it's kind of weird looking though

maniacaltoaster  asked:

Do you think it's kinda weird that even though the characters in Villainous don't TECHNICALLY have good designs, while that kind of thing destroys other cartoons, in this one, it seems to work in its favor? Like, they look ridiculous, over the top, and crazy, but that feels like exactly what they're supposed to look like.

oh sweetheart let me tell you a little secret

the people who genuinely think the Villainous character designs are bad don’t know a damn thing about designing characters for animation

STRAP IN FOLKS IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER RANT LESSON ABOUT ANIMATION CHARACTER DESIGN WITH NOVA (brought to you by SCAD: “I pay $35,000 a year to learn how to make cartoons so trust me I know what I’m talking about”)

The first thing any character design class (including the one I took) will teach you is “have a strong silhouette”

You can probably recognize almost if not every single one of these characters just from their outlines! So let’s take a look at the silhouettes of the Villainous cast…

HOLY SMOKES THEY ARE HELLA DISTINCTIVE!!! And here we even see what is probably the design reason for Dr. Flug’s paper bag and Demencia’s huge fluffy ponytail - they add to the strength of their silhouettes immensely.

Now let’s examine both the shape language of the characters AND how they’re likely divided in terms of their digital puppet rigs (as Villainous appears to use both the hand drawn and rigging techniques), because the former is the second thing any character design class will teach you and the latter is incredibly important to the modern digital 2D animation process. (Apologies if my rig estimates are off, I haven’t had as much experience with 2D rigging as I have with hand drawn.)

Black Hat has the most variety out of the cast, but broken up he’s really just a combination of rectangles, triangles and one or two circles. His hat is also kind of a shape in and of itself, one that comes very naturally when drawing his head. Like a lot of villain characters his sharpness is highly emphasized.

Dr. Flug is ALL about squares and skinny rectangles, with his only rounded shapes being his eyes and shoes. Normally when you see boxy characters they’re on the very masculine or muscular side, meant to seem strong or imposing, but Flug is a wimpy, scrawny twig. That’s really unorthodox and something I like a lot about his look.

What’s super interesting about Demencia is that next to 5.0.5, she has the most circles and rounded shapes. Sharpness is added in her details which makes her design look a lot more complex than it really is. What’s great about digital animation and 2D rigging is it makes characters who have a lot of specific details like her much simpler to animate, so she really isn’t impractical at all provided you’re animating her using a computer.

And finally we have Beariplier Markibear 5.0.5, who I’m sure surprises no one by being a big old round baby full of circles. His nose and snout are of course triangles though. I like how he’s the most intentionally simple out of the cast, even going so far as to have a different eye style that almost makes him look like something out of an ultra-cutesy anime. He doesn’t fit in with and stands out a lot from the others, which is entirely the point.

To sum up, the Villainous characters are both simple enough to animate on a budget/deadline and interesting looking enough to want to watch, the perfect combination for modern 2D digital TV animation. These designs were MADE for a 2017 Cartoon Network show in every sense, with just enough early 2000s influence to feel fresh and new as well as classic and nostalgic. I want these guys to represent and become iconic of CN the same way Finn, Jake, Mordecai and Rigby have.

anonymous asked:

Hey! I have a kind of random question: what korean beauty products do u use?? I am really curious bc I need recommendations? Sorry; it's a weird question.

It’s a great question, don’t worry! I can understand that, I love finding something new (and if that something new fits me perfectly then I’m super happy so!)

Sweats, I have a lot of stuff though so it might be a bit long-ish…

I’ll just start with skincare because it’s always what I’m looking for first:

The Face Shop Rice water bright rich cleansing oil (from normal to dry skin). The first cleansing oil I actually tried. It’s a pleasure using it, the smell is amazing, I will definitely buy it again. Removes make-up well for me, but I’ve read people saying it has a bit of a trouble re-moving very strong make-up, but since I don’t use it I’ll give it an A+.

• I have a few foams; one from The Face Shop as well - Rice water bright cleansing foam. Smells amazing as well, I nearly finished it. I have one stored I want to try, so not yet sure if I buy it again, but I love this one too. Also I have one from Skinfood Egg white pore foam - I think I’ll buy this one. These two might be a bit drying to your skin if using without a uh..bubble maker? Not sure how that thing called in english. It dried me out, I made that thing that helps making richer foam, now I don’t have any dryness so! Skinfood will probably be great for oilier skin.

• Theeen I have The Secret key’s Milk brightening toner. Still not sure about it, I broke out a lot when I was using it, but I am not sure if it was from it or from..period, I’m sorry, Still haven’t retried it, so don’t have an opinion except that I think the smell is pretty good.

• UUH i bought a lot of creams in the search for the perfect one. I have Tony Moly Pure eco snail moisture gel (smells fantastic, used it for the face a lot, didn’t break out, nothing really changed nor for the worst nor for the better, now use it mostly on my hands); I also recently bought Mizon’s All in one Snail repair cream (because I REALLY REALLY want a few marks to fade); comparing to Tony Moly’s it does make skin very soft to the touch. But I’ve been using it for like, six days, so other than that I can’t say how effective it’s going to be. Doesn’t quite smell, pleasant to use. Depending on how it goes next, I think I’ll re-buy it. I also use Aloe Soothing Gel by Nature Republic. used it all the time before i bought Mizon’s, never broke out. for now uh.. I kind of use it after shaving. HUGE container. I wonder if I will be able to finish it before it expires. Next (GOd, there are so many) Skinfood Fresh Apple sparkling water cream. Use it before make-up. It’s supposed to keep your skin matte, I love the smell of it, nice to use. My skin is pretty normal, so I don’t know how much it actually does what it’s supposed to. I’ll try it in summer and find out:”D

• nooow MASKS. oh, my love. sweet, sweet masks. I think my AAABsolute favourite is Skinfood’s Black sugar wash off mask. A present from my friend. Basically a scrub that you let to stay on your skin after you scrubbed. Smells amazing, leaves skin suuuper soft afterwards, will definitely 100% buy it again. Theeen I have Volcanic ash pore pack by secret nature. After using it the skin seems a bit brighter, a bit softer. Nothing too outstanding, but it’s fairly pleasant overall. I wanted to try Holika Holika’s Soda Pore Cleansing Bubble mask BECAUSE O MY GOD. BUBBLES. ON. MY FACE. BUBBLES. I swear I’m a child. I WAS REALLY CURIOUS OKAY. Pretty much the same effect as with Volcanic ash pore. Probably one time fun for me. (I mean. one bottle time, ahah). Theeen I wanted to try Elizavecca’s Hell Pore Clay mask, I think it was the first mask I bought. Wasn’t painful for me, skin is pretty soft afterwards, but I don’t think it does much for my skin? Probably because I don’t quite have that much to push out. It doesn’t quite catch it. Can remove dead skincells though, I’m sure. God. IS this all? No. I recently bought Holika Holika Honey Sleeping pack (I have canola); I’m still not sure, I had quite a big zit when I went to bed with it, in the morning it was, like, much paler and didn’t feel on my skin. Was it the mask’s doing? was the zit supposed to fade away? Not yet sure, since I bought it very recently with mizon. For masks I think that’s all. Kinda sticky because of the honey, but smells nice.

• I have one emulsion by The Saem Urban Eco Harakeke. Moisturising, smells good, make-up goes smoothly on it.

• the last for skincare: Ciracle pore control blackhead off sheet. I only used it twice, and it’s quite tricky and I guess takes some used to. basically does the job of steaming the face without steam and probably works a bit better. Pushes out everything from your nose, you just have to remove it. Didn’t push out as much as I’ve seen on pictures and in reviews for me, but it does it’s job. Nose is as smooth as a jellyfish. SO SMOOTH afterwards.

FINALLY I THINK WE ARE DONE WITH SKINCARE. OH DEAR GOD, not a million of products have passed.

Nooooow up to Make-uuuup~~ 

• BB CREAMS. I swear on those. I. am. a nerd. Before I tried any bb or cc creams that are sold in our stores they never fit me ever. They always felt so greasy and dark for me. I don’t know, I had the curse of bb creams and now i think it’s finally gone. The first korean one I tried was Aritaum Full Cover. The coverage IS nice, can be a bit shiny in a certain lighting, and feels pretty heavy on the skin. I think my problem with it was mostly my dislike for powders, so it felt sticky, but I think with people who DO use powders it’s going to work better. After that I tried Holika Holika Petit BB (Moisturizing). MY LOVE STARTED. I love how it feels, in certain lighting it makes the skin seem absolutely perfect, pleasant on daylight, doesn’t fell like a mask on a skin. Has universal tone. The Last one is CC, actually, but not less amazing. I’ve been using mostly it recently, CC Color change blemish balm. This one is MAAGIC because it’s like greenish-white, and then you put it on the face, and it turns into your face and it’s MAGIC i swear I love how it feels(doesn’t) on the skin, the coverage is decent for me, Baaaarely noticeable on the skin. I’ll definitely buy holika holika and this one again.

• as for concealers I have Aritaum Full cover liquid concealer for undereye (the tube is huge for concealer, I’m not sure if I will ever finish it since it takes such a minimum for me); and Facetone Creamy Tip concealer for any spots. Good coverage, most likely I’ll buy it as well.

• I have Sweet Cotton pore cover base by Holika Holika, still not sure about it, doesn’t quite hide pores much, at least for me, but the make up does seem to stay longer with it. I’ve read the reviews for people to whom it really worked in regard of hiding pores, so! Might just be me, striving for absolute perfection.

• I have A’pieu Cheek Chok blush. Overall nice, but I think it’s a bit too pigmented for me and it seems to be a bit hard to blend. Creamy texture, but not quite as creamy as I wanted.

• last but not least… tints. Fresh cherry tint, pleasant texture, but I think I picked a bit of a wrong shade for me, though if I use it with The Saem’s Saemmul Real Tint (it’s orangish) it gives a fantastic effect. I also have the latter in dark purple. Love those tints, stay forever (especially the dark one - which is also quite hard to wash off) surprise, tint leaves a tint! :”D Love these, gotta buy again most likely. If I ever finish those, ahah.

I’ve been writing this message for so long. I’m sorry it’s huge. I’m sorry I’m a nerd when it comes to makeup and skincare. Goodbye, money, GOODBUY. ;)

anonymous asked:

the quarians were SUCH A LETDOWN for me.. in ME1 i was like ok the tightly fitting armor leaves little to the imagination but maybe at least their faces are weird? then in me2 you could kind of see very human looking eyes glowing through the mask and i was like NO.. PLEASE NO... and then in me3 it was like The Big Reveal.. A Human, With Glowing Eyes and i was like NOOOOOOOOOO

Maybe they were really just grey humans this whole time.. 

I know they were originally going to make them look more like this:

Which might still be too humany for people but I think its much better then “literally a human face”

Anyways this is my…attempt i guess

They are otherwise very humanoid (though convergent evolution remarkably human-like) except their bug face, which includes both compound eyes and lensed “simple eyes”. They have a diet primarily made up of liquids and mush, and as a result have to puree much of their food.

anonymous asked:

this is kind of weird but do you happen to know anybody who makes moodboards of tom but it's not with white girls? i love them but every time i look at them my heart sinks because every. single. post. is about girls that don't look like me and it's kinda depressing :(

I actually don’t know of any at the top of my head :( I’m sorry. I made some for you though so you don’t feel left out (I actually don’t know what race/culture you’re part of so I made a few different ones?) (p.s. I do not make moodboards so these are probably shitty but I love you)!


You can possibly request one from @parkerroos, she is talented and I am garbage xo

A Cryptid in my Neighborhood????

Hey there you guys. So something a little weird happened this morning, and I’ve been aching to tell someone.

So I wait at the bus stop with my sister every morning. Everything’s been normal up until around last week, when the weather started getting warmer. I started to notice that at 7 AM, every morning, I would look down the street and a cat would make its way quickly from behind a house, trot across the street and keep on going into another yard. Same path every time.

So I lean over to my sister and I say all hushed, “Same cat every morning. Same time. Isn’t that weird?” And I look back over to the Cat.

It has halted its daily regiment to stop dead and turn its head towards me.

The Cat does not move.

I cannot see its face.

I’m not sure if it was just the light. I’m not sure if it was turned the other way. I knew I could feel it looking at me though I could see no eyes.

I turn to my sister, getting kind of nervous, and I say, “Is it looking at me?” My sister shrugs. I look back and The Cat is crossing my lawn. It’s crossing my neighbor’s lawn.

I think something’s going on. Was It drawn out because of the heat? Where is It going? Can It hear me? For reference, I drew out what I saw.

I think something’s going on in my little town. I think I’m gonna call this series “Cryptids of Coalition County”. I’ll report any new findings to you as soon as I can. We can call The Cat specimen number one.

Thank you for reading, my dear friend. I’ll hope you’ll join me in my journey. That is, if I have much time left. Do I already know too much?

So, I noticed something kind of weird in the Do or Die episode a while ago that I figured I should bring up. The Kindness kid (Cam) looks vaguely like you (though tbh it's hard to tell), is voiced by you, and has basically a shortened version of your name. Is Cam your self-insert or something? And if so, why did you (SPOILER ALERT) kill yourself off?!

I’m a girl

I don’t voice the kid

It’s short for nothing, his name is Cam

I think one of the biggest misconceptions that a lot of folks have about early tabletop RPGs is the assumption that high-level play is meant to look basically the same as low-level play, just with bigger numbers and different-coloured monsters.

If you look at the way they’re put together, however, that’s clearly not intended to be the case. Particularly among early versions of Dungeons & Dragons and its various imitators, there are clearly defined early, late and endgame phases, and in some cases, even a sort of postgame - though it’s often a challenge to tease out exactly what those phases are meant to look like; if there’s anything that early D&D and its contemporaries share, it’s being absolutely terrible at explaining how the rules are assuming the game is going to be played.

Take AD&D, for example - moreso the first edition than the second, though they both have similar ideas in mind. Folks often wonder what the deal is with high-level fighters spontaneously developing armies of followers. It’s kind of weird for them to just pop up out of nowhere as the rules suggest, and anyway, what good is a hundred first-level mooks in a high-level dungeon crawl? Wouldn’t they just die?

The answer is that, well, yes, they would be useless in high-level dungeon crawls, but the game is making a tacit assumption that dungeon crawling is no longer the primary focus of play at that level. Though it never actually comes out and explains it, the game has a baked-in progression whereby levels 9 through 11 mark a transitional phase away from dungeon crawling and toward domain management: fighters claim fiefdoms, clerics establish temples and train disciples, wizards begin constructing dungeons of their own and stocking them with monsters.

That’s why the rules want all those followers and infrastructure to just pop into existence at the appropriate level: to smooth over the boring setup phase and let you dive right into the fun parts of managing your domains. That isn’t to say that dungeon crawling stops outright, but it becomes a bit of a sideshow - if you’re tackling a dungeon, it’s a means to an end, not a goal in itself. Heck, if you’re a wizard, you may well be the one running the dungeon!

(That touches on another subtlety that often gets lost in translation, incidentaly. If you ever thought the spell list for high-level wizards looks weird as hell, you’re totally correct - from the perspective of a dungeon crawler. Look at it from the perspective of a dungeon administrator, however, and those spells’ intended purpose becomes much clearer. Prior to the game’s 3rd edition, which retooled itself to focus on dungeon crawling over the full span of levels, basically any wizard spell of 6th level or higher is operating on a totally different set of gameplay assumptions than the ones you might be expecting.)

Of course, none of this should be a new concept to modern players; many single-player CRPGs exhibit a similar transition from running fetch-quests to building and overseeing settlements at high levels, and even MMOs tend to have well-defined main game and endgame phases that share little in common in terms of their core gameplay. The problem isn’t that it’s an unfamiliar notion; the problem is the presumption that it’s a modern notion, when in fact the opposite is true - tabletop RPGs that remain focused on dungeon crawling throughout the life of a campaign are actually the more recent development.

Coffee. I need coffee. Those were the only thoughts running through my mind as I made my way to the local coffee shop near my house. I dragged myself out the car, grabbed my laptop and keys, and shut the door to lock it. I shoved the door to the coffee shop open, a bell ringing to notify the workers. “Morning (Y/N)! You want the usual?” The worker said to me. I was one of their regulars here. “Yes’m…please…” I mumble. The worker laughs to herself, “You got it!” As they start to brew my order, I make my way to my usual spot. The same old table tucked in the very back of the shop, next to the same old window, with the same old and convenient outlet that I plug my laptop into. Same as usu- wait. Something is different. That person, that man. He’s… sitting in my spot? My initial reaction was to get upset. How dare he take my seat? I was about to march over there and give him an earful, but I remembered that it was the morning, and I can’t think straight without my coffee. So, like a toddler, I grumpily stomp my way to the table directly next to it. Wrong table, next to a bland beige wall, without an outlet. Thankfully my laptop is charged. The worker kindly serves me my coffee, “Thank you so much.” I say, smiling sweetly at them. She nods back, returning to the counter. I took a few sips and sighed with relief. Time to start working.

After about an hour or so of doing my work, I started to feel eyes on me. Like someone was watching me. I looked around around to see, but there was no one. Only the man who was sitting in my spot. But, he was fully immersed in his book. It must be nothing. I decided I wanted some water, so I go up to ask for a cup. “Whatcha need, hun?” I walked up to the counter. “Um, a cup of water and… how about a cookie?” She smiles at me. “No problem.” I look around as I waited, until she handed me my order. “There you go!” I smile, “Thank you!” “Uh, (Y/N), I think that man just passed you a note?” The worker said, slightly amused. “Huh, that’s weird. Do you know who he is?” I say, curious. “He took my spot! I mean, I know its not mine but what I mean is nobody really likes to sit there because of where it is.” She nods, “He actually comes here pretty often. He’s really quiet, though.” I bob head as she talks. The worker starts to grin smugly. I raise one of my eyebrows, confused. “What?” She giggles, “Between you and me, He’s been looking at you all day. Nonstop!” I scrunch my eyebrows, “No way!” I say, blushing. “I’m serious! It’s kind of cute.” She leans in and whispers, “I think he has a crush on you.” I roll my eyes, “Yeah, right.” She smirks, “How about you go back to your table and see. I’m sure that note will tell you the same thing I said.” I laugh at how ridiculous she was sounding. “Yeah, yeah.” I smile at her again, “Well, thanks again!” I say, holding my water and cookie up. She nods, smiling. “Go find out what that note says!” I laugh sarcastically and walk away.

I make my way back to my seat. I couldn’t help but stare at the man as I walked back. He was still completely engulfed in his book. There’s no way he would pay any attention to me. I sit back back down. And the worker was right, there was a note. I pick it up and look over to the man again, who hadn’t even moved an inch. Confused, I decide to open the note up. I expected it to be a creepy and stereotypical, “Here’s my number, babe” with an awkward winky face, but I was actually pleasantly surprised.

It was poetry

The note read, “ The world just stops to admire your beauty. Your eyes shine like the moon on cool night…” I smiled to myself, blushing furiously. I look over to my right, and this time I actually caught a glimpse of this face. It seemed as if he was looking over at me, but the second I turned my head he jerked his head back to face his book. I turn back to the note, smiling again. The man then stood up and made his way into the bathroom. I quickly turned the note over to the blank side. Pen. I need a pen, damn it. I scrambled through my bag, thankfully I found one. After scribbling it on my hand to get the pen to work, I wrote back, “ You locked up my heart, Displayed for me to see like art…” I quickly threw the note onto his table, and it landed right on his book. A minute or so after, he return and sits back down. I hear him open the note, and I smile. I didn’t look at him, but I can feel him looking at me. Then, I hear him grabbing another piece of paper and ripping off a piece. He writes something else. This time, he gently put it on my table while I was pretending to do stuff on my laptop. I looked up to meet his eyes, but he was already looking away before I could. I opened the note as my heart was racing, “ Your hair flows like majestic sea.. Smile shines bright like diamonds…” I let out a small giggle. This time I knew he was looking at me, so I looked back at him and smiled. He seemed a little frightened, I guess he didn’t expect me to look at him that time, but he smiled back sheepishly. I tapped my pen on my chin as I looked up, thinking of how I was going to respond. When I finally thought of something, I wrote it down, “Taking your words to heart? Truly…” I folded the paper, and turned to my right. He was looking at his book once again, but I decided to be brave and tap his shoulder. He looked and started to blush. I giggle, and hand him the note. He takes it in his hands and smiles. I look away and pretend to go back to my work.

We continue like this for a while, giggling and smiling at eachother. We haven’t spoken a word to each other, though. “I’m curious. Your name?…” I write to him. He writes back, “Namjoon. Will you allow me the pleasure of knowing yours?…” Smiling to myself once again, although I’ll be honest my smile never left the second we started passing notes, I mustered up all my courage and turned to him, “(Y/N). My name is (Y/N)” He looks up, slightly startled. But his surprised look quickly turns into a warm smile. “It’s nice to meet you, (Y/N).” He holds his hand out to me and we shake hands. “Do you come by here often?” I ask him. He nods, “Yeah, it’s nice and quiet here. And the coffee isn’t too bad either.” I giggle. I look down at my watch. My heart sank. Oh god, I really need to go, but… “Is everything alright?” Namjoon asks, a little worried. “Yeah, uh… I’m sorry I feel so bad for doing this but I really need to go now. I’m late actually.” I say, sighing. “Oh… I’m sorry, then you should go.” I look up at him sadly. His eyes wander back to his book that was now closed as his face is overcome with disappointment. I feel terrible, I really don’t want to leave… 

Suddenly, an idea popped into my head.

“Namjoon, you said you come here often right? Do you think you’ll be here tomorrow?” He looks at me, a smile spreading on his face once again. “Yeah, I was planning on coming back here around the same time.” I nod, smiling as I gathered my things. I walked up to him, “You think you can save me a seat tomorrow, then?” I say as I gently place a friendly on his shoulder. He looks up at me, “Y-yeah! Of course!” He laughs awkwardly. I laugh at his awkwardness, “Okay, Namjoon. I’ll see you tomorrow. I promise!” I begin to walk towards the door, “O-okay! See you then!” I look back at him and grin, “See you!” I approach the door. I manage to glance at the worker before I left, and she winked at me. I rolled my eyes and smiled as I walked out the door.

I unlocked my car, and plopped myself behind the wheel. I let out a long sigh followed by a big goofy grin on my face.

Man, I love coffee.


Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading! ♡

  • what people hear: I don't know what I want to get for lunch...
  • what's happening: Sandwich? I like soup. They have weird soup here though. OH MY GOD, CAN WE HAVE ICE CREAM FOR LUNCH? They have coffee and tea over there. I like tea. That's a lot of honey. What's in those baskets? There's cake in that fridge over there. PUPPY CHOW too. Bagels are okay. Are those apples? The apples here aren't very good though. That's a lot of fruit. I'm okay with fruit, but not that kind. We have oatmeal in our room. We came here on a mission. That lunch server is looking at us weird. That's because we've been standing here staring at the fruit bar for a while. Is that cereal? I don't want cereal. I smell something fried. No, we're not putting garbage in our body. So what's wrong with soup? It's gross. Fish? We haven't had fish in nearly a decade, that would mess us up. It's also bad for the environment.
  • what people hear: The oceans are vastly overfished.

For @jercmevaleska who made the v good point that Jack Whitehall’s story about having to hide a girl under his covers would make a great Jily au so!!!! Here we go!!!!!

Lily swears blind that when she apparated out of her house last night and snuck into James’s Fuck Off Massive mansion through his bedroom window, she’d only wanted to talk to him. Except she’d shaved her legs before she left so maybe that’s not entirely true, but whatever, she doesn’t overthink it. This, now, is nice. She woke up with her legs entangled with James’s, swamped in one of his t-shirts, with her face tucked into his chest, and it all felt disconcertingly good considering that they’re just meant to be mates. Mates who snog sometimesJames sleeps like its a competitive sport, because of course he does, fidgeting and twisting, limbs stretched like he’s trying to cover as much surface area as possible, half in and half out of the covers to maintain the perfect body temperature, probably, the arsehole. Lily got at least three elbows to the face during the night, and possibly one knee, though she isn’t sure how he managed that. He seems to have settled down a little now, though. Its 7am, which is weird, because Lily is awake and as a rule she doesn’t wake up before 11 unless is absolutely necessary, but she’s kind of glad she did.

She props herself up on one elbow and brushes some hair off of James’s face, just because she can. There’s pale sunlight filtering through the windows and its lighting up dust motes and softening the angles of James’s face. Its odd, seeing him without his glasses on, makes him look younger, somehow. 

Fuck

If she hadn’t already been a complete and utter goner before, she certainly was now. Before she can worry about this too much, James seems to sense her presence or something, because his eyes flutter a little and Lily quickly lies back down so she doesn’t look like a creep. He slowly sits up, and glances down at her, rubbing his eyes with the heel of his hand. To his credit, the grin he gives her is a little smug, but it hasn’t quite reached shit-eating levels. 

‘Morning, Lils.’

‘Morning, James.’

James lies back down, and for a second they just watch each other across the stretch of pillow. He opens his mouth as if to say something, but is abruptly cut off by a yell of ‘James, have you seen this?’ There’s a rattle at the door, and before Lily can register whats going on, James’s eyes are widening and a hand is on her head, pushing her down beneath the covers. 

James-’ she hisses, but he just shushes her urgently and yanks the covers up further. 

‘The bloody Ministry, Archibald Cattermole of all people, Head Auror! At a time like this! They’re off their rockers, the lot of them-’ Lily had met Fleamont a few times, liked him a lot, but Jesus Christ did the man really have to barge into his son’s room at the crack of dawn to discuss politics? She hears the shuffle of a newspaper, and then ‘Archibald Cattermole, James! Are you listening?’

‘Yeah, dad, what a joke. The bloke’s probably never gone on the offensive in a game of chess.’

‘Exactly my point, James, what chance is he going to have against the Death Eaters-’ 

‘We need someone with some guts-’ 

Lily sighs, and rolls her eyes, settling down a bit. If she’s going to be here whilst James and his Dad try to discuss the entire Wizarding World out of the biggest crisis it’s seen in a thousand years, she may as well get comfy. That doesn’t mean she has to be happy about it, though, so she gives James a good pinch behind the knee for good measure, grinning when he attempts to kick her but just ends up knocking a pillow off the bed. 

‘Everything all right, James?’ asks his father. James chokes. 

‘Oh- of course- all fine and dandy here-’ 

‘James, sweetie,’ Lily recognises the voice of James’s mother, ‘Do you want some tea?’ 

Lily assumes James doesn’t get much say in the matter of whether or not he’s having tea, because she hears footsteps cross the room, and then James is reaching up to accept the mug.

‘Tah, mum, I was- ah, just about to get dressed, actually. Would you mind-’ But he’s cut off by his father who has begun reading a statement from the Minister.

‘’I believe I speak on behalf of the entire Ministry in saying that-’ Oh, Sirius! Come here, you’ll be interested in this- ‘in saying that we have chosen the most competent-’ -ha!- ‘and adept man for the job-’’ 

Lily groans inwardly, wondering if it’s a normal occurrence for the entire Potter household to converge in James’s bedroom at 7 in the morning for an incredibly sarcastic reading of the Prophet. She hears more footsteps as who she presumes to be Sirius enters the room.

‘Morning, Potters. All right there, James? You’re looking a bit constipated this morning, mate. Oh, thanks Mrs Potter-’ Lily thinks that she’d quite like a cup of tea right now, and maybe she’d have gotten some if James hadn’t forced her into hiding. Part of her wants to pop up from beneath the covers, hoping they’d all do the proper English thing: pretend like nothing was out of the ordinary and offer her a cup of tea. She can’t sell James out for a cuppa, though, and the implications of emerging from beneath the covers half way down the bed probably aren’t the best, so she settles for running a hand up James’s thigh just to watch him squirm. 

‘’-And we’ll continue to do everything in our power to protect our way of life from the people who seek to destroy it.’ Well, I have never read such a load of codswallop in my life.’ 

There’s a general hum of agreement.

‘Voldemort’ll have the Ministry under his thumb by the end of the month, you just watch.’ adds Euphemia. 

That’s why I bet Dumbledore must be planning something,’ says Sirius, ‘He must know the Ministry’s useless- and he’s not the type to sit back and let them fuck everything up for the rest of us-’

‘Language, Sirius.’ chides Euphemia, but she doesn’t sound particularly bothered. ‘Though you’re right, of course.’

‘More flawed than people think, I reckon, old Dumbledore,’ says Fleamont, ‘But he’s the best chance we’ve got. That’s for sure. What do you reckon, James, you’re being uncharacteristically quiet on the subject?’

‘What? Oh, Dumbledore? Brilliant man, he is. Completely bonkers, of course, but if anyone’s got a chance against Voldemort, its him. Bloody shame he wont take on the role of Minister, if you ask me. The Ministry could really do with somebody with his brains running things. Anyway, I really do want to get ready, now-’ 

It carries on like this for what feels like an hour, but in reality is closer to about fifteen minutes. James keeps trying to make half-hearted excuses to kick the lot of them out, but he’s thwarted at every turn by his father remembering something else to be outraged about. When they’ve finally left, James yanks back the covers and peers down at Lily sheepishly. She’s lying on her stomach, staring daggers at him. 

‘Is your family insane?’ she asks, sitting up and shifting over to sit besides him stroppily. ‘Its 7:15 in the morning! What do you discuss at dinner? How to end world hunger? Throw about some ideas for curing bloody cancer?’

‘Look, I’m sorry, my parents are just a bit passionate, and I didn’t want the first time you met them to be like that!’ 

Lily rolls her eyes. 

‘James, I’ve met your parents like, five times.

‘I know but- the first time you met them as- you know-’

Lily makes a confused face. 

‘As what?’

‘Like- well- my girlfriend.’

Lily scoffs. ‘We have sex like, once- maybe four times, and suddenly I’m your girlfriend?’ 

James shrugs. 

‘Well- I mean, not if you don’t want to be, but come on, Lils. You basically are. We snog quite a lot, and neither of us have snogged anyone else in like, months. We go on dates. The other week we bought Peter a joint birthday present for Merlin’s sake.’ 

Lily stares at him. She feels her mouth hanging open and promptly closes it. Then she takes a few steps forward and kisses him on the mouth. 

‘Does- does that mean we’re a thing?’ James asks after a few seconds of this. Lily shrugs. 

‘I don’t know. Still considering it. Will it mean next time I stay over I wont have to face near suffocation and your mother will offer me a cup of tea?’ 

‘Yes?’

She kisses him again. 

‘Well, that improves your chances.’

allura

  • allura owns the store. she’s also the head pharmacist
  • which is always the owner of the store
  • in a permanent state of “my employees are fucking incompetent i should fire them” but never does only reprimands them
  • the cameras in the store show her everything thats happening she has a big screen that show all of the 24 areas. sometimes when shes bored and it’s slow she’ll sit there and watch the employees 
  • she calls lance several times and tells him to stop fucking around bc he’ll just be hanging around the front cash bugging the fuck out of keith and pidge and hunk, if he’s there
  • theres a betting pool w the staff on when she and shiro are finally going to hook up
  • she deals with customer complaints when shiro isn’t around; a lot of customers see her pretty face and think she’ll be lenient on them , but oh boy. ohhh boy are they wrong
  • she’ll fuckin shred em
  • she’s stern but a very kind and understanding boss

coran

  • coran is one of the front store managers (meaning he’s one of the managers of everything that isn’t pharmacy and cosmetics).
  • he’s also the product receiver
  • has to do a lot of cycle counts and damage reports bc customers drop things, especially cosmetic things, so often
  • its expensive
  • permanently stressed
  • jokes around a lot
  • will come check up on employees and see if they’re working or not
  • usually doesn’t do much if they’re not
  • just tells them to get to work but like doesnt actually do anyhing about it
  • one time he walked into the cosmetics department and saw lance giving hunk an impromptu makeover and said “dont do that on store time!” but lance offered to give him one too so coran was like ‘oh yes’ and never actually gave lance shit
  • very smart and suggests a lot of ways to improve customer service, ignores keith whenever he says ‘or we could not do that’
  • VERY protective of the staff, will fight anyone who treats them poorly

shiro 

  • shiro is the head front store manager, meaning he’s above coran but below allura
  • (fs managers wear blue collared long sleeve shirts and ties. pciture shiro wearing that. thank u for ur time)
  • the store is severely understaffed so shiro is permanently stressdt
  • because he’s the one that deals with hiring and raises and wages and whatnot
  • is literally the Team Dad™ and the employees go to him a lot when they have issues/are being harrassed by a customer
  • since they cant tell customers to fuck off they get shiro to do it instead bc shiro is the manager and can do what he wants
  • (shiro never tells customers to fuck off. not explicitly. he’s too kind for that. hes very good at subtly telling them off though. kindly.)
  • takes naps in allura’s office a lot 
  • is also in charge of what products get brought in
  • wants to go for a yearlong nap when lance and pidge keep suggesting all these weird sex toys and lubes
  • “look at this thing it looks like a BANANA shiro can you bring it in i’m gonna fucking sell this to that cranky ass old dude–” “NO, pidge, we are not bringing in a banana sex toy. jesus christ.”
  • “YOOOO I’D GET A THIRTY PERCENT DISCOUNT ON THIS LUBE ITS STRAWBERRY FLAVOUREDO OOHH” “i dont want to hear about your sex life, lance.”
  • no one knows how tf he got his scar or lost his arm but everyone always asks if he can robot punch the dick customer in the face and shiro always has to firmly tell them that’s rude and also, no, but only because theyd get fined

hunk

  • hunk is the best merchandiser (stock person basically, the ones putting products out and whatnot)
  • often climbs the shelves in the receiving room bc although he doesnt look it hes super nimble 
  • the toilet paper is always on the top shelf and customers always want it bc its always on sale so hunk is perpetually climbing the shelves
  • sometimes he gets stuck up there and isnt let down until shiro hears him screaming, sometimes hours later
  • shiro leaves him in charge of signage and sale tickets which is fine bc hunk always bums off half of them to lance (who always whines bc he has enough to do in cosmetics which is a lie because theres nothing happening there ever)
  • deals with a lot of shit in general
  • “are you sure you dont have any more of this in the back?” “well ma’am, you see, this thing here” (handheld device) “tells me we have zero in stock, so, like, yeah. im sure” 
  • has a small crush on one of the regular customers called shay, who will hang around and talk to him until shiro comes around the corner and says “Get back to work”
  • whenever he sees one of his coworkers being bothered by a customer he’ll come up and very cheerfully say “can i help you??” as said coworker makes a break for it
  • a VERY hard worker, always gets compliments from customers and even hugs sometimes from the regulars
  • always brings in cookies or donuts he baked and leaves them in the staff room for everyone to share; they always tell him to quit his job and open a bakery
  • hunk flushes and beams but would never leave this shit hole of a place, he says
  • spends like 70% of the time he’s in the receiving room dancing and singing loudly along with the radio, pidge joins him sometimes
  • so does lance and theyll play impromptu basketball with garbage and empty boxes
  • dabs at lance when he sees him across the store

pidge

  • pidge is the cash supervisor meaning theyre the one who deals with counting the safe, covering breaks, and dealing with customers when shiro, allura and coran have gone home
  • since the managers usually dont work night shifts, pidge is in charge almost every night from 2pm to close, at midnight
  • literally dead inside, makes jokes about it a lot
  • “hey pidge can you bring me a roll of toonies when you have the chance?” “sure, keith, i’m not doing anything anyway, only taking care of this entire fucking store on my own and wanting to die” “same” “nice”
  • will enter the staff room and announce “i hate my fucking life” and do a shot of chocolate milk
  • the tills crash a lot, and pidge gets at least 6 calls a day from lance especially because the tills are shit in the cosmetics department
  • “my cash crashed again” “just fucking leave it lance i dont give a shit” “i have customers” “okay ill come reboot it but only because youll cry if i dont” “Thanks pidge love u” (pidge has hung up already)
  • very small but always ready to fight
  • will literally tell a customer to eat a dick if they deserve it
  • one old guy was harrassing keith because he didnt have enough lottery tickets and keith was trying to remain polite (which he sucks at) and pidge came up and said “sir kindly calm down or leave this store immediately and dont come back”
  • covers lance’s breaks, since the department cant be unattended, and will shout across the store when they see lance stopping at front cash on the way back to flirt with keith
  • “YOURE NOT BEING PAID TO FLIRT WITH KEITH LANCE GET UR ASS BACK HERE” (customers stare)
  • got called “she” after specifying they want “they” pronouns multitple times, and then refused to serve the customer again

keith

  • is that stereotypical cashier that literally wants to die
  • “hi welcome to quiznak did you find everything you were looking for?” *customer bitches about sale prices and blames keith as though he personally chose the price* “okay”
  • its always dead from 7pm to midnight so he’ll just stand there and read a book, and pidge will be like “u cant do that” and keith will be like “too bad” and pidge is like “tru”
  • has stupid competitions with lance, will often compete with him for Worst Customer Ever Stories
  • lance: “this woman told me i shouldnt work in cosmetics because im a guy!! what kind of bullshit!! i didnt give her free samples” keith, flatly: “a man yelled at me for five minutes solid because we don’t sell duracell batteries and then threw his empty coffee cup at me and walked away”
  • the uniform is a short sleeved t shirt but keith always wears a black shirt underneath it and no one cares enough to stop him
  • he also wears his skinny jeans instead of work slacks but again no one cares
  • this pleases keith because he knows his ass looks great in those jeans, and he knows lance stares at it from across the store
  • gay
  • actually has terrible apathy and poor social etiquette and is bad at reading social cues which hes working on with shiro’s help
  • a customer sadly said “i lost my husband” and keith blankly says “did you find him” and shiro, who’s there for whatever reason, gives him a pained look, until keith says “oh god im so sorry i didnt realise oh god”
  • when its really slow and pidge is on cash he’ll leave to go “straighten up” the aisles but hes actually going to visit lance in the cosmetics department bc arguing with lance is fun
  • literally doesnt care about makeup or skincare but lance does and keith thinks its cute
  • if theres no customers pidge will get on the PA and say GAYYY for the whole store to hear
  • hunk will join in from the receiving

lance

  • okay so im a cosmetician so this is entirely based off of my experience
  • lance is one of the only cosmeticians. there are 4 running the entire department. lance suffers everyday. he might as well be the fucking manager
  • knows so much about skincare that it’s lowkey terrifying. has amazing skin. “Whats your secret???” asks a customer. lance will never reveal. (its glycolic peels and a good moisturiser)
  • also is incredible at eyeliner, gives shiro a run for his money
  • “youre a guy why are you working in cosmetics” “because im beautiful”
  • the cosmetician uniforms are all black, long sleeve blazers and black pants. lance looks really good because he’s tall and slim, and pidge always tells him what a gay look it is
  • “im BI, pidge” “i know but its a gay look because its a GOOD look”
  • its always fucking HOT in the cosmetics department because its far away from the freezers and the lights for the makeup make the entire dpt like a sauna
  • lance will cry about it at any given time. he BEGS allura to change the AC settings but she never does
  • goes to front cash to steal bags a lot because they run out a lot at cosmetics but mostly actually goes to say some kind of pickup line to keith, or to whatever cute girl is waiting in keith’s line (earning himself a savage glare)
  • always has makeup swatches up and down his arms and all over his hands and smudges on his cheeks; somehow still looks flawless, and he knows it
  • shamelessly applies makeup in the middlle of his shift, earning himself calls from allura and shiro telling him to work andstop doing that
  • he doesnt stop
  • when hes bored hell leave the department and go hang out with hunk in the back for like a half hour and claim he was printing signs when asked
  • “i may hate my job and want to die most of the time, but at least i look good” *finger guns* *keith rolling his eyes*
  • a pretty girl or cute boy enters the department looking for a consultation and lance flirts the whole time, partially because hes a flirty dude, and partially because he KNOWS it’ll up his sales. also he likes making people smile.
  • makes faces at keith from across the store when keith is standing at his cash looking like a zombie. keith responds and they have an ugly face contest

bonus:

  • after close, pidge, hunk, and lance will grab the trolleys and race down the aisles, often crashing into shelves or each other. keith joins sometimes and fucking slaughters them all
  • allura: i should fucking fire you all

Avengers: The Children’s Crusade (2012) #1 (of 9)

“And you think I have the power to do something like that… Because you believe Tommy and I really are the sons of the Scarlet Witch?”

“Here we go…”

“Tommy has doubts, but how else do you explain a speedster and a witch named “Thomas” and “William” who could be twins?”

What, it’s been months and Tony can’t be bothered to fork a few hundred dollars and have you two DNA tested? You’re going to tell me that at the very least the two of you still haven’t confirmed you’re twins? Or that SHIELD or Tony Stark himself doesn’t have a DNA sample for one of their longest timed members turned most feared mutant on the planet?

No one’s given anyone a paternity test?

But I suppose that level of thinking would also mean like… Tommy and Billy having to think of how weird it is to be on a team with a teenage version of their former kind of dad?

Nevermind, it’s okay, that’d be a weird thing to think about. Leave this giant plot hole in its place instead. 

I do love Billy calling out the Avengers on the hypocrisy of how they handle people though. I always love when heroes get called on these things because it’s like. At least the writer’s can admit that they’re making the characters contrived to justify what they’re doing. And you can feel that way and still love the characters on the receiving end.

Just look at how many Batman reviews I’ve given!

Hello, would do hcs about Tamaki, Bakugou and Todoroki dealing with their s/o's younger sibling? And that sibling admires them, calling them "nii-san" and thinks that their are cool, generally is super hyped on

oooh how cute!!

Amajiki Tamaki

  • A mix between embarrassed and flattered, he’s not used to this kind of attention! Although he loves that his s/o must’ve spoken well about him to their family for him to be so well-liked. 
  • He’ll demonstrate his quirk if their sibling wants to see it! The looks of awe on the kids face makes him feel all fuzzy inside!

Bakugou Katsuki

  • He’s rather pleased, in his own cocky way. He’ll hype the kid up as well, asking them if they want to see all the cool things he can do with his quirk!
  • He’s a bit weirded out by being called “nii-san” though, it would catch him off guard the first time it happens! However, he thinks its kinda nice, having someone admire him so much.

Todoroki Shouto

  • Rather surprised at the admiration, he wonders what kind of things his s/o has told their sibling about him. Still, he’ll gladly sit and answer any questions they might have!
  • He has a soft spot for kids, so he wouldn’t mind being called “nii-san!” He’d totally offer to help babysit the kid if his s/o’s parents ever needed them to. He’d end up becoming really close to his s/o’s sibling!
Have a Kevin of the Day - Day Five

Just A Smile…

Day 5

Neil was having a hard time recently. Injuries were always a huge risk factor for athletes and could easily mean the early end of a promising career. Meniscal injuries were common enough among Exy players, but that didn’t mean his life as a national Exy player couldn’t be over in a blink of an eye. His two boyfriends understood that perfectly well and tried to make it as easy as possible for him. Andrew couldn’t really bring himself to like Neil’s masochistic streak, his urge to watch every practice session, to accompany them to everything Exy related, even though his attendance wasn’t really required as long as he wasn’t cleared for participate again —but he kept his mouth shut and took Neil along; and Kevin didn’t even seem to see a problem with it in the first place.

So every morning all three of them got into Andrew’s car, and Kevin had even retreated to the back seats, folding his long legs behind Andrew, since the goalkeeper had his seat pretty much as close to the wheel as the car allowed him to be anyway —and: Seriously, just how did you manage to stay that short —I don’t know, Kevin… How will you manage to get stabbed by your boyfriend, because you know what? That’s definitely going to happen one of these days —Guys, it’s too early to be at each other’s throats already. Can we just get to the stadium and cut the BS for once? …

So Kevin and Andrew had shut up and their moody boyfriend had stretched his leg and rested his elbow against the door, staring at the city passing them by outside of the window.

The traffic was horrible that day. One of the roads was blocked during construction works and they had to take a detour.

While Kevin was better at reading the general mood swings of his two partners, Andrew was better at noticing little details and connecting them to the bigger picture. Both of them noticed the gloomy air inside the car change suddenly, as Neil silently smiled behind his hand, his lips stretching wide enough that he couldn’t hide it anymore. He didn’t say anything about it though. Kevin leaned forward to have a better look, but whatever had been lightened his boyfriend’s mood, he couldn’t find it.

“Hmm? What did I miss?”

“Nothing,” Neil mumbled, still smiling.

“Tell me,” Kevin insisted, but Neil’s lips just twisted upwards even more, all the way into a full-fledged smirk. He wouldn’t tell Kevin. The taller striker leaned forward between the seats so he could see Andrew’s face. The goalkeeper had a little smirk of his own in place, and Kevin started to feel left out. If Neil wouldn’t tell him, Andrew sure wouldn’t either. “Hmpf,” he huffed and leaned back again.

The next morning they took the same route, and once again Neil smiled suddenly at something Kevin hadn’t noticed. Something outside on the street, he concluded. Andrew must have seen it though, for even as their normal route to the stadium was open for traffic again, the blonde continued to bypass it, even if that meant seven minutes longer on the road.

On the third day Kevin sat on the other side in the back so he would have the same view as Neil. However, this time they all were disappointed when Neil looked up at a large billboard and didn’t smile. It was an add for a new perfume, Kevin noticed, and apparently whatever had been there before had been the cause of his partner’s amusement.

The next day they took their old route again and no one said a word about it. It was a week later when a package arrived for Andrew. The round shape betrayed its contents. Andrew usually didn’t give much thought about decorating, so him ordering a picture of something spiked Kevin’s curiosity. It turned out to be a picture of an art campaign of an Aquarium, featuring an octopus in a very loud color scheme of pink and blue. ‘IF IT WANTED TO WRAP ITS WEIRD ARMS AROUND ME, I WOULDN’T SAY NO.’ was written on it, and seriously, Kevin didn’t get it. He refused to believe that his boyfriends had some kind of weird tentacle fetish.

Andrew insisted to put the picture up on their kitchen wall though, and when Neil came home from yet another physical therapy session, he stopped in his tracks and stared it when he entered the room.

“You didn’t,” he chuckled and turned towards the short goalkeeper.

“Sure did,” was Andrew’s only reply and Neil started laughing.

“I love it,” the auburn-haired backliner said and Andrew looked immensely pleased for a second.

“Could someone fill me in already,” Kevin said, feeling left out again and liking it less and less every passing moment. They both looked at him, causing Neil to laugh again and Andrew to smirk.

“You wouldn’t get it,” the blonde told him.

“Try me,” Kevin challenged and crossed his arms over his chest. Andrew copied his pose and leaned back against the wall behind himself, nodding at the picture.

“That’s you,” he told the striker and he was dead serious about it. Kevin stared at the picture again. Andrew had been right, he didn’t get it at all.




<<Day 4


haha… okay. 
whoever came up with that lovely HC that Kevin behaves like an octopus while being asleep, wrapping his long limbs around every source of heat in reach…. I thank you, cause you have made my days brighter on many occasions since then. *chapeau* 


my thanks, dear @bvccvrdi for introducing me to this wonderful art campaign! I love them all. <333 

anonymous asked:

hey I've noticed that Nathan has kind of a weird landing position and it's not as nice as the other top men and was wondering if it had something to do with poor technique or not?

“Poor technique” is vague and subjective because no two skaters jump the same way, there isn’t one method of jumping that suits everyone. But some general qualities of “good” jumps include: good height and distance, tight air position, correct takeoff edges, speed and flow on the landing, good body position on the entry and exit, looking effortless throughout.

Nathan’s jumps have pretty good height, though he’s more of a fast rotation type of jumper than a sheer amplitude type. He has no edge issues with either his lutz or flip. His air position is usually pretty good. One thing to nitpick is that he sometimes doesn’t get much flow out of his landings and they can be a little messy, and if you’re really picky you can talk about his posture going into jumps, but these are not big issues compared to more serious jump problems that other skaters have. Nathan might not have the prettiest jumps in the world but his jumps are far from bad, his technique is sound and works well for him (except for his 3A, but that’s a different story).

Pleaseee continue the hc of small town boy jeongguk and jimin who likes wearing skirts and makeups and how they ended up together 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

+ Jimin can always feel Jungkook’s eyes on him. No matter what he is wearing, skirts or baggy jeans, Jungkook stares.

+ when Jimin looks up Jungkook blushes and turns away. Jimin thinks it’s cute though he feels like he should be grossed out or annoyed. But Jimin understands he is the first of his “kind” that Jungkook has met.

+ Jungkook finds himself constantly hovering the makeup isle in any store he goes into. He is so curious about it all, and also thinks about buying Jimin some thing. Then blushes and walks away.

+ “Hey…” Jimin looks up to see Jungkook blushing while messing with the end of his shirt. “Whats up Kook? I hope its not weird. I promise Tae will be back in a bit.” “N-no… I was just wondering…. if you could…”

+ Jungkook finds himself standing between Jimin’s legs as the elder sits on the bathroom counter with his make up kit. Jungkook blushes as Jimin applys the nude color eye shadow.

+ “There. I didn’t put dark colors on you. Your eyeliner is just enough to define your eyes. Same with the eyeshadow.” Jimin smiles as Jungkook looks at the mirror. His face is more defined and looks… good.

+ “Tha-thanks you.” Jungkook mummers shyly looking at Jimin. Jimin smiles as he pats Jungkook’s head. “No problem. What made you want to try makeup?” “Y..you did.”

+ Jungkook let’s himself become Jimin’s doll after that. Jungkook discovers he isnt into bright colors or obvious amount of makeup but enjoys small amounts. Jimin gets him to even skirt which Jungkook couldn’t wear for too long. But he now wears shorter shorts (As in above the knee a bit lol)

+ “Hey Kookie.” Jimin says one day applying foundation to Jungkook’s skin. He has such nice skin. “Yes?” Jungkook asks opening his eyes. Jimin smiles as he pulls away. “Wanna try something new?” “Like what? "Me?”

From his textbooks, Stiles had gotten the impression that vampires had a weird, stretched out look to them — slightly too-long limbs and pale skin. This guy, though, he looked human, broad-shouldered and clearly muscular even under a loose sweatshirt. He wasn’t pale at all, his skin lightly tanned, hair dark, eyes pale. They narrowed at Stiles and Stiles froze as the man looked him up and down, clearly judging him. He must have passed the test, though, because the man kind of shrugged and said, “Take off your clothes.”

I really want to cosplay Nico Robin's timeskip outfit from out piece but I'm having a lot of trouble with the skirt, I can't seem to figure out what kind of fabric I should make her beach wrap out of without it being too stiff or cheap looking. Do you have any ideas that could help me? Thanks ahead of time

Hello there!

This is one of those few places where you can go with either a woven fabric or a knit fabric and it’ll still work with the garment. Which you choose would depend on what look you want and what you are comfortable working with.

If you want a woven fabric, look for something that is lightweight with a good drape and a soft hand. Peachskin might work, or a lightweight crepe, or a fine linen, or if you don’t mind it being a little sheer, a cotton lawn or voile might work. I would stay away from things like quilting cotton for this, since it won’t have the correct drape. I wouldn’t do anything as light as a chiffon. Rayon, linen, silk, or nylon content would be good, some finer cottons, and some polyesters. 

For anything you try, be sure to either drape it over your arm or get a swatch (if shopping online) and try draping that over your finger to see how it behaves and what kinds of wrinkles it breaks into. If you want added flow, cut it or drape it so that the fabric hangs on the bias rather than on the grain.

I think that for this, however, I would personally use a lightweight knit. It may not be as accurate to what that type of garment would be made of in real life, but it would get the kind of drape you are looking for. Something like a jersey would work, though it tends to curl at the edges. A plain spandex knit might actually be a good option here, as weird as it sounds. Also, look at stretch microsuede and turn it to the backside and see how it looks – it’ll likely have a soft sheen to it, and while it’s a bit heavier than the other options here, it should drape nicely. You want something that’s lightweight, but has enough weight to hang down under its own weight, rather than floating or rustling, if that makes sense.

I hope that helps! Good luck :]
