My Little Ponies, Nail Polish, and Monster High... 3 of my favorite things - though this blog is a little bit of all my favorite things.
Monster High For Sale
Put up some of my MIB extras for sale on eBay -
Mostly because I have been so out of the loop I don’t know about pricing or anything anymore, I thought this would be the most fair way to get them out of the house.
I’ll be adding a few more things and some other lots of stuff in the next few days as well.
Oh, Elsa. What are we going to do with you.
Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830’s-40’s, but I’ve been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her… weird underarm-cape. Thing. You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it’s not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle. THAT’S MY EXCUSE.
I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well. Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.
( See the rest of the series HERE , and check out the FAQ HERE )
I really liked Duchesses color palette,so I decided to draw her ) May be there will be more EAH arts soon)
Looooking for a Lalaloopsy..
I know this is kind of a long-shot but I’m trying to find this for a friend of mine in Germany - I’m looking for the Mini Lalaloopsy Scarlet Red Riding Hood. I’m not sure when she was released either. She can be out of her packaging, but I need all of the pieces to her please. Somewhere close to cost for her would be nice as well.
My only living friend is the Patriot Act
-lone surviving Ranger introducing her eagle companion
Apparently there are bronies out there that are angry that girls/women like My Little Pony. Because they think they are faking their interest in it/don’t love it as much as them.
They’re applying the “fake gamer/geek girl” stereotype onto the audience the show was intended for.
And if you don’t think that’s the most hilarious shit idk if we can be friends.
oh no please im not supposed to feel bad for him but
Okay first if all how dare you
No but like, this would have been an incredible backstory. Especially with the whole being the youngest sibling thing and the always forgotten about stuff, it would have been great to see this played out in the movie. Like, even at the beginning. Imagine a short scene at a ball before the accident happened where Hans’ family is there and Hans tugs on his mom’s dress because he’s too small to reach the sandwiches on the table and his brothers won’t help him and his mom just laughs with the other royals who then walk away and then she leans over and says this.
MEANWHILE ELSA AND ANNA ARE USING ELSA’S POWERS TO GET THE CHOCOLATE DOWN FROM THE DESSERT TABLE COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF THE CHILD TRAUMA/ABUSE HAPPENING ACROSS THE BALLROOM
This was one of the things I was annoyed about in the movie, actually. Of course, because Anna fell in love with another dude, Hans has to be evil. That’s the way that Disney (and other kids shows, let’s be fair) ties up ‘love triangles’. People can screencap frames where Hans blinks wrong all they want, but I thought it was really out of left field- and yet 100% predictable because Kristoff exists and it’s an easy way to tie off that thread.
You know what I would have loved? I would have loved a Hans who wanted to love Anna. Like, a Hans who had to marry her and be with her for power reasons, inferiority complex reasons, literally ALL THE SAME REASONS, but instead of being completely, predictably, villainous in it, I would have liked it if he wanted to love her, but he just didn’t. Just couldn’t feel that way. If he leaned in and kissed her and nothing happened.
He pulls away, Anna looks up at him in horror, and it’s still a lie and still a betrayal, but instead of having the black and white Hans and Kristoff, you’ve got a little more of a human element- motivated by greed and ambition and therefore still somewhat reprehensible, but ultimately sympathetic. More assassins from the weasel guy try to kill Elsa, Hans maybe helps them out of spite because he can’t marry Anna now, and at the end of the movie, he goes home to a family who doesn’t have space for him- and maybe Anna and Elsa ask him to visit and he goes to escape from that and finds friendship rather than the romantic love he was looking for but he realizes that all he wanted was someone to appreciate him and HAPPY ENDINGS FOR EVERYONE OKAY why not that Disney, huh.
I really would have preferred that actually. I also thought that Hans being a villain was way out of left-field.
My latest illustration work,
"Genius-Billionaire-Fairy Tale Playboy-Philanthropist Prince."
This piece was my take on Marvel/Disney mashup fan art concept featuring Tony Stark and some of Disney’s classic princesses. I did take out some other princesses. So pardon me.
Linearts and colors by yours truly. Enjoy! :)
