nah i still love bts but content creation for real people….isn’t as “satisfying” for someone who thrives on free interpretation?
i feel like anime fandom gives me very much of a safe and wildly creative space, while kpop fandom tends to exert pressure when i don’t draw things the way someone else interprets it.
communication-wise i also feel like i get way lesser fun/productive interactions with the latter compared to when i was in haikyuu/ft fandom, so indulging back into anime has been re-energising my creative spirit, which solely being in kpop fandom didn’t manage to do very well, since the culture felt quite individualistic and at times….lonely
y'all should know that one of the reasons why seats are empty at sens games is because ottawa is a government town and the phoenix pay system implemented by the government of canada fucked up to the point where some employees haven’t been payed in 18 months and most of us still aren’t entirely sure when/if our next pay check will come in so spending hundreds of dollars on tickets to a hockey game (no matter how much most people love the team) just isn’t a good idea right now
Today’s Look:Rainbow Crust. Working off of @fuckaspunk‘s suggestion for my outfit challenge post, I put this together in a couple of hours. Vest, shirt, pants, spiked garters, cross necklace and patches by me! (everything else is thrifted)
Okay, so. Basically I’m tired of hearing people say that makeup is a way to trick/deceive people or something that inherently denotes low self-esteem/love because you’re essentially making yourself look more acceptable in the eyes of society. I was considering this while I did my makeup today and I thought: why do I wear makeup? And the answer was simple: because I fucking like it. I’m not doing it to be more appealing to someone else, I’m not doing it because I don’t think I’m not beautiful without it. It’s very simple, it’s like painting your nails. Why do we do it? Do we do it to trick/deceive people? No. Unless you’re a complete idiot, you know that no one naturally has bright red nails and it’s obviously nail-polish. The same way no one goes around convinced that some people just have huge-ass winged black lines over their eyes. And do we do it because we think we’re ugly without it? No! It’s just something extra, an addition that we like, something to express ourselves. Just like a tattoo, do people get tattoos to look more beautiful/appealing/trick people? No! They do it to express themselves, it’s just a little something more that we want to have on our body. It’s the same thing with makeup, except it washes off and you can change it everyday according to how you’re feeling. And I think that beauty gurus really show this in the fact that they do show themselves without makeup to thousands/millions of people before every damn tutorial. Why would they, if makeup was a way to hide their true selves? On the contrary, I think makeup is a way to show yourself, to make yourself look how you want to and express your personality. I’m so sick and tired of hearing people bash other people for wearing makeup. At the end of the day, even if you don’t agree with me, is it hurting you? Fuck no. Then shut the hell up.
I really want to draw Matt and Steph but I'm afraid it'll be really bad.
My dear, all art is good art! If you draw something, that’s good! You made something, you sat down and created something that didn’t exist before. That is so amazing?? You have the gift of creation and what a beautiful power is it! Who cares if it’s not photorealistic or an incredibly popular cute style?
YOU LITERALLY CREATED SOMETHING FROM NOTHING.
Take pride in your creations! I write ficlets all the time that I’m not especially confident in, but I post them because gotdammit I put effort into it and I tried and that counts! Heck friend, I draw awful gtlive fan art all the time! Even if your content isn’t the most popular or the ‘best’, you still created something based on something you love and that counts for quite a lot in my eyes.
was that the nelson mandela bridge at the end of the black panther trailer??? ARE WE GOING TO GET TO SEE JOHANNESBURG AGAIN IN BLACK PANTHER???? HOLY FUCK IS THAT WHERE THEY TOOK THE EL DORADO INSPIRATION FROM
