One of the weirdest things about having characters while growing up is the odd time distortion you can get if they’re from “modern day”. Unless your character’s age with you in your mind, then each year you have to keep changing their birth date for them to stay the way you picture them.
As an example; I have one character who is roughly 40 years old. You know, late 30s, early 40s sort of thing. Her character is sort of a ‘rough, alternative’ kind of person, but part of her back story is that she was a really main stream kind of teenager. In the 80s. You know, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, puffy skirts, bright colours and big hair, that kind of thing. The problem with that, is it fit when I made the character around 2007 (I was about 13). If she was 17 in ‘85, that would’ve made her 39, exactly the age I had imagined. Now it’s 7 years later, and if she still lives in the ‘modern day’, she’d be pushing 50. That’s not how I imagine her (and she’s my damn character, how I imagine her is the whole point!).
This might seem trivial, but the whole way I imagined the story was that it was a modern day story, partially because I can write modern day easily. The further I get from 2007, the more I’m going to need to research the cars, or music, or clothing of the period, should I ever put this story to paper. So here’s the issue, I either have to give up my idea of a modern, up to date story set in the present day, or I have to give up one of my favourite elements of a beloved character of mine. Growing up is literally making me chose what I keep from something that I IMAGINED in the first place.
Not sure where I was going with this, just that growing up SUCKS.
fun for the whole family
hecka hecker what the frack

RADICAL ANAL BEADS
God, I haven’t heard that name since high school.
After seeing these awesome edits by “thecrownedheart”, I just had to make a few of my own. So here’s a few edited screenshots of our lovely Disney ladies… as men. :D

ESMERELDAMN. Both as a prince and a princess omg.
At first I was like “BUT WHERE’S MULAN?!”, but then I remembered the plot of that movie.
I can never decide whether or not to post my art. I always feel like I can do so much BETTER so all my work gets shoved to the back, rarely seeing light outside of my pictures folder. Help. Make me post my stuff.
I went to the pool yesterday and now my once vibrant pink to blue gradient hair (above) is pastel pink to mint green. Heh, whoops
