I know there are a bunch of posts about how to get gender neutral pronouns (they, their) on Facebook, but it always involves using developer tools which some people are not always comfortable with so I was thinking and did this thing real quick to turn it into 3 steps for…

How to contour and highlight your face!
Here is an image I found on where natural highlights are on men and women, a perfect reference for beginning drag kings and queens like me.
guys this is a lifesaver for cosplay! espECIALLY if you’re doing troll/painted up cosplay and want to blend to make your features actually stand out no matter what gender the character you’re cosplaying is
Just wanted to share an photo article I’m sure you’ll have already received. This is Howard Schatz’ images of Female Athlete’s from the HuffingtonPost, originally appearing in his 2002 book, “Athlete”. The article states that the images have become popular again to remind us “the diversity of women’s bodies.” I think seeing these powerful and graceful women’s bodies - real bodies that have been shaped by hard work and determination - makes clear just how different builds are, even among the physically fit. Looking at the line up, I recall some of the drawing tutorials I’ve come across for depicting people of larger size and with different body types. I understand that a female super hero will more than likely be physically fit but even among the physically fit there is great variety as we can see in these photos. I hope these serves as a resource to artists and as inspiration to women and girls to see that there are a variety of shapes even among the physically fit.
I remember linking to this before but not so explicitly. I think this is a nifty photo spread for people to get an idea for the diversity of (abled-bodied) athletic women’s bodies, so I’m putting up again. :)
the blank template for anybody who might be interested. the file is kind of big bc i like drawing at a high magnification

I created a Tumblr theme to make putting up a webcomic quick and easy. It includes just enough customisable features to make each install unique.
You can see a preview of it here:
Password - WHIZ
You can download it from - http://www.tumblr.com/theme/37061
- All and any feedback is welcome.
UPDATE: Notes Styling has been fixed
this is exactly what im looking for and is great. there are some things missing from the install, should i email about them? if you read this, here are the bugs:
- there’s no permalink showing date/tags/etc
- no option for the “stay connected” widget
- current disqus code doesnt work (had to change it to this code: http://help.disqus.com/customer/portal/articles/758168-tumblr-manual-installation-instructions ), there isnt a link for comments either in block:posts (had to add manually)
-no option to make comic permalinks either navigate or link to the post
*add a style option to make the navigation bar (Archive, Link, Etc) a color of your choice like in the demo template
*add a style option to make the header background transparent (like in demo template also)
*add optional reblog link at the bottom of posts (very important i think!)
otherwise this is great. i forsee this becoming super popular once the kinks are ironed out
this has been in my radar and i’ve been seeing other tumblr artists using this. it’s something i may keep in mind for starting a small series and garnering interest for bigger projects
This is me in my usual bra, note the 34D/32DD boobs.
And here is the binder, almost completely flat.
This thing is awesome. It is remarkably comfortable, too. Feels a bit like wearing a sports bra. I got it from Love Boat, this one(http://www.lesloveboat.com/shop/product_info.php?products_id=122&osCsid=57cc209b6d95c6c3efa2d87a2325b6c2)
Reblogging again for my trans* and genderfluid buddies and also all female cosplay friends.
I finished up my mushroom log lamp thing! Here was the tutorial I referenced.
I really like it overall, but it looks a little sloppier than I’d like for a few reasons. Firstly, I had to use an air-drying clay for the mushroom stalks, since the only LED strand I had couldn’t be baked into the polymer clay the way you’re supposed to (I don’t know how to rig up a bare wire LED setup and just went with an Ikea Xmas LED strand that I had on hand, which limited the length of each mushroom stalk (which is why some of them are so short and stubby) but otherwise worked out okay). The air-drying clay was difficult to work with, not the same texture as the polymer clay, and despite careful sanding still looks lumpy. Oh well. I also accidentally burnt the translucent polymer clay mushroom caps in the oven, blackening a lot of the edges, and I was too irritated to redo them so I just trimmed away the worst of the burnt areas. The shapes are a little mussed up because of that, but they look decent enough from a few feet away, and I have enough clay to redo them in the future if I ever feel the need. (for reference, I used a total of one and a half 2oz blocks of Primo translucent white polymer clay.)
For the log, there’s a field near my house that has a ton of chopped manzanita branches all piled up, so I grabbed one with a nice gnarly shape I liked (I also like that it’s a big log with a handle, so I can be silly and pretend it’s Thorin’s shield). :B It started out all gray and cracked and gnarly, but after a lot of sanding and washing and oiling, it’s all nice and smooth deep brown-red the way manzanita is supposed to be. Although with all the glue and clay mess I ended up making, it takes a way from the effect somewhat. I do think I probably need to re-oil the wood (I’m just using butcher block oil, so it’s safe to work with and have around.) To hook up the lights, I drilled holes through the underside of the log and ran the LED string up through the holes, then hot-glued the LEDs in place and wrapped them with the air-drying clay to form the stalks.
It’s not perfect, but it’s cute and goes well with my little dwarf/Tolkein/etc area I’ve got going in this corner of my desk area. :) <3 All in all it wasn’t THAT hard, just time consuming. Honestly I think the hardest part was just sanding and prepping the wood. Someone more experienced (and patient) with delicate clay work could probably do a much nicer job. :)
This is gorgeous!!! I am going to have to give this a try.
I’ve never come across such a wide variety of colours in tights!
Here’s a link to their colour guide to help find the perfect shade.
I can apply it to other things like TREES, SPIKEY THINGS, FUR, FEATHERS, EXPLOSIONS
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
omg that lighter color thing
I never got it
mind = blown
I NEVER KNEW THE LIGHTER COLOR PART
OH MY GODDD
