(Part 1 of 4) About the ridiculously expensive items GD owns, more than half of them he hasn't bought or spent a single cent on. Many of them are gifts from design houses. It cost significantly less to give him the stuff and have him wear/post pics of it than to pay for billboards, magazine adds, etc. Comparing the 2 amounts, giving him all the items is almost free publicity considering the visual reach he has across Asia. Also psychologically, fans want stuff because he wears it. Win/Win.

Fans give him a lot of items as well. For a while I followed the account of a stalkerish fan of his out of morbid curiosity, you should see the monthly gifts she got him from passport covers that cost more than $200 to entire Thom Browne suits. The items he wears on stage and photo shoots sometimes were provided by her and other fans. A $300 scarf gifted by her, he would wear as a belt. She would provide more than 3 high-end gifts a month and she wasn’t the only one doing this.

People always talk about how he told fans not to send him birthday gifts anymore and praise him for it but fans will always find a way. They chase him down the airport, they drop things off at YG, etc. And sometimes the gift baggies contain a fan letter but other times it’s super expensive items. Same thing for Top. Have you ever seen the amount of ultra expensive gifts UTOPIA sends? Many of the items he’s seen with are all from fans, not even fashion house gifts.

I’m fascinated by GD’s wardrobe as well but there’s something else I find interesting, when he gives stuff away for bazaars like the one his sister did. How many of those items were gifts? I never saw a fan crying that he gave their stuff away. Does he remember where each item came from? Which he bought, which were fan gift, which were fashion house provided? Does he have a notebook where he tracks stuff? Is it Chanel? Did he buy it? Did Karl give it to him himself? ^^

ah yes, i know about TOP, i follow UTOPIA on twitter and i know many many things (sometimes i wonder if not MOST things actually) he wears, including recently in Tazza 2 or in his photoshoots, are gifts from fans or fansites. i’ve never seen a GD fansite on twitter post about the gifts it gave him but i never doubted he also got a lot, so what you say makes perfect sense.

about publicity and gifts from design houses, yeah YB and GD especially post a lot of such gifts on their instagrams to thank the brands. i have also seen someone say in the tags of a GD instagram pic with a man, that this man is one of Korea’s YSL main officials - i’m sorry i don’t remember the details - and that this man has been quite close (business-wise) with GD for a couple years now, as in that he is the one ‘supplying’ GD with many YSL clothes. I suppose this has spilled over into some sort of special relationship with YG now (though idk if it’s been parallel or a consequence to GD&YSL representatives getting closer) - since all of BB wear/has worn many times full YSL on stage, as well as recently 2NE1 and now Winner. So anyways, maybe that helps explain why GD’s (and BB more and more) a bit of an unofficial part-time YSL model these days 

(headcanon : thanks to their special relationship with YSL, YG stylists get the entire YSL collections at low price, bring them in and then each member tries to get dibs on their favorite pieces of clothing to wear first. then when each piece of the collection has been worn at least once, each member spins some Great Wheel of Clothes to see who’s going to recycle which article of the collection. that’s why different members keep showing up wearing other member’s previously-worn clothes all the time)

But yeah, at this point YG/GD have probably a lot of special relationships happening, like, with Chanel too - especially now since from 2014 Karl L and GD, (but kind of also CL and YB, a bit) have been making a show of being almost-bffs - and, more or less discreetly, probably with other designer houses as well. i suppose GD/YB’s continued and quite mediatic presence at fashion weeks helps them catch other designers’ attentions and get more free clothes/collections too lol

about GD’s wardrobe sale THAT IS AN EXCELLENT QUESTION and i have no clue, i would say that it could be he has a separate wardrobe/closet that he keeps for fan gifts and that’s how he keeps up?

it’s important that we pay tribute to Leelah and Zander, but it’s also important that we pay tribute to the five trans women of color murdered in 2015 so far. I have seen next to nothing about these women. They are just as important as Leelah or Zander. They deserve the same recognition. They deserve the same respect. Remember their names. 

So I plan on opening art commissions and numerous ways for people to buy things from me. And I’m thinking of doing so for… personal reasons.

I’m planning on moving out of my home around the end of the year/beginning next year; of course, I’m looking for a job that can help me stabilize in my new environment and what-not. I’m hoping I can start now than later because I’m pretty sure it’ll help me get a headstart on my future.

What worries me, however, is my schooling and the time I give to actually drawing. I’m currently working on a commission and it will be done HOPEFULLY by the end of this week. Another commission MAY be coming in, but it won’t give me much to work on. Then again, I should be thankful that I might be getting the commission at all.

Yeah, so that’s that. I hope you guys will help and support me as this year continues on. ;v;/
