Shiro's Depression Rant lolWARNING: Shiro is very sad and emotionally wonked so don't take her too seriously with the harsh feelings lol.
She will probably get this either resolved or get over it later but she needs to talk this out for now.
Thanks for dealing with her Stardom Community lol
I appreciate what they did for us. I wouldn't have dreamed for this to happen and am ecstatic about all of this.
They even did what I asked for which was to do the movie Frosty and have the player do some VA work.
They did that part wonderfully and I love it.
But what my issue is the character Shiro, who is literally supposed to be me.
They really hurt me here and I'm not sure they even thought about my feelings before releasing this goal.
Note that we DID send our EXACT starlets to the developers.
Here are the comparisons:SamuraiPizzaCat vs. Sami Pizzicatti
All features are exactly as they are besides the eye makeup, but Samurai does use that shade.
All jewelry is the same except for the nice little ring they colored a nice dark hot pink.
They even made that dress a tank top, which really suits Samurai.
Not sure about the shoes but that's pretty minor.
She looks perfect.Shiro vs. Shiro Liu
Looks similar but not the same unlike Samurai.
The skin tone is a shade lighter, eye shape is wrong, eye color is wrong, no earrings,
no bag, wrong nail polish, no leggings, and no ruby slippers.
To get my features (especially physical
) wrong really hurts, especially when
I sent a picture of me with exactly my look.
The black ring was a nice touch but that doesn't make up for half the things that characterize Shiro.
When I look closer, it looks like they really tried to make me look asian. That's not right.
This isn't me.
If both of us had tweaks, I wouldn't mind it one bit. But they made Samurai flawless and me, well, let's just assume they did mine last minute while dozing off. It offends me that they wouldn't work nearly as much as they did for Samurai. Really.
This isn't Shiro, this is someone who just looks like her. That hurts.
I know it sounds really childish and that I should at least be happy they did this (and trust me I am
), but I'm just really disappointed in the work they did for my character. The fact that they did more work for Samurai than me just really offends me. I hope it's understandable but if not, well the point is I'm just really sad.
I wish I was treated equally in this case. The biggest part about this update was actually featuring us
. But for me, it sounds more like the update is featuring Samurai and a person who looks like me. I'm very offended and hurt by it, especially after all the time I've put into this community.
But like I said don't take the harsh feelings too seriously. I usually get over things pretty fast, but in this case it'll probably take me a bit to calm down. Emotions and all, they suck sometimes. glu really hurt me here. Badly. It's almost as if they thought my starlet was hideous so they altered her.
As silly as it sounds, I love this game to death. And for the developers to do this is just heart wrenching. I love this game and community, and for the devs to almost think so low of me to think that it's okay to give one a better treatment than the other just kills me. I hope that their reasoning is enough for me to be convinced their decisions were rational enough to disregard my feelings.
But alas, this is a personal issue and I don't want the community to feel for me too much (as I don't really expect it anyways). I hope you all enjoy filming the animated film Frosty with some unique VA and motion work!
Thanks for taking the time to read.
I wish you a truly wonderful, starry, happy stardom.Shiro
