Double-thick wigs are useful for all sorts of situations - they’re especially great for spiking because extra fiber creates an extra-thick spike, but they are also useful for characters who simply have a ton of wild hair, such as Jasper or Jiraiya. Even wig brands renown for their thick hair can’t hold a candle to a double-thick wig, especially when you double up on a wig style that was thick to start with.
A wighead and stand
A seam-ripper or small pair of scissors
Duckbill or alligator clips
Tacky glue or a needle & thread
Keep reading below to learn how to make your own super thick wig!

“why are you at my doorstep at 3 in the morning…”
Steve’s Brooklyn apartment was in a good area - much nicer than it had been back when he’d originally lived there at least - but that didn’t make him any less wary when a pounding on the front door woke him out of a dead sleep.
He fumbled for his cell phone on the bedside table and blinked at the screen. 2:47 am. Far too late - or early, depending on how you looked at it - for one of his neighbors or teammates. Unless something was wrong.
He palmed his Avengers comm as he rolled out of bed. The apartment was dark, but the lights from the street outside were more than enough to see by as he made his way to the front door. He hesitated for a long moment, listening for any obvious signs that something was wrong, but after a moment he relaxed and conceded that it was unlikely the Red Skull would have bothered knocking first.
If you ask me, the Machiavellian schemes of Tzeentch, the unimaginable power of The Emperor, the absolute sickfuckery of Slaanesh, and even the intentional confusion of The Deceiver have nothing on the Gods of the most simplistic race of all.
Gork ‘n Mork are, if you ask me, the gods that will cause the most debate on “what do they look like?” and “Which is which” and even “are they even two separate entities?” Because 40K lore intentionally leaves a lot of them vague as fuck, and for a humorously simple reason: the orks don’t fucking know either!
Seriously, ask any Ork, be he puny grott, or might Warboss, and they’ll almost all tell you, one ‘a dem bashes ya in da face, and de udduh sneaks up an’ smashez ya in da face. It’s just…not even an ork is sure which is which, namely because they may as well be the same thing.
Of course a warboss like Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka will tell you there IS a big difference and that he DOES know which is which. See, Ghazzy is quite literally the prophet of Gork. He hears his voice and his ideas, and subsequently has become the single most powerful Ork warboss since the days of WAAAGH!!! Beast. WAAAGH!!! Ghazghkull is setting up to be the next Beast WAAAGH!!! and that is really, unbelievably, fuckmassively, horribly, space shatteringly, bowel shakingly bad.
Y’see, WAAAGH!!! Beast nearly ended Holy Terra, in fact, The Beast himself grew so large, so powerful, so FUCKING INTELLIGENT, that he had ORK DIPLOMATS. Let me state again, that, as an Ork Warboss, the ork known only as The Beast became so powerful from the overwhelming Gestalt field that it is said that he was as big as a fucking Hab Block, and that the marines mistook him for a goddamn STOMPA! Not only this, but y’know how Ghazzy loves to use roks as both tansportation AND weapons? (for those of you unaware, roks are basically meteorites that have giant fucking thrusters strapped to them) Yeah, The Beast made attack MOONS.
Not only this, but any Ork aficionado knows that there are main Ork klans or tribes. These are usually regarded as The Blud Axes, The Snakebites, and Goffs, among others. The thing is, these klans started with The Beast, who designated certain boyz who were good at gettin’ shit done. On top of this, I repeat, ORK FUCKING DIPLOMATS!
I’m gonna be in all caps for this, fair warning.
THE BEAST AND HIS WAAAGH!!! BECAME SO FUCKMASSIVE THAT THE GESTALT FIELD OF EACH ORK WAS SO SUPERCHARGED THEY BECAME ESSENTIALLY FUCKING KRORKS, THE OG ORKS, THE THING THE ANCIENT ONES INTENDED TO MAKE! THESE FUCKERS WERE SO INTELLIGENT THEY LAID SIEGE TO TERRA, AND THEN SENT IN DIPLOMATS TO DISCUSS TERMS OF FUCKING SURRENDER! NO FUCKING ORK SURRENDERS OR ACCEPTS IT BUT GODDAMN THE BEAST WAS INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO RECOGNIZE THE BENEFIT OF SURRENDER FROM THE ENEMY!
Now…why am I telling you how awful the beast WAAAGH!!! was? Because WAAAGH!!! Beast failed. Why? Because for all his intelligence, The Beast didn’t have Gork or Mork to guide him. Who does? Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka does, and like I said, his WAAAGH!!! is shaping up to be even bigger.
Now, what does this actually have to DO with Gork ‘n Mork? Everything. See Ghazzy is proof that orks worship two individual gods, not mistaking one god for two. Gork is supposed to be the brutal kunnin’ of ork boyz, the guy who walks up to your face, smashes your face in with a pipe, and then uses your smashed face as a trophy. Gork is savage brutality that has intelligence behind it. Ork and intelligence isn’t synonymous, but by god their brutality is almost accidentally brilliant. Mork, on the other hand, is said to be the god of kunnin’ brutality. He’s the git who, like a goff, paints ‘isself purple, sneaks up behind a humie, and then taps him on the shoulder. With a cooking grenade. Gork and Mork’s difference is that one will scare you by sneaking up (Mork) the other will scare you by walking towards you (Gork).
Another thing to note, the last time any sort of Ork/Orc was supposed to be the prophet of Gork, he nearly killed Archaon. Grimgor Ironhide is, without a doubt, the most powerful Orc in Warhammer Fantasy, and was ALSO the prophet of Gork. What did Grimgor do in his life? Oh y’know, just make some chaos dwarfs run away horrified, charge so far into skaven ratways that he damn near broke into a fucking UNDERCITY, oh and he also BEHEADED ARCHAON THE EVERCHOSEN! Yes, in the original draft, Grimgor walks up to Archaon and kicks him in the dick, and while he’s writhing, headbutts him, then says “OI WANKAH! I HEARD YOUZ THINKZ YOUZ TOUGH YOUZ IZ. ILL FOOKIN DECKZ YA ROIGHT PROPAH I WILL!” And proceeds to BEHEAD THE EVERCHOSEN, ENDING THE END TIMES. Of course this was retconned and Grimgor only managed to put up an insane fight. However, its obvious that Gork’s blessing alone means a lot for an orks life. So when Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka says he has Gork’s voice in his head, the entire galaxy should be fucking horrified.
It was a slow summer evening in 2Fort, the type that was perfect for ice cream after dinner or freshly squeezed lemonade. Or assembling explosive weaponry. If you were into that sort of thing.
The picnic table on the back porch was covered with the tools of the demolitionist trade, with all manner of springs, screws, sporks, and spikes having been carefully laid out in meticulous fashion. Small bottles labeled with a mix of indecipherable scrawls and complex chemical formulas sat neatly in line and various screwdrivers, tweezers, and a single shot of whisky were placed within easy reach of the man putting everything together.
Being out on the porch was a nice change from the musty confines of his work shed, and Demo hummed to himself as he assembled one sticky bomb after another in preparation for tomorrow’s match.
So last night @witchlightsands and a friend wrote a prank whatsit fic at ass o’clock at night in which they copied the phrase “LLOYD/KAI IS PEDOPHILIC WITH CHILD GROOMING UNDERTONES AND KAI WAS HIS TEACHER AT ONE POINT YOU GUYS ARE NASTY” over and over to make it about 22k long, labeled it as smut and explicit, gave it a pretty obvious joke title, and posted it. Think the infamous Reylo Fic. but better.
Weeeell, apparently we can’t have nice things because a whatsit, using the AO3 guest name “itsnotfunny,” decided to comment the following:
you really shouldn’t mock those who are interested in greenflame like this, it’s not very nice and makes you like a total jerk.
like, this is the only way why greenflame shippers love greenflame, just because ther’re hot together and have nothing in their mind other then only hot and meaningless sex? do you really think greenflame shippers ship them because the shippers are bad people? we love greenflame for many reasons, their relationship could be awkward, but it could be as nice as it could be. about how they could understand each other so well and would always look out for each other and makes their lives less difficult.
so please keep it to yourself if you really hate greenflame this much. please let the greenflame shippers ship what they want and what they love because we’re not even trying to make all the other people love greenflame, we’re not even trying to FORCE others to agree with greenflame. we just want anti-s, like you, stop assaulting us like this. please stop assaulting greenflame because you disagree with this shipping, please stop being so nasty just because you want to make us greenflame shippers feel bad.
please, hate greenflame as much as you want and it’s fine, just keep those to yourself. thank you.
Whoof, there’s a lot to unpack here. And what better way to unpack than with some classic Disk Horse™? Especially since I’ve actually watched most of the first season now. So let’s do this.
you really shouldn’t mock those who are interested in greenflame like this, it’s not very nice and makes you like a total jerk.
Y’know what’s not very nice, ao3 guest “itsnotfunny?” It’s not very nice that whatsits spammed @witchlightsands, a FIFTEEN YEAR OLD KID, with anon hate mocking their special interest and saying they don’t contribute anything of value to the fandom. And yes, that happened. I saw it. That’s being a total jerk.
like, this is the only way why greenflame shippers love greenflame, just because ther’re hot together and have nothing in their mind other then only hot and meaningless sex?
I feel like this belongs in the leftbook group “it’s so incoherent i don’t even know how reprehensible it is” ((note: if english isn’t your first language or you’re disabled i take that back, but otherwise that’s my stance))
Anyhow, uhhhhh no, nobody’s saying that that’s the only reason whatsits ship garbagefire but it’s one of the reasons and frankly that’s all I need to hear. And also, ao3 guest “itsnotfunny,” it may be worth pointing out that you clicked on a fic marked as smut. It may not be everyone’s reason for shipping greenflame, but it seems to be yours……
do you really think greenflame shippers ship them because the shippers are bad people?
we love greenflame for many reasons, their relationship could be awkward, but it could be as nice as it could be. about how they could understand each other so well and would always look out for each other and makes their lives less difficult.
ohhhh my God oh god you actually—Okay, okay, wow. So uhhhh here’s the thing, “awkward” is like…. Not that. Awkward is when the details are being worked out but the dynamic is healthy. Literally the entire theme leading up to like 1x10 (like, between Kai and Lloyd) is that Lloyd is a little kid and a brat. The ninja talk about “babysitting” him; when he’s first trying to cause trouble with the Serpentine they don’t see him as an actual threat because he’s so small… y’all, they clearly see him as a kid. And any relationship where one party is seen as a kid by the other, is by definition unhealthy. I’ll remind you again that you, ao3 user “itsnotfunny,” clicked on a fic marked “underage…”
As for the “nice” part, here’s the thing. Understanding someone, looking out for them, and making their life less difficult, isn’t inherently romantic. Honestly I think that’s the thing that creeps me out the most about shippers, this assumption that mutual kindness and aid is inherently romantic as opposed to any other type of relationship. Kai and Nya understand each other, look out for each other, and make each other’s lives better, but their dynamic isn’t romantic; they’re siblings (although to be perfectly frank I wouldn’t be shocked if people in this hell fandom shipped them).
so please keep it to yourself if you really hate greenflame this much. please let the greenflame shippers ship what they want and what they love because we’re not even trying to make all the other people love greenflame, we’re not even trying to FORCE others to agree with greenflame.
Uhhhh…. no. No, I’m not gonna do that. I’m not going to keep it to myself that I think shipping a little kid with an older teenager/adult isn’t okay. I’m not gonna “let people” ship something that in real life would be illegal and I’m certainly not going to be quiet when people say that they love it. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to force me to like it or not. It’s still wrong.
Let’s just say that again a bit louder for those in the back. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to force me to like it or not. It’s still wrong.
we just want anti-s, like you, stop assaulting us like this. please stop assaulting greenflame because you disagree with this shipping, please stop being so nasty just because you want to make us greenflame shippers feel bad.
Okay, seriously, what is with shippers being all drama queen and using words like “assault?” Saying “hey, that’s pedophilia,” even in all caps and on repeat, isn’t assault. Assault is beating someone up… or an adult having sex with a child, something which, again, ao3 guest “itsnotfunny,” you seemed to want to read. And for that, you should feel bad.
please, hate greenflame as much as you want and it’s fine, just keep those to yourself. thank you.
so that lampshade person or wetf their url was is now posting noteless post after post like "zutara is a sin!" "zutara is reylo reblog if you agree!" "zutara is abusive!" (that last one in all caps and repeated about 5 times). oh dear. someone call the "wahh"mbulence
I’m not surprised. Being put in a situation where you have to debate someone who clearly knows more than you is scary, and being proven wrong is always embarrassing. (Shouldn’t be, but, oh well.)
Honestly, just block them and don’t worry about it, they have a lot of growing to do until they become capable of actual critical thinking or, you know, constructive debate. I don’t even know why I tried, I should’ve known that they’re incapable of holding a conversation from the first moment they ignored my question and resorted to flinging insults instead.
But, live and learn and all that.
(I think they also had an Attack on Titan avi? Which, really, tells you all you need to know: “I’ll call this ship abusive, fling insults at anyone who disagrees, compare it to shipping an actual Fascist with a woman he terrorized… and I’ll also stan this love letter to Imperial Japan and glorification of Japanese Imperialism written by an actual Nazi-sympathizer.” But, you know, Kataang shippers and Zutara antis aren’t exactly known for self-awareness.)
Thanks to @musicalluna, @lightshadowverisimilitude and everyone else who sent me information on canvass and art supplies in the 1940s. If I got any of the details wrong, it’s entirely my fault.
Steve was just coming back from his post-workout shower when he saw the painting.
It was in the Mansion living room, propped against the fireplace. There was an open crate and thick brown packing paper next to it, so it had clearly just arrived. He almost didn’t look at it - Pepper enjoyed expanding Tony’s art collection and it was hardly the first time some nearly-priceless work of art arrived unannounced. Although Pepper rarely left them lying around unprotected, not with Wolverine and Spider-Man living here.
He glanced over, just a quick look because Pepper had a phenomenal eye for these sort of things, and his heart froze in his chest.
When you enter the bjd hobby, the hardest part to overcome, is probably the price. We know why bjds are so expensive and that recasts are bad. Yet, to spend such a large sum of money on a doll, is difficult, at first.
Testing the waters: If you are interested in bjds and want to buy one, you might worry about the future. In the sense of: will I still like this doll when it arrives? What if this hobby isn’t my cup of tea at all? These are concerns many people have had. And it might be a reason not to go for the expensive one you like. After all, you don’t want to lose a lot of money when it turns out, this hobby isn’t for you. I would still recommend to go for a doll you really like though. Not a bjd for the sake of a being a bjd. So do your research well, and find your perfect starter doll / first doll.
What are starter dolls? Starter dolls are cheap (in bjd terms..) dolls. Being cheap, they don’t hurt your wallet as much as a more expensive bjd would, thus they are very popular among newbies.
Starter doll hate: Because they are popular with newbies, they tend to look a little less stellar than dolls owned by experienced hobbyist. THIS IS NOT A BAD THING. Newbies learn and soon their bjd, cheap or expensive, will look awesome. However, it does make some snobby people look down on the cheaper dolls. They find them ugly and urge other newbies not to settle* and to save up for a more expensive doll.
Inferiority complex: That is why some newbies are afraid people will be nasty to them if they post pictures of their own cheap doll. CHEAP DOLLS ARE NOT INFERIOR. Repeat that phrase in all caps, because it is true.
Resinsoul / Bobobie: These are the most known and the most referred to cheap companies. Resinsoul dolls are popular, not just because they are cheap, but because people genuinely like their sculpts. Read more here. However, it is important to remember that Resinsoul and Bobobie are not your only options out there. There are more cheap companies who’s aesthetic might appeal to you more. Here is the list of dolls under $300 again.
*Settling or saving up: In my opinion the best way to go about is to take the middle ground. Don’t settle for the first doll in your budget. YOU need to genuinely like the doll you are buying. If the doll you like the most, requires you to win the lottery, you might want to reconsider,
So find a doll you like, within your budget or within your stretch of patience to save up. The too expensive doll will become your grail doll (a hard to obtain doll, which you hope to obtain one day). The doll of your choice might be a cheap one, one you can afford right now or with little saving up. Or you could save up a little longer for a doll you like even better. Whatever you decide, the decision is yours and only you know if you can save up, how long it would take, and how much money you have.
yaaaaassss au pairing full scenario. MY YEARS OF WATCHING HOUSE MD HAVE FINALLY PAID OFF. (Disclaimer: I have exactly no medical experience. I know about anaphylactic shock because I’ve personally experienced it, but almost everything else is total bullshit off WedMD. So… yeah.) -Avery
Pairings: Dean x Reader (if you squint really hard), mentions of vague past Sam x Reader
Word Count: 5400-ish
Warnings: Swearing, so much swearing.
Summary: While on a routine hunt Sam and Dean run into an old family friend they haven’t seen in years. Dean hopes to not get her involved in whatever supernatural craziness they’re dealing with but she may be at the heart of it all. Can Sam and Dean handle the monster lurking in town, or did they accidentally just find a whole new issue to deal with?
A/N: So this is my first time posting any sort of fic in the Supernatural fandom. I’m super nervous about getting back out there, but I really want to share this story that’s been nagging me like crazy. I want to send a special thank you to @unadulteratedstorycollector for taking the time to listen to me ramble about my ideas and for guiding me along when my plot had a few holes in it.
(If you’d like to be added to the tag list because you like what you see, let me know!)
Sam’s probably knocked on a 100 doors by the time he reaches this one. He’s probably asked the same four questions a million times; “How long have you lived in the building?,” “Have you heard any strange noises recently, smelled anything weird that corresponds with said noises?,” “Have you seen anything out of the ordinary?,” and last but not least, “Do you mind if I use your bathroom?”
Would monster magic be learned or would it be hereditary?
It is suggested that some is learned, and some is hereditary.
For example it is said that monsters may get new bullet pattern birthday cards, either at a certain maturity or after a coming of age ceremony monsters are taught or become capable of new “moves” like Pokemon. We know certain species have species specific attacks, for example, Snowdrake and chilldrake, all the different ice caps, and other repeating species of monsters.
Some of it is dependent on interests. For example, in the true pacifist ending, when Alphys protects Frisk’s soul, her bullets are a line of electrical bolts. She doesn’t have any device on her nor could she use any device while constricted by vines. The monster kid and the librarian are both lizard monsters like Alphys, yet they show no electrical abilities, showing this is a learned ability, not species specific.
Some of it is amplified by weapons, for example, Undyne’s spears, Mad Dummy’s knife, Asgore’s trident, Sans’s Gaster blaster, the Dogi’s axes… You get the idea.
A lot of it is dependent on skill level and fighting technique, for example, compare Papyrus’s attacks to Sans’s, and Toriel’s to Asgore’s. There is an increase in complexity.
Imagination plans a key role, as shown by the attacks and names of the attacks used by Asriel Dreamurr, absolute God of hyperdeath.
It’s complex and hinted that planning out and practicing these attack patterns and moves is something monsters enjoy doing and that great pleasure is gained when they express their feelings with their magic, which as we know has a damage, speed, and rate dependent on the emotions and soul power of the monster.
How to deal with rotation anxiety? It freaks me out that I'm going to be in an actual hospital working with actual patients. What if I mess up?
Here’s the thing: you WILL mess up. Frequently. In mind-bogglingly large and small ways. Everyday.
The good news is that because you are a student everyone expects you to mess up. Lemme repeat that in all caps for the kids in the back: IT IS OK TO MESS UP BECAUSE YOU ARE STILL LEARNING. No one’s life is in your hands for this reason. This is your time to learn and part of that process is messing up.
As med students we are used to being the brainiacs, right? We are used to getting all the correct answer. We are used to knowing the textbook. But real life, the situations you will encounter in clinic, are often sticky and messy. Sometimes there is no right answer. Real patients are not often textbook cases. Diseases do not learn the ‘proper presentation’. That’s hard to deal with for many med students.
The only way to handle this ambiguity and sudden headfirst freefall into real life is to accept that you will be wrong and you will mess up all the stinkin time and use those moments for learning. We can often get so mad at ourselves and spend so much mental and emotional energy beating ourselves up that we miss the opportunity for growth that comes from such moments. I do it all the time (remember when I cried in front of the program director last week?), so it can be a really hard thing to do for some people.
So, to deal with this type of anxiety here is my advice: first, take a big giant step back from defining yourself by always being right, by your scores, by how long you study, by how 'book smart’ you are. Now here is a huuuge slice of humble pie- it tastes like shit at first, but you get used to it eventually. Accept that you don’t know anything about anything. Finally, and this is the fun part, learn something from your mistake. Own it and grow from it. Rinse and repeat. If you still need help, please talk to a professional.
