Some faux-DLC bushes I made for Animal Crossing: New Leaf. They would sprout every three days like trees and produce 3-6 berries at a time. The ones that produce 3 berries at a time are rarer and the berries are worth more. For 6 berries a piece of the Alpine furniture set would be able to be modded to feature the berry. I am planning on redoing the alpine furniture set to feature feature the berries. 

Cute! I’d love this!

First day at school, Gaza, Palestine.

this is the most important thing right now.

{These sets are comprised of Rapunzelsannalemon -Rapunzel, Elsa, Anna, Honey Lemon- and two special Disney guests! See if you can guess who!}

  1. I am being completely sarcastic in my awe
  2. None of these categories were made up for the sake of loaded language. Each has been used in at least one sincere/serious instance of justification or defense or denial of Disney design similarities.
  3. All these model carbon copies congruities factor right in to Disney’s lack of visible diversity!

Threw this together for a number of reasons. 

Partially because when confronted with this image (or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one) or any of the comparison shots that show the similarity between Rapunzelsannalemon, defenders of the insipid character design consistently bring up the above features to highlight the perceived distinctiveness, or as examples of “unique” and “distinguished” character design differences between the girls.

But mostly because, for all the honey/strawberry/platinum contrast and various neck widths to be found among these characters, they’re all still scooped from the same puddle in Whitelandia. There are so many other manifestations that could be represented— countless other demographics that Disney keeps tossing aside in favor of revisiting the Nth White royal.

**It’s also worth noting that while criticism of the similarity among Rapunzelsannalemon has been mentioned as a standalone problem, I bring it up as a sub-point re: analyzing the lack of racial diversity in Disney (Princess) films.

"BUT #EYEBROWS" is also a shitty justification because it contributes to the sidelining of the valid concerns of people who are perpetually erased and marginalized in Disney films (specifically the princess line) let alone the media at large. #Eyebrows-Defense contributes to the belittling, ignoring, and trivializing of those concerns. 

White as default is no accidentDesigns have power. Representation is potent, influential, and formative— and who is sidelined is telling. 

Mind you, Disney is (SUPPOSED TO BE/has positioned themselves as) this outstanding inspiring modern paragon of creativity, design, diversity, and innovation. Yet they have tossed so many sameface white girls at us that one of the strongest defenses of recent designs boils down to hair color and nasolabial folds. Ok. 

This is a matter of them being able to knowingly fall back on the same model, the same design, the same type because they know that they are safe in recycling the same White starting point with new hair, or eyes, or eyebrows, or freckle patterns. They know that they will be defended in their choices to the ends of the earth, despite perpetuating an endless status quo reinforcing whitegirl avalanche.

In their own words, Disney is “the global leader in family entertainment”. The have operations in over 40 countries. They are agents of socialization for countless children. The fact that Disney possesses such power and influence (and that they have such a stake in childhoods) is why who they chose to represent and how often is important! 

Disney is failing to represent an overwhelming segment of their audience, and in that sense, they are failing not only their audience at large, but their own core values. Disney can and should do better. 

While you can certainly enjoy Disney and the work it produces (I do, perhaps surprisingly), please consider being more receptive to criticism and analysis, as well. It matters.

I need to make more seasonal stuff. Based on different colors. I only have the First Top Gray Stones version so we’ll have winter, autumn, summer, and spring colors for the grass.

stand up for girls and women who don’t like to read. stand up for girls and women who can’t read. stand up for girls and women with low IQs. stand up for girls and women who can’t write. stand up for girls and women whose access to education has been prevented. for those with learning disorders. for those who mix up “your” and “you’re” because it’s not that big a fucking deal tumblr. stand up for women who are called ableist slurs for these things and stop implying that the only way to be a feminist icon is by being an intellectual.

The Australian counter terrorism raids launched this morning and are already brutally affecting innocent Australian Muslims.
Maywand Osman, who was detained during the raids at Waterloo Rd in Marsfield but not arrested, said: “I opened the door this morning at 4:45am to about four police officers.
"They asked me to raise my hands. I immediately raised my hands. Four officers then jumped at me and one punched me in the face.
"They threw me to the ground and started hitting me in the head and pulling my hair.
"One officer grabbed me by the hair and said, "You piece of shit’.
While they were beating me I heard one officer say, ‘Just don’t make him bleed’.
"They then went inside my house to conduct a search. They found nothing in my house and I was not under arrest or in custody at any point in time."



This makes me so mad
