Commission Progress - 

Fantasy AU Ochako Uraraka || My Hero Academia 


I’m getting closer to being done with @battle-goats ‘s Uraraka commission.  I finished the bag for her belt today (I did not make the bag, I altered it and added details like the sliver and the coins) I also finished assembling her mantel. 

All I have left to do is finish the hand embroidered wing for the hood of the mantel, put attachments on the shoulder armor, make a glove, and finish her beaded belt. 

A Beautiful Lie

A new little something from Jared’s POV. I’m not sure how long it will be or where it’s going yet or if it’s even any good. Your comments, ideas and critiques are NEEDED! Thanks so much for reading guys! I hope you enjoy.

I escaped from the party for a little piece and quiet. The constant ass kissing I’d been receiving was getting on my last nerve and all I wanted was to disappear. I had silenced my cell as to not be interrupted with any frantic text messages from anyone searching for me. I sat, minding my own business enjoying the cool night air, the clear sky and finally felt my tense muscles start to unwind.

I heard a familiar voice shouting and knew it was Jake, long before I saw him. I sighed, and retreated further into the darkness, not wanting any part of his argument with whatever starlet he’d brought along tonight. Whoever she was, she clearly wasn’t happy with him.

jameskmitch  asked:

Have you seen any other costumes (Phantom non-replica or otherwise) that are clearly influenced by the Moreau painting of Salome? (As always, I LOVE your tumblr and appreciate the fantastic detail and meticulous tagging)

That’s a good question. It’s a motif Moreau repeated over and over again, varying his Salome in attire and details. Here’s three variations of the painting, where Salome’s pose is about the same, but her attire vastly different.

The latter seems to be the main inspiration for Carlotta’s Elissa costume sketch, with a basically identical shawl, crown and bead belt, a similar pose, and of course the head is also a nice hint, albeit one is the apparition of John the Baptist, while the other looks like the severed head of Beethoven:

I’m sure there’s dozens of other theatrical productions to use the painting as an inspiration for costumes. Alas I can’t think of any right now. But it’s definitely one of the paintings designers is aware of and is likely to turn to when recreating the opera costume look of the Victorian era. Anyone else with inputs of other costume designers using Moreau’s Salome(s) as inspiration?
