i actually got it on tape

chulacabra  asked:

YO YOUR MIKU COSPLAY IS REALLY NICE? Does it actually glow or was that a photoshop technique? If it DOES do you have a tutorial on how you did the hairbands specifically? I wanna do a Yukari cosplay with the glowing mechanic but I'm not sure how to do the hair clasps

(answering publicly because i think this is potentially useful information!)

Yes, it does glow! As you can see, the hairbands, headphones, sleeves, skirt, and stockings all light up:

The part that lights up is called “EL tape” and it looks like this:

….and it’s powered by a battery supply that holds 2 AA battteries:

I got mine from Amazon, but I’m sure sites that sell electronics/lights/LEDs (like SparkFun or SuperBrightLEDs, perhaps?) might have them too.

The square-shaped hairband is made of craft foam (EVA foam– like, the sheets of colored foam that kids use for arts-and-crafts) with a groove in the middle for the EL tape. I put glue in the groove and pressed the EL tape into it so it stays there. I had to hide the battery pack inside the hairband though, so unfortunately they are kinda heavy (on top of my already-really-heavy wig…), but it also means their grip around my wig twintails is tight.

Yukari’s hairbands might be difficult to do with this method though, because of where they are attached doesn’t really leave room for a large battery supply. You might just have to use like pink reflective/neon tape or something.

♡15/09/17♡ - 🌿thursday 🌿

a busy week! i haven’t had the time to sit down and take good photos of my spreads, but i finally got a few shots in on wednesday morning!! my arts deadlines are coming up and it’s going to be a tough few days, but bangtan’s new comeback is still getting me hyped 。゚+.(・∀・)゚+.゚

this is the spread for the september hols!! wishing to go back to the time where i could wake up at ten in the morning rather than six (´ヘ`;)but at least i actually really like these two pages for once~

colour scheme: 🌿🌾🌿🌼

am i the only one that thinks the show did an amazing job?

i mean, i love the book a lot, don’t get me wrong but:

1) the fact that Clay is actually hurting so much to hear not only all this shit but Hannah’s voice and he’s taking so long to finish the tapes is actually AMAZING.

2) the fact that we get to see how he deals with all this long-term, how he feels, how he decides to act, how he, slowly, starts to lose his shit is actually AMAZING.

3) how we get everyone's​ pov, how we learn that, even though they did horrible things and may still not even regret it, they too have a life, issues, opinions, problems is actually AMAZING.

4) how we see how Hannah’s tapes reciprocate on the people that had listened to it, that had done the things they did is actually AMAZING.

the book is a GIFT, but i think the show is too, they made it into something incredible; they respected​ the book almost entirely and i just… i’m glad we got such an amazing show.

can i talk about alex standall for a second bc he was so important to me

alex wasn’t perfect. he took revenge on his ex girlfriend in the most awful way and i’m not excusing that.

but nobody saw how much he was hurting after he heard what it did to hannah. nobody noticed how he almost tried to drown himself in the pool, he wanted to play a suicide song with the school band and nobody tried to ask if he was doing okay, nobody cared that he took the “suicide isn’t an option” posters down, basically no one -even after hannah- noticed the REAL signs of someone actually wanting to commit suicide.

all everyone cared about was their damn self and what would happen to them when the tapes would come out. alex didn’t, he was the only one who understood hannah, owned up from the start to what was on his own tape and never got angry at hannah’s decision to take her own life.

alex standall deserved better.

When I was a kid in the late 90′s or early 00′s- whenever YuGiOh aired on KidsWB, I got a VHS tape in the mail, addressed to me, from “Pegasus”.

Which was wild. Cause if I remember correctly, Yugioh hadn’t actually aired yet- they were just showing trailers for this cool new show that they were about to show….

Anyway, on the tape, it had Pegasus on it, talking to me, hyping me up for the show I guess, and then telling me I’m invited to this website that was password protected, to keep people who weren’t invited out.

The password for this site was literally PEGASUS. Lmao.

Anyway that was absolutely bizarre to me, and I still have no idea to this day why I got this tape. I’ve never met anybody else who got it as well.

Despite the fact that Dean’s ankle is still tender and his ribs are still bruised, not even Sam can keep him from hobbling across the Bunker when he finds out Cas is washing the Impala. 

“The car was filthy, Sam! How’s he gonna know to hose her down before spreading all the crap and dirt on her and scratching her paint?!?”

“It’ll be fine, Dean—”

“Oh my god, Samantha, go braid your hair, I actually have no interest in seeing your face right now. Fuck off.”

Still, when Dean barges into the garage, nothing prepares him for what he sees. 

Cas has blasted the tape Dean gave him eons ago, opened the garage door and is bopping his head along to the music as he soaps up the hood of the Impala. The basketball shorts he’s wearing have been rolled up until his crotch, there are soap suds on his cheek, and his soaked shirt has been thrown across the side of his covered Thunderbird motorcycle. He’s got two day-old stubble and his muscle flex. He’s so so so kind to his Baby, mouth moving under the music like he’s talking to her while he’s washing.

“Hey, Cas!”

And Cas looks up like a deer in headlights, caught like a kid with his hand in a cookie jar, and his face turns cherry red and Dean can’t feel his chest and then he’s hobbling forward, determined until he reaches his sweet-dumb-ridiculous-no-longer-an-angel and kisses the freaking life out of him. 

When he pulls away, Castiel’s eyes are still closed and his brows are almost at his hairline. “…Am I in trouble?” Cas asks quietly. As they flutter open, Dean has the insane thought that he never wants to look away from the blue of those irises. 

Dean swallows and shakes his head in response to the question. He kisses him again.

Acting to mid-air is odd. There’s a perverse pleasure to it when you get it right, but often you don’t. Aliens are really hard. On the second one [Star Wars: Episode II] I was doing the scene with those tall ones - actually, I quite fancied the female one - and they’ve got actors there who will actually be providing the voices for the characters. They wore blue hard hats with cardboard cut-outs of heads taped on top of them. So you’ve got to remember not to talk to the people but to talk to the hats.

I got a few asks about this picture. Sorry, the lighting was very bad in the exhibition and this picture was small. I had to zoom in all the way as they taped off this area and we could not get close. There was a desk where I assume Mashima sat (or was a recreation), and there was a video recording of him actually drawing this (which was really cool). This is the best quality I could take. Hopefully the actual picture will be released sometime or someone else managed to take a better photo.

Surprise - you get a bonus Hiveswap developer interview today!

Hello there Hiveswap and Homestuck fans, Ash here! Now, I know what you’re thinking: “What madness is this? Ash said there’d only be *one* Hiveswap development team interview per week going forward! And he said they would be on WEDNESDAYS! This isn’t a Wednesday!”

Right you are, and that’s exactly why surprises are so much fun! Now, last week I mentioned that the next interviewee would be our superstar UI designer and all-around graphics guy Tauhid. Our interview with him will still be going live this week on Thursday, so definitely look forward to that, but today we’ve got another talented team member in the hot seat: Tom Hunt, our lead programmer and the prime coding whiz in charge of things on the technical side of things! Take it away, Tom!

Introduce yourself to the fans! What is your specific role on the Hiveswap team?

Hi, I’m Tom. I make stuff in Unity, which is a cross-platform 3D game engine and editor that can make all kinds of things - including the very 2D game you’re here to read about! My company neocade and I are working freelance on Hiveswap, with me as the lead programmer. Mostly, I direct and coordinate the team of programmers and quality assurance (QA) testers that are putting this game together. Sometimes I also write code.

When and how did you get your start on the Hiveswap project?

Sometime late last year, I was looking for a gig. At the time, What Pumpkin Games was looking for an additional Unity programmer. A mutual business contact introduced us via email, and we went from there.

Tell us a little bit about your career background! How did you get your start in programming? Do you have any advice for others looking to enter this field?

I’ve been programming computers since I was a little kid. I got my first actual programming job about a month after graduating high school, and did that for a bit during breaks while I was in college. It wasn’t very exciting, had nothing to do with video games, and didn’t pay a whole lot, but it sure beat taping up boxes of hot dogs in a factory all day.

The only advice I can really give to someone looking to enter the video games field is to just start making video games. Game development tools are more readily available now than they’ve ever been.

Also make lots of friends, especially with people who can draw or write or anything. If you live near a city, there is probably at least one game dev meetup somewhere - go to those and meet people. Get over whatever shyness you have, because almost every game that ever gets made is the result of a lot of teamwork.

We’re making a video game, so of course the question must be asked: what’s your favorite game of all time?

I played the heck out of Super Metroid back in the day. There’s something about that game. I would do speedruns of it - so now, every time I go back and play it, it all just feels so fluid. There’s a fairly robust set of inputs mapped out in a way that makes sense to my fingers. The entire game itself is fairly tightly bounded - a complete playthrough can take less than 90 minutes - so in a way, this beautifully detailed, explorable world is also actually kind of respectful of my time (more so than, say, a game like Skyrim, which is almost always a multi-hour/day/week commitment).

What games are you playing currently (if any)?

To be perfectly honest, I have not been playing NEARLY enough video games lately. That being said, aside from Hiveswap, I am currently into little mobile action puzzlers that I can play on the bus. Super Hexagon and Desert Golf are great. Just tried Polyforge this morning, too; that was pretty fun.

A lot of my friends are playing Breath of the Wild. I really want to just go get a Switch and play that, but I’m afraid of that eating up my time like Skyrim did.

Are there any games that you currently use or have used as inspiration for your own programming work here on Hiveswap, or just in general?

Not really - I tend to look at each technical problem on its own merits. The creative side of things is all handled by the What Pumpkin folks. I don’t really get involved with that too much. I just work to make sure their vision is implemented, however that needs to be done.

Imagine you’ve been given an unlimited budget and time frame to make your dream game. Tell us (briefly!) about that game in terms of genre, style, platforms, etc. Is it an original game or a long-desired sequel to an existing game? Go crazy!

Given an unlimited budget and time to work on a “dream game,” I’d have to go with some kind of deeply-simulated, massively multiplayer VR thing.

What’s your workstation like?

As a programmer, I like my workstations to be fast, reliable, and quiet. I always max out the RAM on a new machine if I can, because disk thrashing is just annoying as all hell. I’ve been really digging M.2 drives lately. Also, having extra monitors is always nice.

Do you like to listen to any particular kinds of music while you work? If so, tell us about it!

Mostly instrumental electronic music. Sometimes I’ll throw on some classical. Video game soundtracks are usually a pretty good bet. I can’t listen to anything with spoken words in it, though - too distracting.

Do you have a personal message you’d like to relay to all the Homestuck and Hiveswap fans out there?

Thank you all for being so patient with this project!

Thank you, Tom! Well folks, I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s surprise bonus interview, and remember to check back on Thursday for yet another behind-the-scenes peek into Hiveswap’s development! As I teased last week, our very own Tauhid Bondia will be on hand to talk about his indispensable (my word, not his!) graphics and user interface design work on Hiveswap. See you then, everyone!

BTS | The s/o Mumbles Another Member’s Name In Their Sleep But Not In A Sexual Way

Anonymous said:

How would bts react to s/o who mumbles another members name in her sleep but not in a sexy way. More like “ Goddammit gime me my candy back Tae!” “I think the golden cape and slippers are bit too much Jin.” Basically her dream life is weird and active. Sillier the better. Thanks and have fun! :D


Jin:
“Nicki Minaj called, she wants her ass back,” you mumbled causing Jin to look over at your sleeping form, “Of course those pants make your ass look big Tae, what did you think I meant?”

“That’s the last time she goes shopping with Taehyung…”

Yoongi turned in his desk chair and look at you, you still off in dream land. “I’m not even going to question this one….”

J-Hope/Hoseok:
“Namjoon…just duct tape it, no one will notice,” you said, before letting out a small snore.

Upon hearing this information Hoseok got up and began to search the dorm to see what you or Namjoon could’ve possibly broken (this time).

“Don’t tell me you can’t talk right now when you just called me, Hoseok…” you stated before rolling over with an aggrivated sigh.

Leaning over Namjoon looked at you to see you were still asleep, but had an irritated look on your face. “I don’t know if I want to know what happened.”

Jimin:
“No Jin…it wasn’t inappropriate for me to point a hairdryer at the other members and ask if they wanted a blow job, it was a legitimate question….”

“Excuse me?” Jimin questioned, seeing you still sound asleep. He would be more concerned if you weren’t a hairdresser, but he would have to talk to you about your word choices.

Tae turned and looked at you, still sleeping away. “Actually that’s quite genius.”

Jungkook: 
“Yes Yoongi…I think people would be concerned if I called in ‘dead’ for you instead of ‘sick’…”

Jungkook stopped and looked at you sleeping away on the couch. “I’m gonna go check on hyung…”

I think Dean actually made this tape when he was young and has been carrying it around with him for years. It’s super special to him because it has all his favorite Zeppelin songs and it’s the tape that has been played so much it’s nearly worn out. He and Sam have played that tape and sung along with Robert Plant on a thousand cross-country drives. And this tape probably got him through a whole lot of lonely drives after Sam went to Stanford. He knew that those songs were special to John and Mary and it’s become the soundtrack of Sam and Dean’s lives.

Under all of his tough guy bluster, Dean is a sentimental romantic. He wore the Samulet for years. He treats Baby like a living thing because it means family and home. He kept Castiel’s trenchcoat in his trunk for months after he died, even moving it from car to car. And his most treasured possession is a picture of his mother. Dean puts deep meaning into the few items he holds dear. 

So the fact that he wanted to gift this (and wouldn’t take it back) to Cas means so much. It means that Cas is family and that he wants to share with Cas something that is an integral part of who he is. For a man whose entire earthly possessions can fit in a car trunk and a duffel bag, to give something that you made yourself and kept with you for maybe decades to a friend is a truly special gift.

wow finally an original post!! it’s been a long time
actually i’m not in a good place right now with my studies.. art it’s a bit way too difficult for me, specially when i’ve never studied this 😫

in other news i got the two stabilo pastel highlighter that i lost during my last trip and a new mint (and super cute) washi tape

The evidence of why season 3 took so long to make is in episode 308!

The TV and shelf in the alien menagerie sequence is actually taken from the TV and shelf Doug Olsen and I had in our office. Dinosaur toy included!

I added it to the board and bugged the hell out of Jeffrey Thompson to make sure it got in.

Fun fact #2: That sheet taped to the door is for a semi-daily Street Fighter tournament we had started with the crew.

How great is your best pal from one to she actually robbed Tiger to get me everything I asked her for? My best pal is the bestest pal EVER

So in the first picture you can see the four (4) sets of amazing markers she got for me, and all the splendid washi tapes she managed to find!

I’m so excited to start using them for my notes and bujo, although I will probably need a new pencil case for them exclusively. That’s one downside of loving stationery, you eventually run out of space and it breaks your heart.

On Tuesday I am leaving for Amsterdam with some friends and could not be happier; I’ll hopefully find amazing shops and will come home with tons of things to help me start the new year in the best way!

Who wears short shorts?

Hello, Love bugs!

Dan X Reader

warnings- Smut, Swears.

May you please do one where the reader likes wearing short shorts around the house and dan and Phil think they’re teasing them? Smut at the end maybe? Thnx x x - Anon


It was finally spring and you were going to take full advantage. You had pulled out the shorts that you had to hide away for two seasons. You and the boys were going to hang out to enjoy the spring by going to get a coffee and then sit indoors with the windows open while doing some work. 

Walking to the boy’s door you couldn't help the smirk on your face. It was a beautiful day and you were about to spend it with two cuties. You and Phil had been friends forever. After he introduced you to Dan it was like he was like you had found your long lost friend. You swore the two of you were best friends in a past life.You called Phil to tell him to bring his ass downstairs.

“Moshi Moshi!” You shook your head even if he couldn’t see it he had a feeling you were giving him the look through the phone.

Mrs. Antilly, I’m sure Hillary is awesome, but -

No, if we’re gonna be great friends you should probably know my name is Hannah.

What did I call you?

Hillary.

And that’s not your name?

No. Hannah.

Well, crap. I already got your best friend necklace engraved with Hillary.

Are there any students named Hillary we can set up with Jennifer?

Jessica.

Right, sorry. Jezebel.

No problem, Harriet.

Oooh, can I actually get a Jezebel? She’d be an amazing friend.

EVERYTHING WRONG WITH “IM NOT ASHAMED”

okay so I’m late as fuck I know but earlier today I decided to sit my black ass down and watch “I’m not ashamed”. Yes, I am fully aware that the main purpose of that (dumbass) video was Rachel Scotts Journal (R.I.P). But I watched the moments that involved Eric and Dylan and here’s what I found wrong about this shit, so get fuckin’ ready

1) WHY THE FUCK YOU GOT “DYLAN” OUT HERE LOOKIN LIKE FUCKING MICHAEL CERA

NIGGA THE HAIR ISNT EVEN PARTED CORRECTLY THEY DONT EVEN FUCKING LOOK ALIKE, ILL TAKE THIS NIGGA ANY DAY OVER THAT AND HIS HAIR IS FUCKING BROWN AND LOOKS NOTHING LIKE DYLAN. (respect points goes towards Josh Young) 

2). WHY YALL GOT “ERIC” LOOKING LIKE A WHOLE ASS GROWN ASS MAN?!

OVER HERE LOOKING LIKE FUCKING ROD DYRDEK’S LESS SUCCESSFUL COUSIN. LIKE CMON NOW

FUCKING BEN JOHNSON IS MORE ATTRACTIVE AND LOOKS MORE LIKE ERIC THAN THAT BULLSHIT WHAT THE FUCK (respect points goes towards Ben Johnson, P.S ur cute)

3). WHY THE FUCK DO YOU HAVE “ERIC AND DYLAN” WEARING THEIR CUSTOM MADE “WRATH” AND “NATURAL SELECTION” T SHIRTS DAYS BEFORE THE SHOOTING??

YALL ARE FUCKING STUPID.

AND NIGGA WHAT TYPE OF HAT IS THAT THAT HE GOT ON. NIGGA AT LEAST GET A FUCKING SNAPBACK BRUH. BECAUSE I DONT KNOW WHAT THE FUCK THAT BENIHANA CHEF EMPLOYEE LOOKING ASS HAT IS THERE FOR. 

THE ONLY THING ACCURATE ABOUT THAT WHOLE FILM WAS THE FONT ON THE GOD DAMN T SHIRT, which was something zero hour couldnt achieve, and I bothered me the whole time I watch the 40 minute video

AND ZERO HOUR ACTUALLY PROVIDED ACCURATE INFORMATION. AND WHOLE ASS REAL ASS TAPES AND JOURNAL WRITES AND SHIT. THE ACTOR I IM NOT ASHAMED THAT PLAYED ERIC MENTION THEM BUT HE SOUNDED FUCKING RETARDED.

OKAY I THINK IM DONE BYE BYE
