nothing will fuck you up as much as the realization that there’s no real reason the alphabet needs to be in order
For all the work I’ve done and progress I’ve made I still need to make shoes and sculpt a face for my Skull Kid cosplay.
The lack of time I have before I leave makes me sick to my stomach and anxious constantly. But imma keep trying.
It’s okay hun, we’re all in the same boat right now
We can do it!

Dedicated to the-awesome-little-things
Good morning from Pamyu
Because conversations became texting, arguments became phone calls, feelings became subliminal messages online, sex became easy, the word “love” gets used out of context, insecurities have become your way of thinking, getting jealous became a habit, trust has been lost, cheating became an accident, leaving became the only option & being hurt became natural.
If today has been rough for you - for whatever reason, no matter what you’re going through, just know people care about you. I appreciate you, I adore you, and I know you’ve got huge things ahead of you in life.
These two guys are roommates and I fucking love hearing about the shit they do to each other
Quick Cosplay Tip!
Need to photograph fabric to compare colours, or show someone else what you’ve bought, but your camera just isn’t getting the colour right? Give it a reference point!
Most cameras will judge white balance off of two things: Something white, and/or skin tone.* Stick a sheet of white paper to the side of your fabric (It needs to be largish so the camera will register, I usually stick it about 1/4-1/3 of the photo frame) when you take your photo, or put your hand or foot in the shot. Bam, your colours will be MUCH closer to reality.**
Remember: ALWAYS TAKE A PHOTO OF YOUR FABRIC BEFORE YOU BUY IT. It’s so important to know how something will look under a flash, which is how most of your photos will be taken at con!
Hope this helps!
*Camera processors are still pretty racially programmed so this works best with white skin, but depending on camera and model you may find success if you’re a PoC. Best I can say is trial and error there.
**This does not promise to fix the whole ‘things on my monitor look different than real life’ issue. It just helps.
This video reel makes me wonder how often really spectacular practical effects have been misidentified as “shitty cg” by people who like to cry about anything that doesn’t look like Harryhausen Dynamation.
Because I’m very sure I’ve heard those sort of comments directed towards a lot of the creatures showcased here when they appeared in their respective films.
my mind is being blown apart
I really, really have a deep admiration for animatronics artists. Like animators, it’s one thing to make a 2D or 3D character and make it look convincing in still, but it’s a whole other level to make it move and react as if it were a real thing. Hats off to you guys. c:
