[my caps] the thick of it

Y’know what, we really need to appreciate tentacle monsters outside of the sexual and horror aspects. Tentacles, with or without suckers, thin or thick, most of the time they’re squishy, flexible, really good for wrapping around stuff , yeah?

Do you realize how fucking great that would be for cuddles? YOU COULD EASILY GET WARM SQUISHY FULL BODY CUDDLES. YOU COULD GIVE WARM SQUISHY FULL BODY CUDDLES IF YOU HAVE TENTACLES. YOU COULD EVEN POSITION YOUR BODY TO BE THE BIG SPOON AND THE LITTLE SPOON AT THE SAME TIME. OR JUST BE ENVELOPED IN A GIANT CUDDLE PILE OF TENTACLES. THAT WOULD BE SO COZY??? 

So I remembered that my name is FANFICdiddlydoo so here are some good fanfics to read

Returning to my roots. Most of these are one’s I’ve read so far (there are TONS more to read so if you know more plz let me know!). Need to look into more. I’m interested in ALL characters so if you know a good one, link me!

What design elements I focus on when drawing my sonas
  • Vivi/Ronya: Round shapes, fluffy hair, thick hourglass shape, always looks a lil nervous, soft expressions! Make her look motherly and soft like mashed potatoes. Hide the sin.
  • Ennelyn: SCAR OVER NOSE, MAYBE MORE ALL OVER BODY??? BUFF AF, ANIME HAIR, CURVY AS NO OTHER, FULL OF EMOTION 120% OF THE TIME. TINY AND DEADLY, MAKE HER 1,46 METERS SEEM LIKE 0,5. COULD SHE KILL A MAN? YOU BET SHE COULD. KILLER BODY IN ITS PUREST SENSE.

What does Scorpio as your rising sign mean?

rising sign is your personality profile the way others see you and physical characteristics. imo scorpio, gemini, cap, aries, virgo are the hottest rising just something alluring about them from gem having soft features and dreamy eyes and cap having high cheek bones and thick brows.
my oldest brother and dad are both scorpio rising! you guys have sharp tempers, like to be alone, honest, careful communicators, sometimes paranoid. 😗

I have heard from a few cosplayers that wigs are very uncomfortable and sometimes painful for people with big thick hair. Do any of your cosplay friends have big thick hair that could either confirm or deny this???

It all depends on the wig you’re wearing, I mostly get my wigs from Arda and they have rather large wig cap sizes so it never hurts my head personally, if anything it isn’t the wig itself hurting your head but the wig cap you wear over your hair. I have a friend who has a TON of hair but she never has an issue really. What you can do to help manage your hair to make it more compact and overall make the wig fit nicer on your head is to braid your hair and then bobby pin them to your head (Sort of wrapping them). If you have more time I highly suggest pin curling. 

A Letter to My Skin

My skin is my largest organ, and my biggest insecurity. It’s the outfit I was born in; three solid layers of protection; my suit of armour, shielding me from the outside world. It holds in every thought and every feeling, each bone and muscle and tendon, every neurone, nerve ending and vein. It’s the house I grew up in.

Over the years, my skin has been devastated by insect bites and cat scratches, sunburn and blood tests, needles, heat rash and stinging nettles. And every single time, I watch as it grows back stronger than before; a never-ending cycle of damage and re-growth.

This healing process is like the cycle of the seasons. It’s golden corn fields in the summertime and the thick, shady canopy of the willow tree in your garden. In the winter, it’s the frost on the hollybush in the church yard and the snow-capped evergreens on the mountain tops, stretching limitless, as far as the eye can see. It’s damp, blackened tree trunks after a bonfire in the depths of autumn, but it’s also wildflowers swaying in the springtime breeze. It’s woodsmoke at dusk, and rose petals at dawn, and dappled sunlight on the garden path.

When I was a teenager, hormones raged through me like a forest fire, wreaking havoc on my cheeks, my nose and my forehead; vast, angry volcanoes rearing upwards and outwards in every direction. And now, as a twenty-three year old, all I’ve been left with is the aftermath. Deep, ice-pick scars line my face like ancient wallpaper. Every bump and groove and dip is there to be seen in plain sight, and every inch has been meticulously examined, poked at and prodded. I can’t tell you how long I’ve spent hating my own reflection. After all, who the hell wants a reminder of their teenage years imprinted onto their face forever?

I used to say I had craters on my cheeks to rival that of the moon’s, but then I realized how truly beautiful the moon is. She hangs high up in the sky during the day, barely a whisper, but when night falls, she lights up our darkness, her surface pockmarked and dented, but all the more breathtaking because of it.

Perhaps my skin is beautiful. Perhaps I should learn to love the dimples in my thighs and the laughter lines around my eyes. Maybe the freckles on my nose and the creases in my forehead are something to be celebrated. My veins, so stark against the near-transparent skin on my wrists, snake and wind their away around my bones like the rivers in venice. And maybe, just maybe, they are there to remind me of something greater than myself. 

So maybe my craters aren’t all bad. Maybe they’re a sign of strength. Maybe the way my skin heals itself, time and time again, is nothing short of magical.

My skin is my largest organ, and I don’t mind that, anymore.

2 things: 1. Why does the chl hate us? 2. Nico's fashion sense reminds me of Mony's in that its edgy/sporty with an emphasis on headwear Thay's all, thank u for your time

1. Actually my O teams are doing pretty well, it’s the Q that hates me :(

2. YOU’RE RIGHT ACTUALLY. His aesthetic is casual sporty (usually fashionable jacket, thick hoodie, and nice jeans) + beanie. The beanie is important. He wears the beanie with a suit too. Or that red Mooseheads cap

Irish Slammer Cupcake Minis

I think I’ve finally perfected the recipe… which is good because St. Patrick’s Day is my favorite holiday!

[EDIT: Name change due to the insensitivity of the original title “car bomb” - “slammer” is the most common substitution I’ve found. Call ‘em a slammer and enjoy your cupcakes (and beverage) guilt free]

Cake

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 full cup Guinness Beer
  • 1 half shot Jameson whiskey
  • 1-1 and ½ cup flour (add until desired batter thickness)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil

Mix and bake at 350 for ~14 mins. Hollow out (I use piping cap to make the holes then a knife to hollow them out). 

Whiskey Ganache

  • 2/3 can condensed milk
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2-3 shots Jameson whiskey

Melt the chips and milk on the stove at a med high heat just until smooth. Cool for ~5-10 mins in a different bowl then start folding in the whiskey. Don’t let it get too runny. Pipe into the cake hollows when fully cool. 

Bailey’s Frosting

  • 1 tub frosting
  • 1-2 shots Bailey’s
  • 1 stick butter (soft, not melted)
  • 2-3 cups confectionery sugar (add until stiff)

Mix together until a stiff frosting is achieved. 

Whiskey Detail Frosting

  • ½ stick butter (soft, not melted)
  • 1-3 cups confectionery sugar
  • Green food dye
  • 1-3 shots whiskey

Start with the butter then add sugar and whiskey alternating until you have a stiff enough frosting and enough to make your clovers. Add green food dye until satisfied with the color. Pipe into 3 leaf clover shapes!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! For more cupcake recipes, check my tag!

Time for another less-than-fun post to warn you guys about some of the negative side effects that can come from cosplaying (sorry for my 7:30 am zombie pictures).

If you ever feel discomfort or pain along your scalp from your wig cap, wig, or any cosplay accessory, remove it from your head immediately or else you could end up like me with tension alopecia. I normally have super thick hair but I now have a wonderful 2″ x 1/4″ bald patch in my bangs.

What is tension alopecia? Basically it is when your hair follicles undergo severe trauma causing your hair to fall out in patches. Luckily tension alopecia isn’t as bad as regular alopecia and there’s a good chance your hair will grow back… but there’s also the chance that it could become permanent, especially if your scalp is not given time to heal. I currently cannot wear any wigs, wip caps or tight-fitting headbands and have to up my omega3 intake for the next month in hopes that my hair will start growing back.

You might think “this won’t happen to me, I only wear my wigs for a couple hours at a time” but it could still happen to you! My damage was caused during Katsucon when I was cosplaying Yue from Cardcaptors and only wore that wig for about 2 ½ hours. It was the right combination of a tight black net wig cap and a 5lb wig that did just enough trauma to the follicle in that short period of time that over the next 2 weeks I lost a 2″ portion of my bangs. Tension alopecia isn’t just caused by hair clips or prolonged wear.

If you notice your scalp really hurting while wearing or after removing a wig, I wouldn’t suggest wearing any headbands or other wigs for a couple days because that tends to be the first indicator of damage. I made the wrong choice of wearing a short wig again afterwards and just taking some Tylenol and toughing it out. Annnd now I have the sexy bald patch.

 My only suggestions are to avoid heavy wigs if at all possible, front wig clips are also apparently notorious for follicle damage, use the lightweight looser beige (pantyhose style) wip caps as opposed to the tight black net wig caps and to make sure your wig caps and wigs aren’t sitting in the same place on your scalp for extended periods of time.

I guess I’ll keep you guys updated on any progress I have in getting my hair to grow back….? Just in case anyone else has to go through this. hahaha -___-

…if my best friend was was lying on the ground after being shot, and if someone else tried to reach them before I did, I’d push them away.

I wouldn’t care if it was a doctor or just a civilian trying to help. I’d push anyone and everyone away, because the person who was shot was the person who was there for me through thick and thin, who was there when I had no one else, who told me that I mattered, that I’m not a waste of space, then I wouldn’t want anyone near me as I hold them close checking for a heart beat.

I wouldn’t want anyone near me as I hold what I believe is their cold dead body.

I wouldn’t want anyone near me because at this moment, my world was ripped from me.

So, no I don’t blame Tony for blasting away Sam. And I don’t blame Sam for trying to help.

Sam knew what it felt to lose a friend like that, because he went through it before.

He tried to help Tony, but when you try to help someone who doesn’t want help, you’re denied, you’re pushed away.
