AGDQ forces top speedrunner to change explicit name

Awesome Games Done Quick required Fallout speedrunner and streamer “tomatoanus” to change his name in order to participate in their latest event.

AGDQ is one of Games Done Quick’s flagship events, along with Summer Games Done Quick – which are held to raise money for several different charities each year.

Tomatoanus explained on Twitter that his submissions were still accepted, but he had to alter his name in order to compete on stream at the annual speedrunning event.

In order to compete at AGDQ 2020, tomatoanus changed his name to “tomatoangus” after he found his submissions weren’t publically viewable, but said he understood why GDQ required the change.

“This is obviously because they’re a professional organization representing a charity, which I understand and accept,” tomato wrote in a doc on Twitter. “I wanted to share my experience with GDQ and show their communication isn’t strictly bad.”

Tomato may have changed his name for the event, but the speedrunner said he didn’t intend to change it on Twitch or anywhere outside of GDQ.

“They still wouldn’t be able to display my submissions if I was linking my Twitch to my account since I’m still ‘tomatoanus’ on there. This is because they typically display the runner’s Twitch channel name on stream as well,” he explained. “I accepted this and understand their position, so for the next event I unlinked my Twitch from my GDQ account and submitted under ‘tomatoangus.’”

The streamer went on to clarify that he didn’t think his name prevented his submissions from being accepted, just from being made public.

“Some people think that me changing the username I submitted with was the limiting factor in a run of mine getting accepted,” Tomato wrote. “Which I don’t believe to be true.”

“There have been a couple other runners in the past who have been accepted with suspect usernames,” he continued. “And they’ve been asked to run with a different name at the event.”

Social media mogul and reality tv star Kylie Jenner is known as much for her lipstick line as she is for her over-the-top Halloween costumes, and one of her 2020 looks absolutely “killed” the competition — in part due to the talents of James Charles.

As soon as Halloween rolls around — even during the current health crisis — fans look toward to the crazy costumes that celebrities will pull off, which is almost always a visual treat due to their top-tier budgets and friendships with special effects artists.

Kylie Jenner is one such celeb, who has turned heads across the net for her rendition of a Barbie doll and Ariel from the Little Mermaid — not to mention the time she dressed up as a woodland fairy.

However, her latest costume has taken a more “wild” turn, as inspired by her brand-new Cheetah-themed makeup collection.

Kylie Jenner has completely floored fans throughout the years with her creative Halloween costumes, one of which was a classic fairy.

Partnering up with YouTuber-slash-makeup artist James Charles, Kylie decided to go full-on big cat, with Charles lending his own talents to deliver some stunning special effects.

Using tissue and liquid latex, James created three fake slash marks on her left cheek, as though Kylie had been scratched by the very Cheetah from her makeup collection.

After applying the rest of her makeup — also using the Cheetah collection — Charles completed the look by using black and red eyeshadows, as well as fake blood, to create a surprisingly realistic facial injury.

It’s clear that no cat scratch is going to get Kylie down, though, as evidenced by how amazingly fierce the entire ensemble came together, which the two showed off in a no-nonsense Instagram photo.

As for Kylie’s actual Halloween costume on the official holiday, she isn’t giving out any hints, preferring to keep it a surprise on the actual day (even though James tried his best to get her to spill the beans).
