Intergalactic Yo-Yo

among the many wonderful things about being a costumer, including the weird conversations with child actors and the satisfaction of making people look good, is the variety of bodies one sees.

Now, those who know me in real life know that I’ve had some body issues in the past, stemming from a chubby middle-school life, constantly getting cast as older female characters, and just generally being the curviest of my friends. By only my fifth month costuming for actual adults, I have seen the most beautiful variations in body type, proportion, and measurements. Women with big busts and little hips, men with necks nearly as slim as mine, people whose measurements actually match or exceed my own that, just looking at them, I would have been inclined to think “prettier than me,” “skinnier,” “more worthwhile.” That’s slowly going away. 

I was just in a show with a man whose shoe measured the length of my calf, knee to heel.

I think that’s awesome.

the brilliant thing about being a woman is that I’m punished for both trusting and distrusting men!

I should magically know which man is going to harm me by having a brief conversation with him. if I trust Bad Men, then, well. I should’ve known. 

if I don’t trust Nice Men though, I’m an utter bitch who deserves violence. don’t I know most men are good people?

I’m sayin doe….

There’s a lovely old English myth that if someone who truely loved and trusted the werewolf called it by name that it would turn back to human.
Others include throwing their human clothes at it and it’d turn back but that’s a bit less romantic

cargo pants are just a show of excessive male privilege by flaunting the amount of pocket space possible for one man

turns out you’re wrong, sherlock holmes. i don’t do any kind of farming or professionally take care of dogs or anything you said. i threw on all this shit to see which and how many wild assumptions you’d make about me from one random glance, like an asshole. and you did. you made so many assumptions about my life just by taking one look, you asshole. here’s an assumption for you: sherlock holmes is a huge jackass
