Tsar Nicholas II chases an officer on his summer holiday, 1910.

What even prompted this? Was this a sudden game of tag? Did he insult his mom? Was there frolicking? Did he playfully steal something?

This is footage from the picnic where a surprise had been arranged for Nicholas: the head of security had his men make fake snowballs so that they could have a snowball fight in summer. :) You can see some of the cloth-and-straw snowballs on the ground.

Apologies for the late acceptance letter. Or maybe you were taking classes all along?


This is great and all, but I highly doubt the quill that registers all babies would not be able to repopulate the list post-Voldemort.

Kelly Link delves into supernatural territory, featuring a mysterious Christmas Eve visitor in an elegantly embroidered coat. And the Jewish narrator of David Levithan’s story undertakes a wild nighttime mission, donning a Santa suit to help preserve a sense of Christmas magic for his boyfriend’s young sister. A rare seasonal treat.

This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!

Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.

Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.

It was fun to see it work after the build-up they gave it during the episode. And I was glad the judges rewarded it for the effect during the runway show, when the transformation happened, despite the fact that afterwards, absent the transformation, it was pretty ho hum on its own just as a dress.

So I was also glad (even though it was cheating, kind of) that the judges gave a co-win to Kini. Because his dress was amazing as a dress.

I don’t care for the manufactured reality-show drama as much. But when someone pulls off something really creative or beautiful it can be breathtaking, which I guess is why I’ve stuck through watching this show through most of a dozen seasons.

Cinna?

So apparently, this is a thing: Greenscreen-clad workers who secretly flip models’ hair during shampoo commercials. (via @makingofs on twitter)

if they would leave the mummy in the commercial I would be 200% more likely to purchase the product

please give green mummy his time to shine
