I really went and did it… I made Clean Diva merch - my first sticker pack! (and not to absolutely toot my own horn, but these are the WAVIEST stickers I’ve ever seen…)
Each and every sticker was designed by me - I’ve finally found a use for my ability to operate Photoshop CS6 like its no-ones business, so each sticker has a ~ story ~ which I’ll elaborate on further on. Despite each sticker being its own little entity, the whole pack was designed to have a nostalgic early 2000s feel and is very reminiscent of my childhood, (and seeing as though 2000s babies really DID all have the same childhood, I’m sure many of you will relate to some of the references made in the designs as well).
The stickers themselves are made from super high quality outdoor standard glossy sticker sheets, so they won’t scratch and they certainly won’t rip at all, meaning you can safely stick them all over your skateboard, laptop, phone, lunchbox, your own body (idk there really are no limits), and the item will stay groovy for as long as you keep it on there! Actually on second thought please do not stick these on your body - that’s probably the worst idea I’ve had in a while.
Each sticker pack sells for 30DHS and includes 14 of these super swaggy stickers (1 of each, and then 2 of each of the cursor stickers). You can buy them on my instagram (@emmajanerobertson) over DM. If I don’t see you every day in school, I can post them to you for 5 AED extra (35AED total and the transaction will be made over Paypal, not cash), and if you live abroad I’ll post them to you for 10AED extra postage cost (40AED total). They ARE in limited quantities, but I can get more made according to demand lol.
Here is a runthrough of each of the stickers!
GET THE FR*CK BACK! - THE MOSH STARTER
I thought I’d start with my personal favourite sticker of the pack - the ‘get the frick back’ banner sticker! This sticker, more than all of them, is very me. I pride myself in my ability to start a mosh pit at a concert, and now you can too haha! The slightly pixelated wavy font is very evocative of Microsoft Word 2007’s WordArt function, and the rainbow colours and daisy graphic gets the message across in a threateningly cute and groovy way.
LET ME CALL MY MANAGER
The cutest little Sanyo pink flip phone to complain to your manager on. Definitely pre my childhood, but I’m sure this would have replaced my baby pink Nintendo DS if I was a teenager in this era. The screen says ‘Clean Diva’ in a matrix-y digital font.
TRAGIQUE! - FURBIES IN LOVE
Ok, looking back, furbies are kind of TERRIFYING. Nevertheless, I had 2 of my own when I was younger and cared for them as if they were my own children. These two lovebird furbies are canoodling in front of a heart-shaped peace sign (which I used to draw on EVERYTHING I could), on a tie-dye background which would have matched by favourite DIY shirt I made when I was 10 at a tie-dye birthday party. It’s not Clean Dive if it’s not sliiiightly tragic, so the sparkly graffiti writing says ‘tragique’ because we’ve graduated from just being ‘tragic’ in english - we’re now tragic in French too.
ERROR 404 - CLEAN DIVA NOT FOUND
Windows 2007 telling you that I’m nowhere to be found. Perhaps proceeding without my copious levels of Scorpio Energy is more of a blessing than it is a curse…
ALIEN PARIS HILTON
Not to absolutely bring it up AGAIN, but I met my very own y2k fashion icon Paris Hilton recently in Dubai for the second time, after happening to have stayed at the same hotel as her at the same time while on holiday in Mauritius a few years ago. She truly is OTHERWORLDLY in the eyes of fashion, so here she is as a sexy green alien in her iconic 21st birthday chainmail outfit.
CLEAN DIVA BARCODE
Inspired by the awfully 2D website logos of the late 90s and early 2000s, here is my own! Pool background because days spent in my polka-dotted bikini top and hawaiian print board shorts were my summer 2009 JAM. Barcode because this truly was an era of funky gadgets.
RAINBOW GLITTER CURSORS
Each sticker pack comes with 2 of each type of glittery cursor. These are specifically rainbow and glittery because pre-clean diva I had a tumblr blog which I customised by messing with the html to add this copypasta coded rainbow glittery cursor. I think I got the code off of reddit, and I’m pretty sure it gave me a virus too… totally worth it though.
I can’t stop saying yolo swag unironically, so now you can have it in puffy rainbow cloud font on your laptop. Words to live by, if I’m honest. Revolving around a disco ball for extra-groovy year 6 prom vibes.
Furbies make another grand return, but this time, it’s going through an emo/scene phase. This little guy probably listens to Slipknot and My Chemical Romance and definitely has tried to cut its own bangs, but the scissors unfortunately got caught in its checkered studded bracelet, so he walks around with a dramatically jagged black swoop over its eyes.
The hardest I’ve ever cried was when my tamagotchi pet died due to neglect on my side. I’m not kidding, I vividly remember crying so hard that I threw up on the carpet in my living room - poor girl, even poorer mom. In this sticker, I’m the tamagotchi and I promise I won’t betray you like my old tamagotchi pets did xoxo
TROLL DOLLZ LOVE
God, I forgot how HIDEOUS these dolls were. I had a pink one, but i remember being ever so jealous of my friend Lucy who had the rainbow one. Give this sticker to your BFF, significant other, your mom, your dad, whoever makes you happier than a lil troll with static-y hair as the perfect token of love and friendship 4 eva.
