RAISE UR HAND IF PEOPLE EVER MISTAKEN U FOR BEING TOO YOUNG OR TOO OLD
my first day substitute teaching one of the teachers mistook me for a middle schooler and told me to, “get back to class”
i was 22 at the time…
I was driving around…
I get mistaken for being in my mid-20s pretty consistently. Hopefully it stays that way for a while.
I still get carded pretty much every time.

Are letterman jackets actually a thing? Like, in the context of “cool” high school students? Were they at some point? I’m pretty sure that I’ve never actually seen a teenager wearing one of these in real life. Maybe it’s an American thing, where football is something that people (a) play in high school and (b) care about. My high school didn’t have a football team. Also the student council jocks were pretty much all theatre majors, so maybe my experience is not the norm.
My boyfriend is naked in my bed but my cat is purring beside me on the couch and I am conflicted about where to go: a memoir
TurboRoo, a chihuahua born without its front legs, was given a 3D printed cart made by San Diego firm 3dyn so he could train to be a service dog for disabled children.
I think we could all use these pics today. Golly!
I hope that he becomes the mascot for a kids’ derby team/league.
what would you say if anime conventions suddenly put an “anime sources only” cosplay ban into effect? meaning no cosplayer is allowed in the con unless they are cosplaying from an anime.
stabdaddroog answered: I would say “how do you plan on enforcing this, and what will the penalty be for people who do so and haven’t purchased a badge?”
they would have a list at the door of every anime made in the history of the world and would have to check through it with every cosplayer that came in lol
penalty is death. no lol, they would just send them home
Man I don’t even know if I could see that working for a smaller con, let alone something like Anime North.
The image is funny though. “I’m cosplaying from an anime that just started up in Japan and hasn’t been translated it you’ve probably never heard of it.” “Yeah? Well let me just consult the list here, buddy. >:I”
In 2008, me and a group of us (including the awesome @scifrey, who was the Fred to my Illyria) dressed as characters from Angel, the Buffy spinoff, and entered the Anime North Masquerade. We heard “That’s not anime” and “that doesn’t belong here.” Joke’s on them when we won a Presentation Award. If there’s one thing that irks me is those who feel the need to police the genre of costume, as though intertextuality isn’t a thing, that cosplay is this “pure” thing where no genres ever touch each other, ever, even though it’s been back and forth across the world several times before the word even caught on.
I admit I find it a bit frustrating how, at Anime North, anime and related things are getting buried further and further by all the other general fandoms. But then again, who am I to dictate what falls into the category of “related things”? I’m at the con selling animal hats, fantasy pinups, corsets, and other burlesque-type accessories. I could argue that these fall into the aesthetic of so many anime franchises. But I’m sure that someone else could make just as valid a case for their Doctor Who/Avengers/whatever merch/panel/whatever. And policing cosplay is just dumb. My favourite thing at anime cons (and other cons, but it seems more prevalent in the anime scene) is seeing all these awkward teenagers wearing what you can just tell is their favourite outfit ever that they never get a chance to wear anywhere else. Don’t you fucking dare tell them that they can’t wear it here, either.
Really, broad cosplay bans are just impractical. You can’t have staff dictating which crazy outfits are acceptable and which aren’t. If the masquerade committee wants to narrow their judging criteria, that would be one thing (though still difficult to pull off).
Blood bounces quite strikingly on snow not only because of the obvious color/contrast discrepancy, but the large difference in temperatures.
Another post to add to the list of “I swear I’m not a serial killer, just a writer”
I’m not even a writer and this is awesome.
I’m not even a serial killer and I love this
I think I learned this fact from a Judy Blume novel.
This is possibly my favourite character moment in any comic ever.
Okay, you change your hairstyle quite often and radically, so I just wanna ask if you recieve any shit due it? Or have you ever gotten a hairstyle that you realize immiediently that doesn't fit you? I've been dreaming few weeks now about a bit radical hairstyle, but I'm not sure I'm mentally ready for any stupid opinions or comments about it, since I'm having rough time for just speaking on some days.
Yes and yes. I’ve made a million hair mistakes. Maybe this one’s a mistake! I really like it, though, and the buzzed side feels really nice to touch. I dated someone who told me he wouldn’t like me if I cut my hair short. I sometimes think I should’ve shaved my head in the middle of the night.
Honestly, do what’s comfortable. Go to an actual salon instead of doing it yourself, if you have the means. If not, man, it’s just hair. If it sucks, it grows back. Wear a hat. Shave it off and start fresh. We’ve all had bad haircuts. Take a risk! Do whatever makes you feel rad & sexy!
Just be prepared, if you go for crazy colours and subsequently back to natural, to spend the rest of your life hearing older relatives/acquaintances asking you when you’re going to bring the pink/blue/whatever colour back. They will never again be satisfied by your normal hair.
I’ve been kind of obsessed with these things. My roommate actually moved out before he could give me this warning, so I had this conversation in my head instead. Heh heh.
I woke my Scottish boyfriend up to show him this comic and he mumbled, “Baby, don’t eat nothing but Scotch eggs. You have to eat other things, too. Like beef olives. That’ll keep you alive for three weeks.”
I don’t think that Scottish Independence is a good idea.
