Otherkin is not a scientific theory.

It is not a fact that its believers are looking to prove true or false.

It is not an idea that Otherkin are trying to convince you that you have to believe.

Oherkin is a set of beliefs that come into being in response to emotions, intuitions and internal experiences that are personal and unique to each individual Otherkin.

Trying to disprove Otherkin is like trying to disprove that someone else’s boots are comfortable.

Take someone else’s boots and put them on and you say ‘these are uncomfortable, that’s a fact’. And you list all the things that make them uncomfortable. They pinch, they’re the wrong size, the material is worn through in places.

What you don’t see when you’re saying the boots are uncomfortable, is how they’ve stretched to fit their wearer. How the soles take the shape of their toes, how the worn fabric sits right at the bone of their ankle. You don’t see that these boots carried them up a mountain, and through a river, and home again without ever getting their feet wet.

Stop trying to disprove Otherkin. Give me back my boots.

Jeeves Wall Lamp $282USD
“The Jeeves Wall Lamp, a classic gentlemans bowler that looks like it has been thrown very hard at a wall!
This unique wall lamp by Innermost is composed of a wool felt hat with aluminium interior, in black with gold anodised interior.
Lamp measures H 13 cm / W 25 cm / D 23 cm
Lightsource: G9, max 25W (not included).
Recommended Bulb: Any G9 LED Bulb up to 500 lumen output, dimmable.
Temperature 2200 – 2700K.
The Jeeves and Wooster lights were inspired by the work of René Magritte and designed as a playful take on lighting with a real sense of cultural identity. The hat is an object that often associates its wearer with a particular society, heritage or race. The Bowler and Top Hat are classic British cultural icons reflecting a by gone era of imperialism, class divide and eccentricity. They are named after the author P.G.Wodehouse’s most infamous character double act - Bertie Wooster and Reginald Jeeves.
Innermost brings on a playful revolution in the field of lighting, stripping lamps of their stiff formality. Why not play with light the same way you would play with paintings at your walls? So here comes Jeeves - a fun character, perfectly able to light up your home in a unique fashion and at the same time a bearer of cheerfulness and humour.
This lamp is a design by Jake Phipps for Innermost. His work is characterized by a narrative yet functional aesthetic full of character and with a playful design elegance that aims to strike a strong emotional chord with the people that use them. Jake Phipps graduated from John Makepeace’s furniture design school, Parnham College, in 1999. In 2005, he set up his own design studio in London, concentrating on his own pieces.”

Homebrew Helmets

In my group’s D&D 3.5, we put armor and helmets into separate categories, sort of like in the Fallout games. In the original rules, it’s implied that some armor sets come with a helmet already, but in our game, no armor set comes with a helmet by default, and the helmet is treated as separate piece of armor.

I’m putting this here in case anyone wants to steal it for their own games. Hell, some of it’s already stolen from other tables. 

All helmets can be put into four different categories:

Chainmaille Coif: Sort of a hood made of steel links. Usually you’d have a little cap underneath unless you want to have chainmaille sitting directly on your head and be uncomfortable. 

Stats/Rules: +0.5 AC, -1 Listen, +5 AC against specifically head-based attacks, such as a mindflayer’s Brain Extraction. Can be worn along with other helmets. Wearer takes half damage from specifically head-based traps, such as Falling Rocks(Within reason. It can’t protect you from an entire boulder falling on your head.). Putting the coif on or taking it off is a full-round action, and it provokes an Attack of Opportunity in combat. The coif’s AC bonus is considered active during the Attack of Opportunity, whether taking it off or putting it on. If the Attack of Opportunity hits, the action is canceled, and so is your turn. Cannot be removed by a successful Disarm. Cannot be worn on top of another chainmaille coif. 

Examples: 


Non-Facial Helmets: Any solid helmet that doesn’t cover the wearer’s face below his or her eyes. Helmets with nose-guards and cheek-guards still count unless the guards come directly under or around the wearer’s eyes. You’d also probably have a little cap under this one, or leather straps inside. Wearing metal armor directly on your skin is not recommended. 

Stats/Rules: +1 AC, +10 AC against specifically head-based attacks, such as a mindflayer’s Brain Extraction. Wearer is immune to specifically head-based traps, such as Falling Rocks(Again, within reason.). Can be worn with a chainmaille coif; the stats just combine. Much like in real life, there is virtually no downside to wearing a helmet like this. It’ll save your life.  Putting the helmet on your head or taking it off is a free, safe action on the first round of combat. Beyond the first round of combat, it is still a free action, but provokes an Attack of Opportunity. The helmet’s AC bonus is considered active during the Attack of Opportunity, whether taking it off or putting it on. If the Attack of Opportunity hits, the action is canceled, but your turn is not. Can be removed by a successful Disarm, but not at the same time as a weapon. 

Examples: 


Full-facial Helmets: Helmets that guard the wearer’s face to the extent that they obstruct his or her peripheral vision and may make it difficult to breathe. Same thing about the cap or leather straps built in. Even helmets that don’t cover the entire face are a part of this category, so long as there is metal under or around the eyes.

Stats/Rules: +3 AC, -10 Spot, -4 Search, -4 Listen +10 AC against specifically head-based attacks, such as a mindflayer’s Brain Extraction. Wearer is immune to specifically head-based traps, such as Falling Rocks(Again, within reason.). Can be worn with a chainmaille coif; the stats just combine. Putting the helmet on your head or taking it off is a free, safe action on the first round of combat. Beyond the first round of combat, it is still a free action, but provokes an Attack of Opportunity. The helmet’s AC bonus is considered active during the Attack of Opportunity, whether taking it off or putting it on. If the Attack of Opportunity hits, the action is canceled, but your turn is not.  Can be removed by a successful Disarm, but not at the same time as a weapon.

Examples: 

(The chainmaille on this one counts as part of the helmet. It is not a Chainmaille Coif.)


Visored Helmets: Any helmet with a hinged or removable visor. These helmets have a few different rules to them. 

Stats/Rules with Visor Down: +2 AC, -10 Spot, -4 Search. 

Stats/Rules with Visor Up: +1 AC

General Stats/Rules: -4 Listen +10 AC against specifically head-based attacks, such as a mindflayer’s Brain Extraction. Wearer is immune to specifically head-based traps, such as Falling Rocks(Again, within reason.). Can be worn with a chainmaille coif; the stats just combine. Changing the visor’s position is a free, safe action always. The visor can be destroyed by a successful Sunder, but not at the same time as a weapon. If the visor is destroyed, it is permanently stuck in its current position until repaired. 

Examples will be added by reblog because apparently I’ve hit a picture limit or something.

-A natural and universal healer, conducting healing energy to those within close proximity to it
-Has a naturally calming effect, which can be useful in deepening into meditation, or finding relief from anxiety or insomnia
-Can increase one’s sense of inner stability and balance, and because of this can be helpful in finding relief from overindulgence in food, alcohol, drugs, or harmful/ addictive personalities (including one’s own)
-A creative protector, protects its carrier/wearer from both self-deception and harmful magic by first absorbing the negative or harmful energy, then transmuting it into positive energy and broadcasting that back out.

Project MESA (Mechanicanized Exo-Skeletal Armor).

An experimental suit made using blue prints for pre-war exosuits worn in harsh environments and intense combat. Using nuclear fusion to power it’s hydraulics, the suit itself increases the physical strength of the wearer, along with making their bodies able to handle more ballistic damage.

Its sheer weight allows it to be a powerful weapon from a fall, even absorbing the shock of falls up to 300 yards with no damage to the suit or the wearer.

Notably, punches from even the weakest man become that of fully trained Hunter-Killers, and also expands this to melee weaponry. Various outter coverings to further enhance its power in defending specially trained soldiers are in developmemt, and deployment will be possible for fully armored suits will be possible in 4 to 5 years, due to working on other projects and fine tuning to assist in Stonefield Inc.’s medical application variant, due to a long standing contractual agreement between Professor Chern Noble and the Stonefield family.

This ancient Japanese school has the smallest student body of the eleven great wizarding schools and takes students from the age of seven (although they do not board until they are eleven). While day students, wizarding children are flown back and forth to their homes every day on the backs of a flock of giant storm petrels. The ornate and exquisite palace of Mahoutokoro is made of mutton-fat jade, and stands on the topmost point of the ‘uninhabited’ (or so Muggles think) Volcanic island of Minami Iwo Jima.

Students are presented with enchanted robes when they arrive, which grow in size as they do, and which gradually change colour as the learning of their wearer increases, beginning a faint pink colour and becoming (if top grades are achieved in every magical subject) gold. If the robes turn white, this is an indication that the student has betrayed the Japanese wizard’s code and adopted illegal practices (which in Europe we call 'Dark’ magic) or broken the International Statute of Secrecy. To 'turn white’ is a terrible disgrace, which results in instant expulsion from the school and trial at the Japanese Ministry for Magic. Mahoutokoro’s reputation rests not only on its impressive academic prowess, but also on its outstanding reputation for Quidditch, which, legend has it, was introduced to Japan centuries ago by a band of foolhardy Hogwarts students who were blown off course during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe on wholly inadequate broomsticks. Rescued by a party of wizarding staff from Mahoutokoro, who had been observing the movements of the planets, they remained as guests long enough to teach their Japanese counterparts the rudiments of the game, a move they lived to regret. Every member of the Japanese Quidditch team and the current Champion’s League winners (the Toyohashi Tengu) attributes their prowess to the gruelling training they were given at Mahoutokoro, where they practise over a sometimes turbulent sea in stormy conditions, forced to keep an eye out not only for the Bludgers but also for planes from the Muggle airbase on a neighbouring island.

So today Rowling revealed the detais of the japanese wizarding school and since I wanted to do a miyusawa quidditch au for a while I seized the moment 

BUT I THINK I EXAGGERATED A BIT. I practically created the uniform from scratch because I have problems. And I imagined them wearing an hakama, the common ones japanese people wore during 1920-30 (I took Haikara san ga tooru as reference for that period’s hakama, that’s why they have boots instead of geta)
And since: 
“Students are presented with enchanted robes when they arrive, which grow in size as they do, and which gradually change colour as the learning of their wearer increases, beginning a faint pink colour and becoming (if top grades are achieved in every magical subject) gold.”
I imagined the hakama trousers to change colors and the rest of the kimono black. I know Rowling said they have a changing-color robe but….. I hope she’s not gonna making them wear western-wizard-style type of clothing! 

For the quidditch part, I don’t know if there are houses and if they have colors so I left them uncolored. I based the uniforms on karate kimono + a robe over it. 
You know  where this is going tho. Miyuki is the keeper and captain of the team while Sawamura is a substitute seeker (and maybe a chaser?). Sawamura has a lot of potential but his way of flying is unpredictably and he’s not as fast as the team’s official seeker, Furuya. 
But Miyuki truly believes in Sawamura’s talent ( ღ’ᴗ’ღ )

Wrought Plastic Corset

Once again, I decided about a month before the deadline to enter the Foundations Revealed competition. Because inspiration always strikes at the last possible minute.

I opted to use the theme “Intersection of Light, Black and White” rather than the historical pattern. I’ve been meaning to play with thermoplastic corsets for a long time now but had never had quite the right project as an excuse or the funds available. I finally gave in, especially once I read the prompt and it mentioned wrought iron as a potential source of inspiration. Wrought iron is a serious weakness of mine, and I’ve always found it incredibly beautiful and inspirational, so I decided to run with that in combination with a clear thermoplastic.

I wanted to play with how the transparency of the base corset would combine with the decoration and the wearer’s skin tone. The fact that with the plastic I can get a completely transparent result, in comparison to the more standard corsetry mesh that not only has color but also needs boning channels, means greater influence of the wearer on the appearance of the actual garment, which I’m excited to explore with different models. In the case of a belted overlayer, it creates the illusion that just the decoration is doing the cinching, which is a really cool effect when viewed from a distance. 

I took the opportunity to also play with my new corsetry form! I draped a pattern in paper, since it would act more like the final product than muslin would, and created the base corset out of clear thermoplastic.

The outer layer is a separate piece, made of another thermoplastic, wonderflex. I wanted the ability to be versatile, and the clear thermoplastic doesn’t have the self-adhering qualities of other thermoplastics, so attachment would have been difficult to hide given the transparency of the base layer. I’ve also made a couple of other outer layers that can be switched out, so it can be used for very different looks.

I really loved working with this material, and I can’t wait to explore it more! I’m already in process for a mini collection with it that’s going to play even more with the fun properties of the material.
