Has Kenna ever been around lgbt peeps? Because "are you still xxx" is such a fucking common occurence ??? I get asked so often if I'm still this or that related to my gender identity or sexuality and most often out of ignorance but also out of curiosity as people can grow and learn from themselves
She is literally experiencing the struggle most lgbt people go through and she says aro/ace are not seen lgbt in the same breath lmao
She should really get a professional trim and whatnot even if it means cutting just 3 good inches but mostly probably a good treatment for her hair if it's frizzy without her doing anything to break/damage it I don't really care that she isn't into hair care, tbh having long hair is much more comfortable than short or medium length... She can put it in a bun and forget about it, and she doesn't have to get it cut too often to keep it fresh looking. And styling can be non existent and she can get away with it pretty well Like she says it herself, she's pretty lazy, so she's actually just... living the comfortable life lol
But also I guess when you've had your hair like that for a while it's hard to think you'll just straight up cut it and whatnot.
Lmao this sounds petty af but I watched bits of her last video and huuuuh girl She wanted a style change and like that's fine but her haircut kind of looks tragic considering her refs? idk it just looks like a poor unkempt cut, not a cute effortless bob cut (pictures and ref pic spoilered to not clutter) This whole thing just annoys me because she goes on about wanting to change her style for something that has a french flair to it and huh nothing really reads french to me... (I've lived in France for 10+ years so you'd expect I understand what she means lol) I mean it's pretty basic girl next door apparel I'd say? But she's so obsessed with it... It's odd, to me, like I just don't relate to it and I don't think I understand the kind of image she's trying to work with
However I appreciate her showing her process, shopping your own stash and making piles etc.
I really like the cut on her, but I'm not surprised the pastel didn't stick. Hair is probably damaged but also if the dye was diluted it washes out easily .It's just a shame that it looks like badly dyed rat tails as of now
Also I like this color on her, I think it adjusts well with her aesthethic (brings in some contrast)
Anyone knows what the treatment she got is? I'm curious
u know what surprisingly enough it seemed evident to me she had unhealthy eating habits at some point so thanks for pointing this out I feel like it's good she opened up about it in her book, though (like it settles things) but as you say she doesn't sound like she got over most of her body image related "issues" (i'd say problems is a softer word)
She often goes on about how looks shouldn't matter but then she also seeks validation from people. She sounds very insecure, but that might be because she is also very emotional (something that I'm not so it tends to run into grating territory real quick) The thing is, Dodie seems to do many things bc people around her react. Stopping bad eating habits bc your audience is concerned is one thing but I doubt she really understand how harmful this has been in terms of mental effect as well as what it does to her body when she did have them -- I feel like if she did, she would be a lot more careful about her whole body posi talk and showing her very much okay body claiming to be round and chubby I don't doubt she is insecure but I doubt she can handle this kind of talk nicely. She doesn't seem very mature or at least she doesn't seem to even understand how what she did was bad etc. Unfortunate when you think of it, because she could have a nice message to pass onto her audience
I can only speak in my own experience but being nb, to me, means I feel at peace outside the binary of male/female. I'm not speaking about gender roles but also about gender presentation. There are plenty of cis people that are non gender conforming, but at the end of the day they still identify with their gender assigned at birth. To me, the way I present myself helps me remove the binary from my appearance as much as possible -- but every NB person dresses up the way they want imho. Non binary to me also means there is a bit of dysphoria going on : everything that I can attach to being very gendered about my appearance makes me feel dysphoric. But the dysphoria is mostly about being too gendered and not "wrong gender" idk if it makes sense. I think it's a bit difficult to explain when it comes to appearance and fashion bc I feel like we should actively work on removing the gender limits in fashion and styling in general lol but I just want to not be seen as a specific gender when I walk in a room Tbh it deals with not feeling entirely comfortable in my body but also not associating with what's expected of both genders in our current time and age I guess. (I know this gives in to gender roles as well but I'm living in the current age so my identity is kinda linked to it I feel)
as for pan/bi to me it's a bit of an empty debate: bisexuality just means non hetero and non gay but both, imho and pan is kind of like the broader term as a bisexual person I don't feel like i'm excluding trans* folks as a whole bc both ftm and mtf people identify as a gender that I'm attracted to for exemple
those are my personal opinions though and i'd be happy to discuss anything with anyone else that might enlighten me a bit more as well
Could it also be a culture thing? Like here the video thumbnail is like "we makin weird faces lol" but it can come across as making fun/disrespecting someone's image to korean users and i have a vague memory of it being a pretty big deal in some communities (but that was like... years ago) Like ofc big names don't want to be seen as unflattering esp without being consulted first
low key think the whole "that's homophobic" is a bit of a joke in the rpdr (drag as a whole?) scene like "wow this lighting is homophobic" (because it makes me, a queer individual, look like shit) but why is Rin using it.........
Pretty sure they are self thaught, I recall they started makeup "seriously" maybe a year ago or a year and half or so. They didn't study makeup at a school or anything like that.
I think it shows because: * Their color combos are often horrible. They are the type to say "do what you want!" and bring colors together that are the same saturation which will make everything look flat * Their poor skills when it comes to applying makeup * Their foundation still look pasty and I can't, I CAN'T for the life of me understand why they don't notice
A lot of their looks fall flat to me, there is no shade to their face and no facial sculpt which is weird.... considering the fuckton blush they usually put on. I'm not a fan of this at all (though I don't believe in contouring, I feel like this kinda pic does not reflect how the look feels irl) and i wish they would try and work with dimension more than just put a bunch of colors and call it a day
