are you ever in the middle of saying something or showing someone something and you realize that literally no one cares
So the internet just gave my tumblr name a whole new (literal) meaning. I was alerted to a photo of me gathering massive attention via a friend who linked me to a Reddit post titled “Don’t worry guys, I’m taking hipster to the next level.”
Apparently some guy on the train uploaded this photo to twitter it has been spreading like wildfire since. Surprisingly when I read the thread on Reddit a lot of it was positive/supportive. I’m surprised by how unfazed and genuinely funny I find the negative comments. People’s theories as to why I am dressed like this, and who I really am are also really interesting.
I’m dressed like this for a number reasons. Firstly, and fore-mostly, I genuinely like the clothes I am wearing. I’ve described my look as “anywhere from hipster chic to kawaii gangsta Harajuku princess”. This is the epitome of the latter. I love sailor moon, I love pink, those converse are kawaii as fuck and yeah fuck you I’m wearing Prada sunglasses. I don’t really dress like this all the time, but I wish I did more often. I mostly don’t because I want to keep the look fresh. I wore this outfit because I had an art exhibition at my college and wanted to express myself.
I also find men’s fashion extremely limiting in both types of clothes, cuts of clothes and colours. Women have so many beautiful options. So I pillage their aisles a lot because I wanna look pretty.
This was also a statement. As an artist I think fashion is incredibly important. This day, I wanted something that not only reflected my personality and artistic sensibilities but also have some social commentary. A lot of my work, or what I want my work to speak about, is sex and sexuality and notions of gender and gender roles. How many of you knew pink actually use to be associated with boys, not girls? Personally I think the idea of “This is a boy colour”, “This is a girl colour” or “Barbies are for girls”, “Power Rangers are for boys” is dumb as fuck. Creating social and cultural boundaries does nothing but limit the potential of a person. By dressing like this I am breaking that boundary for myself and attempting to reflect that sentiment.
Keeps getting better. Rock on, man.
tHIS IS THE FUCKING NEW YORK TIMES ARE YOU KIDDING ME

"Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles add up to 400 pounds of dude”
It’s about the hair
I will end the night of such wonderful asks in my ask-box with a little angsty Destiel I drew cuz now I ship it apparently. Don’t get me wrong, I still ship Megstiel real hard, but I ship this too. And there’s some reallly good Destiel fanart out there that I appreciate. ^_^

wow i had this in my wip file forever. fem! rei and nagisa based on my gender flip design from eons ago. i think girl nagisa would be a wild tomboy while rei is a girly girl who is somewhat prude
sort of a companion piece to the reigisa one. fem!nitori would totally have a girl crush on fem!rin to the point that she would even cut her hair like hers.
