Lady Mycroft disapproves of you. She also worries about you. Constantly. But thank goodness she’s always got her parasol on hand - after all, field work is not her natural milieu.
A few more pictures back of my Victorian Lady Mycroft design!! I’m so used to cosplaying smiling, bubbly characters, so it was a ton of fun to be grumpy and pompous as Mycroft! I worked so hard to get that frown right… The main fabric of this garment was a mohair linen blend - lightweight, breathable, pricey and oh so worth it. I’m very proud of the fit on this bodice! All of the undergarments were made by me as well, which actually made fitting the outer garments so much easier. The silhouette is late-1870s natural form, all made with Truly Victorian patterns based on period accurate construction. My spectacular John and Sherlock who I made these with went with a more modern late-1880s bustle silhouette, so it made sense for Mycroft to be a bit old-fashioned!

Do you think that we haven’t been trying hard enough?
look, i get the idea that the polish isn’t a good way to tackle rape culture. i don’t think anyone is suggesting that it’s the cure for rape culture though?
I’m just really pleased that somebody has managed to invent a practical way for people to check for drugs in their drinks.
OBVIOUSLY the solution is to just not drug people’s drinks. but let’s not shit on this innovation bc it doesn’t dismantle rape culture, because i don’t think that was ever the intention
The impression I get is that if they’d made a glass which changes colour when a drug is dropped into it, there wouldn’t be as much of a problem, because then the onus of responsibility would fall on the establishment serving the drinks. But because it’s nail polish, the onus of responsibility falls on women, and therefore it opens up yet another line of victim blaming questions in terms of the steps women are meant to take to not be raped.
So while now there are women that will be able to use their new nail polish to avoid a horrible situation, there are also women that will be questioned about their nail polish after being in a horrible situations, so the rape culture status quo remains unaffected.
The only sort of pictures you should be reblogging of Jennifer Lawrence
have unfollowed 20+ blogs on here already and i will unfollow anyone else who reblogs nude photos taken NON-CONSENSUALLY from these women. it is sexual violation (fueled by the objectification of women) and anybody who participates that is the literal scum of the earth
