Lord Helix protect the rest of the team. Bloody Sunday, indeed.
Just a heads up, I’m now doing a research blog about homestuck, and its fandom, for one of my classes. You are welcome to go and follow it at http://413research.tumblr.com/ Also if you see me post homestuck things here that aren’t normally what i might post, or talking about it as research notes, it means i probably just reblogged to the wrong blog.
Okay that took forever, I’m sorry. Here’s the tutorial on how I made my Journey costume! I’ve included a photoset of the tutorial, and below are the links that will take you to the pattern PDFs (the first is a 24 x 36 file, so happy print tiling!). For Illustrator-savvy folks, you can also dive into the pattern files and manipulate them yourselves.
Side note: I am not a professional seamstress/fashion designer, so I’m sorry if there’s inaccuracies or errors or dubious advice, it’s more of a step by step of how I did it with helpful patterns!
Any questions, use the Ask box, also! I’m happy to offer any help or advice! And I’m sorry, but I do not take commissions!
If you have problems downloading, let me know! Don’t abuse my bandwidth, plz
EDIT: A lot of people have been having sizing troubles with the hood lately, not sure if it’s just the new file I uploaded or not because I can’t pinpoint why. So everyone MAKE SURE to test it on paper then scrap fabric FIRST before you cut into the fabric you are using!
Anonymous asked: You play D&D? I seriously doubt that. I bet you don't even know what dice are.
Wait wait wait so you’re telling me
That these things aren’t elaborately shaped slightly mathematical candies?
I’m still gunna check
AS WE ALL KNOW, WE WOMEN CANNOT UNDERSTAND COMPLICATED THINGS LIKE DICE
ONLY MANLY MEN KNOW WHAT DICE ARE
MAY I GRIPE???
THIS is bullshit. You saw one of the reboot movies and enjoyed it? You’re a Trekkie. Saw two? You’re a Trekkie. Only seen originals? Trekkie. Love voyager but hate all the other stuff? You’re a Trekkie. Can’t stand Sisko but love everyone else?
YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WELCOME IN OUR FANDOM.
you are not a true Trekkie if you put real Trekkies down for not liking EVERY BLOODY THING ABOUT THE FRANCHISE
This is a great movie.
What I want to say EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Baristas are paid minimum wage to follow their company’s policies. That includes using whatever terms their company decides on for branding purposes. If you want a frappuccino instead of a frappe, a large instead of a venti, or whatever other thing you wanna call your drink, that’s fine. Your barista? They are paid shitty wages and work shitty hours and have to deal with hundreds of people telling them medium instead of grande, or large instead of venti (which refers to the fact that it is, actually, 20 oz of liquid, meaning you’re being a jackass for no reason).
Your barista isn’t stupid. They know what a fucking ‘large’ is and they know their store’s branding and slang sounds dumb to a lot of people. So how about, instead of being an asshole to a minimum wage worker, you consider why you keep buying $6 coffees instead of making that shit at home.
I’ll say that one more time.
Your barista is not stupid.
They know what a large is, what a medium is, and what a small is.
They also know they can be fired for not toeing the company line. And they can be fired for not standing there and taking the abuse you’re spewing at them.
They are being paid to not fight back. They are being paid to stand there all day and translate medium to grande and venti and large and regular and all while you bitch about the specific words you “have” to use. They are being paid to be welcoming and friendly and nice to you while you call them stupid.
Bitch, I know baristas with Ph.Ds, okay? Back the fuck off.
Reblogging for commentary.
I was just like to point out that after this scene, the Elizabeth Banks character ripped him for insulting the barista — and then pointed out that it’s called “venti” because it is twenty ounces.
Fun side fact: Grande used to be the largest size, Tall was the medium size, and Short was the small. You can still get Short cups, but mostly its just used as the “kids” size these days. Also grande is also large in Italian.
