All the cats are better-dressed than me.
"100% wearable, flexible, and comfortable, the Cat Battle Armor is a for-reals armor harness for your kitty. Completely hand-made from durable veg-tan leather, this is no mere costume piece. Your cat will become an unstoppable force for slaughter in this fully articulated suit, shielding him/her from foes while allowing unimpeded movement across the battlefield or living room floor. The imposing torso section features several riveted, articulated plates and a terrifying rack of dorsal spines. Your cat’s hindquarters are sheathed beneath exquisitely arrayed overlapping scales stitched to a soft leather backing, adorned with nickel silver dome rivets. Midnight black scales and plates are finished with a glossy protective coat and seamlessly join together like the petals of a deadly flower. Adjustable at the collar with elastic and two nickel silver buckles, and at the belly with grommeted corset-style lacing for a secure, comfortable fit."
I envy this cat’s wardrobe.
Look at this little dapper man

Just… I really love Stella De Libero wedding dresses. Like a lot. So much love for all Stella De Libero gowns.
And can we take a minute to appreciate the fact that one of the models has fuzzy curly hair and it’s portrayed as beautiful for once?
More on Khutulun!
When Mongolian men wrestle in the Naadam games held annually since Genghis Khan founded the nation in 1206, they wear a particular vest with long sleeves but no shoulder covering and a completely open front exposing the whole of the chest,…
I was always particularly fascinated by Turandot, though it has some cringe-worthy elements.
Headcanon accepted. <3
i have an idea in my head where thor is just like. painfully incapable of being cissexist.
like some transphobic reporter asks him abt his sexuality and he’s “i have been attracted to many of your midgardian genders” and “what” and “my current paramor is genderqueer” “are they male or female” “they are neither of those two genders, that is what i have just said!” “oh well what were they born as" "oh no, dear friend, u appear to be confusing genderqueer with genderfluid! the lady mystique assures me that these are two very different things, [extremely extended explanation]"
oh my gosh yes
"but what are they biologically?”
"…they are human."
oh my god
"But what is between their legs?!"
"That is not of your concern, but on a good day, myself!"
LITERALLY ACTUALLY THIS
I adore “artifact” books! This could live happily next to my Wildlife of Star Wars and World of Thedas.
GOTTA READ ABOUT ‘EM ALL: KANTO FIELD GUIDE
The talented illustrator, Kari Fry, has been working hard to create a stunning, new book featuring the original 151 Pokemon. The guide features 158 color pages packed with illustrations, descriptions and even a map of the Kanto region.
I made this! ♥ Took the better part of a year. ;_; Finally done~
Really, though, how dare they take Queen Elizabeth 1 and turn her into another lovesick woman waiting for her beloved Doctor?
Queen Elizabeth 1 who did not marry because she considered herself married to her country. Queen Elizabeth 1 who did not marry because she had seen what became of her poor half sister Mary who lost the support of the people and almost suffered a rebellion when she married a Spanish royal. Queen Elizabeth 1 who did not marry because she believed that to be a fair and just leader, she could not let her heart rule her head. Queen Elizabeth 1 who did not marry because was abused by a man she was supposed to be able to trust in her early teens. Elizabeth 1 whose mother was brutally slaughtered by her husband and so did not trust in love.
It’s insulting and poor sexist writing to disregard that important choice on her behalf. It’s upsetting, and predictable, and everything I expected from Steven Moffat, who cannot seem to write a significant female character who isn’t in love, obsessed with, or entirely reliant on the Doctor.
I otherwise enjoyed the special, but the portrayal of Elizabeth I was horrible.
That lady is my hero and you are not worthy.
