I’m a fish don’t you tell me otherwise
Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.
Do NOT out anyone.
this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.
Also - don’t feel pressured to come out. You don’t have an obligation to put yourself in an unsafe situation for any reason.
I saw this promotion in ny local Harmon’s grocery store in Farmington, UT. I pointed it out to my boyfriend and said “Holy shit I follow her, someone else stole her likeness!” And had to snap a photo to send you.
What was wrote to me
This is actually drawn straight from a photo I took in this makeup on my Facebook x.x
AND OMG, I was also just sent photos today of the Halloween company Elope was apparently the one manufacturing those horns with my makeup design on it and are currently using it on their packaging across the US.
Oh man, I have so many phone calls to make tomorrow X_x;
Hopefully I can find out who the artist is (This does look awesome though haha! Holy shit man…)
I sent this! I was so fucking angry I was spitting everywhere when explaining to him about how that company was selling your image without consent, we actually got kicked out of the store! Seeing this got my blood boiling, companies stealing artists image(s) is an issue near and dear to my heart; Forever 21 has made profits off of my friends drawings which she posted on her private MySpace, and they turned into a T-shirt. I think Harmon’s is just using it as a Halloween promotional poster, and not actually making profit, but still. :/
I CANNOT thank you enough for sending this to me! <333 I am already dealing with that one Halloween company that stole/copied my faun makeup (to a TEE) design to sell their horns (And now has it on their packaging across the US) and now this?? I use this makeup to promote and sell my OWN products, I am NOT okay with other companies using it! It’s still taken without my permission and being used to PROMOTE their store, therefore, it IS technically being used to make profit from, that’s what promotional posters are for. This is ridiculous. What the hell is so hard about people asking me?
