I’m finally calling bullsh*t on the whole “Usagi is supposed to be chubby” arguments. I just don’t buy it, not even from Naoko. Her artistic skills improved but she didn’t make any alterations to Usagi’s figure in the reprint manga - not even ONE image… not even in her new color illustrations. There is no version of Sailor Moon where she looks even remotely chubby so in my mind, Usagi wasn’t ever chubby. The SMC art was the final nail in the coffin, imo. It would’ve been nice, though…

The only reason Usagi is so skinny is because Naoko’s art style seriously lacked in the body type department. By words of god (excuse the tvtropes talk), Usagi is supposed to be chubby.

The thing is, Usagi is representated skinny because of the image her early art gave of her. If she had drawn her in the old manga’s style, you have no idea how many dudebros on image boards would have yelled at her.

You can clearly see she is rounder in the early chapters of the manga. Also, nothing prevents you from having your headcanon. Just don’t say there isn’t a single evidence of this.

Yeah, okay, that’s a load of shit, and I’m kinda sick of seeing people jump to Naoko’s defense every time this comes up, because the confessor is absolutely correct.

Not even in the earliest

of manga pictures, is Usagi ever drawn chubby. Not in chapter 1, not even in that picture you provided, never. All the girls have the exact same body types throughout the entire series, only differencing in height and eye shapes.

Drawing a bunch of skinny girls and pointing arrows at them saying “chubby” or “muscular” doesn’t suddenly make them not skinny.

And the old “her art style wouldn’t allow it” excuse is also shit, because an art style isn’t sentient, nor is it absolute, unchangeable or unadaptable. An art style can’t be blamed for how art looks, the artist is to be blamed. Naoko never made even a small attempt to draw different body types for the girls. That’s not to say she was unable to, because she did draw a couple of minor characters chubby, but guess what, they were always portrayed as jokes. Heck, she even made the very idea that Sailor Moon would be chubby into a joke.

So yeah, Naoko calling Usagi chubby while never drawing her as anything but thin? Pretty awful. And what’s even more awful are the fans who not only defend her, but actually go praising her for her “desire for body diversity” or whatever, ew.

My finished Captain Eo costume

My friend Bryan made a Captain Eo costume years back out of a white jacket and tic-tac boxes that he painted with Sharpie.  It was easily recognizable as Captain Eo, but he always wanted an upgraded one.  Several years back, there was a full scale picture of Captain Eo at Disneyland where I got a good look at the costume.  Bryan once more lamented about how much he wanted a better, accurate costume, and I for some reason blurted out “I could totally make that.” 

Shortly after, I began the mockup of the jacket.  Using the only pattern that was ever used on this jacket (Simplicity Suedesays pattern 1947), I whipped out a rough version of the jacket.  It was insane; there was so much topstitching, odd seams, and just randomness.  However, it also sparked a fever inside my brain that kept telling me “if you can make this, it will look AMAZING.” 

Bryan and I scoured the LA Fabric District in September of 2013 for a white poly-cotton blend that had just the right amount of sheen without being too heavy.  I then got distracted with sewing my niece’s Halloween costume and work got crazy, so sewing the costume didn’t actually start until late April/early May of this year.  The costume was finished the Saturday before Comic-Con. 

I was terrified that Bryan was going to roast; this costume is HOT. 

The jacket has 3 layers: the poly-cotton outer layer, a layer of muslin to support all the top-stitching, and a light cotton lining. 


(ALL the topstitching!)



(Look at all that detailing that no one took photos of!  :-( )

The pants are worse: 

The bottom layer is a pair of Nike golf pants, then there are 3-5 layers of the poly/cotton, batting, and cording.  Not to mention over 200 metal rivets and studs.  (and a murse.  I had to make him a murse). 

I can’t take all the credit on this:  Bryan and his friend Mal did all of the resin/acrylic and light work: all of the light boxes, shoulder rods, and all the pieces on the belt.  He was an absolute trooper and had to make 3 trips all the way day to San Diego (as he lives 3 hours away) for fittings and costume piece pickups and deliveries. 

Even these photos (including the higher rez version of that photo) don’t show the insane amount of detail on this costume. 

The costume was a HUGE success at the Con (which I’m flattered about), but I’ve already gotten bombarded by people asking me to make one.  This unfortunately was a one-time-only vanity project for my best friend, I’m sorry to say.  We set out to make the insane costume and we did it.  :-D  :-D 

My crazy-awesome friend Rachel, everyone.

I LOVE THIS!

Captain EO!!!!

#THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine’s not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wears a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor to the Time War, but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to right his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.

Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.

He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.

Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.
