“It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s. So I want to salute the spirit of Patsey for her guidance. And for Solomon, thank you for telling her story and your own.”
this is so important. too many actors fail to thank the people they play on screen. They often think they are those people and that they have actually done something through acting a part. Lupita knows the importance of playing the role of Patsey, but she always pays tribute to this real historical person and all the Patseys who have suffered. Lupita reminds everyone that Patsey is very real. That Solomon Northrup’s story is very real. This history from this movie is real and we must not forget. Thank you, Lupita. You’re an angel.
So, I’ve been thinking about ways to earn money. And I figured, hey! I know how to draw different patterns! Like dresses, skirts, trousers, shirts, jackets, for both males and females.
So I thought, would anyone be interested in purchasing specifically fitted patterns?
It would work like this: I tell you which measurements I need and you measure them for me (or I measure you if you live close by), I draw the patterns, you pay me and I send the patterns to you. The payment would cover for the paper and time used on the patterns.
If anyone’s interested, I might set up a small web-store or something. Just reblog or like this or send me a private message!
aurooranova kindly reminded me to mention that I can make you cosplay related patterns tailored to your own measurements.
"A heads up to everyone who is or has has been feeling sick after Katsucon, it has been confirmed that one of the flu strains that has made people sick is the H1N1 virus. If you’re feeling sick or have flu symptoms, PLEASE get to a doctor to prevent further spread of the virus. As a word of advise, if you’re feeling sick or running a fever, you should not be exposing an entire convention to your illness. Stay in bed, drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. No con is worth exposing thousands of people to a virus."
A member of staff just passed away due to this virus after contracting it at con.
Wanted to give a heads up to my followers—I’m absolutely appalled that someone would bring H1N1 to a convention. If you’re sick, stay at home or stay in your room or something—cons are NOT amazingly essential parts of your life to the point where it’s necessary to not miss one at all costs.
Christine Larson has passed away, and it’s an incredible loss for the community. Her family has HUGE medical bills because of this, so if you can help donate, information is here!
Finally having a permanent place with storage space means I can see just how much stuff I’ve accumulated over the years. It’s a bit ridiculous, tbh.
Some things I’ll donate, others I don’t know what to do with (like old DBSK posters. I don’t even know if anyone would want them…?) Maybe I’ll do a giveaway here? Not sure if anyone would be interested lol.
But I’ve decided that I need to wear more of my clothes. Be proud of my body and flaunt it and just fucking go for it, not reach for the same shapeless sweater every day which hides and doesn’t make me feel fabulous.
Today’s outfit: black skinnies, knee high boots, suspenders, tucked in shirt, beautiful dark green and pink handknit scarf, and an awesome military jacket with ruched puff detail on the shoulder/sleeves.
Sure, I have a bit of a muffin top when I sit but whatever.
