Here’s Mojito from my new series; ‘A Cocktail of Friends’.
Bodyguard for hire and heavy weight drinker, this diva is trained in Taekando, firearms and boxing but has a weakness for cats.
I’ll be posting info on the comic once I’ve finished the first chapter! Keep a look out for it!
LOOK ME IN THE EYE AND TELL ME THAT HANS’ EXPRESSION ISN’T A SYMPATHETIC ONE
open in high res for a better look
What if Hans actually really cares for Anna? But because he is the youngest brother, he was threatened by his older brothers to take the kingdom of arendale and when queen Elsa’s powers are reviewed he realises he has no other way to claim the kingdom but to betray the one he wants to be with.
He doesn’t really wanna kill Elsa, but he knows that if he doesn’t, he won’t be able to return home. Every night he cries himself to sleep knowing Anna is going to be in a deep freeze obis, knowing he will never get to spend his life holding her hand. Hans is very scared, he knew he was going to regret his actions.
Hans goes to kiss Anna to break the spell, but then he remembers what he’s suppose to do. He makes the heart breaking decision to leave Anna in the cold. When he leaves the room and shirt the door, he leans on the door and slips to the floor in terror of the loss of his love.
Hans heart is thrilled when he sees the curse of Anna released from Anna’s heart. But he also knows he has lost her for good. Hans knows that Anna’s heart belongs to kristoff now.
were we even watching the same movie?
Do you see when he says: Anna? Right before he get punched. Its a happy Anna?
Fairly sure it’s shock.
Because you know, he saw her freeze right before he got knocked out.
i have so many emotions about this
What I think is that in the image as he’s looking at Elsa, he’s jealous. He was ignored for the whole of his childhood by his family, and it’s probably set in stone in his mind that none of them care for him. They wouldn’t even shed a tear if he died, that’s what he thinks.
So when he watches as Elsa’s whole world come crumbling down, he can’t help but give such a sorrowful expression, not because one of his pawns is dead, or that he’s just ruined another of his pawns’ life (just before he’s about to murder her), but because he feels a rush of self-pity for himself, because he knows that were he to die, none of his siblings would care.
HOLY SHIT MICHIGAN DID YOU HEAR THAT
Yeah man! It was raining then it started snowing like a blizzard and thundered while it was snowing and then went back to sleet and rain and snowed and now it’s calm!!
wtf is going on over there
are the gods having sex over michigan?
Okay, so I’ve designed a new OC, called Mojito (After the cocktail, yes) And I’m torn between which colour lipstick I should give her?
I kinda like the green one, but I’m not sure~!
Which one should I choose?
Seeing as how I’ve done both the top ten for best and worst superhero costume redesigns, I feel obligated to put my money where my artistic mouth is and take a stab at fixing or updating some of these costumes. I’ll be taking a similar approach to my earlier take on Batman & Robin, where both the back story and design of each character are fair game. I’ve done five here, and chose them based on one of two criteria:
- It’s a particularly awful outfit that doesn’t fit the character, or
- It’s a solid character who just needs some updating or tweaking
I’ll list these in order of “reboot depth:”
What’s wrong: In the wake of DC’s “new 52” this felt like a no-brainer. Starfire is a decent character who’s always, in my opinion, gotten the short end of the costume stick. I get that she’s supposed to be sexually liberated and somewhat polyamorous, and that’s fine, but dressing like a John Carter’s Princess of Mars-themed stripper doesn’t cut it. Really, up until the Teen Titans cartoon she’s always been in the most awkward and impractical getups for someone fighting crime.
The Fix: I went for the simple route and took some notes from the cartoon (notably the skirt). I wanted to make sure it kept the bubbly, innocent feeling of the character while also hinting at some power (with the exposed arms here). The overall effect is meant to convey someone who’s tough, cheerful and comfortable flying around in the air.
4. Dr. Strange
What’s wrong: I love Dr. Strange, but he’s always had the worst outfits. For a guy who basically hangs out in his house in the West Village, he seems to always wear the most ostentatious getups. He’s not an alien from another planet or from some culture that would dress that way, he’s a grown man who became a wizard well into adulthood. Nothing wrong with having some style while you’re maintaining the balance of the mystic planes.
The Fix: Two parts Vincent Price, one part Christopher Lee and one part Dr. Orpheus, this Dr. Strange is still magical, but with a more coherent design direction.
3. Ms. Marvel
What’s Wrong: Simply put, I think it’s embarrassing for Marvel to showcase a prominent character like Ms. Marvel and have her wearing that outfit. It’s just so tacky, and tells us nothing about the character. Basically they just changed the colors of Jean Grey’s Phoenix costume and exposed more skin. Come on, guys.
The Fix: Since her origins are ostensibly tied with Captain Marvel, I decided to go a route that’s more along the lines of the Ultimate Marvel version of that character, where her abilities come from alien technology rather than vague space magic. The notion that she’s, for example, permanently bound with this technology that she doesn’t fully understand can make for some interesting stories. There can be some potential with this character again with just a little bit of tweaking.
2. Wonder Woman
What’s Wrong: Wonder Woman, in my opinion, is a character that’s always been on the cusp of being really neat but never quite making it like Superman or Batman. Although a feminist pop icon, her origins are too tied up with creator WIlliam Marston’s obsession with bondage. Because of this (and an all-too-frequent parade of poor or sexist writing), she’s never had a solid, progressive design. The 21st century can update this character.
The Fix: One part Thor, three parts Xena. I’d push the mythological angle further. Just as nobody thinks of Thor as “Superman with a hammer” I don’t want Wonder Woman to be “girl Superman,” as she’s sometimes seen. I’ve also tweaked her origin slightly, making her a more literal “statue come to life.” This isn’t as extreme as it seems: in regular canon, Wonder Woman’s origin was that she was formed out of clay by the queen of the Amazons, and imbued with the powers of the Greek Gods. (Note: I am well aware that Greek statues were painted, but for aesthetic & thematic reasons it doesn’t work here. She’s just an old statue, so there wouldn’t be paint.) This, I think offers more story possibilities if she’s less literally human, physically. Her personality would remain the same (nothing more fun than the perspective of an Amazon in the modern world), but we now have an added Greek layer of Pygmalion or Telos.
The costume change is mostly conservative. Because of the strong fetish associations (and overall impracticality for a fighting Amazon), I’ve removed the lasso in favor of more traditional Greek weapons. The overall effect is intended to push Wonder Woman’s core themes further while making her also stand out as more than just “the female superhero.”
What’s Wrong: Since his creation, Superman’s drifted from being a progressive champion for the common man to a patriotic middle-America boyscout who represents the establishment and traditional values. When he was developed in the 30s, Superman was very much a Depression-era hero, mostly going after villains like crooked money lenders and saving people who were being abused by the system. His superpowers came from the fact that he was from a more advanced society, and his morals too were because he was simply a brainier, more sophisticated guy. During and following WW2 and into the Cold War, though, he became an official symbol for American values in particular (it was originally “Truth and Justice,” without “the American Way”). He was now not just an alien, but an alien raised by simple Kansas farmers and his abilities had a more generic “superpower” explanation. This is all fine, really, but I think the original concept is more compelling these days.
The Fix: Two parts Martian Manhunter and Ten parts Fleischer Superman. “Superman: the Man of Tomorrow, Strange Visitor from Another World.” I really want to push that. First off, Kryptonians should actually look like aliens and not white people. Here I have Kal-El from a race of beings whose technology and biology are long since indistinguishable (Clarke-esque space gods, you know the type). They’re strange to our mortal eyes but mean well. I’d keep the “destroyed planet” origin but more heavily emphasize the “non-interference” part of Superman’s mission statement.
If you’ll remember from the 70s movie, his father Jor-El told him he was forbidden to interfere with the course of human history, but when you think about it, that’s kind of vague. What I’ve done is added a Star Trek or Uatu the Watcher kind of prime directive to all advanced species: Kal-El can’t let people know that he’s an alien, nor can he openly interact with them using advanced technology. Still, he’s a compassionate guy and wants to help, so he takes the form of “Superman” to inspire the mortals in a constructive way. Also, the notion that he can take on different forms means that the Clark Kent secret identity need not be as bad as it currently is.
The costume redesign holds to the basic themes but makes it a little more working class. The buttons at the top are meant to invoke overalls, and the sleeves are cut a little higher for someone working with their hands. I’ve removed the spandex and gone with looser fitting slacks, while keeping a short cape and boots, since he’s still an adventurer.
Overall I want to evoke a classic Superman feel while making it a little more modern in its exploration of the sci fi themes. He’s still basically the same guy: an alien from another world looking to fight injustice, but without the overt patriotism and a quirkier execution of the secret identity.
So there you have it. I’ve hope you’ve enjoyed my superhero costume trilogy!
no, no, this is my favorite kristanna moment. Kristoff recognizes that this man not only betrayed Anna’s trust and love, but also tried to kill her best friend and sister Elsa. He had full intention to whup Hans’s sorry butt. But Anna also sees this and rushes forward, makes him stay back with a single touch. And he backs down, accepts it, because he knows her strength and respects her wishes.
best disney prince hands-down.
In other words:
(ʘ‿ʘ)ノ✿ Hold my flower.✿＼(｡-_-｡) Kick his ass, baby. I got yo flower.
She always turned to her dad.
ARGH LET ME TELL YOU A THING.
I saw this little article about “10 Reasons Why Frozen is the most modern disney movie” or something blahblahblah, and reason number one was that Elsa’s parents were abusive.
noooooooooo. no no no no no.
FROLLO was abusive. MOTHER GOTHEL WAS ABUSIVE.
Elsa’s parents did their darn best to make sure none of their daughters got hurt. Her dad didn’t know how to handle ice powers! He didn’t have ice powers! Nobody else had ice powers! No! All he knew was that Elsa had to learn to control her powers, and he did his darn best to help her. Maybe he didn’t go about it correctly. Maybe he accidentally contributed to her anxiety issues. MAYBE HE MESSED HER UP.
But it wasn’t on purpose.
Look at this man. Look how much he cares for his daughter. He’s not afraid to touch her. He’s not afraid to hold her. He gave her the gloves FOR HER OWN PROTECTION, and Elsa turned them into a prison because she was afraid of herself.
This movie is fascinating, not because it showed abusive parents, but because it showed LOVING, WELL MEANING, ADORABLE parents trying to help their daughter in the best way they could. Even if they did it wrong. Even if they didn’t have all the answers. They TRIED.
And that’s the saddest part. Because sometimes, even when parents try their best, they can still mess their kids up. It’s reality. But I don’t think Elsa ever blamed him for trying.
This is one of the most important posts about Frozen. Sure Elsa was a bit messed up after what her Father attempted to teach her, for example; she changed what her father told her “Conceal it, don’t feel it" to "Conceal, don’t feel."
BUTher Father did all that he could and this post above is like one of the most accurate things going.
Made a wrong turn Once or twice Dug my way out Blood and fire Bad decisions That’s alright Welcome to my silly life Mistreated Misplaced Misunderstood Miss no way it’s all good It didn’t slow me down Mistaken Always second guessing Underestimated Look I’m still around Pretty, pretty please Don’t you ever, ever feel Like you’re less than Fucking perfect Pretty, pretty please If you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing You’re fucking perfect
Never forget that <3
Never let anyone make you feel less than perfect.

I’m actually crying
This is my fav song and it’s sad enough as it is so thank you for making it even sadder
I feel so happy right now, thank you.
I’n gonna die of LAUGH, this is so perfect!!!
omfg there are so many notes on this
maybe I should draw some more…
“If I don’t remember who I am, then who’s to say I’m not a princess or a duchess or a whatever she is… Right?”
"I know I’m in my own little world, but they know me here."
This is how I feel a majority of times. I’m an introvert, and though I enjoy company, I also enjoy my alone time a lot, perhaps more than social company at times. But as an actor, writer and artist, I do feel like the only way I can connect with my true self is to be alone and allow my imagination to take over.
So here’s my mind palace, feel free to explore and join me!
Do the magic! Do the magic!
