if you just want art without pictures of cute insects, politics, personal text posts, and other junk cluttering up your dash, i'd point you to my DA account instead.

This is an important post
tell me something embarrassing you used to wear in high school that at the time you thought was super cool but now you look back and you cringe yourself into the fucking ionosphere.
I went through an Anne Rice period in junior high, and I would wear those little plastic Scarecrow vampire fangs to class. Thought I was hot shit, very mysterious and original.
*closes eyes and remembers hand made clothing. Re-purposed blue jeans. Velvet. Patches. Japanese words written in sparkly puff paint on everything. Dragonball Z shirts exclusively.*
*jolts from horrible waking nightmare with a start* Guh!!
for about six months in sophmore year i thought it was the best idea in the world to wear my hair in high pigtails on my head
also one time i wore capri pants and ugg boots and those were dark times
i was a scene kid so i teased my hair super big and had greasy straight-across bangs that i put hello kitty barrettes in. i also had this hideous rainbow-striped “rave dress” and i thought that accessorizing meant wearing as many shitty plastic bracelets as humanly possible
junior high was the real nightmare though, i was deep in my mall goth phase and wore massive platform boots with striped tights and tiny miniskirts and invader zim shirts because i thought i was emily the strange
in junior high i had a button-up white short-sleeved shirt with a shitty painted Jack Skellington face on the breast pocket and a baggy pair of black parachute pants with saggy belts on it that i wore almost every second day for a whole year. i had to mend both of those things by hand (meaning noticeably shoddily) because my mom hated them so much, and i couldn’t even wash the shirt bc the paint i put on it wasn’t even meant for fabric. that was back when i had a crusty eyebrow piercing that kept getting rejected and frizzy-yet-greasy blueberry black hair, so i was 100% the grossest emo kid in my school.
i had this sweater that had big thick horizontal black and white stripes that i’d wear over my school uniform shirt, plus my black uniform shorts and some knee high black and white socks to match the sweater, and black skate shoes + long black hair with a side fringe + bad white foundation and heavy eyeliner smudged all over my eyes
Black JNCO jeans. Various RANDOM QUIRKY TEEN quote t-shirts, like “KEEP STARING, I MIGHT DO A TRICK”. Hawaiian shirts. I looked like Weird Al had thrown up in a Hot Topic.
i didn’t go to high school but in middle school i wore hawaiian shirts and slip-on shoes i squirted dye on to make them colourful. i even had a perm. basically i wanted to be weird al and i tried my damnedest.
i thought “ugly sweaters” were soooooooo quirky and cute but i mostly just looked like a dorky bill cosby
i also had huge aviator glasses for a while but I don’t regret that
This $150 hot topic coat with duct tape on the sleeves. It was my pride and joy, once upon a time. I wore it when I wanted to dress to impress.
To help your mental image: at the time I was sporting long unkempt livejournal hair with a nasty-ass faded green (or pink) diejob.
Other things I had at the time: A Gaia Online hat, converse shoes with my DeviantArt url written on the side, and a crappy hand-made tail (which I thankfully had enough foresight and self-awareness not to wear to school).
I am never coming back to this site ever again. I guess when a Japanese person wants to talk about feminism and politics in anime they will be shut down by hundreds of non-Japanese people. Some white people even have the gall to claim that they are “familiar with the cultural context”.
I have received massive amounts of hate mail with people telling me to go kill myself, calling me slurs such as “jap”, calling me transphobic/homophobic and even telling me that my experiences as a Japanese trans woman are invalid because Japanese males look “naturally feminine”. I have been very anxious and I couldn’t get any proper sleep last night.
Thank you to everyone that supported me. I appreciated it and I would have liked to stick around longer but I will take my leave now.
just so people know, this is the person who wrote out that incredible reply calling out tumblr’s white as fuck feminism
