No Shepard without Vakarian



The last three Disney films that starred POC were the Emperor’s New Groove in 2000, Brother Bear in 2003 and Princess and the Frog in 2009.

What did they have in common?






Well, that’s wrong first of all. Atlantis: The Lost Empire had a dark skinned character voiced by a black woman (Cree Summer), so they obviously aren’t white. You also didn’t mention the Hawaiian Lilo and Nani from Lilo and Stitch

Let’s look at the movies you did post, however.

1) The Emperor’s New Groove. There is very little doubt in anyone’s mind that the movie took place in anywhere other than the Incan Empire of South America. There is little doubt that the emperor of the Incan empire is an Incan. All of the characters are Incan  and have Incan features - except Yzma, who is purpleish. But just because a single person was transformed into a llama does not mean that they’re racist or erasing identities.

2) The point of the story is to show brotherhood, and they chose the medium of the story to be animals, hence the name Brother Bear. It’s not about the struggles of Inuit people, it’s about bonding. But the main character has an Inuit name, and established at being Inuit, and there aren’t white characters in the movie.

3) And…so the main character was transformed into a frog in a modern retelling of The Frog Prince. So what? She is still obviously voiced by a black woman, and is shown to be black before the transformation, and the story end with her being human (and black). It’s not like they’re trying to say that she’s not black - they’re saying she was transformed into a frog, but is still the person she was. The white characters are minor, or used as a sidekick.

You’re ignoring the other non-white characters that Disney has had - such as Mulan, Jasmine, and Pocahantas.

what this made me realise is that helen’s certainty implies that dash and violet were both showing signs of their powers as infants and that is the funniest thing i have ever thought of in my life because one has super speed and one turns invisible can you picture first-time parents trying to deal with a baby that sometimes fucking disappears

Video Game Meme / Seven Male Characters [6/7] → Zaeed Massani 

I have serious headcanons about Zaeed. Some of them are probably very wrong. Take that how you wish.

My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”

Here’s a “life-hack” for you.

Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.

I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”


It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.
It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.
Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.

That rich red is only one application too.
Plus it smells great, lol.

So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.


this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*

You can mix the powdered stuff with water (no sugar) and use it to dye wool… just in case that might be of any use.

yup, going in my cosplay tag
