Garish Room #28 [2017 ver. member A to Z case of Ruki] part 1

- Actor (favorite actor / actress, own acting ability)

Ruki: I watched the movie “Mommy” and the roles in it are very well executed. Antoine-Olivier Pilon plays the role of a guy with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder),  but I was very impressed, thinking that although he is young, he already has such amazing acting skills. And I like Jake Gyllenhaal. But I haven’t acting skills. Since I’m just not that type of person (laughs). Beginning to be shy, I just can’t stand it, and therefore I cannot remember the words at all. But during the performances I feel calm. When I hold the microphone, I’m all right. However, in the video, the one who gets recognition is more a director and his mores, not actors, right? Once upon a time I played an insignificant role in one video, but it was a complete failure. I wouldn’t like to see it again a second time (laughs).

- Baby (when you behave like a child)

Ruki: By and large, I don’t behave like a child. Perhaps I have many negative personality traits. I have no sense of time… basically I’m not at all reliable (laughs). And since that time, when I was a child, it’s hard for me to get up in the morning. So, since then, I thought that I wouldn’t become an employee of any company. I think that such place is not suitable for me.

- Christmas (memories of christmas)

Ruki: I can’t tell stories about that time when I was in the middle and high school (laughs). What I very clearly remember…in those days when I was an elementary school student, there was gilded series of toys in a heat-resistant alloy “Saint Seiya” [*manga and anime]. It doesn’t even need to specify which of them I wanted, because usually everyone expects that they can get Seiya, don’t they? But I hardly got the figure of character-the villain Taurus Aldebaran. In addition, the part of his horn was rusty. So I was beside myself with anger, these are my memories (laughs). And I also with great difficulty shoved my legs into containers in the form of boots, where candies are usually placed, and decided to walk in them.

- Danger (it was dangerous!)

Ruki: That unpleasant time, when we continued to work with two managers, was creepy, isn’t it (bitter smile). I wonder what other guys answer? Is it possible that we had anything more dangerous than this?

- Emergency (things you think you need to do now, as soon as possible)

Ruki: There is a lot of! For example, I still didn’t write the lyrics to 「taion」, which we will record the day after tomorrow, so I need to hurry with this. If we talk about things that do not concern work, it occurs to me that I didn’t receive my ID card.

- Fashion (preferences in style)

Ruki:  It seems that I have them, but it is not.  I really like European-style clothes, but those that I wear every day mostly single-color and without patterns. I have a feeling that among such things I’m looking for suitable ones. The print on clothes is ok, too, but such clothes that I would like to wear is very hard to find. Next, there is no more clothes about which I would have thought “I want this!”, so I create it (with the help of my brand). Therefore I wear it, but when some of this is worn by other members, I immediately stop wearing it (laughs). Ah, maybe I yet like it when a person, who I don’t know, wears my brand’s clothes. I don’t take up making things of too high brands, but at the same time I buy unusual things.

- Ghibli (Ghibli’s favorite works)

Ruki: Not that I really liked them, but among them there are those that I can watch, as “Spirited Away” or “Kiki’s Delivery Service”.  Although, I don’t watch them very long (laughs). But those who like Ghibli, certainly, also will choose “Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind” and “Laputa - Castle in the Sky”, which I don’t like at all.  Perhaps this is my prejudice, but I don’t like something like “flying in the sky” and such things. And then something else like how they get out of huge cars (laughs). First of all, I donэt like science fiction, but its pretty realistic representation, it’s probably a good thing, isn’t it?

- Health (what do you pay special attention in the field of health)

Ruki: I always take biologically active supplements. And I realize that in order not to catch cold, you need to take vitamins. During the tour, even when I sleep, I always put a mask on my face, but, despite this, I still catch a cold. As for food, I don’t pay much attention to it. I eat everything.

- Immorality (about treasons, which became a hot topic in 2016)

Ruki: Treason… Watching this, I felt that I am very sorry for those who are deceived. Couldn’t they have discovered it so far?  This is also often said in the news. But I think: “How is it?”. Well, if we talk about treason as such, then it is considered that before marriage it is allowed. But even if it’s not a treason, when someone looking like a persone without drawbacks, does something that causes bitter feelings behind your back, I immediately think: “ahaaaa…” (laughs). “Love intrigue,” in a literal sense, an amazing thing, isn’t it?

- Junk (unnecessary things at home)

Ruki: I do not have that.  Since I almost immediately get rid of them. I’m not used to things,  and I’m not that type of people who think - I’ll leave this and this too. Clothes that I don’t wear for a year, I throw out with the thoughts “I, after all, don’t wear it”, but after that it happens that I regret it very much (laughs). Therefore, I throw out too much of everything. Also the contents of the personal computer - doing the cleaning, I brought everything in order there, but I deleted everything down to very important things that I shouldn’t delete (laughs). I often throw away all unnecessary, leaving only the necessary minimum.

- Kimi no Na Wa (the film “Your name”)

Ruki:  I didn’t watch it. Is it by Ghibli? No? It seems that at the moment I’m completely unaware of anything (laughs). I don’t watch them, if there is a manga with drawings made by the technique of soft touch. Although I often go to the cinema, I look sideways at the one where are always a lot of people. In this movie theater the main film is “Your name”, so I immediately think something like “than to go there, I’d rather go to this one” (laughs). And in the future I’m also not going to press this button (with this movie) on the ticket machine.

- Love (the importance that love occupies in your life)

Ruki:  During puberty everything else except this (love) wasn’t important for me. But as I grew older, everything changed significantly, and if to tell frankly (laughs), I guess it’s because now I’m very busy with work. In high school, the band was just a hobby for me, so I wasn’t so passionate on this to really went into it with my head. Since I just approximated to the so-called ‘culture’, I guess that at that time, love in my life was quite significant.

- Moving (сonditions for moving)

Ruki: This is the layout of the house and what is in the neighborhood. As for the layout of the house, it will suit me even if the rooms are not very spacious, just to make the size fit so that I could live there. Since I recently said that I have few things, leaving only the minimum necessary, they should always be in my field of view.  As for the environment, then, most likely, I ask questions, are there any supermarkets and pet stores, is it easy to catch a taxi,  and whether it is convenient to get from this area to the city center.

as always thx for reading and sorry for mistakes ^^

With Needles Rebuild gaining hype and resale prices trending up, it’s about time I mention some smaller Japanese brands that do similar remake work but can be found for much lower prices, assuming you can even find them at all. There’s a lot of flavors of patchwork, from punk and crust inspired clothes to boro patchwork and unconventional stitching. I’ve collected as many as I could think of here, though I ignored some labels like Kapital and Remi Relief because they’re already pretty well known.

March 11, 1917 - Fall of Baghdad

Pictured - Maude enters the city of the caliphs.

The Allied war against the Turks had swung favorably. British and Imperial forced gained momentum at the beginning of 1917, overrunning Ottoman outposts near Gaza and then, in Mesopotamia, the ancient Persian capital of Ctesiphon. The ultimate objective of Britain’s Palestine campaign was Jerusalem, on March 11 they completed another historic victory to the east when Baghdad fell.

The last Turkish defenders, under Khalil Pasha, evacuated the city that day, ceding it to 45,000 triumphant British and Indian troops, who entered the city with General Maude riding at their head. German officers blew up the radio station before they left, although the British did capture six brand new airplanes, freshly delivered to the Turks.

The Imperial soldiers entering the ancient city received a bewildering reception: “Persians dressed like Joseph in long silken coats of many colours; red-fezzed oriental Jews in misfit European clothing; handsome Armenian refugees who had spent the night huddled in Christian churches, fearful of their fate if any of the fleeing Turks learned of their existence; lordly turbaned Muslims in black flowing robes - all turned out to cheer them as they tramped in through the Southern Gate. It was a gala display a fiesta - something that had not taken place when Townshend’s men had tottered painfully through the same streets.” Townshend’s forces had been captured at Kut the year before and led on a painful death march to Anatolia, where those who survived still languished.

Englishmen ignorant of history must have been astounded by the city, but others far off reckoned the symbolic value of their victory. “That’s the end of the German dream of domination in the Near East,” recorded British orientalist Gertrude Bell. “Their place is not going to be in the sun.”

No but this scene is not just a random coincidence. Cosima is a wearing traditional Eastern European clothes. To someone who grew up like Helena this is the height of beauty and elegance. Helena would have looked up to girls wearing these clothes the same way girls look up to supermodels and movie stars in our modern world. So this means a A LOT because despite the fact that Helena met a half dead and very sick Cosima to Helena she is still the most beautiful of her sisters

anonymous asked:

I HATE IT WHEN I WALK INTO TOPSHOP OR SMTH AND I SEE AN IE AND IT'S NAMED "peasant top" LIKE??? YALL KNOW THAT A HIGH QUALITY IE IS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE RIGHT? NO PEASANT COULD AFFORD THEM.

YEA and not to mention that they literally called our traditional clothes “peasant clothes” .. they just took a bunch of eastern european styles of traditional clothing, mixed them together and called them peasant clothes bye

I was browsing through photos I took exactly a year ago in the National History Museum (Sofia, Bulgaria) and decided to share a couple of them with costume enthusiasts on Tumblr. These are only a fraction of the folk outfits in the exhibit on the last floor and only women’s clothing (I have a couple of mens clothing photos too, but the quality of the pictures is worse).

So quicksilver-ink, you know how I said it would be interesting for me to draw JRPG characters with historical techniques? My hands slipped and I ended up drawing fanart of a game I’ve never even played.
