Hello, everyone! It’s been a while, but I should finally be able to update in the near future. I’m working on some under the hood changes, such as changing and adding more pages and links, currently.
I don’t think I ever told y'all my name - I’m Joey, and I can be found at deoxysphobia.
A cool announcement: we have an additional admin! Their name is Noël! They can be found at ariadosss. We’ve known each other for a while, and we’re equally passionate about Face Off, so I thought it’d be cool to run this blog with a friend. That means there’s two Archive attendants. I’m thinking I’ll show them where I get everything and how I tag once I’ve finished posting the third, maybe fourth season (and once they’ve got a lighter courseload). When that happens, we may start tagging posts so you know who’s doin’ em!
From this point forward, I will make note of cultural appropriation and racism in makeups made on Face Off. I will do this to the best of my knowledge (and my knowledge may change, of course - life is a process of learning and unlearning). I will attempt to find and provide sources. I will not be perfect, and I will do my best to point it out, but do note that as I am white, I am not the person to defer to.
Anyone and everyone who is knowledgeable on the subjects - that is, people who are part of the cultures being appropriated from and such - are absolutely free to send a word my way. That would be very much appreciated. You can do it via the archive proper or my main blog (currently apolloguises) via ask or submit (I believe both of them are turned on, as is Anon, but please let me know if they’re not!).
A few ultra-examples of what I’m referring to are Gage’s self-makeup from Season 1 and Miranda’s dark elf from Season 5.
