As a black person this makes me really proud but at the same time it really frustrates me because the news never focus on the positive qualities of blacks which in reality actually out weighs the negatives but the media only focus on the negatives.. why does a 4 year old black boy cussing makes huge media headlines but a 4 year black girl genius does not……that’s what really frustrates me.
Reblogging to recognize this greatness!
How do people usually react to seeing you knit in public?
I got a lot of, “Is that knitting or crochet?” and “What are you making?” I didn’t get many (serious) requests for things to be made, but I did get asked how much it would cost for, say, a pair of handknit socks.
When I quoted $80-100 in seriousness and said that it was a deal at that price, ($20 for good sock yarn plus the cost of my time as a skilled craftsperson to make them), the guy balked and walked away. Usually I say, “Sure, I’ll knit you anything you want - $1 a stitch.” Knitters and craftspeople will usually snort-laugh at that. Non-craftspeople don’t seem to understand the SERIOUS numbers of knit stitches that make up even a pair of socks (~20,000 in a 64-stitch sock with a 4” leg).
I don’t express opinions on FB anymore.
Just my $.02, so take it how you’d like, but if there was no demand for ‘doorbuster deals’ and ‘come see us Thanksgiving Night’, retail stores might not be as inclined to ruin their employees’ Thanksgiving Day. If consumers don’t show up, sellers don’t have incentive to do this. Instead, maybe we should sit down with our Near & Dears, be thankful for what and who we have in our lives and leave off buying new stuff for a day (or two) so that retail employees and service industry folks can enjoy a day off with their families too.
D/FW yarn crawl, and I might have bought a thing or two…
It’s said that 90% of people will see the same word first. Don’t cheat! Type the first 3 words you see in the comments and then look and see what everyone else saw!
Happiness, intelligence, freedom (in that order)
Success, experience, humour
I’m getting pretty sick and tired of seeing comments like this on my pictures.
Look. I know I cosplay a super sexualized character. I accept that. I love Moxxi and everything she is. I don’t pretend like my boobs AREN’T in your face in this cosplay, because they sure as hell are. That’s who Moxxi IS.
If you said that to Moxxi you’d get one of two things depending on her mood. A few rounds from Rubi or a hefty price tag you couldn’t hope to achieve even after weeks of looting.
Try as I might, I’m NOT Moxxi. I’m a real life human being on Earth. Not Pandora. Not Elpis. I’m not a doll or a pair of boobs. I can’t blast you out of my sight with my favorite corrosive pistol, but I CAN get out the banhammer and paste your name/username everywhere for the world to see what a disgusting creep you are.
This is not a compliment. This is harassment. This is disgusting. This is not how you treat anybody, cosplay or not.
And I will not tolerate it.

Thanks so much for the reblog! If anyone seeing this ever gets harrassed in this way, don’t ever hesitate to ban/block and report! Numbers are far less important than respect and support.
Cosplay =/= consent. She’s lovely. Don’t ruin her day with filthy talk because you think she owes you her attention. She doesn’t. She does this for her. Not for you. /end soapbox
Moxxi/@enasnivols/Kickass Human Lady Person, you keep doing you. You’re the BEST at it. :)
Vagueness and more vagueness
Sometimes it’s not the actors that ruin something. Sometimes it’s the fans. Like rabid fans that choose to hold someone up even when they act like asshats.
Actual fans might call the actor on it, encourage that actor to maybe assess words that the actor chooses to use. Ah well. Turns put there are plenty of actors who aren’t followed by mindless fools who hang on every word of the actor AND the highly dysfunctional character that the actor chooses to portray.
