“Having a large instagram following does come with some interesting experiences, but this has been by far the most odd one yet.”
But with instafame comes strange experiences as well. Lauren shares her bizarre discovery after a stranger copied her images on instagram. What’s creepy is that the couple impersonators copied every inch of detail – from location, outfits, accessories all the way down to the poses and occasional captions.
Laura mentioned her concern because when someone imitates your images, it is a form of flattery. But when someone does it by traveling across the world and mimic almost 100% of your picture details, that’s… a little bit too much.
“When a girl travels across the world recreating your exact imagery over and over again you begin to worry..”
“The amount of time and pre-organising she put into arranging the outfits, I don’t promote and tag everything I wear, so that would have taken a lot of time and work, even down to the anklets and necklace. Not to mention the cost of all this- those outfits and accommodations don’t come at a cheap price.”
Netizens speculated that the girl must be loaded with money and free time to be pulling this off.
Laura further expresses her frustration that their hard work of creating these images are blatantly stolen. Upon messaging the girl herself, she tried to explain that there’s nothing wrong with it.
“This was just next level & when I messaged her about discovering her page and how crazy and ridiculous I thought it was she tried to justify it by just saying everyone copies us and even big accounts are taking same pictures at the same place & told me I should make my pictures private if I don’t want this to happen.
“I think she missed the point that no one has copied down to this extreme before and it’s completely different, copying down to the hand positioning, what’s in your hand- everything. She also said why do you care I only have 1000 followers I should be going after the accounts with 500K following, but that’s not at all the point, it’s not about how many followers anyone has- you are copying and stealing someone’s art to a ridiculously creepy level.”
Laura shares that this experience has taught her more about the cyber world – that regardless of any positive or negative you receive, you’ll have to take it with a pinch of salt.
She perfectly ends her post with a quote,
