It’s actually so refreshing to see two guys in the public eye with a huge audience not be afraid to dress up and not say anything about being “too girly” while doing so.
This is not to imply what they were doing in the ‘pastel edits irl’ video was specifically ‘feminine’ or ‘traditionally female’ - I just mean it’s nice (and important) to see them be open to wearing clothes/colours people would typically associate with “girls” and instead just forget about that and enjoy themselves - whilst also being open about how it feels…even if some of their comments were exaggerated for entertainment - it’s still just nice and reassuring!
Generally (outside of the video too), Dan & Phil are very open-minded about a lot of things to do with gender, gender roles, gender presentation and expression etc - and speak about it often in recent years.
I know the video may not really be that…. ~deep~ to many but this is something that’s been on my mind for a while when it comes to D&P and I just wanted to talk about it more after that video posted tonight.
Overall, I’m very grateful to have D&P to look up too. I don’t think they realise what even their ‘silly’ dress up videos can do for viewers like me - who are questioning their assigned gender and the struggles that brings internally and from society - and even those who just have difficulties with embracing the gender expression/presentation they find most comfortable.
Have you ever thought about opening a Patreon? I'd totally support you!
HHHHH aaa yes I have been considering it these past few weeks *o* I’m super thankful to ppl who bought me coffee and it would be nice if they could get something in return as well *__*
I’m thinking of offering mainly psd files and hires versions of original art (with occassional fanart stuff maybe) ++ posting sketches/wips of all my stuff? maybe small resources like patterns and textures too haha i make those sometimes lol
since i have a day job i’ll probably only be able to offer few full-rendered art alongside sketches but hopefully it would be possible to get more time to work on art someday instead of pouring everything in my office job lol
idk but omg thank you so much for your interest 💖💖💖
