not sure if i should use that last tag

anonymous asked:

hi, do you have a post about binding safely? I want to show my mom so she can see that it's not unsafe if you do it right. thanks!

I did try my best to make a comprehensive but not too long Binding 101 post here - and one that can hopefully be read and understood by people who don’t bind & have no desire to bind themselves, at that!

Of course this post won’t include everything, but it should hopefully cover most of the basics. It may not be exactly what you were looking for though, because even when done safely, binding is not ever completely danger-free.


Why do people bind their chest?

There’s more than one reason to bind, of course, but the most common one among trans people is physical gender dysphoria.

The feeling of disconnect or dislike towards a part of your body can be hard to explain in word sometimes, especially since many people experience it in very different ways. But it is a feeling that is draining, that is painful, and that can do tremendous harm to a person’s mental well-being.

So, binding one’s chest in order to hide these parts of our bodies, both from ourselves and from others, can be a hugely relieving and freeing thing. And something that makes life so much more bearable and enjoyable.

How do people bind their chest?

There are many different ways to bind your chest, some more dangerous than others.

Ace bandages (and any other brand of similar bandages) and tape are a no-go if you want to keep yourself safe while binding. They are capable of messing you up pretty seriously even if you only bind with them for a very short time.

Some safer DIY options could be [sewing your own binder from scratch], [making one out of a camisole], [making one out of a pair of tights] or making one of out shapewear underwear [link 1] + [link 2].

However, the best option is to get a binder that is professionally made. [gc2b] is a company that makes binders specifically for trans people and it is where I have got my binders from, but [Underworks] is another popular place that a lot of people buy from. And of course there are many more aside from those two.

Wearing one (1) high compression sports bra in your right size can also be one way to bind you chest. Although keep in mind that they are not designed to be work for longer periods of time and that the lower band of it will put a lot of focused preassure on your ribs (while a binder will distibute it more evenly). Wearing multiple sports bras on top of each other, or wearing ones that are too small for you, is not safe.

When should you not bind your chest?

There are numerous medical conditions that could make binding very unsafe, so if you worry binding may trouble you for those reasons, it could be a good idea to talk to your doctor about it.

I personally have asthma and that makes binding a bit more dangerous for me than for non-asthmatic people, as my breathing is already a bit worse than it should be. So further restricting it by binding is something I would like to avoid doing, which is part of the reason I am working towards getting top surgery to have my breasts removed. Still, the possible dangers of binding are still worth it for me when I weigh them against the certain mental suffering that comes from not binding.

Even for people without medical issues though, there are times when you should not be wearing your binder:

  • When you sleep.
  • When you exercise*.
  • When you have already worn it for 8 hours**.
  • If you’re new to binding: when you are alone***.

*Some companies like Underworks sell [binders specifically made for swimming] and [gc2b have said that their binders are ok to swim in too]. You should still be very careful when swimming in a binder though, as it does restrict your breathing and movment a bit. And be sure to wash the binder you swim in regularly, as having chlorine left in it can irritate your skin.

**The given maximum of binding hours per day in one go is 8. But everybody’s body is different, so not everyone can safely bind for that long. Personally I can usually only manage 6 hours before my ribs start to hurt pretty bad. And it’s best to not start with trying to go for the 8 hours limit right away when you get your first binder; it’s better to start binding for a smaller amount of time in the beginning and the gradually increase it over time, to allow your body time to adapt to it.

***Binders can be difficult to get out of on your own sometimes, especially in the beginning when you haven’t yet figured out the best way to do it. So in the beginning, it is best to only bind when you have other people around that can help you out of your binder in case you would need help getting it off.

How do you take care of your binder?

Binders will get worn out over time, just like any other piece of clothing. However, it may be more noticable in binders than in regular clothes, as their compression ability will visibly get worse and worse the more worn out it gets. Getting a new binder about once a year is usually recommended, but it really depends on how much you wear it.

You should wash your binder regularly. Doing this might actually help it last longer, depending on the style of it.

Some have tags that say they are machine-wash safe, in which case you could absolutely wash them that way. But personally I always handwash mine, just to make sure they’re not unnecessarily damaged.

I use a small amount of mild detergent and cold water. Spend a lot of time rinsing it out afterwards with just water, to make sure there is no, or at least no big amount of, detergent left in it. Then I carefully scrunch it up into a ball to get as much water out as possible (don’t twist, because you don’t want to stretch the fabric) and then hang it on a hanger over the bathtub to let it drip and dry completely overnight.

For the style of binder I have (the gc2b ones), washing it regularly in cold water helps the fabric retain some of its elasticity. Which is something that can help it bind better for longer.

It may be ideal to wash it after everytime you’ve worn it and sweated in it, to prevent it from irritating your skin, but washing it just once a week is enough if you can’t do it more often than that.

What are the dangers of binding your chest?

Binding will inevetably wear out the elasticity of your skin and the breast tissue in your chest area after a while. How long it takes varies from person to person, as everybody’s body is different. But you will likely notice some difference within the first year if you bind a lot. This has little to no known actual dangerous side-effects in itself, but it will make your chest sag more and may affect how the result of top surgery looks if you plan on getting that in the future, as well as affect what types of surgeries you can get.

Even safe binding will likely give you some aches in your ribs, back and shoulders. But it is still best to take your binder off and give your body a break once you start feeling pain.

Excessive and unsafe binding comes with a lot of dangers:

  • Difficulty breathing, which can lead to fainting and, if binder is not removed, suffocating.
  • Extremely irritated skin.
  • Damaged (bruised, sprained, brokwn) ribs.
  • Damaged ribcage.
  • Damaged lungs (if punctured by a broken rib).
  • Damaged spine.

These things can usually be avoided as long as you bind safely, however.

How do you know if the pain/side-effects you get from binding is normal or not? When should you be worried?

Listen to your body and learn to interpret its signals. Everyone has different pain thresholds and everybody’s body has different limits, after all. So you will need to learn your own.

But some general signs and side-effects, normal and not, are as follows:

Normal:

  • Sore arms, shoulders, neck and/or back. This soreness may linger for a a couple of hours after you take the binder off, or not show up until the day after. It should go away completely after 2 days without binding.
  • Getting a bit out of breathe after having climbed a set of stairs or similar. Although you should still be able to catch your breathe again without too much difficulty.
  • Some chafting under your arms.
  • Increased chest and back acne.
  • Slight anxiety caused by feeling restricted.

Not normal, take the binder off as soon as you can and see a doctor if the symptoms don’t go away within a couple of days:

  • Difficulty breathing, especially if even after you’ve taken the binder off.
  • Not able to take deep breathes, cough or sneeze.
  • Sharp pain in chest or ribs.
  • Lightheadedness, feeling like you’re about to faint.
  • Losing vision, having your ears ringing or getting a tingling sensation in your fingers, even if just for a moment. (Often signs that you are about to faint.)
  • Feeling too sore/too restricted/too tired to do everyday activities that you could do without problems before you started binding.
  • Numbness in arms.
  • Bruising.
  • Skin rashes.
  • Nausea during or after binding.

Not normal, go see a doctor as soon as you can, could be signs of a serious injury:

  • Any of the symptoms from the list above, if you are feeling very worried about them. Better safe than sorry.
  • Not able to breathe at all.
  • Blueness in your libs or fingertips.
  • Fainting.
  • Sudden intense bursts of claustrophobia and/or panick attacks, especially if you do no get those when not binding.
  • Noticable change in ribcage shape.

Wow, that’s a lot of dangers. Is it really worth it?

For many people, including me: yes.

Like I said in the beginning, there are many reasons for why people bind. But mine is dysphoria, so that is the only thing I can talk about here.

Dysphoria is not a joking matter. It is often a very intense and painful kind of suffering. And taking these risks is often still better than having to deal with the dysphoria that we have when we are not binding.

This may be difficult to understand if you are not dysphoric yourself. But please try to understand that people would not knowingly be taking these risks if we didn’t feel like we needed to.

When We Collide (Part 13)

Pairing: Assistant!Y/N/CEO!Luke

Rating: NC-17

Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12

Summary: He is the definition of high class smart ass, swimming in Dom Pierre Pérignon champagne and has never seen the shadow of poverty. She is underprivileged, lives in a messy dorm room on sale and struggles working as an assistant after being thrown out of college. But how will they collide when Luke makes Y/N pregnant after a drunkenly one night stand?

When We Collide on Wattpad

“Okay I know by the circumstances that it will most probably be hard but try to act as cool as possible-,”

“Oh my god, is that freaking Jennifer Lawrence?” Nicole blurted out loud with such wide eyes they were ready to pop out, making Luke almost want to smack his head in reaction.

Your eyes widened as well but it was in a mix of surprise, shock and confusion at the same time. The cameras flashing from the paparazzi were so harsh you were sure you would turn blind seconds from now.

Wow, I can’t believe that Jesse McCree and Hanzo Shimada are on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. They personally came out of the game and told me themselves, and asked me to pass the information along to everyone else. You heard it here, first, folks!

All joking aside, don’t let people tell you “straight is the default” or that McHanzo is somehow trash. I mean, my name is Trash, I think I should therefore be the judge of all things trash, which McHanzo is certainly not. I know there was someone in the tags being super homophobic earlier and we had quite a few people let us know about it, so my suggestion would be to block them and make sure their anger/hatred falls on deaf years. There’s no place for that in the community and hopefully that’ll be the last piece of hate we see for a while.

Also, we should fill the tag with really positive things! Headcanons, AU ideas, comforting messages to our fellow shippers. It’ll be a nice way to make the tag welcoming again and to help everyone feel better after seeing the hate.

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips on coloring/shading? i can do flats but then when i want to do lighting or shading it just looks bad and i dont know what to do

Sure! Here are a few tips:

(1) Look at the reference photo. Notice where the light is coming from. If you’re not going off a reference photo then decide where you want the light to be coming from.

There are places on the face where the shading will usually be: under the chin, under the nose, around the curve of the nose around the eyes, directly under the lips, and above the eyelid.

Likewise, there are places where light reflects: tip/curve/bridge of the nose, eyelids, above the lip, above the eyebrow, jawline, and cheekbones. 

If you’re trying to figure out how to shade and you’re not using a reference try to study some photos with similar facial positions to give you an idea of where you should be placing your shadows and how the light is gonna interact.

anonymous asked:

ok but,,,,,,, puh LEASE make a lil tutorial how u make backgrounds because?? theyre so good?

Oh thank you! Also…oh boy.
I’m pretty sure I’m the last person who should make drawing tutorials, but I’ll try to explain how I draw as best as I can and maybe also share some tips that help me with the process.

1) Don’t be afraid of backgrounds! You can do it! It does not have to be perfect or super realistic. Have fun!!

2) References! I draw a lot of fanart so it’s not really a problem to get good references for a background. I usually go in game and take several screenshots which I use as an inspiration. I have a folder full of environmental screenshots from various games. I like to use these as references, because they are much simpler than real life photos and I don’t get overwhelmed by details. 

3) Don’t try to draw an exact copy of your reference, though. It can get tiring really fast and it won’t get you nowhere. We are not doing a study after all. Modify it, use it as inspiration, combine several photos together. If there’s something that is too much of a headache to draw, ignore it and just draw something different instead. As you can see on the picture above, I did not draw the road. I wanted to, but it looked weird and the perspective was completely wrong so I erased it and drew grass in its place.

4) I use only one brush for everything. I fell in love with hard rectangle-shaped brush few months ago and I’m never going back. I’m not a big fan of texture brushes and I paint everything by hand with this basic one. It does not look realistic, but it fits my drawing style, so I’m quite ok with it.

5) Use different sizes of your brush. It helps to create the texture. Don’t lower the opacity too much. Also eraser can be your friend. 

6) I just paint the background directly with colours. I start with simple shapes, just to get the general idea of the background and then I add more and more details as I go.

7) Don’t give up if your background does not look good after the first few brush strokes. Keep drawing! <3

Wolffe’s Scars (one of my fave endings tbqh)

“The only thing that allowed me to live with myself after 66 went out,” Wolffe whispered into the quiet of the room, “was when I saw his ship go down, I could hear him in my head. Like he used the last of his strength to make sure I knew.”
“What did he say?” Gregor asked, genuinely curious.
Wolffe replied while hearing its echo rattle around in his head, “‘I forgive you, my son.’”

Sucker Punched 

Atin smiled at Sev as they walked off, “Fuckin’ ARCs, man.”
Sev just shook his head, “Fuckin’ ARCs.”

What is a name?

“Fives! Fives, brother.”
Rex’s voice sounded strange coming through through the ray shield. It was all warped and didn’t sound like Rex at all. Though, that may have been the ringing in his ears, and the pain radiating from his chest. Fives was glad that Rex was the last person he would ever hear say his name. Rex was a good brother. They had seen a lot together. Hopefully Rex would heed his warning. Hopefully Rex would remember him, and remember who he was. He was Fives.

Black Holes and Lost Time

After a moment Jesse moved his arm to wrap around Kix’s waist, and kissed his temple, “Come on, let’s see what we can do to be useful again.”
Kix shifted so he could put his arm around Jesse’s shoulders, “Yes, let’s.”

A Gentle Awakening

He stood there, at the edge of the field, until the last flame went out. Until the heavy black smoke cleared. Heavy and dark as he felt. He wished he could clear his mind as the smoke cleared the sky.
Rex turned from the field, the field of his brothers, and never came back.

Almost forgot, but we’ll be tagging things as “NSFR” (Not Safe for Ramadan) for our Muslim followers! Ramadan begins May 27 and lasts until June 24, so for those out there who also want to be respectful of this religious holiday, be sure to tag all your posts that involve food, drinking, or partial/full nudity! 

And if you guys notice that we forget to tag something as “NSFR,” please let us know! Sometimes tagging things slips my mind if I’m in a hurry or not paying attention. If you notice something should probably be tagged “NSFR” then you can IM us or shoot us a quick message through the ask box! :D

canadianwheatpirates  asked:

hey, passing question about ao3 etiquette if you don't mind? I have a thing which has a character appearing to die and then turning up unharmed in the next chapter: should I still tag that major character death? not sure whether it's polite to do so (it's a character who died in canon, so I expect people to be a bit wary of it, which is fair; could be seen as misuse of the tag though) or to not and just mention in the tags that the last two chapters have a super deathy vibe, or what. thoughts?

Well. You can tag it as a major character death, but you might get people to drop it. I’ve seen things like "presumed character death” or “major character death, but not really” before. Depends on whether you’d rather spoil the chapter or not turn people away, I think?

Personally, I hate being slapped in the face with death things. It doesn’t mean I won’t read it, but I have to have some kind of warning first.

I don’t think anyone will complain if you use the major character death tag though, tbh, because it sounds as if your other characters are going to act like they have. If from their POV someone dies, it’s accurate, even if it’s temporary. Which is why “super deathy vibe” is also probably an accurate tag lol

Heyo Kagamination! The 100 Kagamine Collaboration team proudly presents:

The 100 Kagamine Birthday Collaboration 2016!

That’s right! We’re back for the 3rd year in a row, reuniting all of Kagamine Rin and Len fans through yet again a massive 100 collaboration featuring these two yellow singing angels!

If you are new to the project, you can view our previous birthday collaborations as examples in 2014 and 2015.

The aim of this collaboration is to recruit 100 artists to draw various versions of the Kagamine(s) as a pair stated in a list where Kagamine songs, modules from Project DIVA and costumes from Project mirai, alternate outfits, CD jacket art etc. are compiled. You could view this year’s list here ((we made a new page dedicated to it complete with images and links to the videos YAAAAS

And finally, everyone’s drawings will be compiled onto a huge canvas as one piece and will be uploaded on Rin and Len’s birthday (Dec 27th). But do remember this is a first come first serve basis, so be quick! We’re now looking for more great artists who can make this project a success!

More information under the cut!

Some General Rules

  1. The artwork MUST have both of the Kagamine(s) in them, and ONLY the Kagamine(s).
  2. Each participant has to draw them both on a vertical 600x850px canvas. We do not accept artwork drawn on a horizontal canvas.
  3. The deadline is December 20th. Please make sure you make time or have the time to submit your entry to avoid last minute dropouts!
  4. Full-bodies only! This means no chibis, headshots, bust ups etc. The best example(s) on how your artwork should look like is by looking at our previous final collaborations.

                    Lilo's Ohana Network

Tumblr’s first 100% Lilo and Stitch network! A free environment to talk about Lilo and Stitch and Nani and David and Jumba and Pleakley and the other beautiful characters in this series. Plus!!!!! You’ll make friends, get reblogs on things you post (Lilo and Stitch things or selfies because you’re beautiful) and help with whatever you need help with!

Rules to join:

  • Must be following the one and only Lilo Pelekai.
  • Reblog to be considered! Liking doesn’t count, sorry.
  • Must love this stupid movie about cute Hawaiian girls and crazy aliens
  • (Optional) Fill out this really really short form

What I’m looking for in members:

  • Nice blogger!!!!
  • Quality posts
  • Maybe make gifs/graphics but doesn’t matter
  • All I care about is that you love Lilo and Stitch tbh

Other stuff:

  • I’ll be choosing 6-8 members after my last AP exam is done (May 13th)
  • Make sure you track the tag #lilosohana to get updates and stuff!!!
  • If you don’t have a skype you should get one!!! I’d like to do group chats on skype from time to time (but if you’re not comfortable sharing yours we could always use tinychat or something idk I haven’t really thought all of this through)
  • Aloha friends 。◕ ‿ ◕。
