Yooooo! hatcadet scotchtrooper heyitspizzaking flyingstewardess! So we are thinking of doing studio ghibli characters for dragoncon. You guys interested? I know we’ve thought about it before but I’m serious this time….

What? Too old? Bah! I’m turning 32 in July and flyingstewardess and I are still doing whatever we want. My face is thin, the bags under my eyes are getting worse, I’ve been afraid of getting older since I was 22 and I have really bad self esteem issues but cosplay is something no one is gonna take away from me. I will try to make myself look the best with what I got and and cry a little about how I look but go out and have fun as long as I don’t have con plague. So I’m making flyingstewardess do baron even if she doesn’t like furries because haru isn’t complete withou baron!

I also have that thing where I only want to do costumes of characters I like and identify with, and, well, it’s weird, but, I just have too much respect for Ashitaka to do that costume.  I mean, Ashitaka is near the epitome of a heroic character, not because he goes on the classical heroic journey, or that he is a “good guy,” but rather because he what he does in spite of everything. Ashitaka did something he shouldn’t have, killed a Boar Spirit, and he understands it was wrong, but he accepts the consequences of his actions when he plainly states, “I was prepared the moment I let my arrow fly” when told he has been cursed for his “Crime.” From his point of view, he had no other choice. The boar was moments from entering the village, and its simplest touch could curse or kill any of the inhabitants, and knowing their might be repercussions, Ashitaka acted anyway.

However, Ashitaka stoically accepts his fate, and is put in perfect juxtaposition with the two sides of the central conflict. We see the nature spirits and the humans destroying themselves and each other with their hate, and now their hate has reached into this man’s life and ruined it. Of anyone in the film, Ashitaka has the most right to be angry, to rage against those around him, and yet, of everyone in the film, he is the most level headed. He sees that other’s hate lead to the curse that is slowly killing him, a curse that accelerates when he is angry.

As such, Ashitaka takes great pains to give everyone a chance. He sees everything with eyes wide open, and in my favorite line from the film, and one that sums up the character and hits strongly at the theme of the movie, when questioned by Lady Eboshi as to what he is doing in Irontown, Ashitaka states that he is there, “To see with eyes unclouded by hate.”

In short, Ashitaka is everything I aspire to be.  But it’s not who I am.

Not by a long shot.  I’m much more like No-Face than Ashitaka.

And I’ve always been more comfortable behind a mask anyway.

I fell yah there ie why I’m doing falco instead of all the other smash bros characters because sometimes it’s more comfortable with no one being able to see your flaws. At least that’s what masks make me feel like, anyways it’s 2 am and this conversation is getting to deep for my sleep deprived self especially when I just messed up some sleeves using the good stuff.

Fix it! Do it! Accidentally unscrew it! It’s time to fix things with Soos!

I can’t get enough of the terrible after effects

It took me a good while to realize I was not watching youtube poop, and that’s just perfect.

God this really is made for a very specific generation isn’t it…. the fucking Daft Punk reference, the shitty 90s airbrush artwork with pyramids and mystical bullshit, the compression green screen artifacts… it was worth waiting for it to come out in english and not russian

Soos is so perfect

god bless gravity falls

so perfect

I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life

My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.

I need to remember this for uniforms.

Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!

Some claim that Evolution is just a theory, as if it were merely an opinion.

Here it is, as I promised!

So, my first tutorial I actually put some time into doing.
I would be ever so happy if people would tell me what they like/don’t like about it so I know in the future how to adjust it. If there is anything you wish to know about it, just ask.
I know the Pictures look kinda… bad, but I did what I could with what I had and I, atleast, loved the outcome. I have a new pair of “frillies” and I love them and I tried my best to do this tutorial as simple to follow as possible.

When making this, I used a fabric with cotton/linen mix.
Thats why it gets so wrinkly so fast, but its still a good fabric for undergarment since it breath and is very soft. This tutorial is a basic, so you can decorate your bloomers as much as you wish and in any way you wish.

When following this tutorial, I used the pattern for mens torusers to make the bloomers a bit more casual. I also made the waistline lower, since I don’t really like when things are to tight around my waist. I guess I’m sensetive.
Haha.

Good luck with your sewing and don’t forget to comment and “follow”. :D

HOLY CRAP I WAS ACTUALLY WANTING TO MAKE SOME BUT HAD NO CLUE HOW THANK YOU

Ever wonder how Michele Carragher (embroidery designer for game of thrones) got the Dragon scale look on Daenery’s  Dragon scale dresses. here is a how to create your own dragon scale garment.

~A

This dress is probably my single favorite garment from the show… so I’ll just be filing this away for later!

Source link 

Michele Carragher’s work is beautiful and definitely worth checking out.

A lot of the non embroidered, textural elements of the costumes are done with techniques that can be found in The Art of Manipulating Fabric, which is such an important sourcebook for anyone interested in sewing and textiles.

Reblogging for sources and more information (I have that book, but I’ve been too busy to put it into practice!)
