Gloving is a challenging thing, way more challenging than a lot of people make it out to be; it does require a lot of practice to get even simple things down. I’ve been gloving for about 17 months now and I still wish my rolls looked better/had more variation. Your gloving is always going to be a work in progress and yeah you’ll get better but you’ll never be truly happy with it because you’ll always strive to be better. Also as with any person who is involved closely on something they are passionate about you have a set of blinders, you will never see your own show as others see it, so something you think looks shitty might actually look really good, you just can’t see it that way. I would say if you really love gloving, keep doing it, stop caring about whether you’re good or bad and just have fun. You got dis :)

Thank you thank you thank you!!! I want to post a video for feedback but I feel like the only feedback id really get is “you suck” and “keep practicing till you don’t suck anymore” 😭 that will be a year maybe

Nah, the only people that I observe to really say that kind of stuff is people who do not glove. Glovers are pretty connected through the fact that we all love pretty lights and music, and know how much time and effort goes into what we do so they would be way less likely to put you down than some random Internet troll. I have gotten so much hate through the entire time this blog has been run (even recently) and I just don’t even care. But if you ever want some healthy feedback feel free to shoot me a video, I’ll tell you straight up what I think without being harsh and cruel haha if not no biggy, just keep practicing if you love it, always makes me sad when someone loses their interest.
