So, for anyone who wants to get on board with offering others the benefit of your healthy bodies, I’d like to encourage folks to register with (or whatever the similar organization in your country happens to be) to possibly be bone marrow donors. You can save someone’s life, more or…

Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.

Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.

What you’ll need:

  • circular knitting needles
  • yarn
  • small scales

You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.

Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!

(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)

Cosplay Armor: Vinyl or Spandex Over Foam



We tend to see these tutorials not in English so here is a fabulous Spandex over Foam Tutorial from Ruffle Butt Cosplay.

While the tutorial is made with Spandex, you can definitely use it with 2-way or 4-way stretch vinyl.

Here are pictures of cosplay armor using this method.

30 Days of Marvel | Favorite Quote
↳ Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — "No, you move.”

Happy Fourth of July, folks.

Mr. President, members of the NSA, various members of state legislatures in Texas and Ohio and North Carolina: you move.


Or, in the parlance of the popular lyric, “MOVE, BITCH, GET OUT ‘DA WAY.”

The fact that Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellen are best friends in real life makes me so happy


Who do you suppose takes all these pictures? Someone with the guys, or a random person who gets to tell an amazing anecdote later?

Stoppa Red is an alternative to pepper spray. It literally stains the attackers face and makes it easier for police to find them. It's also distracts for a few seconds which can be vital and can be bought in bottles small as lipstick. I've never used it personally but it's legal as far as I know.

How much would it suck to try to say hello to a girl or try to ask for directions and be sprayed in the face with something that labels you a sexual predator?

if the way you “say hello and ask for directions” sets off anyone’s “omg this person is going to attack me” sense…  I’m pretty sure you need to re-evaluate how you interact.   you probably do it just fine though, so going to this extreme is HIGHLY unlikely that that interaction will result in getting sprayed… hyperbole much?

Radical feminists tell women that they should fear interaction with all males, regardless of whether the guy seems like a threat.  It’s not usually based on whether someone seems like a threat though… Usually how “creepy” someone is considered to be is based on whether or not the receiving person perceives them as attractive.

Educating a Friend

  1. Me: So, let's say that you're at school and you see a guy you know. I mean, you guys talk every once in a while and he's pretty cool, but you're not like friends or anything. You just talk to him every once in a while.
  2. Guy Friend: What's his name?
  3. Me: I don't know. Frank?
  4. Guy Friend: No.
  5. Me: Okay, fine. His name is Will. Okay?
  6. Guy Friend: I don't think it really suits him, but okay.
  7. Me: ...So anyway, you're at school during lunchtime and you see Will. So, you notice Will's not eating anything. That's when you realize that Will has no lunch, no money for lunch, and no way of getting either. He's just sitting there like he normally would. He's not acting any differently and he's not asking anyone for anything. Not money, not a fry, not even a salt packet, but you know he's gotta be hungry. So, what do you do?
  8. Guy Friend: Do I have any money?
  9. Me: Yeah. You have enough for you and another meal.
  10. Guy Friend: Duh, I buy him lunch.
  11. Me: Okay, cool. So, like you said, you buy him lunch. You buy your lunch and you buy his lunch and you go over and hand it to him. And, he says, "Wow. You know, that's really nice of you, but I wasn't gonna ask anyone for lunch. I was probably just gonna wait until I got home to eat." And, then you say--
  12. Guy Friend: Nah, it's cool.
  13. Me: Exactly. You say, "Nah, it's cool. I'm just being nice. It's a gift." And, Will says, "You know, that's awesome. You're really nice, bro." And, after that, you guys start hanging out. You guys are like really good buds. You are always hanging out and laughing and just having a good time. So, you guys are friends for a few months, and it's tons of fun. Then, one day, you go up to Will and you say, "Hey, Will, you know, I've been thinking, and I kinda want that five bucks."
  14. Guy Friend: What five bucks?
  15. Me: Hold on. I'm getting there. So, Will says, "What five bucks?" To which, you reply, "Well, we've been hanging out for a long time and it's been really fun, but like, I've done a lot of really nice things for you. Like, I'm always nice to you and I always listen and do things you wanna do, so I was thinking that because I've been so nice, you should pay me back that five bucks I spent to get your lunch right before we started really hanging out."
  16. Guy Friend: What? Why would I--
  17. Me: I'm not done yet. So, then Will looks kinda hurt and he says, "But I thought you were just being nice. I thought that was just a gift." So, you say, "Whether or not it was a gift, don't you think you kinda owe me that five bucks since I've been so nice to you?" And, Will says, "No. I don't think I owe you that!" And you get mad, so you say, "Well, I think that you do, so I think you're being really shitty and stuck up about this and I feel like I've been completely wronged."
  18. Guy Friend: Oh, my God. That's so fucked up of me. I would never do that to Will. Will was nice. We were buds. That's way screwed.
  19. Me: I know, right? Hey, just wondering, have you ever heard of this fictional place called "The Friendzone?"
  20. Guy Friend: Well, yeah, but...
  21. Guy Friend: ...
  22. Guy Friend: ...
  23. Guy Friend: oh

Possibly the most inappropriate children’s book ever devised. From 1974. As well as the innocuous stuff about throwing parties and baking biscuits (which I’ve left out) it shows you how to magic warts, how to make a cursing potato figure to stick pins in, how to plant flowers in honour of the moon goddess, and more… including a ritual to summon spirits, complete with cut-out cardboard pentagrams.

You’d never get away with this nowadays. Frankly I’m not sure how they got away with it back then.

Give Yourself Permission


Give yourself permission to not be liked by total strangers, and yet to go on living a happy and productive life.

Give yourself permission to do what is in your best interest.

Free yourself of the good opinion of others. The only opinion that counts is that of your own conscience.

Give yourself…

"Raised with male privilege"


There’s this phenomenon in which cis women will start talking about how trans women are “raised with male privilege” and how this supposedly means various things. I was most recently reminded of this by mysocalledqueerlife, who wrote a post about how fraught a topic this can be and how dangerous…
