Otachi Craft Foam Spine/Tail How-to Post

So at dragon*con I debuted my Otachi gijinka cosplay! The fitting and patterning and rhinestoning on this costume was all stuff I knew how to do. I have never worked with craft foam before. So. Here is a post about a craft foam newbie’s strugglebus. 

For once I decided to take a lot of pictures of my process of something, and I am here to share with you a… well, I wouldn’t be so presumptious as to call it a tutorial. Call it a documentation of my first time ever working with craft foam, all the struggles and tears, and all the things I learned along the way.

More Otachi pics can be found here

This was a super intense process, and this post is mega exhaustive, so this is under a cut!

I think to see you saying that is really, really beautiful and I can only say to you: I empathise with you and I know the feeling of terror but if you are authenticly yourself, then you can give to the world and you can not think about it so much anymore and when you clear that space, ‘cause you don’t have to think about it anymore because everybody knows who you are, that allows you to be kind and to look out rather than look into yourself and then it really will be a gift rather than a burden.

Pride Q&A: Andrew Scott about sexuality

Every single Marvel Studios movie has centered around a presumably straight, white, male protagonist, even if white women (mostly love interests) and men of color (support roles) have played roles in the film. The franchise is a box office juggernaut and has a ton of movies on this list, but we’ve gotten two to three movies about each of the men on the Avengers and there’s yet to be a film about Black Widow. Both of Marvel’s ensemble films—The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy—trimmed down the superhero teams for their film adaptations, and the women characters, save for one, were the first to be cut. Most moviegoers will never know that women of color and LGBTQ characters were cut from Guardians of the Galaxy, but audiences will get to relate to the talking raccoon and the talking tree.

Marissa Lee, Where’s the Diversity, Hollywood? Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blockbusters Overwhelmingly White, Male (via briecheesie)

Much as I enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy and thought that it was a genuinely hillarious sci fi comedy/action movie and liked the cast and plot, I am still REALLY infuriated that Marvel took the lesbian couple that was on this team in the comics out of the film version

Good lord, this is crippling. It is so quiet and beautiful, it’s making me immeasurably sad.

This is beautiful.

These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.
