Still quite a bit left to do, but it’s really coming together! I like the colors in this dress so much more then my red and white version. I think it looks a lot less juvenile and way more magical. 

It’s made from organza and chiffon with a tulle overlay and $60 of fake flowers.

I have information about how I’m making it here! And a video about it here

this is honestly the kind of thing I’d wear for my wedding dress. seriously.

We’ve all heard of Betty Boop. But how many of you knew that she was based off of a BLACK woman.

Yes Betty Boop was based off of Ms.Esther Jones known by her stage name “Baby Esther”. She was an African-American singer and entertainer of the 1920’s. Her singing trademark was “Boop oop da doop” hence the name Betty Boop! She performed regularly at the cotton club in Harlem,New York.

shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”

People always think I’m exaggerating when I say that Obama is decidedly committed to slandering Eritrea and declaring it a terrorist haven to justify further destabilization and unlawful sanctions, but the US government just released a travel warning and the five most “”“dangerous”“” countries to visit & that should be evacuated immediately are CAR, Yemen, Libya, Syria and Eritrea

Blackness tethered to manhood, cisgender, and heteronormative class rehabilitation can never imagine revolution.

Looking into the eyes of a criminal, you have to ask… How would a little girl, a low level thug, a business woman, become the most dangerous villain around?
