Hey guys!!! So I just tried tank top binding (I took a really tight tank top dress, and a plain tank top, not lined, and folded them up so it’d be right around my chest) and it’s so much more comfortable than binding with ace bandages, which I know you’re not supposed to do, but it curbs the dysphoria pretty well.
Now with this, it’s easy to tell from the side that I still have boobs, but from the front you can just barely tell, so if it’s not uber important to pass and you just want to alleviate some dysphoria, tank top binding definitely helps. If you want a more step-by-step post, the link I follow for the most part is right here. I hope it goes well, remember to bind safely!
So I’ve had this idea in my mind since I listened to Paparazzi by Lady Gaga after months and months of skipping it on my playlist.
"I’m your biggest fan, I’ll follow you until you love me…“
So, Jack is an amateur photographer and Mark is a “not-so-famous” celebrity. Jack gets obsessed with Mark and, due to his wonderful shots, he presents himself to a magazine and gets some sort of “fame” on the platform. An event shows up and various celebrities are invited, among them, Mark. Jack decides to go with the excuse to “just take pictures”, he dyes his hair green, puts on gages, wears his glasses and fixes his goddamn facial hair and shows up.
Or something like that… I don’t write fanfiction, but if someone does writes good fanfiction I’d like to see this well written. Believe me, I’ve tried, but I suck :P
hey birdloaf whats ur advice for drawing facial expressions
HMMMmmmm lets see. here are some random things
everyone probably says this but use REFERENCE!! a lot of times its easiest just to take a picture of yourself and use that. u dont have to copy everything exactly but itll help a lot. pay attention to which parts of the face are squashed, stretched, closer together/farther apart than usual etc, and exaggerate it
it depends what kinda style you’re going for but dont get caught up in proportions or anatomical accuracy. the less physically possible ur facial expression is the funnier it will be
DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE EYEBROWS AND EYELIDS! its allll in the eyes man
also: the more lines u put on a face the more unsettling its probably gonna look
call-out post for certain selfies that aren't oil paintings with political relevance
Society™: 😂😭😂 @ girls who take pictures of themselves with things instead of just taking a picture of the thing….if you want to post a selfie just post a selfie!!! 😂😂
Society™: 😂😭😂 @ girls who post selfies with no point to them whatsoever other than to show that you look good!! How vain do you have to be smh!!!! 😂
Now to the point of this PSA: From this day forward I expect everyone who does this to only post selfies if they are actually oil paintings in the style of the Dutch masters that also have political relevance…..I have my eye on u
It’s been 5 days since my aunt passed away and it feels as though it was just yesterday that we got the news. I just can’t take it. I can’t stand to see pictures of her and get the reminder that she’s gone. It’s like I expect her to still be there and every time I see a picture it’s just that grim reminder. I miss the times when I was sick and she would be the first to call to see how I was doing. The time when I was just a baby and she sat down to make me a towel with my name on it. The time when my mother bought a blue curtain for my room and my aunt ran to buy material to make me a matching blue rug. All the time she spent making it nonstop until she was done because my mom’s flight date was nearing and she wanted to make sure my mother brought the rug to me. She was just so loving. She cared so much about everyone and would do anything for them whether or not she knew them. She was such a beautiful woman. She put everyone above herself and never showed anything but love. I just can’t fucking take it. I can’t accept that this happened to her. It shouldn’t have happened. She had such a long life ahead of her and it was just snatched away in an instant. I miss her so much.
I want Phan to be real just as much as the next person, but please do not take pictures of them in public!!! That’s creepy and an invasion of privacy!!!
And if the picture was of a couple-y moment, then they would’ve been outed, and no one has the right to out them if they want to keep it private!
I think most good looking suits are just brand new ones. Do you have examples of old but still in good-shape fursuits?
Yeah! There are plenty of suits out there that are at least 3-4 years old and still going strong! I think by 3 years most people either get a suit remade for aesthetic reasons, sell it away to someone who doesn’t take pictures, or just don’t wear it anymore. But here are some good-looking older suits!
Telephone is now around 5 years old! Made by The Phoenix Nest!
This wild-life donkey is 3 years old!
This winfox suit is 3-4 years old now!
Aaand here’s one of my own suits made by DVC! She’s creeping up on 6 years now, with just the fur on my fingers/palms getting grubby!
I don’t think the issue is that fursuits don’t last a long time or can’t look good after a long time; it’s just that people don’t wear them after having changed a fursona/gotten less attached to a character. Kitsune (my partial) is basically retired, so even though she’s in good shape I just don’t wear her anymore.
