hi maya! idk if you've heard anything about this (it's ok if you don't want to publish this) but one of my best friends is working for fashion, we're from South America and she moved to London 2 years ago and she's been working for several fashion brands and even did a small walk for FW. She's not a 1d fan but I was asking her Camille and she didn't know she was supposed to be dating Harry, she only said she's not liked by the brands and she's been having a hard time finding a job (part1)

because she’s been involved in fights with other models. She doesn’t know her personally, but she knows some of the gigs she got were not earned by her honest hard work (if you get what I mean) and that’s a common talk in the bts. I was kinda shocked but at the same time, not really. Harry’s team has a talent for finding some of the most gross people. Let’s hope her job with Harry ends soon (hopefully after the VS show) so we don’t have to see her again. that’s all, have a good daynight (part 2)

I guess, my short love letter to Karl Anderson

Why ‘the machinegun’ Karl Anderson is underrated.

Let’s start with some stats:

1 time NWA world tag champion

1 time NWA British commonwealth champion

4 NJPW tag champion

1 time G1 tag league winner

2 time world tag league winner

1 time G1 finalist against Kazuchika Okada

No. 64 on the PWI 500 2012

1 time NOAH tag champion

2011 best tag team of the year by the wrestling observer

1 time WWE raw tag champion

When he was in NJPW he also defeated Nakamura and Tanahashi in singles matches. He was also a core member of the famed Bullet Club and was a very important member in his time there.

Yes in the WWE he loosed a lot and to the people that only watch WWE I can see why you would not think much of him. I hope that you can look at his wrestling, promo’s and character and see that he is more than this comical character. EVEN THEN just remember he got the stupid catch fraise of 'nerd’ over to the point that the crowd joins in on them.

Don’t. Underestimate. Karl. Anderson.

He is one of the best.

As she pulled up to Abernathy’s, Katniss nervously played with the edge of her braid. She and her roommates found this little hole in the wall bar a few weeks ago for District 12 College’s first football game of the season and by now were generally well-liked by the other fans who filled the tiny bar. District 12 was one of those small but powerful schools when it came to football and the fans were always loyal to one another.

She lucked out getting the roommates she did. Madge and Delly both went to 12 for their undergraduate degrees. They were the girls who were always decked out in their game day outfits and were likely to get caught on ESPN at any given time. Johanna loved football in general but didn’t have a favorite college team, so she easily melded in with the others. Katniss was more than just a fan of the D12 Miners. She was born and raised in the heard of D12 country; if you cut her open, she bled black and gold. Her mother hand-knitted D12 blankets and hats and socks for her when she was born because her father refused to have anyone in the household not in uniform.

Thierry Henry, Forward, Henry has received many plaudits and awards in his football career. He was runner-up for the 2003 and 2004 FIFA World Player of the Year awards; in those two seasons, he also won back-to-back PFA Players’ Player of the Year titles. Henry is the only player ever to have won the FWA Footballer of the Year three times (2003, 2004, 2006), and the French Player of the Year on a record four occasions. Henry was voted into the Premier League Overseas Team of the Decade in the 10 Seasons Awards poll in 2003, and in 2004 he was named by football legend Pelé on the FIFA 100 list of the world’s greatest living players. 

In terms of goal-scoring awards, Henry was the European Golden Boot winner in 2004 and 2005 (sharing it with Villarreal’s Diego Forlán in 2005). Henry was also the top goalscorer in the Premier League for a record four seasons (2002, 2004, 2005, 2006). In 2006, he became the first player to score more than 20 goals in the league for five consecutive seasons (2002 to 2006). With 175, Henry is currently fifth in the list of all-time Premier League goalscorers, behind Alan Shearer, Andy Cole, Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard. All of his Premier League goals were for Arsenal, giving him the record for most goals in the competition for one club, until it was broken by Rooney in 2016. France’s all-time record goalscorer was, in his prime in the mid 2000s, regarded by many coaches, footballers and journalists as one of the best players in the world. In November 2007, he was ranked 33rd on the Association of Football Statisticians’ compendium for “Greatest Ever Footballers." 

Arsenal fans honoured their former player in 2008, declaring Henry the greatest Arsenal player. In two other 2008 surveys, Henry emerged as the favourite Premier League player of all time among 32,000 people surveyed in the Barclays 2008 Global Fan Report. In 2009, Henry was voted the best Premier League player of the 2000s. Arsenal fan and The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey mentions Henry in the tribute song "Highbury Highs”, which he performed at Arsenal’s last ever game at Highbury on 7 May 2006. On 10 December 2011, Arsenal unveiled a bronze statue of Henry at the Emirates Stadium as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations.

tsamsar  asked:

With a few friends we decided to take part of a performance, but I'm the only one who got experience in cosplay competitions and I attended in craftsmanship. Can you give any advice for performance?

Vicious Cosplay gave some great information about masquerades while she was a guest, so I suggest checking out the posts under the masquerade tag: click here.

But I can give you some tips which may or may not cross over with hers:

  1. Costume craftmanship or performance award, what is your focus? You can have both amazing costumes and an amazing skit but if you have amazing costumes you may want to focus on being able to show them off, or they may limit your ability to perform. If you’re more about winning a performance award then you may want a costume that allows you to move around freely, or focus more on the skit itself than the costumes. What is it that you want to show off?

  2. Write an interesting skit! Remember that there is a room full of people watching a ton of these one after another and it gets boring quickly. Think of a skit that will be interesting your audience, even if they haven’t seen the series. This could be through interesting costumes, storytelling, visual effects or a good soundtrack. If you can, run the script by some friends who will give you honest feedback. 

  3. Which generally means avoid popular dances. So many people do dance skits where they just do a dance to a song, especially if there is a popular dance that came out around the same time as the con. Like caramelldansen in 2008. 

    Try to avoid these dance skits if you can, but if you do make a dance skit make it INTERESTING. Do something that NO other dance skit is going to do. If someone had to watch 100 dance skits of the same song and dance before yours, what would make yours stand out from all the rest? 

  4. Practice. I just talked about dances and big problem with them is people didn’t practice as a group before hand. Dance skits rely on coordination to look cool and that coordination comes from practice. Practice isn’t just important for dance skits though, any skit can benefit from practice before hand. It helps with timing, it works out issues with the script early on, it works out pacing issues, it gives people a way to combat stage fright (focus on the steps) and it makes for a much better show. If you can’t meet with your group in person, try to practice via video chat!

  5. Pre-record your audio. a lot of masquerades will not provide a microphone and so your sound needs to be pre-recorded. This can be a great thing because now you don’t have to worry about holding a mic, getting feedback from getting to close or having to memorize lines. The downside is that you can get to the con and have your audio not play. My advice is to test your files: make sure it works on different media players, make sure your CD can be read and make sure that you have a backup just in case. 

  6. Have strong visuals. Remember that a large portion of your audience is going to be far away from the stage and that many will be watching via screen; Will they be able to see your performance? This applies to many aspects: should your prop be made larger, should your actions be more dramatic, are the details on your set large enough to be seen, can text be read from far away? During a practice run, try recording your skit from a few meters away then watch it as an audience member. 

  7. Keep it short and sweet. Vines can tell a story in 6 seconds, and while that might be a bit short for a performance you don’t need to take the full 2-5 minutes that a masquerade might give you either. Think about your youtube watching, how long into a video until you click around to find the good stuff? Do you even watch to the end of a one minute video if it doesn’t involve cats? So try to avoid making your skit longer than it needs to be, and give people a reason to stay engaged! 

Here are a couple of my favorite performances which might give you some inspiration:
