"So the whole Thor thing happened last summer, while I was helping Jane with her research, and since I survived that I’m apparently qualified to assist some of the greatest scientists of the modern world? And I have L2 SHIELD clearance? Sure, why not. I mean, Phil Coulson thought I was competent, I guess. Getting a rec letter from him is like getting one from the Pope and Batman. And then Thor put in a good word for me when Dr. Banner was looking for an assistant, so here I am.

But they never said anything about me needing a bodyguard. I know Bruce has the Other Guy, and I’ve seen the videos on Youtube and 4chan and whatever, but come on. The guy wouldn’t hurt a fly. He actually helped saved an entire species of fruit fly. He’s pro-fly. But my mom insisted, and Thor said his brother needed to learn a few lessons about humanity, and Thor’s dad thought the whole snake dripping venom on his son’s face was a bit old-fashioned so. Director Fury signed some papers.

And that’s why I’m spending my summer driving across the United States with Dr. Bruce Banner and Loki, Son of Laufey. This does not count towards my major.”

This is glorious and I demand the rest of it. 83

So I’m having a small contest ‘cause I need coordination ideas for this JSK I made. Reblog with an image of your idea to enter. Use polyvore or your favourite image editing software to create your image. Please be concise. I can’t wear three pairs of shoes, or seven blouses at a time (I’m not magic, despite the rumours), so your entry should not have more than what is physically possible to wear at once in it. No entry limit :3

Light-up floral headdress will be made in your requested colours once I’ve picked a winner. Contest will run til April 16th.

Just a reminder that this is still a thing :D

Take two! This is kind of fun, so I went for a cooler weather / rainy day style since it’s freezing and wet today for some reason. :1

Top down list again:

Black and white striped umbrella

Floral hair clip (Editorial note: I also wanted one of those fairly typical black-and-white lace headpieces to go with the green/black flower clip, but I couldn’t find a good pic of one I liked. I think it’s a staple of most lolifashion from what I’ve seen, so insert your favorite, I suppose? All the pictures of ones I found online were either too big to accommodate having the clip on the head also, or for the narrower / shorter ones, just not a good enough balance of black to white.)

Rose earrings

Capelet

Viridian princess top

Floral lace gloves

Heart handbag

Plain black tights (not really Nordstrom specifically, just any opaque black tights, haha)

Dark cyan Crochet Lover OTKs (Layered over tights)

White and black shoes

So that’s that! Had fun making a second variation. I’d initially intended to make it more grey-based, but it seems hardly anyone makes grey lolita-style blouses? Or maybe I just couldn’t find any particularly good ones to go with the JSK? Either way, once I hit on that viridian blouse, it was all gravy. I think it might have turned out better than my original idea with grey, even! :D

Oh why the hell not. I’ve never made an outfit before, but this looks suuuper cute. So here’s my offering:

behold, i suppose!

Working from the top down:

Floral hat - From Etsy; I imagine it at a jaunty angle.

Flower clips - Also from Etsy; perhaps spaced around the hat for colour balance, maybe one above / two below?

Hummingbird cameo earrings - Did a lot of shopping on Etsy, apparently.

Blue and white lacy blouse - From DevilInspired. I think the bow works ok but I imagine it wouldn’t be too hard to switch it for a different colour if it doesn’t quite cut it.

Light blue bell-shaped petticoat - By Classical Puppets; found on CLOBBA.

Box clutch - found on Ebay

Floral cameo bracelet with attached ring - Found on lolitadressesshop; apparently by Evil Lamour?

Floral flocked sheer tights - By FootTraffic; found on Sock Dreams because they are awesome and you should love them.

Lolita double ribbon shoes - Found on Kibbon

Forgive the lame photoshopping-together-ness. I tried to keep all the peripherals a calmer, more understated light blue / white sort of theme to keep the main focus on the JSK. Hopefully without being super plain, hahaha… I will freely admit I am not super smart in the way of the lolita stylishness, but I really loved doing this. So whether I win the headpiece or not, I had a lot of fun!! (But I would totally also super love winning the headpiece, hahahahaa~)

If cats looked like frogs we’d realize what nasty, cruel little bastards they are. Style. That’s what people remember.

Terry Pratchett, Lords and Ladies (via observando)

Well, duh.

True facts. Likewise, a fluffy tail is the only thing that separates “Aww, a squirrel! How adorable!” from “Eww, a rat! How deplorable!” :P

(Of course Gai would be super peppy ready-to-go at four in the morning for a jog. Of course.)

And the Waltz Goes On - Anthony Hopkins 

Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time

Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.

That was beautiful

I cried a few tears and felt better about humanity’s endeavors.
