All it takes is one event to set a precedent. If Darren Wilson is arrested for, charged with, and convicted of the murder of Michael Brown, then that means ALL cops can be held accountable for their actions. It means the people can ALWAYS rise up and fight back against police brutality. 

That’s what the cops and National Guard in Ferguson is fighting against. They don’t want this standard to be set.

haus-of-grotesque’s 1,000 follower giveaway!

Thank you all for following me and supporting my work! To thank you properly I thought I’d do a little giveway so here we go!

The prize:

The winner will receive one of my new skirts (pictured above) and it will be fully custom!

You can choose between pencil or skater style, whichever velvet appliqué design you want OR a custom appliqué design (must be a silhouette and simple enough for it to be translated into appliqué), you don’t even need to have appliqué if you’d prefer it plain! You can have pockets or no pockets, whichever colour you want (depending on the fabric colours available, of course.) It can also be custom sized if you require it so ANY size can enter (seriously, you could be a size 0 or a size 40, I will make it for you!) The only thing I will not change is the length, unless it’s only by 10cm or so.

Rules:

  • Reblog to enter! Likes do not count and you can only reblog twice a day so you aren’t spamming your followers
  • You must be following my brand, corvuscoronefashion-photography (I will check!)
  • You don’t have to be following my personal account (haus-of-grotesque) but I will double your entries if you are!
  • Deleting or altering the text in any way will get you disqualified.
  • You must be willing to give me your address if you win!
  • You must claim your prize within 48 hours of the winner being announced or it will go to the runner up!

The giveaway will end 30th September 2014 at 12pm and the winner will be chosen using a random generator to make it fair!

I will post worldwide so everyone can enter!

And of course, this skirt and lots of other pretty things are available to buy in our Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/CorvusCorone93

I really need to win this ok?


I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

An officer threatens to kill a journalist and those around him since he’s not credential press. He then threatens everyone around the guy with live rounds. If you don’t know what those are, they’re real bullets.

Another journalist tried to ask his name but all he said was “Go fuck yourself”.

The tag trending for this guy on twitter, funny enough, is #officergofuckyourself.

Please spread, Ferguson is not safe. Don’t forget about it.
