APH-OC

We’re slowly approaching the Festival of Lights! Hanukkah is on the 25 Kislev - so this year, it begins on nightfall of December 6, and as usual, lasts for eight days, until nightfall of December 14!

Did you know that there’s this many spellings of Hanukkah? Because it’s a Hebrew word, there’s no correct way of translating it into English, or other languages. The top eight ways of spelling it are:

  • Hanukka
  • Hanukkah
  • Hanuka
  • Hanukah
  • Chanuka
  • Chanukah
  • Hannuka
  • Hannukah

But instead of bickering over which one is the correct one (don’t worry, all of them are!), enjoy the holiday!

(Very quick update on the different spellings of Hanukkah :0 I showed it to my fiancé a few days ago, and most people don’t know there’s this many ways of transliterating it, haha, so I thought “why not?” :’) Anyway! There’ll definitely be a decent post on Hanukkah in the future!

(( Happy Colón Day, Panama !

And today, Nov 5th, is Colón day, when Panama persuaded Colombian troops in Colón to not fight against Panama’s independence movement. 

I wasn’t sure what to draw at first, but then I realized I can just draw Maria in Colón’s regional pollera - La Pollera Congo ! Colón is known for its Caribbean influence. I based it off this picture since I love it so much and the girl reminds me of Maria <3 ))

Some tentative designs for my OC’s, I still need more research! :)

but here they are! 

Peru is wearing the traditional dress from Cuzco, while Colombia is wearing a regional folkloric outfit from the Andean Zone if I remember correctly :)

Unff, I love those clothes but they’re a pain in the butt to draw ;n;, too much details! but so beautiful!

(( I HAVE SO MUCH REGRET OF THIS LMFAOO but I couldn’t resist. 
Mexico adores to send dumb snapchats to America, specially when she’s with any of his states, this case California, that After Mexican beaches and cities is the favorite place where mexicans go on vacations.

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Canada knows whats going on

California belongs to my friend kiki! ))
