i just saw these photos and knew i had to make a photoset

7

Last weekend I attended Anthrocon and it was pretty darn awesome. While I don’t consider myself a furry, I do enjoy realistic costumes, so I took the raptor mask I made (base/blank by: http://kierstinlapatka.tumblr.com/ ) and some gloves I put together. I ran out of time to make a tail. I figured I’d raptor around the con incognito, because it’s fun to be anonymous. Unfortunately for my planned secrecy, I was unaware that in the interim my last photoset of the raptor mask managed to accumulate around 3,000 notes on Tumblr, and the internet knew that it was mine, so there was no secrecy or anonymity. OH WELL I had fun anyhow! Let me tell you though, it’s super weird to have people come up and shout “I SAW THIS ON TUMBLR” in real life. Uhhh. Hi, Internets.

Thus, I raptored around the con and generally acted like a nuisance. The very best reactions were the ‘muggles’… people on the street. They acted like it was Disneyworld and almost everyone really loved it. My friend managed to get a photo of me peeking into a bar window. Check out the enthusiastic lady on the far right.

I even managed to bump into my eagle mask being worn around the con a few times, which was super exciting to me (the Philippines Eagle mask seen above).

All photo credit goes to my friends Byzil and Hypno.

Here is a short video. I didn’t know she was recording at first so I was holding very still so she could take a still photo. Oops. Also ignore my bad anatomy raptor wrists pose. I had just smacked Dark Natasha in the throat with my claws accidentally and was feeling a bit sheepish. (Natasha was fine, but apparently I was going for the kill. Instincts?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJLdFoQOSOg

I am thinking of naming her Kinglet, after the bird that inspired her.

Outfit Spotting in ‘Girl Meets Demolition’

I don’t really know what possessed me to do this, but I got caught up trying to see how many of the season 1 outfits I could recognize in Girl Meets Demolition. Figured I might as well make a post about it.

I’ve really come to enjoy the fashion on the show, so this was fun for me.

anonymous asked:

How is it that you get so many notes and followers,any advice?

Before you get a lot of people following you etc you want to make sure you have a clean theme, i see too many people with brightly colored backgrounds or poor default themes that just don’t do them any justice.

You generally want a 2 columned theme with a white background, it’s generally the most easy on the eye, hence why people are more likely to look at your stuff - and more importantly stay there. 

You need to make sure your posts aren’t bad. What i mean by that is, you don’t want to have (in my experience at least) really long photoset photos - as this takes up a large space on your blog. Try and generally keep to 1 sort of look or idea, i see alot of popular nature/vintage/cars/girls and whatever, you don’t have to do that though. I just do all verticals in general - but i remember when i started out i had specific blog theme like 4 different times, swapping from horizontal pictures only, to luxury pictures only and so on. I would recommend trying to get a URL that is just 1 word, for example - cool, teenager, pizza etc. These are hard to obtain as most words have already been taken, but if you can snag one it’s probably going to make you stand out way more than if you’re called only-the-hipster-babes or cars-and-bitchesyolo3. I remember one guy i once knew with around 50,000 followers once told me that the way he would find knew people was to simply look at all the URL names of the people who reblogged from him and he would only check out the people with the best/coolest names - so i would say having something slick is going to make you stand out.You could consider a name with alliteration as that works too e.g. Jamjars, sinkingsouls, which you probably know makes things become emphasized if you paid attention in English class. 

I remember when i started out that one of the things i did was message every single blog that was considered ‘big’ at the time, pretty much anyone who had over 30,000 followers, i asked them to check my blog out. Some people completely ignored me but maybe half or so ended up liking what they saw when they gave me a chance and followed, so that really helped alot. As a later result of that, me and one of the guys who now has over 200,000 followers - you can check his blog here - set up a clothing line together - which you can check out here - and made it decently successful given that we could show our photos to almost 500,000 people. The point i’m making is that by trying to put yourself out there and keeping your blog clean/pleasing to the eye - you stand a better chance of meeting similar/like minded people, getting followers and consequentially getting those notes. 

I hope this helps! I’m going to tag this as 'me’ so that anyone who is interested in following these tips can show them to their friends on my 'me’ section, or you can just provide them with this reblog link.

There was something puzzling yet enchanting about admiring him from afar. He made people feel like they knew him, but still kept parts of him to himself. Sometimes, if you got lucky, he would strip himself of his being and parade himself completely to those he cared about the most, almost as if he was reserving those little parts of himself to thank them for being in his life. And of course, they all accepted it because he was a gem and knowing even the smallest detail about his day was something to treasure deeply.

Every single day for the past four years, I observed him closely and watched his every move the best that I could. I had been led to believe that he was perfect, but I also knew that was impossible, so I kept my eyes open to his flaws and neither held them against him nor did I brush them off. But mistakes were rather seldom when it came to him because he carried himself well, and although my heart ached at the thought of him, I also wished he would somehow mess up just to prove to me he was just as human as I was and everyone else.

There was something dangerous in falling in love with someone you know vaguely. No matter how much I wanted to love him completely for who he was, because I only saw parts of him, that was what I fell in love with. I didn’t want to admit it, but there was a tugging bit at the back of my head that sometimes told me I fell in love with the idea of him instead of him as a person. It was absurd to think about, because I was rightfully convinced that I knew him and I could read and understand him better than he could do so himself, but that was what my thoughts fed me.

I knew my intentions were genuine because I never demanded anything from him in return. All I wanted was to absorb every fiber of his being, may it be that he let me or not, and that he continue to be himself.

So now, four years later, I am still here hurting at the thought of him. It was ridiculous, wasn’t it, how someone who is your main source of happiness can have so much control over you that they can also make you feel sadness and pain with their mere existence.

But then it always goes back to one thought, and then everything would be okay again. I was just glad to know that someone like him existed in this world that never really deserved his presence in the first place.

This turned out into a report from jibcon whoops

Wow, this is depressing. Being back is depressing. Looking at all the new photosets is depressing. People being upset is depressing.

(edit: I didn’t mean to write a report from jibcon but it happened. This is what I experienced with Misha and the destiel stuff and maybe someone saw on twitter anyway so yeah k bye)

Loki’s got a girlfriend – NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO

Tom Hiddleston had a date to the Oliviers. It looked serious.

Lucky bitch!

Who’s the cow with Tom Hiddleston?

Aw! She’s cute. I hope he’s happy.

I think that’s Abigail Morgan. She did a play with Tom a few years ago. I think with Ben, too.

She looks familiar. Who is she?

Tom Hiddleston brought a date, about freaking time.

She looks a right mess. What is he thinking?

Is that Tom Hiddleston’s girlfriend?

This is gonna be a long post, but I’m in the mood to share tonight! 

This was the first gif ever I saw of Outlander (credit for the gif above goes to http://outlander-starz.tumblr.com). It was on my facebook wall, shared by a friend of mine, sitting there trying to get my attention. And it caught my eye the line this handsome guy was saying. Will it be worthy to watch it? I asked myself. It was this past winter, I can’t recall the month but I knew something about the series cause a friend of mine made me buy the first book in the series as a gift  to a mutual friend. “They did a tv show as well” she said, “it’s pretty cool and it’s going strong.” So, being the curious woman I am, I digged the story on the internet, read the plot and decided to download the ebook. First the book, then the tv show (if the book is good enough), I though. I didn’t dig for the actors, or the producers or the likes, I just throw myself into the reading curious about the fact that “this” Claire was travelling back to the past, and she had two (God, TWO!) husbands. I started reading, and I fell in love with Jamie when he covered Claire with his plaid while riding his horse with her sitting between his thighs, and my love grew stronger when he handed her the flask so she wouldn’t feel the emptiness of her stomach and the hunger. My God, I thought, I need to see how they rendered this on tv, NOW. I’ve never been a fan of red haired man (or women, in general) nor of kilted man, but HOLY HELL “this” Sam Heughan can rock a kilt and reddish locks like no one else, and “this” Caitriona Balfe has some pull and emanates this strength and independence vibe and smartness like very few - or none - other female characters. That was the moment when I was officially scre*ed. I was irremediably drawn into this vortex of feelings and anticipation like I haven’t been in many years. And then I googled the actors. And I started searching for events photos and interview and everything tagged sam + cait, feeling almost stupid for liking them so much and melting at their looks to one another and all the touchy thing and telling to myself “no way these two are just co-workers or just friends. Just NO F-ing WAY”. Until I’ve come back to Tumblr (last I have been here was when True Blood was still airing!), and I searched for blogs and photoset and gifset and I’ve found out I wasn’t alone in this and that probably I was right, these two had so much more going on than just friendship! And I landed on Pufflander and Jess blogs and never left and I am happy for that. It’s true, we don’t know the truth about what is really going on with Sam and Cait life, but it’s so good to let all the feels flow when they banter on twitter or when a new gifset comes out or new pictures of events or interviews are out. I have eyes, I have my opinions, and I have an amazing group of people from all around the world that  I follow and share the same feelings. And it’s so good that even if this ship will not go where we all want her to go, it’ll be worthy all the same, just because of all the witty, nice, funny, crazy shippers I’m travelling along with! So thank you for making me laugh even when life is a bitch, or when things are dull. Now, let’s go back to shipping like crazies! xoxo

Brand-Spankin’-New PHOTOSET and Review: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators at Rams Head Live!, Baltimore, May 13th, 2015 [x]


WARNING: This is definitely a biased review, but all fan points are backed with evidence. You’ve been warned…

“I saw Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators headline at Rams Head Live! on Wednesday, May 13th, 2015.” Three years ago, I never thought I’d want to say that about Slash, and I had no clue who Myles Kennedy or any of his “conspirators” were. Then I heard “You’re a Lie” (the lead single off of Slash’s second solo album Apocalyptic Love, which was also his first with Myles & the Conspirators). Amazing how listening to terrestrial rock radio on a random trip in the car can broaden your musical horizons in totally unexpected ways, even in this era of streaming music and social media blah-blah-blah. Good music is good music.
