help R. out?

disneyladiesfromlastnight:

hi, everyone!

my group for a Research Methods class is conducting a study, and we need participants! if you guys could take 5-10 minutes to answer this survey, it’d be a huge help!

keep in mind that it’s 100% anonymous and you MUST read the consent form thoroughly beforehand (which really just means that you gotta be above 18).

THANK YOU ♥

the target number has now been reached in record time.

you guys are the greatest, thank you so much :D

I don't know if you two are aware of this, but your Disney Princess/Abbey Road photo is being printed and sold on phone cases on Etsy. The shop name is CaseMode and the item is called "Disney Princess iPhone 5s case."

We were not aware of this and we are very upset, saddened, and angered by this. Measures will most certainly be taken to address the issue. Thank you for letting us know.

EDIT:

hey everyone, R here. I figured it’s best for me to talk about this issue too, since I’m the one who makes these graphics.

when B told me about this situation, I was honestly crushed. and then I felt like Hades in that one rage-quit scene he has in “Hercules.” and then I felt like Tiana in the beginning of “The Princess and the Frog,” where she just flops into bed. I felt angry, upset, and defeated.

but most of all, I feel disappointed. I know that sounds like something you’d hear from your parents, but it’s so true. I literally spend hours on each thank you graphic. I love making them and I put in a lot of time and effort into them. B and I look forward to planning them and we eagerly anticipate your feedback/responses. for someone to so callously take something I put effort into making as a thank youand then have the audacity to steal it and make a profit off of it…. it really breaks my heart. 

I told B that I was seriously reconsidering making any more thank you graphics, because I didn’t want things like this to keep happening. I’m still not sure what I’m going to do on that front. I might have to stick a huge and ugly watermark on all future graphics. I might not make any more. I don’t really know. still, thank you to the majority of our lovely followers for your outpouring of support. you all are the reason why I made these in the first place.

to the others, I ask that you think about what it is that you’re doing. try and see it from my side, please.

♥, R.

I've never messaged you guys before but I absolutely love what you do. You always bring a smile to my face when I need it and I think that makes you beautiful people. i'm so sorry that someone had the audacity and rudeness to steal (because it is STEALING) your art. I hope you're able to get it taken care of. You obviously don't have to keep us updated on it but I know I would enjoy if you did, just to know that the person was caught and realized that it is NOT okay

Thank you for your lovely message; it really made my morning. This blog is one small way for us to bring a little levity into the lives of our followers, and that really means something to me. I can’t be there for you personally, but I can at least do this. I am so very happy that we can help make you smile. :)

Thank you also to everyone who messaged in with other Etsy shops taking the image and with advice for how to take care of it. R and I will be meeting to discuss how best to handle all of this, and we’ll go from there.

The Disney logo is just Walt Disney's signature. No one designed it.

Yeah, I get that it’s based off of Mr. Disney’s signature. And that’s very cool! Ties it back to the original inspiration and all that.

But also, Disney is a huge multinational corporation with a very large, very successful marketing department(s) in charge of their branding and image. So there’s also that.

I have no qualms with the Disney logo. For me it certainly holds a nostalgia value, reminding me of my frustrations trying to replicate it, for instance.

When i was really young I always thought the D in Disney was a whole new letter and got really angry when people said Disney because I couldn't say it and didn't realise it was a D and it was like the most annoyingist thing in my childhood

This seems to be a common theme for many people. You’d think Disney would have designed their company name with their younger, less literate consumers in mind.

Dear DLFLN: My burlesque troupe is doing a Disney/Fairy Tale themed show in about a month and our troupe leader deliberately linked this page to our group page for inspiration! Just wanted to let you know that you're influencing art all over the place ;) #SOinlovewitheverythingyoudo.

Oh wow! That’s amazing! It’s always gratifying to hear that a) people appreciate your work and b) your work is inspiring others. In this case, our “work” is a little less artistic in the classic sense of the word, but hey, it does things for us and for you, so it’s all good in the neighborhood.

Thanks for telling us know about your show! #BreakALeg
