Pretty much the first thing I said the first time I saw a Circle K in the US.
This just came in the mail today! I am so freaking excited to finally have a Reevz cowl. His work is fantastic and I’ve wanted this for so long. So much better than my previous cowl!
Now I just have to try and play around with the lenses I used because I don’t like using eye makeup.
USER reblogged your post BLAH BLAH NO BUT LOGIC
Okay yeah but I don’t see why…
YOUNG JUSTICE SEASON 3 ANNOUNCEMENT & SNEAK PEAK
Cartoon Network has finally allowed the Emmy Award winning TV series a third season. Series creators, Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti announce the return of their show.
I THOUGHT THIS DAY WOULD NEVER COME I’M ACTUALLY SOBBING SOMEONE HOLD ME.
This was mean…
"I wouldn’t feel responsible. Bullying and harassment are not matters to be taken lightly or in jest. I should know. However, the "cyberbullying" phenomenon is completely hyperbolic in my opinion. Imagine the "older street tough" of lore taking your lunch money every day, or to be a woman and have a male coworker slap your ass or make other unwelcome advances. These are serious issues that have a real impact on a person’s life and psyche. It is entirely another matter to be on the receiving end of a completely anonymous voice, with no physical presence whatsoever, spilling words into a medium that one has complete control over."
I want to share a conversation with you.
A few weeks back, I published a piece called "Our Internet Empathy Problem." It used the widespread, culturally-accepted harassment directed at Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen as a vessel to discuss the abuse people are asked to put with online. It’s about the difference between how we treat the meaning of words in real-life and “on the Internet.” It’s about how we victim blame.
Attached to the article was an image that highlighted some of the harassment. This image was, for a time, on the front page of Giant Bomb. One of the harassers learned about this, and he reached out. We had a short but terse dialogue that didn’t result in anyone’s mind being changed. The image remained on the site. Many comments—a good portion of them meaningful—were posted underneath the story.
I’ve had some success in changing people’s minds with my work, and it feels awfully good. It’s a one-at-a-time battle, but I take that in stride.
One. Two. That means something.
But the conversation I had with that one person I just mentioned wouldn’t leave my mind. It stuck. See, this individual was paritcularly vile. Death threats and worse. Some of the comments could easily make one sick to their stomach. A complete lack of empathy.
A few days later, I reached out to him. I wanted to have a longer conversation with this person. You’ll notice that I haven’t mentioned who they are. It’s because it doesn’t matter much. The “who” of this conversation a distraction. The conversation is important, one that I felt was worth sharing. The individual on the other side has approved the release of this exchange, and it was my choice to hide their identity.
It’s long, yes, but please stick with it. It takes some twists.
I don’t know if I should be worried about this or not but I feel myself kind of understanding where the other person came from. Comedians make horrendous comments every day and theatres full of people will laugh. The second it’s directly turned to someone though, the complete opposite end of the spectrum arises. They’re scorned and put down for being terrible.
I still think it’s wrong to directly speak to someone in such a way, and it’s nice to see this person come around and realise that what he did was not right. Will it be lasting? Who knows? But I suppose it’s better than getting no where at all.
DC Comics photoshoot!
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering I love you repeatedly as they struggle to escape from my arms
You’re too kind to me :).
Its crazy. I keep getting these notes and I’m like
You’re the kind one. I went to ConnectiCon after feeling a little down from Philly Comic Con. I felt like I connected with no one and that I was the outsider to all these other groups of cosplayers. I was worried it was going to be the same again.
But when I met you guys, you made me realise how much fun this all was. Then you freaking call me DaddyBats which made me feel like I was part of the group. That’s something I’ll forever be grateful for. It’s why I can’t wait to go to ConnectiCon again and see you all again. I’m not some fat guy in a too tight suit (well I am), I’m actually part of something.
You seriously deserve it though cause you clearly put a lot of work in your costumes but you look fantastic in them too. I mean that Riddler was brilliant. I just think the popularity of Batgirl is for a lot of people, Barbara Gordon is the Batgirl we know and love and the fact you’ve caught her so well is what draws a lot of people to you. That’s why you have so many notes.
So I have a little story for you guys. Saturday at Katsucon I was really upset, I wanted to throw out my Zelda cosplay from some of the stuff I heard people say about it as I walked around.
I knew going into this custom design that many people wouldn’t get it but I wasn’t expecting how rude some people would get.
There were comments such as “Who the fuck is that supposed the be” and similar things which I have never experienced in any of my years doing cosplay. I was devastated and still really am not a fan of this costume and consider it a huge failure right now.
That being said the photos that Darryl took made me gain a little hope, they came out lovely and I really needed that little boost.
I went from liking how I looked when I tried it on in the room to quickly wishing I never wore.
Due to all the wonderful people on facebook saying how much they enjoyed this costume it made me feel a little better about it. I love all of them and all of you guys on here as well. You guys are so nice to me and I don’t feel I deserve it ;3; Thank you everyone!
A Zelda/Assassins Creed mashup is pretty effin cool and if you don’t like it or get it.. theeennnn keep your trap shut :D they looked awesome! No need to be rude about it. :)
This is absolutely badass. You look awesome in this.
