    Here it is! The instructions to make a pieced and quilted plague doctor mask!

    Just as a heads up, this pattern is not really recommended for beginners. There is not a whole lot of explanation of the basic techniques, and it requires a fair bit of precision, two types of fusible interfacing, and an assumption that you can keep a consistent seam allowance and do some hand sewing and know when to sew things right sides together and such.

    I am not promising anything, different methods will yield different results, I have never made a pattern exactly as it was written and neither should you. If you want something the same as the next person, go to the shops.

    Actually, nevermind, this is a quarantine craft, stay home.

    Keep reading

    look at this terrible horrible fabric im using for this!!! also can i use decovil for interfacing?

    mctreeleth

    That fabric is stunning and yes, technically you could, although I imagine it will be quite difficult to turn right side out with an interfacing that stiff, so I would recommend doing a bias bound finish rather than bagging the lining. I am also not sure how breathable that stuff is, so it might pay to add some venting holes either under the beak if it is for fashion or under the eyes if you are hoping to wear it as a protective mask.

    The second girl at least read the book to confirm that it was shit, she even had Capote on deck as backup. Chick 1 is just lazy

    kaylapocalypse

    Nope. Girl 2 saw that Girl 1′s absolutely accurate analysis was being shut down just because it wasn’t stated in an intellectual way (in spite of its validity). So Girl 2 reinforced Girl 1′s opinions in solidarity and made sure that it was absolutely clear that Girl 1 was factually correct. WITHOUT taking credit for her observations (”kim is right” instead of “Actually, kim”)  

    Girls supporting Girls. 

    Girls not letting other girls be treated poorly.

    If you read thirty pages of a book and hate it, that’s a good analysis. Girl 1 literally said, “It sucked for these reasons, and I only got through 30 pages.” She was absolutely paying attention and trying to get it. But if all you get is a headache, fuck that book.

    I love this exchange

    i can’t talk shit about the pirates of the caribbean films as if elizabeth swann becoming pirate king didn’t hand my entire ass to me and make me the gay i am today

    generalgrievousdatingsim

    these 2 looks basically defined my sexuality and i’m not afraid to admit it

    generalgrievousdatingsim

    things pirates of the caribbean got right:

    1. will and elizabeth’s love story

    2. elizabeth becoming pirate king

    3. avoiding sexualizing elizabeth or the other female pirate characters in the first 3 films by allowing them to wear period-accurate pirate outfits that aren’t tailored to be revealing and impractical for ‘sex appeal’ just because they’re women

    4. hans zimmer’s entire score but especially the iconic ‘he’s a pirate’ main theme

    prismatic-bell

    5. When the movie came out, morally-gray characters like Jack were actually not really a thing yet in pop culture, and it’s not Pirates’ fault that there are a ton of stupid shitty copycats out there.

    6. I run a corseting panel at cons and literally use Elizabeth’s lace-up scene as a video clip of what historical corseting was actually like, because the only thing they got wrong in this scene is that tightlacing wouldn’t be a thing for about another 200 years (and you couldn’t tightlace with the corset style Elizabeth is wearing anyway). It’s one of the most accurate corseting scenes I’ve ever seen.

    7. Will’s hat.

    8. That scene with all the pirates on the gallows where that little boy starts singing Hoist the Colours? Yeah, that’s fucking legendary. The rest of AWE was kind of a trash fire, but that scene gave me goosebumps.

    9. There’s this great shot in the first one where they really drive home the class differences inherent in this time period by having the governor talking about progress and civilization to Elizabeth in their carriage, and then they cut to a shot outside the carriage where a beggar gets splashed by mud from the wheel. It’s a perfect way to underline that everything is not, in fact, a nice little upper-class fairytale, and to give some weight to Will’s storyline, because he has a lot more in common with that beggar than with the governor.

    10. For its time, the CGI was fucking amazing.

    11. And let’s not forget the work of the makeup department, which had to actually invent new ways of putting on makeup for this movie.

    12. The governor’s death scene. Holy shit.

    13. They could have gone with a Jack/Will/Elizabeth love triangle, but they didn’t. There are some hints Jack is in love (or at least in lust) with Elizabeth, but he recognizes that she loves Will, and that’s that.

    14. You’ve got to admit that wedding was unique.

    15. The introduction of fantasy elements to historical fiction outside of Tolkein-esque fantasy, and how it contributed to and expanded the Fantasy Media boom we’re still enjoying today.

    paddysnuffles

    1. They had a woman of colour play a goddess.

    2. They had a woman pirate right in the first film, when the tradition is to only show male ones (hell, the PotC ride at Disney had a wench auction scene until recently). And it was a female pirate of colour at that!

    3. Elizabeth may not have known how to fight in the first film, but she wasn’t helpless either. Her first instinct was to fight, but she also had the brains to recognize when it was best to hide instead. Plus when given the chance she stabbed Barbosa that one time.

    4. Elizabeth’s lack of fighting ability was not simply because she was a woman, it was clear it was due to her societal circumstances, since we saw other women of different socioeconomic backgrounds being able to fight (and when given the opportunity to learn Elizabeth took to fighting like a duck on water).

    5. The Hoist the Colours scene where we see pirates of multiple ethnicities and their varying flags, reminding us that pirates came in all shapes and sizes and weren’t just white men.

    6. One of the Pirate Lords being yet ANOTHER woman of colour. She may not have had much of a speaking role if memory serves, but even her presence is already a big deal.

    7. The pirates accepting their King is a woman without much fuss.

    Pirates is amazing I will not here a bad word

    Davy Jones CGI is legendary and a ton better than some of the stuff done today 😄

    the-unnecessary-commentary

    I’m pretty sure that female Chinese pirate was a nod to a real, documented female pirate king who was Chinese and had a whole fleet of ships at her disposal but I can’t remember her name rn

    real-jaune-isms

    My favorite part about the Bretheren Court voting wasn’t that they were against Elizabeth for becoming King as a woman and newcomer. They were pissed at Jack for being a chaotic neutral who broke the decades long tradition of an egotistical stalemate by voting for someone besides himself.

    Also, the deleted scenes from Black Pearl and At World’s End that divulge more of Jack’s troubled past, like how he was branded as a pirate by the East Indian Trading Company because he stole a ship full of slaves and freed them.

    “People aren’t cargo, mate.”

    Hobby Lobby just released some new yarn designs - unsurprisingly they stole designs by a few different indie dyers, including lemonade shop, who’s been working on her speckled designs and rainbow splash color runs for a while (lemonade shop yarn is left, hobby lobby is right) :

    She’s not the only designer they’ve stolen unique fiber patterns from, and the indie dyer community is reaching out to a few more dyers with very singular designs that hobby lobby has also taken, so I’ll try to update the list as I can.

    Stolen art is stolen livelihood. Please support artists, small time crafters and creators as you can, and if you recognize someone else’s yarn in the hobby lobby release, be sure to include them and a link to their store. There isn’t much else that they can do to fight this unfortunately.

    billi get food later?

    billi want food!

    billi mad.

    crowleys–angel

    okay but this method of teaching dogs and cats a way of communication is frankly astounding. Watch more of billie’s videos and Hunger4Words (the creator of this sytem) and it’s pretty stunning. yes, there’s a lot of wishful thinking because cats and dogs don’t have quite as complex brains when it comes to language, but the fact remains these animals are a rudimentary form of bilingual. they have their own language (body/scents/vocal) and now they’ve learned to use a very basic form of our language. i’ve seen so many people, linguists even, dismiss that this is just more complex reward association but i mean. dogs have been with us for about 32 thousand years. they’ve evolved alongside us for that long. they are honed in on us. hell, even cats have been our close companions for at least 8 thousand years. that is more than enough time for either one of them to grasp the very basic concepts of our words (especially considering cats literally talk/meow because we talk. that is not a normal thing they do when wild/feral).

    so yeah. this is fucking cool.

    synthicyde

    Once you’ve seen their videos (and Bunny’s as well) it becomes impossible to call it a complex reward association thing. They stop rewarding the animals at a certain point. It just becomes a means of communication. Unless answering a dog’s question qualifies as a reward but then at that point I think we’ve stopped dismissing this system and instead revealed that human language is just a complex reward association system.

    Seriously, though, the French LOVED Edgar Allan Poe, thanks in particular to Jules Verne.

    He even wrote a sequel to Poe’s only novel, and numerous essays about how great an author Poe was.

    By all accounts, Poe (who lived a penniless life in the US) really *was* baffled by all of this.
