A friend linked me these because he thought they’d be relevant to me, he was extremely correct.  If these pieces of advice aren’t relevant to you, improve yourself until they are.

A good chunk of Tumblr could benefit from this.

I had to apply several of these to myself and it was the best thing I could ever do with my life.

So very relevant

So great.

Wow.

ROBIN COSTUME FOR SALE!
To help fund my film, The Gathering Storm: A Marauders Fan Film, I’m putting some of my cosplays up for sale. First up is my One Year Later Robin suit.
Suit and cape made by Tia Rodemeyer and the belt by KMD Artistry, both now out of the business. Urethane glove fins by BatTexan mounted to Riot Gear armored gloves. Comes with everything but the mask (though I can direct you where to get it). I’m about 6’0, 150 lbs, and it’s snug on me.
 It’s an absolutely beautiful peace, and I hate to let it go, but I think it’s time. Asking $600 + S/H.

It’s served me well over the years, but its time to retire this bird. Might do Nightwing down the line, but right now I need to focus on getting my film funded.

If anyone is looking for an amazing Robin costume contact my bestest bro! He’s doing everything he can to help fund his Marauders fan film. So whether you’re looking for a great Robin costume or if you want to donate, awesome! You won’t regret either! Or both!! ;)

Game of Thrones Drinking Game

It’s finally here! Game of Thrones returns to television tonight on HBO. No doubt there will be many viewing parties, like this one put together last year by Geeky Hostess, and what party is complete without games? The Savory has put together a drinking game for the season. From the looks of it, you won’t need to worry about any of your favorite characters dying because a few minutes in and you’ll probably be completely numb and on your way to forgetting the entire night.

Please drink responsibly.

Daughter of a gun (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧ No idea if such a thing existed but surely there had to be girls born on board in the Age of Sail?

*puts on obnoxious historian hat*

*clears throat*

there were actually tons of women and girls on board ships during the age of sail and it’s really cool history that no one!!! ever!!! talks about!!! 

like captains of merchant ships used to bring their wives and children on board for long voyages all the time (and of course there were plenty of well known female pirate ship captains, and women cross-dressing as men, and prostitutes that more people seem to know of)

there’s actually a really amazing story of one woman, Mary Ann Patten who was the wife of the captain of this ship called Neptune’s Car. Captain Patten decided that he wanted her onboard with him and she was super about this and learned all about navigation and sailing and everything. so this one voyage they’re going around the tip of south america when her husband gets sick and is bed ridden with a fever right as the ship sails into one of the worst storms any of the crew had ever seen and it looks like they might lose the ship or have to stop

so you know who takes over??? the first mate??? 

no.

MARY

she took over the whole crew and sailed that ship through freezing water and pack ice and had it coasting smoothly into the san francisco harbour like it was nothing. and she did this all at age 19. while pregnant.

at one point the first mate tried to get the crew to mutiny against her but they all rallied with her and told him to shut the heck up because she obv knew what she was doing.

there’s a great book about women in the age of sail called ‘female tars’ by suzanne stark that i cannot recommend enough and has way more amazing stories and insights about the myriad roles women and girls played aboard ship during that time period.

(sorry i totally didn’t mean to hijack your post i love all of your art and this is gorgeous i just got over excited sorry sorry sorry)
