CONGRATULATIONS, HOMESTUCK FANDOM AT SACANIME SUMMER 2014! YOU GUYS WERE TRULY AMAZING AND HAD SUCH A GOOD REPUTATION!!!

No seriously though. I’m referring to the majority of the cosplayers there that blocked the ballroom, screamed during the meetups, smeared gray everywhere, and didn’t clean up after their mess. You guys made the rest of us look horrible, even when respectfully asked to discontinue your game of spin the bottle, you guys could not stop. Fantastic! So here’s how the non-homestucks on the Sacanime page have seen it. 

Now you could argue that “oh don’t pick on the Homestuck fandom, we’re nice :(((” No. You were the only ones that caused trouble during the con and the staff had given up on even trying to stop since you wouldn’t listen.

Prayers out there for the good Homestucks that were so badly represented though, I respect you guys, thanks for cleaning up the mess that the big part of the fandom left for us to pick up. Bless you all. 

Here’s a prime example of the problem with the Homestuck fandom as it currently is. I speak here as someone who is entrenched so deeply in Homestuck I doubt I’ll ever be able to not call myself a fan, so trust me, I understand that there are people who don’t go around making fools of themselves in the fandom. The issue with the Homestuck fandom as a whole is that there is such a large part of the fanbase that is composed of kids who range from thirteen years old to sixteen. I have nothing against kids of that age group—hell, I was one three years ago—but a lot of them still have a very long way to go when it comes to maturity.

The thing is, most of the characters in Homestuck are assholes in one way or another. At the very least, most of them behave like assholes at one time or another. As a Homestuck, I can say that in the comic itself they are mostly very loveable assholes who tend to redeem themselves at least enough so you can shrug and not be all that bothered by their behaviors. But to someone who is younger and has yet to mature enough to understand that the following train of thought is utter dreck, i.e., people who are thirteen to sixteen years old, if you’re cosplaying someone who kind of acts like an asshole, it must be totally okay to run around acting like a total asshole because of course you’re just acting in character. And sure, wanting to be in character isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But it’s all about how far you take it.

To the younger Homestucks who somehow miraculously manage to see this post, because I won’t even begin to pretend I have all that many followers to distribute this to any kind of larger audience, it’s incredibly important that you not take the canon behaviors of characters you’re cosplaying as an excuse to act in a way that is rude, offensive, or otherwise asinine, especially at cons. Be considerate of your fellow con-goers, clean up after yourselves, and if you accidentally smear body paint on someone, apologize profusely. (Better yet, seal your body paint properly. Youtube is one hell of a site.)

Again. Repeat after me. Cosplaying as an asshole is NOT an excuse to act like one. If you can remember that, you’ll have a much more positive experience in your Homestuck cosplay anywhere you go, whether it’s at a con or not. And so will everyone else.

Giving this a Homestuck fandom boost

This makes me sick and ashamed to even be part of the fandom…

I SURVIVED THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!

pretending to be depressed will not get your friends

pretending to self harm will not make people like you

pretending to have panic attacks is not something to be proud of

pretending to be socially awkward doesn’t make you cute

please stop portraying mental illness and self harm as something beautiful 

Heading off to school!

Wish me luck!

Adeline de Monseignat Sculptures

Adeline de Monseignat  is a Dutch-Monegasque artist who lives and works in London. Her project-based sculptural work investigates ways in which inanimate objects can trigger emotional responses and even hold a sense of presence and life. Since completing her MA in 2011 she has shown with Victoria Miro, at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and at the Bleecker St Arts Club in New York, as well as winning the Visitor Prize of The Catlin Art Prize and being awarded a Royal British Society of Sculptor’s Bursary.

In my sculptures I am interested in finding harmony in the contrasting qualities of strength and fragility, with the aim of making the viewer reflect and smile, as my approach is one of an optimistic and playful artist. I like to incorporate qualities to my work inspired by Surrealism, the artistic movement that has inspired me the most. Surrealism has often proven to trick the viewer with visual illusions, which fascinates me. Through my art, I like to defy gravity. The main figurative subject of my pictures always seems to float within the canvas, without any help of a background to place the subject in either time or space. This also translates in my sculptures where gravity illusions are even more enhanced, as working three-dimensionally enables me to do so. These latter are often brought to life thanks to natural materials such as wood, metal and even eggshell. When it comes to inspiration, imperfections in nature are what trigger my curiosity - a drip, a drop, a crinkle, a wrinkle - an imperfection is the sole evidence of life. I am always on the hunt for the perfect defect; the thought or sight of something challenging - shades, lighting and reflections - will immediately arouse my craving for creating. Idioms, expressions, puns and play-on-words are also often the starting point of my work, such as the “˜chicken or the egg’ or “˜wild life’ Last but not least, I’m interested in building a dialogue between the art and the audience who I expect to respond instinctively through their impressions, feelings and senses. My aim is to make people live a unique experience through my art.”
