Let’s just take a moment to talk about WHY this new A felt the need to wear that hotel-disguise costume. Besides, I thought this person now “hides in plain sight”?
The only logical explanation is that this new A is someone’s twin and can’t get caught.
Even more logical; it is someone’s twin who is DEAD and can’t be seen alive because then the liars will think that person never really died once they start seeing this person floating around town again (but really it’s their twin).
This new A text them and said that they “hide in plain sight” yet they wear a costume. They hide in plain sight in the sense that they will be standing right next to them pretending to be a worker at the hotel, but physically cannot take any mask off.
It’s not like how when Mona and CeCe were A, and how they put on fake acts to be the girls’ friends but was secretly A behind their backs. This person cannot reveal themselves as Mona and CeCe were casually walking around town pretending to be their friend but secretly their enemy.
This new A is CeCe’s twin seeking revenge for her death, and they think the liars were involved and it doesn’t help that Hanna deleted footage to help A work it out and now Ashley Marin has taken the backup security footage that A again really wanted to confirm if the girls are involved or not.
“Never have symmetrical poses” is the general rule. And most of the time I agree. It adds humanity as well as interest. No one is perfectly symmetrical.
But in terms of poses and staging, symmetry can make someone look much more controlled, or even imposing. The fact that you’re seeing the same data on both sides of the character/composition makes it all the more blunt.
The fact that symmetry can look “wooden” could be useful if used in the right context. Politicians who are very sure of themselves will lay down their ideas with very symmetrical poses because of their certainty.
Kubrick staged quite a few scenes with a deliberate symmetry to make his environments look imposing and threatening.
The unpleasant flatness of symmetry can be reduced by rotating the character a bit to create some perspective, or delaying an arm or leg when in motion.
It’s even more effective to stick a few twinning poses between asymmetrical ones. They will often pop out, ‘cause of their lack of wishy-washiness.
Same applies to staging.
To me, asymmetry is always better than symmetry unless you want a scene or character to pass off as incredibly blunt or imposing.
The only time I hate symmetry regardless of context is in the facial expressions, ‘cause that’s where the interest and humanity is.
J: Thought I was against it at first…………… forming the Rooks turns out to be a pretty good idea; with them, we have a force to counter the Blighters, and they do help with our search of the Piece of Eden.
J: She’s being a responsible older sister and leader for once, really.
E: Thank you! I aim to please. Especially my perfectionist little brother~
