Anonymous said: Why are you so angry about JLaw's nudes being leaked? I thought you didn't like her.
- i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
- i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
- i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
- i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
- i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
- i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
- i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics
- i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled
listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t

My sewing skills are extremely basic, so very basic. My sewing knowledge is being able to work a sewing machine in a very basic way (I CAN SEW A THING TO ANOTHER THING. That’s about it lol.) You could do it by hand even, but the sewing machine just makes it quicker, and the stitch stronger. But as long as you can sew a thing to another thing, you can do it. Even if you can’t sew, some people don’t sew at all and glue everything together. It might not hold as long, but it’ll work.
I hope you don’t mind that I answer this publicly but basically my advice to anyone who wants to make any costume/cosplay, and they feel like they don’t have the knowledge/skills, is to research it and just jump in. My USO girl costume was the first ever project I used a sewing pattern for, and I still l don’t really understand patterns. And I jacked it up so bad, I missed two pattern pieces when I put the thing together, and it didn’t fit right at all. But I just pulled in where it fit loose and faked it better, and nobody knew the wiser. Fake it till you make it, I’ve been doing it my entire life with just about everything. Making a costume from scratch is hella intimidating, and I feel like not enough cosplayers admit that they have no clue what they’re doing sometimes, and that 90% of their knowledge has been gained through massive fuck-ups, and trial and error.
So Sam’s clusterfuck advice on making a costume from scratch when you are most likely completely lost halp:
-Buy more fabric than you think you’ll need. If you’re like me you’ll sew the wrong side to the wrong piece, to the piece that you cut out wrong, and then you run out of fabric, and you go to buy more, and the seller’s out of stock, and then you cry.
-Speaking of which get a seam ripper, stat.
-Number one thing though: Chances are someone else in the world has cosplayed as it before, so look at at how theirs looks, and even better, if they posted their process, read up on it. Learn from their mistakes, it’ll save you from avoidable headache later, and they might show you a way of doing it that you hadn’t even thought of. I seriously can’t stress enough how much this helps. If they did it, you can do it, you got this, go you, you’re awesome.
I don’t know if that answers the question at all, but that’s my best advice.
It seems like a staple in the female Captain America costumes is the corset/bodice kind of thing, that has the red and white stripes on it. The neat thing about that is that the boning of the corset will already have sections seperated for you, so you’d just have to alternate colors between the boning, you could probably sew or hot glue the fabric on. And as far as the rest of it, I have zero experience sewing anything spandex-y, that’s a beast I know nothing about. But I’ve also seen some gals use the “scale” effect, which would be more tedious to put together but perhaps easier for someone who isn’t so good at sewing. It’d basically be arranging scale pieces, and sewing/gluing them.
I hope that helps! ♥
So I’m lounging around watching Pushing Daisies, the Hubby sees Lee Pace on the tv screen and goes, “oooh so THAT’S why you’re watching this…”
I go, “WHAT IT’S A REALLY GOOD SHOW!”.
So he sits down to watch it with me, and I explain what’s going on, and I can tell he’s intrigued.
And he asked me to not return the disc to Netflix because he wants to watch it in it entirety, lol.
The husband has good taste. Everyone watch this show.
