I do love colorful fingernails and agree that the painting process itself is kinda fun but, unfortunately, 98% of my attempts to look cool'n'fancy end in fits of rage and frustration. 😅 

(I admit, it doesn’t necessarily help that half of the time I’m like “yes, cool, done with painting nails, now I should immediately get dressed, tie my shoes and hurry to get out”… Time management, people!!)

Hi hun, I noticed on your tattoo tutorial that you use gimp also and I'm not very good at it. I'm not looking for anything fancy just a little tutorial on how to cut a sim out of CaS and and colour the background please? I have a white CaS background and usually if I do Select by colour or fuzzy select and click on the background then cut the sim out they have a white line around them so when I colour the background the white line stays. Could you please please help me?

Hi nonnie, please check out this masterlist I made for editing, you’ll find lots of tutorials on removing the background, but if you still have trouble you might want to raise the Threshold up a bit in the tool box bar below! However if you still need help send me another message :)

my job just got these rose ciders which is good cause its not really sweet and uh … anyways i might just like,buy a carton of them solely cause they look like fancy soda and i could real easily be strollin down the street straight chuggin em all summer

there’s something about the style of DAO that i love

it’s just so… it’s very drab.  all rogue armor looks exactly the same.  like, helmet upgrade?  yep it’s the same thing but in a slightly different tint.  mages get those ridiculous hats and the dingy robes.  grey wardens don’t have that flashy blue and silver armor yet they just wear whatever the hell drops off of darkspawn.  ferelden is brown and muddy.  as it should be.  denerim is the crown jewel of the country but it’s just dogs barking and dirt and flies.

when your warden suddenly decides that they’re no longer an archer or mage and grabs a random ass sword to shove through the archdemon’s skull, they’ve marched their way up and down this maker-forsaken land and they’ve got mud and dog shit all over their boots and no part of this journey was even remotely glamorous, because it was about spending days in the deep roads, covered in blood and bile and ichor, so of course you’re gonna make your final blow look at least vaguely fancy, because you deserve that much

and i just.  i love it.

I've been wondering, what is a tea gown?

A tea gown was a dress/robe hybrid worn ONLY in the home or privacy of family and very close friends.They are supposed to be inspired by kimonos and intended to be a more relaxed garment that could be more flowing and even allowed for the wearer to go corset-less,I’m not sure if that was common. They were simple to put on and could be done without the help of a lady’s maid. 

“It has always a train and usually long flowing sleeves; is made of rather gorgeous materials and goes on easily, and its chief use is not for wear at the tea-table so much as for dinner alone with one’s family.  29
 It can, however, very properly be put on for tea, and if one is dining at home, kept on for dinner. Otherwise a lady is apt to take tea in whatever dress she had on for luncheon, and dress after tea for dinner.  30
 One does not go out to dine in a tea-gown except in the house of a member of one’s family or a most intimate friend. One would wear a tea-gown in one’s own house in receiving a guest to whose house one would wear a dinner dress.  31
Your tea-gowns, since they are never worn in public, can literally be as bizarre as you please.” Emily Post, 1922.

The tea gown would be used as we would use a robe to go to our kitchen and eat breakfast before getting ready for the day, or coming home from an event or work and wanting to relax by putting on pjs. Most people wouldn’t wear their pjs out of the house but it is ok to be seen in them by family and friends, same as with the tea gown. To our modern fashion sense they look very fancy but at the time were the last level of undress acceptable to be seen in during an informal, familial gathering.

okay I know that no one else really cares but I’m genuinely upset about Ichiya and him disappearing from everyone’s life because I’ll be damned if that man deserved to. He’s such an awesome dude despite his uh… quirks and omg can we just take a moment to appreciate him and mourn cause I’m so distraught like there’s tears everywhere. 

look at this man. He’s the epitome of perfection with his snaz snaz hair and constant sparkles. AND DO YOU SEE HIS LIL BOW TIE!!! HE’S ROCKING THAT LIL BOW TIE!! LOOK HOW FANCY HE IS! SO HANDSOME

THIS MAN!! LOOK AT HIM!! HE’S AMAZING!!!

HE SAVED FAIRYTAIL’S ASSES WITH HIS BOMB ASS SHIP!!!!!

AND LETS NOT FORGET WHEN HE SAVED THE THUNDER LEGION WITH HIS ALMIGHTY PARRRFUUUMMM!!!

AND THEN THIS MAN GIVES HIS LIFE TO SAVE THE GOD DAMN WORLD!!!!!!!! HE IS BEAUTIFUL!!! HE IS SO UNDER APPRECIATED AND I CANNOT DEAL WITH HIM BEING GONE!!! AND THIS PICTURE IS JUST ARGHHHHH!!! I LOVE HIM SM AND HE’S TOO BEAUTIFUL!!!

Is anyone else confused as to why Peters bedroom looks so completely different in that clip than it did in Civil War? It’s bothering me a lot more than it should be

prince in training

~3k, rated T

Sterek ficlet inspired by this: “i grew up not knowing i was royal and now i guess i’m heir to a throne and you’re the guy who’s supposed to be teaching me how to be royal bc i suck at it and oops we made out” au

This is kind of Princess-Diaries-ish. I know that’s been done before in this fandom (and thank god it has—it’s awesome), but I couldn’t help myself. Yay for self-indulgence!

*

Stiles thought the most annoying thing about suddenly being a royal heir to a small eastern European kingdom he’s never heard of would be the hyper-aggressive paparazzi, but he was dead wrong.

The most annoying thing is actually Derek Hale, the guy Stiles’ grandmother hired to teach Stiles how not to screw this up.

“Princes don’t chew with their mouths open, Stiles.”

“Princes don’t shove an entire fistful of curly fries in their mouths, Stiles.”

“Princes don’t wear pink-and-green plaid shirts from Target, Stiles.”

“Princes don’t slouch.”

They don’t slump, either, or yawn or sneeze or cough in public, or fist-pump, or drive beat-up old blue Jeeps, or wear bright colors, or rock out to the radio, or do anything fun.

Tonight’s ridiculous gothy DIY question: should I sew small weights (yes, fishing weights) to the bottom front of the lace dickies, or should I sew the fronts closed to about mid- sternum?

The problem, you see, is that I am busty enough that the bottom hem of the dickies rides up, and doesn’t lay smoothly under the tank top and lace dress. I suspect the solution is going to be the weights, because I don’t want to still have to safety pin it to the front of my bra.

FANCY SUMMERGOTH TIP: a fancy dickie (yes, really, that’s what they’re called, go ahead and snicker, get it out of your system) is a fast way to add an antique look to whatever dress/jacket/vest you may be wearing WITHOUT making yourself die of overheating. 

BONUS TIP: if it is really sweltering out, and you still want to look fancy, soak the back of the dickie in cold water. It will help cool you down as the water evaporates.
