I’m not sure if this is the right topic to ask this question, but I’m wondering if anyone here would be able to help me out regarding some designs I plan to print out on T-shirts. I have a lot of ideas for fairy-kei style T-shirts, but I don’t know which, if any, of my designs are worth printing and selling. If anyone here is interested in helping me, please let me know so I can either pm you (preferably) or post my designs here for critique.
Thanks so much and I hope some of you guys can help me out. I've been stuck on these designs for a while now...
Aliexpress is known for garbage bag quality after all~
Image from reddit r/expectationsvsreality Its a hard place to shop, but are there occasionally good deals. Just some personal side ramblings, I really do like some of the stuff she buys. The style may be cute even though the quality is not all there. I wonder if one of the reasons why she buys so much stuff is to have more content for her youtube videos? I also wonder if she could benefit in her channel by buying more expensive items and doing reviews. Or maybe she doesn't do many reviews because she wouldn't know what to say other than "it's so pretty" "I love this dress" etc I don't know.
I didn't even like Hetalia -- I was just looking for a conversation starter, so I wasn't lying when I said "me neither". I'm just glad that's all over. I'm actually pretty excited for this party because it'll still be interesting for me to see her all these years later. Happy New Year to you too!
Oh man, when I'm initiating a conversation with someone and I realize that they have a different accent, I purposely begin to speak slower because even my own friends have a hard time understanding my own slurred english. We had a Japanese exchange student in my school and in my friends group and I purposely spoke slower to her-- gosh, I hope i'm not offending her. Apparently, I offended her once by something I said (and it would make a terrific embarrassing story but I think I'd like to hang on to what dignity I have left for today, lol ). The reason why Russians stop talking to her once they discover where she is from is because her country merged into Russia some time in history and so people from her country were forced to learn Russian. However, the country later broke away from Russia. Now when some Russians ask where she's from and they discover that she's not Russian, they don't bother talking to her because she's not a "true russian." (I'm not trying to make anyone look bad by saying this, I'm just stating what happens to her.) I guess it's sorta like an artist getting excited when they see someone else drawing a picture only to walk closer to the person and find out they they're not drawing, they're writing an essay on microbiology and so there's nothing really to talk about between the two. lol.
I would probably have handled the situation the exact same way. You asked a perfectly normal question so what came next wasn't your fault at all. It makes me wonder if someone had made her feel bad in the past by mentioning her ethnicity or something. My mom for instance has a very thick accent and pronounces her "R" differently then westerners do. Because of this, wherever she goes, people (especially Russians) will always ask her if she's Russian (which she's not). This really annoys her not because they asked but because when they find out that she's not Russian, they're no longer interested in continuing the conversation with her. It's not that the action of asking about someone's accent is bad, but maybe the person being asked has had so much drama revolving around their ethnicity that they wouldn't want to talk about it. Idk.
I googled "Pink Hambok" and found what I think is the original- or at least the thumbnail used for the listing of the knockoff product she bought.
Heres a link to the aliexpress listing where she may have bought this from: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Korean-Traditional-Dress-Korean-National-Costume-Women-Clothes-Long-Sleeve-Female-Hanbok-Korean-Dress-Halloween-Costume/32776972628.html I think a couple of things yumi could have done better was to tie a better bow, iron it, and buy a fluffier/longer petticoat. It almost looks like yumi was wearing a shorter lolita-fashion petticoat in the image since the skirt portion folds inward half way through. You can also see wrinkles in the ribbon so she could have done some ironing. However, I don't think ironing would help the the bottom of the skirt too much since it was probably sewn different than in the original image to the left unlike her knockoff. She also could have seriously tied the bow better.
Just a personal preference but UGH I cannot STAND bohemian style clothing. While I think that almost any clothing style can have universally appealing aspects in some sort of way, there's just something about the fashion as a whole that I absolutely hate. I don't like how formless, mismatched, messy and old the clothing appears but thats why some people like it I guess. That's just me.
Someone also mentioned this earlier, but I absolutely hate clothing with random words in other languages that even the wearer doesn't know what it means. Foreign languages are only written on to look "exotic" and "cool". I saw someone at school with this simsons sweater and something about it pissed me off. What does it mean? Is this some sort of reference to a simon episode? What up with the third eye? What's up with the japanese?? Do you even know what it says???
I know this is a month late, but hey, OP gotta deliver. I decided to go with a white blouse (pic too low in quality to see its black polkadots) and a pink ribbon tied around my neck for a school-girl like outfit! I Also wore red lipstick to match my red shoes. I'm really happy with the look and I got a lot of smiles from strangers! Thanks everyone
Wow i have never seen back of the neck contouring. There is no way i would be able to tell what i was doing! Anyway, I thought the valentines day one was pretty cute because the result didn't seem as completely caked as much as the others though. random story but when I was younger, I used to put lots of foundation and powers on my face and tried the same contouring techniques... after a while however my skin started to burn and I apparently developed some weird allergic reaction thing to makeup and now I can only apply extremely thin layers of foundation, thin eye liner and no mascara. I wonder if that was a direct result of caking my face in so many products.
I definitely agree with this. I think big eyes are pretty cool but the ring is so fake and distracting. This ring is actually called the limbal ring. I read somewhere that when you are young, the ring is very thick:
but as you grow older, it begins to disappear and have a fuzzier edge to it:
I think that so many lenses have it because it can make the person look younger and thus kawaii and what not. But i still think that the ones on those contacts are pretty ugly.
