Going to watch some Goosebumps because Halloween is a month away and it’s time to party
I finished it yay! I tried it on and realized I couldn’t zip myself into on my own, so the shoulders fit funny since it wasn’t closed all the way in the back. Also the petticoat is way too small. I kind of thought I could get away with it but I can’t, so tonight I’ll make a quilted petticoat.
I also made a day cap out of left over materials. It’s based off of a design from the 1850’s when the dress is from the late 30’s, but that can be our secret.
Made from five yards of printed linen, the bodice is fully lined with muslin, and it zips up the back for convenience. The garment was sewn and drafted by me.
Total time: 28 hours, four days from start to finish. Total Cost: $36
Most of the time was spend hand sewing, and gathering. Dress fabric was $35, trims on the cap and muslin were a gift, and the zipper was $1.
Okay Tumblr, I really need your help. The red head is my best friend (Jen) and me. Jen and I have been best friends since March, 2014. We met in a hospital because we were both suicidal. We don’t even live in the same state, I live 2 and a half hours away from her in New Jersey. Jen is the reason I am still alive today. While we were in the hospital she showed me that even though death is inevitable and we can’t possibly imagine whats going to happen in the future, all you can do is take a day at a time. I owe Jen so much, and now I want to pay her back.
Jen was kicked out of Susky High School in Pennsylvania because she lived out of the district, but still only lives 15 minutes away. It is her senior year, and she wants to graduate with her friends. Jen got over 200 signatures of people in school who want her to stay, and wrote a 1500 word appeal to her school. They still won’t let her back in after all of this. She was upset, but they still let her walk with her friends. Now they’ve taken that away from her too. Jen is the sweetest person I’ve ever known and this isn’t fair for her. I mean who really wants to deal with this shit senior year!?! This is were you guys come in. Please, reblog this and help Jen get her senior year back. She deserves it so much.
Progress has been made! I just made this petition: https://www.change.org/p/susky-high-school-let-jen-richards-back-into-susky-high-school-and-graduate-with-her-friends#share
Please go and sign it! Love you all and thank you for the 950 notes!
Doctor! My choice: Robin Hood. Show me.

Edited a photo by farbenfrei for fun - that looks like a royal portrait now! FEELS!!
And I’m willing to bet there is some hidden away portrait of Loki somewhere, that Frigga forced him to sit for, that looks just like that. With that same face.
Like “Really? This? I have magic to do, mischief to manage, brothers to mess with. Get that brush moving or lose the arm.”
Now we only need a golden frame for it. OMG if only somebody could draw Loki how he is sitting for it, totally annoyed!
i just heard a water bottle in my room crack… there’s a ghost out here just trying to get hydrated… i can respect that
Nobody should ever make you feel guilty for making healthy decisions and working to improve your life.
If they do, it’s because they’re insecure about their own life and are looking for validation.
Call them out on it or cut them out of your life. You don’t need that and you deserve better.
