Korea Adventures Part 1: Travel and the Arrival

Greetings all!!!

I know many of you have been worried since I haven’t been active since I began my journey but I wanted to let you all know that I have arrived safely in Korea!

I haven’t said much about the trip or my plans in large part because it’s been a mad dash to get things ready for the trip while also preparing for Otakon, and then after Otakon things became even more chaotic having only nine days between the end of Otakon and my flight to Korea.

Now at last things can begin to calm down and normalize again so let me update you all on a few things.

A lot of people have asked me where I’m working, what I’ll be doing, and generally what the deal is with Korea and I’m not fully ready to get into the nitty gritty of my job but here’s the basic info:

As for the trip itself I left at 6:30am on August 19th from Washington DC and arrived in Incheon Airport at 2:50pm on August 20th which translates to 6:30am 8/19 to 1:50am 8/20. Between all that and travel to and from airports just about 22 hours of travel. Not to mention that over the 48 hours surrounding that I slept a total of 4 hours so that was fun.

Anyway I’m unpacked and settling into the apartment I’ll be staying in. Since many of you missed it (likely because I’ve been quite bad about posting about it haha) I’m living with Kayla and two other awesome people in a very nice apartment (pictures and thing soon!).

For now it’s getting on it hours and I’m trying to adjust my sleep schedule so I’ll be ready to begin work on Monday.

I hope you all are well and that I’ll be able to talk with you soon. Until then!

xoxo

In Light Of The New 50 Shades of Grey Trailer

fuckyeahsexeducation:

fuckyeahsexpositivity:

E.L. James knows as much about BDSM as she would have found in a five minute Google search, which is to say that she knows precisely jack shit.

50 Shades of Grey does not depict a realistic kinky relationship, nor does it depict a healthy…

Anonymous sent: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

REBLOG FOREVER.

Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society 

ladykorralynnlorelaie sent: Hey Uberwren, have you seen the new trailer for Korra Book Three? It's really good. :D

I have not. I didn’t like Korra book one so I haven’t paid attention to news released related to the show ^_^

lennytastic sent: Hello, I had a quick question for you. I was wondering if you knew the number of books that are in The Looking Glass Wars? I cant seem to find the exact number.

According to GoodReads there are three books, which is what I own as well and then four volumes of the graphic novel plus a couple extra books.

Belle French, Once Upon A Time 2x08 Into The Deep

Cosplayer and photographer myself

Part 1 | Part 2

Close up shots of Belle ^^; You can see some better detail of the dress also muh face.

The dress is screen accurate and was a gift from my mother-in-law. You never see Belle’s shoes during that episode, but the ones I chose are her preferred style and the color went well with the dress. Wig is Ferrari by Arda in Spanish Brown (the most perfect color in existence).

I never was able to get any nice individual shots of my Belle cosplay at Katsucon so I decided to play with the timer on my camera and viola!

I know it’s a simple cosplay, but I’m really quite proud of it and it makes me so happy to wear it.
