↳ at last I see the light from tangled.

All those days watching from the windows, all those years outside looking in. All that time never even knowing just how blind I’ve been. Now I’m here blinking in the starlight. Now I’m here, suddenly I see. Standing here it’s all so clear. I’m where I’m meant to be. [x]

Tōrō nagashi (灯籠流し Tōrō = lantern / nagashi = cruise, flow) is a Japanese ceremony in which participants float paper lanterns down a river. This is primarily done on the last evening of the Bon Festival, festival based on the belief that this guides the spirits of the departed back to the other world. The white lanterns are for those who have died in the past year. Traditional Japanese beliefs state that humans come from water, so the lanterns represent their bodies returning to water.

“I love you…”

Lantern lights + night festivities for the last prompt for Kamarx week ; v ; Marx and Kamui go to a festival in Hoshido and enjoy immersing themselves in new culture!!

I had so much fun making this afsdfad note that I referenced their kimonos from Noragami’s Stray Stories cover!

My Rapunzel base is finished! It might even be my favorite one too. The lampposts were super intricate to print and the cobblestone was a pain to paint, but I think it came out great.

So this will be my final base for a little while as I’m out of infinity characters that I want to make them for (the starter pack of Jack Sparrow, Mr. Incredible, and Sully doesn’t do much for me). I am thinking about buying Jack Skellington or Sorcerer Mickey to make them for, but what I’m really waiting for is the Merida figure to come out this fall!
