“I just recently met a girl at an event and she was dancing next to me and she had no kandi I started to put a peace sign up to give her one and she said she had nothing to trade. I told her it was no problem and her face was priceless. Its just amazing.”
“ I’m starting to become really annoyed with all the drug related kandi. I wish people would realize that our scene isn’t about drugs, it’s about the music and our ability to come together as a community.”
"When I go out someplace, I get attention because of kandi. I got asked once if I bought it from Hot Topic. When I said no, they called me a fake because I wore it and made it so it didn’t look real. I hate how kandi is being sold as fakes be "emo" stores. You can’t sell fake kandi, you make it."
"I hate the direction that kandi is going in. I hate that people only want to trade with me for my "good looking" pieces rather than the pieces I put the most heart into. I hate that I only get trade offers when I post new pictures of kandi up. People seem to only be interested in building their collection rather than creating bonds with people."
