My beautiful ReGenderization print came in the mail today! It took longer since I got such a huge size, but I had the perfect frame for it. It’s hand-carved, and I won it years ago, but nothing has deserved the frame until now. Thank you so much for making such a beautiful piece, Bunny!
Order yours here!
Wow! That looks so cool!
"You don’t have to feel alone anymore…"
the image is transparent! Drag across to see the rest.
I feel like these characters have the same qualities of feeling alone and creating a world of their own out of ice for comfort.
On role models
So often people talk about what terrible role models Rihanna and Nicki Minaj are, and what great role models Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are. To which I have to say…really?
Taylor Swift writes most of her songs about men she’s dated. She is cunning and saavy, especially when it comes to manipulating the media, but she hides that in order to maintain her sweet, “all-American” image. Selena Gomez is most famous for her relationship with Justin Beiber.
Rihanna has long maintained that she does not want to be a role model. She is young and living her life, and she owns her mistakes. She is unapologetic about her success. Nicki Minaj, whether on Twitter or in interviews, constantly reminds girls to succeed in school. She has made it clear that she is first and foremost a businesswoman looking after her family. After being betrayed and raped by ex-boyfriends, she has remained single for the past ten years. She started writing rhymes and rapping as a means to cope with her life, and she was eventually discovered when she posted her music on MySpace. Her life story is one of resilience and perseverance despite the odds.
The problem isn’t that Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez are role models. The problem is that we don’t allow women to be complex. We don’t allow different women with different life stories to be considered role models because we fear that complexity. God forbid they define their lives in terms other than men.
Okay, I’m going to make this post ONCE and that’s all.
Many of you have probably seen the above gif floating around the internet. It’s been reposted on Tumblr(one post has over 137K notes and wasn’t credited at all) what seems like a hundred times, it’s showed up on Imgur, Reddit, iFunny and other places around the internet. I’ve seen people fight about “posting it first” and arguing with others who had “reposted it from them”. I’ve seen people confuse it with behind the scenes footage from The Avengers(??) and I’ve seen people credit other cosplayers and cosplay groups for it.
This gif belongs to me. It was created last year around this time for fun and the original post had two other gifs that went along with it. So not only were myself and my fellow cosplaying friend not credited but the whole gifset wasn’t even seen. I want to set the record straight now because I’ve seen hundreds of comments around the internet of people asking where this came from and very few had the correct answer for it.
Original post: Do I look like a reindeer to you?
Loki: the-bucky-barnes (DA Account )
Tony Stark: colonel-bastard
And you can look at my Loki Cosplay Tag for other photos and gif sets(yes there are a lot more!).
PLEASE REBLOG THIS, I want to get the word out there as much as possible. And please, please, please do not steal and repost cosplay material from someone without properly crediting the source! Thank you!
