Fantasy World in Real Places

Artist Omer Agam, aka Omerika manipulates pictures by adding a dose of fairy and fantasy. In her collection entitled Whismical, she stages characters and object by miniaturizing them of by incorporating touches of supernatural. A lovely travel in a dreamlike and enchanted world, that could remind everyone who would going there, in his old dreams.

In addition to the fashion post i feel it’s worth remembering that at least fashion still gives you the choice and you can absolutely get that warrior style if you want to and know where to look (designers listed in captions)

Not only does the fashion industry design better lingerie, they also design better warrior ensembles.

What’s really interesting is that clothing design is generally excluded from copyright actually has promoted a lot of innovation and creativity in the fashion industry.  Designers actually work to create and overcome challenges in their striving to be exciting and unique.

Contrast with the Empowered Woman design business, which churns out tons of nearly identical characters in similar variations of fantasy lingerie and lady villains in even skimpier attire.

Think of how awesome studios got to focus on creating cool and memorable designs instead of trying to outdo one another for finding convoluted ways to show off skin without getting a Nudity rating.

I’m not sure why everyone is out to save Harry’s image for him when I’m pretty sure Harry knows exactly what he’s doing by allowing himself to be separated from the band for a little while.

You’re allowed to feel upset about it, but it’s fairly obvious that the separation of Harry isn’t to tone down his image, necessarily, but to up the other boys’ images to come close to Harry’s. Harry has been the frontman of this band for five years - this is not debatable, look at their twitter followers, look at google trends, he is much more well known than the other three. 

Before OT4 can be established as a band, they have to change the way they promote the band. And that means placing emphasis on the other three and yes, taking the spotlight away from Harry, who is constantly the center of attention.  There is concrete evidence of this - Harry does literally anything and it overshadows headlines about the other three.  (For example, when the babygate scandal broke, you know how the media kept people talking?  BY MAKING IT ABOUT HARRY, who has ten times the name recognition that Louis has.  Larry aside, that should tell you all you need to know.)

So you’re allowed to feel frustrated or confused or upset but please stop acting like Harry is somehow a victim and that he doesn’t know exactly what they’re doing by promoting the band in this way.  I’m sure all four of the boys know what they’re doing.  I agree that it isn’t perfect - clearly it’s angering some parts of the fandom - but at the same time I understand that it’s not about me, because I already know their names.

This is about establishing Liam, Louis, and Niall as individuals to the general public.  It’s not about putting Harry down - it’s about bringing the other three up to his level.
