RE: Illamasqua Contest update
I am writing in reference to this earlier post regarding my thoughts on the Illamasqua contest I entered recently. Apparently it has caused a mini-uproar and I was called "spoilt and superior", and that even if my entry was picked, I do not deserve to win because of my attitude.
First off, my post was not meant to be a direct insult to the judges of the contest, and I deeply appreciate that they took the time to drop by to point out the reasons behind their choice. After reading their comments, I have to agree with them and I apologize if my post has made them feel cornered or cast them in a bad light.
Second, I have never ran a poll or tally on which of my entries was the best, nor do I think that my entries are in any way more outstanding or deserving to win than the other contestants'. However, they ARE my own creations, and I myself am most proud of entry #1, so I guess that's why my initial reaction is so strong and snobby-sounding. In the same thread, I cannot control what others think regarding this topic, and the comments posted only reflect on the poster's opinion and no-one else; I do not delete comments unless they are spam or outright personal insults with no basis or reason (eg. "lol u r ugly").
Finally, I just want to say that everyone did an excellent job for the contest, it had been loads of fun, and I am very sorry that my post has been such a killjoy for some of you guys. I guess I did take things a bit too seriously. Everyone just C H I L L A X, ok?
