southern wear


Whenever the other wears the other’s color, they love each other a little bit more.

My headcanon is Katara as a Fire Lady only wears her husband’s colors during important/formal events (and Zuko respects her choice) as well as Zuko humbling himself with not wearing his crown and only wearing Southern Water tribe clothing during their visits in the south. Her betrothal necklace is carved from gold and bronze (cause zuko’s a doting lover) with the shape of the flower Milk Vetch cause I love its meaning

I live for the concept of McCree wearing those Southern Girl shirts as a joke. You know the ones, with fifty different fonts in five different colors that say things like “Texas Princess” or “American by Birth, Southern by the Grace of God” or “Relax, Cowboy, I was looking at your gun”. He wears them all as a joke cuz way back in the Blackwatch days, Gabe saw one and commented on how it fit McCree’s ugly ass cowboy aesthetic, and he bought them out of spite. And then it just carried on over the years so now people always try to find the ugliest ones they can to give him for his birthday or at Christmas. Hanzo hates them at first but gets used to it, because it’s funny as fuck and stupid and he’ll be damned if Jesse doesn’t actually fit them in a terrible way. Eventually Jesse buys him one (its a tank top that says “I don’t wear bows, I shoot them” and Hanzo hates it but loves it at the same time and wears it to bed each night.

ladyterabithea  asked:

My hair is super short now and the only downsides are a) bedhead and b) all the pretty girls think I'm super butch and expect me to make the first move

a.) Bedhead isn’t a downside. Just embrace it. Or maybe don’t. I literally don’t own a comb, so maybe don’t trust me.

b.) Wear full southern belle garb and loudly talk about your want for lady suitors while your bedhead sways coquettishly in the breeze created by your ornate folding fan.

I tried to draw a humanized Lightning and Sally sort of on a lake dock. I only did the waste down since I’m still trying to get drawing faces in a side view right with out it looking weird. And their humans since I can’t draw cars. I can barily draw humans. But I did my best. Any conductive criticism is welcomed.

On Sansa’s hairstyle and clothing style

It is so interesting to observe how Sansa dresses and does her hair throughout the series; because as Sansa undergoes her journey - starting with Southern dreams only to have them crushed and progressively returning to Northern realities - so do her hair and clothes follow and parallel this journey.

At the start of the show, we see Sansa wearing a pale blue dress with a heavy fur coat when she greets the royal family when they visit Winterfell. Her hair is let down. Arya is also wearing blue. This is the most Stark Sansa looks before a long time. Observe though that out of the whole Stark family, Sansa is already wearing the most pale of the coats - her parents, her sister and her brothers all wear darker tones. This marks her as the least of her family bound to their Northern roots. Indeed Sansa is presented as the child leaning the most towards the South and the one that could easiest adapt to it. Sansa is quick to shed her coat and upon arriving at King’s Landing, quickly adopts a Southern style, favoring a flowery purple dress that would easily please House Tyrell - a motif that she displays from the very beginning of the series. She still likes to wear pale blue though and although her septa points out she also quickly adopted a southern hairstyle, she still lets her hair down sometimes. She wears it southern-styled more heavily - and happily - towards the end of Season 1 as a way for her to get inspiration from Cersei.

Following the death of her father and with her dreams shattered, we see Sansa still choosing to wear southern colors - pale pink and blue - and she still sports a southern hairstyle very often. This reflects her initial fear of being left alone as hostage in King’s Landing; thus she keeps dressing like she does belong to the court as a means to protect herself, a way for her to blend and fit in. Notice though that as she finds some footing - learning to not give into Cersei or Joffrey but not yet standing up to them - she subtly starts to detach herself from the Southern culture. When the mob attacks the King, she is wearing her hair southern-styled but finds a way to have them semi-let down and after the riot, she lets them down entirely, simply tying them lightly behind her head while also dismissing explicit southern colors, choosing instead a more neutral violet colour - warm enough to fit the South but dark enough to stand out as particular.

This trend continues during Season 3 where we constantly see Sansa wearing the same purple dress, a rich contrast to Margaery’s pale dresses, the likes of which Sansa wore previously. In doing so, Sansa subtly reaffirms that she is alone here, that she does not belong in King’s Landing and that she knows it. Sansa copies Margaery’s hairstyle but it allows her to let her hair down. Never once during her time in King’s Landing do we see Sansa wearing sleeveless dresses like Margaery; she always has clothes with long sleeves. Furthermore, Sansa does not really care anymore about appearing like a proper lady and even less a Southerner. The only time Sansa dresses Southern style again is for her wedding. Being married to Tyrion and effectively becoming a Lannister, she once again sports a Southern hairstyle and wears a very Southern golden dress. Notice in the next episodes that she quickly reverts back to her previous purple gown and hairstyle even though she is now Lady Lannister.

It is during Season 4 that we see Sansa change her clothing style the most drastically. At Joffrey’s birthday, Sansa - reeling from the news of her mother and brother’s deaths - does not even bother to do her hair and simply lets them down. She makes one last effort and sports a Southern style for the last time for his and Margaery’s wedding but still chooses to wear purple instead of warmer colours. Following her escape, she regains some sort of freedom and we see her wearing a cloak - not yet a fur coat but this is a first, more explicit step towards her Northern roots. We also see Sansa’s hair braided for the first time, in the style of her mother. In the Eyrie where Sansa regains strength from the snow and the cold and under Littlefinger’s tutelage, she starts finding confidence and learns how to stand up for herself; she lets her hair down again and sews herself a new dress - a dark one this time - effectively shedding purple and abandoning the Southern style at the same time .

In Season 5, Sansa returns to her Northern roots but finds that she cannot fit there completely anymore. Her hair - dyed black - is tied at the back of her head and let down and she wears her black dress and a black cloak, embroidered with light fur - the first time since Season 1 we see Sansa wearing fur. Back in a much changed Winterfell, Sansa adopts heavy greyish dresses, more plain and practical and far from the warm-coloured, light and adorned gowns from the South. Even for her second wedding, Sansa sports a more Northern hairstyle and she is all in white - a cold colour - and she wears fur again. Following this, she is often seen with a dark grey cloak and a plain greyish gown. Sansa has stopped alltogether caring about appearing beautiful and ladylike; throughout the season, we see her starting to own up to her Stark heritage and stand up to people on numerous occasions (Theon, Ramsay, Myranda).

Sansa finally embraces her Northern heritage. Her hair in Season 6 is braided in the style of her late mother; notice that in all her political meetings (with Littlefinger, with the Northern houses, with Ramsey) she always braids them and with the exception of her brief stay at the Wall, no longer lets them down - a sign that she has stopped being a child. She is wearing a heavy fur coat - her first real Northern-style fur coat since the first season. Notice this time her clothes and the coat are not pale anymore; they are fully dark. In doing so, she regains her full strength and confidence. Her choice of color is important here; she does not  simply go for the black/grey or even the blue - she chooses a dark green, as a way to also show her Tully heritage. Furthermore, Sansa is affirming her position as Lady of her own House, sporting the Stark wolf embroidened on her clothes. This enables her to assert herself as a leader of the two Houses. This shows how well she now understands the tactics of politics. At the end of the season, now that she has reclaimed her home, Sansa feels comfortable enough to let her hair down again - like her mother before, the previous Lady of Winterfell - sporting a Northern hairstyle.

Overall, Sansa finally looks the most Stark she has ever looked, the looks of her parents and her siblings  at the start of the series - the last time they were all standing together as a family.

Sweet, Strong & Southern

“No I’m not wearing that!”

James and Thomas were in their apartment. James was enjoying his day binge watching Netflix. Until Thomas walked in holding up a shirt saying, “I like my man how I like my tea. Sweet, Strong and Southern.“

“Come on, babe you know you like this shirt,” Thomas Jefferson comment with smile.

The short man blankly looked at him.

James shook his head, ”No. It’s trashy.”

Thomas cuddle James,”No It’s trendy and cute. Just like you.”

“Still no wearing that,”James told him swiftly clicking to the next episode.

Thomas held him tight showing off his puppy eyes to his boyfriend,”Pretty please.”

“Let me think about it…..No,” James said ending the conversation focusing on the episode. Thomas pouted at his boyfriend and not earning his attention. The curly haired got  off of James, walking to their bedroom needing to think up a plan. Desperate times calls for desperate measures,thought Thomas.

Thomas knew one thing that would make James wear that shirt. His southern drawl would make James listen.

“Darlin’,” Thomas called him.

“Oh God,” James moaned under his breath. Thomas is using his southern accent again, I have to be strong James thought.

“Yes, Thomas,” James answered look at him.

The curly afro looked him,”Can you please wear this shirt?”

James swallowed dryly,”I don’t know.”

Thomas curled up to James, “Please I think it’ll look so sexy on you.”

James blushed,”Really?”

“Of course darlin’ can you pretty please,” Thomas said hugging James’ midsection.

James fidgeted a little, “It wouldn’t hurt to wear it just once…right?”

“Right,” Thomas agreed secretly smiling that his plan is working.

James got off the couch and  put on the shirt still feeling uncomfortable in it, “ How do I look?”

“The sexiest man alive!” Thomas gushed. Making James blushed at the comment.

“Thank you,” James said.  Thomas grabbed his hand walking out to the front door.

“Where are we  go,” James asked as he

“Go to show this to Hamilton’s face,” The curly haired answered.


“To show I have a cuter boyfriend then he has,” Thomas smiled at him.

“Couldn’t do that in phone?” question James trying keep up with Thomas.

“It’s not the same,” The taller one as they reached to the elevators.
