I'm 25, married, owner of two kitties and a cosplayer!
Made mostly for posting progress and completion photos of my Loki and Thor cosplays for myself and husband respectively.
I've both judged and competed in competitions and have previously represented the UK in the first Eurocosplay! I pick stupidly detailed costumes and spend far too much money on them. Someone should probably stop me.
Always happy to answer questions!
Halfway through explaining to requiodile how they’d done the arm prop for TWS I realised I was quoting info from the artbook that I hadn’t seen on Tumblr. So here you go!
"What the directors described was an arm almost beyond what Tony Stark could do now, the highest tech possible, so whoever had replaced Winter Soldier’s arm was beyond what even our main technological hero of the Marvel Universe could accomplish," Meinerding says. "That allowed us to go with the horizontal cut lines across the arm, something fairly traditional in the Marvel Universe, so it was kind of cool to be able to do it on-screen."
Shane Mahan, Physical Suit Effects Supervisor at Legacy Effects, describes the process of creating the Winter Soldier’s arm from a life-cast of actor Sebastian Stan: “First, we do an exact mold of the actor’s arm for the size and the dimension, and then we do a casting out of that. But we also took him to get a 3-D scan of his arm, so we had digital information as well as a hard, real-world casting to work from. We took the designs from Ryan Meinerding’s design team, and then one of our digital artists here — Won-il Song — created a digital sculpture.”
"I designed this to be a seamless forearm piece," Mahan continues. "And after the digital sculpture has been done, and the part has been grown and cleaned up, it matches up to a bicep piece. One of our artists, Chris Swift, is pictured testing it."
Legacy created two versions of the Winter Soldier’s arm. “We made one from foam rubber with tracking markers on it for extreme action,” Mahan says. “And then there were these arms made of urethane that were metalized and had less action mobility, but for certain shots looked reflective and really great.”
More scans etc. here.
Reblogging for later.
Cause I’m totally not planning to start this later in the year. X3
The Penguin Foundation has a global call out for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.
If you enjoy knitting as a pass time please please please do this. please.
You can download a PDF with more info here
signal boost this year again :D
Look at this little guy! I can’t knit so reblogging for anyone that can!
Currently on day 4 of my new job and I love it so hard! I’m head seamstress for the new ABC pilot Galavant. I’m really hoping it gets a series as it sounds amazing!
Also found out yesterday Alan Menken will be at the studio today! I didn’t think he’d be coming over tbh. This man pretty much made the soundtrack to my childhood!
One of the storyboarders is a similar age to me so we may have had a little flail over him coming today.
Watched Tangled for the first time since seeing it in the cinema. My husband pointed out that it feels more like a broadway production than a film due to the songs, amd I can totally see what he means.
It made me crazy excited for Galavant! Seriously, its got Alan Menkin composing for it and Dan Fogelman writing. It’s a new TV comedy fairytale musical with Vinnie Jones in it!
With Vinnie Jones!
Also the guy who plays Magnitude in Community. Pop pop!
More people need to be excited for this so it gets past its pilot episode!
Princess Academy was to be an animated short that would’ve featured all the female characters that debuted from the films that came after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs all the way up to Tangled, including Pixar films.
It was to be a musical on par with the segments seen in the Fantasia films, with all the females interacting with each other, singing, dancing and just enjoying each other’s company. The music was to be composed by Alan Menken.
Can somebody please make a petition to reform this idea?!
Omfg Charlotte is in it
I would sell my soul to Satan for this
OH MY GOD
Oh, I should have pointed out that Eilonwy is in it as well. She’s the little girl Tiana is holding her hand out to, behind the door.
BO PEEP IS IN THIS. BO PEEP! *CRIES FOREVER*
WHY IS NOT A REAL PROGRAM THING?! WHY STOP IT?!
I love all of them together to scale! I really hope this wasn’t completely dropped and is still a future possibility!
PSA:My Mother never told me this! Reblog to save a baby Bird:)
JUST A LITTLE HISTORY FACT MY GRANDFATHER TOLD ME:
The reason this myth was a thing, was because back in the 30’s-50’s or so ( I can’t remember the time)
There was a parasite that was living in birds. It was hard to explain it to children, so they basically made up this myth so children wouldn’t touch the birds incase it carried the parasite.
THE MORE YOU KNOW YEA?
