Hello guys, what up? haha yea so uhm you know how I´m trying to earn my own money and try not to depend on my parents, well the thing is the business is slow. I had an expo last weekend and it was great for me i get the chance to pay some school stuff, but some friends of mine recommended me to participate in an important expo that would guarantee a huge success, which is in May. Sadly it costs alot to be there. I managed to get it cheaper with some friends but I´m still low on money. So here comes the S.O.S. message:

I know this is alot of a hazzle but it would really mean for me, even if you cant commission me, at least spread the word.
So far my goal is $200 dlls ( that includes the cost for the expo and my new material for art such as plastic bags, money for prints and other artistic supplies )
Today, I was at the Japan Expo, which is a huge convention in France about manga, anime, comics, video games and Kpop. I was hanging out around the stands of two Kpop stores and one of them was playing a Kpop MV medleyon a screen. I was watching the medley, singing along with my friends and other fans, happily watching few seconds of some of my favorite groups’ MVs.
When ‘TopDog’started playing, I was really happy because I knew that it was the only ToppDogg MV I would be able to see. But I couldn’t even enjoy these few seconds, because a group of ARMYs starting screaming for BTS, covering completely the sound of one of my favorite songs. What the fuck?! At least five BTS MVs were played during this medley and the two stores kept playing BTS songs throughout the whole day. You couldn’t shut up for just a few seconds?!
And it wasn’t just during ToppDogg’s MV. These groupies kept screaming for BTS while other MVs from other groups were playing. Does the word ‘respect’ mean nothing to you? I couldn’t enjoy some of my favorite songs because some girls absolutely needed to see only BTS on the screen!
Don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying all ARMYs are like this. Of course not! I consider myself as an ARMY now and I’m friends with a lot of ARMYs who are lovely people. This is aimed to all the Kpop fans who need to see their faves everywhere, all the time, not caring about other groups. Can’t you just shut the fuck up for a few minutes? I was trying to enjoy a few seconds of my favorite group but no, you had to scream for yours!
Also, at this convention, I was wearing a ToppDogg hoodie and my French ToppKlass t-shirt, and some Kpop fans kept looking down on me. There was nothing wrong with my attitude, I was actually pretty quiet, not doing much, so I can only assume it was because of how I was dressed. What the fuck is wrong with you?! Why do you have to give me dirty looks for wearing clothes representing my favorite group when you are doing the exact same thing? Is it because I like a group that isn’t as popular as yours? Then fuck off.
I don’t like iKon. But did I give dirty looks to the girls who were wearing iKon masks? No. Because I don’t judge people for their taste in music. You like iKon? That’s fine. You wanna wear their mask? Perfect, that’s great! I actually encourage that! Show to the world who you love but don’t fucking disrespect others because they don’t like the same thing as you do!
When a BTS MV was playing on the screen, did I scream for ToppDogg, covering the whole song so that you couldn’t listen to it? No. Because I respect other fans who want to enjoy watching their favorite group on TV.
This was my first time going to the Japan Expo and I had a great time until these groupies pissed me off. Learn some respect, dammit!
An important sign at the expo: “Please be aware that these cages are NOT the full time residences of these animals, they are in the smaller containers so that they might be transported here and put on display for your close up viewing.”
Reptile expos aren’t just for buying and selling. There’s a lot you can learn at one and I think it’s great they had an adult Burm (15'8") there for people to see what those pretty little babies grow up like. Seeing these animals up close promotes responsible ownership- hearing “they get big” and seeing one for yourself are two very different things! Remember when you see show pictures: those small spaces are NOT their homes. They’re just temporary space.

How to initiate contact
Method 1 : The Introduction
Stand at average speech distance from me (or closer depending on noise level)
Shoulder tapping, arm touching might be necessary in order to attract attention (don’t abuse it tho, I’m sensitive ok)
Use type-phrase “Hello Juliette, my name’s [insert name], I am [insert url] on tumblr ! How are you/ Nice to meet you / Curse you and everything you stand for “ (pick adequate ending according to your situation)
Method 2 : Secret Code
Stand at uncomfortably short distance of me, preferably from the back
Lean towards ear of your choice
Use one of the following reaction-inducing code phrases :
- “hail Julius Brocalus ” - “Surrender, cylinder” - “face me, Milker Maker” - *irish accent* “General Lamarque is dead” - “Do the math nerdanel, DO. THE. MATH.” - “VIVE LA FRANCE” - “ a red sun rises ” (pause for emphasis, wait for reply) - “ ami, entends tu le vol noir du corbeau sur nos plaines ? ami, entends-tu le cri sourd d’un pays qu’on enchaîne ?” - etc
Method 3 : Challenge
Stand at any geographical point of the con
Scream “HAH I bet tumblr user Cy-lindric can’t quote the entirety of french romantic drama play Lorenzaccio !”
Greet me as I meet you in the pit, eager and vaguely offended
That’s about everything I can say, have fun everyone
