I need to sell my Benny costume soon! He will be ready to go by the end of August, and I am now accepting offers! I would normally keep him, but I am making other large costumes, and I need space in my small apartment!
I am 5 foot 2 inches, but the costume can easily fit someone larger. The costume is built to last and is even coated in fiberglass resin and mating. The costume will be fully repaired before shipment! If he doesn’t have a buyer before August, he will be auctioned off!
Interested or have any questions? Pop me an ask, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Spread the word if you can! Thanks!
Sis is selling Benny so snatch him up before someone else does!
With comments too great not to include. You should check the heck out of that webcomic series either way 8D
The comments on this are every bit as fabulous as the actual comic :D
In the post-World War II era, the Klan experienced a huge resurgence. Its membership was skyrocketing, and its political influence was increasing, so Kennedy went undercover to infiltrate the group. By regularly attending meetings, he became privy to the organization’s secrets. But when he took the information to local authorities, they had little interest in using it. The Klan had become so powerful and intimidating that police were hesitant to build a case against them.
Struggling to make use of his findings, Kennedy approached the writers of the Superman radio serial. It was perfect timing. With the war over and the Nazis no longer a threat, the producers were looking for a new villain for Superman to fight. The KKK was a great fit for the role.
In a 16-episode series titled “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” the writers pitted the Man of Steel against the men in white hoods. As the storyline progressed, the shows exposed many of the KKK’s most guarded secrets. By revealing everything from code words to rituals, the program completely stripped the Klan of its mystique. Within two weeks of the broadcast, KKK recruitment was down to zero. And by 1948, people were showing up to Klan rallies just to mock them.
Jessica Williams and Travon (one of the staff writers) do it again!
This is why white women can’t be in the natural hair movement
Had to bold that comment
Today, I’d like to talk to all the beginners out there. I know how disheartening it is to be a beginner…
This is a nice little blog post for beginner seamstresses looking to find the motivation to get started in the sewing world. Colette suggests her own patterns to build up skill levels, and while I love that idea, I have said on here a bunch of times (and have had it co-signed by a lot of followers) that her patterns are built for a very specific body type that I dare say not a lot of us have (full in the bust, boxy from waist to hip). You will have to test her patterns out yourself to see if they work for you, and I would say that simple tops are more likely to fit various body types than other garments because of minimal shaping. But give them a try, and if you don’t think they will work for you, you can easily find patterns by other designers that incorporate the skills she is highlighting in this post (projects with pockets/zippers/shirring, etc).
Reblogging for friends who want to learn to sew. I’ve never used a Colette pattern because I’m too fat, so yeh it’s a bit harder trying to find or even adapt clothing patterns to fit if you’re larger than most pattern companies offer. Pattern grading: yet another advanced skill a fatty has to learn if they want to clothe themselves.
Guilermo Del Toro - How Pacific Rim saved his life
“I wanted to show that men and women can be friends without having a relationship,” says del Toro of the relationship between the two main characters Mako (played by Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi) and Raleigh (“Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam). “Theirs is a story about partnership, equality and a strong bond between partners. It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.”
Nice article, worth a read. (via imraardeen)
One time during my freshmen year of college I forgot to do a history paper that was worth 20% of my grade and the teacher didn’t accept late work, so I waited until the professor handed back the papers and angrily asked where mine was. The teacher felt so bad for losing it he let me re-do the entire paper and gave me an A-
You fucking champ

"So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all, but I don’t get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair - ew - and cover it up with a backwards cap and, like, we’re expected to swoon? I don’t think so."
cher taught me that you don’t have to pretend boys are cute when they aren’t and i’ll always be indebted to her for that
