Anonymous said: I would kill myself to be as pretty as you

That’s almost very sweet, but please never, ever say anything like that. I don’t want to lecture you, and I know I’m going to verge on terribly cheesy right now but that’s okay and this is important.

I honestly believe that every single person is beautiful. Having said that, they’re not all beautiful to me, but they are to someone. What you have to keep in mind is that I’ve completely altered my appearance to suit myself - via hair, makeup, piercings, clothes and (a few) tattoos. And that look isn’t for everyone, a lot of people think I look ridiculous (believe me, I’ve bee told). But it works for me.

And here’s my point; there are people out there who will look at you and think, “hot damn, that is the most perfect goddamn creature I have ever seen”. You fit someones taste completely. But what’s most important is that you suit yours. If you don’t like how you look, change it. God knows I wouldn’t be happy with my ‘natural’ look. 

My point is your beautiful. Please never doubt that.

Anonymous said: Can you make a video about the worst relationship you've ever had?

Originally I had planned to make a video talking about that because I thought the story was interesting, but recently I’m not sure. Although obviously I’d omit names, I’d still only be telling the story from my perspective and that makes it biased. I don’t want to paint anyone as the “bad guy”, an I also don’t want to be the chick who bitches about her exes online. Seeing as it was a situation between me and him (and his mum, in this case), I feel I’d be divulging his business, and that’s not nice. I’m not sure. I’ll have to think about it. 

Anonymous said: YouTube video soon???????????????

Y’know, I’m not even gonna try and set a date anymore. I will get to it, I swear - I have by no means stopped making videos, I’m just super lazy.

Commission piece for rafzombie - who asked for this literally months ago and has been so patient with me, so please everyone go send him tonnes of nice messages.
The brief was a punk zombie with a blonde mohawk in a demin vest, incorporating the Misfits logo. I hope you like it - I had so much fun drawing it, thank yo for the idea.

Anonymous said: May I ask whether you're straight?

You absolutely may. I believe that sexuality is a fluid concept. At this point in my life, yes, I do consider myself to be straight as I have only ever been attracted to men - but I think love is more important than gender, and I’d like to think that if I met a girl who made me happy I could commit to her too. 

Anonymous said: Hey! May I ask what process you used to dye your hair with the Manic Panic Electric Lizard dye? You seem to have had one of the most positive reviews for the duration of a Manic Panic dye, and I was wondering if you have any tips for dyeing?

   You surely may! Y’know it’s funny, I’ve seen a lot of off reviews for Manic Panic! but they are without a doubt my go-to and favourite hair dye brand. I use them whenever I dye my hair and I’ve never had a problem with them. But then again, different peoples hair types will take different products differently so maybe MP! just works for mine?

   My process is pretty basic; I stripped my hair the same night - it was maroon before so it came out pretty coppery so I used Live XL Atomic Blonde to lighten and even out the colour which made my hair platinum. I tried using Bleach London Sea Punk originally but that barely stuff to my hair anywhere, at which point I put Atomic Lizard on top. 

   Something I’ve found with hair dye like Manic Panic! is that even if the tub says leave on for 30 minutes it never hurts to leave it for more. Sometimes if I’m not doing anything else I’ll just leave it on for hours while I go about my business. Always wash it off with cold water - the colder the better, it helps the colour stick. 

   And in general just keep your hair healthy. I’ve heard a lot of people say that they get to a stage where they’ve dyed thier hair so much that it just won’t take dye anymore, but thankfully that’s never happened to me. Use buttloads of conditioner and try and stagger when you change it as much as you can to give it a break.

   That’s about it - I’m gonna do a YouTube video on my full healthy-dyed-hair process - but I’ve had my Atomic Lizard green since February now and I’ve only had to touch it up once and it’s still lime as heck.

A close-up of a research sketch for an Alice in Wonderland project in the works! It’ll be a combination of photograph and traditional art. My model (apostatte) is absolutely stunning. 

Ohmygosh Amy, this is beautiful! Ah, so happy. (P.S. I found your Tumblr)

Anonymous said: How old are you? At least 18 I'm guessing because you have a tattoo?

I am eighteen, yeah. My birthday’s in December so if we want to be crazy I could say eighteen and a half.

Anonymous said: why is your twitter profile crossed off?

Oh, that’s because I do have a Twitter account but I’ve never used it. So you can find it, but it’s not really there. (No sense was made here today).

Anonymous said: Not really a question, you're just awesome (I love blue hair, tats, piercing etc) Is it annoying that I said it anonymously?

Of course not, it’s very sweet that you even wanted to say anything at all! Thank you very much (*^—^) 

Anonymous said: how would you define your fringe/bangs style? because i've been wanting the same thing, but my hairdressers keep fucking it up :(

Aw man I can totally relate - I stopped going to the hairdressers for four or five years but for some reason I went again last year and, I’m not proud of this, but I cried when I got home. I guess you would call it a grown-out, messy side fringe? I just sort of trim it every now and again when it gets to much.

Anonymous said: Okay! So, one of my goals now will be travelling to Scotland and going to eat something together. It should be really fun ! The problem is, if I travel, i will go, luckily, three or four years from now :c ..I'll start saving money :c.. A question, what do you do in your daily life? Besides your videos of course. Do yo study o:?

Have you ever had haggis? If you’ve not been to Scotland then maybe not… but you should! It looks gross but it’s really, really good (but then again I am Scottish so if I don’t say that I’ll be beheaded). Also I don’t know how much of the world get Irn Bru but that’s a classic Scottish soft drink I also swear by. I’ll make a date in my calander for three years from now (*^—^*)

Hahaha, I do wish that making videos was part of my daily life, ah… I started off this (school) year in an animation course, but I left that and have decided not to return to education, probably ever. At the moment I’m working a lot - I do part time, mostly whenever someones sick) but I’ve been in a lot over the past few weeks. I try and draw whenever I have the time.

Anonymous said: You're so cool, wish we could be friends

Heck yes we totally should be! I message all non-anons back privately 
(☞゚ヮ゚)☞ ☜(゚ヮ゚☜). (Although I consider it my duty to tell you I am in fact not cool at all).

Anonymous said: God, I love you accent, I think I'll travel to Scotland some day just to hear people's accent and hopefully, seeing you walking on the street. I loved your hair :c, and a I had a good time watching one of your videos, you're funny. Kisses

If you ever do come to Scotland you should hit me up; I could take you to all my favourite places! (Most of them being places food is served). I seem to get so many messages on people liking my accent which is so kind. I don’t even know what my accent is. It’s like American-tinged Scottish. KIsses for you (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ
