Oh god comic con was so fun, I met several fannibals who recognized me but no one else who cosplayed as will graham or Hannibal. I found one Hannibal merchandise there and bought it, of course, and there was plenty of Sherlock and Dr who and I ran into an Elsa and Anna who were just supper well done and Anna loved my cosplay and insisted I get help as soon as possible and gave me a long hug- it seemed other people really wanted to give will graham a hug as well.
So there was this outrage against the depiction of rape in the comic, Kick Ass 2. Enough so that the movie adaptation had the scene changed. This is a series known for its brutal violence which includes murders. Why is murder not as controversial as rape?
Trigger warning for any of my followers. Just scroll away if you have to.
Because murder has no immediate survivors who have to suffer through the experience of being brutalized and rape survivors do? Because there is a HUGE culture around rape and how the victim somehow led to their rape, but nobody really accuses a murder victim of being sooo easy to kill or that they were asking for it. Because it’s used so dismissively. Because there’s more evidence of a murder, but most rape goes unreported.
Like, seriously Anon? And you must be seriously cowardly and expecting some backlash since you are on Anonymous.
Also, that rape scene you spoke of? Just another attempt for Millar to be OMG SO EDGY LOOK RED MIST MOTHER FUCKER JUST RAPED A GIRL.
No. It’s not edgy. It’s not dark. This happens too frequently.
Ever since last night I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my brass fingernails. First of all. NO, they are not prosthesis. i have them for a specific reason.
Here’s what they look like:
HERE’s is the reason:
I bite my nails all the time. constantly, idly, without thinking.
If you’re like me, and love giving back scratches, then having no nails is a problem:
Here’s how chose to fix this problem:
Shoot bullet, collect casing.
The bullets have a taper inside. we will want the broader side of the taper to be outward on our nails, and the thinner side against the rear of the nail so there is no jutting up of material when they are glued on. Here’s what that taper looks like, one cylinder is flipped over to show how thick it is at the base:
clip, bend, and trim into a nail shape:
sand for a fine (BUT NOT CUTTING SHARP) edge on the front and smooth edges.
Glue with Krazy glue, it’s the best.
it’ll dry quick. NOW TRY BACK SCRATCHES. LOOK AT THIS DIFFERENCE.
Amazing. the nails will stay on for about a week at a time before working themselves loose, when that happens just scrape the glue off and reapply.
Unless you happen to have reached into the closet and snagged it on your shelves and broke the nail off on your pinky cuz holy god that hurt. reapply anyways.
Also these work as screwdrivers, knives and various other multi-tools at the tip of your finger, so that’s pretty rad. I don’t know how odd i should feel about having done this, but i must say; it’s handy as hell and really fun to have nails again.
OH, also you can shine them with “brasso” or something but screw that, I’ve tried that and they get mirror bright and really annoyingly shiny. not my thing.
Oh my gosh, you'd be an AMAZING Anna!! I loved Frozen! Are you going to post progress pics? I can't wait to see what you make! :)
You want progress pics?
OH. I’LL GIVE YOU PROGRESS PICS. MUAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA
Mittens from scratch!
Wow. Very embroidery. Much bodice. So stitch.
The skirt! This is when I was pinning the pleats and about to make the waist band and put in the zipper.
Very cape much warm
Test run for Anna’s makeup/hair! I need to trim my bangs, hence my hand holding my head to try and put them in the right place. And the turtleneck will become her blouse because it was only 3 dolllllarrrrs and that’s cheaper than making it from scraaaatch.
