or the shape of my face

And here’s Anya’s twin! Sorry this took so long but! Better a little late than never!

[Transcript of my writing below in case you can’t read it]

* Name: Foxglove “Fox” Maddox
* Age: 19
* Bday: July 28th
* Gender: male (he/him)
* Ethnicity: Cuban, welsh/white
* Nationality: American (lived in wales as a young child, does not have a bit of an accent like Anya).
* Appearance: between 5’ 6" and 5’ 7", lean (in p good shape, but not particularly strong), medium-dark skin tone (warm undertones), large scar on back going from his right shoulder to his left hip, freckles and beauty marks on him face + body, neck length wavy brown hair (often tied up in some way or another), very dark brown eyes, medium sized round nose (slightly turned up), medium-thick brows
* Clothing: ?? Tbh I agonized over this for like an hour and kept coming up blank, so for now this is just. Up for interpretation I guess?


Note: my original idea for clothing was like. Hip hop dance clothes, and when I was looking up examples of that, I came across a picture with someone posing like the picture on the right so. Enjoy Fox in a probably v out of character pose (I haven’t really decided what his personality is yet)

(part 1/2) I am so glad I found your blog!! Atm this is where I stand. Childhood was a very typical 'trans guy' childhood y'know like wishing i'd wake up as male (i used to legit wish on a star before sleep) boy clothes, boy friends, all that jazz. i'm now in my teens and identify as a lesbian, and while i don't feel like a boy, i do feel uncomfortable with: my period, lack of body hair, lack of masculine features such as face shape, hips, legs, hands, etc, VERY (dysphoric?) about my chest,

(part 2/2) like i bind every single day and my gender expression is 101% masculine. I literally don’t know what to do/think. i even put coconut oil on my face to attempt to grow a little bit of hair on my face. :( i’m really confused. do u have any advice?

First of all, as someone who used to bind all day every day, I can guarantee you it isn’t helping. The more you do it the more you get used to seeing yourself with a flat chest and the more it feels wrong when you don’t bind. My chest dysphoria got so much better when I stopped binding but I had to wean myself off of it. I started by spending as much time without a binder on at home as I could manage, then I’d go on short outings without a binder on with a friend/friends who understood and would be cool if I freaked out and needed to go home and get a binder on.

As far as your period goes, it’s helped me a lot to use a menstrual cup. It allows me to totally not think about it for up to eight hours at a time. But some people have problems with any sort of penetration so I’d suggest trying some different ways of managing it and seeing if any of that helps.

Some of your desires aren’t necessarily bad things to try to change. Body building may help you get control of your shape while also helping you connect with your body in a more positive way.

Some of it just comes with time. Radical acceptance of your body is possible but it takes a lot of hard time and work. Tell yourself you love your body, even if you don’t. Every time you think a thought, it strengthens the neural pathway that leads to that thought. It makes it easier to think that thought in the future. This works in reverse, too. The less you think about the things you dislike about your body, the more those neural pathways atrophy.

Focus on things you love about your body and not just what it looks like. Your body carries you through life. What else does it do for you? What can it do that you appreciate?

As an addition, here’s some survey results I gathered from dysphoric people not currently transitioning. The percentage by each method is how many people found it effective in relieving dysphoria:

Good luck. You can do this. You can learn to live in your body.

Maybe they’re right. That I’m not that beautiful that can catch everyone’s eye in just a split second. I’m not that intelligent that could easily pass challenges. I have that face that won’t attract most of the people. I don’t have those perfectly shaped body. In short, I won’t really be your first choice. But one thing I am sure of is that I can make you happy with the simple things. I would make you the happiest for your smile is the only picture I’d want to see. And I will love you with all my might. No matter how hard it gets, I will not get tired making you feel the love you deserve.

Apparently this needs to be said

No, I don’t let my animals on my food. This doesn’t happen. No, I don’t feed my animals human food except my dog the occasional French fry/pizza crust.

Yes, Paisley had a little stuck shed. No, it was not on her head for more than a few seconds past me noticing it. If you follow my blog, you’ll know my two ball pythons were in extremely poor shape when I got them. Covered in mites, wouldnt eat, dehydrated. They both have almost full sheds now, but I have to check them post shed to make sure there isn’t a piece stuck, like the piece on her face. Which I removed post photo. They’re gaining weight and all in all, in a better place.

I’ve had reptiles 21 years, longer than most of you have been alive. I’m not saying I’m an expert, but I’ve had everything from turtles, to chameleons, snakes, skinks, anoles, and in between. I’m responsible.

Don’t attack me. I will not tolerate it. I’m an adult. You should try it sometime.

practicing a new style! ; w ;

OtaYuri: Physical Ideals

Originally posted by rouge-cerise

I feel like Otabek has the aesthetic that Yurio likes. Otabek is effortlessly dangerous, punkish, and badass. Not to mention JJ is impressed by him and Otabek can shut JJ up in a few words without getting worked up.

 He rides a motorcycle, wears a leather jacket and sunglasses, and has a really collected/cool persona. Yurio, for most of his life off-ice, has been trying to emulate that type of ideal through his personality and fashion.

Additionally, Otabek is ridiculously masculine and strong. His facial structure, body shape, and voice is also very bold and sexy.

CHECK THOSE FUCKING PECTORALS

Physically, he is a contrast of Yurio, but also acts as Yurio’s ideal. I mean, my cat son wanted to skate to “eros” and the idea of eros/masculine and mature sexiness appealed to him but he really had none of those qualities (which isn’t a bad thing, by the way). BTW, check Mila and Sara’s fangirl faces seeing Otabek skate. Otabek is conventionally attractive/sexy. 


On the other hand, Yurio has the aesthetic Otabek likes. Otabek has always been impressed by grace. Yurio has both of those qualities (that he probably doesn’t even notice). Otabek’s most prominent memory of Yurio was when he was in the graceful, resembling a first arabesque, position at the ballet barre.

Graceful beauty and flexibility was and is something foreign and difficult for Otabek to express. In turn, Otabek admires these qualities in others. And who, other than Yurio himself, fully embodies such ideals, to the extent that he does, in YOI?

TDLR: Yurio and Otabek are each other’s physical ideals and complete the physical aesthetics that both want but don’t have. Mental ideal meta coming soon!

things some girls do that are cute

-scrunch up their nose when they smile/laugh

-long hair: put in ponytails. bonus if the ponytail bounces

-curly hair: just cute no matter what ?? 

-short hair: b e d h e a d

-running a hand through their hair absentmindedly when they’re thinking

-also having short hair but it’s kind of grown out past its shape so their hairs just really floppy

-wear clothes that are too big and the sleeves go over their hands

-flannel shirts

- b l u s h i n g

-get really excited about things they like and their whole face lights up when you mention it

-being happy

-love their pets a lot

-squint when doing makeup like it’s the most complicated thing ever because tbh it is

-sing/hum under their breath thinking no one can hear

-love their friends a lot

- ;) 

girls are such a blessing oh my g o d

very important things

look at this eyebrow diversity

we’ve got JJ, who’s eyebrows are in your face in a Totally Hetero, “Of course I don’t get them done, these are naturally perfectly shaped” way. no they’re not stop lying 

We’ve got “no nonsense eyebrows” for a no nonsense Otabek. 

Chris has luscious eyebrows, styled to perfection, because eyebrows are all a part of the sex appeal, darling. just please don’t come on the ice this time Chris there are CHILDREN WATCHING

Yuuri’s eyebrows are On Point, my personal fav, 10/10. 

Phichit’s eyebrows scare the living daylights out of me here, but no one is surprised when you have Ciao Ciao as your eyebrowspiration. ALSO CIAO CIAO YOUR EYEBROWS ARE TERRIFYING PLEASE CONTROL THOSE THINGS. 

Yurio’s eyebrows are thin and angry looking, just like our favorite smol angry kitten. 

Alright, thanks for acknowledging this v. important PSA. I’m going to go watch Ep. 10 for the millionth time now. 

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips for trying to make cat faces more diversified, but also like... cat faces? ;0;

im not the best to ask on this bc my cat faces aren’t like super different from each other ( @murder-cats is really good at this tho!!) but i can give it a try

a really easy way is to change your face shape (this is the face structure w/o fur)

i tend to use the top 3 most but there are dozens of shapes you can come up with

try and think about the shape of your features too. are the ears tall and sharp? are they small and round? are the ears close together or far apart? how long is the muzzle? how big is their nose? what shape are their eyes?

and obviously the biggest one is fur. do they have a anime hair tuft? what shape is their face fur? are they scruffy and unwashed or clean and silky?

ok but imagine if Lysandra got pregnant
(as herself… i’m pretending the ending of eos didn’t happen okay)
and when her child first opens its eyes, she remembers.
she remembers the color of her true eyes.
because her child looks just like her.
as her child grows, Lysandra will begin to gradually transform back into her true self. 
it’ll be the curve of their cheekbones.
it’ll be the tawny color of their skin.
it’ll be the way their dark hair curls. 

she will remember. 
she will be herself once again.
and she will no longer be trapped in another’s body.

Hello 2017

Wearing  ✶  Lime Ricki Daisy Bralette and Daisy Ruched Bottom  ✶  Wotoos star shaped face tattoos 

It’s the first day of 2017 and warm enough already for a little splash in the pool! The beginning of the year is also fraught with the traditional onslaught of diet and weightloss ads in every corner you look, so I thought it would be timely to post some positive inspiration to help counter the toxicity that us fatties are routinely assaulted by around this time. The moment the year turns around, you see it screaming it you from billboards, newspapers and even browser ads. ‘New year, new you!’ ‘Resolve to be a skinny minnie this year!’ ‘Time for a liquid diet “cleanse” after that gluttonous Christmas!’ Well, here I am in my daisy print bathers, with stars on my face and unflattering curves everywhere else and I haven’t made a new year resolution to lose weight since the year 2007.

It hasn’t been easy all the way, fending off well meaning advice from acquaintances and relatives, and having to tune out friends unloading their weightloss plans onto me. Thankfully, and mostly because I’ve been doing it for so long, this sort of selective vision and hearing comes as second nature to me. But when the lovely folks at Lime Ricki swimwear asked me if I’d like to try out one of their swimsuits and talk a bit about feeling body confident as a fat woman, I realised that it would actually be helpful to share my tips for keeping sane and preserving your mental health (and confidence) in this month of weight based penance (ugh!)

1. Take out the trash

By which I mean the glossy magazines promising miracle ‘cures’ on the cover, the tabloids and their websites, the Instagrammers selling diarrhea tea, basically any media that’s not fat positive. Back in 2007, I was more than a bit addicted to celebrity gossip - it was entertaining and a welcome distraction from my undergrad texts. However, once I realised how badly the tales of celebrity weight loss and gain affected my own body image, I started weaning myself off it. And the more time I spent on the fat positive internet, the more I started abhorring popular media and the diet culture it sells. After a point, I didn’t even want to browse through ONTD anymore. Especially because I could find all the fashion inspiration I wanted from the fat internet, and that too on bodies that looked like mine.

2. Surround yourself with fat positive media

Admittedly, the fatshion community has a very different face now than it did a decade ago, and there’s no onus on plus size bloggers to be fat positive as well. You’ll find countless plus fashion bloggers who advocate weightloss and think nothing of documenting their diets, but there are just as many anti-weightloss bloggers you can follow if you’re looking for some positive reinforcement to go with your daily fashion fix. If you’re looking for somewhere to start with, my blogroll on this page has quite a few awesome internet peeps who are just as fat positive as they’re fashionable. And if anyone you’ve been following for a while, and whose style you love descends down the slippery road to diets, don’t hesitate to unfollow them if that’s what you need for your sanity. Just putting that out there because I feel kind of bad whenever I have to do that!

3. You don’t have to listen to your friends’ diet talk

I have friends who get down on their bodies, who can’t stop talking about how badly they need to lose weight. Most of us have friends like that. It’s especially distressing when they’re people you’re close to and genuinely care about, people whose concerns you can’t just shut down without an explanation. I’ve found that a gentler approach works best in these situations. All my friends are extremely aware of my stance on diets and weightloss - I mean, I’ve only been banging on about it for the last decade or so! Yet they still try to talk to me sometimes about how they’re planning to lose weight. In situations like this, this is pretty much what I tell them: Listen dude, it’s your body, you do whatever you want with it. But you know how I feel about weightloss, so there’s no point telling me about this because I’m just going to space out. You’re an adult, making your adult choices, so go ahead and make them *shoulder pats* I have literally zero inputs to give here. *firm shoulder pats*

Back when I was first learning about fat positivity, I made it my mission to bring all my closest friends into the fold. How could I let them suffer in the purgatory of dieting and self hate when I’d found such freedom in the  alternative? Unfortunately, that’s not how people work. And ultimately, everyone has to make their own decisions about the path they want to follow, whether it comes to weightloss or the rest of life itself. You can help them along the way, but the decision of whether to be diet free or not is theirs to make.

4. Spend some time with yourself

One of the things I realised when I was getting to grips with body positivity was this: I didn’t actually know my own body. I used to avoid looking at mirrors, especially when I was naked, I only ever saw myself from one single angle, looking down at my boobs, belly, a bit of leg and feet. Whenever I came across a candid photo, I would be aghast because is this really how everyone sees me? To accept my body, I had to know it first. From every possible angle so that I couldn’t take myself unawares. Back then, I had my ex to photograph me naked, but if you don’t have anyone like that, use the mirror, use your webcam! Take photos of yourself with the self timer, standing, sitting, in silly poses and unflattering ones. Examine those photos, find the parts of your body that you love, and write down what it is that you love about them. Then find the parts of yourself that you don’t love as much and figure out something positive to say about them as well. Write that down too. Keep going back to those photos and notes whenever you can, and keep adding to them. If I’d taken these swimsuit photos 5 years ago, I’m sure I’d have been cringing at my flat butt and lumpy thighs entirely because I wasn’t familiar with them. But now I know exactly what I look like from the back, or sitting down. The body I have is the body I expect to see in photos because I’ve seen it so many times now. I know exactly how my belly folds, where my things dimple when I’m walking. These are regular, everyday features to me now, not some kind of a bogeyman waiting to jump out at me from photos I didn’t expect.

5. Set a positive example by eating

This one’s for those of you who have already taken the first steps towards body positivity, those of you who are feeling secure enough to give a very public middle finger to diet culture. I didn’t find public eating easy at the beginning, especially since I had a history of eating disorders. As my BFF recalls, one of her first memories of me was at the University canteen, with an apple in one hand and a cigarette in the other, steadfastly refusing any other food because ‘that’s all I needed for lunch.’ It took a while to get to the point where I could go out with her and triumphantly demolish platters of food in public. What I noticed, though, was that whenever I was out with a group of people and a couple of them were heading towards the ‘I think I’ll just have a salad’ territory, they ended up ordering what they actually wanted and enjoying it once I’d set the lead by unabashedly eating what I wanted. And even if you’re still a way away from being able to eat freely in public, I think that just eating the food you want with relish and joy and savouring every bite without guilt is the biggest FUUUUU you can hurl at the diet industry this time of the year. So treat yourself to the food you love and actually want to eat, listen to your body instead of the ad pointing out your supposed failings. And remember, food has no morals attached to it, it’s we who burden our plates with them.

one afternoon they’re hanging out at even’s place by the window, and at one point even is like “wait, don’t move” and isak looks at him questionably and even goes to his room and comes back with his drawing pad and a couple of pencils. “this is too good, you have to stand still” and isak shakes his head and says “nope. i’m serious. even, no. the last time you said you wanted me to model for you, you shaped my face like a slice of bread” and even actually laughs at the memory (isak gasping when he saw the drawing, and telling even “that’s it, we’re over” and even apologizing with a kiss on his cheek, telling isak he’d throw away the ridiculous drawing - which he didn’t, it’s still hidden in one of his drawers) and says “you had bread crumbs on the corner of your mouth. the inspiration hit me. i couldn’t resist.” and isak feigns annoyance and even adds “i promise i won’t draw your face like a slice of bread. promise promise.” and isak doesn’t budge, so even quickly kisses him and he repeats the word promise in between quick kisses all over isak’s face until isak can’t help it and he lets out a giggle and says “okay, okay okay. since you promised” 

and they’re facing each other and even tells isak “lean your head against the wall. yeah, like that” and he starts drawing and they keep talking and isak tries not to move but after a while he says “eveeen. my neck is started to hurt” and even is looking down on his pad, concentration in his eyes and a small smile across his lips and he tells isak “it’s okay, you can move now”. the first thing isak does is move toward him like he wants to take a look at the drawing but even quickly hides the pad against his chest “nuh uh, i’m not done yet” 

so they hang out by the window the rest of the afternoon, and even finishes the drawing as they speak about nothing and everything. and then even is done and he gives the pad to isak, with the drawing facing down and isak is like “well, well, i can’t wait to see that” because, well, he doesn’t expect the drawing to be anything serious. but then he looks at it and his heart skips a beat and 

it’s beautiful. it’s isak’s face. a realistic drawing of his face. it’s not the type of drawings even usually draws, isak has never seen even draw something, someone like that. and there’s the way he drew isak. he drew light in his eyes. and isak is a little speechless and his lips are a little parted as he keeps staring at the drawing when even asks “do you like it?” to which isak replies “are you kidding me. even, this is amazing. i don’t know what to say. it’s just. beautiful.” and even is beaming and he says “see, told you i wouldn’t draw your face like a slice of bread. you don’t want me to throw this one out, right?” and isak is quick to reply “if you throw this one out, i’m actually never speaking to you again” and then he asks “can i…keep that one?” even doesn’t say anything, just hands out his hand, asking isak for the drawing pad. and when isak gives it to even, even quickly writes something, and then he removes the drawing from the pad and gives it back to isak, with a note at the bottom that reads: for isak. you look beautiful in this universe
