Yo I just did a mass unfollow of inactive blogs so I need new blogs to follow. Like if you post stuff like:
•aesthetic (space, forest, spooky, gore/sharp teeth, subverted religious imagery, cute stuff, pixels, or jazz age/art deco era stuff, really anything since my tastes are pretty broad)
•art (any sort, but I really love flat design and unique art styles)(I reallllly love art blogs)
•Fashion (formal wear, ouji, and alt fashion especially)
• Pokemon
•deer, bats, crows, goats, sheep, and similar animals
•supernatural stuff ( esp. cryptids and aliens)
•interesting random things
If I think its interesting, I’ll follow!

And this hood was pretty completed (this was the time when I was seriously obsessed with Japan), but then I got myself fully switched to creating hood decos all the time I could spend on TS2. See these two bridges? One of those is a railway bridge. I’ve just added double railway tracks and poles to ingame stone bridge. Then I decided to create a railway set. And this is why the trains and engines based on Japanese prototypes.
