WHOSOEVER HOLDS THIS HAMMER, IF SHE BE WORTHY, SHALL POSSESS THE POWER OF THOR.
ACTUAL GODDESS NATASHA ROMANOV
I always knew she was one :D
As is so often true of comics, a lot of the awesome is in the details. Natasha can’t move the Hammer when she first reaches it. What makes her worthy at the end when she apparently wasn’t worthy just seconds before? Look at panels 2-3 again. Natasha’s got that big ogre right on top of her with his club already going back to strike … and instead of shooting it to save herself, she uses her last shot to bring down the flying reptile that’s chasing that fleeing shuttle. That act of self-sacrifice in the face of certain death is what made her worthy.
I’ve had a difficult time finding my Costume Mojo this year… among other things, this is the first time that I’ve had a full time job that didn’t give me summers off, so it’s going to be harder to find time to devote to costuming anyway.
The solution I’ve come up with, then, is to try more “casual” costumes— basically just cute dresses that are more inspired by a character than directly faithful to source material, something I can wear without worrying about props or ease of movement or what to do with my sword.
I’ve always loved my Chantry Sister Leliana outfit, but it’s super hot and I’ve never really been satisfied with the super-shaky gold puff paint all over the place. Instead of redoing that whole outfit, I’ve been thinking of reinterpreting it as a sundress.
Right now I’m thinking about frankenpatterning Simplicity 2692, using the collar option from E+F and the sash from B. In order to avoid shaky painting, I’d just do some gold lace, maybe using the Venice Leaves on the collar (something in this style, maybe not as long?) and triangley Venice Lace on the hem of the pink overskirt.
I’m not sure yet what kind of fabrics I’d use, other than something light and breathable and absolutely not the prom dress shiny stuff I used on the original. For the underskirt I’d try to do maybe coral tulle or something else airy.
So yes. This is Step One of Project Get The Costume Mojo Back, and I’m going to try to get it done in May.
I like that idea! That’s why I’m doing a punk Grey Warden. It should be cooler and inspired, but doesn’t involve all that scalemail work :)
So I saw a Wonder Woman shirt the other day that said “Girls Will Save the World” and I thought it was a really awesome and empowering feminist phrase, so I decided to do a Sailor Moon version. <3
I was surprised how fun it was to draw the Crisis brooch because I usually hate doing vector stuff. I wanna make mooooore now.
If you think you are bad at naming people or characters just remember: You can’t be as bad as Thomas Thomas…
Unless you are Major Major Major from Catch-22, so named because his father thought it was funny. Once he was in the Army, an IBM computer with a sense of humor accidentally promoted him to the rank of major, making him Major Major Major Major. No one will promote or demote him because his name is too hilarious.
Funny enough, someone brought that story up too! I could see one person named that because it was funny, but 3 people? At the same time?
This also happens more often than one thinks. At least it’s not as bad as Dodo Bufkins JR and Marsha Mallow. OH! And a girl named Satin Sheets.
I kid you not. Real names.
