Our Ash and Misty cosplays from Momocon 2014!

Cosplayers: Ekaloid and Fuzzy of Creation Craft Cosplay

So here we are, 2014….it’s been 17 years since the franchise began…and the ongoing cosplay for remembering a certain set of characters, will always and forever be…Ash and Misty! The best two most enjoyable and cherished characters (regardless of their SHIP). They’re humorous, strong, and perfect together! This isn’t about my shipping emotions right now, it’s about the basic charms of their personalities.

I really love drawing my favorite characters and all, but I’ve got a bit of a problem. Posing, anatomy, etc. have always been really difficult for me to draw, so I’ve always been prone to using references. Sometimes I’ll even see an idea that I just really like and want to emulate myself (even if…

The way I see it is, poses have been circulated so much that somewhere someone is going to say you stole the idea. But in fairness, as long as you put in the effort of actually DRAWING it out, regardless the reference, it’s YOUR ART. You didn’t trace it, you DREW IT. <3 Hope this helps!

Welcome Home - Link Returns to Hyrule

  After the defeat of the monstrosity from the desert, the Great Demon King Ganondorf, Hyrule enjoyed an era of peace and quiet. There was no requirement for weapons, magic or divine intervention. A rich, pleasant stillness spread across the land, bringing joy and prosperity to the people. However, along with the elements for war, there was also no requirement for a hero. Link, after being sent back in time by the noble Princess Zelda, found himself at a loss. Battle and struggling had been all he had known for most of his youth. And now, he had regained his lost years, yet found himself without a purpose.

   Kokiri Forest was no place for the young Hylian. The Kokiri, having no memory of the hero’s journey or efforts, treated him as usual – he was the outsider, the favourite of the Great Deku Tree and Saria, and the boy without a fairy. Saria’s sudden departure to the Sacred Realm to protect the land had also been misunderstood as a disapperance, for which the blame was placed upon Link by the jealous Mido. The forest, sadly, was no place for the fairyless boy, and so he sought another location to call home.

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

REBLOG FOREVER.

Wow I did not see that one coming!
