less pure after you’ve touched her
maybe you should take a look at your hands
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.
A conversation with a seven year old.
whenever i see this gif
i think of this one time my sister was riding in the car and she was doodling
and she finished drawing this shark right at a stop light so she turns to the guy in the car next to her and holds up her drawing and shows it to him
and he looks over at it and he makes like that exact expression
I(on the right) go every year to Disneyland with my family ever since I was 8. I love Disneyland so much because I hold so many childhood memories. My boyfriend(on the left) however had never been in his life. It broke my heart when he told me and I knew that I had to be the one to take him to the happiest place on Earth. So for Valentine’s day this year I formed up a surprise for him. I had him sleep at my house the night before and woke him up at 4:30 am on Valentine’s day and told him we we’re taking a trip but he can’t know where we are going so I blindfolded him. We we’re on the road at 5 and got there around noon. He complained the entire 6 hour car ride but when we finally got there and I took off the blindfold he seemed to forget all about the uncomfortable car ride. I then gave him these matching sweaters I made and the day continued to be as magical as my love for him :)
i want to sit on a kitchen counter in my underwear at 3 am with you and talk about the universe
I love the fact that my sister just turned 12 so everytime she says something stupid I just say “shut up ur like 12” and she gets pissed off and walks away
