mademoiselle la lampent.
I actually really want to make this dress and it’s probably more realistic of a goal than madame la chandelure ;u;
I’m finishing my master’s final dissertation so I don’t have much time to draw /orz
Also I saved over the photoshop file for this one so now I have a flat 400px jpeg instead of the .psd file ;_;

Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.
How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!
13 out of 36…
28 out of 36
32 out of 36 :)
28 out of 36 😋
28 just above average
24 our of 36. Hmm. Interesting.
Your score on this test was 29 out of 36.
erasure of Asian people and characters is very deep rooted in American media and goes all the way back to conception—don’t let it persist!
Important even when you’re excited about this movie!
good points, but please for the love of god, realize that the original marvel comic was a fucking horrible racist disaster of the most unacceptable calibre that rode on the tail ends of the 90s ninja craze and the budding 00s anime craze.
I still have no idea why Disney chose to adapt this MASSACRE of a comic book series to film, but what I have heard is that they’ve cherry picked the best parts of it and created something great from what was absolute dregs before.
And honestly I think a movie portraying a much, much more racially diverse -even if it is fictional- world, where everyone lives unquestionably together and showing what that might just be like, is a pretty good goddamn thing that I think could stand to be shown and portrayed to kids of this generation. You aren’t seeing the white kids appropriating anybody’s culture, you’re seeing a bunch of kids who are friends and race is not a divisive factor between them. I sort of think, in media, portraying/normalizing these sorts of things is really important and I think that is what BH6 is doing here: normalizing these sorts of situations.
When I say “normalize”, I mean, in media, and especially media for impressionable children, things that could be anything from diverse/inclusive groups of people from different races, to things like different genders, or different body types, being shown as “normal.” You put them on screen and tell a kid “this is normal.” and this can be shown in a way to goad children into doing what advertisers/media producers want, but it can also be used as a force of good. It’s about time we start using this media influence to spread stuff like this, instead of “buy this toy, wear this type of clothes, girls behave this way and boys have to do this or they aren’t normal”.
baby steps, man. There was a shitstorm when Laika released a movie with an openly gay character. But when they did the same thing a year after for the Boxtrolls, only the stupid old people got pissy about it. See? It’s starting to become normalized.
In the future I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s now easier for more diverse casts to exist, not just because it’s now been done once, but because the people, like me, who work in production, can point to things like this and say “see? They did it in Paranorman, the world didn’t explode. It’ll be fine.” or “see? the movie didn’t have to change for a bunch of different races to fit in fine. It’s not a big deal.” It’s been normalized. Somebody has to set a precedent. Wouldn’t it be great if shows were as diverse as this, not because they had some sort of agenda to, but just because that’s… yknow, normal?
#p l e a s e take note #i do get why people would get mad at disney for their decisions #but the source material is absolutely terribly and incredibly racist #and i would rather have a revamp about a mixed-race kid in a mixed-race world #than a straight adaptation of a racist as hell comic series #made by white dudes that think they’re clever for regurgitating every single exaggerated japanese and animanga stereotype in the book (via revyl)
The replies to this is pure gold! Again, not sure why Disney chose to make a movie abut this trash comic but the fact that they are making something beautiful out of it says a lot. Mix races in cultures is movies in a positive way is rare. Mixed CHILDREN (Hiro being half White, half Japanese) is amazing.
So please, sit down and rethink your argument. Why support a racist comic and get mad when Disney tries to make it diverse?
I’ve done a quick search of the original comics and damn, there’s a lot of sexism in it.
