He was glued to the spot, stunned as he watched her dance in mostly empty club. It was late enough that the dance floor was practically deserted. He’d walked away for five minutes to pay their tab, and Korra slipped away to get one more dance in, even if it was by herself.
Her hips swayed from side to side as she closed her eyes and drank in the music. Those hips simply hypnotized him and it wasn’t until Bolin sidled up to him, waggling his eyebrows, and said. “Soooo. Korra looks like she’s having fun.”
Mako shook himself, glared at his little brother, and said, ” Oh shut up.”
Good God, what is with people bashing with how a cosplayer looks like? If they're having fun and they love the character they're cosplaying as, LEAVE THEM BE!!! I greatly respect if they can pull of the character's personality and the outfit. I don't care if they don't have the same skin tone as the original. No one can literally BECOME the character... And I'll still follow you no matter what. I stand by your stance on this issue.
You should set up a meetup at AX! I can send you map of LACC's layout if you want. ;3
waahhhh i’d feel so silly setting up a meetup for just silly old me >_____< especially way out in the west coast scene where nobody knows me and i’ll be so lost in the sea of amazing west coast people @_____@ but i guess if people show interest in it i’ll try to set one up when it gets closer??? maybe i can get another cosplayer to do it with me ahaha this is so strange!
Problem being that even if we get enough signatures on every petition, Whitehouse.gov and other, that’s all it is, signatures.
The 3rd party site ones will get sent out to whoever they end up sending them to in Congress/the White House.
The WhiteHouse.gov ones will only guarantee that it will seen by someone.
They won’t actually change anything, only [possibly] guarantee they’ll be seen by the higher ups.
Individually e-mailing/contacting state representatives, congress people, and even the president is a more effective way of getting word out there. With a petition you send one big list to these people.
There is only one opportunity for these names to be seen and even then they probably won’t all be looked at. (Unless the petition gets repeatedly sent out? I’m not really sure??)
When a group of individuals sends a direct e-mail to these people they have multiple times they are seeing the problem. If enough people send these individual e-mails there’s gonna be a lot of mail on the same topic to sort through and through this becomes a much more effective way of us saying to these people ’HEY! WE HAVE A PROBLEM AND THIS IS IT!’
Like, for example, back in September/October my mom kept pestering me about sequestration (tl;dr - cutting spending in certain sectors due to gov’t budget issues, which inevitably cuts jobs) that was going to be happening in the defense/military/telecommunication/aerospace sector of the country, something that she works in (aka she had a very high chance of losing her job). She showed me a webpage that was against this government move. However, there was no petition. They instead had a form you could fill out that was an e-mail that would be sent to your state’s representatives, your state’s Congress rep, and the President.
While I don’t quite know how the sequestration ended up (seeing as my mom still had her job and she didn’t have much news about many other people losing their jobs at the company), I did receive e-mails back from these people that were e-mailed! Yes, about 3 of them were automated e-mails, but I think one of them was an actual e-mail written by a person (it seemed too personalized to be automated but you never know now-a-days). I had also added quite a bit of my own opinion to the e-mail on top of the preset text we were given so I was able to form an argument and get my opinions across.
Long story short: DON’T JUST SIGN PETITIONS AND HOPE FOR THE BEST. E-MAIL AND PHONE SPAM THESE PEOPLE IF YOU REALLY WANT THEIR ATTENTION ON ANY ISSUE!
Hey there! Are you still part of the PixelDrip gallery this March (I just checked the website to see if I accidentally missed it this month). ?
Well if it isn’t my favorite stalker. How are you doing dear? I will definitely still be apart of the gallery in March and plan to make the trek to attend as well. Very much looking forward to the experience! Jesus Tapdancing Christ I’m not worthy.
If you show up make sure you say hello and I’ll give you a complimentary glomping :D
What are your dream conventions that you wish to go to? And would you go to Anime Expo? (since that's the closest to me. ;3)
