Victor Victorious

Can’t believe it’s been 10 episodes and it just occured to me that Victor’s surname is Nikiforov, which comes from the Greek name Νικηφόρος (Nikifóros) and means Bringer of Victory.

So his name is Victor Who Brings Victory or (loosely translated) Victor Victorious.

No wonder he was always a champion. This is character naming on a par with Remus Lupin.

hi! I was wondering, where do you find your references to draw traditional clothes? thank you!!

check out this post by claire hummel -> http://shoomlah.tumblr.com/post/76245310670/claires-fancy-pants-historical-fashion-master

pinterest is great too, but i think it’s important to check the individual source of each post for authenticity/usefulness 

i would also suggest getting a LOT of references so you’re drawing from a wide pool of influences!

So, I don’t know how many of you know the story behind this picture, but I thought I’d share it because it’s so funny.

So apparently Patrick ( Darry ) was often placed at the back of the group for photo shoots and such, because he was so tall. Eventually, he got really sick of trying to look over everyone else, and started complaining about it. The photographer wouldn’t put him in the front, and Patrick started to get angry. So Emilio spotted some bricks off to the side of the road, put them in a pile, and told Patrick to stand on them. It worked, and the bricks can still be seen in this photo.
