Your opinion on shadman?

Very very very very very very bad material and horrible contrived art. Bad all around.

How about Guzma seeing his chubby S/O in a really cute bikini?

Also congratulations y’all have freckles in this story just bcos.

You stood before him in a simple black bikini with rainbow polka dots, chubby little body accentuated with the clingy material and bringing out aspects Guzma never knew lay under your multiple folds of clothes.

You had a pudgy little belly and arms, on your legs there was no trace of any sort of thigh gap, and you possessed a supple bottom that resembled the velvet skin of a peach. That drew his attention the most. For he had never seen such a lovely color with the lightest down of translucent velvet hairs that appeared to glimmer as the lighting captured your outline.

“What do you think?” you asked, turning around in a circle and showing off your body to him. “It’s brand new. Had to snatch it from some bitch who was running her mouth.”

The ensemble you had selected was very pretty, the material lay delicately over your skin making your belly round and your breasts pop. All over your entire body, freckles dotted the skin so numerous that Guzma could hardly stop to count them all, he would have easily lost count and been distracted by the bountiful flesh you possessed. While it may not have been first female body he had ever seen, still he was taken aback at how lovely he found you to be.

“Hey…” he breathed, “Ya look… GREAT!”

“Really? You think so?” you posed like a movie star, pouting your lips one moment and then grinning the next when Guzma reached out to you with grabby hands. He grabbed a handful of rear end, laughing maniacally when you squealed loudly.

“HEY!” you roared.

“Beep beep.” Guzma replied, that wicked grin never leaving his face.

Bookmarks: DIY

A simple tutorial on how to make your very own bookmarks.

Materials:

  • Photoshop
  • Laser Printer Paper (preferably 28lb, but 24lb is also fine)
  • Pretty Poster Board or Scrapbooking Paper
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors & Paper Trimmer
  • Laminator (if you don’t have one, you can buy one at WalMart for $20. They’re SUPER useful to have, especially if you make artsy stuff a lot.)
  • Bookmark Tassels (Optional)
  • 1/8 Inch Hole Punch (Optional)

Step One

First, determine the size of bookmarks you want to make. (Mine are typically 2″ x 6.5″.) When you’ve decided on a size that you like, create a new canvas in Photoshop with those dimensions, and make sure it is set to AT LEAST 300 DPI.

Step Two

Draw your bookmark design! Make sure all of your important stuff doesn’t get too close to your edges because you want to leave a tiiiiiny bit of room for error just in case you mess up when you cut them out.

Step Three

After your bookmark design(s) is done, create another new Photoshop canvas that is 8.5″ x 11″ and set to the same DPI as your bookmarks.

Drag and drop as many of your book mark designs as you can onto your new 8.5 x 11 canvas. Don’t put them very close together, though, as you want to leave enough room to comfortably cut them out later.

Step Four

Assuming you don’t have a laser printer, we’re gonna take a little trip to Staples/Office Depot/Office Max!

Save that canvas with all your bookmarks on it as a JPEG and put it on a flash drive. Grab a small stack of your own paper and put it in a folder (make sure you have a way to show the printer what type of paper it is. You may just wanna bring the whole pack with you, because I know some stores want to make sure you’re giving them laser printer paper to print on, as other paper types will mess up their machines)

Note: I’m not sure about Office Depot/Office Max, but I KNOW Staples will only charge around $0.50 per page to print your image out if you bring your own paper! ♥

Take the flash drive and your paper with you to your nearest office supply store.

Ask the printer there to print out however many copies you want. If you’re very particular about the size of the bookmarks, make sure to tell them to not have it set to “Fit to Size” and instead let it print at 100%.

Step Five

Once your bookmark copies are printed, it’s time to cut them out!

The best way to do this is to use a paper trimmer. You can get a cheap one from WalMart or Michaels for about $5. They’re SUPER useful to have and make cutting straight edges a million times easier.

The reason you want to cut them out before you glue them your poster board/decorative paper is because you want to be able to fit as many bookmarks as you can onto the posters so that you don’t waste any.

Step Six

Time to glue them to your poster(s)/scrap book paper!

I try to buy really unique posterboard that catches the eye and matches the colour schemes of my bookmarks. I usually end up getting metallic colours or holographic poster/paper because that’s what I personally like. I would advise staying away from anything that has textures, though, since you’re going to laminate these later.

Make sure you’re gluing your bookmarks to the BACK of the poster board.

Also, make sure you coat all edges and corners, as you don’t want anything to curl up. A good tip I find is lining any of your bookmark edges up to the edges of the poster board. That way it’s just one or two less edge(s) you have to cut off.


Step Seven

Time to cut out the bookmarks again!

Get as close to the bookmark’s edge as you can so you don’t leave any white poster board backing hanging off the edge. If you have to, it’s totally fine to cut off a millimeter of your bookmark design just to make sure you have a clean trim.


Step Eight

Laminate! Since I already have some Mettaton bookmarks laminated, I’ll use them for this example.

Make sure that when you slip your bookmarks into the lamination sheet, they have a decent amount of space between them. If they get too close, the lamination might not seal all of the way around each bookmark.

Step Nine

Once you get all of your bookmarks laminated, we once again have to cut them out.

It’s very important to leave about a third of a centimeter of lamination on the edge of your bookmarks. If you cut right along the edge of the bookmark, the lamination will eventually peal off, and we don’t want that. We want to keep it nice and sealed.

Be sure to trim the corners a little bit, since they can be kinda sharp and poke you pretty bad.

Step Ten

This part is completely optional, but I love to take an 1/8 inch hole punch and punch a little hole in the top of the bookmark and add a little tassel decoration.

You can find these tassels online from China on Ebay or Aliexpress for pretty cheap. The prices are all about the same no matter who you buy from, so I can’t really give a specific vendor who has the best prices. (Note: pretty obvious, but if you buy them within the US, you’re gonna pay a lot more.)

Bonus Info:

If none of my instructions have made any sense, this video does a wonderful job of explaining the process of bookmark making for artist alleys and whatnot.

Revenge of the Sith | Tidbit Tuesday | The Art of Getting Burned

The application process of the prosthetic makeup took over 3 hours and had to be repeated each time it’s used because the pieces were very delicate and couldn’t be re-used. The prosthetics were made of foam latex, which is a very soft, spongy material, and the edges were tissue thin so that the make-up artists could lose them into the skin. They had to meticulously put it all in like an artist would paint an oil painting. Because skin is translucent and foam latex is opaque they had to trick the camera into thinking that it could actually see all the blood beneath the surface of the skin, and all the veins, freckles and so on.

When the makeup was removed at the end of the day, the whole piece was destroyed including every piece that they stuck on that was meticulously artworked and detailed with highlights and shadow.  

It's okay to be a man who...
  • Is emotionally sensitive
  • Is honest about having feelings
  • Is open about having flaws
  • Likes cute and pretty things
  • Likes dressing in cute and pretty things
  • Is delicate
  • Is elegant
  • Is unsure whether it’s okay to be those things
  • Dances and sings with enthusiasm and heart
  • Empathizes with the feelings and experiences of others
  • Admits being wrong
  • Cries

And it’s understandable that you’re afraid to show all of that to a world that seems determined to erase it from you.

No matter what they say, you are who you are.

moon in the signs

aries - aries is young, they feel everything so strongly it hurts, sometimes the pain is good though. the sweetest friend you could want, with a big temper but a bigger heart. 

taurus - steadfast and slightly cold, the lunar taurean puts a lot of value on things because of the materialistic side of this sign. they are very loving though, soulmate material. 

gemini - moon in gemini makes for a flighty individual who thinks deeper than you would ever know. they know everything, and if you go well with them, they’ll show you everything. 

cancer - the moon is at home in cancer’s soft arms. good cooks, soft and glowing people, cancer moon wants home. home can be a place, a person, a feeling. be the person they call home. 

leo - big heart, big mouth. leo moon tends to feel everything with a glow, they smile bigger than most and have a great sense of humour. very warm people, they need their hands held sometimes. 

virgo - virgo moon is a critical position; whether to themselves or others, it isn’t meant harshly but honestly. they love you, they want you to see yourself the way they see you. listen with love in your ears.

capricorn - a hardship when young maybe. capricorn here is a harsh placement, but really all they need is a little love and care to truly flourish. be gentle with them. 

aquarius - lunar aquarians feel things different to you and i; even their emotions are unconventional. that doesn’t mean they’re unloveable or uncaring, they just need a little kindness to light them up. 

pisces - lunar pisceans are delicate. they float between this world and the next, feeling everything so strongly against their fragile bones. they need a tender hand to keep them stable.

title: One-Ply Promises

rating: t

pairing: Natsu Dragneel/Lucy Heartfilia

summary: Of all of the stupid shit Lucy has done while drunk, entering a contract with a demon probably takes the cake. The icing on said cake, however, is the fact that neither of the two know what the terms of the contract are. Until they figure it out, Lucy is stuck living with a demon who doesn’t really understand the concept of keeping a low profile.

chapter one: Always Read the Terms and Conditions

He has fucking horns.

“Hi.” The horned man is sitting on her desk and moving his legs back and forth as if he’s on a swing and not very cheap, breakable material. “I’m looking for someone.”

Lucy points towards the door. She is beyond hungover right now, and frankly, cosplayers hanging out in her room at - she checks her phone - nine in the fucking morning doesn’t begin to make her list of the top ten weirdest things to have gone down in res. It doesn’t even make her top fifty, really.

“You know who Lucy Heartfilia is?” Horned-man asks.

Should she call the cops? Probably. Is she going to? Probably not. Lucy bobs her head (bad move, bad move, gravity doubles down for a solid ten seconds what the fuck, physics-) and waves at her face listlessly. Horned-man brightens. The blonde feels her stomach roil in response. Ugh. It’s way too early to be that chipper for anyone.

“Hi! I’m E.N.D., but you can call me Natsu! I’m a demon. You made a contract with me last night.” He hops down and fishes around in his pocket as he walks towards her bed, retrieving a neatly folded square of toilet paper which he holds out to her. She squints. She can make out her signature but the rest looks a lot like her lecture notes when she’s doing them half asleep. Definitely her writing and definitely illegible.

“I was directed to this room after you signed it and then you showed up later, but you know how drunk people are; you could have been anyone just looking for an empty room to crash! So I had to wait to confirm,” he explains. “Now, do you remember what the terms of the contract are? Because I can’t read what you’ve written.”

Lucy can’t even remember the word for the colour of her walls at the moment, but she can’t vocalize that quip thanks to the desert that has made its home in her mouth. She settles for a thumbs down. Horned-man (Naruto? She swears it’s Naruto) laughs nervously. “We, uh, might have a problem.”

Besides the fact that I’ve somehow made a contract with a demon? Wait, what? Demon? Whoa, back up. Demon. Like, actual demon ohmygod what-

“I can’t get back to Hell until I fulfill the terms of this contract.”

Oh, hell.

“I’m gonna be stuck here with you,” he says. “So, uh. Hi?”

Lucy opens her mouth and her stomach decides that right then is the perfect time to empty itself all over Naruto-demon-dude’s white pants. Because what better way to greet her new roommate than with nacho-and-martini flavoured upchuck?

Saturn is very coaxed in the material, in boundaries, in self protection using logic. and Saturn is remarked upon for his wisdom, knowledge, and rationality. but the residual gluttony of Jupiter can delude Saturn, so Capricorn people, or people with Saturn in the 1st house, Saturn ruling the ascendant, or largely Saturnian influenced individuals can be overly self conscious, defensive, and protective of the inner state. these can be personalities that struggle letting people inside their vulnerable place. these people can seem overly self focused because Saturn is primarily focused on achieving his own expectations and containing/shielding the ego. these people can express the victim complex, constantly repeating their own shortcomings to others, i.e ‘I am such a horrible person I can’t understand why anyone would be friends with me’, projecting self neglect and contempt onto others and making themselves unapproachable and isolated
