I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.

The Gashadokuro are such a cool folklore concept.
My favorite thing is this idea that they somehow are able to silently stalk people despite being almost 100-foot tall skeletons, because no one looks up.

Gashadokuro aka the starving skeletons are the reanimated and combined bones of the victims of starvation. Up to a hundred feet tall, they are heralded by the sound of bells ringing in the ears of their victims. They reach down from above to capture people and bit their heads off. The Gashadokuro haunt the darkness after midnight.

Japanese folklore has a ton of giant skeletons but the Gashadokuro is the coolest + creepiest

wired:

The concept is bizarre, combining a building material from the time of Julius Caesar with a Jetsons aesthetic, but the approach has already worked before.

This newly-revived technique could provide low-cost housing for refugees and displaced people, and generally provide architects with a cost-effective way to explore convex construction.

Seems like IKEA are really shaking things up this year. In addition to the previously announced TV set, they’re also going to release a digital camera made of cardboard called Knäppa (“Snap”). It’ll hold 40 photographs at a time and plugs directly into your USB port. While it’s not the prettiest camera the world has ever seen, I do love the idea of a screen-less digital camera that brings people back to the wait-and-see days of film.

whoa!!

The Basics of Emofuri: a shit translation brought to you by Lupin

princelupin:

hey everyone! since i used Emofuri earlier and made a thing, a lot of people have been asking how i used it without getting so confused w/ all the weird text! and well, here’s my take on a translation for everyone. beware: my handwriting is shit so i hope it’s at least decent enough for you to read. i’ll be including some walls of text below each cap about what’s going on. not everything in the program has been capped and translated (roughly) by me. the only parts that are translated are the ones that i capped. and for all the translators out there who are can read Japanese better than me, go ahead and take a stab at translating + creating an english patch. this one is only temporary.

ALSO, I WILL BE CREATING A SEPARATE POST FOR CREATING AN ACTUAL PSD FILE (FOR EMOFURI) AND IMPORTING IT.

first off, what is EMOFURI?

E-Mote Free Movie Maker, or “Emofuri” is a program that allows you to create character animations using PSD files. It’s similar to Live2D, but way more easier to use since it won’t require dealing w/ lots of numbers. This program is most frequently used when making eroge dating sims. you can export animations through movie / wmv / avi / gif files (NOTE: the program may freeze and close by using E-mote’s exporting system. for the ones i made, i used a program called GifCam).

now if you download this program and see a bunch of weird garbled text (and not actual japanese), this is because your locale is set to English. this goes for anything that you download (whether it be game or program) that is in Japanese. I prefer having your locale set to Japanese to make reading it easier. To do that, follow these instructions. Don’t worry, if you do this, it won’t turn everything into Japanese.

OK! now since that part is covered, onto the program! click the readmore if you’re interested.
