wardrobe talk

What’s the most surprising thing about having Mr. Evans here as a scene partner that we would know about? What did you find out when working with him?

The Birds and the Bees (Jughead x Reader)

Imagine: You’re hopelessly in love with your boyfriend, Jughead Jones. When the subject of physical intimacy comes up one day with your best friends, you find yourself afraid and in doubt.


Saturdays were one of your favorite days of the week.

Veronica would pull up in her luxury car and take you and Betty to the Galleria outside of town. You both would follow her around as she surveyed the newest imports and replenished her gorgeous wardrobe, talking and laughing the whole time. The wares of the Galleria were far above anything you could ever afford with your minimum-wage income, but you adored the two girls you would spend the day with.

Veronica always had the best gossip. Mostly passed along from Kevin, who refused to join (”I will not play into that gay stereotype!”), Veronica always had stories ranging from the scary to the scandalous to the just plain hilarious.

“And the cross-country team caught her getting it up the ass on a stump in the woods!” Veronica said, laughing over her kale smoothie.

“Ronnie!” Betty scolded, face red. You could tell she was suppressing laughter as well, sipping on her strawberry smoothie.

Anyway,” Veronica said, slapping her hands on the patio table in finality. “What about you, (Y/N)?” She grinned devilishly.

“Got any good sex stories yet?”

About the softer clothing when courting Alec, I do think that's part of it, but almost all of their encounters also take place at Magnus' home, where he seems to dress more comfortably and openly. Because when he comes to the institute to do the wards/check the forsaken, he's definitely also dressed darker, and the still definitely very much courting Alec

I agree!! I don’t mean to suggest his wardrobe revolves 100% around Alec in S1 since that is a bit of a disservice to Magnus’s character. More that it’s sort of influenced when circumstances call for it?

Like, as a result of being on business to the Institute in 1.08/1.09, I’d say Magnus doesn’t want to look too soft and friendly since he’s also dealing with other Shadowhunters regardless of Alec but it’s still quite a softer look compared to his others. He’s in velvet, there are extra sparkles around his eyes, and he’s got that fluffy silk cravat with a flexible jacket collar. Maybe it’s just me, but I just want to reach in and squish my fingers into his clothes?

It’s the same for the wedding, so squishable:

I feel like the combination of velvet + clean shaven makes him much gentler. There’s not quite as many hard edges to him, unlike 1.04 where his jacket is a bit boxier + that stiff snakeskin collar:

And then of course that infamous battle outfit in 1.12, also boxy and stiff:

Granted, he’s also wearing velvet in 1.13, but it’s got metal detailing all over it and he has that crazy ring which really offsets the whole thing: 

Either way, I’m super excited for more in S2 because Magnus seems to have a Look™ that he’s constantly tweaking depending on the image he’s presenting and it’s just really interesting to examine that. His clothes are lovely yes, but it’s also so deliberately pieced together for whatever situation he’s walking into. He definitely picks out his wardrobe in the same way Jace might pick and choose between types of Seraph blades.

Whenever I see pictures of GRRM wearing his silver vests or purple suspenders or something, I think about how he said “Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli.” It’s as if GRRM’s outfits are an advertisement of his craft, the way Gendry fashioned a bull helmet for himself. As if GRRM is only a wardrobe away from a bard walking down the streets of King’s Landing, crying out to be heard over the din, “Dreams for sale, tales old and true, stories of wonder!”

i think it's really cool&interesting that katie mcgrath never actually trained to be an actress, but she turned out to be really good anyways! do you know of any interviews where she talks about learning to act or stuff like that?

Hey anon! Sorry for the delay!

I am always really excited to see when fans realize how far she has come as an actress, especially without training. I have a couple sources here where she mentions her experiences and how she got started and started to come into her own.

I’ve got my tea so I could sit back and do a little digging from some old ones I have saved. Most of these were from her time on Merlin.

From the wardrobe assistant to superstar: How Merlin actress Katie McGrath stole the show - In the first half, she explains how she became and actress and jokes about being a nightmare for those in wardrobe (2009).

Katie McGrath Talks Merlin - Katie briefly discusses the exciting yet daunting task of playing Morgana, what drew her to the role/series, working with Madonna, and the biggest challenge of being an actor (2011).

Katie McGrath, Merlin - Katie talks a little about her talent in playing good vs. evil, and scenes that are the most challenging for her (2012).

‘Merlin’ Katie McGrath Q&A: ‘I’ve been privileged to be part of this’ - Katie discusses gaining confidence as an actress while playing Morgana, learning from actors such as C. Morgan, A. Head and C. Dance, and working with prosthetic make-up for the first time (2012).

Slasher’s Latest Suspect/Victim: Katie McGrath’s Sarah Bennett - Katie talks playing a female character in horror, how she got the role, the challenges of not reading as Morgana, and a future where she may no longer be able to rely on her eyebrows and jawline for work! (2016).

@ that last one… she knows… and she tortures us anyway!

Hope these help! Happy reading!

Just the way you are

Sooo ! I wrote this for the wonderful @reioka! I really hope you like your wing fic! :)

Tony groans and rolls back to his other side, but that hurts even more. He can’t lie on his back at all, so he turns onto his tummy. Better. But now he is awake anyway. “Good morning, Sir.” says Jarvis and Tony opens his eyes. 

“Define good.” Tony mutters into his pillow. God he doesn’t want to stand up, or get out of bed for that matter, but he has this meeting with Pepper and the executive board about the new arc reactor that he already used for the energy in the tower.

“The sun is shining, Sir.” answers Jarvis and without another warning he opens the blinds. Tony whines. Not that there was anyone who could hear it. Tony turns his head to his right and sighs.

Carefully he pets the cold side of the bed next to him. He wishes there would be someone to wake up to. Someone who would take him just the way he is.

“Sir?” asks Jarvis and Tony just nods. He sits up and hisses in pain, when his wings brush against the headboard of the bed.

His wings.

More like what is left of them.

“Which colour today, Sir?” asks Jarvis and opens Tony’s wardrobe. Tony stands up and goes over the wardrobe. Jarvis isn’t talking about his suits, shoes or even his sunglasses. 

He is asking Tony what wings he wants to wear today.

“Blue and white.” Tony whispers then and Jarvis pull the wings up. Tony bites his bottom lip and nods. They look beautiful. They were the first wings he made for himself…after…

The wings are a really light baby-blue and the tips are completely white.  If the sun shines on them, they are so bright that Tony can feel jealous stares on him when he wears them. Yeah they are beautiful.

But they aren’t real.

I have a loooooot of headcanons about a four year time jump with the Voltron team, so I’m gonna start putting that stuff here.

Pidge is first, and I have a lot of stuff for her, but we’ll start with this: She ends up losing, in her words, “a shit ton of fingers” from an explosion when she was trying to disarm a Galra weapon. I’ll do a better picture of her prosthetics later, because I have a lot of cool ideas for them but for now, this is what I got.

anonymous asked:

honestly im really interested in the list of canon thing you found!! pls make a list

you asked >B)

so, all of the evidence towards dave being trans is SUPER subtle and mostly wardrobe based.

the main problem with it is that a lot of the context clues are based off of a cisnormative worldview, which doesn’t surprise me because andrew hussie is a cis guy and often writes in a a cisnormative way but here goes;

  • so first off lets talk about wardrobe as a child. we know that john has a spades shirt and dave comparatively has a heart shirt and since card suits are a recurring theme we could just leave it there. theres a bunch of speculation about why hussie gave dave the heart but heres mine;

    daves toxic masculinity arc indicates that bro is a man with a very homophobic, cisnormative, hypermasculine mindset. idk if you’ve ever seen a cis person like this try to pick out clothes for their kid but tldr i don’t think bro strider would give a heart shirt to his kid if he thought he was a boy. furthering that i do think he was vaguely accepting of dave being a guy but resultingly turned up the heat on training and forced dave constantly to “prove” himself as a guy in order to be validated. this would really cause some emotional constipation about sexuality and identity tbh.

  • then we have his infamous tank top+long sleeved shirt combo theory. to a lot of trans guys the next best thing is layering especially if they’re not allowed to have a binder. for this i feel like its a mixture of bro not getting dave a binder because why would he be that nice + the fact that dave at 13 probably wouldn’t be very developed yet, just enough to be uncomfortable and have to layer his clothes.

    i personally like to think of it like a loose tank over a tight compression shirt, which bro actually WOULD buy dave because it’s a garment designed for sports and training.

  • oh boy! my favorite! dave + suits. in case you didn’t notice, every single outfit dave alchemized is a suit. this goes back to the layering sitation but ALSO, in my experience as a trans guy who hangs out with other trans guys, we all wanna look a little dapper sometimes. especially when we first get that freedom of wardrobe. that’s not to say ALL trans guys are like that of course so don’t assume anything, but i perceive daves thing for suits as a very trans guy thing.

  • his hangup with being attracted to guys is dubiously indicative of being trans, but the fact that his masculinity hinges on who he’s attracted to is a red flag. i can’t tell you how invalidating to my identity it is when people assume or imply that im straight because i like dudes. i can’t imagine what a 13 year old would be like in that position, with the hypermasculine upbringing that he has.

  • the actual obsession with dicks. like this is really common among young teenage boys in general but daves sense of humor being irony its easy to make the connection of: dave, drawing many dicks: haha get it its ironic bc i dont have one lmao

  • hella jeff is trans (NSFW link; it’s a canon sbahj comic, tw for an incest joke) and you’d think that as much as dave likes to draw dicks he wouldn’t have been shy about putting one on hella jeff if he were cis but he’s not.

    there are a lot of theories about how dave self-inserts his insecurities in sbahj through hella jeff too especially about being attracted to dudes.

  • “one of you fuckers thought i was a girl” from this conversation with tavros.

    because of the context this is probably the most dubious bit of evidence towards trans dave out there. we know that female trolls are stronger/more violent, so this could be in reference to that.

    however, some female trolls(the adults, namely) are shown to have breasts, and i know by the time i was thirteen i’d already developed them, so it makes sense to me that he could be mistaken for a girl because of this.

    it also indicates pretty clearly that he was misgendered by a troll and it bothered him so much that he had to bring it up later.

I’m going to say something now. Deep breath- BEAUTY AND THE BEAST IS MY FAVOURITE DISNEY FILM. I know everyone is going to say this now the live action is coming out so I thought I’d just say it now. I had a video of it when I was little and would desperately hope my wardrobe could talk! It’s also the first film me, Liam and Darcy all watched together so it’ll always be special for that too. 💛 http://ift.tt/2lkxbRh
