they at my tailor

In a move tailor-made to offend me, my congressman tried to honor George Washington on his birthday with a meme mis-attributing a quote from George Washington Carver to him. The layers of offense! To honor a perfectionist on his birthday with a careless mistake! To attribute an accomplished black man’s words to a white man. To ignore and be ignorant of the actually useful things George Washington said about non-partisanship and religious tolerance. 

I know it’s just some unpaid staffer with shitty google skills, but still. STILL.

Through careful engineering, I have managed to casually cosplay both of my precious pure sons at once in a fashion amalgamation. Even better, it’s tailored to my aesthetic. Totally gonna try a full black and white version for work.

Shoutout to @shippy-things for designing the skirt! It’s amazing and may or may not be making me want to buy a small petticoat so I can floof it around.

anonymous asked:

I'm sorry you're so sick and congratulations! I just wanted to ask where is a good place to get costumes/cosplay for things like Les Mis? I love your cosplays but I'm having trouble finding my own costume

Ah, honestly? Everywhere? I got the majority of my cosplay from charity shops/thrift stores. I did eventually get a proper historically accurate shirt, waistcoat, and pair of trousers, but those were my wedding clothes so they were expensive and tailored and I wouldn’t have ever bought them unless for my wedding.

Generally all I can say is shop around! Etsy is good too.

Blog Feedback Time!

So! I’ve been doing this for a little while, and I just wanted to get a feel from you guys about what you like, don’t like, or would like changed. 

Before you guys start just saying “It’s your blog! Do what you want!” (Which is a super nice thing and I really appreciate that you are all so supportive) I’d like to clarify that about half of the fun I have with this is watching you guys enjoy it. So what I want is actually to do what you want.

So tell me what you like! What you don’t like! If you want me to keep doing exactly what I’m doing, awesome! But would you like more posts about the other Avengers or less? More art or no art? Shorter answers to questions? Separate tags for when Bucky is giving life advice? (Should I stop giving life advice? Have you guys figured out that I’m probably not a good person to get life advice from yet?) Less nonsense in the tags? It’s pretty hard to hurt my feelings, guys, so fire away! Does the thing I do where everything is a title drive you crazy? Tell me about it! Should I stop posting Bucky stuff and just post pictures of my cats and doves? Because I WILL TOTALLY DO THAT YOU GUYS DONT EVEN KNOW. 

Sorry, I got a little excited there. But please, tell me what’s working for you guys and what isn’t! I can’t promise that I will 100% make the change you want, because other people may disagree, but please tell me! Feel free to use asks, messages, or replies to this post.

Modern AU: The Sun Summoner, The Tailor, The Squaller and The Warrior.

 I am not ruined. I am ruination.

I am a soldier of the Second Army. This is where I belong.

I am the Sun Summoner. It gets dark when I say it does.

I am a warrior. I am nearly as dangerous with a saber, a pistol or my bare hands.
