PSA to all YOI cosplayers

Hey guys! I know that you all may be very excited to be cosplaying Yuri and Yurio everyone (to be very honest I do not watch the show), and I’m excited for you!

HOWEVER

Please, take some tips from two former figure skaters, @auntienoiz and myself (not professional but on ice for more than 5 years) for when you want to put on those skates either at a con or at the rink.

  • At conventions, PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, DON’T WEAR REAL ICE SKATES. I know it may make your cosplay look authentic and really put the pieces together but ice skates were not meant to be worn for just walking around! If you’re not used to how they feel or they haven’t been broken in properly they WILL be painful and you could hurt yourself! Please limit the time you wear them! Without proper training and exposure to the boot, it’s very easy to roll or sprain your ankle while wearing an ice skate.
  • If you really want to wear ice skates at conventions, WEAR BLADE GUARDS! They’re cheap, and will save both your skates and the floor you’re walking on by keeping the blades from touching the ground! It also makes it easier to stand on by increasing the surface area you’ll be walking on. You do NOT want the fabric ones, they don’t protect floors. Get the ones with plastic bottoms which are adjustable (like the ones below) They come in multiple colors so you can get something neutral to compliment the costume. Guards can be found at MOST major sporting shops and any local establishment in your area that sells ice skates.
  • When going to the rink, DO NOT ATTEMPT THE SKILLS IN THE SHOW UNLESS YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE DOING THEM ON ICE. This one should be fairly obvious, but you could get really hurt attempting the skills (”tricks”). You will not learn how to do axels in two weeks, or the day of the shoot. It’s not possible, and you’re putting yourself in danger by attempting to do them.
  • Don’t be afraid to take skating lessons if you want to learn some skills! It’s a great hobby, but it’s not easily self-taught. Getting a proper coach or some lessons can teach you basic skating movement and balance you need to take nice pictures!
ay lmao

Repainting glasses frame with nail polish

When I got my Yuuri Katsuki glasses I was disappointed that it was so dark, and had parts in silver instead of blue. After some research, I attempted to repaint the frame with nail polish and it work \o/

Honestly, Destiel is already canon. And it has been a long time.

Just because they haven’t made out on camera, doesn’t mean that they don’t love each other enough to lay down their lives and go to the ends of the earth for each other.

Every relationship doesn’t have to be made official by a big kiss or announcement for it to be canon.

Just the fact that Castiel made Dean his mission, rescued him from hell, watched over him proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Dean considers Cas to be family, proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Castiel rebelled against heaven, gave up his place in heaven, fell, betrayed his brothers, became an outcast, risked his ass all for Dean, proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Dean, who is against praying with every fibre in his body, prayed to Cas every single night, proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Castiel would rather stay in purgatory and let Dean go alone just so the monsters would track Cas and not Dean, proves it canon.

Just the fact that Dean never listened and insisted on getting Cas out safely, proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Dean would rather have himself think it was his fault that Cas didn’t make it, than that Castiel didn’t want to come with him, proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Castiel always asks Dean how he’s doing even when he knows Dean’s going to lie to him, proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Dean could break through the mind control over Cas of Naomi, who manipulated every single angel, proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Dean said sincerely “I need you.” to Cas proves it’s canon.

Just the fact that Sam encourages Destiel, because all he wants is for his brother to be happy, proves it’s canon.


Just the fact that they love each other proves it’s canon.

Hints and tips for meth smokers!!

Loading

Not much to say here, other than… don’t load huge bowls. As by loading more you’re more likely to not spread it around enough and end up with a fat puddle boiling and burning up your drugs. Load a moderately small bowl, spread it around good, and smoke that shit son. If you get to the end of the bowl and don’t think you’re high enough, load another one.

Cutting

Anyways, first things first. “Cutting,” or at least that’s what I’ve always heard it refered to, and learned it that way. The act of melting down and allowing your meth to recrystalize all over in the bowl of the pipe. (While it is recrystalizing, roll that puddle around and spread it out. Do this inbetween hits also.) Supposedly ment to burn off cuts and impurities, however this is bullshit. Most cuts and practically all impurities melt right down and recrystalize in with the meth. Burning off while you smoke, and going into your lungs. Don’t worry, this stuff is good for you. It’ll grow some hair on your chest. Although “cutting” doesn’t burn off any impurities or cuts, it does allow you to make the bowl last longer. By spreading it around while it recrystalizes, you will in turn not heat it all at once and have more control over it. You’re less likely to burn up and destroy a bunch of meth smoking a thin puddle. Whereas trying to smoke a fat puddle will waste meth. Longer lasting bowls equal more smoke and more high.

There is one exception to this that I’ve found so far, which is… MSM. If you know what you’re doing, you CAN burn off most of it and be left with cleaner dope to smoke. You know sometimes when you take that first hit, and exhale barely any smoke? That was mostly MSM. Sadly though I have no clue how to explain the process through which you burn it off. But don’t loose hope now, because you CAN burn it off.

Lighters

Don’t use one of those fancy shmancy torch lighters unless you know what you’re doing. They burn too hot, and will destroy your drugs if you’re not careful. This is not good, you want to just vaporize them and suck them into your lungs. Not burn them up into nothing. A regular Bic lighter works best, with Crickets coming in second. But be forwarned, lighters get really fucking hot when you keep them lit for those long hits so common with meth. They will burn you and hurt you, possibly making you jerk or twitch… only to end up throwing a frail glass pipe accross the room. Be careful with lighters kids.

Needle Lighters
The point of the needle lighters is to force the gas(which has been turned way down) through the smaller hole of the needle, and lighting it up on top. Makes for a tinny tiny not so hot flame which is good for smokin’ dope. And having the needle somewhat long prevents the crappy plastic lighter(which most adjustable ones are) from melting itself and dying.

Heating and smoking

The flame of your lighter should never be touching the glass. If it’s close, it’s probably too close. Getting too close means you’re heating it too much, this destroys drugs. Not good. And it blackens up the pipe, which is a pain in the ass to clean and hard to see through.

Don’t apply constant heat, as this will also get it too hot and destroy drugs. Again, not a good thing. Heat it until it’s smoking good and pull flame away. When the smoke starts thinning, reapply flame until it’s smoking good again.

Roll it side to side slightly while heating to help prevent overheating one spot and destroying product. You just want a nice smoking puddle, not a boiling one.

When coming to the end of your hit, after you’ve stopped heating it and the smoke is again starting to thin. But you don’t have that much breath left to warrent reheating and getting it smoking good again. Carb it, or put your finger over the carb(hole on top of the bowl) to stop the airflow and allow more vapor to condense inside. Then once a little has condensed, release the carb and continue with the inhale. Not too fast, not too slow though. A slow tapping kind of action works best. Carb for a second, uncarb and inhale, carb for a second, uncarb and inhale, etc…

Before smoking the stem, remelt that shit down and let it recrystalize. Or if you have enough residue, melt it down and let it drip down into the bowl to recrystalize. While melting, plug the end of the stem with your finger to prevent vapor from escaping.

Hold the pipe with the end of the tube BEHIND your teeth. Although not the sole cause of tooth decay/loss, it sure as hell doesn’t help anything to be sucking those water hungry meth vapors past your chompers. Holding the pipe on your lips will most likely result in some cute little dried out dead spots, which will also show up on your tongue if you get that in the way. So don’t use your tongue as a valve to restrict airflow by plugging part of the tube. Yes it does slow down the hit, and allow for a bigger hit. But it fucks your tongue up pretty bad for a day or two.

Nice slow inhalation with micropuffing action seems to work best. Don’t pause and hold your hit whiling searching for another spot to smoke because you have a little breath left. Don’t hold your hit period. By the time you’re done taking those long ass hits, most of what you’re going to get out of the smoke has already been absorbed. Holding it longer may get you a little more out of it, but it’s doing way more damage to your lungs in the process.

Getting the most out of it

If you’re worried about wasting smoke, share it with a boyfriend/girlfriend via mouth to mouth action. It doesn’t have to take forever like a hit off the pipe. Quick and smooth works fine. Or, if you have no one to share with you could exhale into a ballon. And take a few more hits off it, inhaling and exhaling into the ballon. With breaths of fresh air inbetween hits of course.

Then if you’re a real stickler, you can save that balloon. Since it has all them little water droplets from your breath that have absorbed a little vapor. Or if you have nice dry breath, the balloon may have a coating of residue. Just like the stem of your pipe. Get that stuff wet, and put it in with your Kool Aid/Juice/Water, or just lick it if you’d like. Or I suppose you could try to scrape it and load another bowl…

Cleaning the pipe

So you’ve not been listening to me and burnt up some of your drugs smoking, and in the process blackened the fuck out of the bottom of your pipe. Good job dumby. Now you have a few options, you can either just not care and wipe it off your your shirt or pants. Or, you can have a semi-damp rag handy. Preferably warm or room temperature water. If you use cold water you run the risk of busting the pipe. Or you can learn how to smoke correctly and never deal with soot again.

Now for cleaning that brown/black residue left inside after you’ve gone through a sizable amount of meth. Again you have a few options.
You can either;

a) Throw your pipe away and make a new one.
Now if you know how to blow your own pipes option a is pretty damn easy, just blow a new one and sell the old one to another tweaker for $5.

b) Bust out the propane torch and burn it out.
If you have a propane torch, no acetone, and no knowledge on blowing pipes then option b is your best bet. But be forwarned, don’t heat your pipe too much because it will get soft and start to deform if you heat it too long. And don’t do this outside on a cool night, hot glass needs to be cooled slowly. Exposing it to the cold night air while it’s glowing hot will break it. Inside, preferably warm room.

c) Use a solvent like acetone and let it soak for a while, then rinse.
Just fill the bowl with a little acetone, let it soak for a while, empty and rinse. Repeat if neccessary. Do in a well ventilated area, not in the closet with the doors shut

HERES  a quick makeup tip: 

If your just starting out with makeup, I really recommend using cream eyeshadow sticks. Its super easy to blend and u literally can not mess it up. (I SWEAR I CAN WEAR EYESHADOW NOW BECAUSE OF THESE THINGS)

Anyways, what I really came here to tell you is that I’ll being doing TONS of head canons (etc) next week, SO SEND THEM ALL SO I CAN FLOOD MY BLOG WITH THEM OKAY??

Tweaker tip!! Flavored clouds.
So a friend of mine past her knowledge to me and I want to share this simple trick.
The reason for the picture is that inside the filter of those kind of cigarettes you can find a little essence ball, in my country lucky strike is the brand with the most variety of flavors.
You’ll have cut inside your filter to reach for the ball, take it out and put it inside your pipes stem and press it untill it pops, I recomend this BEFORE your dope’s in the bowl, so spread the liquid around the tube and try to cover like an inch from the tip to the bowl so it doesn’t gets hot. This wont affect your dope and flavors like cherry are worth it. Each ball will last depending on how intense you want to taste it.
Share your thoughts, improves or whatever you want to say fellow tweakers.
