Some photos of my kenku costume at Anthrocon 2016, taken by @adammillerstudio! Oh boy did I ever have a lot of fun! The other raven in these photos is @qawstume and the snowy owl we are mobbing is @crystumes, who made both of the blanks that we used for our masks.
My favorite part about this kiss is how intense Dylan/Stiles’ face is. He’s kissing her like she’s his lifeline, the air he breathes. He’s so consumed in this moment, in this kiss, in Lydia. You can feel how much he loves her and how much this moment means to him. This is everything Stiles has spent the past 10 years building up to, and the intensity with which he kisses Lydia is like none I’ve ever seen. Lydia holds onto to Stiles, kissing him back just as forcefully, and we get this incredible moment that seems to stop time. I just can’t get over how much you can tell that this is quite possibly the most important day of Stiles’ life just by the expression he makes when kissing Lydia. It’s gentle and intense and heartbreaking all at the same time. You can feel the gentleness he possesses for Lydia, but it’s also this intense fire that burns hot enough to consume them both. It’s so amazing that these two completely opposite things can exist simultaneously in just one expression. Dylan never ceases to amaze me with how much he understands Stiles as a character and his unconditional love for Lydia.
“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.” -Oscar Wilde
To enhance self-love/self-confidence, and just spoil yourself :)
What you need:
Pink Himalayan Salt- Self-love
Lavender Buds/Oil- Love, Happiness
Rose Petals/Oil- Self- love
Myrrh Incense- Self-love
Rosemary- Purification/ Self-Love
Vanilla oil- Love/Self-Love
Pink Spell Bag
4 Rose Quarts pieces/points
4 Pink Candles
(Optional) Pink or Rose Scented Bath Bomb/Bubblebath
What to do:
Add Lavender buds, rose petals, thyme, and rosemary to a pot of boiling water and boil for about 3-4 minutes, until you get a tea. Strain the herbs from the tea, and draw your bath while it cools, adding the pink himalayan salt to desolve.
Put a rose quarts point in each corner of the tub with a pink candle. If you used oils and not hers, add them to your bath now, along with your bath bomb or bubblebath. If you made the tea, add it to the tub once it’s filled. Light your incense, pick some music that makes you feel relaxed and beautiful, and enjoy your bath.
Think of the things you do not like about yourself, and find something beautiful about it. For example, if you can’t stand the color of your eyes, list all the things you find beautiful about that color and compare it to your eyes. Do this for at least 6 features/personality traits.
When you are finished, drain the tub and remain in the water until it is completely drained, visualizing all the negative thoughts, insecurities, and self-doubt being sucked out of you and down the drain with the water. Visualize a light pink light glowing from within, replacing all of the departing negative views/emotions with love, confidence, kindness, and self-appreciation.
And there you have it. I like to add some coconut oil to my bath for a little extra love boost and it makes my skin feel amazing.
So around a month ago i asked @blackwolfartz if i could color this sketch so i could train myself with coloring.And she kindly accepted. (And it has been sitting in my draft ever since.)
So thanks again to Wolf for being so awesome and letting me butcher her work and post, it was really interesting and fun and i’d redo it anytime!
