so i've been thinking a lot today.
ten days ago, when i first entered this competition, when i drew the first line of pink lipstick across my face, i would never have thought that this competition would mean so much to me.
then, it was just all "oh i bet i could pull off a Ryan Ross". it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. i was actually planning to raid my mom's closet for a particularly flowery blouse to put on and just tuck my hair behind the collar and snap a simple photograph imitating this one:
but then after much contemplation, i decided that people wouldn't vote for me if i did post it up because it would just look like a random girl who just put on some random flowery blouse and took a random picture from the side. it would not be 'mimicking' an artist.
then i thought to myself: when did Ryan Ross actually stand out
and was Ryan Ross
i was talking to Bao about it at the time, i think, and then she said something along the lines of "nono not this picture, the other one! the one with the makeup"
and then it hit me.
Ryan Ross' unique face makeup designs!
which Panic fan ever forgot about Ryan Ross' makeup? SINCE WHEN was Panic(!) at the Disco ever mentioned in an interview back then without the slightest reference to the amazing face-art done by the equally amazing George Ryan Ross the second?
so i ran into my room, grabbed my eyeliner pencil, my never-really-used tube of lipstick that i got free from a magazine and my old circular portable mirror, set it in front of the computer and got to work.
five minutes later, i was done.
i took some random pictures, laughed over them, edited them, picked a random one (ok fine. i was paranoid over which one to post :( ) and posted it. and then the campaigning started and everything, and competition started to trickle in, and yes, i was stressed out, and yes, i was furious with the kind of entries people submitted, but i was not as furious as i am now
first things first.
this is a competition
. sure, it may be a popularity competition, and the people who organized the competition aren't going to pick who did the best job in mimicking an artist that was nominated for the awards, but for the love of GOD, YOU'RE ACTUALLY SUPPOSED TO MIMIC SOMEONE, GODDAMNIT, NOT STAND/SIT THERE AND POSE LIKE YOU'RE A FUCKING SUPERSTAR IN YOUR OWN RIGHT AND CLAIM YOU'RE 'MIMICKING' SOMEONE.
Title: Happy us......

YA ALLAH, WOMAN.
first of all, ARE YOU RETARDED? DO YOU NOT KNOW HOW TO FILL IN A FUCKING FORM PROPERLY?
SINCE WHEN IS THERE AN ARTIST CALLED 'SuJu rox!!!!!"? half the entries submitted are like this by the way. i am really, really, really
saddened by the language skills and internet-literacy of half of the Malaysians who use the computer (because the other half, namely all you other Malaysians whom i regard as friends and family and people who can actually type properly, are awesome).
and secondly, WHO THE HELL CARES OR GIVES A FLYING FUCK ABOUT WHICH ONE YOU ARE? you aren't even trying
to look like Suju, or whoever his name is from Super Junior (yes, retard, that's actually the name of the band Suju is in, if you didn't actually know) at all.
THIS is SuJu.
aihgaifhgiadhga if i rant any more, i'm going to end up having a coronary.
THIS IS REAL COMPETITION. (he's supposed to be Christina Aguilera. i don't see the difference, but dammit, the guy has balls.)
THIS IS REAL COMPETITION. (and some awesome Photoshop skills, might i add)
THIS IS REAL COMPETITION. (don't you think the picture is entirely kick ass?)
THIS, HOWEVER, IS NOT.

THE LAST TIME I CHECKED, THERE WASN'T ANY ARTIST NAMED 'MATHEW'. AND I'M SORRY, BUT I THINK YOU FAIL AT SPELLING.
SO PLEASE. VOTE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY COMPETED. WHO ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING TO COMPETE. WHO ACTUALLY PUT IN SOME EFFORT IN DOING SOMETHING TO GAIN VOTES. THE PEOPLE WHO REALLY, TRULY WANT THIS.
VOTE FOR ME.
