Katherine Barrell  v.  Sharon Belle

Both have played powerful, ginger, confident lesbian characters.               (Nicole Haught, Wynonna Earp / Danny Lawrence, Carmilla, respectively)

They look ridiculously similar irl and on screen

Both live in Toronto, Canada and have made circles with some of the same people!

Their names. Say them aloud…. ahh feel the similarity in the phonetics?

Oh yeah, did I mention the height difference?

Similarity uncanny, yet these are two generally badass individual ladies, brought to us by the strong force of queer representation in entertainment/tv

Seriously. What. The. Fuck, Canada.

I’ve been so busy today that I just got online for the first time, so I don’t know if anybody else has posted about this, but an anon message to my sideblog just let me know the news =)

WHO IS KATHERINE? HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN A NUTSHELL?

Oh well that’s quite a big question! I guess in a nutshell I would say I am a type A workaholic who is also an artist. I am a student of life, business, literature, and humanity. I wear too much black, drink too much coffee, and eat too many carbs. My drink is scotch neat. My guilty pleasures are soft pretzels, Mexican food, and cookie dough ice cream.
I am happiest when I am laughing and having fun with people I love or when I am creating characters and being immersed in a new world. I’m not sure I know how to exactly answer this because I’m still learning it myself. But that’s sort of the exciting thing about life isn’t it?

You are always learning and growing and changing and becoming something new.

Sophie Blanchard (1778-1819) was the first female balloonist in the world. She made more than 60 ascents in hot air balloons, and was given the title of “Aeronaut of Official Festivals” by Napoleon Bonaparte.

She made her first ascent in 1804, and even though she was not the first woman to ride in a hot air balloon, she was the first to pilot one on her own, and to make a career out of it. She continued to perform remarkable stunts – such as crossing the Alps in a balloon – until her death in an accident in 1819.
