i will always reblog this
Oh, Elsa. What are we going to do with you.
Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830’s-40’s, but I’ve been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her… weird underarm-cape. Thing. You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it’s not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle. THAT’S MY EXCUSE.
I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well. Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.
Tarzan is an incredibly underrated film, and this is an incredibly underrated Disney couple.
It’s kind of unfair, really, because I feel like if this movie came out today, my dash would be full of glorious goddamn Glen-Keane animated almost-naked jungle muscles basically all day every day, but NO, everybody has somehow forgotten about it.
Did I mention Tarzan and Jane are the most adorable couple too
I mean COME ON
The absence of women in history is man made.
Apparently, there’s some historical fuzziness around the ‘women getting immediately banned from baseball’ bit? - but regardless, it upsets me that I’ve never heard of this woman before.
For real though, these two. It may seem a little cliche, but Mickey and Minnie Mouse will always and forever be my favorite Disney couple. They’re always there for each other, but they also do silly things like play pranks on each other too. Of course, sometimes Minnie is the damsel in distress, but she’s saved Mickey on a few occasions too. Each of their wacky adventures wouldn’t be the same without the appearance of the other, and I love that. I also think that Walt and Lilian’s relationship and personalities are reflected in them as well. These two are the classically inseparable couple and they will live forever as a timeless symbol of love and friendship. <3
Being fit isn’t about body size or shape. It’s about optimizing your body’s potential to do awesome shit like this.
this is so inspirational.
For real. I am so tired of people equating fit to being thin. Fuck that.
this is the first time i’ve seen this posted with body positive messages. great!
As someone who has done gymnastics in various forms, his height is incredible. Check out where his head is - nearly chest level! And he drops his legs down so easily, arms tucked back casually.
Rock on, dude. You’re amazing.
I hate that “you can’t be fat and fit” bullshit because it cuts an entire body type out of the equation.
People typically fall into three categories: ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph. Ectomorphs are skinny, wiry people with fast metabolisms who build lean muscle (think track runners or gymnasts). Mesomorphs are of the archetypal athletic body type that builds muscle while burning fat; they become bodybuilders and hunky actors.
Endomorphs, the third category, are always dismissed as unhealthy for the bullshit reasons I will detail: While they gain body fat easily, they gain muscle just as easily. But since it develops under a layer of fat you can’t see it. This doesn’t mean it’s not there. An endomorph could be a bear-wrestling Appalachian trail-hiking badass and people would still look at them and think “wow look at that fatass I bet they never move”. Bitch have you ever seen a linebacker they’re fat and they run just as much as the other guys on the team. Which is another point: endomorphs can do cardio and still be fat. Their bodies don’t let go of fat without a fight and the lengths they’d have to go to in order to lose most or all of their body fat (too much exercise, too little food) could in fact be detrimental to their health. Hell, I know a cross-country hiker with a beer belly who runs six miles a day without breaking a sweat.
tl;dr the notion that body fat automatically equates to poor muscle and cardio health is a notion that only works under the assumption that everyone is naturally ectomorphic or mesomorphic. This is not true thus this idea is wrong and stupid.
THERE IS SOME REALLY GOOD INFO IN THIS POST
Something I really love about living in Texas is how this time of year you’ll be driving along, and you could be having the worst fucking day ever, but then you see them
and they’re clustered in huge patches because it’s illegal to pick them (it’s a hanging offense,…
THIS MOMENT THOUGH
Ok, context: This is bonus footage from the final performance of what was known as the “First Stage” of the Sailor Moon musicals. After playing the role from the very first performance five years prior, Anza was graduating from Sailor Moon. Along with her, many other long-running performers were graduating from their roles, including Morino Ayako who had played Sailor Mercury from the beginning just as Anza had for Sailor Moon.
On this final performance, many extra fans turned up and weren’t able to get tickets which was very troubling to Anza and I’m sure many others involved in the show who wanted everyone to be able to share the experience. Eventually, they set up a live feed of the performance to be shown on a TV in the lobby of the theater so that everyone who couldn’t get tickets could still celebrate the end of the era.
And that’s just beautiful.
