even if this photo is shopped

clothes shopping online is so frustrating… You can read a review that says “I loved this dress! I wore it for a romantic evening in Peru and was told I was radiant and he PROPOSED” and then another review will say, “Looks nothing like the photo… Material was so thin a light breeze tore it to shreds and ruined my mother’s funeral. 3 stars.” And it’s like WHAT IS THE TRUTH AMAZON

The framed copy of Time Magazine was hung up in at least four of President Trump’s golf clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” the big headline said. Above the Time nameplate, there was another headline in all caps: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”

This cover — dated March 1, 2009 — looks like an impressive memento from Trump’s pre-presidential career. To club members eating lunch, or golfers waiting for a pro-shop purchase, it seemed to be a signal that Trump had always been a man who mattered. Even when he was just a reality-TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time.

But that wasn’t true.

The Time cover is a fake.

There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time Magazine. And there was no issue at all in 2009 that had Trump on the cover.

Cat Town, Japan.

Listen up, y’all. I’m about to tell you guys about the #1 cat lady destination in Japan: Yanaka.

Yanaka is a neighborhood in Taitō Ward, Tokyo. It’s a super traditional part of town filled with winding alleys, shrines and meticulously maintained temples. It’s a lovely place, but today we’re here to focus on the thing that makes Yanaka a magnet for nerds like me: good good kitties.

You see, Yanaka is a neighborhood with a butt-ton of stray cats. This makes sense, since it’s basically cat heaven. The streets and alleys of Yanaka are essentially just a series of hidey holes and ideal sunning spots that happen to have humans running around. Thankfully these humans are quite appreciative of their feline overlords, which is why part of Yanaka has essentially just become cat themed. It’s honestly like the neighborhood has just agreed that this is their thing now.

The first cat-themed establishment we visited in Yanaka was Nekoemon, a café with a scant 13 seats that’s covered in cat decor. The special thing about this place is that they offer a set (for roughly $15USD) that includes a cat-shaped cookie, a coffee drink of your choice and a little unfinished maneki neko figurine. Why the figurine? ‘Cause you’re about to customize yourself a neko, my friend.

The owner asked customers to choose between figurines to attract either luck or money. We picked luck and got our maneki neko along with a full assortment of markers. The owner even set out a few already painted figurines to provide inspiration.

Aside from the novel figurine offer, the café also had genuinely delicious lunch sets. They weren’t cat themed (though they had plenty of dessert options that were), but it was healthy and extremely tasty. I honestly recommend Nekoemon on all fronts. 

Here’s my finished maneki neko. Followers of the blog may recognize him.

Nekoemon is great, but it isn’t even at the center of the cat madness. No, for that we’re headed to the shopping area: Yanaka Ginza.

Even if you don’t care about cats (in which case I’ve got to ask… why did you read this far?) this street is lovely. There are shops for handcrafted items, souveniers, sweets, savory foods and a lot more.

If you aren’t all sugared up from Nekoemon, you can always stop by Yanaka Shippoya, a shop that sells cat tail donuts. The donuts are named as cats would be rather than for their flavors, and they’re honestly very nice. We had a sesame camembert one that was lovely and not too sweet.

Donuts not your bag? You can always satisfy your sweet tooth with some maneki neko shaped taiyaki from Maneki-ya. Fluffy outside, rich and creamy inside. We got the matcha custard and red bean flavor and it did not disappoint.

Okay, so you’ve had enough sugar to last you a lifetime. Know what has no calories? Cat accessories. Yanaka Ginza has a bunch of shops that specialize in just… cat stuff. Cat jewelry? Check. Cat kitchenware? Check. Cat bento? Check. Cat bags? Dear heavenly lord, check. There’s even a store that specializes in making custom cat stamps. Seriously.

That’s just one tiny corner of just one shop. We visited 3, but saw more. Most of the shops had signs asking visitors to refrain from taking photos, so we kept the camera packed away. Honestly, I get it. These are shops best explored in person. It’s fun to see how the owner of each shop has a unique aesthetic and stocks totally different items (though there is certainly some overlap). You can tell these stores are curated by cat lovers.

Oh, and of course we can’t forget the feline residents themselves. When we first hit the area we saw zero cats. None. I was honestly really disappointed, but it turns out they were all hiding from the rain that started shortly after. Those kitty instincts served them well and kept them dry, and once the rain passed we suddenly saw little cat faces poking out all over.

This sweet girl roamed the cemetery and was the first kitty we met.

Shortly after we met a pair of housecats that chirped at us quite enthusiastically.

This orange boy said goodbye to us just before we left the area. 

In conclusion: if you love fluffbutts and toe beans and are near Tokyo, get thee to Yanaka. It’s a fantastic weekend day trip that isn’t crowded to the brim with tourists, the whole neighborhood has a relaxed and peaceful vibe, and you can come home decked out in cat stuff and filled with sugar. What more could you even want?

I have a nibling who is not even two and has a model toy of the Endeavor space shuttle that he calls “my plane” when he plays with it. He loves it. And today we went to the California Science Center see the ACTUAL Endeavor space shuttle and I tell you what-

that kid lost his goddamn mind. It was the ACTUAL BEST. 

Cool fact about kids: they are small and dumb and they don’t know anything.

Like, for instance, their life experience gives them no reason to know that their toys are often based on actual things that exist.

It took him a while to realise the shuttle was even there because- protip about space shuttles: they are freaking huge. So like it didn’t even really register to him as an object? It was too big, it just seemed like the ceiling? But he saw the photos on the wall and he saw the gift shop and he was looking all around like “MY PLANE! MY PLANE!” because his toy “plane” was on every single thing. Models. Shirts. Mugs. Plushies. Books. This was a whole warehouse dedicated just to his plane, and that would have been amazing enough. Except, also, the actual life-size real has-been-to-space thing was there too. 

So eventually we got him to look up at the actual shuttle like, “yeah, look! There it is! It’s your plane, and it’s REALLY BIG” and when he finally took it in he literally screamed and I swear I thought for a second he was gonna die right there “IT’S BIG. MY PLANE MY PLANE MY PLANE” (looking at all the other people in the science center, pointing at a NASA space shuttle, shouting “MY PLANE!” like the actual proudest person in the world who just willed an entire spacecraft into existence).

Anyway I had a migraine for most of the day, but I’m still super glad I went out because it was totally worth it.

Shiro is being held prisoner by the Galra and made to fight as a gladiator. He’s already got his scar :’(.

This is a follow up to my realistic painting of Shiro at the Galaxy Garrison.

Burning need to paint realistic Shiro + a metric ton of reference photos (and used a stock image for the background) + Paint Shop Pro 9 + Wacom tablet + a week’s worth of evenings = now ready to throw something at whoever thought prisoners should wear Lycra and a crop top. I know it’s not perfect, but I give up. Too much Lycra. Not enough crop top reference photos.

anonymous asked:

Off the top of your head, are there 'phan' moments that are so significant they always make you smile and randomly spring into your head? For example, the viscosity discussion and the "you loved it, you wanna do it more" attack me when i'm doing work, and i'm equal parts elated and worried for my sanity because they take up such a large portion of my thoughts lol. I hope your move was good :)

omg sorry this took me so long to respond to but i didn’t even rly know where to begin bc there are so many??? i’m not sure if they’re ‘significant’ but this is just a short list of moments that jst keep me up at night from time to time bc they’re so Good: 

1. that time dnp did a joint live show on october 19, 2015 and not only acknowledged their friendaversary but also dan went on the world’s most Extra rant about phil’s enjoyment of pumpkin spice lattes when like, literally, no one asked or came for phil about that ,,, i often find dan’s repeated ‘get over it get over it get over it … you cynic … gEt oVeR iT’ stuck in my head in random moments. that’s also the live show where dan went on the world’s second most Extra rant about the walking dead and the Themes and the Complexity for like 3 whole mins and phil sat there imitating all of his wild gesticulation until he literally got so fed up that he stops and rolls his eyes and follows up dan’s review with the fucking iconic: “my review is, it was alright” 

2. phil’s tweet and photo of dan celebrating the release of the tatinof films bc i was so sure they’d be having some sort of party, a flipside party at least, but instead this pic confirmed they were celebrating this huge release in the most dan and phil way possible: just sat together in their lounge dressed in onesies and drinking rose :) 

3. the ridiculously cute time that dan confirmed in a liveshow that phil had come w him to wokingham in 2011 to celebrate his mum’s birthday 

4. in 2014 when dan broke his and phil’s filming camera and tweeted about it while phil was out and phil replied 'do you want me to buy a glue stick on the way home’ bc like, what the fuck. cute 

5. in the making of tabinof video when they’re talking about writing in a hotel room in orlando and dan’s handling the camera and phil is basically all up on him to get in frame and and dan’s in socks and it’s all v soft and cozy 

6. ‘your eyes are like three colors at the same time. that’s a trick question. your eyes are blue, green, and yellow.’ (x)

7. ‘i’m obsessed with your curl dan. how did that form?’ (x) .. and really all of the pastel edits video

8. dan going out of his way to add the clip of phil spanking his ass with the plushy snake at the very end of the pinof 6 bloopers even tho ,, no one asked or needed that and it was obvi in the original ,, like why 

9. the fact that when dnp went shopping for the suits they were gonna wear to the brits in 2015 phil just needed to take a spontaneous pic of dan in the shirt he ended up picking, obvi bc he felt a pressing need to commemorate the moment and he thought dan looked beautiful: 

(but rly tho, why did phil need a personal photo of the shirt dan was going to wear to the event, an event at which there would be like 500000 professional photos and videos taken … what a sap)

10. iom for phil’s birthday this year was so great and obviously so was the fam vacay and whatnot but it’s sometimes easy to forget how long dan has been a part of the family, and so i often think about phil tweeting out that he was celebrating his birthday with his family and dan at “the coolest thai restaurant ever” all the way back in 2012, complete with photo: 

they’ve just been a part of each others’ lives on such a deep level for so long it continuously boggles my mind <3

Queen Penny

Rewind the clock by a couple of decades and I was working as a team lead for an office supply store. This office supply store has a “copy center” where staff members would print, copy, and scan stuff for customers.

Enter “Penny”. Penny was a middle-aged woman who would come in every Friday smelling like wine, dressed somewhat elaborately, and who would make ridiculous demands on the copy center staff. Penny: crazy lady!

Penny’s weekly Friday afternoon visitations had been going on for a while before I ever became aware of her. She would come in with elaborate letters including photos, keepsakes, etc written to England’s Royal Family - various members from the Queen to Prince Charles to Fergie. She would make the copy staff photocopy the letters, demanding perfection to the point where she measured the margins to ensure the contents copied were in the exact center of the page. Then she would make the copy center staff package the letters and, when she did include something such as photos, inspect the packing to ensure the tape was perfectly even and pay the shipping to Buckingham Palace in London. She would frequently make the copy staff read the photocopied letters back to her. When they had initial refused to, she had called district management and complained so this request was honored whenever she asked.

My number one piece of life advice is to take pictures. Take pictures of everything. Take pictures of the sunset even though you have about twenty identical photos, take pictures of the sky if you think it looks nice, take pictures of your favourite people even if you never show them the photos, because in a few years you’ll be grateful to look back on them. Take pictures of the bird in your garden and the new flowers your neighbors planted in the street and take pictures of your coffee if you think it looks cute, because no one in the coffee shop actually cares, believe me. Take pictures of yourself when you like the way you look and also when you don’t, because there’s a beauty in them anyway. Take pictures on the days you know you don’t want to forget even if they’re blurry messes because you’ll smile at them regardless. Just take pictures, because one day your pictures will be all that’s left of this time in your life

“You look exhausted,” Daisy commented as you shrugged in response, adjusting the beanie on your head before bracing the cold weather waiting outside. Leaving the building, the both of you walked along the bustling streets of Manhattan, making your way to a nearby coffee shop. “Didn’t get enough sleep last night?”

Your eyes flickering over to your friend, you nodded your head. “Yeah…I just had a lot on my mind,” you remarked casually, trying not to let the events of last night pervade your thoughts once more.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT BTS’ LOVE YOURSELF SERIES:

If you’re new to the group, or just having a hard time keeping up with the lightning-speed pace of BTS’ latest project, below is a bit of what’s known about Love Yourself at this time.

‘Love Yourself’ is the fourth era of BTS’s career.

Since day one, the septet’s highlighted individual themes, beginning with the School trilogy, then transitioning into The Most Beautiful Moment in Life and, most recently, Wings series. Like the other concepts, Love Yourself is poised to represent its titular focus in an artistic way through both music and visual elements, though BTS’ reps have said that the posters are not directly part of “pre-promotion of BTS’ upcoming new albums.”

It’s part of an extended story.

The group’s been releasing similarly-themed videos and images since the release of “I Need You” back in 2015, kicking off The Most Beautiful Moment in Life series. While the School era emphasized the troubles and anxieties of school-age youth, the new concept began a whirlwind of releases that explored themes like love, friendship, loss, death, and more through thought-provoking, aesthetically pleasing video clips and images along with their albums. The group’s drawn inspiration from literature, including Herman Hesse’s Demian, and other sources, and worked with a variety of creatives on their projects.

Not only is it an ongoing element of their music and performances, but BTS’ members have regularly dropped hints for future releases in their everyday life, including at the BBMA’s in May when Rap Monster dropped a mention of “Love Yourself” in his acceptance speech on behalf of the group.

It began with some photos.

Beginning Aug. 10, BTS dropped thought-provoking posters that showed the members in a variety of scenes to announce Love Yourself, beginning with Jungkook sitting in a wheelchair and ending with Jin holding a bouquet (see below). A second set of images paired members together in contrasting light and dark photos before again ending with Jin as a solo. All the posters contained phrases written on them that reflect on ended relationships and time. One released on Aug. 12 featuring Rap Monster and V included the ambigram “I’m Fine” that could be read upside down as “Save Me,” recalling a suicide prevention ad campaign in Singapore in 2013.

There’s been a ‘Most Beautiful Moment In Life’ throwback.

Following the images, BTS’ company BigHit Entertainment shared a note on social media titled “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life The Notes,” connecting Love Yourself with the earlier era. Credited to Jin, a memo dated “13 June Year 22” told a narrative of the members fighting and going separate ways, before dramatically ending on a cliffhanger revealing that Jungkook was in a car accident.

There have been videos, and there will be more.

Since Aug. 15, BTS has released three highlight reels that show the seven members of the group in a variety of situations interacting with women and one another and are narrated by BTS reflecting on time’s passage, the beauty of life, and impactful moments in life. What it means for BTS and the Love Yourselfseries overall is still unknown, but BTS’ company has already revealed via press release that the plot of the entire Love Yourself project is contained in the first highlight reel.

Each of the videos released so far are subtitled with a single Chinese character that makes up the phrase 起承轉結, or 기승전결 in Korean. The term is used to describe the four steps of storytelling composition: introduction, development, turn, and conclusion. Each video released so far has aligned with one of those elements, with today’s 轉 clip advancing the plot lines dramatically, showing shots of the BTS members racing through the streets of Seoul, collapsing on their feet, washing blood off their hands, and other similarly intense moments.

Smeraldo is a hot topic.

The Italian word for “emerald” captured the attention of ARMYs around the world after Jin shared a photo on Aug. 9 holding a bouquet of blue flowers tinged with red and white with the title “smeraldo.” Fans quickly discovered an Instagram account dedicated to a flower shop selling the flowers, despite the fact that no such flower exists.

The smeraldo flowers have since reappeared in the imagery of BTS Love Yourself teasers photos and videos, but the group has yet to reveal the importance and what it has to do with their upcoming September release.

A lot Is still unknown.

Love Yourself is a new element that will last into 2018, but BTS has yet to reveal much more than that–not even it’s direct relation to their new albums.

  • she’s already starting the first grade and wonho literally threw a party for her and invited everyone and their grandmothers and cried when he realized at the end of it that his lil sunflower was going to SCHOOL and he wouldn’t be able to see her for half the day
  • and kihyun had to hold like three boxes of napkins on his lap while wonho mumbled about how she’s his life,,,,his angel,,,,his sTARS AND UNiVERSE
  • and hyungwon was like bro it’s school she’s going to have fun and make friends
  • and wonho is like but sHES MINE,,,,she’s my babY,,,, and everyone was like oh no here he goes again 
  • minhyuk somewhere: can you imagine how bad he’s going to be when she goes off to college????
  • wonho: dONT EVEN SAY THAT WORD AROUND ME 
  • but yes,,,wonho has never in his life been upset with her,,,,he coddles and loves her more than anything in the world
  • and it’s amazing you see him out grocery shopping making faces and singing to her while she sits in the cart and like every single parent in town is super heart eyes at wonho because like,,,,,,,look at him
  • but wonho only cares about his kid,,,,,,,,,,like that’s it,,,,,,,,she’s the only one that matters
  • and you,,,,,,,think it’s pretty cute because you work with wonho and his enTIRE desk is covered in photos of his daughter
  • but,,,you don’t have a kid of your own and when the office decides to honor ‘bring your kid to work day’ you’re kind of,,,,,,,,,stuck
  • and you can’t believe it but as the office bustles with the noise of children and worried parents
  • you walk in,,,,,,,,,,,,,,holding your cat
  • and your co-workers laugh because aH your cat is your kid??? and you’re like “kinda??? i mean she’s cute,,,,but she’s not as fun????” 
  • and your cat is lazily resting on your desk,,,,completely oblivious to the fact that you’re sTRESSED your boss might be mad about you brining a pet and not a person
  • but then you notice,,,,a small hand
  • and that hand is rubbing your kitty’s belly and you’re like,,,,wait
  • pushing your chair out a bit you see a small girl on her tippy-toes,,,reaching out to play with the fur of your cat
  • and usually,,,your cat is ok with all things BUT belly rubs
  • yet this small hand doesn’t bother her at all
  • and you’re like “hi!! whats your name?” the girl mumbles it,,,obviously more interested in your cat than you
  • and you’re looking around to see if any co-workers that her parents are nearby but everyone looks preoccupied with their children
  • and you’re like “whose your mommy or daddy?” 
  • sniffling she makes a motion to the desk opposite yours,,,,you blink and look at her again and realize she’s wonhos,,,,,,,,,,,,,all those pictures of her on his desk should have given that away pretty easily
  • and you’re like “do you wanna pet the kitty’s head too - she likes that the most?” 
  • eagerly nodding you pat your lap and the girl climbs up and sits comfortably,,hands going out to play with your snoozing cats ears 
  • a couple of minutes later,,,as you’re using one hand to type and the other to keep the girl safe in your lap wonho comes back holding a plate with cookies and other kids snacks
  • smiling he finds you with his daughter and he’s like “there she is- should have known she’d go for the cat.” 
  • you laugh and go “if i were her, i would also go for the cat.” 
  • wonho pulls up a chair and tries to get his daughter to take a bite of the cookie,,,but she’s still lost in petting your cat
  • and wonho pouts and goes “she’s given up her father for your pet,,,” you grin and shake your head 
  • for a while you two sit like that,,,, wonho’s daughter looks like she’s yours with how happy she looks in your lap
  • at some point even leaning back against your arms and watching you finish something on the computer
  • wonho,,,,cautiously watches but at the same time,,,,,feels perfectly at ease with his daughter in your hands
  • and every now and then you chat about this or that
  • and suddenly wonho asks,,,,,,,would you ever want kids?
  • you hesitate but nod,,,,you make a joke about how the cat is great and all but kids are cuter,,,,,in your opinion
  • not seeing the small smile on wonho’s face you go back to your work as his daughter slowly falls asleep
  • by the time the work day is over,,,she’s been napping for a good hour and your arm is numb from where you’re holding her but you’re content as ever
  • and wonho wakes her up gently only to hoist her into his arms so she  can sleep again
  • you,,,,well you take your cat in your arms and as you and wonho are leaving the building
  • he stops and asks if you’d ever like to come over sometime and play with his daughter again
  • you grin and motion to the cat in your arms and you’re like “im assuming she’d want me to show up with this one as well?”
  • wonho laughs and you feel your heart skip a beat,,,,because it’s a laugh that’s so,,,,,,,,,,,,sweet
  • he agrees but before fishing his phone out of his pocket for your number he adds
  • “im not just asking you for the cat, my daughter would love to see her again but i,,,,,,,,,,id like to spend more time with you too.”
  • the words make your knees melt and you’re worried you might be blushing like some middleschooler that you hide your head by looking down
  • but when you exchange numbers, wonho waving as he turns to leave with his daughter
  • you can’t help but lift your cat up,,,,her lazily opening her eyes to watch you and you go “i,,,,,,,,think you got me a date!”
  • all you get is a meow in reply,,,,,,,but,,,,,,you’re too happy to care hehe 

I’m happy.

I get paid to travel the world. My job is perfect. I meet people from all walks of life and every day is a new learning perspective.

I’m happy.

I can buy the things that I want. I shop without looking at the tagged price.


I’m happy.

I have the sweetest dog. He has just learned a lot of new tricks. He gets excited whenever I come home and gets sad when I leave.

I’m happy.

I have great friends. They’re always there for me. We go out all the time. We love each other genuinely.

I’m happy.

I have a loving and supportive family. We sometimes fight, but at the end of the day I know they have my back and I got theirs.

I’m happy.

I watch movies alone. I don’t have someone to explain how the movies go. I don’t have someone to share popcorn with. I don’t have someone to argue with when choosing the movies.

I’m happy.

I eat at restaurants alone. I see the stolen glances as I tell the waiter I’ll be only needing a table for one. I shrug it off.

I’m happy.

I walk alone and see a crowd of mediocre people as I would like to condescendingly call them- the couples wearing couple shirts, the families who are just window shopping, teenagers still wearing their school uniform. They seem to enjoy themselves but I know they are not happy. They don’t have what I have.

I’m happy.

I see photos of families eating at a local fast food store and I wonder why do they even post it on social media. There’s nothing special in that place. They smile at each other and put a caption about how much they love each other. I don’t hit the like button.

I’m happy.

I paint. I read. I write. I try to cook. I have lots of hobbies to keep me busy. People tell me that I must be so happy doing these things. I never tell them I could only paint when I’m sad.

I’m happy.

I know that the girlfriend of the first boy I loved controls what he posts on social media. My bestfriend tells me she’s controlling and crazy. I tell her maybe he’s not really happy. Maybe, he’s just settling.

I’m happy.

I stalk the girlfriend of the guy I had an affair with and tell myself that I am way better than her- that he should have chosen me. My bestfriend and I look at her photos and insult her. We laugh our asses off. I smile.

I’m happy.

I remove all my make up. I lay down in my bed. I stare at the ceiling for a few minutes before I pray. I thank God for all my blessings and still ask Him for more.

I’m happy.

But why do every night before I finally go to sleep, this statement turns into a question? Am I happy? I tell myself that I have all the reasons to be. But it doesn’t answer my question.

I wonder who I am convincing, the world or myself.

I’m happy.

Beautiful bookstores from around the world:

The bookstore El Péndulo started off as a combination coffee shop and bookstore in 1992—today, with six branches in total, it is one of the most important cultural centers in Latin America. It even has a bar inside named after Bukowski. Oh, and there’s nothing quite like that sleek curved staircase for a glamorous, book-filled entry down to the main floor. Photo by @danielae


Istanbul might not be the first to come to mind when you think of cities with unique bookstores, but it sure is now. FiLBooks describes itself as “a space dedicated to photo books, artist talks and workshops in Karaköy.” I mean, swings in a bookstore? Are you kidding me? Amazing. Photo by @sezgiolgac


With our headquarters in San Francisco, we’re honored to live in a city that is home to a bookstore so heavily steeped in literary and Beat Generation history—City Lights Bookstore. As the first all-paperback bookshop in the United States and publisher to Allen Ginsberg’s Howl, the store mantra couldn’t be more fit: “A literary meeting place since 1953.” Photo by @cestchristine


Just as we’re suckers for a hand-painted storefront, we’re equally suckers for bright neon signage; something about neon gas pumping through the word “Books” in cursive has us swooning. The amazing display of books stacked in a never-ending tier doesn’t hurt, either. Photo by @chloeferres


See the rest on our blog!

I feel pretty confident in saying that if Vetra is romanceable at all, she’s gonna be a romance option for fem Ryder.

And the reason I feel comfortable saying this is because of Bioware’s track record with romances, especially in Mass effect. Let’s quickly compare all of male Shepard’s love interests with Fem Shep’s.

Everyone Femshep can do the do with (excluding minor characters like Kelly chambers and Diana Allers):

(The bottom three you can have flings with in the citadel DLC)

And all of Male Shep’s love interests (with the same exclusions):

And I feel it should be noted that Tali’s Canon appearance under her mask is this:

So.

What’s the most obvious difference between the two lineups?

(besides gender ratios of course)

The difference is that fem Shep has three bizzarre looking aliens in her romantic gallery whereas male Shep’s options are all very very human looking.  

With fem shep you can romantically pursue Garruss (s seven foot tall chicken dinosaur), Thane Krios (an, albeit sexy, frogman), and Javik (a four eyed… lizard man?).

The most alien you can get with male Shep’s options is Tali with her full body suit, but even then at the last second they revealed that underneath all that she really just looks like a slightly photoshopped human with luscious locks (which is what she is. Seriously. It’s a ‘shopped stock photo. I’m so mad). 

The reason for this difference (I think) is that there’s this belief, at least among most big-name media creators, that women care less about the physical appearance of their romantic interests then men do.
 How true this statement is is up to personal opinion I suppose, but it’s reflected in the options given to us by the game designers. They’re not going to put time and money into coding a full romance route they don’t think players are going to pursue, and they don’t think many male players are going to pursue a romance with anyone that doesn’t look at least mostly like a sexy human. 

Now let’s take a look at our lady Vetra:

She looks kickass, she looks awesome, she looks like the love of all our lives, but she very much does not look human. She’s seven feet tall, has a spiky bone plated face, and where are her bobbies??????

So here’s how Bioware is thinking about it: if we give players the chance to romance her, what demographic of players is more likely to pursue that romance? Women, obvi. 

Do I think that’s fair? No. Do I think male Ryder should be given weird alien love interests to smooch? Yes. And I really hope they do this game. 

But if they make Vetra a romance option, which i think they’re likely to do based on what they’ve been teasing, then I am certain that she is going to be an option for fem Ryder at the very least, if not both.
