Nerds pledge over $4,000 for sexy Peach photo shoot
So a cosplayer by the name of Liz Katz launched an Indiegogo campaign back at the end of April for a sexy Princess Peach costume and photoshoot. Her goal was $650. Well the fundraiser ended recently and she pulled in a grand total of $4,690... Holy shit!
Two people even donated $500 for a 15 minute Skype call. Now I know what you guys are thinking and I'm way ahead of you... I'll be launching my a sexy Yoshi crowdfunding campaign! Look for details soon. I'm thinking the tongue would be around the crotch area.
You can blame the so-called "soap opera" culture for that. S.M.H.
It's a damn scam because she asked for a sum amount of money to make a series of videos with her so called "research". She ended up raking in a lot more than she expected, in the end all we got were the same quality of videos she has put out before her scamstarter went up. Meaning that she put in little to no effort into making these. Not only that but releasing a new video every two months and every section being two parts for some reason, and she still gets ad revenue form that as well. Even though I find all this bullshit, I still gotta give it to her for being such a good scam artist.
Crazy idea here, but maybe it's because of how she intended to use the money. She is a model but she doesn't work for any company. What she got from this campaign didn't just go to the costume, it went to equipment she could use repeatedly for years to improve the quality of her work. It's possible people saw this and genuinely wanted to help as well as get the exclusive shots from her cosplaying. Or maybe perverts just have specific fetishes that they're willing to pay out the nose to service and I'm just psychotic for thinking there might be something decent about human beings.
Um... why not, I guess...?
Yoshi doesn't seem all that picky with where he sticks that thing after all!
I don't get it...Why pay money to get a woman to take pictures fully clothed when there's an address bar up there to get us nudity for free?
Who pays money for simulated titillation these days? At hundreds of dollars you should just rent a harlot.
Dumbasses. All of them.
What exactly is wrong with Anita Sarkesian's videos that generate strong criticism like this? Her videos were talking about negative gender tropes in video games with numerous amounts of research and honest footage examples, not like this post which was just a fan service photo shoot. Most of what Anita does is relevant game analysis. What exactly about her videos was a scam? She did end up making them, didn't she?
I don't understand why some people are so hostile toward this woman. She hasn't done anything horrible, and if people want to spend their money on stupid things, then that's their decision. I don't think it qualifies her as a 'whore' as some people have called her. This isn't something new, she just happens to be in business for herself instead of for some modeling agency. The whole thing is very stupid, I just don't think insulting Liz Katz is really necessary.
Alot of people are blowing this a bit out of proportion! She quite clearly explains what the money is giong towards and from the looks of it some of that money is going into the funding incentives. Also Liz Katz isn't just some bimbo who does it for the money and attention. She's been playing games all her life, she's an avid tabletop gamer aswell. It helps to do some research! Don't be so quick to judge just because she's attractive!
If people have the money to spend then its completely down to them how they spend it! I can never comprehend how people pay hundreds of pounds every year for a new ipad!
Kickstarter gets abused all the time! It doesn't mean that every single scam gets funded! People aren't that stupid (well most of them)! Zach Braff's Kickstarter wasn't a scam in the slightest! He quite clearly points out & explains why he is doing the kickstarter and why he think its a good idea! Plus the kickstarter goal was only a quarter of the films total budget. The founders of Kickstarter actually said thanks to Zach Braff's campgaign, more projects had been funded then ever before! As alot of people don't know what kickstarter is & he introduced it to them! At the end of the day people can do what they like with their money! I find it ludicrous that people shell out £600 for an ipad!
Whatever floats their boat, I guess. Still, a sexy Princess Peach photoshoot? I'd be okay with a Terra from FF6 fashion model any day
I find it tragically ironic so often the people who are setting back women in gaming are women.
I shouldn't be eating a Nutri-grain bar while reading these.
If I was a girl... I'd be so frikin rich right now...
As a christian male, I can completely agree with you. I'll give you 2 words to explain why this did so well "Sex Sells" just look at the porn industry.
As a female...and as a gamer...and as a female gamer...I weep. I weep sooooo hard right now >_<;;
Are people seriously giving money to this? Aren't we in a thing called a recession? Aren't there sites like 4chan and DeviantArt for this sort of thing that you can...I don't know...look at for free? I just don't get it *shakes head* Then again, it's just another mystery of the human condition, I suppose.
This was Indiegogo not Kickstarter. then again, they are both pretty much the same thing. Either way, we all knew most of these were nothing but scams when it started with Anita Sarkesian and her retarded Tropes video games crap. This is no surprise really, just pretty fucking sad and pathetic. I just blame these desperate idiots so much because now a lot of attention whores are going to start doing this shit now. I think some camwhore known as Alinity will start doing this crap.
So who's going to be that guy? Who's going to say that this is somehow something that is okay? Who's going to tell me that Kickstarter isn't being abuse? Because, every time someone tries to say that I will point to that one campaign from... What's his face from Scrubs, this and well everything like it. So please someone be that guy. I would love laughing in their face.
God dang it the image. Why did you have to go there and ruin yoshi.
pretty sure there some is already on there
