One of my readers notified me of an etsy seller who knocked off the very heart of my senior thesis collection (the hentai print) from over two years ago.  I'm not soooo mad - this isn't a commercial knock off where someone else is profiting greatly from my idea - but it is definitely annoying, especially because they flat out denied it.  My work is all over tumblr so I'm sure this girl saw one of the uncredited images and figured no one would ever notice.  I took a look at etsy's intellectual property infringement reporting procedures and practically fell asleep reading it (legal jargon jigglypuff nonsense) so I'm probably not even going to bother with that.

You can see posts with my original work HERE, HERE, HERE, HEREHERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE dating back to February 2012 when I first shared the print on here.

Finding these on ebay last week within my budget was... a complete fluke.  And just two weeks after my birthday!  They're not black, and they didn't come with the harnesses but they are perfect nonetheless, and I'm gonna love them more than I could love any other brown pair of shoes.  Only took a little over seven years to get this pair... now let's see if I can ever get a pair of the runway version.

Blogging really isn't a priority right now (obviously), but you can catch up with what I've been doing the last six months on instagram @drippinglazers if you haven't already.  It's mostly photos of nails and drag but... c'est la vie!

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
