You guys! PLEASE keep this in mind when going on about your days. I was lucky enough to make it this far before being copied, but I've been receiving messages constantly of screenshots of other shops using my design. My unicorn Moccs came from my OWN visions, were sketched onto paper and cut out with my OWN hands, and are made with the love in my heart that only comes from from watching a vision I CREATED come to life.
It is one thing to be inspired, I was. When I started a year and a half ago I saw a pair of Moccs made from a very talented shop. But my thought was "one day I want to make a unicorn Mocc" it wasn't "I'm going to make HER unicorn moccs". I am not one to cause conflict but wanted to leave a friendly reminder how truly horrible it is to watch your designs that you are proud of, be sold as someone else's idea. Please - when you're shooting your rep photos, planning outfits or coming up with ideas for your business - BE INSPIRED - do not copy.
I am and always have been about wanting everyone to succeed. Especially other Mocc shops. I love supporting anyone who is creative and brave enough to put their hard work out there! But the only way we can ALL succeed is by being original, understanding that maybe your shop doesn't have unicorn Moccs but maybe has an original mermaid design. There is money to be made for everyone, without having to steal customers but using someone's designs.
And to the many who've literally used my exact design, I KNOW you're better than this! Create something of your own!
Thank you all who appreciate my work. I love you all so much!
