    the absolute BEST rival dynamic is where one of them is like “you are my equal unlike any other, you respect me and my power even if you disagree with my methods, i will only die by your hand and you by mine, perhaps i want your attention perhaps i love you, together we challenge each other to unseen heights, we are each other’s destiny, we are intrinsically linked,” and the other person is genuinely like “please die”

    REMINDER THAT LAIKA’S FIRST FILM SOLELY PRODUCED BY THEIR STUDIO HAD TWO FEMALE CHARACTERS AS THEIR ANTAGONIST AND PROTAGONIST WHO, BY SOME FORM OF DEVIL MAGIC, HAVE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FACES

    REMINDER THAT LAIKA’S SECOND FILM NOT ONLY CONSISTED OF A CAST WITH FOUR CENTRAL FEMALE CHARACTERS BUT INCLUDED AN ENTIRE TOWN OF DIVERSE CITIZENS OF VARYING RACE, GENDER, AND AGE. LIKE A NORMAL TOWN HAS.

    REMINDER THAT LAIKA’S THIRD FILM FEATURED SAME SEX COUPLES IN THEIR TEASER TRAILER

    REMINDER THAT THIS IS ALL STOP-MOTION SO EVERY CHARACTER WAS DESIGNED, MODELED, SCULPTED, RIGGED, AND EVEN HAD TINY CLOTHES SEWED FOR THEM.

    also reminder that they make chump change compared to disney who whines and cries that in all their years of experience they can’t handle the prospect of animating a girl with a face different than the rest and that it’s “too hard” because only females can express such a wide range of emotions that it makes them difficult to animate

    if a studio with 20-30 years of experience can manage this then SURELY an established studio with NEAR 100 YEARS of experience can maybe, just maybe, include a female that ISN’T a part of their formula

    Also paranormal had a canonically gay guy in it just saying

    I feel the 16ft tall skeleton from Kubo certainly deserves a mention

    Laika are goddamn ARTISTS and MASTERS OF THEIR CRAFT. Look at the animation on Kubo and tell me it doesn’t feel more like CGI than stop motion sometimes because it’s so smooth.

    I love them so much.

    IT WAS REALLY THAT BIG

    fiddlymoon

    It really was that big!! I went to a Laika exhibit in 2018 and this took up almost an entire room alone!

    Another room was mostly dedicated to the Coraline garden, for reference, the pumpkin eyeballs were about the size of a basketball each

    There was so much crazy detail it was mind blowing!

    God I wish I took more pictures and had a better camera back then cause it was the COOLEST EXHIBIT EVER!

    I mean, who doesn’t love a wall full of faces??

    james-silvercat

    I am utterly in favour of walls covered in faces

    I read this and thought “wow Laika? Like the Soviet dog?”. It was indeed named after the Soviet dog.

    when ppl say that infintalizing all trans men into a hyperfeminine submissive role is bad they mean “call out fetishizers” not “bully femine trans men for fitting a stereotype”

    pansyfem

    trans boys who like pastels and big sweaters arent the reason that a lot of trans guys are fetishized. its the people who view trans men as women and are only comfortable with their maleness when it is viewed through a feminine light. I see ppl getting WAY too comfortable making fun of ‘uwu soft boy transmascs’ just bc they dont want to be seen as one- completly forgeting that someone fitting a stereotype doesnt make them responsible for negative view of a community as a whole.
