Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

i would really like to have my own petsite someday, but 1) i will never have the patience or attention span necessary to learn how to program 2) i work at a snail pace so teaming up with a programmer is entirely out of the question and also i’m just not good with people.
it is a pipe dream. still though, i like to draw stuff i’d put on my own petsite. so here is a kirin growth sequence.

Aaaa!!! I love kirins, this is such a beautiful design.

I’m selling my Spanish Renaissance gown and accoutrements. It includes:

Gown: made of blue poly brocade. It is trimmed with blue and gold braid and handsewn gold and pearl beadwork. It has full sleeves that button on top with gold and pearly buttons. Bodice and sleeves are fully lined. Laces up the back with hand sewn eyelets.

Underskirt: made of dark blue cotton bottomweight. Visible section is faced with gold poly fabric with diamond pintucks accented with handsewn pearl details. Bottom is decorated with wide blue and gold trim. Ties at back with grosgrain ribbon waistband.

Corset: fully boned with cable ties. Bust section is unboned for comfort. Raw edges are all hand bound with grosgrain ribbon. Laces up in back with handsewn eyelets.

Chemise: falls to mid thigh length. Body is made of white cotton. Sleeves are white organza gathered into puffs with white and gold ties. Ties are tied to fit my arms but can be retied. Cuffs and neckline are trimmed with white cotton lace.

Partlet: made of white organza threaded with white and gold string. Neck gathers and ties with same type of cord. Trimmed with white cotton lace.

Hoopskirt: made of cream cotton. Hoops made from poly tubing which makes them flexible, squishable, and sturdy. Hoops will be compressed to ship so may need to be reshaped (stretch hoops around table or chair legs to make them properly circular). Waist gathers and ties with ribbon.

Frenchhood: made of matching brocade. Stiffened with heavy interfacing and wire. Trimmed with gold trim and hand sewn pearls. Back is white gathered cap.

Not included: pearl belt and pearl necklace

$175 including shipping to the us

Bust: 33-36. Waist: 23-28

Please send me a note if you are interested in buying it.

Gown and sundries are made sturdily. All raw edges are either serged or fray checked. Made more as a costume then clothes. Worn about 10 times.

I’ve decided to sell this as it’s a bit to gaudy for my current tastes and it takes up some room. This is a deal, you could easily spend $175 on the materials alone. Perfect for wearing to a renn faire, Halloween, costume ball/party, etc. I’d rather know someone was wearing and enjoying it then have it just suit in my closet.

Signal boosting.  I have enough Faire Garb, but this is gorgeous.

thebiggestnerd I swear to god I thought this was you when I saw this.

But hey, look at how pretty this is! And a great price.

HEY. HEY YOU. WITH THE FACE.

So, remember when you were a kid, and you drew comics?

I learned how to draw comics from my older brother, Matt. He would draw little Kirby comics on notebook paper at school, and bring them home. It was really the first introduction to comics I had, before I began to read Sailor Moon at age 6. I remember being fascinated, with Kirby’s little speech bubbles. From then on I’d buy graph paper notebooks and did this awful, terrible what-the-hell Furry Space Opera called “Cascading Dreams” (what). I drew in it every day on my little graph notebook. Drawing little comics every day, even if they were terrible, is what sparked me to draw as a grownup.

Do YOU know a kid who draws? Wouldn’t it be great if we had an anthology of just kids’ comics?

My mentor at SCAD, Bob Pendarvis, thought of exactly that. He’s REALLY close, you guys, but he’s only got 44 hours!

If you know a kid who draws, a $20 donation gives them 6 pages to have their pages published! How awesome is that? 

Pass this along! Great comic artists and cartoonists out there are growing up, and I’d love to meet them!

One of these days I would love to be the quintessential noble lady who makes people confused about their sexuality

I would say that coat is asking to get embroidered in goldwork, but honestly I haven’t been able to find any real-life examples of military jackets that have goldwork on top of a gold-colored fabric.  (Hey, if I had to do all that work, I’d go for a backing fabric that made my embroidery pop too.)  I’m not sure if there are examples out there that I haven’t found yet or if Oscar’s coat is basically Riyoko Ikeda making vaguely historical-looking shit up because it looks nice.

But seriously though can you imagine

So about that finale

Yeah, see, I connect with Elsa, but because of the anxiety/"be the good girl you always have to be" stuff. Not because she's emotionally distant, an I'm kinda anything BUT emotionally distant. (And I'm sick of Let It Go. It's not nearly as good as some people claim it is. At least, I don't think so, and I'm sick of it. xc")

That’s one way, too! I know a lot of people DO connect with Elsa for that very reason. Especially if you use her ice powers as an allegory for something else.

I don’t mind Let It Go as a song. I know I might sing it to myself if I’m in the car. But to quote my friend Marty: “The kids know all the words.  ALL THE WORDS.  We’re not talking seven-year olds with good memories…we’re talking four-year olds who can’t even grasp chewing with their mouth closed." IT NEVER ENDS ASDNFKSFD And they don’t trail off. IF they start it, THEY HAVE TO FINISH IT UGHHHHHHFDSKFKJSDNFK

Sort-of-semi-related… I wish Elsas didn’t give me a knee-jerk reaction cringe. It’s not Elsa, OR the cosplayers. I have seen some INCREDIBLE work, yaexrae's especially! There are stunning Elsas out there. And. As it happens, I like Frozen. Or I did.

It’s that I have to cut at least 4 Elsa costumes a day at work. They fit into a set of patterns.

  • Child says literally “I’M Elsa.” Bonus points if another child is standing nearby also making Elsa. I have pulled apart more than one fight for this very reason.
  • Grandmother wants everything perfect and screen accurate… But no work involved in getting it so. A listening grandmother down the counter overhears, brags that hers is better. Seriously.
  • Very smug costume-makers/seamstresses buying the Elsa-colors in bulk, to make tons of dresses to sell, and also specifically to make sure other people don’t get it. They usually brag about how much they sell them for.
  • Mom who is furious at Disney for not manufacturing more dresses, takes it out on us, and somehow wants to recreate it without sewing anything because she saw it on Pinterest once, but won’t look it up. Or she just throws it all to the wind and says “screw it, I’m making her a blue tutu, she can deal with it.”

We have patterns for sale. Little girls grab them, open them up and are confused the dress isn’t folded up in there. The same bragging grandmas titter at the patterns, claiming they’re terrible and their drafted pattern was so much better. Grown women literally stalking our trucks to buy Frozen fabric as soon as it comes off, still wrapped in plastic, with mothers SEETHING behind them. Usually they laugh and say, “I don’t know what I’m going to make, but my daughter/niece/granddaughter is obsessed~

Every day we get phonecalls: “Did you get Frozen fabric? Not that twill stuff, or fleece, I need cotton. Cotton Frozen fabric. My daughter/niece/granddaughter NEEDS it.” When we say no, not since last week, they snarl and huff, “WELL, you need to talk to your distributor, have it sent out, toot sweet! You’re losing SO MUCH MONEY not having Frozen merchandise.” WOWWEE IT’S NOT LIKE WE DON’T KNOW. They literally can’t print stuff faster than they can sell it.

Also I am convinced that every child in Louisville is going to be Elsa for Halloween. Convinced. Nothing but a sea of blue dresses screaming Let It Go.

Meanwhile, since the movie came out, I’ve only cut ONE Anna cape. It was for a disappointed little girl who had an older sister who “had to be Elsa” so she “had to be Anna.”

Sort of semi-semi-related rambling under the cut.
