. I am one of 3 siblings and grew up in western Sydney. My hobbies include Drawing, Go-Karting and Skateboarding. I would love to open up some type of creative business together with Nikki in the future.
What prompted your decision to use cloth nappies?
It was a mutual decision with Nikki. It fit our eco, earth conscious lifestyle and they looked damn cute.
What has surprised you the most on your cloth journey?
How easy they are to get used to in terms of fitting and cleaning procedures.
Can you share some advice for dads who might be sceptical about using cloth nappies?
It’s worth it in the long run. Better for landfill, better for your baby’s skin, they look nice, your bin won’t be taken up by disposables, and if your kid falls on their butt, they have extra padding.
What is your favourite Alcmena print?
It's not very cool, but I really like…
What would be the theme song of your life?
Through the fire and flames – Dragonforce.
If you could make a difference in the world, what would you be known for?
Training my daughter to be like Leeloo from The fifth element to foil the plans of evil tyrants planning a future apocalyptic war.
What is your most treasured possession?
Hmmm maybe my watch Nikki bought me for our wedding.
What’s the best mistake you’ve ever made?
I really can’t think of any mistake that turned out positive :\
Who or what lights you up?
When I walk in the door coming home and see Leeloo running at me with a big
smile, then look up and see just as big of a smile on Nikki’s face.
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
That one of my drawings looked like it belonged in the Sistine Chapel.
What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
I attempted to become a jockey at 23yrs old.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A genie gives you three wishes—what are they?
1. The ability to know the two wishes that will make me and those I care about the happiest.
3. See #1
If life were a video game, what are some cheat codes?
