It is so exceptionally hard to pull off that cartoony look, but this chick like… knocked it out of the park. Perfection.
OH MY GOD THIS COSPLAYER
seriously JUST BROWSE HER GALLERY
Hollywood: “But we can’t make the costumes look like they do in the comic books or cartoons! It’s too unrealistic!”
Hollywood: “It won’t look right!”
Hollywood: “Fans demand realism!”
Me: "YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIIIEEESSS!!!!!"
So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book.
Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness.
Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)
And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him.
THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.
AU where Dean and Cas are highschool sweethearts in a small rural town, sneaking off into the wide open spaces on the outskirts to get some time away from the world. Dean drives a pickup - even though he swears that one day his dad’s gonna let him have the Impala - but at least…
Oh, hi Tony!
Reblogged just for the shot of Avengers Tower. Also the fact that, for a few minutes there, Tony Stark’s life was in Steve Rogers hands. Think this makes up for the bomb Tony saved everyone from?
Me in the theater: “Derp derp, Steve is going to save the day, wow explosions look at all the explosions wow Sam don’t fight Crossbones that is a bad, derp hey look they’re targeting people, why is the President on the Hill that’s dumb get into a bunker continuity of government is so fucked right n—HOLY SHIT IS THAT STARK TOWER? SHIT FUCK IS THAT TONY??? SAVE THAT DOT STEVEN. SAVE THAT ONE DOT IN PARTICULAR OR SO HELP ME GOD.”
an apt description of my reaction too
