that post complaining about disney princess fanart would have been far more effective if they had been more like “but included belle, alice, etc.”
merida and rapunzel are princesses of both definitions of the term “disney princess” (the merch line definition and the literal princess/royalty definition (both are of royal blood even)), where-as belle and mulan only fit under the merch line definition (pocahontas as well maybe, it’s debatable). previous honorary “princesses” like alice and tink fit under neither definition (at least now, tink stayed in the line for a little while longer than alice, tho alice got the spare princess spot in KH)
so really the picked like two of the most illogical examples. i mean MAYBE you can play off the merida part as being by pixar primarily, but disney owns pixar and she is officially part of the line-up so i mean….
like come on if you’re gonna make a joke, do it right
if that’s a question directed towards me about the last part, yes i think wedding dresses are a waste of money too. at least with holiday-related dresses, it’s something you might be able to wear again the following year, or for events around the same season. but wedding dresses are stupidly expensive and you wear it for barely a day and then stick it in some box to collect dust. so, to me, a wedding dress is like the biggest waste of money on clothing people regard as “normal”. (i also don’t even really find them all that pretty anyway)
i guess it’s worth saying i have never had a “dream wedding” sort of thing, because not only do i hate large celebrations, but personally i’d much rather spend money on doing something far more memorable (while i have no “dream wedding”, i have a “dream honeymoon” (it’s going to disneyworld for like a week, staying on-on site at one of the high end hotels, having a few character meals (cinderella’s castle is a fairly high priority one), having dinner at the hibachi portion of the epcot japanese restaurant, going on all my favorite rides with them, taking goofy pictures around the parks (bonus: with characters), etc etc.))
some woman with her kids asked me about specifically easter-related clothing. we really haven’t had any besides a small group of dresses that might be considered “easter dresses” but no nothing really easter specific.
she gets all “back in the day it’d be the first thing you’d see in a store”
lady it’s less than a week till easter, a large portion of our specific store’s customers DON’T celebrate easter (thus we might not have gotten that much in in the first place), and more importantly honestly what do you need something specifically for easter for anyway. really, that seems like a waste of money to me, clothing for a specific event that’s just one day.
i’m going to finally start my cosplay for mirai within a few weeks
i made an order for a mirai wig after some searching (ended up on lucaille which has an awesome looking mirai wig as well as generally positive reviews (plus damn that pricing even with shipping from china), looks like it’s less styled when it arrives but that’s not a big deal, minimal styling is no problem), and i’ve had the fabric and base stuff for a while now, just haven’t gotten to -making- it. gonna try to set aside time to do so next week if i don’t this week owo
wine tastes so bad. I’m convinced the whole world is in on an inside joke together trying to persuade me that wine tastes good to them. there’s no way any one can like the taste of it. it’s like bug spray. the whole frickin world pretends to like bug spray. I don’t understand why. stop the madness
wine is an acquired taste. if you don’t like it, acquire some taste
