Mind you, I don't post blatant porn or gore, but some of the Signal boosts can be triggering in nature, and people still consider artistic nudity porn. Also, while I try to remember not to do so, I swear, and it tends to slip every so often.

Might be possibly best to just take a break from Tumblr, considering you get and -answer- to the hate people send you, and yea... Do yourself a favor and take a break, a potentially long break.

(I’m pretty sure this is the same group of anons that flood my inbox every chance they get.  But on the offchance they aren’t, or someone feels this way, I need to answer these.)Where did I say I wasn’t going to listen to important issues or that I was taking a neutral stance?I am literally taking a break from stressful things, and turning my dash into things that are therapeutic.Just because I don’t want to see important issues on one website that I visit for maybe an hour a day, doesn’t mean I am ignoring things, or standing neutral.  All I am doing right now is doing what is best for my mental health.
I am not in a good mental place right now to handle a whole hell of a lot.  I haven’t been able to see a therapist in over a year, and I have taken on full time schooling and work.  I am stressed to the point of being sick. Right now, I am doing what I can to ease the stress until my health insurance kicks in and I can go back to seeing a therapist and being on my meds.
If you think people doing what is best for their mental health is some sort of injustice, you’re pretty gross, to be honest.  People can’t help with issues if they are struggling to take care of themselves.  
Calling people pissbabies is also not a good way to get people to listen to you, by the by.

I’m horrible levels of stressed lately, so if I unfollow you, please don’t take it the wrong way. Right now I am trying to get my dash to be mostly cute things, art, fandom, and other non-stressful things for the sake of my mental health.

Did you go to the Naruto photoshoot at Anime Boston 2014? I was wondering, because I remember a trickster Dolorosa taking photos there!

Ahhh, yes I was!

I made a couple more tentacle chess sets!  Gold and Silver as well as purple and blue.  Only these ones are different.  They’re tinier than my usual foot by foot chess sets!  These ones are 6”x6”, and each piece ccan sit on top of a Canadian nickel. 

I will be having these two sit on the community art table at Portcon Main, and they will be selling for 40$ each!

The chessboards can be found in my shop here! http://www.storenvy.com/products/8150136-miniature-tentacle-chess

Quick question. In your 2nd (i think?) Dolorosa cosplay, did you make the grub plush yourself? if so, is the pattern yours or did you get it from somewhere? (if you used a pattern that is...)

Sorry it took so long to get back to you!

I actually did make the plush myself!  The pattern is actually a mix of a couple of patterns.

For the body portions, I essentially did the bottom pattern in this image

However, instead of connecting them all the way at the ends, I left them open to connect to the other portions of the body and head.

For the head itself, I actually used something closer to the 3 piece construction of a ball, only I aimed for it to be a bit more elongated in shape (Does that make sense?) That way, there was a spot on the ball where there were no lines for the face, and the other side there was a hole that connected to the rest of the body.  Then the legs were essentially long pieces cut out, sewn, stuffed, ends sewn and attatched, and the face was iron on print out shirt decal.

I hope this helps!

This is how me and my family are living these months.

My mom has a great job but doesn’t make enough to support all five of us. She’s working extra hours but it isn’t enough and with school starting for my brothers and them needing over priced uniforms, we’ve all reached the end of our rope.

On top of this, my mom also has diabetes and sometimes has trouble getting the money for her medication. And as people who have/are dealing with this kind of disease you know that everything is so much more harder for her. When she gets a paper cut it can last a month and when she gets caught in the rain, she is guaranteed to get sick and as she says so many times “[she] cannot afford to get sick”.

Right now we are trying to move from this house into a smaller, more affordable one but the chances of that happening anytime soon are dwindling. In addition to this, my mom wants to visit our sick grandfather in New York who has multiple myeloma. If anyone who has heard of this would know that it affects your organs and there is no cure for it. We are all hoping for one last visit before he passes on.

I’m asking that you please help us. I don’t like this life for my brothers who have to wonder if it was okay that they are ramen for breakfast or that my mother can’t see her father one last time. Anything and everything you donate will be used to help my brothers and mother have an easier more enjoyable life.

I have set up a fundraiser and a paypal on my blog. Again, anything and everything you can spare will be much appreciated and if you cannot donate, please share this so that it gets around.
