Always packing your kilt and sporran makes perfect sense because you never know when you’ll be invited to a worm themed dance:

But the bagpipes?  And the sash/mongoose carrier? (Seriously, where else could he have been carrying it?) To say nothing of the hand grenade.   

I guess there is being prepared and then there is being Angus.

anonymous asked:

What is this "cultural appropriation" everyone is talking about? Does that mean I can't use a kilt without being scottish? Because I see a lot of angry discussions around something like that.

“I’m just mad for tartan!”

Mm, interesting to mention the kilt as cultural appropriation, especially since it was the Scots themselves who commercialized the tartan patterns in the kilt and mass produced them.

Collection’s Highlight: Boy’s Scottish Outfit 

Scottish outfits grew in popularity throughout the Victorian era after Queen Victorian dressed her sons in similar costumes. Accoding to our records this outfit was worn occasionally by the donor’s father as a young boy.  Here we have four pieces of an eight-piece boy’s Scottish outfit.  Not photographed: little black shoes, plaid socks, sash pin, and hat.

I don't know if you know something about me #1

I don’t know if you know that I love Scottish guys. I love Scotland, Edinburgh is my favourite city (after New York) and I love guys with scottish kilt (DON’T ASK ME WHY BUT THEY LOOK SO GOOD).

Soooo, I decided that one day I will make you a list with the most wonderful scottish actors and I’ll explain you why they are SO perfect. 

I leave you an advance (be careful, your ovaries can explode):
