and 2 different shoes with this one

The three things that happen when a show unexpectedly discovers it has a popular gay ship

1. They ignore it while panicked efforts are made to heterosexualize the couple in question. An acceptable straight white love interest is rapidly shoe-horned into the narrative.

2. They decide to do something nice for their queer fans by introducing an entirely different gay romance that those fans had no previous interest in. This couple will quickly be sidelined.

3. They actually get the gay couple who are shipped by the fandom together. Then they kill one of them.

The one thing that never happens when a show unexpectedly discovers it has a popular gay ship

1. They realize they can take advantage of the scorching chemistry between the pair, slow-burn the romance and end the show by sending them off happily into the sunset.

How long does it take for a submitted prompt to bless the blog?

If I were to publish every single submission it would take approx. two years.

Amigos wondering why their prompt hasn’t been published:

- I only publish about 5% of the submissions
- sometimes a prompt is too specific (using fandoms most people don’t know / or the prompt is already a story)
- Prompt is not specific enough (”write about someone that does x & x”)
- Sometimes 3 users submit a prompt about for example life and death at the same time. Most often I only choose 1, even though the other 2 are amazing as well!  
- Some ideas are already on WPS but phrased differently
- But overall I just post the gems (sorry). There are people who submit 10 prompts in a row and one only one is just WOW, I am gonna eat my shoes if I don’t publish this. 
- AND, I don’t want to flood your dashboard. 

I will put up some guidelines and tips on the submission page later today

heijou  asked:

please link those ttutorials lmao. I would love to learn

Some programs and tutorials that I’m going to recommend are paid, but ALL OF THEM can be found on torrent websites like  thepiratesbay (always click on a download link with a magnet and read comments) and rutracker (requires registration). 

Programs:

  • The Sims 4 Studio (free);
  • Blender 2.78 (free);
  • Marvelous Designer (paid) - check system requirements, older versions are less demanding;
  • Zbrush (paid) - you’ll need it only for one feature;
  • optional Maya (trial and student versions are free) - check system requirements, older versions are less demanding. When it comes to making clothes, everything you might need it for can be done in Blender. For the future, if you’ll ever consider creating hair PLEASE DO IT IN  MAYA OR 3DS MAX IT’D BE MUCH EASIER AND LEARNING THEM WOULD BE TOTALLY WORTH YOUR TIME;
  • Graphic editor of your choice, preferably Photoshop.

Here is the order you need to follow for everything to work:

tip 1: First thing first, keep everything organized and give distinctive names - it is very important. Create a folder with your project name and subfolders “meshes”, “textures”, “preview”. If you’re using Maya, make sure there are no spaces, symbols or non-Latin letters in the ENTIRE path. This bitch will give you hell if there are.

tip 2: Create a “base models” folder with exported .blend (nude top, bottom, full body, feet) and .obj files (anything is fine) of all genders and age categories that you plan on making clothes for in the future. Put uv_0 and uv_1 templates there as well.

  1. Import nude .obj mesh in Marvelous Designer (in meters), make clothes, export as .obj (without avatar, thin, no internal lines or textures);
  2. To decrease the poly count without negatively affecting the topology and to have good edge flow I suggest you to do retopology. This is why you need Zbrush;
  3. Blender: open nude/reference .blend mesh, import .obj file, do uv_0, close holes, transfer uv_1 map, transfer weight, vertex-paint, remove doubles, split sharp edges, bake maps, remove covered parts of nude body, combine, set S4Studio  CAS Tools;
  4. The Sims 4 Studio: import lod0, change textures, change everything you need under Categories tab;
  5. Graphic editor: edit textures; 
  6. The Sims 4 Studio: re-import the textures, save the package, put it in the mods folder;
  7. Run the game and PRAY;
  8. Fix everything that is wrong, DON’T FORGET TO DO LODS (make them only after your lod0 is perfect), add swatches, make thumbnails if you want and you’ll be good.

Tutorials:

Tutorial sources:

Problems you may run into and how to fix them:

  • Item shines too bright in game - problem with alpha layer of your specular map;
  • Entire mesh is flying - weight issue, you need to re-transfer weight;
  • Part of the mesh is flying -  weight issue. Go to Edit mode, select a vertex in problematic area, find a group that should not be there under Vertex Weight;
  • When you manually paint weight make sure the modifier Armature is applied and your rig is selected in Object drop down menu;    
  • Baggy mesh does not retain it’s original form and deforms weirdly - you need to fix your uv_1 map;
  • Weird shadow - clean you shadow map;
  • Weird shadow at the bottom, around sleeves or sharp corners - you need to split the edge loop;
  • Dark spots on ambient occlusion map - subdivide surface and re-bake;
  • Previous mesh is visible after uploading new lod-s - you need to start from a different item. One thing to note (it may be an issue with my program/game, but I’ll tell just in case it’s not). When you create your package from a nude bottom, accessories like pantyhose will overlay your item’s texture (I’m pretty sure this can be changed in Warehouse tab, but I’m too scared to even go there). When you start from nude top, every time any CAS part is removed, your item of clothes will be taken off as well. If you’ll run into the same problem start from underwear instead.
  • When vertex-painting, make sure the hex codes of colors are identical (if the same) or have a very smooth transition (if different). Use blur tool. Otherwise there may be a “split in mesh“;
  • When loading lods, nothing shows up - you forgot to set S4Studio CAS Tools;
  • Before merging packages into one, make sure you didn’t overwrite them in the past. There will be 2 or more pairs of them in game.

Endlessly grateful to all people who shared their knowledge on this subject. Thank you <3

Feel free to drop any questions related to creating The Sims 4 custom clothes (only clothes and shoes, I don’t know anything else yet).

Bloody Mikaelson’s - Kol x Reader

Originally posted by lovekolmikaelsonstuff

Pairing: Kol x Reader

Prompt: Kol is jealous about you being affectionate with everyone but him. He decides to tag along when you go shopping to try and get you to like him more. Fluff and confessions ensue!

Warning: Smut (?)

ENJOY!!

****

You sat down next to Niklaus on the sleek leather couch, phone in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other. As you lent against him, his arm automatically wrapped around your shoulders. You and Klaus were best friends, the kinda of friends that spoon at night and talk about relationship problems. You sighed contently as you sipped your coffee. Despite his psychotic tendencies Niklaus was the biggest cuddle whore ever.

“What the hell! Why do you cuddle Nik like that and not me?” You heard a childish voice ask, looking up you see Kol stood there his arms opened wide like he was waiting for an explanation.

“Because little brother if she did, you’d try something extremely unrefined.” You heard Elijah’s sophisticated voice chuckle. You smiled when Elijah bent down and place a loving kiss on your forehead. To Elijah and Rebekah you were like a little sister.

“More so than you already do.” Nik added smirking to himself as he took a sip of your coffee that you hadn’t even realised he’d taken. You shot him a glare taking your coffee back before glancing up at Kol who was just glaring at everyone.

“Elijah gets to kiss you! Nik gets to cuddle you! What do I get!?” He growled angrily.

“A punch in the face if you carry on Kol.” You grunted as you went back to reading a post you had seen on Facebook. You heard a deep smooth chuckle from behind you resulting in you throwing you head back, hanging upside down to see Marcel stood directly in behind of you. Meaning your face was about 5 inches away from Marcel’s crotch. You stared at the fabric covering his jeans trying to see the shape.

“Are you finished staring at my crotch Y/N.” Marcel snorted making you tilt you head slightly.

“I’m trying to see if the myths about black guys is true.” You replied bluntly before sitting up and turning to Marcel kneeling up so you were looking into his eyes.

“It’s not always true but in Marcel’s case it is.” You heard a smug voice add, you looked behind Marcel to see Rebekah stood there with a smirk. She threw you a wink and walked over to sit with you.

“Jesus Bekah you got the full package huh? Voice that’s makes your panties wet, ripped as fuck, looks to die for and a big dick.” She laughed at your dreamy voice making you smirk.

“Y/N I adore you however if you could refrain from talking with my sister about her boyfriend’s genitals I would much appreciate it.” Elijah sighed shaking his head lightly as he continued to read.

“Sorry ‘Lijah, Nik.” You added knowing he was probably uncomfortable too. You scrolled through your Instagram liking a few picture along the way before you felt someone trying to shuffle there way between you and Klaus. You knew it was Kol straight away.

“Kol what are you doing?” You huffed making him stop moving as he settled down next to you. Earning himself a glare from Klaus.

“I’m coming to cuddle! I deserve affection too!” He exclaimed pairing his enthusiasm with a cheeky grin.

“Really Kol? I mean really?” You deadpanned making him shrug.

He wrapped his arm around you resulting in an eye roll on your part. You weren’t the closet with Kol, mainly because you never really spoke, not because you didn’t like each other. He irritated you and teased you but you knew it was all in good fun. You didn’t move away from his arm but you didn’t snuggle into him like you did Niklaus and sometimes Elijah. Elijah liked to cuddle on occasions, mainly when he was stressed. You continued scrolling through your Instagram, seeing a racy lingerie photo posted by one of the photographers you follow. You smiled and opened the comment box.

‘This is beautiful Jason.’ You commented on the photo before look at the picture again. It might be a lingerie photo but the way it was taken was art not sexual.

“Ooo I think you should do a photo like that and give it me for my birthday!” You heard Kol say from right next to you. You unwrapped his arm from you and moved to the opposite couch were Elijah was sat.

“Dammit come on Darling I was only joking!” Kol whined like a child who had just had his favorite toy taken from him. You didn’t respond instead picking up a pillow from the couch and throwing it at him. He caught it with ease and grinned very much resembling the Cheshire cat.

“Kol what did you do this time?” You heard a soft voice ask from behind you. You knew by the voice that it was Freya but you decided to drop Kol in it.

“He asked me for lingerie pictures for his birthday.” You pouted angrily as you looked at Freya with slight puppy dog eyes.

“Kol Mikaelson! That is no way to treat a lady!” Elijah and Freya shouted at the same time, I smiled at how much they were a like sometimes and turned to Kol who looked like he was ashamed in what he had just said.

“Sorry Y/N.” He muttered softly making you feel bad for ratting him out.

“It’s okay Kol. Anyway I’m going out today so I’ll see you guys later!” You hopped off the couch before you were stop by Niklaus.

“Where are you going?” Nik asked looking up from what he was doing.

“I’m going shopping. I realised I haven’t got much and I’ve been borrowing Rebekah’s clothes since I got here.” You smiled at him sweetly before leaning down and giving him a kiss on the cheek.

“Can I come with you?” You heard an unexpected voice ask. You looked over at Kol in surprise but nodded anyway because maybe it would do you some good to bond with Kol. After getting ready you met Kol in the courtyard, double checking you had your credit card and phone. Once you were sure you had them you nodded at Kol who offered you his arm. You smiled sweetly and took his arm gently before you both made your way out onto the bustling streets of New Orleans.

You stopped at the first shop and Kol had yet to let go of your arm which you found extremely endearing. As much as he was cheeky he was still a Mikaelson which meant he had to be at least 5% gentleman. You picked up a few different colored pairs of jeans, a few pairs of plain black leggings, some skirts and shorts before handing them to Kol who let go of your arm to help. You next went to get some plain vest tops, some crop tops and a few different types of blouses. You knew you and Bekah would most likely have a shopping spree soon so you only bought things you needs. Next you grabbed things like socks and tights, you tried to pay for them but Kol refused to let me and gave the woman his card. Kol took them bags from you and held them all in one hand before offering you his arm once again which made you grin threading your arm with his once again.

You laid your head on his bicep as you made your way to the nearest shoe shop. You strolled in with Kol and picked up a few different styles of heels and only 2 pairs of flats. One pair was running shoes and the other were a pair of sandals. You usually wore heels so you didn’t usually buy flats. They were only for when it was too hot and you couldn’t be bothered with the strain heels had on your feet. Once again Kol ignored your pleas to stop her paid for your shoes too. The last stop was a lingerie shop which made you snort slightly, remembering Kol’s teasing earlier. When you got inside you made your way to the simple 2 pieces sets. You looked the racks up and down before turning to Kol who unexpectedly looked quite uncomfortable.

You smiled reassuringly and quickly grabbed a few sets that you liked before making your way to the register, arm still linked with Kol’s. You set the stuff down smiling sweetly at the elderly woman behind the counter. Kol took out his card making me whine.

“Kol I can pay for them you don’t have to.” You sighed guiltily. He let out a chuckle grinning at you softly.

“I want to Darling.” He stated his pet name making you blush slightly.

“How long have you two been Married?” The little old lady asked as she accepted Kol’s card. You blushed further and was about to correct her but Kol nudge you and grinned.

“Not long.” Kol replied sweetly making you look at him with slightly widened eyes. After he retrieved the bags you made your way outside before you nudge him angrily.

“Why did you let her believe we were married?” You asked softly yet the hint of anger still evident in your voice.

“Because it’s not like we’re going to see her much and why spoil an old woman’s day by embarrassing her.” Kol stated with a small chuckle.

“So Mrs. Mikaelson how about we go get some food at the pub and then get all this stuff home?” He teased making you grin at his antics.

“Well if you insist Mr. Mikaelson.” You flirted. You grabbed some of the bags so you could intertwine your arms again which made him smile. After ate and laughed together you finally made it home Kol shouted at the top of his.  

“Y/N and I got married while we were out.” He knew his voice would reach everyone in the house and soon Nik and Rebekah came running out with wide eyes which made you laugh so hard you had to lean into Kol for support.

“You did what!?” Rebekah screeched making me laugh even harder.

“Yeah it was great there was sexy lingerie.” He nodded happily you saw the game he was playing and you decided to play along.

“Heels too die for.” I added nodding my head seriously.

“The dress she bought was absolutely beautiful.” Kol sighed dreamily almost making me crack.

“I contemplated getting my hair done but decided there wasn’t much point.” I shrugged.

“Oh and then we had a meal and a glass of wine!” Koll finished.

“Tell me you’re joking!?” Rebekah screamed her voice reaching the higher pitched stage. You looked at Niklaus who looked at you with wide eyes.

“But…But I had everything planned in my head!” Rebekah yelled making me and Kol look at her confusedly.

“Planned? Planned for what?” You asked cautiously.

“Yours and Kol’s wedding! Duhh!” She huffed angrily.

“What!?” You and Kol screamed in unison!

“We were joking Bekah! An old woman thought we were married and we didn’t correct her.” You replied laughing awkwardly.

“Oh okay that’s good because I planned everything.” Rebekah stated more calmly this type.

“Rebekah, Kol and I aren’t even dating…Why would we get married?” You asked looking up at Kol who just shrugged at you with wide eyes.

“I’m a woman that’s been around for 1000 years and I know that Kol is very clea-”

“Okay!!! That’s enough of that! Why don’t we go put your new stuff away?” Kol screamed interrupting Rebekah, his cheeks slightly flushed.

You shrugged it off and decided to follow Kol with the bags you were holding. Once you got to your room you fell forward onto the bed after dropping the bags. Kol fell onto it next to you, his warm brown eyes staring into your Y/E/C ones. You smiled sweetly at him before he reached over and tuck some of your hair behind your ear. You closed your eyes enjoying the feeling of his rough hand against your soft flesh. His hand lingered for a while before he pulled back making you almost whine at the loss of contact. You had been alive for over 200 years but Kol’s touch wasn’t like anything you’d felt before. It was gentle and loving, it undoubtedly made your heart flutter. You opened your eyes to see him staring at you like he had a question on the tip of his tongue but he couldn’t find the courage to voice it. Which you found ironic since he was usually so sure of himself.

You smiled at him shyly knowing full well you had a blush covering your cheeks. His hand reached back out but this time it gently cupped your cheek. You nuzzled into his hands before looking back into his eyes. You had both somehow rolled onto your sides in a loose fetal position, knees touching slightly. His thumb circled you cheek gently before he spoke up.

“I really want to kiss you right now.” He whispered softly, looking into your eyes as he spoke. You didn’t respond just looked at him waiting for him to reach over. He sat up leaning on his elbow as he lent down and brushed his lips over yours. You reached between your bodies your hand gently gripping his t-shirt. You finally felt you lips meets and it was like you heart was beating so fast it would leap out of your chest, your stomach was going wild with the strength of the butterfly’s you were currently experiencing. After a few minutes of tender kisses he pulled away slowly. You sighed happily as his eyes met yours once again. He laid back down on his side.

“Y/N I think I’m in love with you.” His voice was timid and scared you would reject him but his confession only made you heart leap with happiness. When you didn’t say anything he started getting up which made you panic.

“Kol…” He turned round to look at you, sadness in his eyes.

“W-Will you please make love to me?” You asked timidly a blush bracing your face once again.

“I know I’m not in love with you yet but you make my heart beat louder than it ever should, when you kissed me I felt like everything disappeared so if you give me time I think I could fall in love you…If I haven’t already…” You whispered your eyes meeting his as he stared at you with the biggest grin you’ve ever seen him were but this time it was filled with love and hope.

He rushed over to you as you knelt at the end of the bed. His lips crushed against yours his emotions bursting out through the kiss. His hands cupped both your cheeks, your hands were gripping his t-shirt as he gently laid you down. He hovered over you, his body on top of yours but not uncomfortable. You gripped his biceps as you whimpered into the kiss, your heart was going a mile a minute. He broke the kiss only to trail soft kisses down your neck causing you to shiver. His hands slid to the hem of your shirt tugging it slightly he looked up at you as asking for permission, you nodded biting you lip which made him groaned.

You both sat up so he could pulled you top off tenderly. You tugged his top off and dropped it on the floor before taking your bra off and letting it join the pile of clothes by your bed. He gazed at you appreciatively before laying you back down. His lips were soon kissing slowly down your neck to you breast before taking one of your nipples into his mouth gently swirling his tongue while using his left hand to caress your thighs. You let out a soft moan as he moved to your other nipple showing it the same affection.

His hand finally made its way to the button on your jeans. He undid the button before pulling away for my breast, pulling down your jeans and plum coloured lace that was under your jeans. He let them poll on the floor before kissing your stomach softly, his hands sliding up your thighs. You gasped as his thumb found its way to your clit, his kiss slowly getting closer to your appending arousal. You hummed in appreciation as his thumb made small delicate circles on your clit.

His lips moved to your thigh before kissing up until it reached your sex. His breath brushed over your dripping heat before it finally made contact. It started of slow and seductive but soon turned so dominant and fast. You were a writhing mess of moans and panting as you felt you orgasm approach. His tongue dip inside you a few time before it continues its assault on your clit.

“K-Kol gonna cum..” You panted as you felt your end coming nearer with every move of his tongue.

“Let it go baby…I got you.” He whispered sweetly his finger slowly entering you, curling to reach your most treasure spot. He went back to kitten licks as his fingers did the rest of the work.

“F-Fuck Kol feels so good…” You whined. You were so close to the edge you would practically taste it. And finally you fell.

“M’ cumming Kol…Holy shit!” You moaned loudly you hand clutching the bed sheets as your back arched up, your mouth falling open in a silent scream of pleasure. Koll pulled back and stared at your with a small smile.

“Good you look beautiful when you cum.” He leaned over and kissed your forehead gently. You were still panting at he pulled back undoing his jeans. You reached over as soon as his member was free but he stopped you shaking his head making you frown.

“Not that I don’t want your hand or mouth wrapped round…It’s just I feel need to feel you right now.” That sentence should have sounded dirty but when Kol said it, it sounded like pure love. You nodded and opened your legs further, he slid in between them. You slid your arms round his neck embracing him like he was breakable. He kissed your lips tenderly and he lined himself up with your entrance. You were panting slightly, gripping onto him tightly. He slid himself into you at an agonizingly slow pace but you knew this wasn’t him fucking you. This was him showing you how much you mean to him and that was better than a quick fuck.

“F-Fuck!” He swore his head resting against the point where your shoulder and neck meets. His breathing was heavy and he was gripping the sheets tightly. You knew he was trying to control himself so you cupped his cheeks and brought him up so you were face to face. You stared into his eyes as if tell him ‘thank you’ and ‘you’re doing so well’. He gave you a shaky smile and began slowly thrusting into you. You gripped onto his shoulders as your breathing started getting heavier as well. He changed his angles so he could hit your g-spot which made you arch up and whimper at the amount of love and pleasure you were feeling all at once.

Once you collected yourself slightly. You move you both into a different position so you could be closer. Kol sat on the edge of the bed, his legs hanging off the bed. You were sat in his lap, your chest and forehead pressed against his as you continued to move your hips. You were thrusting forward instead of up and down so your clit was gently rubbing as his pubic bone with every thrust. You threw you head back letting out a moan, Kol’s lips going straight to you throat placing soft wet kisses on the hollow of your throat. You started to feel yourself building steadily, moaned husky moans and panting getting loud with each thrust.

“Y/N I’m c-close..” Kol panted against your throat making you shutter out a breath.

“Me t-too…Cum with me…” You stuttered before letting out another choked sob. Your pace got slightly fast as your orgasm was finally reaching its peak. You pulled back and look into Kol’s eyes, His left hand cupping you cheek and he stared at you with so many unspoken words. His brows were furrowed and his eyes kept trying to shut as he neared his end. One arm wrapped around his neck and the other placed on his chest.

“I’m c-cumming..” You whispered against his lips your panting loud and deep. He nodded letting you know he was too you gasped as you finally came, your walls clenching around Kol triggering his orgasm.

Once you had ridden out your orgasms, Kol picked you up with shaky legs and laid you on the bed carefully. He crawled under the covers with you and pulled you into his chest, kissing you hair lovingly.

“I love you Y/N and I’ll wait forever if it means you’ll love me back.” Kol’s stated his voice was quiet and spent after earlier activities.

“It won’t take as long as you think…” I muttered into his chest before placing a kiss on his chest bone.

BANG!!

“It’s about bloody time!” Rebekah screamed as she slammed to door open.

“For the love of all that is bloody holy! Rebekah get out!” Kol screamed making you jump slightly which made him look down at you.

“I’m sorry baby I didn’t mean to make you jump…” He muttered apologetically.

“It’s okay. Nik! Can you respectfully drag your lovely sister…who I adore…out of my bloody room!” You screamed only making Kol chuckle but also making sure everything was covered before Nik came in. Nik soon came in and pushed Rebekah out the room but turn to look at us.

“I’m happy for you both. Hurt her Kol and I’ll dagger you.” Niklaus threatened before leaving the room and closing the door on his way out.

Bloody Mikaelson’s.

Poshmark for Cosplayers (a sort-of guide)

I’ve been using Poshmark to buy pieces for some of my cosplays for a while , and since it’s really come through for me, I thought I’d put it on your guys’ radar.

The basics: Poshmark.com is one of the many online secondhand clothing sites out there, but they’ve been around for ages. People use it to clean our their closets, find out-of-stock pieces, and make swaps. It’s like eBay, but just for clothes and shoes, with simpler search perimeters that you can set and save to your custom size. Best of all (for me): you can make offers. There’s no guarantee the seller will take your offer, but I always try to knock off a buck or two if I can.

What it’s good for: Finding screen-accurate pieces that have long since sold out. I was trying to find a pair of boots featured in a single episode of a show like three years ago; no one had them. But some chick in TX trying to make a quick buck was selling a pair. Match made.

Most often, I use Poshmark to find pieces for cosplays I’m loathe to make from scratch. Currently, that means Prompto from FFXV. This nugget. More on that under the cut.

For freshman going into art school: the bare bones recommendations

So ya chose to go to an art school… That’s great! 4 years of coffee and easy mac with a tin of paint thinner are in your future, friend! 

But what do you actually need for an art school? Do you need the master set of pastels and oils or do you just need a pencil? Honestly… It depends on the school. 

BUT!! From my own personal experience at the Kansas City Art Institute, I’m going to make a list of things to bring and what not to bring (at least on move in day). 

HERE WE GO!

The dorm.

Every college is different on how their dorms work. Some are communal (like KCAI) some are single room apartments. But these basics should help you know what to buy and what to leave behind 

( NOTE: every college has a different guide on what to bring and what not to bring. Please adhere to your school’s rules to avoid fines.)

YES list–the things you absolutely should bring

-mini fridge (2.5 cubic ft is good, if you share with your roommate you can go bigger)

-microwave; you OR your roommate. no one needs 2 microwaves.

-string lights. for when ya wanna see your desk but your roommate’s asleep.

-small trashcan. bring a pack of trashbags–draw string is the best.

-shower caddy/bag with flip flops. shower shoes are expensive, flip flops work the same. 

-house shoes. for those cold days and walking to the bathroom.

-a small shelf/storage ottoman/storage seat. You want to have space to store your dry foods and textbooks, but you wanna be able to have a seat other than your desk chair. 

-shoe organizer. whether it actually holds your shoes or not, this is great or organizing things. socks, cleaning supplies, hairspray and febreeze are off your desk and out of your closet. 

-door mirror. you can get some pretty good ones for cheap at walmart or target. be sure of your door dimensions first though. 

-2nd phone charger/long phone cable. for charging your phone in bed or at your desk. you never know how far away the outlet will be. 

-fairly new power strip. just to be safe and to plug all your stuff into. 

-body pillow if you don’t like cold walls. 

-a notebook for each class that involves reading or note taking. you might think you can use a binder for all your classes, but easier organization and lighter backpacks are always good. also keep a highlighter and pen with each notebook. it’ll be well worth it, trust me. no one likes losing pens on exam days. 

-at least 2 rolls of quarters (about $20). laundry. it costs $. at KCAI my laundry usually runs at $3.25 because i add a little more drying time. 

-some sort of storage for your desk that isn’t super heavy. I’m currently using both a plastic crate from walmart for books and a cardboard box to keep stuff away from where I work. 

-water filter pitcher. water purity is different everywhere, and even though the water may be clean, a lot of people get sick their first week in a new area just because of the water difference. a filter eases that discomfort just a bit more. 

-folding laundry hamper. I say folding because it’s easier on move in day and it holds more. win win!

-basic cleaning supplies. messes happen. 

-ETHERNET Cable. the wi-fi WILL go out while you’re at school. it’s just going to. so have an ethernet cable the proper length from the plug to your desk for your computer. (Note: ethernet is only best when the wi-fi is out. it connects to main campus computers and that’s dangerous. PLEASE only use when the wi-fi is down.)

___

NO!! list–leave this behind.

-your massive collection of books. I have too many here myself, but you’re not gonna read or use personal reference books as much as you think. Bring only what you use more than once a month. 

-stereo system. no one likes overly noisy neighbors. 

-pots and pans. unless you live in a swanky apartment dorm with a kitchen, you’re never gonna use that stuff. a coffee mug, bowl, and a microwave are as about as 4-star restaurant as you’re gonna get.

-movies in cases/videogames WITH cases. use a cd binder. works the same and saves space. 

-a bunch of fancy clothes. you’ll really only need 2, maybe 3 nice outfits in art school. pack 2 weeks of tops with 1 week of pants. saves space and laundry you have to do if you alternate weeks. coats, jackets, and cardigans are up to your style.

-anything that takes up more floor space than your fridge or ottoman. UNLESS you know for a fact that you’re gonna set up your desk under your bed in a “T” formation, there’s not much room. so consider a floor pouf or a cushion to go behind the ottoman to make a seat with a back.

-a bunch of purses, shoes, or hats. Again, UNLESS you know exactly how the room is laid out it’s hard to figure out space. if you use a purse, 2 maybe 3 is the most you’ll need. shoes are basically this: everyday, everyday #2, shoes for rain/snow, 2 pairs of nicer shoes, and flip flops for the room if you don’t use houseshoes. 

-your vast collection of coffee/tea mugs. I’m sorry, but you’re gonna have to pick favorites. at most you’ll use 2-3. I personally only have 1 here and then I have my water bottle. 

____

Other than those things, check with your school list when it’s available to you to see what you need and what you don’t. Once you’ve filled the checklist THEN you can start bringing other things like books, pillows, electric kettles, irons, etc.

Every school is different, and KCAI has its own guidelines on what is or isn’t allowed. See what rules you can wiggle around and disguise based on your own needs. (aka not illegal stuff. duh. but like mattress pads and extension cords. 

Now that the dorm is covered, let’s get to actual art stuff! 

The short answer: every school’s different. and KCAI’s freshman/ foundations year is unique compared to other schools’. The reason being is that aside from animation and film, foundation year is like a free sample buffet on what majors there are. We have still lifes, charcoal, woodshop, illustration, writing, sculpture, painting, and individualized work all year. 2nd semester is when classes get more focused but still. it’s kinda crazy but really nice in the long run.

The budget that’s recommended IS a bit um… well… depends on the teacher. I personally had a teacher who liked for us to do a bunch of stuff without fully using our materials or would have assignments where new materials would run out and we’d have to buy more. 

A safe budget for supplies is about $200 per semester. Now, that’s for supplies only. Take into account food and amazon shipping and emergencies for the rest of your $.

Stuff you’ll need that they don’t tell you in the beginning of the year

KCAI offers a “FOUNDATION KIT” at the beginning of the year that is about $250 all together. The list they give you is well organized so you can buy stuff on your own to save money. See what you already have or can buy for cheaper prices before you buy the kit. 

Now, again, every teacher is different. Here’s the BASIC list based on mine and other friends’ experiences. 

-glue gun.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. usually comes with foundation kit. I got a nice Superbonder dual temp. gun at Hobby Lobby with a stand. Works great and has a long cord. 

-more hot glue sticks than you thought was possible. sold in the KCAI campus art store. sculpture and cardboard are gonna be big parts in the beginning of the year, but you’ll be thankful later on. be SURE you’re using dual temp. sticks and the proper size for your glue gun. 

-sandpaper/ sandpaper block.   sold in the KCAI campus art store. not too expensive, like $5. the sanders are gonna be busy in woodshop. 

-safety goggles. sold in the KCAI campus art store. wood dust and/chips hurt. just get some simple safety glasses.

-masks. sold in the KCAI campus art store. not too expensive. get a new one every 3 weeks. about 2 needed in total. 

-measuring tape.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. OR go to walmart/home depot for cheaper. mine is a 12 ft self-lock one. it’s pretty good. 

-painter’s tape.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. I think it comes in the foundation kit, but you’re gonna run out. get at walmart for cheaper.

-(not a need but it’s super helpful) trashbag taped to your desk. saves trips to the trashcan and helps your space stay tidier. 

-speedball carver.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. to carve screenprinting rubber stamps when you get into pattern. PERSONALLY I ordered a set of wood whittling tools on amazon that work the same, were cheaper, and work on more than just rubber stamps (pumpkin carving!!) 

-baby wipes. you don’t really NEED these, as sinks exist, but when you work with charcoal and you don’t have enough time between the next drawing or lunch, these help a bunch. 

-push pins.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. teachers recommend the metal ones, I just use the clear plastic ones. less distracting when critiquing. 

-BIG ruler, more of a yard stick.  sold in the KCAI campus art store(?) I think it comes in the foundation kit, but you can always just buy a cheaper metal yard stick or share with a friend. 

-drawing pencils.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. comes with foundation kit. I’m not talking #2 pencil you use all the time, I’m talking 4B and 6H and such. Get a decent set with a sharpener. 

-vine charcoal.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. comes with foundation kit. this charcoal goes away FAST. get an extra box before classes start. 

-white chalk.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. for when your charcoal is just not erasing. 

-X-acto knife.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. comes with foundation kit. the blade is gonna dull down eventually so get an extra for later. 

-box cutter.  sold in the KCAI campus art store. think it comes with the foundation kit. Now, I personally am terrified of box cutters because I over-think injury possibilities, so I just use my x-acto knife (hello dull blades). But unless you’re a scaredy-cat like me, a simple box cutter is needed. 

-cutting mat, self-healing. sold in the KCAI campus art store (I thiiiiink). those weird green mats you see in sewing sections or on artist speed-draws? yeah you’re gonna need one. Big is good, small is fine too. 

___

Other stuff depends on the teacher. Trips to Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Blick, Creative Coldsnow (kansas city), or other places for supplies IS gonna happen. If you don’t drive, find friends who are doing supply runs too and carpool. 

Art school is crazy and it’s fun, but it IS college. So keep a weekly schedule, take notes, and do your homework. 

Good luck!

———————————————————————————————————-
After a ten minute walk I finally arrived at the dorm. I take out the keys,open the door and enter the well known apartment. I got the keys from Yoongi since I always visit them very late and that on a daily basis. You can say I basically live here already.
I put my bag on the floor, get rid of my shoes and search for my slippers Hoseok bought for me- he calls them our friendship slippers since he bought himself the exact same pair. Red with only one small difference. On his slippers it says JH for Jung Hoseok and on mine you can find my initials.
Until today Yoongi is jealous of them always saying stuff like:
Who is your boyfriend? Me or Hoseok? Just because you know him longer than you know me…’
Thinking of that I giggle to myself, still searching for my pair of slippers.

‘Where are they?’ I whisper.

An unusual silence surrounds me. It’s weird that nobody came to welcome me yet. Are they already sleeping? I look at the clock on the wall: 00:58AM. No, it’s way too early. Maybe they’re working on their mixtapes or on their choreographys? Those boys, always working hard.
My slippers are still nowhere to be found… Whatever I’ll just wear Hoseoks, he probably used mine and tossed them somewhere anyway. I grab my bag and walk through the long hallway, always careful not to make unnecessary noise. In the kitchen I get myself some Ice Tea, thank god they know what I like. After drinking some I look around.
Why is it so calm today? And where is Hoseok? I should send him a message.

What a surprise, why is he even bothering? I can’t help but laugh, he is so extra. Well not like I would mind, I’ll just make myself comfortable in his room then.
I start to take off my accessories and lastly take off my necklace and hold it in my hands thinking that I should get some clothes from Yoongis room first. I really hate bothering him while work and I know he does not like it but I really need something comfy to wear.

With that thought in mind I walk over to his door and gently knock once, twice, three times but no answer. He probably doesn’t hear me since he is working…Well, I should just enter get my stuff and leave before he notices me. He’s probably too focused to do so anyway.
I open the door gently and try not to make any noise and walk straight to the closet to get my stuff. Grabbing a shirt and some shorts I turn around and walk back to the door but on my way I notice bright red slippers in front of Yoongis bed.
Aren’t those mine? Why are they here? Did Yoongi lost his again? Maybe Namjoon broke his?… Whatever. I kneel down to get my slippers and look up to his bed. Didn’t he say he had to work? I cannot help but smile.
He’s probably taking a break and what else would he do but nap?
I get up on my feet so I can look at his full beauty. He always looks so calm and like an angel when sleeping.

But I stop in my tracks and a cold shiver runs through my whole body. I can’t believe my eyes and I blink one, two, three times..Is there another person lying beside -no- on top of Yoongi? Long hair is falling on his chest and her arm is softly falling around his body. Realising what is happening in front of me I let fall everything that I was holding on to.

What is this?

Who is she?

But most importantly… why is she with M Y boyfriend?

Vacation Packing Timeline and Tips!

Hey guys! I’ve gotten a few questions about planning outfits for vacations, as well as packing. I thought I would share my “Vacation Packing Timeline” as well as a few tips and tricks I’ve discovered over the years that just make packing and traveling so much easier. My spring break is in one week, therefore over the past few weeks I have been preparing my clothes, bags, and myself for the trip! These are just a few things that I find helpful during packing/travel!

Preparing/Packing Timeline 

  • Two weeks before a trip: I like to use an app (Stylebook is my favorite; about $3 on the app store, but so worth it) to plan out my outfits that I will be taking on a trip. My general rule is to pack by outfit, not by piece, therefore I will plan specific outfits and save them to the app! I also like to pack things that I can pair 2-3 different ways, that way if I change my mind when I arrive at my destination, I have another way to wear an outfit and it wasn’t a total waste to bring it! For example, pack a top that can be worn with white jeans/regular jeans as well as shorts, but also can be paired with different shoes and jewelry to change the outfit from day to night! Of course there are a few exceptions to this rule…that super cute going out dress and pair of heels…but generally I try to follow it. 
  • One week before a trip: This is when I like to lay my clothes out! I push all my clothes to one end of my closet, and hang the clothes I plan on brining all in one section on the other side, therefore I can see all together how many outfits I’m bringing, if something is too similar, and if something can be paired a few different ways! This is also the time where I look at all my clothes and see if anything needs to be washed, sent to the dry cleaners, or ironed! This takes a lot of time out of packing, that way when I begin to fill my suitcase I know everything is clean and crisp; I don’t have to take time out of packing to clean/iron anything. 
  • One week before a trip: This is also the time where I like to start to pamper myself to ensure I look my best on the trip! I workout year round, but if you don’t, you might want to start a week or two before your trip just to flush out your body and make sure your face is clear and bright! I make sure to eat extra healthy this week, drink tons of water, and spend more time treating myself! I’ll whiten my teeth, use a face mask, exfoliate my skin, wax my eyebrows, get my nails done, and get a spray tan!
  • Five days before a trip: This is when I like to pair my jewelry with my outfits; I tend to always overpack jewelry and find that I don’t even end up wearing half of it! I pick 3-4 necklaces, 3-4 pairs of earrings, and 2-3 bracelets that can go with most, if not all outfits so that I minimize luggage space. This can also be done right from the beginning (or at the packing stage) to avoid an extra step and an extra days work, but I just love packing so much that I don’t mind having something to do each day haha. 
  • Three days before a trip: I like to grab my suitcase out of the garage and make sure I have all the bags I need to pack. Even when I’m not flying I just find it easier to pack everything in one huge suitcase instead of taking a few different bags. I may look funny with a giant suitcase pulling up to my friends house for the weekend, but for me, it’s just so much easier to have everything organized in one place. You can never go wrong with one giant suitcase that fits all your clothes, shoes, hair tools, makeup, accessories, bags, etc.! 
  • Two days before a trip: I begin to pack. I like packing at this point because if I find that I need to run to the store because I forgot something, then I have the time to do it. This reduces so much stress and anxiety for me because then I know I have absolutely everything I need and I’m not running around like a crazy person. This is also when I like to do my laundry that way I have clean pajamas, socks, t-shirts, and other things for the trip. 
  • One day before a trip: This is when I finalize packing. I lay out the outfit I plan on wearing the next day, and finish up my suitcase. Rolling your clothes into a suitcase really does save so much space, unless it is a thick or heavier item. Therefore I lay my jeans, jackets, and sweaters flat, then roll everything else! I will also fill up my travel size containers with shampoo/conditioner, face wash, face lotion, body lotion, etc. I store everything in gallon Ziploc bags because I’m paranoid that something will leak! While I’m doing this I will be checking off items on a packing list I made (because I’m crazy and an outfit planning app isn’t enough) just to make sure I don’t forget anything! Also, I will go through my pantry and fridge and throw out any food that will expire before I come back. I’ll pack a few snacks to have on the way to my destination. If I’m just going to a friends house or my parents house I’ll also pack a small cooler with the foods that are going to expire soon, but that I don’t want to throw out (fruits, veggies, sandwich stuff, milk, etc.). I’ll also clean my apartment and do the dishes so that when I come back from a trip everything is nice and clean so I can just relax after traveling.  

These tips may not work for everyone. However, I find that by taking a few minutes out of each day to check off these tasks I never forget anything while traveling and am so much more relaxed. I am a very organized person and love to take a little time out of each day to accomplish these tasks. I love packing and traveling, so this is fun for me. If you’re one of the people who isn’t obsessed with planning and packing, maybe just follow tips 2 and 7 ;) Hope this was helpful!

ARE WE IN SOUTH AFRICA YET???

Happy Hump Day! Been traveling for work for a few days, and just logged in to catch up, and it feels a little like I fell into a mud hole! Maybe it’s me, but why do I get the feeling that there is some type of SamCait hangover going on??

I just saw the newly released pics from OL with the Claire and Frank thing, and while not my favorite way to promote the show…I get it. Let’s face it….Jamie and Claire are separated for 20 years in those blasted books, and they are going to play that. But, we know how that ends. And, they are not going to tease “the reunion:….at least not yet. We just have to trust in their methods, and I am just going to wait on the final result. And, I trust MBR, who is so heavily involved this year in pivotal moments that I am truly excited for S3!!

As for our dreamy duo….can you imagine their life right now?? They have been working their tails off the past few weeks, and are getting ready to move to another continent! It took me 2 days to pack for a 3 day work trip to Charleston, and I am still missing some of my toiletries, and pissed that I didn’t pack some different shoes (even though the ones I brought are very cute, but I digress)! I cannot imagine what they are doing, so I am giving them a break on this one.

January has been a sublime month for us, and they have really given us much to bask over. And, I believe more is coming. Yes… we are waiting with anticipation on that jersey pic, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The problem here is we always want more (I know I do), because we love it from them. But I think we have to remember they are still slowly raising this curtain, and it might not be something every day. I am A-OK with this, because it is all good!

And, I see the anti’s and nervous Nellie’s are at it again. Don’t you find it funny that since Swiss Miss is out of the picture (and let’s face it, that one is dead and buried, and did you see the latest IG post…"fascinate me”…wtf? Maybe that is why the anti’s are so pissed…yes, it is a piano, and yes those are keys, and is that my head? Geez!), they are back to others who Sam is now with. I find that absolutely hysterical because they are blowing up their own asses, and Sam is not playing with them.

So, I am sailing away with all of the goodies of the lady few weeks, the fact they went to the rugby game, and the Idea that they are packing up their belongings to discover a whole new world….together!! And if we just sit back and play amongst ourselves, I am sure they will continue to play with us! It is all good! We just need to keep believing in Sam and Cait…and I REALLY do these days!

Happy Wednesday sweet shipsters!! Now I must go figure out how to make two conditioners into shampoo. I see a bad hair day coming on!!😲😙❤

The only post I will make about Concrete

I have 3 things to say about it, but that will be the end about it on this blog.
1) Apparently my first reaction was different than most. I loved her design when I first saw it. My first thought was “Oh a cool 3 part fusion that may have been similar to Garnet, and is called Concrete since it’s a mix of several different stones.” Then after reading her description I thought her being Illiterate and collecting shoes was just a trait from being on Earth. I mean, gems have their own language so maybe she couldn’t read our writing because learning new languages is hard for some people. And the shoe thing was because they don’t really need shoes on homeworld and everyone on Earth wears them. I thought her quirks were just that, little things to her character.
2) After seeing the uproar on here I can see why people have issues with her design, but at the same time that was not the intention of the character. She was supposed to have quirks and differences like every other character. She was most likely a very early concept idea for one of the Off Color gems on homeworld or even Garnet, eventually scrapped for a different character. I understand people are upset for the full lipped, illiterate, and black (color not race) character, seeing it as a racial caricature or harmful stereotype, but after an apology from people who were just trying to make a new and interesting character, and you still are outraged? That’s just too much for me. They are sorry and didn’t intend on this being viewed as a racial issue.
3) I wish she had more of a chance to show she was more than a stereotype in the fandom. To me, a fast, permanent fusion, with a weird and silly habit of collecting shoes would’ve fit great with characters like Peridot, Lapis, Steven, and Garnet. I think of Amethyst bringing her shoes she finds at the dump without the other part of the pair, and then her, Amethyst, and Steven go search for it. I think about how she got to Earth, did she work for Yellow/Blue Diamond or what about White Diamond (because of her color scheme)? Would she have issues with being a permanent fusion with being stable, or is she as together as Garnet? Pearl and Steven trying to teach her how to read English, and instead she starts teaching Steven how to read and write in the writing of homeworld. Instead of exploring these ideas and looking at her character for more than just her design, more than being illiterate, the fandom instantly hates her and the ones who made her instead of seeing who she could’ve been even with the faults that are there and the mistakes that were made in this concept art.
I like Concrete. She wasn’t made to offend, I understand why she did, and I see what can be interpreted as racist in her design, but that was not the intention. Her character could’ve had some real potential, and people were too quick to judge to me. The apology should be accepted and the fandom should move on. I know I will. Again, like i said this will be the only post I will make on this matter.
Goodnight.

Five Babysitters who met Tragic Ends

Evelyn Hartley (15)

On October 24, 1953, the student from La Crosse, Wisconsin, was taking care of the 20 month old baby of college professor Viggo Rasmusen. When she failed to check in with her father at 8:30 pm, and his calls to the Rasmusen house went unanswered, he went over there to check. The doors and windows were locked, but he was  able to get in through the basement. The baby was safely asleep in her crib, but Evelyn was nowhere to be found. The scene he encountered was bad. Furniture was in disarray, Evelyn’s broken glasses were found in the living room along with her books and one shoe; the other was in the basement. Even more telling, there were unidentified footprints and blood that matched Evelyn’s type, some in the basement and two big pools outside in the yard.

Police believe Evelyn was taken around 7 pm, because a neighbor heard screams at that time and assumed it was just kids playing. A witness stated that at 7:15 he saw a car speeding, one guy was driving and another was in the backseat with a girl, who was slumped forward.

Days later some blood stained clothes were found about 2 miles from La Crosse. In a different location they found shoes that matched the footprints at the Rasmusen’s, and the blood on the soils was the same type as Evelyn’s. Despite these clues, she was never found and her case remains unsolved. At one point Ed Gein was considered a suspect but he always denied it and there’s no evidence tying him to the crime.

silverheartlugia2000  asked:

ok but can we talk about the design of the scissors themselves? ive noticed that other people with them have different ones and i thought it was similar to getting glasses or shoes, you just go to the store and pick out ones you like. it has a flame crest on it, possibly in accordance to what his trial was or something else that meant something personal to him even. the color and shape has yet to be determined.. its neat and i think it gives a little more depth to his character :3 1/2

2/2 but now i gotta ask, if they weren’t ponyhead’s in the first place, who’s where they? can we guess from the design perhaps?

In the beggining of the episode, Hekapoo says that every Scissors has the name of the one who earned it. The Scissors Marco were using belonged to her

This is probably with the legend, i think, of swords being named in runics after their owners, meaning that they will not be wielded correctly unless the person who owns them is using them. 

So yeah, each pair of Scissor is unique and it’s related to its owner

The lighting here might be affecting the color, but it looks like the Scissors are Prusian Blue, color that Marco already said he liked.

I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this, but Jounouchi has worn the same pair of shoes throughout most of the manga.

Like, the sneakers he got back near the beginning of the manga series (the first chapter of volume 2), his half-price, originally 100,000 yen Air Muscle sneakers that Yugi/Yami Yugi went and got back for him after they were stolen.

I swear that he wears them throughout the rest of the series. I figure it’s because they’re the shoes he saved up for and almost got stung by a scorpion over, but a little part of me likes to think that he wears them a lot because those are the shoes that Yugi got back for him, even though they have a hole in one of them. 

If these are the same sneakers (just slightly different looking each time cause, ya know, art isn’t consistent), then Jounouchi wears the slightly damaged shoes Yugi helped him get back all the time, and if that is a small sign of how important their friendship is, I think I’m pretty gosh darn happy with that.

Hi I just wanted to ask about that executive dysfunction thing, I googled it cause I seemed to relate to the post and it does describe me quite well but I wondered if you might be able to tell me what it's like to actually have? You don't have to if you don't want to, thanks :)

mmh, personally, it’s like my body refuses to follow my brain. it has 2 different sides, one more physical, and one more psychological i guess.

for the first one:
i learned pretty early in my childhood how to tie my shoes by myself, but it still took a tremendous amount of time to do, even though i knew what i had to do, because my hand just wouldnt move like i wanted them to. until i entered highschool all the shoes i had were velcro because i just couldnt bear to spend so much time trying to tie my shoes.
ive been playing piano for about 15 years and while i can know entire songs on piano and where and when i have to hit the keys, my finger will hit the wrong keys even though theyre not what i was aiming for.
im an animator and an artist but despite everything, drawing is really hard because my hands just wont follow my intent and will shake all the time.

for the second one:
literally anything else. if i have to go grocery shopping for someone, i need a very detailed list else ill fuck up more than usual. i know i have some things to do but just cant do them even though there shouldnt be any problem with them.
i have to go across the room but instead ill just get frozen and look at a bare wall for 3 hours because i cant move. that kinda shit
