Getting to help stitch up a cheetah @ethicaltaxidermy is mounting for the Booth Museum! This cheetah died of abscess in her spine and jaw back in 1980, and has been sitting in a barrel in the museum ever since. Her skin is tough and brittle, as she is been in formaldehyde for 30 years - but she is looking good. So very soft too.
I don't think Ariana is trying to look like a POC. She looks like she has golden skin like a nice tan you would get on a vacation somewhere really hot. I have pale skin and I would love a tan but I can never tan, only tanning solution would work. Maybe she hated her pale skin and wanted a nice tan or she likes the olive skin that many Italians have. I'm Italian myself and I would love olive skin, it's so pretty!! I think she looks orange and darker in some pics because of lighting tbh.
