Love also emailed Fan Expo and said the reply she received was “inadequate” and felt like a complete brush off. Pirko had a more worrying response:
They stated that their attendees and their team were adults, and it was all a bit of fun that people wouldn’t take seriously. A direct quote from the email ’We thought about clarifying that cuddles must come with consent, but we thought if we’re always putting the rules in front of the fun – well that hurts the spirit of Fan Expo as much as the people that try to abuse our rules.” They also stated that they hadn’t gotten around to putting their harassment policy up yet, but had made it a priority.
Reminding people not to harass other attendees only makes the convention less “fun” for those who were inclined to harass in the first place. For everyone else, it reassures them they can have real fun in a safe environment with fellow fans.

Anonymous asked: “hey i just wanted to point out that the "girly" toys in the ending of the lego movie were actually lego's duplo line!! which is a line of larger bricks for very young kids (theyre less of a choking hazard for toddlers). i think the implication was meant to be that the sister is very young and would probably create a lot of havok??? so its not so much an "eww girls are gonna play" thing but a "shit a 3 year old is going to knock everything over" thing”
Oh yeah, I knew those weren’t actually the toys Lego has been marketing at girls! I do think that the film supports both readings though. She’s younger but she’s also a little girl. Given the absence of any significant women in the film outside of Lucy and a talking unicorn cat I’m not super inclined to give them a pass here.

i’m here to talk bout the lego movie
disclaimer: overall I really did enjoy this movie!! It was fun, often funny, and well paced, and I thought it was actually hilarious and creative in the ways scenery was represented with Lego pieces. if you like silly fun movies, or if you are a film student dying to escape from the gross pretension of cinema studies academia (these categories are not mutually exclusive as evidenced by this post), a+ would recommend
disclaimer 2: go away w/ ‘it’s the lego movie does it merit this level of analysis’ this is actually one of the many ways in which i choose to enjoy mainstream films. i think it’s kind of fun to look at this stuff. also kids movies are genuinely a site for ideological indoctrination and i don’t even mean that in a creepy way - lots of kids’ movies were deeply formative for me in both positive and negative ways, via both dominant and oppositional readings of the text~~
there are spoilers in here

DRAGON AGE INQUISITION CHARACTER KIT #3
To Vivienne, there are no impractical clothes, only impractical people. Her magnificent attire is a sign of her station, the jewel of the high court of Orlais where wealth, power, and beauty are inextricably linked.
A thousand arrows would pierce her breast before Vivienne would don beaten steel for so base an urge as protection. If one must wear armor, then have it flatter the form. Hide it beneath fine fabrics more becoming of one’s status, for steel alone will not protect you from the barbed tongues of Orlais.
To dress for comfort or purpose is a scandal—fashion and splendor are all that matter to Vivienne. Shower yourself in gold, let only the finest silks grace your skin, and wear a king’s ransom in pearls and silver upon your feet. Leave the stained tunics and rough cloaks to the commoners and their mud farms–a proper Orlesian climbs mountains in her evening gown, standing taller at the summit in her formidable high-heeled shoes.

Some DC girls redesigns! An extension to the street wear Super heroines thing I did awhile ago. Unfortunately missed the Project Rooftop redesign contest, but these have been floating around in my head for awhile. I also get a lot of questions concerning the brushes I use for these character portraits. I use 2 brushed in my set to do them, and here they are!
I love the worlds of comics and video games, and I’ll probably be doing more like these :)
The Harley redesign is largely influenced by Kris Anka’s work!
As I’ve already told you, these are such lovely designs! Adore all of them
I WANT A HARLEY HOODIE THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS.
