On a whim, Wander decided to throw together some palettes for the star of one of his favourite platformers, Shantae!

The outfits are based on characters from Shantae’s world: Her friends Sky and Bolo, pirate nemesis Risky Boots, zombified frenemy Rottytops, and evil clone Nega-Shantae.

Just some ideas for her inevitable inclusion in Smash 14, to be released in the year 20XX.

I’m not normally one to make these posts, but I feel like this one is valid.

These anchor bases were removed from a rejecting “nape” piercing that was only a month old. The local piercer who used these bargain-bin anchors claims to only use industry standard jewelry, charges such prices, and then apparently pierces people with jewelry that costs $0.99 if they can’t see it.

The first one literally is cracked on the little foot. This is completely unacceptable.

Research your piercer, ask to see your jewelry, and make sure someone isn’t scamming you out of your hard earned money. This wasn’t the clients fault at all even, some people are just jerks.
