Circle Skirt Tutorial by Kapalaka
Circle skirts are one of the handiest things you can learn to make for cosplay. As far as simple-to-make skirts go, there are two types: circle skirts and rectangle skirts. A rectangle skirts is where you cut out a large rectangle, and gather or pleat all of the excess material until it will fit your waist, giving you a nice full skirt (we explained it in a bit more detail on this over here).
Circle skirts, on the other hand, give you a lot of nice fullness, but with minimal bulk at the waist. For example, my Babs Bunny skirt:
It might not seem like it, but there are a ton of different things you can do with circle skirts. Long circle skirts (as outlined in the tutorial) are perfect for ball gowns. If you need less fullness, you can make a half circle skirt or a 3/4 circle skirt (just use a half circle or 3/4 of a circle, instead of the full circle). If you need more fullness, make several circle skirts (make sure you adjust the waist measurement accordingly, i.e. for 2 circle skirts, use half your waist measurement on both of them), and sew them all together. Here’s an example of that technique (with gathers and horse hair braid in the hem. Tutorial for how she made it here)
You can add pleats or scallops in the hem, layer a whole bunch on top of each other, or whatever else you want to do:
I’ve even known some people to make capes and cloaks and the like using a circle skirt as the basis of their pattern. So go forth! Go forth and use circles!
i love how in the third gif you can see the exact moment when its not Sam anymore it is obviously Jared.
You can see them break character for half a second it’s fucking adorable

Hi anybody in the (northern) Seattle area, friend drkarayua is looking for a place to stay where the people aren’t shits. Please contact him if you are/know such a person, or reblog if any of your followers might be able to help! It’s extremely important. The people he lives with are triggering and make him uncomfortable. Please help!
Depends GREATLY on the person I’m asking/the people who are around me. Some of my best friends, I can’t talk to about my feelings. (Asking for help with little things is fine though, for pretty much anyone.)
1) Ummm no. I usually go out pretty far to find places I think are pretty. My campus is nice, but based on appearance I’d say there aren’t any especially pretty places. 2) I think it would depend on the post, but in concept, I would be touched.

did Rose know how to fight before playing the Game?
i started thinking about this sequence a few days ago. i took Martial Arts classes for several years and i (and probably anyone else who practices martial arts) can tell you that one of the first things you learn is how important a proper stance is—typically you want to have your legs spread far apart and bounce slightly on your feet, so as to be prepared to spring into action at a moment’s notice. it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to say that Rose’s stance in the above panel is a stylized version of that, would it?
Rose knowing self-defense/martial arts wouldn’t be too much of a stretch—i mean, compare how she and John enter the Medium. John initially has a lot of trouble just fighting Imps, and Rose
so that’s where i get my “Rose knows martial arts” headcanon from. as for who taught her…well
a mother will do what’s best for her children
THIS IS AWESOME
