besides me being a fashion bombshell, even in the midst of wwii, the jacket was nice and warm and full of pockets. which is always a nice thing when you have to literally carry everything you need with you everywhere you go.
but on top of that, i grew up with tiny pre-human-lab-rat steve. among a very long list of medical issues which fueled his must-punch-everything attitude, steve was colorblind. (in a very typically steve move, he decided to become an artist, despite not being able to see half the colors out there.)
the modern term for what he was is ‘protanopia’ which is a type of red-green colorblindness which meant his ability to see the color red was not so great. pretty much everything in the red spectrum got toned down to taupes and greys, and yellows and greens were kinda muted. but his ability to see the color blue was basically unimpaired, so blue things stood out in his field of vision. back in the day, i wore a lot of blue because it was easier for steve to spot, and somewhere along the line it just kinda became my favorite color, and i tended to pick blue clothes out of habit.
these days steve’s favorite color is red, just for the novelty of being able to see it.
Imagine Lance and Red getting fed up with Keith when they’re formed as Voltron and when Keith is about to have them do something reckless or Lance is just really annoyed with Keith’s bossing everyone around, Lance and Red just [swing] [POP] sock the head of Voltron right in the face
Movies Bloodborne fans should watch: (if you ask me :P)
Brotherhood of the Wolf (French movie about the Beast of Gévaudan. Bloodborne’s fashion is most likely inspired by its beautiful costumes.)
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Cainhurst? Cainhurst. Cheesy at times.)
Crimson Peak (Gothic romance at its finest.)
Hellboy 1 / 2 - The Golden Army (Just watch the two movies, okay? SO GOOD.)
Van Helsing (yeah yeah, I know this one isn’t that great. WHO CARES! harmless fun with crazy weaponry and big monsters.)
Mary Reilly (the classic tale of Dr.Jekyll & Mr.Hyde seen from the point of view of Jekyll’s housemaid who, obviously, has a crush on him. )
From Hell (Jack the Ripper. Johnny Depp, Alan Moore, lots of drugs.)
The Whisperer in the Darkness (The best adaptation of Lovecraft’s story of the same name.)
Red Riding Hood (this movie gets all the hate just because it has the same director as Twilight but is a pretty decent movie with great atmosphere and a nice twist near the end. It’s not that easy to figure out who’s the wolf! My only complaint about this flick is that the actors are waaaay too attractive in pure young-adult romance fashion. Still worth a watch.)
Tenshi no Tamago (aka Angel’s Egg. Weird, visually stunning, very esoteric and reminds me a ton of Fishing Hamlet for some reason. The plot is cryptic and mysterious, just like Bloodborne’s.)
The Company of Wolves (a weird classic based upon Angela Carter’s dark fairytales ~♡)
Pride, Prejudice and Zombies (It’s better than you think.)
Goya’s Ghosts (SPANISH INQUISITION! Heresy! Torture! Drama! Doesn’t “look” like Bloodborne, but the themes are there and is overall a good historical movie with great actors.)
Penny Dreadful (TV series. This one is a mixed bag for me, but the photography is stunning and Victorian to the core. Rushed ending tho. And a lot of gratuitous sex scenes that don’t go anywhere. I warned you.)
Taboo (TV series. PRETTY NICE)
Solomon Kane (PURITAN DUDE KILLS STUFF)
Hellsing Ultimate (Anime OVA which needs no introduction.)
