hey could you explain the Bell & Clarke blue/tan shirt thing?
Hey anon! Sorry I’m replying to this so late, I just wanted to make sure I was able to think of a good answer for you.
I think a lot of it has to do with them being two sides of the same coin. And their shirts swapping colors runs throughout the entire series, not just s1 and s4. Like really. I was looking through old stills and they both literally only wear tan or blue with rare color changes in between
For reference, here’s a pic from Clarke in s1:
Tan shirt. and s2:
Blue shirt. And bellamy also wears a blue shirt in s2 (and s1 but we all already know that):
And he wears tan in s3:
I also found one more thing that I thought was interesting. The only times they wore anything but their colors (blue and tan), was when bellamy wore the mt. weather guard’s uniform (white)
And when Clarke started wearing black at the end of s2
and throughout s3
But then she’s right back to blue in s4
Look for yourself in other pictures even. Besides maybe a few times, they are always wearing these same colors and I don’t think it’s a coincidence. The fact that they swap them could also mean that they’ve really gone through everything together. They share most of the same burdens and completely understand and empathize with each other. It’s almost as if it’s an unspoken “i know you”
But really, you shouldn’t take my word for it. I honestly have no experience in costume or makeup in a field like this so please, if anyone else feels like they want to add something, feel free to do so.
Hey guys. I haven’t posted in quite a while, so I thought I’d tell you why.
Aside from the semester change leaving me with tougher courses, I also had some… drama.
In case any of you guys didn’t know, I’m gay. I’m gay and very much in love with this beautiful girl: @green-love-paternoster and love girls and women and females.
Well it turns out some people don’t like that. While I’m uber super dooper gay on Tumblr, I’m pretty chill in my day to day life. I’m scared of persecution (lol I live in a small town that has a population of 5000 and somehow still has 9 churches while only having 1 library) so I tone down the pride and rainbows and glitter. Anyway, word got out that I’m gay around the time I had mustered up the nerve to wear my rainbow earrings to school.
Long story short, I finally understand what bullying feels like. I’ve been shoved, been called names (“rugmuncher” seems to be the most popular. Although “filthy fucking dyke” is pretty popular as well) and recently a 6"2 guy swung at me and laughed in my face when I flinched. It’s been pretty stressful and I’ve been somewhat drained.
Now I’m not only telling you this story because I’ve been gone. I’m also telling you because tomorrow is February 22nd. February 22nd is Pink Shirt Day. It is a day that students from all over wear pink in a show of solidarity against bullying. With all that’s going on right now, it seems a little act of unity is needed. Please don’t ignore this. As someone going through this right now, seeing everybody out in pink (doesn’t have to be a shirt, you can just wear ribbons on your wrists or nail polish… whatever you have) doesn’t just show the bullies you stand with the victims, it showed US your unity. And sometimes that’s all the strength we need.
Please wear pink tomorrow, and spread your solidarity. Together we’re stronger.
