THE GIFSET I’VE BEEN WAITING MY ENTIRE LIFE FOR.
BUT THE LYRICS ARE WRONG HOW IS THIS NOT BOTHERING ALL OF YOU
“Artist” & “Fantasy Author” Matthew Christopher Nelson has a project about to be funded on kickstarter where he is using “re-appropriated” (stolen) images from BJD artists and collectors (myself included) to illustrate his new fantasy novel. He has taken many many images from online accounts and run them through photoshop filters to call his own (to add insult to injury he has re-named the dolls as his characters and mis-gendered a great many of them.)
You can find the bulk of “his” “illustrations” on his facebook page. His current kickstarter project features several stolen images in its preview, as did a past canceled one, implying a certainty that these images are still intended as part of the project.
As of now, he has refused any communication with the original artists to confirm the use of images, or the removal of images and his attitude in recent posts seems to indicate he has no intention of ceasing this project or admitting to what he is trying to do.
Above you can see several examples of the original work and “his” work. All the dolls in the photos belong to and were painted by me. In addition to private BJD owner pix, he is also using official BJD images from companies such as Iplehouse and he’s even snuck in an image of Ezio from the popular video game franchise Assassin’s Creed.

Please signal boost for awareness and action.
Signal boost. Looks like he’s pulled all the artwork off his Facebook page and the Kickstarter is gone, but still something good to put around.
I uploaded an image of my resin BJD onto Den Of Angels, but I was banned because a Hujoo was in the background. What Elitists- It doesn’t matter if I like something else!

Yeah no this isn’t true. The rules actually say you can have your off topic dolls featured in pictures with your on topic dolls as long as they aren’t the main focus (pretty sure being background covers that). What were you REALLY doing?
I have over 30 BJDs and they’re all still practically new in their boxes. I do not enjoy playing with BJDs. I just like buying them.

I jokingly asked Lou if he wrote this
He fucking really did.
This movie is awesome and everyone should watch it.
Also I’m not 100% sure but I think its the same set used for Cabin in the Woods and Evil Dead.
::swoons just a tiny bit:: Look at these dolls!

Bf wants to get their spider lady! I want one of the tiny centaurs. So cute!
What. The. Ever-loving. Fuck.
Wait, wait, I thought making a sweater for your love-interest meant an automatic breakup?
Hm. Maybe what they mean is that you’re supposed to get the ring before you give them the sweater so that when they eventually ditch you after the sweater, you get to keep the ring? You could do this a few times and wind up with a nice haul of diamonds!
It’s because you gotta make sure your man’s not gonna leave you for that super rad sweater I mean damn make sure you’ve got the ring so he’s dedicated to you and doesn’t think he can just LEAVE and start up a new life with some SLEEVED KNITWEAR that you made him.
Look, if Uncle Walter were inclined to leave me for knitwear, I’d kind of be inclined to LET him.
I think that whole myth that sweaters=breakup is kind of a weird mistranslation of old advice. Its not that the act of giving it scares him away, rather that you are investing a lot of time and work into a gift and should be sure he is committed before starting such a project. Otherwise you’ll end up with a bunch of half finished sweaters piled up in the closet like the sad trophies of your broken heart.
