“I HATE MY LIPS”

After I took this boy’s picture, I was told by his mom how self conscious he is about his vitiligo that’s developed over the past year. She told me that he hates his lips. He avoids looking at himself in the mirror and can hardly smile in pictures because he can’t bear the thought of his “ugly” lips being preserved in photographs. Can y'all do me a favor and like or reblog this? I wanna show him this post so he can see how poppin he actually is. I want him to realize that his skin is flawless and that his vitiligo is just an additional mark of distinction to the already unique beauty that is Blackness, in all of its various shades.

in this era that we’re in, self-love is crucial and we can’t afford to have our black children facing the world with anything less than overwhelming love and pride in their skin. Instagram.com/themightydexter

Weirdmageddon Pt. 3: Take Back The Falls
Aired 1 year ago (February 15, 2016)

Just a lil side note: i almost failed maths in grade 5-8. Now, I’m doing 2 Maths subjects (straight A+’s) and ranked the third highest in my class for the harder maths subject (out of 20 students). You can do anything if you set your mind to it. Be persistent. Happy studying! :)

1. Keep up do date with the class

Even if the teacher doesn’t set homework, there is always an expectation that whatever excercise isn’t finished in class, you do at home! My maths class moves very fast (we do about 3 concepts/excercises each class) and so its crucial that the first thing I do when I get home, is finish off my maths questions! This is particularly important in the learning process, because if you understand it when you learn it, you will be far ahead of anyone else in an upcoming test- all you will need to do is revise!

This means:

- don’t sit next to anyone distracting

- work efficiently in class

- the time that your waste in class, is the time you will have to spend at home

2.  Do ALL the practice questions in your textbook

In my harder maths class, there are about 20 questions per excercise/concept (100+ per chapter) and so we might only get told to do about half of that. But, I strongly reccommend doing all of the questions! It is great practice and really consolidates your learning! 

ALSO, as the questions go on, they tend to get harder. DON’T GIVE UP IF THEY’RE TOO HARD. Ask the teacher’s help, persevere, or look for a video on YouTube. These are the questions that will most likely be in your tests/exams.

If you can do the hardest question, you can most likely do all the questions!

If you get a question wrong, do AT LEAST 5 more of the same style, make sure you know it well!

3. Practice is everything

You cant really study for maths the same way that you might study for science. There is nothing to memorise (apart from formulas, but the best way to remember them is to practice). Studying for maths IS doing practice questions. That’s all there is to it.   

 - listen to some tunes (music with lyrics is fine for maths!)   

 - put on a movie ( just try to not get too distracted)    

- find a comfy space   

 - just start studying.

4. How to study for maths when you’re sick of it all

Humans are creatures of habit. We like routines and we stick to them. BUT, studying maths can become tedious if you are constantly doing the same thing every time.

CHANGE IT UP Y'ALL:

    - ditch the notebook and pencil. Buy some non-permanent glass markers and do some maths on your windows or mirrors! I do this ALL THE TIME! It’s actually really fun and it makes me feel like Russell Crowe from ‘A Beautiful Mind’ (haha). Alternatively, you could also use a whiteboard if you have one!   

    - study in the library or another part of your house! 

    - buy some different stationery (this is always so fun)

5. For an upcoming test…

  1. do all the chapter review questions in your textbook. These tend to be a compilation of all the most important questions you will need to know. Take your time, don’t give up.
  2. Seek external resources for questions. I own other revision books for maths that isn’t part of my school’s recommended material. These really help when you need more questions to test yourself on.
  3. Do practice papers. THESE ARE CRUCIAL. Most of the time, the material that they test you on will be from past papers, the questions are the same, but they change the numbers!
  4. Take a deep breath. Drink some water. Focus. Time management is the issue for most people (including me :)), so when you feel like a question is too challenging, move on, come back to it when you finish with a fresh mind!

empty houses don’t have an emphasis, they are not a focus of the individual’s life, energy is not deposited here. it exists, as life does, but its not a crucial part of life, so theres not really a reason to go into it so much, everyone has signs on the house cusps and cusp rulers which colour the expression. like no direct planets in the 5th house doesnt mean you won’t have children for example, lots of people have children, it just means you wont see having a child as being integral or developing. by alluding to empty houses being a form of deficit creates a complex and means we are living life on someone else’s terms. when outer planets transit through empty houses, a significant focus on an element of life that had been previously neglected can occur. like somebody who was had been negligent or frivolous with relationships has an empty 7th house but saturn moves through the house by transit and suddenly the individual’s whole consumption becomes relationships and its seriousness for 2 and a half years for example 

Clown owners PLEASE READ THIS!!!! MANDATORY FOR ANY GOOD CLOWN OWNER!!!

It’s a well known fact that people prefer to buy young clowns. There’s a common belief that clown pups are easier to train, more docile, and just much simpler to take care of starting from that age. While this is true to an extent, many people still do not treat their clown pups correctly.

Taking care of any age and breed of clown pup is very precise and risky business. So, I’m going to go through appropriate safety tips. 

Note: Clown pups are clowns ages 0-5. After that, there is the clownlet stage, then the clown adolescence stage, which will each be their own post.

Clown Pup - Ages 0-5

Clowns can live an incredibly long time, some breeds going into the triple digits of age. However, a clowns first years are the most important in it’s entire development cycle. This is why its CRUCIAL to leave a clown pup with it’s mother for the first 3 years of it’s life, at the least.

The mother clown teaches the young pup important skills, such as appropriate honking behavior, the basic clown hierarchy, and how to tell different breeds of clowns apart (a skill that may seem daunting to humans, but comes quite naturally for most breeds of clown).

If a clown pup is prematurely taken from it’s mother, many dangerous and unhealthy things will occur. The clown pup will be much more aggressive, antisocial and even less colorful.

HOWEVER, you can still take care of clown pups younger then 3 years, as long as their mother spends adequate time with the pup as well. 


Pictured above is a healthy young domestic clown pup (more specifically, a tie-dye domestic breed). You can tell because it’s hair is bright and colorful, and it’s facial markings are JUST starting to come in. The red on it’s nose indicates that the clown is able to honk. Any clown pup with dull hair, a blank nose and/or no facial markings is unhealthy, and should be examined by a clown vet IMMEDIATELY. 

Clown pups around the age of 3 and younger do not need their own circus tent, as they will share one with their parents. However, it is important to get them a clown nest, usually in the form of a ball pit.

These Clown pups need a diet of freshly whipped cotton candy, almost exclusively. This is because their fangs aren’t fully grown in, meaning they can’t properly eat fresh peanuts, lollipops, or other clown treats. These foods could also pose a choking hazard for young clowns.

As far as entertainment goes, they will usually be content with their parents to play with - and if possible, their littermates. Balls, bubbles and balloons are great toys for when they get bored- and they also teach them proper clowning behavior. Introducing them to a clown car at this young age is also incredibly important.




Pictured above is a Rainbow Patch Stripe, around 4 years of age. You can see this clown has it’s own horn, a signature for it’s breed. At this age, clowns begin to experiment with their breeds skills.

 It is crucial for you to buy your clown the proper equipment at this age. This can include boxes, horns, balloons and more, but it really depends on the breed.

As the clown pups get older, they can slowly get separated from their mother more and more. At the age of 5, most clown pups can even honk on their own! The clown development process truly is beautiful..


If you follow these rules, the first 5 years of a clown pups life will go by smoothly. Remember, clowns are a commitment - and they’re always worth it. 

anonymous asked:

Heya, so I was wondering how exactly do you finish off the edge of a mouth on a toony suit? I haven't seen a single tutorial or guide explaining it anywhere. Do you sew the fur over the top of a glued lining? Or the other way around? Or get an extra piece of mouth fabric and make a lip? Or sew the two pieces together, slip it on the head and somehow glue it down?

I have only recently mastered this after … gosh, however many years I have been making costumes. It has taken a lot of research and development to get myself to this point. So I appreciate credit, but also sincerely hope y’all have a chance to chip in to my Patreon if you get the chance, it will continue to encourage my innovation and show me you appreciate these sort of replies – in a financially supportive way!


I pattern my fursuit heads to have a liner that is non-balaclava based. That means I build my foam head shapes first, hollow them as much as I can, and then tailor a liner to fit the interior. This liner I sew from quilted broadcloth, and then I use either lycra ironed to interfacing or anti-pill fleece for the mouth lining/eye lining(sometimes I add in lining for ear vent holes and the neck as well). For someone making their own head, you can make a tape pattern of half of the interior, mirror it, and then tailor a liner based off that.

Tip: Save that primary liner pattern, it generally can be revised for each new head for a custom fit. As you make more heads you get a better sense of what needs revised about it. I save almost all my patterns and revise them for use on future masks and it saves me a lot of time so I don’t have to repeat tasks from scratch, and I can learn more from it each time.

Here is the start of my liner – before I add ear vents and before I add the neck and mouth on – This is the general shape I have saved and tailor or revise for use in future heads.

When I get to the mouth – the part that was asked about! I carefully tape-pattern the desired mouth shape, it gets cut out with a very small margin since I hand-sew the fur to mouth (I will describe this a little later). Be sure to sew anything that needs sewn directly to the liner, including any other accessories – like teeth & tongue (they can also be marked out on the tape pattern)!

You can (sort of) see even the mouth corners are patterned in, too. Those are the triangular-looking extra pieces coming off the left and the right. This liner & teeth & velcro for the tongue is all machine-sewn up to this point.

The time I install the liner comes before I fur the mask. Its crucial! First I pin it in place as a “dry fit,” sometimes I do another revision step once I see it all together. Once finalized, then I start gluing down all the easy-to-glue loose edges (I use hot glue).

When I need to glue down an interior segment I cannot reach easily: I cut a small slice in the foamwork, fit the glue tip in to reach the liner, glue the liner through the slice and then squirt a bit more glue to close that slice in the foam right back up. When gluing down the mouth leave a margin of unglued area around the edges – those will be sewn.

This is the glued down interior. I have also cut openings for my eyes and very large ear vents (those are BIG but well-hidden in the “C” curve of my ear’s base, btw.)

Tape pattern the rest of your critter for your fur. Measure your pattern, order your fur, and when it arrives cut your pattern and sew it up however you wish. Leave the jaw separate from the face, it will be easier to attach to the liner.

Use a blanket stitch or similar to sew your jaw fur on! Matching thread color to fabric is important, as it may show.

The end result is very clean once turned right side out.You can see on my upper mouth where I left the edge unglued to instead be sewn. The top jaw and mouth corners, too, were sewn in this way.

You can also use this technique to sew the inside liners of ears or other areas that need a smooth edge but may call for separate treatment from the rest of the head. 

Happy crafting! For more costume tutorials, visit my website Matrices.net
