Light to Dark.

Autumn is fast approaching which means its time for a transformation!
For as long as I can remember, I have changed with the seasons.
Not necessarily just my wardrobe but my emotions are a bit different as well. I am particularly excited about this Fall season because I feel that I have grown tremendously since last year.

This photo set begins with my last few outfits of the summer, then leads you into just a little taste of what my followers can expect to see this Fall/Winter season. I want to use deep hair, lip & nail colors to accent a dark and mysterious wardrobe. Focusing on cosmetics & shoes, my goal is to address the issues gender variant individuals might face this season when buying clothes and cosmetics tailored for a binary gendered society.
A few topics include facial hair & how I maintain it for make up application, as well as how AFAB can grow facial hair without taking hormones! A shoe guide that connects you with affordable brands that offer trendy shoe styles in sizes 11 & higher! Last but not least, I will begin making the lip colors & nail colors I wear in my fashion post available to you via my Thrift Store! A few other things will take place this fall, but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out!
Along with elevating my style, I also am striving to elevate the presence of House of Alexzander. I’m excited and anticipating a great Season ahead!

Much love,
Xoxo

So your robot character has no emotions programmed

the-right-writing:

What does that mean?

  • Hatred is an emotion. No hatred allowed.
  • Same with anger. “No emotions” also means “no negative emotions.”
  • They need a goal programmed in so that they don’t just sit around doing nothing.
  • It’s possible to have “don’t kill people” programmed and also have no emotions programmed.
  • Longing is an emotion.
  • "Emotionally repressed" and "zero emotions" are very different things. The only way they could feel things would be if they got reprogrammed.

So if we wanted to watch some French animation, what films would you suggest?

pumpkinspiceaddiction:

the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.

A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.

Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.

the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.

The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.

Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.

A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.

The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.  

Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.

But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well. 

Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.

Reblogging over here. French animation tends to do better with diversity than Disney does, hahaha.

I think “Bari 3” and “Why Not?” are my favourite track off of This Is Cave Music.

I mean the whole album is A+++++ but “Bari 3” and “Why Not?” are just fantastic—perhaps tag “Contra Dubstep” right on the end of those as well.

Dutch is, like, so much easier to understand than French and Italian. Romantic languages, right? With the constant la, le, les, il, una, une, blah. It’s almost jarring, how much more sensical Dutch is. Can’t bring much, if any, prior Latin knowledge into this but waah—such a nice break.

LOOK. IT’S AN INFOGRAPHIC FOR RUFFS. This coming from the fantastic French blog La costume historique—at least, I think they’re fantastic? I’m mostly looking at the pictures.
There’s also one that matches ruffs with collars, which is great.
Wish they ventured into the 17th century, but. Still. What a time to be alive.

I can never resist a historical fashion art reference infographic.
