This photo is from last Halloween, when I was a unicorn knight! I didn’t get my horn in any good photos before it broke, unfortunately. :( I’m still happy with the makeup, though! I tried to do a variation on the fawn makeup that was popular recently, using pink instead of brown.
I can never decide whether I want to do something scary or glittery for Halloween, this year included. I wonder if I should go scary since I did glittery last year.

Would you mind doing a tutorial? I love the look!

I’d love to! Hopefully I can find the time before Halloween! I actually recorded myself doing this so you’re in luck! Thanks for asking. :D

My thesis collection presentation finally went up on Tuesday. The response wasn’t completely positive, but my work was no different from most others’ in that way. I only wish there was more discussion about the success of the designs in more specific terms. I know I should be developing more but right now I just want to tune it all out for a while.

OK Highway Patrol Captain George Brown says the best “tip” for women to not get raped by a cop is to “follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over.”http://youtu.be/BO8g8akPWcY (Last third of the video).
Three serial rapists in 3 weeks arrested in Oklahoma, all cops.

Pro tip: if you’re signaled to pull over (whether you’re male or female) and you’re in a place that has no witnesses, turn your hazard lights on to acknowledge the officer’s siren, and drive to the nearest gas station or populated area. This is accepted protocol by every agency. You are not obligated pull over until you can do so safely. This includes personal safety. Understand your rights, brothers and sisters. There are disgusting examples of authority in this world.

HAZARD LIGHTS ARE NOT AN ACCEPTABLE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. IT IS NOT ACCEPTED PROTOCOL BY EVERY AGENCY. DO NOT JUST CONTINUE DRIVING WITH YOUR HAZARD LIGHTS IN CASE THE COP MIGHT THINK IT’S A LOW-SPEED CHASE.
I know that sounds dumb, but hear me out. My mother is a dispatcher for the local police station. I asked her about how to pull over for a cop and even brought up the use of hazard lights, and she told me that it is not always accepted. This is what she told me you can do in order to feel safe when pulling over:
Call the police. No, really. Call and tell the dispatcher where you are and that there is a cop behind you demanding you pull over. The dispatcher can and will stay on the line with you while they look up the area you’re in to see if it’s one of their station’s cops. Then, once the cop comes to your window, you can crack it open (it only has to be an inch!) while still on the phone with the dispatcher. This is definitely, 100% accepted protocol.
The dispatcher will verify that it is their own, real cop, and they will gladly stay on the line with you throughout your interaction with the officer. And God forbid this ever happens to any of you, but if something were to happen to you during this time, you’ve already contacted 911 and given your location to the dispatcher.
Please keep this in mind if you are ever requested to pull over and do not feel safe. The dispatcher will understand. Do not, however, continue to drive, because there might be the off-chance an officer will think you’re flat-out refusing to pull over (a well-lit, populated area might be a ways away).
Stay safe.

I am a dispatcher and I can vouch for the above statement a hundred percent. It is totally okay! Chances are, the officer may have already called in the traffic stop and so when you provide the approximate location, we should be able to quickly varify whether it is one of our officers or not. Also, when you call in, be sure to provide a description of your vehicle, your license plate if you know it, and your phone number. Also, when you are out and about, especially when you are alone, please make sure to always know your location. Pay attention to street signs that you are passing. It is extremely important.

this is my coworker and dear friend, ezra. seven months ago, he made the brave decision to come out as a transgender male. he has begun testosterone treatments and the next step is his top surgery. the company we work for provides insurance for many of the costs of this procedure, but he is still short in his funds. we live in kentucky and as i’m sure you can assume, his transition is not welcome to some. what he is asking for is help from those who do accept his decision to change his life for the better. if any of you can, he asks that you please make a donation for his surgery funds. he thanks each and everyone of you tremendously. if you can’t donate, please share this to others.

if anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. thank you and have a wonderful day (:
