[Kamisama] Tomoe/Nanami Surprise

Props to me?

I don't often do personal posts, but this seemed worthy.

Anyone else keep up with color trends? I've been waiting for months to see what Pantone's new Color of the Year was going to be, and I have to say I was a little taken aback when I saw what it was.

Deja vu, anyone? Those of you who participate at calendarsquares might remember April's Color Challenge of the Month....

Freaky, no? Now I have to wonder, am I just incredebly good at spotting color trends? Or is a Pantone employee among us here on LJ? Should I feel on cloud nine for creating the color combination that has become a Pantone Color of the Year, or just a little bit upset for being "ripped off"? (as if it's possible to rip off colors in the first place, but what would you think if you were in my position?)

I think I mostly feel excited. It's not as if I invented the colors or the combo. I just happened to use them for a challenge. And obviously I was able to find icons for the inspiration post, so it's not like it was an original idea either. Still, it's fun to think there's a Pantone person watching me from above, LOL.

All that to say, I think I'm going to feel very attached to this year's color trend even though I don't particularly like to wear pink XD
