It looks like a dollop of French mustard

It looks like an upside-down stack of wilting daffodils

It looks like someone thought “What if the curtain dress from ‘Gone with the Wind’ looked more like actual curtains?”

It looks like a 5-year-old with crayons tried to draw Belle’s gold dress by memory and someone tried to replicate it in reality.

It looks super easy for Disney to reproduce and mass-market, which makes way too much sense for my comfort.

King of the Resting Bitch Face: An Anatomy of Yami Yugi/Atem Expressions

There are two parts to a typical Yami Yugi/Atem face. 1. His eyebrows must intersect with his top eyelids and 2. his irises (sometimes pupils) are partially obscured by either his top or bottom eyelids. 

Ex. 

90% of all Yami faces meet these requirements.

However,

If either or both of these criteria are not met you can get-

Giant dork in a flimsy bad boy costume made from his boyfriend’s leather fetish and overcompensating machismo.

Or shit is fuckening and I promise, PROMISE that you do not want any part of it.

Chlonath Week Day 3: Art

~*~

On the first Friday of the month, an art gallery filled exclusively with works dedicated to the heroes of Paris opened, and Ladybug, Chat Noir, and Queen Bee were invited to attend.

“I kind of feel bad showing up in costume, though,” Ladybug muttered as they walked through the gallery, admiring each piece. “One of these days, I’ll have to design—err, buy a skirt to slip on over this suit.”

“You leave that to me, Ladybug. I’ll buy you all the skirts you could ever want. We are besties, after all,” Queen Bee said. Her eyes skipped over the umpteenth Chat Noir painting and scanned the room for a hint of yellow. She knew she was still a newbie, but…

“If anyone’s going to buy Ladybug a skirt, it’ll be me,” Chat Noir said. “For our moonlit stroll along the Seine,” he added with a purr and waggle of his eyebrows.

Ladybug sighed. “Or we could just forget I said anything.”

Queen Bee wandered away from the might-as-well-be-married superhero couple and stepped through a doorway into another part of the gallery. More Ladybug pieces. More Chat Noir pieces. She had just about given up on finding anything dedicated to her when she turned and came face-to-face with a Queen Bee painting that must have been two feet taller than she was. It dominated the entire wall, depicting her in a warrior’s stance with a blazing sunset behind her. 

She looked fearsome. Powerful. Awe-inspiring. But the expression on her face was a gentle one—a superhero who loved her city above everything else.

It filled her with shame.

Her gaze caught on the signature in the corner and she laughed. Nathanael Kurtzberg. How had she expected anyone else?

“Wow!” Chat Noir cried from behind her. “That’s amazing, Bee! You must be flattered.”

She took a deep breath, then turned. “Of course I’m flattered. It’s about time someone in this city acknowledged my magnificence.” She brushed past him. “I’m done here. Tell Ladybug I went home,” she said.

“Oh, uh… okay. Good night, Bee.”

She made it a block away from the art gallery before she took off running, her vision blurred by tears.

‘The Walking Dead’ Costume Designer Reveals How the Women Survive the Zombie Apocalypse
The AMC drama’s season 7 finale airs tonight.
By Charlie Carballo

Throughout the show’s run there have been subtle changes in wardrobe styles for the characters. For katana-wielding Michonne’s introduction in season 3, actress Danai Gurira’s heroine was equipped with a boot that symbolized strength.

“Michonne has lots of studs on her boot in the beginning — that was all a part of the plan, but Danai, in real life, wanted something more comfortable for her knees,” she said. “So I covered her sneakers — a hiking boot covered with a leather boot topper so it makes it look like boots, but it’s really not.

Gurira’s customized footwear now features buckles and straps.

“With her, especially, everything she’s wearing is on purpose,” Womble added.“When you see her coming, you’re like, ‘oh s**t, maybe you don’t want to mess with this one.’ She looks like she’ll take you out — it’s like a warning. If you see her in the apocalypse, you’re going to be afraid.”

Womble said that designing for Michonne ‘s season 4 flashback scene is among her favorite style moments.

“She was a lawyer before she became Michonne, the warrior,” Womble explained. “When you go back in time and she’s a mom, with a baby and in a fancy apartment with artwork. I wanted her to look like an African princess,”Womble said, adding that she took inspiration from Gurira’s Zimbabwean ancestry. “I made things that were soft. It was very African-inspired. It was so beautiful and orange. Because it was a dream [sequence], I enhanced it and made it more fancy than anything you would have on in the house.”

Missing him~ Part 1 (Cole Sprouse x reader)

As you sat on the plane a you felt a wave of anxiety rush from your stomach to your head, immediately taking the place of the intense excitement you felt just moments before. You were a few minutes from landing, on a flight from JFK to Vancouver, where you would see him for the first time in two months. It had been hell, the late nights on face time and the arguments over the phone were getting too much for you both. You needed to take a break from work in the city to visit him, or the relationship you had built over the years could crumble.

You met Cole whilst you both studied at NYU, in your third year, he had studied archeology, and you majored in photography, an interest you shared that brought you close together. You had been together for 3 years, and had supported him through his recent success, but it was hard being apart for so long. You now worked as an independent photographer in New York, and you were successful. Your Instagram following had grown massively over the past year or so, and you had even done print work internationally. Although, your fame was nothing compared to his. You shared an apartment together in Brooklyn with your cat Yoko and French Bulldog Rocky, the thought of them made you smile. (Dylan was pet-sitting whilst you were away.)

Cole was in the middle of filming season 2 of Riverdale, it was October and you hadn’t seen him since the cast’s last break in August. You chatted everyday, but you felt you had been drifting recently. This scared you. Cole was your rock and admittedly, the love of your life. That thought brought you back to reality and some of the anxiety had faded. You peered out the window to see bright city lights. Not long now…

As you landed and switched on your phone a few messages popped up:

Lili: Can’t wait to see you babe! It’s been too long haha, let me know when u arrive Xx

Mom: Love you hun, don’t worry about this, it will work out I promise :) X

Cole: I know ur in the air right now, but call me when you land -Cx

~

After going through customs and collecting your baggage you found a seat in the arrivals lounge and made the call. It rang for a long time, but he picked up. You gulped.

“hey” a familiar voice said, “how was the flight?”.

“yeah good, I slept most of the way” you giggled, relieved to hear his voice again.

“Good, um so..ok, don’t hate me, but I can’t come an collect you, It’s just we’ve been running behind on some scenes and I can’t let the crew down and I just..”

“It’s fine, It’s ok, you didn’t need to” you interrupted

“I wanted to though…” he said sweetly. You smiled, imagining him sulking.

“Cole, I’ll be fine” you tried to calm him. “I used to come here all the time with my parents, I know the city, and plus I’ll just get an Uber”.

“Ok.. Ok, we wrap at 10, so I’ll see you after, Lili will meet you at the studio, yeah?”

“Yes, Ok see you then”

“Love you”

You paused

“Love you too” You smiled. Great, some time to compose your thoughts… but hearing these words when he was in your vicinity made you feel relieved yet anxious. It’s going to be ok, you thought, It will be fine.

As you drove through the bustling City of Vancouver on a Friday night, you thought about what you were going to say to him. You sighed. It was no use, you didn’t even understand the feelings you were experiencing. You texted Lili back.

You: Hey!! I’m like 5 mins away, will you come and meet me at the gate so I’m not wandering around like an idiot trying to find you guys? Xx

She answered immediately :

Lili: Of course, I’ll be right there Xx  

You smiled, Lili was such a good friend, although she was Cole’s on-screen lover, there was no weirdness between you two. Lili and Cole’s relationship was almost Brother-Sister like in real life, although they did play up for the fans a bit, purely for the publicity of the show. You kept your relationship with Cole private, not wanting to jeopardise either of your careers, there was speculation, but you never admitted to anything. It was better this way, you two weren’t huge lovers of PDA or social media bragging anyway, so this way suited you both.

As you approached the gate of the studio, you saw a familiar blonde-haired figure waving, You laughed, she was still head-to-toe in Betty attire, the high pony tail and pink jumper hidden under a  pink robe, she had obviously just come from her trailer. You thanked the driver and got out of the car, running towards her, your suitcase behind you, you squealed and she hugged you. “Hey!” she said in the sweetest voice, “How you doing?”

“Great!” you said, “What about you?”

“Exhausted” she sighed, “We started at 6 today, but you’re here now so I’m so excited” she chuckled. “Was the flight Ok and everything?”

“Yeah, it was fine.. It’s so good to see you Lil, I feel so isolated in New York” 

“God, try being here for 6 months” she laughed, “Come on lets go in, it’s freezing!”

You began walking to the studio reception, where you could leave your bags.

“Loving the dressing gown by the way”

“I know right, it’s the height of fashion”

“As always”  you joked

~

As you entered the reception and signed in, you were greeted by a few familiar cast and crew members as they left for the night. It was so nice to be back, you had visited twice last year during filming and got to know the cast and crew really well. You sat in the reception catching up with Lili, while you waited for him to finish his scene. You spilled to Lili about how you were feeling, and she comforted you with reassuring comments about how Cole would gush about you everyday. You smiled. While beginning to tell Lili about your recent work and projects, you heard a familiar voice from behind you. “Hey”.

Your stomach dropped, you turned around, met his eyes and smiled. “Hi” you said, holding back the tears. Just being near him made all your doubts fade away. You were absolutely smitten. There was silence, and then…

“Um ok, wow, I’ll leave you guys to it, see you tomorrow at breakfast then” Lili chuckled.

“Yeah, see you tomorrow Lil, thanks for waiting with me” you smiled at her and she left awkwardly.

You stood up and walked towards the tall figure in the doorframe, still dressed as Jughead. You both couldn’t hold back your smiles.

“What’s up Juggie?” you joked.

“Shut up” he laughed. He removed Jughead’s beanie and ran his long fingers through his hair. He smirked and grabbed for your hand, intertwining your fingers. The rush from his touch was intoxicating, it filled you with pure happiness. You looked into his reassuring eyes. As you smiled at each other, you both felt complete again. He pulled you closer, leaned in and kissed your forehead, the smell of cigarettes and peppermint flooded the air as he did so. You felt at home. You wrapped your arms around him, placing your hands on his back, as you said “I missed you so much, you don’t even know”.

“Trust me I do” he gushed.

You smiled, and kissed him gently. You were in heaven. Your lips parted briefly as he said “Come on, I need to get out of these clothes”. You unwillingly left your embrace and walked towards your bags. He grabbed your suitcase and you began to walk towards his trailer, where he could change. The set was still bustling although it was late, as you weaved through the various trailers, you smiled at familiar faces until you got to his. He opened the door and gestured for you to enter, as you did, you were hit with a strong smell, his smell, your favourite and most familiar smell. His cologne mixed with cigarettes. You were home with him. Finally. You smiled, as you flopped onto the couch in the corner. “Tired?” he asked

“Nope just happy” you laughed and he smiled at you.

“You wanna drink” he gestured to the fridge whilst pulling off his shoes, with a grimace on his face.

“No, I’m ok” you giggled. He changed into his clothes, a vintage black t-shirt, blue jeans and his shearling jacket. He placed his costume into a pile that was gathering in the corner, he was so messy, you felt bad for the costume designer who would have to sort that out. He grabbed his camera and backpack, and you left. It was getting late and you were starving. As you made your way to his jeep you held hands as he dragged your suitcase. You were staying for a week and then the cast got a break, so Cole would come back home to New York for another two weeks. You smiled at the thought of this. You placed your stuff into the car, hopped into the passenger seat and he drove to the apartment where he was staying.
