constumer

again my personal taste has a lot to do with why i prefer frozen, and i think anybody who knows me irl and knows what i enjoy would guess which movie l’d have preference to.

like honestly if didney set out to make a princess movie specifically targeting me, besides pirates it would be frozen,,

visually the darker blue/green/purple colour scheme is one i really like, i more or less even based my prom dress on those colours that’s how much i enjoy them. and frozen has a lot of those in both constume and setting.

hell, just the scenery of fjords is something i love, this movie made me go to norway so i could see the landscapes in person.

another visual motif i adore are slavic decorative paintings. the early concepts of frozen had more slavic tones to it but norwegian traditional art shares a lot in common in both art and clothing. i love the background details in the movie showcasing them, i wish there was more

as somebody who greatly appreciates films set in a certain historic location, i think it’s easy to understand why tangled didn’t fit the bill as much. it more or less takes place in fantasy fairy tale land of no discernible location which works for the movie, but is a thing that never stuck with me. 

tangled more or less based its visuals on 18th-19th century romantic european paintings and illustration. which is something in itself that i like the concept of, but i think the aesthetic wasn’t pushed so hard in the final film. which i can understand, because tonally it wouldnt fit the movie so much, and i think in general that artstyle would mesh more in a hand drawn or very stylized 3d film instead. i guess that extra ‘push’ of historic concepts is what i wish for.

finally as for music, i am slut for theatre and frozen’s music direction is more towards the musical theatre area and i also love wicked so theres that. tangled is more towards the pop genre which i am less partial to.

and as for character design, physiologicially i dont hold either characters’ physiques above another, i just really like norwegian dresses.

tl;dr: i like frozen better than tangled on a basis of personal taste and aesthetic, somebody could just as easily do the same thing favouring tangled and neither opinion is right or wrong.

There's this store I go to regularly, they sell like CDs and Electronics and shot like that. And there's this one person who works there and they're so cool! They always wear awesome makeup and jewellery and always dress hella cool (once they full on dress like a pirate but it wasn't a cringey constume Yknow) and they usually give me free promo posters for bands albums and they're just, so sweet. I hope they get all the good things in life that they deserve

I admit I’ve been “star struck” by an employee from a craft store I used to frequent. She was model pretty and I just really wish I looked like her. She wore her hair in big curls, always wore such pretty blouses, and had on perfect make up all the time. I told her once I loved her hair and felt like I was being creepy so I never said it again. lol She was also really nice and, really really really the kind of person I always wanted to be. I tend to idolize anyone who is prettier than me or has amazing clothes while also being kind. I probably sound seriously creepy so I’m going to stop. -Abby

Red’s tie appreciation

4x10 The Forecaster

My beloved “death-tie” all through the episode <3
(worn before in 3.17, 3.18, 3.20, 3.23 and 4.07)

I’ve said it before, that while I think it’s really just a random pick by the constume department, I’d like to see Red wearing it to point out that he’s still hurting, that he’s still struggling with the betrayal. Signaling Lizzie: remember what you did?
And imo it’s something James would think up too.

Penny Dreadful (2014-16)

For the past three days I’ve binged watched all three season of this show and after just minutes coming off the last episode I have to say that this show’s writers truly belong in hell.


There are plot lines that are lazily wrapped up, and too many instances of characters making confoundingly stupid choices.  Like, to the level of me face-palming and going, “Why, why?  That’s so fucking stupid, why would you do that?”


And I wouldn’t be so annoyed if it weren’t for the fact there are parts of this show that really work well.  Amazing sets and constumes, beautiful lighting and camera-work, and this heavy-handed orchestral score that fits perfectly with the show’s themes of love, sin, and forgiveness.  Of self-discovery and self-actualization.  Of family, friendship and loyalty.  And classic Victorian horror.

Of course, I can neither forget Eva Green’s transfixing work here as Vanessa Ives; she’s manic, but regal; steely-eyed, but vulnerable; sensuous, but devout.  Literally, the only thing that kept me clicking “next episode” was Eva Green and her praiseworthy antics as the richly characterized Miss Ives.


But, man, this show has a shitty, shitty ending.  Like, on the same level as Battlestar Galactica kind of shitty.  Ugh.  Seriously, how fucking lazy did these writers get?

i get on my little Sjw™ bike everyday and ride to Sjw school™ to learn how to ruin the lives of the patriarchy’s followers. in my Advanced Sjw™ classes i learn to destroy the belief egalitarians are any less than butthurt feminists,and in my final class at Sjw School™ i wear an insect constume and worship Steve Buschemi.
