Not to WK the OP, but... Who decides whats relevant and what's not in regards to snowflakes? People discuss here Tay's relationship, Tay's finances, Tay's family, Tay's friends, Tay's spending habits, Tay's wardrobe, etc. But Tay's sex life is off limits? Even after people are speculating elbow-san is her sugar daddy? I honestly want to know. I also agree that lately there has been a lot of people just hating for the sake of hating, calling personalities ugly just because and not adding anythinh of relevance beyond "she look so ugly here", "she looks old", etc. I am all for criticizing, but bashing? No. There's a reason I am not in LC or KF.
Tokyo Mirage did the same thing on their US version of the game (and added cersorship to bikini parts). It is all set in High School, characters talk about being underage (-18), and the only part where it says they are older is on their profile/character's sheet. So, yeah, doesn't surprise me from TB.
I don't know if they have or haven't agreed to help promote her in return, but I do believe it is a way often suggested by entrepreneurs to increase followers and have influencers notice you -even if they don't return the favor, at least they know who you are. As according to this websites (there are many more, but for now I'll just post this ones): https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/273372 https://medium.com/adventures-in-consumer-technology/how-i-reach-over-1-000-000-impressions-a-month-on-instagram-6b3248fe475f http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/build-an-engaged-instagram-following/ ETA: I do agree that there must be a right way of doings shout-outs for increasing one's number of followers. Could be that HimeAhri isn't aware of it -and she wouldn't be the first nor last IG user to not know it. PLUS, something similar happens with Twitch when people host each other, maybe she got her ideas from there.
Isn't this what you call "networking"? I wouldn't exactly call it "sucking up to people". I think she is just doing what many PR and marketing agencies advise to brands: promote others to help promote yourself, build relationships with those on your same area.
I think giveaways are a great way to increase visibility online, but she is doing it wrong. If I was here, I would have used that jacket to enhance the audience's interaction with my media -to gain more likes, followers and comments; all of which IG takes into account to decide to promote you on their home page. So my giveaway would go something like this: - To participate, you need to be following me on Instagram and Twitch. - You need to like this post, and follow "jacket's brand" IG (to also help them and build stronger business relationships). - Then, you must comment below the IG photo saying what's your favorite thing about D.Va, or something silly -IDK. ---- On a side note, I really liked this comment: And I am glad the HimeAhri took advice -from here or anywhere else- to improve her camera settings and interact more with the audience. Last stream was much better! I even consider following her.
Wanted to add (I don't know if it has been mentioned before), that she needs to seriously Google herself, because there is some very public information online that shows her address -which I find it very scary, especially considering her audience. Ahri, if you read this, please be careful
I agree that she is pretty -again, at least in IG, I thought she was simply nice when I saw her on her Twitch. I can understand her fan base, but not the donations. I can see why people would follow her on IG or see her Twitch (usually between 6-14 viewers), but not really why they would donate -especially when she hardly says "hi" or talks with them. I think she could become a great influencer, but she needs to step up her game. I find her D.Va photos not so flattering to her cosplay. When I first saw them I thought she was cosplaying as a motorciclyst. It wasn't until I saw the gun and lines on her face that I realized it was D.Va. Of course, I am less familiar with OW but still! So, IDK if HimeAhri reads here, but if she does, here are some tips she can use to improve as an entertainer and an IG cosplayer: TWITCH INSTAGRAM I personally LOVE her IG aesthetic. The soft, blush colors, it is very feminine. This shows effort and dedication. That being said... COSPLAY Take inspiration of these cosplayers. Choose poses that are different and flattering, choose locations that make you seem like part of the video game/anime, or go with simple backgrounds which are much more appealing for a poster. Invest on hiring a good photographer, or search for a photo-student to help you take and edit your pics.
I believe she wants to go to Walt Disney World in Florida -given her comment saying that "You'd think living in Florida my whole life it would happen..." (I am also guessing she lives in Florida). If that is the case...Guess what, HimeAhri? I just found a much cheaper package So, it is only 824.44 Dlls + taxes. You'll be stating from Friday June 3rd, until Monday June 5th (that way, you can spend June 4th -your birthday- at Disneyland). You'll have access to 1 park per day -any park- and be staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside; which according to "Travel+Leisure" is perfect for "Young children who are completely princess-obsessed. The Royal Guest Rooms come with light-enhanced fireworks headboards, genie bottle faucets, and fairy tale touches throughout. Though the price point is average, the property appears far more high-end simply because of its gilded theming." I think this place would make for amazing IG photos~ Now, I know you might get hungry, so you can upgrade your package to 963.17 Dlls + taxes and include the Disney Dinning Plan, which grants you: 1 quick-service meal per person, per night; 1 table-service meal per person, per night; 2 snacks per person, per night; and 1 drink mug per person, refillable at any quick-service restaurant at your Disney Resort Hotel. Way under 1,500 dlls! I mean, assuming you are only paying for your share -in case you plan to go with someone else- and you have your own money to pay for any extras inside the park. Yeah, it might not be the whole "one week" deal, but it is a start and perhaps eventually you will be able to stay longer -when you're over 22. For now, it will at least let you cross it from your pre-22 bucket list. ----- Ideas aside ---- I don't mind if she insists on making money of the Internet (a business in which many have failed), but I am skeptical she will be able to reach any financial goal because -let's be honest- she isn't offering anything of value. One could argue that even Momokun offers something for the high sums of money she asks -if anything, those porn-ish images- and that many Twitchers at least sell the idea of company and entertainment by a nice looking girl. But in Ahri's case...well, she isn't selling her body (not implying that she should), her cosplay shots are nice but not exactly poster material, and her streams are really boring -you can't even see her face well enough and she hardly ever interacts with her audience. She could reach 963.17 dollas -in a period of 3 or 5 months- but she needs to start giving something in return for people's money. It is not enough what she is doing, and for someone who apparently started twitching early this year, she is asking way too much money -most people start by asking for 100-200 dlls at the most. It is sad, because this could be a work opportunity...and instead, she is limiting herself to beg for money. BEG! Begging, when you can see the background on her Twitch cam and realize, this girl lives well and could easily get a job -even an online one.
I really want to like Ahripop, I really do. I love the way she looks on her IG pictures (not sure about IRL, becaus I've neve met her and her Twitch camera is too crappy), but her personality is just...boring. Like, seriously boring. She tries hard to express emotions and her streams are usually so silent that they become uncomfortable. She only sounds genuinely interested when someone asks about donating. So, I understand why she is using her body more and more. She doesn't have much else going on for her, and she is getting tired of waiting for someone to donate her 100+ dolars in her stream. I mean, come on, she is asking for 1500 dlls for "birthday and stuff". I have to wonder, how exactly is she going to spend 1500 on her bday? Plus, I know way more famous streamers than her that usually don't ask for more than 500 dlls.
Found those drawings on another shop. Apparently, they belong to Kanannbo (http://kanannbo.tumblr.com) an artist or company (can't read japanese) who made them for LINE -to be used like stickers. It would be nice if she at least acknowlege the creator. https://store.line.me/stickershop/product/1046635/en
Could be the angles, lightning, pose and much more. When you take selfies, you are in control of most of the photo process, which means you can take as many photos as you want until you found one. Selfies are also usually taken from an "above" angle, helping your face look slimmer and hiding unflattering parts of your chin -if you have them. In a Selfie you can also search for a powerful source of white light that will illuminate your skin and make it look way better (i.e. you can stand in front of a window). The small framing allows you to control how much is shown in the selfie, meaning that you can choose to show nothing about your background (again, maybe you are in front of a window in your kitchen, but don't want people to know that). And if that wasn't everything, many cameras nowadays have beauty apps included that lighten up your face, make your eyes pop and even re-shape your face shape. I guess this is this girl's problem. She isn't ugly (at least, not by my standards) but she doesn't know how to pose in front of a camera -unless it is a Selfie. This is why so many photos of her are unflattering, this is why when someone else captures her it looks bad, this is why she probably prefers to upload photos taken by her
I have zero knowledge about her ex, but if he was indeed an abuser I am happy for Lonbon that she was able to get an order restriction to keep him away from her. I am aware that there are A LOT of women who fall victims of abuse, and never get to see the abuser being punished (or even recognized as an abuser) by the law. So good for her! However, I fail to see why she had to include the "but truth is..." part. I mean, are you asking for pity in a self-motivation post? This is what fails me to empathize with this girl: that she is always rubbing in your face how ill she is -even when the context doesn't ask for it. This is also the reason why I can't taker her past Facebook updates seriously, because she isn't looking for other to "acknowledge her illness" (as she tried to state it), but for her followers to feel sorry for her. In a way, she is helping create even more stereotypes and discrimination against ill people; because instead of making them look strong, independent and powerful (despite or along with the illnesses); she makes ill people look as weak, need and pitiful.
I applaud her for making a video on a topic that many still consider to be taboo: menstruation. However, if this was an advertisement video (aka. If she was paid to sell the cup), I'll be honest and say that it failed -at least for me. Her face, her acting, her voice...It gives me the idea that the cup is horrible, hurtful and that I won't enjoy using it (I know this might be false, but from her sole expressions this is the impression I get). Honestly, if I have never heard from the menstrual cup before and this was the first time I encounter it...I would think it is a disaster of a product. Yumi looks so uncomfortable, in so much pain and the complete opposite of what she is saying. "It doesn't feel uncomfortable", she says while making an uncomfortable gesture. Bad, bad advertisement
It could be that she doesn't recognize herself otherwise. Like, she got so used to seeing her face looking a certain way, that whenever she tries something new...it doesn't feel right to her; it doesn't feel like herself. A friend of mine actually suffers from this. She started wearing heave make up in high school, following the dark/emo/heavy eye liner trend. She would wear it every day, all day. When she got to college, it was the same deal. A couple of times she was offered new make up ideas to improve her style -more natural, less heavy, colorful, etc.- and while she tried some for a while, she would always go back to the heavy eye liner and cheap brands she was used to seeing on her face. She once confessed to me that any other way she just doesn't feel like herself. And without her make up, she looks at the mirror and hates what she sees...she refuses to acknowledge herself in any other way than the way she is used to. It is sad, but true
