princess shelf

GHIBLI SHELF

There is a book shelf in my room with books, games and toys which is where this idea started. I thought it would be fun to make a Ghibli themed illustration.

I’ve always wanted to do something involving Miyazaki’s work but I always seemed to find myself hitting a block and putting it aside. I wanted to finish something so this is the result.

Day 6: Book Recs 

I bought the new edition of the princess saves herself in this one, and I can’t wait to reread it! If you haven’t already, I suggest you buy it, grab your favorite hot beverage and jump right in! I’ve read numerous poetry books since I first read this one last year, but the princess saves herself in this one is still my all time favorite.

FINE. FANART OCTOPUS ATTACK!

Joking aside, FINALLY finished this thing. This is sooo much far bigger in scope than anything I’ve done in like… ages. Doesn’t help that I started by drawing ALL the octopus arms. Including suckers. WHY DID I EVEN DO THAT?

Fandoms: The 100
Pairings: Bellarke, background Minty
Characters: Bellamy, Clarke, Octavia, Miller, Raven, Monty
Words: 2,368
Summary: Bellamy’s known that he and Clarke are soulmates for a week longer than Miller’s known about Monty being his soulmate, and Miller finally worked it out, so it’s about time for Bellamy to get his shit together.

Or: Bellamy knows that soulmates sneeze at the same time. He also knows that he and Clarke sneezed at the same time a month ago. He just doesn’t know how to tell Clarke all of this.
Notes: Part one where Minty gets together is here.

Bellamy never believed in soulmates – to be honest he’s still only partly convinced and he holds a lot of resentment toward the entire idea, left over from his childhood – but he sneezed at the same time as Clarke and that means they’re soulmates.

Caress Bookshelf & Clutter

These rely on the original object in-game. May need the MOO cheat to place objects in all the slots. All objects are also searchable by ‘Brazen’ in the catalog.

I’ve been ripping a bunch of clutter from objects and clearing shelves lately :P This project turned out to be really nice and way more useful than I thought it would. As you can see in my pic above I used the MOO cheat to get these shelves really close and created a massive office library. The shelf no longer functions as a bookcase but it matches the original so you can mix them up. The shelf has like 400 slots so there should be plenty of room for all sorts of clutter :)

Objects Included:

  • Books 1
  • Books 2
  • Books 3
  • Books 4
  • Books 5
  • Books 6
  • Books 7

They don’t meet in a coffee shop, air hazy with almost glances and foreign fog, the smell of espressos and summer drugging the tourists and wakening the locals, that slow whisper of global possibility egging them all on.

They don’t meet underneath the Eiffel Tower, grass prickling her back, flattening underneath his sneakers, tasting lights with their eyes, because stories like those are too perfect.

Clarke and Bellamy’s? Not even close.

The $500 Million Battle Over Disney’s Princesses: How Hasbro grabbed the lucrative Disney doll business from Mattel.

***(This isn’t the whole article- I’m copying and pasting what I thought were the most interesting parts! The whole thing is definitely worth reading though, it’s fascinating)***

Mattel has worked with Disney since 1955, when it became the first sponsor for the Mickey Mouse Club, and it’s been the company’s go-to dollmaker since 1996.

But not for long: The princess business disappears on Jan. 1, when Disney packs up its glass slippers and takes them to Mattel’s biggest rival, Hasbro.

Disney is taking a risk turning to Hasbro. Mattel owns the doll market, and despite her recent stumble, Barbie is still the best-selling doll of all time. Hasbro, meanwhile, has traditionally kept to the boys’ side of the toy aisle, with brands such as Nerf and Transformers. But it has big plans for the princesses. Hasbro and Disney are redesigning and rereleasing every Princess doll, even Pocahontas, which few stores carry.

Hasbro researchers found that girls—young girls, particularly—weren’t nearly as into clothes and boys and happily-ever-after as they thought. “What we found was that girls loved the idea of a brand that embraced friendship and kindness,” Goldner says. Impressed with Hasbro’s analysis, Disney gave it a small license for Descendants, a made-for-TV movie it was developing about the teenage kids of its princesses.

Meanwhile, Mattel made what, in hindsight, seems like a pretty dense move: In 2013 it released its own line of princess-themed dolls, Ever After High. Unless you’re a girl under 10—or the parent of one—you’ve probably never heard of them. Designed to be the teen children of Cinderella, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, and other characters, they wear platform shoes, bodices, and short, sometimes see-through skirts: tarted-up versions of Disney’s Princesses. Stephen Sumner, a former Barbie designer now at Hasbro, did early sketches of the line. He says Mattel envisioned a line of witch dolls, then realized another company already had one. “So they had to turn it into princesses, even though there was kind of an overlap,” he says. Because the dolls were based on traditional fairy tales, Mattel didn’t have to pay Disney licensing fees. Disney didn’t like the competition.

Several former Mattel employees point to the 2013 release of Ever After High as the last straw for Disney. Chris Sinclair, a Mattel board member who took over as CEO in January, agrees. “We got too competitive with them on Ever After High,” he says. According to Mattel’s annual report, Ever After High accounted for just $53 million in added sales last year.


Disney decided to try to portray the princesses more as heroines than damsels. The company worked with Jess Weiner, a branding consultant who helps companies rethink the way they market to women. “Disney wanted to reach girls and women in more authentic ways,” says Weiner. “We looked at the Princess products. On backpacks and things, these princesses had always been fairly homogenous-looking and in passive poses. Anyone who’s spent time with a 5-year-old knows they’re not into passively posing.” 

Hasbro’s researchers talked to thousands of girls at the company’s Pawtucket headquarters, as well as in Hong Kong, London, and Los Angeles, and found that girls thought about princesses in much the same way that boys viewed superheroes. Sometimes they liked a character because of her dress; other times they focused on her abilities, such as archery and sword fighting (Merida, from Brave) or the ability to conjure ice and snow (Elsa). “Sometimes they want a prince, sometimes there is no need for a prince,” says Frascotti. Disney didn’t have to reimagine the princesses, it turned out. Girls had already done it themselves. The dolls had just never been marketed like that.

“Every girl knows Cinderella, but there are 11 princesses,” says Andrea Hopelain, a former Disney marketing director who’s vice president for global brand strategy at Hasbro. In toy stores today, at the end of Mattel’s reign, the available Disney Princess dolls almost always come from one of four movies: Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Frozen. Toys “R” Us’s flagship store in Times Square is 110,000 square feet and sells toys to millions of children every year, but right before Christmas this year, it had only one Tiana toy (Disney’s only African American princess, from The Princess and the Frog). That will change with Hasbro. “We can reintroduce Mulan,” says Hopelain. “We can play up that Tiana is a great cook.”

When Hasbro’s Disney Princess dolls go on sale on Jan. 1, all 11 will be available in toy stores for the first time. The dolls will have different heights and waist sizes (though not by much). Their flawless skin will come in various shades of—well, mostly white—and their facial features have been directly modeled after the characters in the films, not painted on a preexisting mold. Their arms are stiff, and their hair isn’t as easily brushable as Barbie’s, but they’re simpler, cleaner, and easy to tell apart. They look like Disney’s animated characters come to life.

These distinctions are subtle, but, Hasbro and Disney hope, they’ll make each princess feel like a fully realized person, not just one of 11 lookalikes separated only by the color of her dress. Hasbro CEO Goldner admits that the first few months of sales will probably be slow as stores discount Mattel’s old dolls to get rid of inventory. “After that, it’s our brand to manage,” he says.

Both Hasbro and Disney say they plan to highlight the princesses’ bravery and skills in future advertising, and to give the nonwhite princesses more shelf space. “A 4-year-old girl doesn’t realize how the world she lives in is different from 10 or 15 years ago, but her parents do,” says Frascotti. And parents, he points out, are the ones who buy the toys.
