but the end results pretty neat i think

When I was really young, I bought a plastic model kit of a human skull (I guess my mother must have bought it for me now that I think about it). Made by the Skillcraft Company, it was pretty detailed and complex, some of the teeth were in two pieces and required assembly. The end result was a neat anatomically correct human skull, and the coup de grâce - it was made from glow-in-the-dark plastic. Anything that glows green in the dark is an instant obsession to a boy. I spent way too much time studying it in the dark… seeing how bright I could get it to glow by leaving it on the top of a lamp for a really long time, or making dark hand prints on it by keeping my hand on it while bathing it in light.

One night after turning off the lights and going to bed, my brother and I heard a noise from the closet. It was one of those moments where you freeze and attempt to process what’s happening. Then we heard the closet door slowly begin to open. Out floated a glowing green skull in a pitch black room. It was a combination of horrified screams and uncontrollable laughter as it floated towards us and dove at us. It made figure-8’s in the air before it came back for another attack. You could hear my dad stifling his laughter at the end of the assault as the skull opened our bedroom door and floated out and away.

well this is the new addition to the salad bar. i was thinking that going full white is unoriginal af, but in the end it’s so neat and pretty and makes me feel even unique, dare i say.

i spoiled her with so many things. two kits, dreamthistle greatsword, celestial dye, the crossing, dryad set??? when will i stop? ?? we may never know.

her name is Evharit, she was born AFTER the Pact crashed, so she’s naive and completely missed out on the fun disaster that were sylvari on that day. she’s curious and kind, sadly the stigma that Mordremoth brought resulted in people distancing themselves from her - so her best friends are her minions.

(ftm) do you know of any makeup tutorials to make my face look more masculine without assuming that every afab knows a lot about makeup? I really want to use makeup to make myself look more like a boy, but I don't understand the terminology at all.

Hey! I just saw this video today - I think it does a good job with not assuming you know makeup stuff, tells you exactly what everything is doing towards the goal of making you look more masculine, and the end result is pretty neat too.

Hope that helps! :)

Sorry for the lack of updates! I was down with a bad cold for a whole week and didn’t update anything. I didn’t get much done in general but I did manage to bead this headpiece, which i’m pretty happy with so far!

The piece is based on medieval/renaissance headpieces, but i’m not aiming for accuracy here. It’s just a design that I thought would look neat. The base is felt interfacing with wire sewn into the edges. It’s covered with upholstery velvet and shantung. I embellished it with fake pearls, glass seed beads, and a resin gem.

I’m going to add skewers to the top and a veil. I think the end result will be neat!
