Being a Women...

... is an Insult

I read this in on one of my friends Tumblr's when I first didn't have one and it this instance occurred in class a couple weeks ago.

Two boys were talking across the room and one asked for a "favor". The other rejected whatever was asked and the first one said,

"Don't be such a girl, man".

What do you mean "don't be a girl"? Is it so wrong to be a girl; a women?

I've heard class mates even use words like: slut, bitch, skank etc. and they're used so casually and frequently that their meanings change.

It's just as bad when there was that craze and people said, "That's so gay". (and some still do)

Another instance was in English. We're reading and analyzing poems and it's implied that there are prostitutes in one stanza. Then some guys in the back started blurting out different words:


"Sluts", said another.

Then it just got worst.

"Bitches" (He got sent out of the classroom)

Seriously!? One, are you not intelligent enough to hold your tongue? Obviously not. Second, that word is being used incorrectly. Prostitution is not another word for bitch. Thirdly, and once again, words being used to lightly.

It makes my blood coil whenever I hear things like this.

Dear Models,

You all know that I "run" Dictator Fantasyland and have fashion shows at local anime conventions. The "issue" that's been going around however is somewhat displeasing.

It's not necessarily drama, it's just something that I have to get my thoughts out about it.
Something is going around in the air that, a model(s) isn't cool/good enough/bad ass/etc. enough to be modeling for Dictator Fantasyland.

Whatever model of mine (even temporary ones) have this mentality,

You best be getting rid of that~

There's an obvious reason as to why I chose you as a model. I, personally, think you're the bees kness/the cat's meow/the shit. Why would I want you as a model, if you don't hold those qualities? (plus other interests~)

As a Dictator Fantasyland model, you should know that... as the person responsible for how this business is portrayed is heavily laid on my shoulders. I'm not going to have this line look like crap, and you should know that I won't let you look like that either.

I won't and will not let you fall.

If I let you fall, (which will never happen) I will fall with you. You won't be going down without me.

I felt that should be put out there. Models of DF were chosen by me for a reason. Don't think I'll make you look silly. That's just out of the question~ (You're obviously going to look FIERCE)




All you other people who read this!~

Our next fashion show will be at Phoenix Cactus Comicon 2011! This May !

I only need three more models

I will also be holding a panel, Friday at 12pm. Come check it out! !

Grandpa Sweaters

I like the feeling of being warm. To have that sense of coziness. Being safe and content with my life.

One goal I have for my life is to learn how to love and to express those feelings. Hoping that they are being portrayed correctly.

When that happens, I'll be wearing a grandpa sweater. It seems like the best way to show that person that, I feel content and warm to be around you.

Je tiens à vous aime plus d'un grand-papa chandail.

Taiyou Con

After a long wait, I have finally found my photos and such!

That's our table! The experience was good, but always a bit overwhelming (then also, underwhelming) I always worry if I can even make $5.

But we did sell art! I broke even and A was about $5 less to being there. Next time for sure!!

I took photos every day at the photo booth. Don't I look fierce?

Sex Pistols tee, "God Save the Queen". Accessorized with: crown & lock necklace (which you can't see D: ) Fake Ruki-inspired glasses.

With my lady, Cho. She visited us from Georgia. She was dressed as a Harajuku Decora-esque kid.
Cho: Baby blue corset accompanied by a blue and white checkered with pink & purple tulle tutu. Adorned with White and red bead necklace, my Hello Kitty falls. Black eye patch with a white ' X '.

I don't remember if this was after or before the fashion show. But damn, I look good no?
Black bondage straight jacket. Inverted cross & lock necklace. Lizard Ring.

All in all, Taiyou con was a great adventure for myself. I learned new things with, selling tactics to just people. Also, made some new friends ( :heart: ) and new stalkers. If you bought my art or commissioned me, I am truly thankful. Your support means a lot.
If you also said hi and we chatted, it was very nice. You kept me entertained ;D
