Hey everyone! I just wanted to get some other peoples thoughts/opinions on this subject, as I am super new to the hobby and I definitely do not want to offend anyone or be shunned for any reason. I was just wondering if people generally look down on you for associating with people who have had a bad rep in this community. Say if you bought clothes or a wig from someone who has a sordid history here, or got a faceup from someone who was banned, or bought products at all from someone who has gotten a bad reputation here, for whatever the reason. I'm definitely not saying I intend to befriend people who have done sketchy things in this community in the past, but I am just wondering how people feel about it when they see a faceup or clothes or a wig from someone who has had bad history here. I guess my REAL issue here is that I really love the work of a particular faceup artist, but I know this person has a very sordid past in this community. I obviously would prefer to give my money to someone who is a part of this community here, but I am just not sure who would do a similar style. I have looked at a lot of artists, but I just haven't found one that is comparable. I'm sure some obvious names stick out in some peoples minds, so I am super sorry if anyone is offended by this at all, and please tell me if I am out of line here by bringing up banned people, even though I haven't mentioned names at all. I just wanted to see what other people tend to think on this matter.
