“We dressed up as the book Madeline, with six people dressed up as her and me as Ms. Clavel, their teacher. One of the Madelines, however, was the truly special one…the one with the beard, that is. Our experience was hysterical—I’d walk all the girls (and one guy) down the street in two straight lines. Guys would be walking the other way, whistling or hollering at all the pretty ladies. Then, as they got to the back of the line, they’d see my friend Brennan, then they’d see me, and I could tell that they were suddenly wondering if ALL the Madelines were men.”
the last sentence
There will never be a time when I don’t reblog this because it is my fave.
ARE WE NOT GOING TO DISCUSS HOW SHE FOLDED HER HIJABS TO LOOK LIKE THE HAIR OF THE CHARACTER, THAT IS SUCH A LOVELY AND GREAT IDEA. OHMYGOD
This is so cool
The sun isn’t bright just because I say it is. It just is. It was bright before I even knew the word for bright. I didn’t decide what it is, I acknowledged what it is.
You aren’t worth something just because I say you are. You just are. You were worth something before I even said anything. I didn’t decide that you are, I acknowledged that you are.
This is what I mean when I say “You are worth it.”
This is great.
I have no words.
… medic eyebrows… I find them irresistible…
Largely too hypnotized by this to make intelligent comment, but I could say something about the female gaze and about what comics and other media would look like if the male characters were actually designed to appeal to people who like men, as opposed to being power fantasies to appeal to (presumably straight, cis men), but then I could also just point to this gif (and to the designs and character work on Knockout, who has a ‘very’ appropriate name, and Starscream in Transformers Prime in general). Especially since it’s doing some really nice neck-baring action there. Plus those are some really well-defined eyes. A++.
I find the frames from the Primeverse to be incredibly attractive, and they seem to be so to humans too.They’re sleek and elegant, perfectly designed for their purpose, and they move with such grace (well, mostly, at any rate.) I’m not really very conversant with the differences between male and female - there were no ‘femmes’ in my universe - so I can’t really comment on how differently male and female humans would view them, but from what I’ve learned of mecha and femmes from other verses, Primeverse Knock Out and Starscream, in particular, seem to fall right in the middle of that spectrum, neither mech nor femme but a perfect balance of both.
And of course, I have a particular fondness for Knock Out. He is beautiful, and those eyes are irresistible.
I’ve put all of the fabric painting tutorials into one big photo post.
Includes silk painting with resist (Elven Banner), free-hand painting on stretch fabrics (Jareth from Labyrinth), fake embroidery with puffy paint (Peter of Narnia), graphite transfer paper with fabric paint pens (Tali from Mass Effect) and regular Tulip fabric paint (TARDIS lab coat).
Maybe this format is better?
