This is based on stuff that I’ve read so if I’m wrong or have facts mixed up, feel free to bestow the truth upon me. I do have to admit that my post on Trump got me interested in actually reading about both candidates and figuring out why the US seems to be on the verge of appointing a man who has been a reality TV star for almost a decade. Something educational (kinda) has come out of me mocking…

Chelsea 'nổ' 2 bom tấn cuối chợ hè

Mùa đông năm 2011, Chelsea bất ngờ sở hữu cầu thủ trẻ David Luiz từ Benfica với giá khoảng 25 triệu euro. Và sau đó gần 4 năm, họ đã bán cầu thủ này cho PSG với mức giá kỷ lục cho một hậu vệ - 50 triệu bảng.

Luiz gia nhập Chelsea năm 2011

Tưởng như mối duyên tình giữa The Blues và Luiz đã hết thì bất ngờ Chelsea khởi động lại thương vụ hỏi mua ngôi sao Brazil ở ngày cuối của kỳ chuyển nhượng hè 2016 và nhanh chóng được PSG chấp nhận.

Theo đó, CLB Chelsea đã chính thức thông báo đạt được thỏa thuận chuyển nhượng với nhà ĐKVĐ nước Pháp trong việc đưa David Luiz trở lại London. Thương vụ sẽ hoàn tất sau khi ngôi sao 29 tuổi người Brazil thống nhất các điều khoản cá nhân và vượt qua cuộc kiểm tra y tế với The Blues. Theo các nguồn tin khác, 2 bên có thể thống nhất mức phí này ở con số 34 triệu bảng.

Daivd Luiz đã cùng Chelsea giành được chức vô địch Champions League lần đầu tiên vào năm 2012. Chính vì vậy, cầu thủ này vẫn còn tình cảm với The Blues và việc anh trở lại London cũng là vì lý do này cho dù đội bóng của Antonio Conte không được tham dự Champions League sau một mùa giải bết bát.

beccs Debuts Recovery-Themed 'Therapy' Music Video

NYLON has exclusively premiered the first music video, “Therapy,” from award-winning soul singer and composer beccs’ upcoming EP Unfound Beauty. Directed by Julia Barrett-Mitchell, the video depicts “destructive beccs” meeting “healer beccs” in a candid visualization of battling one’s inner demons.

“Therapy” is the second single from beccs’ debut EP, Unfound Beauty, which will be released on September 21st, and celebrated with a record release show at the Mercury Lounge on New York on Sunday, September 25th.

Watch the music video below!


beccs is a Brooklyn-based musician from Boston. She grew up playing classical cello but at the age of 16 she migrated to songwriting at the piano. With an evolving alternative, soul style, beccs’ sound is in the realm of Fiona Apple meets Amy Winehouse meets Laura Nyro. Her music delves into the dark and intimate with a voice that is just as vulnerable as it is dramatic. Normalizing deeply personal pains and desires, beccs’ songwriting lures her listeners into a dynamic shared experience of self-exploration and celebration. Her voice has graced venues in Madrid, Boston and throughout New York City, including New York Times Critics’ Pick The Mysteries at The Flea Theater. beccs is set to release her debut EP Unfound Beauty September 2016, recorded by acclaimed producer Richard Barone and Grammy nominated audio engineer Steve Addabbo. The title track of beccs’ debut EP Unfound Beauty (co-written with Spanish bassist Hernan Olalla) was heard at Cannes Film Festival May 2015, featured in the short film Yellow Heart (dir. Sophia Harvey). The song will also be featured in All Of Me, a documentary film on eating disorders, by award-winning filmmaker Bess O’ Brien. beccs’ debut single, Scared of Me, won 1st runner-up in the national Campus Movie Fest Elfenworks Social Justice Songwriting Competition: the song credits those women who are oft-dismissed as hot messes but are actually inherent soldiers.

Unfound Beauty will be released on September 21st.

Shape of 'molecular graphene' determines electronic properties

Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) form an important class of molecules, which can be regarded as small graphene species and which play a prominent role in the development of organic electronics. Scientists now show that the edge structures of these apparently similar molecules are responsible for spectacular differences in transport properties, allowing for smarter design of new…

Made with WordPress

I cannot remember the last time I was this excited to make a costume. It might have been back when I made one of Eowyn because she is my role model, but I am having a blast with this and I’ve not even gotten any of the materials. To me, that is what really maters. Having a cool costume to wear for Halloween and Movie Releases is just an added bonus.

Doctor Discoveries

I’ve been doing some reading of Doctor Strange (and decided that the old Doctor Strange comics aren’t exactly good), and some research (read: googling), and discovered some pretty cool things. First thing is, while I can find no reference to a female Doctor Strange (because there have been female versions of a lot of them, in fact, in Ultimate Spiderman theres a universe where all of them are girls), but I did find the below image of Doc’s girlfriend (well, one of them) taking on the mantel of Sorcerer Supreme.

External image

Its nice that they were able to create a female character that isn’t 98% cleavage and bare legs.

And then there’s this woman (Doc’s daughter from a different dimension or something, idk, you can read about her here), who is also pretty darn cool.

External image

Basically what I’m saying is: whomever is making the female versions of the Sorcerer Supreme can keep on keeping on because neither of them are overly sexualized.

I also stumbled across some concept art from the All New All Different Doctor Strange (that’s the one I love best) which shows some awesome new detailing on the costume (particularly the cloak) (and that’s where I got my featured image from, by the way). He also appears to wear sneakers, which makes my idea to wear my tennis shoe styled heels that much better.

External image

Eye of Agamotto

Clearly I have to have some version of the eye, particularly since it might be one of the infinity stones (at least, in the MCU), but I haven’t decided if I’m going for the movie version or the comic version yet. Honestly the movie one looks better (and I love that its based on the window in the Sanctum Sanctorum), but I think the one from the comics might end up easier to make……

Belt

There are two different looks I could go for for Doctor Strange’s belt, one being plain gold (straight out of the comics) and the other being leather and brown canvas (from the movie) and I’m probably borrowing from the movie one for this because I have some really cool faux leather fabrics laying around and it would be a shame not to use them.

Hair

I’m not sure how much of my planning for the wig I mentioned in the last post, but I don’t think I talked about it at all. I am going to add in the silver highlights that Doctor Strange has (is there a reason that happened? I haven’t been able to find it in all my reading) and accent them as much as possible (I’ll probably braid them or something, to make them look super cool),  and then theres the debate of how to style it. Part of me wants to leave it all the way down – because, why the heck not? – but I’m not sure that’s really a great idea (after all, it has to look fight ready). So I’ve come up with two possibilities:

  • Half-Up, Half-Down
    • This would have me pulling back just the top portion of hair.
  • Braid
    • This would just be braiding the entire wig down my back
    • If I did that I would probably borrow from the style of Zelda’s braid in Hyrule Warriors (here’s a great example of what it looks like) and tie something to the end.
      • Probably based on the bat looking thing from the front of his comic costume (which you can see really well on this shirt)

No matter how I style it, I’ve decided I’m going to grab some of those cheap, witchy beads and charms that you always see out around Halloween and weave/braid/tie them in, just to add a bit of fun. Mostly how I do it is going to end up depending on how the wig looks once I get it, because some wigs are easier to style than others.

Possible Wigs

Pattern Decided

In my last post on the subject, I was still debating over what pattern I was going to use to create the bulk of Doctor Strange’s costume (the tunic-y thing he wears under his cloak), and I didn’t even consider using Sentinel (M2080), because I hadn’t seen it somehow, but once I did I knew that it was absolutely perfect for what I was going for and that I had to use it.

External image

 I’m not going to be using the hood, because I don’t really like it, and I have a different idea for the arm wraps – either the ones by Creative Rash or Captain Morgan Teague’s – but despite that change, this pattern is much closer to what I envisioned than anything else I’ve looked at!!

External image

The undershirt I will be doing in some variant of blue, and I might be removing the fancy clasps in favor of something easier (like snaps or velco, seriously guys I’m that lazy (or I might just make it a pull over)) because I don’t think I want the claps from this, the lacing from the vest, and the belt all piled on top of one another. That just will not look good, me thinks.

External image

The over part I will not be doing much altering to, because I like how it looks already. The holes for the lacing will be interesting, because I’ve never done anything like that before, but enough people do it regularly that it can’t be too hard, right?

Colors & Textures

In order to mimic Doc’s costume from the comics (which is a dark blue tunic with a light blue bat/creature on the front), I’m going to make the under shirt a slightly lighter shade than the vest, although, I won’t be using the baby blue from the comics. The darkest part will be the body of the vest (which is the entire over thing except the front stripe which is shown in super light blue below).

The bottom layer I’m going to make out of something soft and drape-y (read: something comfortable that I won’t mind having against my skin), and the outer layer I’ll make out of something stiffer.

Cost & Such

Its an online pattern only, meaning I couldn’t go and pick it up like I wanted to, but with cost, shipping, tax and everything it added up to $19.95 which isn’t terribly bad. And because it will take a while to arrive in the mail that lets me spread out the expenses of buying the fabric (because I won’t do that until I have the pattern physically in my hands) and purchasing the pattern.

I’ll probably wear it with black cotton leggings (which I have) and boots (which I have), maybe even the heeled boots I bought for Wanda Maximoff, so that lowers some of my costs. All that’s left is the cloak, and I have a cloak pattern I will most likely be using, although Simplicity just released a pattern for a cloak that’s clearly meant to be Doctor Strange (8238 for those of you who are curious), I don’t see the point of buying it when I have a perfectly alterable pattern already. I’ll also need a wig (and I’m not planning on a super nice one), and that should be the end of it.
