teenage girls are fucking mocked for liking things that are marketed towards them and for them then when theyre sick of being shit on for that and try to like things not specifically “for them” they get shit on for “pretending” and they cant win at all its a lose lose situation being a teenage girl
scouting out reblogs of your art for comments in the tags is like mining for gold yo and then its like

Laogai, the abbreviation for Láodòng Gǎizào, which means reform through labor, is a slogan of the Chinese criminal justice system and has been used to refer to the use of prison labor and prison farms in the People’s Republic of China. It is estimated that in the last fifty years, more than 50 million people have been sent to laogai camps.
One of the aims of these was the political and ideological reeducation (thought reform, coerce dissenters to embrace the Party and integrate as gears in it), reached through psychological torture and brainwashing.
Avatar is a cartoon for adults.
I would be extremely okay with it if they just went ahead and remade the Lion King as an animated movie but with humans
I dunno, inspired by the broadway or something.
….Don’t think about the logistics. Just do.
Christine’s original Masquerade costume.
At first glance very different from the current Star Princess costume - but not really, if you look closer at it. The corseted, sleeveless bodice with vertical seams, the ruffled V shaped collar and “puffed sleeves”, the knee-length bell shaped skirt, the mask on stick - those are elements kept in the revamped design.
What IS different, though, is how much stiffer the skirt was, with a partly exposed crinoline fundament, and the apron drape in front, and also decorated with pompons throughout. And of course the colours, but that goes without saying…
The accessories are also different - a tricorn hat with feathers, a lace choker, white stockings and white high heeled buckle shoes.
The original dress is referred to as white, but was made of of a shimmering silverish white fabric decorated with white lace and black piping. The costume was, as far as I know, never used other places than the original West End production, and it was in use there until late 1987.
By accident the costume design came my way earlier this year. It was used on a Phantom quilt fabric licensed by RUG. The designs printed on it had gotten new colours, none of them matched Bjørnson’s original design, and this one was featured in yellow with red pompons and red hair. I believe the original would have featured a black and white dress and Christine with brown hair. The design also features elbow length sleeves with engageants, I don’t think this was ever tried out on stage.

Minus the cardboard stiffness of the skirt, I love this design so much better than the current star princess costume with all the pink and purple and glitter. This one is much more elegant, I think, and a little less “80s Prom Barbie.” :D

My left butt cheek is more punk rock than you!
The only other new print I can churn out in time for Anime Boston. Hope to see you guys there!
Full band cover of the Adventure Time song “I’m Just Your Problem”, originally composed by Rebecca Sugar for the character of Marceline, re-done in a radio-friendly gothic metal kind of style. Vocals by Nicole Vaquerano. Guitar solo by Carlos (youtube.com/KarlosRock92).
SO … GOOOOOD.
I haven’t even watched as much Adventure Time as I should, but oh my fucking God this is fantastic.
To continue the pin-up idea I expressed earlier with Aoi. It was challenging to get a pose that had a “pin-up” quality to it, while adding in something of her personality. I rather like how this turned out though. I hope you do too. Enjoy! :D
