THIS IS NOT THOM BROWNE’S, THIS IS NOT “LORDE-INSPIRED”
East African women (and probably other women from that region of the world) have BEEN dying their fingertips
Reblogging for knowledge drop
Yup, my momma been doin this.
I know Sooooo many black and brown girls that use to get mocked for this (Some African, indo-pak) and now its acceptable because its “fashion”
There’s something that really, really sickens me about the way fashion treats the traditions stolen from black/brown regions.For example:
But let’s not forget the first time dip dyed fingers were seen on the runway. Sorry Thom, but Mara Hoffman beat you to it. For her Fall 2011 show, the “Middle Eastern desert woman” look was complete with ink-stained fingers. Makeup artist Lottie for Make Up For Ever used body paint to achieve the look.
Literally, it’s been a fashion trend rooted in taking real present day women and turning them into exotic, taboo fictionalized caricatures. It’s not even “oh we stole this look and pretending it’s brand new” it’s "This is fashion because we’re acknowledging that we don’t consider these women as *real* and we want to *dirty* ourselves by playing dress up as them" I continue to get “look how weird and daring my pristine white model hands look with this horrifying risky taboo ink on my finger tips” from these fashion websites as they describe this “look.”
I’m sorry, women in Africa and South Asia are constantly used as this sick juxtaposition to pristine white dainty womanhood. Want to be daring and fashionable? Associate yourselves with one of these grimy cultures (that no one even understand on the most shallow of levels) and it’s suddenly so horrifying it’s avant garde.
This really, and truly creeps me out deep down to see the real women from various, rich cultures placed in such a box. Only to be opened when a white super model wants to be interpreted as “daring”.

Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
so! you might already know that I recently got out of uni. I’m no longer a student! now I’m living in the Real World which is a pretty scary place to be if you want to make a living with your own creative work. at least it used to be, because Patreon is a thing now which makes it a lot easier!
I’ve set up my own Patreon page here if anyone would like to support me in my goal of making games. pledges are set up for every game I release with the aim of making one every month. I’ll also continue to post about progress and development over on my game dev blog!
making games is truly what I want to do and in order for it to be a realistic life goal I need some level of financial support. I want to focus 100% on game dev and don’t want to charge for experimental game releases so Patreon is the perfect way to offer people with the option of supporting me while still providing free content.
thank you for taking the time to read this! for more information please visit my Patreon page. signal boosting this post would be greatly appreciated!
Cherno Alpha is a Mark-1 Russian Jaeger. Piloted by husband and wife duo Sasha and Aleksis Kaidonovsky, Cherno Alpha is the last of the Mark-1 Jaeger series and the oldest Jaeger still active in combat.
Cutting-edge technology is usually superior to the older stuff. But sometimes heroes can’t use the latest equipment: it may have been destroyed, stolen, confiscated, or rendered inoperable (or obsolete). So what do they do? They take the older stuff out of storage and make do with it. And more often than not, the ancient devices still work just fine.
Cherno Alpha, however, was never decommissioned. It continued fighting from its construction until the events of Pacific Rim. The issue with Cherno Alpha is its noted lack of an escape route. This foreshadowing works as a sort of Chekhov’s Gun. The design is mentioned to prepare you for the Kaidonovskys: they will win, or die trying.
Except for an early script, which described the Kaidonvoskys not only surviving, but living because they FIRED THEIR ESCAPE POD THROUGH THE KAIJU’S HEAD, KILLING THE KAIJU AND SURVIVING
We could have had THAT as an option?!?
Oh my gosh, I feel stolen from now D:
#WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALL
COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS
Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples?
(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)
The Yoruba of western Africa.
