support people who make fanmade merch! support people who do commissions! support people who make zines!
it’s important to support your series of choice with official merch too (esp if you’re buying directly from the source), but nothing is cooler than fanmade stuff. it takes a ridiculous amount of guts to do stuff like print your own charms and sell them, and effort to gather artists for zines, and hard work to do commissions. and so often you get exactly what you want that you can’t get from the show merchandise.
doesn’t it blow your mind that you can commission someone for whatever ridiculous shit you can dream up, like dio brando doing your laundry and they’ll be like here’s my paypal and you rub your george washingtons all over their face and they’ll bring it to physical form like some kind of art witch??
or like, how you can pay someone to make a plush of your fav character that canon forgets exists?? or how you can LITERALLY be like ‘wow i really want a phone charm of lance from voltron but half naked and posing on a dolphin’ and someone on storenvy is like guess what fam, i got you COVERED
so so so much work goes into it and i’m really passionate about it because directly supporting artists in your fandom = helps generate more of that content AND supports people who are probably idk paying bills feed them your credit card make your dreams come true, everyone wins
I am frustratingly stuck between jobs at the moment, so I set up a Redbubble account to see if I could supplement my nonexistent income a little bit.
These are some of the things that I have up there. Right now it’s all ace-themed designs, and I’m working on adding more to it. I’m also open to design suggestions, so if you have a thought feel free to shoot it my way and I’ll let you know if it is within my graphic design capabilities. :)
It would be great if you could check it out! And even if you don’t want to buy anything, I would really appreciate if you reblog to help spread this around! Thanks!
visits Tokyo regularly to meet up with Kenma, meaning Kuroo was often
there accompanying them, meaning Bokuto was there as well on most trips,
its already canon that Hinata and Bokuto get along really well from the
Tokyo training camp arc so imagine Bo and Hinata talking really
excitedly about something - lets go with a new sweet store bc why not -
and sometimes Kuroo would make an offhand comment to Kenma and Hinata
would pause his conversation with Bo just to reply to Kuroo’s comment
before Kenma can and its oddly witty but because of how Hinata’s
personality is it comes off as very excited but Kuroo already heard that
little comment and starts up a conversation with Hinata where they’re
just retorting to one another. Hinata’s gotten better at this while
hanging around Kenma loads and it sparks this interest in Kuroo.
some point, Bokuto carries Hinata and sends Kuroo this look that
practically says ‘GET YOUR OWN CROW’ that has Kuroo and Hinata laughing.
The day went with Bo and Kuroo trying to keep Hinata’s attention on
them until they reached this old sweet shop Hinata knew of and actually
found it in the mall all of them were in, Bo and Kuroo both had
awestruck and surprised expressions when they saw how Hinata lights up
when taking their orders and talking with everyone in the store. Cute.
The two of them leave the store with a newfound developing crush on Hinata.
getting together: Hinata is really really good at cooking, he’ll hum
and dance while moving around the kitchen and preparing lunch for
himself, Bokuto prefers to bake than cook and Kuroo can make ramen. That
is it. They have a schedule of who lunch or dinner on what day and
whenever its Hinata’s turn, Bo and Kuroo will try their best to just be
near or in the kitchen just to hear their sunshine hum, sometimes even
sing. The thing is, when Hinata cooks, he’s so quiet that its strange.
Kuroo loves it, seeing this smol energetic and loud bean being quiet and
concentrating on something makes Kuroo feel so happy??? like look at my
boyfriend, look at him cooking like a pro, ignoring the faces Bo is
making - bO. Kuroo is the official taste tester between the three, Bo
gets pouty whenever Kuroo gets to try Hinata’s food but then Hinata
kisses Bo on the cheek or lips and stays bright red while finishing the
food - Kuroo gets no kisses bc he got to try food instead (and no he is
not huffy about that at all. Nope). Sometimes Kuroo will sit on a
counter and hum to the song with Hinata before standing up and hugging
Hinata from behind and resting his chin on Hinata’s head. Bo would come
along and kiss the back of Kuroo’s neck and Hinata’s cheek before
nuzzling one of them.
Hinata and Bo get so hyped up and they’ll
literally be yelling excitedly about volleyball or a tv show and Kuroo
just gives them this fond look because Hinata would nod to whatever Bo
was saying and Bo would be pointing everyrwhere and laughing and Kuroo
is just there with his heart being squeezed bc bo i was not ready to see
you two so happy oh my gOD. When they see Kuroo the two share this
devious look (or as devious of a look hinata and bo can make) and the
skip to Kuroo while singing this random song. The two end up serenading
Kuroo who is a blushing mess and covering his face with his hands to
hide it but then gets poked in the side by Hinata (he’s a jab master,
Suga’s teachings have shown to be v effective) that has Kuroo squealing
in surprise. That day, Kuroo could never be safe bc his boyfriends found
out how ticklish he gets IMMEDIATE TICKLE WAR ON KUROO WITH BO RUNNING
AFTER KUROO AND HINATA BLOCKING ALL PASSAGEWAYS AND TICKLING KUROO
WHENEVER HE CAN, THEY ALL END UP IN A PILE OF LIMBS WITH KUROO WHEEZING
BC OF HOW HARD HE LAUGHED> Lemme tell you something my friend, Kuroo
looks goddamn cute when he’s laughing so hard his cheeks hurt and his
face is flushed and his eyes are light and amused and so happy, Bo and
Hinata end up just smooching his cheeks and peppering his face with
Until Kuroo retaliates and tickles Bo and Hinata.
really likes vintage things, he loves to talk about things he bought
that make him really happy because they’re very aesthetically pleasing
to look at (bo interrupts with a ‘you’re very aesthetically pleasing to
look at, kuroo’ and hinata with a ‘the type that we love!!’). Hinata and
Bo saved up and bought Kuroo a present for his birthday, a polaroid
camera, one of those authentic ones that they found at an antique store,
Kuroo was so surprised and happy that the first thing he took a photo
of was his boyfriends waiting for his reaction - bo playing with his
fingers and biting his lips while hinata has this side pout and puppy
(crow?) eyes. The two have a whole wall full of polaroids Kuroo has
taken - of friends, objects, random things from dates etc - and Bo
organised (he wants to be an interior designer/architect - idk which of
those to go with >.<). Hinata got Natsu to help them decorate the
wall besides the pictures and she suggested that Hinata does wall art.
So he does. The wall is one of the most inspiring things in their shared
apartment, Bo works next to it on uni projects when designing something
for his course and Kuroo sits next to it bc it makes him happy. There
is another wall full of polaroids of the three of them, being
affectionate, sleeping, having silly expressions. That one is in their
bedroom bc its so special to them.
For Bo’s birthday, Kuroo and
Hinata planned to take him to an aviary and already had a cake waiting
to be picked up near the place, when Bo arrives he’s silent while he
sees exactly where he is, then he turns around to face his boyfriends,
eyes shining with excitement and tackles them both to the ground and
kisses them everywhere with excited babbles an thank yous and i love
yous and Hinata and Kuroo’s hearts nearly explode when they witnessed
Bo’s reaction to seeing the owls.
There is a section of the
aviary where you can name your own owl and visit it regularly, Hinata’s
mum’s friend works there and so Bo, Kuroo and Hinata actually adopted an
owl. Bo actually cried tears of joy. Intense cuddle pile at home with a
movie playing and lunch and cakes being eaten before they’re long
The three of them swap clothes all the time it
stresses Akaashi and Kenma out. Sometimes Kuroo takes Hinata and Bo out
just to see what they’d look like wearing clothes Kuroo normally would
wear - worst/best decision of Kuroo’s life because holy pie does Hinata
look gorgeous in black skinny jeans. Bo is attractive in anything and
Kuroo and Hinata just suffer on the side. Bokuto picks clothing that are
hella comfy and what you’d wear to classes and very much ‘relaxed’
clothes - sweatpants, those t-shirts are are long af, either length wise
or sleeve wise, hoodies all the sorts. Hinata buys clothes summery
clothes, shorts, crop tops the whole lot bc screw gender roles and
ideas. Kenma sees Hinata wearing one of Kuroo’s t-shirts with owl
patterned boxers and is just e.e shouyou please stay a crow.
AND BOKUTO LOVE THEIR SMALL CROW AND WHILE SHOPPING HE DOES ALL THOSE
CROW NOISES AND KUROO IS JUST 0.0 what the heck was that??? bo: our
boyfriend, hinata, thank you or noticing
this up badly aaaah >.< I hope you like them and thank you for
sending in this ship, nonny!! they’re p r e c i o u s P>LSDOAKGJ
