Fashionably Depressed; are Depression and Creativity really that linked or am I just a stereotype?


It’s 1 AM and, though it’s hardly odd to be awake at that time, it is odd to be thinking the thoughts that swarm through my mind. I recognise the signs, and actually, it’s dangerous. I only ever have these thoughts sporadically, every few months at most, but every once a year (and hopefully never any more regular than that) these thoughts become overwhelming, and suicidal ideations become more than just an ‘imp of the perverse’ sort of thing.

I was going to write this article as part of a magazine I’m working on, but due to different circumstances, chose to write it and post it on my blog instead. I apologise for the difficult to read format, I’m not too sure how to change that with my theme.
WARNING: This blog post is extremely personal in the first few paragraphs, and for some may be triggering, but it’s something I’ve been wishing to write for a while now.

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.


No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

i’ve reblogged this before but this one has further breakdown of exactly why, and i love it. (also hell yes, kudos to the costume department for this; it’s wrong, but it’s so clearly DELIBERATELY wrong considering how well they nailed it during the 40s sequences).

is that scarlett’s terrible iron man two hair

did shield just have a bad year that year



PSA: because I keep seeing that shitty manipulated photo of Emma Watson on my dash. THAT PHOTO WAS PHOTOSHOPPED.  The original photo (with another from the same shoot, is from 2011 with Mariano Vivanco) are pictured above. Please don’t perpetuate this error. 

Deliberately spreading an altered image of Emma Watson which purports to show her breasts as a statement against threats of nude photo leaks is the height of hypocrisy and whoever did it should be ashamed. (x)
