Hey! I am Jonathan. You can call me jonathan, jon, or heru. i am a huge fan of many series, both animated and "real-life". (excuse while i snicker) My top fandom currently is homestuck, however my posts are about just about anything. hope you don't mind. =P
I need opinions! This is my Robin (Richard Grayson, season 1 of Young Justice) mask and I’ve been messing with idea for it (basically the pros/cons of doing the white eyes versus the face paint look)
I personally do not like the white eyes. I’ve always thought it looked cheesy and I’ve never seen a Robin cosplayer pull it off well. Plus, with my bad vision, the paint just seems like a better way to go.
Everyone I showed my mask with the face paint underneath said they liked the white eyes better. (Yes, that is just paper for the eyes. I didn’t have anything laying around that I could use that would stay in). I really want to look my best for this cosplay, and I’m not sure which looks better on me. I’m not a crazy stickler for accuracy, and I usually prefer to tweak my cosplays for what fits me best rather than doing something that is accurate but looks awful. For example, I usually prefer to style my wigs more “realistic” than accurate so that the character looks like they would if they existed and were walking round. Does that make sense?
Anyways, honest opinions please?
My opinion: HOLY SHIT YOU LOOK AMAZING ^^
Thank you ^^ It’s my first time wearing the mask and the cosplay isn’t done yet, but I’m really looking forward to this cosplay :D
I used white tile for my mask and it work okay. The only problem is getting it to stay attached.
Apologies for the terrible image quality - I’m lacking scanner access at the minute so I had to take these photos on my phone
I was reading hyperbole and a half’s blog entry explaining their experience of depression and decided to make another sketchy comic based on my experiences with anxiety, which is another mental illness I think people tend to misunderstand quite frequently
Hopefully this will be of use to some people - whether they suffer from anxiety themselves or if they just want to know more about it
So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
