Real hoe tips

Sore vag after sex? TUCKS pads. Can also be used for a sore butt hole after anal. Another total angel on here told me about this but I’ve forgotten who, I’m sorry, no credit to me for this!

Sore inside after sex? Chill a smooth, glass dildo in the fridge then insert it to ease discomfort.

Itchy vag or butt? Lidocaine gel. I get this from my doctor and use it for all sorts of stuff.

Ingrown hairs? Exfoliate the area before and after shaving. Wipe with witch hazel or tea tree oil.

Condoms leaving you raw feeling? Switch to latex free condoms. I swear.

Got a light period and still want to be a hoe? Use a CLEAN makeup sponge in there. I do this all the time on cam. You can buy natural sponges for this too.

Hair always fucked up after sex? I french braid mine to minimise the mess he can make of it.

How many of you use the makeup sponges/applicator on the left?
I did.

Every. Day.

I’d use at least one every day I put makeup on. I started to think about how many of these things I’ve thrown away over the years. How many were thrown away by people all over the world. It seemed so wasteful.

I started looking and found these silicone applicators on the right. You get three on Amazon for $9.99.

Not only can you wash these and use them over and over it also take a FRACTION of the amount of makeup because nothing soaks in. I would guess I use only a quarter of what I use to use.

I’m really happy with this product and I feel better that I’m wasting so much less in sponges and in makeup. If you use makeup I encourage you to check these out.
3/$9.99 …. You can’t go wrong.

All Too Well | Pt. 2

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8 | Part 9 | Part 10 | Epilogue

Summary: You and Yoongi shared a loving relationship with one another until you both agreed to end things and pursue your separate careers. But two years later, Yoongi is a member of the ever growing Bangtan Boys, and you are a new makeup artist for their upcoming tour.
Pairing: Yoongi | Reader

.

( 2 YEARS LATER )

There’s always a certain rush Min Yoongi gets before, during, and after every performance, no matter how often he participates in them and no matter how exhausted he might be from practices and dieting in the days, weeks before. One would think that after two years of nothing but strict scheduling, traveling the world, meeting fans like clockwork, he would have grown tired of free moments being such a rarity, constantly being busy and never getting to just relax and have a proper night’s rest.

But to Yoongi, it’s something he’s grown to appreciate. Yes, the scheduling is busy and tiring and there are often days when he would be filled with pure frustration over a simple inability to get dance moves down or turn hazy thoughts into song lyrics—but it’s a life that he would not give up for anything.

Because at the end of the day, he gets to do what he loves. He gets to make music and he gets the opportunity to really share them with people he knows would listen to what he has to say. He gets to meet hundreds, if not thousands of fans every month who take time out of their own busy, hard life to see him, let him know that his music reached them, touched them, made them feel something. And when he sees the shy smiles of his fans, their bright eyes and beautiful voices reaching out to him as they sing back song lyrics during one of his many concerts, it makes all those previous irritations and frustrations fade away to the back of his mind. Min Yoongi loves what he does, he really does.

He loves it, even as he’s clamoring backstage after Bangtan Boys has just finished one of three performances for their latest music show appearance, the cheers of success and the usual excitement following the rest of the boys as they rush quickly to get dressed in their new costumes for their new set list. Much like all the other performances, the air is plagued with adrenaline as the boys quickly disregard their previous attire. The stylists are rushing to get shirts buttoned, freshly pressed jackets on. Hair is getting retouched, eye makeup and foundation sponges are pressed against Yoongi’s face. In spite of the cheeriness that usually follows the boys after a successful music show performance, there is still the underlying chaoticness to get everyone ready in time for their next set. Moments like these are always messy, happening so quickly right before Yoongi’s eyes that he can never really keep track of the process.

And yet, Yoongi always feels that urgency, that rush, all with the smile never slipping off his lips because it’s almost been 2 years since Bangtan Boys experienced their debut, and every single day of his life still feels like some strange, out-of-body sensation. It still feels like a dream.

The Makeup Artist -/Fionn Whitehead Part 1.

-

Hi, it’s Tia! I apologise for not posting in a while, I’ve had major writer’s block and my life has just been hectic. I should have loads of imagines posted soon! 

I got this idea and I thought it would be perfect for a miniseries and for it to be about Fionn. The romance will happen soon, don’t worry! The first part was for you to get an insight and what not!

If you have some requests regarding Fionn, send them ‘here’.

Hope you enjoy. xx

The crisp air causes a crimson pigment to proclaim on the apples of your cheeks as you strolled down the street to get to your destination of the set for Dunkirk. You were lucky to grasp this job vacancy as it was a huge opportunity for your career in makeup. From the experience you had, you normally had to bring your own equipment. However, with this project being funded vastly, you were not required to bring any of your own possessions. Foremost, the actors also needed to illustrate all of their struggles and challenges through makeup (which would allow the acting to look more realistic): they had to look dirty and shiny. Not with fresh looking faces and with all of their blemishes covered up, no. They needed to look like someone had literally slapped them in the face with dirt.

Grasping onto the warm coffee cup, you started to see the set approach you. The hundreds of extras dotted around the beach front, already dressed in their costumes but faces looking fresh, not aesthetically suitable for the scene that would be filmed, shortly.

Nodding your head in a greeting manner every time you walked past one of the crew members, you walked to one of the makeup stations, situated at the top of the beach near the brick wall. You placed your back pack on the white plastic table and your latte next to it. Each of the makeup items had already been placed on the white tables in the tent, ready for usage.

The organisation for the makeup artists and stylists were that each makeup artist was given one of the listed characters (main characters) while the extras were just about working fast to get to each of them. There were over a dozen makeup artists on the set, which meant not all of them got one of the main characters, however, you were lucky enough to catch your grab on Harry, Harry Styles. Which when you found out you had Harry, you were bewildered. Surely, he would have someone more experienced or even his own personal makeup artists than little ole’ me?

Taking a large gulp of your drink, your eyes brightened at the sight of Harry and Fionn approaching your station. If you were to say you were a little bit more excited to see Fionn than Harry, would that be deemed wrong? Although over the time period of a couple of months of working on the set, you and Harry had become close, friend-wise that is, the boy is too disgusting to be seen as anything further. Even off set, with the limited time you do have off, you and Harry would go and adventure out together.

“Hi, Harry. Fionn..?” You trailed, knowing how hectic it was to get the characters looking dirty with the limited amount of time you had, so why was Fionn still looking fresh and cute? Not that the cute had any relevance, but…

“Oi, an’ where is my coffee,” Harry said with a slight huff, then finishing with a smirk.

“I’m your makeup artist Harry, not your assistant,” you joked back and motioned for Harry to sit on the chair so you could start the makeup application.

“Tha’s fine then, I’ll just have som’ of yours,” Harry smirked and grabbed your coffee cup and took a sip. With a huff and the roll of both of your eyes, you muttered that Harry could have the rest. Legitimately a child, he was.

“Oh, an’ Fionn is jus’ gonna hang here fo’ a bit, cause’ Sandra is busy sorting out Barry because one of the makeup artists called in sick,” Harry said, while intently watching you as you sorted all of the makeup that you would need specifically for Harry, as there were some extras that weren’t necessary.

“I may as well as do you as well, Fionn. That is, if I finish with Harry in enough time,” You replied, looking at Fionn as you spoke. A blush makes its way to your cheeks, but you are hoping loud mouth (Harry) wouldn’t pick up on that.

“You make that sound like a gang bang, love,” Harry smirked. A gasp escaped your mouth as you gently slapped Harry on the top of the head. A laugh erupted from Fionn, which caused you to smile.

“S'not nice is it,” Harry mumbled and then took another sip of your drink. You rolled your eyes before grabbing the extra chair and shuffled it closer to Harry so you could apply the makeup. Fionn had already situated himself on the extra chair and watched you apply the makeup.

“Gotta’ make you look like you’ve been beaten when I could do that without the makeup, with the way you are going with annoying me, I could give you two black eyes fo’ free,” you mumbled sarcastically as you dipped the makeup sponge in the brown pigmented makeup. Harry’s eyebrows scrunched up and pouted his lips.

“Told yah, Fionn. She bullies me,” Harry mumbled.

“Nah, mate, she’s fuckin’ funny,” Fionn replied causing your cheeks to explode in a redness. Harry’s eyes widened when he caught the eruption of crimson cover the apples of your cheeks.

“Oi oi…” Harry said with a smirk. You attempted to hide the ever-growing blush on your face by untucking the piece of hair behind your ear. You padded more of the brown pigment onto your sponge and dabbed it around Harry’s eye. At the same moment, Harry raised his eyebrows and tilted his head in Fionn’s direction.

“Stop it…” You mumbled and tried to focus on the makeup application. Once you were finished with Harry’s makeup, it was Fionn’s turn.

“Right, you’re done, mister. Fionn, it’s your turn,” you said while placing your items down and finding a clean-unused sponge. More so, making yourself look busy so you could avoid Harry’s teasing smirk. When you looked back up, Fionn was now sat on the chair and Harry sat where Fionn once was. You gave Harry a knowing look as he still needed his hair done, which only received a smirk and a shrug as a response.

After dabbing the right amount of makeup onto the sponge, you started applying it to Fionn’s face. The close proximity of the both of your faces made it incredibly hard for you to focus. Being this close to his face allowed you to see the intricate details of his face: from his freckles to his mole on his chin, to the beautiful green tint in his eyes.

Also at this very moment, Fionn was inspecting your intricate details: to how beautiful you looked with the minimal makeup you were wearing, to your plump cherry tinted lips that looked incredibly kissable.

To say that it was hard for him to compose himself was definite.

To say that it was hard for you to keep your professional conduct together was also a definite

You almost had to stop breathing because you were afraid of breathing in his face. That was how close you were to his face. What if your breath was bad? Had the Latte you had earlier affected the smell? Probably.

He almost had to close his eyes because all he could stare at was your lips. What if he accidentally kissed you? Would you have kissed back? Would it have made things incredibly awkward? Probably.

“It looks like you both are gonna’ kiss, wit’ how close you are,” Harry teased, causing you and Fionn to move away from each other abruptly. Fionn’s hand awkwardly rubbed the back of his neck, while you coughed to try and disguise your blushing.

“Um, yeah, you’re done Fionn,” you mumbled and placed the makeup down, refusing to look him in the eyes as you were too embarrassed.

“Uh, thanks, love,” Fionn replied and got up from his seat. One of the makeup artists approached the tent and explained how you were asked for, seeing as there were fewer hands with sorting the makeup out.

“I’ll see you two later, then. And, Harry you owe me a latte,” you said and waved goodbye. Once you collected all the makeup items you needed and was out of sight, Harry turned and smirked at Fionn.

“Now, I thought The Notebook was the most romantic thing I’ve seen, but damn, I was wrong,” Harry smirked.

“Shut up, Harry.”

“You should get her number, ask her out on a date. You both seem keen on each other,” Harry said while raising his eyebrows.

“She’ll just say no,” Fionn mumbled.

“Mate, Y/N was basically eye-fucking you, doubt she’ll say no,” Harry chuckled and patted Fionn’s shoulder, gesturing him to move, seeing as they were needed by their hair stylists.

“Let me work some magic and I’ll get you a date with her,” Harry said while putting his thumbs up.

“Oh dear god.”

What is your best makeup trick ?

F A C E:

  • Before applying any beauty products, hydrate your face with moisturizer. Don’t skip this step if you have dry skin.
  • Applying primer before foundation will even the surface of your skin, make your pores look smaller and your skin look smooth.
  • If you have combination skin, moisturize the dry areas and apply primer on the areas that get oily before applying foundation.
  • If you have a lot of red spots on your face, use color correcting concealers that come in mint green colors. Simply apply the product on the red areas using your finger or a makeup sponge and wait for it to dry, then apply foundation.
  • If your skin tends to get dry patches, exfoliate it at least once a week. It will remove dead skin cells and will make your skin smooth.    
  • When buying foundation, consider your skin type. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, choose foundations with oil-free formulas. If your skin is dry, opt for hydrating foundations. Foundations with hypoallergenic formulas are best for those whose skin is sensitive.
  • If your skin is dry, avoid matte foundations because your skin might end up looking flaky. Instead, look for products that have moisturizing and hydrating qualities.
  • When you’re in a makeup store and you’re trying to pick the perfect foundation shade, test if the shade is right for your skin tone by applying a little bit of it on your jawline. Don’t try to test if the shade is good for you by applying it on the back of your palm or your wrist because the skin tone of your hand differs from the skin tone of your face.
  • Does your foundation seem to look normal right after it’s applied but it changes its color/turns orange within an hour or when you go outside? It’s because it oxidizes, people with oily skin may experience this more often than those with other skin types. To prevent this, use a primer and stick to oil-free foundations. 
  • Once you’ve applied foundation, set it with powder. Makeup powders create a silky finish and minimize the look of pores and other small imperfections. It can also control face shine. If your face tends to get oily throughout the day, simply reapply the powder on the oily areas.
  • Does your makeup make your face look pale when you take pictures with flash? That’s probably because you’re using a foundation that is high in spf. To avoid this problem, avoid foundations that contain spf higher than 30.
  • Liquid highlighters are a lot more concentrated than powder highlighters; therefore, use them sparingly. 
  • Some people have a hard time blending out their contour. If you find difficulty with contouring kits, you can always use a foundation that’s a few shades darker than your skin tone as a contour. It is much easier to apply, especially if you’re a beginner.
  • Use translucent powder to prevent makeup transfer, it will set and mattify your makeup. A setting spray can also help you avoid makeup transfer.
  • Always clean your brushes after using them because they will transfer bacteria to your face, causing break outs.

E Y E B R O W S:

  • When doing your eyebrows, keep in mind that they should look shaded and soft, not like a straight, hard line. 
  • Before applying makeup on your eyebrows, brush them upward with a spoolie brush to enhance their shape. You can also enhance the shape of your eyebrows by slightly overdrawing them or applying eyebrow products on the sparse areas.
  • Always use products that match the color of your eyebrows; otherwise, they won’t look natural.
  • After you’ve applied eyebrow products, brush your brows with a spoolie brush to blend out the color and soften any harsh lines. You can also apply concealer to define them.
  • A clear eyebrow gel can be worn over an eyebrow pencil or powder to make those products last longer.
  • Are you trying to grow out your eyebrows? Forget about tweezing or waxing. It may take up to 15 weeks for your eyebrows to grow back fully so you have to be patient. While they’re growing back, you can use a tinted gel or a pomade to make your brows look more presentable.
  • Castor oil promotes hair growth so you can use it to make your eyebrow hair grow faster (you can use it on your eyelashes too).

E Y E S:

  • The easiest way to apply eyeliner is by tilting your head back and looking into the mirror. If you’re a beginner and it’s hard for you to apply the product, you can make dots along you upper lid and simply connect them. 
  • Does your mascara clump? Make sure that your lashes are clean before you apply it. If you apply mascara while still having some on from the night before, your lashes will most likely get clumpy. 
  • A blending brush should only be used for blending your eyeshadow. Don’t apply new eyeshadow with a blending brush, especially if it’s already been used because it’ll mess up your makeup.
  • Warm colors like browns and golds and shimmery shades complement brown hair and blue eyes the most.
  • Blondes with fair skin should choose shades like brown, bronze, silver, beige, gray and neutral shades.
  • You can prevent your eyeshadow from creasing by applying translucent powder. After priming your eyes, apply a little bit of translucent or loose powder on your eyelids using a powder puff or a sponge.
  • Fake eyelashes can be worn more than once. If you take care of them, they can last for a very long time. The first thing you need to do once you remove them is to remove the glue. You can do this by simply pulling at the glue until it begins to come off. It’s also important to clean the eyelashes with an oil-free makeup remover before you put them away. Keep your lashes in their original package to prevent them from collecting dust and bacteria. 

L I P S: 

  • If your lips are flaky, take a toothbrush and gently brush off the flakes. This will boost the circulation of your lips. You can apply some lip moisturizer after doing this to keep your lips hydrated.
  • Before applying your lipstick, use concealer to saturate the color of your lip lines and to make your lips look bigger. Apply it onto your lips and spread it a little over your lip line.
  • Overdrawing your lip line is the key in making your lips look bigger. Use a lip liner that matches you lipstick and apply it slightly outside the natural lip line. 
  • Apply some lip gloss on the middle of your lips to make them look fuller and plump.
  • Once you’ve applied lip products, apply concealer on the areas where you went over your lip line. 
  • Bright and deep lipstick colors compliment people with medium to dark skin the most. Try bright and deep reds, pinks, coral, shimmery peach lipsticks and lip liners.

You laid your makeup and makeup tools out on a table and giggled excitedly. After practically harassing him for months, Dean finally agreed to let you do a video where you try to put makeup on him. Admittedly, you weren’t a makeup artist but you considered yourself to be fairly decent. He wore makeup, but it was never much, only extending to BB cream, filling in his eyebrows, and occasionally some taupe brown eyeshadow.

Imagine #47 || Request #42

I am so sorry that I didn’t update faster, but here it is! It took me so long to write the other request because I didn’t know how to set the flow of them but here’s one I just finished now. Hopefully I’d be able to post more Brett imagines :) Sorry for any errors!

~~~

Your thoughts were in a daze at the sensation you were feeling as you sat on the kitchen counter with your legs enveloping Brett’s waist, one hand holding your waist as close as he could to his body while the other cupping the back of your head with his lips feverishly kissing yours.

“Brett,” you sighed against his lips making him growl and take your bottom lip in between his teeth and give it a small tug.

“Who were you with?” he asked, the tone of his voice surprisingly calm despite sensing the very obvious possessiveness he was giving off only a while ago when he opened the door to see you walking to the door of the house with another guy who graciously offered you and your friends a ride home. His lips now traveling away from your plump and pinker lips to your cheeks then down to your jawline, his nose was left tracing a line from your cheekbones and jaw bone as he descended further down to your neck.

“I-I was with my friends.” You stuttered getting distracted with a pair of lips that sucked just below your ear.

In all honesty, you really were with friends doing a last minute study just before one of your big final test that was going to be tomorrow. And based from the pace of relearning the lessons with your group of friends-who apparently get distracted just as easily as you, you knew that you’d be staying longer than expected. So you told Brett to go home without you even though he argued with you that he was fine waiting, but of course you won the argument telling him that he needed to rest for their big game against Beacon Hills Cyclones that was tomorrow as well.

Brett only hummed at your reply before you felt teeth that nipped your skin replace his soft lips, his hands now running down the sides of your torso down to your thighs-his hands massaging the inside of your thighs and pushing them further apart to get you even closer to him.

You knew that he wasn’t going to stop anytime soon so you tried to push him away to get to your things and browse through your notes one last time before retiring for bed, but of course Brett Talbot didn’t budge.

“Brett I have t-” you didn’t get to finish when you let out a small whimper and felt a small sting from where Brett’s mouth now hovered, his tongue licking at the mark he now left on your neck. Your fingers left claw marks on his back and shoulders while your legs wrapped around his waist, his chest rumbled a low growl at the sensation making him capture your lips once more in a needy kiss and scooping you in one swoop.

~~~

“Must you do it every single time?” you asked rather irritated while emphasizing the last 3 words, your hands dabbing on the compact with a makeup sponge before looking back up at yourself on the mirror and trying to blend and cover with as much concealer and foundation as you could on your neck.

“If I have to,” he said, both of his hands on your waist while watching you cover the patches of black, blue and purple around your neck-his lips momentarily placing a kiss to your temple and smiling triumphantly at his craft he left on you last night.

Turning you around, Brett leaned down and pressed his lips to yours making you forget about painting your neck to cover up the hickeys.

“You know,” you said once you pulled away with a smile, a small giggle erupting from you when you noticed that the color of his lips were now matching yours. “I’m glad I’m with a guy who wastes my lipstick more than my mascara.”

And my concealer and my foundation. You thought, remembering the love bites he left on you.

“Well I’m glad,” he replied once you were done with wiping his lips with the baby wipes on your bathroom counter.

Can you do a tutorial on contouring for costume/cosplay makeup? Either a photo post or video when you have the time! I wish to exit the realm of pancake faces

Certainly! Prepare to bid farewell to the pancake face! (Unless you are, in fact, cosplaying a pancake. I’m sure that’s a thing in some fandom.)

Contouring is a great technique to practice. It’s one of the easiest ways to make yourself look better in photos, as it adds depth and prevents flattening. It’s also the basis for a lot of character design makeup, as it allows you to change the appearance of your facial structure (making your face look thinner or wider, making cheekbones more dramatic, making eyes look sunken, etc.).

Full tutorial after the jump!

Hands of an Artist, Lips of an Angel

Part 1/3

Summary: “You’re the one person who can do my elaborate stage makeup, so every night you spend half an hour in close proximity to my face and I want to kiss you so badly.” Killian is an actor and Emma is his makeup artist.

This one-shot is inspired by the prompt above from @cs-prompts combined with Jen and Colin’s interview and spoilers at aTVFest.

Read: Part 2

~*~

Killian sat anxiously in his chair while his makeup artist made the preparations for the various makeup and brushes she would be using on him. Emma Swan was the only person who did his makeup flawlessly while at the same time, making it seem effortless. She made him the best looking Captain Hook there ever was, although it did help that she had a great canvas to work with.

“Ready for your makeup?” She asked him in a tone that was sweet and polite. He gave a nod and let out a long, shaky breath in anticipation. She picked a makeup sponge and leaned in to apply the foundation over his facial prosthetic. It never ceased to amaze him how unwavering her hands were and how she seemed to get lost in what she was doing.

During his six years of being a cast member of the television series ‘The Lost Boys’ he’d been through many makeup artists and was never satisfied with any of them. Emma had started off doing the makeup for Robbie, who played Peter Pan and Killian had witnessed and saw how talented she was and eventually requested Emma for himself. Now that Killian was wearing more elaborate makeup as an older version of Hook, it was crucial to have the right person for the job. Emma had made his facial prosthetic from scratch and was adamant about making every detail of his face look perfect. And it didn’t hurt that he had a work of art to look at while he sat and let her work her magic.

Hey I'm new to the idea of stim toys 'cos I'm newly diagnosed and I'd like to ask if you have any "starter" ideas for stim toys or ideas for squeezeable stim toys that give a bit of resistance when you squish them. Things not smelling or making noise is a big plus.

I see we have another stimming convert! Fabulous. Not that we’re trying to take over the world or anything…

Anon, I’ve got several posts that I consider Stim Toy 101, including posts on breaking down toys into categories and posts on the more popular fidget toys. I’ll list those, and then I’ll finish by listing the toys that I think fit your brief.

So. For anyone new to the wide and wonderful world of stim toys, here’s what I hope to be useful reading:

@wrennigan​‘s Chewable Comparison Post: a list that compares many Stimtastic chewables.

Household Stimmy Items: a list of readily available stimmy objects for folks who don’t have online access to conventional toys or need to be stealth in their stimming.

Subtle On-The-Person Toys: toys that are easily portable and less like to draw attention, also great for folks who need to be stealth.

Common Tactile Toys: a list of the most common tactile stim toys and how they’re used. This is a great post for “starter” toys, anon!

Categories of Stim Toys: things to keep in mind when building a varied stim kit.

My Stim Kit: an example of the kind of kit you might build.

Varying Your Stimming: why you should be a little mindful about your stimming, because you don’t want to end up with chronic pain or injury.

@whisperstims​‘s Stim Toy Hygiene Post: how to clean your stim toys.

DIY Stim Toy Master Posts, One and Two: lists of links to all sorts of tutorials for DIY toys. The degree of difficulty varies here: some tutorials and DIYs are easy, others require a bit of crafting experience.

Autistic Sellers and Crafters Post: a list of autistic stim toy store owners and stim toy crafters.

Now, we’ll move into the rec portion of the answer. Squishable, with resistance, but silent and scentless. All links go to our tags, because by now there’s several posts telling you where you can find the thing.

Squishies: available in a variety of resistances, very squishable, available many places online. Some of these are slow-rising, which mean they compress tightly and take time to expand; others compress less well. Some, like the mochi squishies, are rubbery and gel-like, but most are made from foam. The better quality squishies generally cost more, sadly; I’ve had good experiences with the SquishyFun brand, and I’ve heard good things about Areedy squishies as well. Unfortunately, many squishies are scented, and while some listings state this, many don’t specify scent, so buying these can be a bit of a risk.

Stress balls: usually made from foam, available in a variety of resistances (firmer than most squishies), silent. Most of these don’t have odours, but I recently bought some that did smell chemically. These are readily available in dollar shops and just about everywhere online.

Fabric or crocheted stress balls: weighted, good for crunching and scrunching, no scent, do make low noise as they contain weighted pellets and, sometimes, crinkle paper. The mesh fabric stress balls I have are quieter than the crocheted ones.

Grape or mesh stress balls: squishy, available in varying resistances, do make a slight slurping sound as the slime inside the ball moves.

Puffer balls and puffer creatures: very soft and squishy, but the majority of them have a chemical-rubber scent that I can’t bear. This said, I own one ball from a dollar shop that has no odour, and the puffer worms I smelt at Sensory Oasis for Kids have no odour, so they do exist. This one, I think, is very much a try to find in person item because of the risk of bad smells, but they are available in many dollar and toy shops.

Wool stress balls and wool dryer balls: soft woolen balls that you can squish in your hand. No smell, no odour but that of wool unless you add scent - just a wool ball you can squish or tear.

Makeup blending sponges: a teardrop or hourglass shape sponge, generally medium resistance, great for squishing. No scent or sound, just a lovely fine-spongy texture. I’ve seen them from most dollar and department stores starting at $3-$4 AUD, but the brand name sponges are absolutely not needed for stimming.

(Many sponges in general are good for squishing, and if you like rough textures, check out this ask for a few more rough-textured sponges that are squishable.)

Disney mini Tsum Tsum plush: no scent, very squishable, lots of great textures, a small amount of sound if you press the small pocket of weighted pellets in the plush’s belly (above the strip of faux suede used as the toy’s base).

Thinking Putty and TheraPutty: one of the firmest items here, if you like a lot of resistance when squishing, but Thinking Putty does tend to crack and snap when moulded. It’s not constant, so it’s like a crack here and a snap there, but know that it does. TheraPutty makes no noise at all. No scent for either, unlike most putties and doughs.

I hope that gives you somewhere to start, anon. If you have any more questions, please ask away!
