cosplayinamerica: I was legitimately thrilled with the overall reception of my costume. I never could’ve imagined that it would make so many people so happy! But I exchanged so many hugs and daps and high fives, it was unreal. I had a lot of really great conversations with people that were just super excited to see some Native representation at the convention. So that part was really special for me, because that was a big part of my own personal inspiration to begin with.I originally brainstormed this costume in late 2015, but I really started rolling on production this last year, once I committed to this years SDCC… My main goal was to make a Native American variant of a fan-favorite character. I was immediately drawn to Captain America because of everything he symbolizes as basically the poster boy of a nation. To me it was the perfect parallel. And once I visualized the red and white bone breastplate on my abdomen, I knew this was something I had to see through.A lot of old school leather work with the awl! The majority of the armor was made from a base of 6mm EVA foam with 3 oz deer hide glued over it. The pieces were then stitched together with sinew or leather lace. Using this technique allowed me to form curves and build the necessary bulk of the armor pieces while also getting the suede textures I was looking for. And a whole lot of beading!—- https://www.instagram.com/hot.glue.burns/PHOTO: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0FQd_1AKhk/: COMIC ACOMIC COMICE COMIC COMICE ECOMIC ECOMICE BCOMIC ECOMICE NCOMICE COMICERCOM COMICE ACOMICCOMIC COMICE COMICE ECOMICCOMICECOMICECO COMIC COMICE ACOMICE ECOMICE COMIC COMICE ICOMIC COMICE CON OMICE COMICCOMICCOMICECON GE COMICE CON IC COM COM OMICE wCOMICEC COMICE CON COMICE COMICECOMICE COMICE COMICE ECOMICECOMICE COMIC COM COMIC COMICCOMIC ECOMICECOMICE COMICCOMICCOMIC COM ECOMIC COMIC COMICE COMICE COMICE COMICECOMICE COMIC ECOM COMICE COMIC COMIC COMICE COMIC COMICE COMICEECOMICOOL cosplayinamerica: I was legitimately thrilled with the overall reception of my costume.

teslacarter: cuteosphere: it always disappointed me that Monster Girls are an anime porn thing rather than something used to explore the way society and the media dehumanises women, but oh well shout out to all my fellow monsters This is so on point. In my writing, my main female characters are always some sort of monster. Giant werewolf girl that can rip your throat out? Yep. I started really realizing that maybe there’s something wrong with the world, and not me, when the only way I could make a character I truly understood how to write was if they were able to shapeshift into a huge monstrous thing with snarling maws and fur everywhere. I just gave up and went “FINE I guess I’m a monster then!” and embraced the fur and fangs and everything else that made people afraid of me. (Like not shaving my armpits or my legs.) Heck, I won’t even be as invested in a game as I might if I can’t either play as a non-human character or make myself a non-human character. I bought Guild Wars 2 simply because of the Charr. I knew nothing about MMORPGs at the time, I just saw sabercat people and bought it. I love this comic. I love the message.

SHOVE A TRASH CAN UP YOUR ASS Pediatric anthropology student, here. 1.) Breasts as sexual fetishes is a (largely Western) cultural construction. Yes, it’s a fetish – anything you are sexually attracted to that is not the genitals of an adult is a fetish, or paraphilia. My professors have met non-Westerners who think our men are “like babies” because they are attracted to breasts. Breasts ≠ genitals. Scientifically, they are considered secondary sexual characteristics – same category as facial hair. They can be sexual in a sexual context, just as necks and feet can be. But their primary purpose is reproductive. 2.) Breastmilk is not a “bodily fluid.” It is FOOD. It is not categorized by the CDC as a biohazard, and so no you don’t need to freak out if your coworker wants to store her milk right next to your Lunchables. MOREOVER, Breastmilk is not just protein and vitamins. It is a living, dynamic substance that BUILDS HUMANS. It has hundreds of ingredients (<— actually that list needs to be updated because they’ve discovered more already). There is a lab at the University of Washington St. Louis, where they have written all of the ingredients of human milk on the wall – They have run out of room on that wall. Among those ingredients: The exact ratio of protein-sugars-fats that human infants need (cow’s milk doesn’t even come close) Antibodies to pathogens in the baby’s environment (synthesized by the mother within hours of coming into contact with a given pathogen) and other immune factors Stem cells. FUCKING STEM CELLS. (They used glow-in-the-dark mice to find out what they do!) Hormones (support growth and regulate behavior) peptides Self-digesting fats (what the whaaat) Growth factors water, vitamins, minerals, carbs, etc. prolly other awesome shit we don’t even know about yet because we’ve barely scratched the surface of this research! These ingredients change hour-to-hour according to the baby’s needs. It will even add more water on hot/dry days. Fuck, breastmilk kills cancer in a petri dish.Breastmilk. is. not. a. bodily. fluid. It. is. liquid. gold.3.) When you tell a woman to go to the bathroom to breastfeed, you are perpetuating the notion that it is dirty and shameful and needs to be hidden away. This idea is the biggest barrier to achieving breastfeeding goals in the United States. Because women feel ashamed, they often stay isolated at home when they should be spending time out and about with friends and family and having, like, a life. This isolation can contribute to postpartum depression.From the Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding:Women may find themselves excluded from social interactions when they are breastfeeding because others are reluctant to be in the same room while they breastfeed. For many women, the feeling of embarrassment restricts their activities and is cited as a reason for choosing to feed supplementary formula or to give up breastfeeding altogether. And since we have this culture of shame and privacy surrounding breastfeeding, young girls and women don’t see it enough to learn what is normal/not and how to do it, so they often give up when they run into problems because they don’t realize there’s an easy fix.Moreover, an infant needs to be integrated into society in order to develop properly. He/she needs to see faces and hear voices. Isolating them – or throwing a blanket over their head – takes this important component of their development away. It also often annoys them because they are understimulated. 4.) YOU NEED TO SEE IT. That’s right, YOU. Even if you are a dude. Maybe you aren’t a parent, but you probably have loved ones who are. Or you might become one yourself someday. And if you are American chances are you have no idea how breastfeeding actually works, because you never fucking see it. It’s messy and complicated, and hard. It used to be a part of everyday life, because there weren’t any alternatives – So we learned how to do it by being around it all the time, NBD. The whole sexualization/modesty thing surrounding breasts wasn’t a thing until like the mid-20th century. Check out this 1871 drawing of a woman breastfeeding IN FUCKING CHURCH: She’s covered head to toe, in accordance with modesty standards of the time – except for her breast, about which the people around her give zero fucks.More from the Surgeon General:In American culture, breasts have often been regarded primarily as sexual objects, while their nurturing function has been downplayed. Although focusing on the sexuality of female breasts is common in the mass media, visual images of breastfeeding are rare, and a mother may never have seen a woman breastfeeding. Mothers need to see it. Future mothers need to see it. Future fathers need to see it. Family members need to see it. Everybody needs to see it. SO THEY FUCKING GET USED TO IT.So, no, I’m not gonna go to the bathroom to feed my kid. If you don’t want to see it, then DON’T. FUCKING. LOOK.
