It’s coming up to Winter, it’s cold, and due to Government admin errors and several other hits, we’re now living below the poverty line and can’t afford to heat our home or eat.
Edit: now we’re losing a further £250 a month and everything has taken an extremely dire turn
we can’t afford anything now
we literally just got a letter telling us that we’re losing £250 a month from are benefits thanks to new cuts
we already barely survive on very little and this is just like a death knell
i’m applying to apprenticeships and jobs but none will take me over younger people [that they can pay less] or older people [with more experience]

we can’t take a loan out, because the repayments would cripple us and i just

I was in the shower shaving for like… 45 minutes, and I STILL had to forgo shaving one of my legs because I was concerned I was running late for lunch (it turns out I wasn’t, but whatever).
I also ruined my razor, because I didn’t think to trim any of my hair first, but that’s okay.
Also look at all that fucking hair. There’s so much of it. I had no idea I had that much hair on me.
Tomorrow I will shave my left leg and run clean-up on basically everywhere else (it’s pretty patchy).
Aren’t you supposed to grow a mustache? what the fuck is full shave november.
The opposite of No Shave November. Lots of women get flak for participating in No Shave November and letting their body hair grow out (I can’t find the post with a bunch of screencapped tweets about it, but this is the next best thing), but the vast majority of guys (myself included) have absolutely no idea what a pain feeling like you have to shave your body hair is like. So, for the entirety of the month, I will be shaving my legs, chest, and armpits on a regular basis (as well as my usual regimen of shaving my face).
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
I created these leggings from scratch, designing each texture, and then created each part of the leggings to make the pattern shape. I then digitally printed them onto the Spandex myself, in my printing class. And of course, sewed them up! I used a number of photos of Rabbit as reference for the textures, so there’s a lot of detail in the plates. (even little swirls and curls of oxidization!) See if you can see which parts of the leggings relate to parts of Rabbit’s face design, hehe.
I plan to get started on making leggings inspired by the Spine and Hatchworth too!
Edit: The close up shot is the best representation of the IRL colours. My dark room and my crappy camera make taking pictures hard!!!
mermaid dresses are cool. flirty and cute. and would coincide with the vampire collar. and the tummy part to kinda match spine style wise. because cohesion makes me happy. i fail at coloring today tho sorry
