text that says Renay's Section

Well, after a short, unintended break (some of the blame lies with the cat in the cone of shame — stop stressing me out, kitty!), I'm back to cry over the length of my to-rec list because I'm overwhelmed by how much there is (Iā€¦like a lot of things).

START SMALL, get back in the habit! \o/

[ART] [Final Fantasy X] Yuna by [tumblr.com profile] chibiusaysdraw
Query: will I ever tire of Yuna art using excellent lines, water themes that invoke flowers, and soft colors? Answer: probably not, no.

[ART] [Guardians of the Galaxy] Guardians of the Galaxy by [tumblr.com profile] megatruh (Ensemble)
I really like space.

I have an entire folder that my computer uses to pull wallpaper ever minute and it's filled with nothing but space pictures, mostly from APOD, but also a lot of space art/artistic renderings. Here are our heroes against set against the ~infinite beauty~ of space, which I am really awed by! I love this.

(They would totally carry Groot around in his pot so he didn't feel left out.)

[ART] [The Raven Cycle] Ronan by [tumblr.com profile] cassandrajp
Blue Lily, Lily Blue came out recently. I haven't read it yet because I started it, got terrified of it ending and backed out like a coward. I'm considering a full on reread of the series to prepare myself emotionally.

(Is there ever a way to prepare yourself emotionally for a Stiefvater book? Signs point to no. BUT I CAN LIVE WITH THE LIE FOR NOW.)

I never thought I would love Ronan this much. Auuugh, the wheel, the hint of his tattoo, the wing. This is perfect.

[ART] [Sailor Moon] Sailor Mars by [tumblr.com profile] justira
More excellent Corset Scout!

This adaptation is pretty brilliant; the heeled boots with the red tips, actual girding of loins, and the necklace! :D

[VID] [MCU] Warrior by [livejournal.com profile] findthesea (3:55)
Jodie, this is relevant to your interests! In fact, I feel like you led me to this somehow. It was either you, or someone out there who been feeding us awesome vids featuring women. I'm very grateful, because this is a wonderful vid! Of course, I'm partial to Natasha and Peggy, but all of the characters get fantastic moments in this vid. I'm 150% biased in favor of all the different ways these people get to be strong and powerful; it's not just about hitting hard or being physically tough, but being clever and resourceful, too. Although true facts: the moment around 1:50 is pretty damn good for me. :D

[COSPLAY] [MCU] Black Panther & Iron Man by Sean and son (Black Panther, Iron Man)

It seems like an especially good time to link you to a great piece of Black Panther cosplay (although, the guy's son is kind of stealing his thunder with that tiny Iron Man suit).

[COSPLAY] [Pacific Rim] The Kaidonovskys by [tumblr.com profile] kawaii-mcnipples and [tumblr.com profile] tenta-cowles(Sasha Kaidonovsky, Alexis Kaidonovsky)

'...take a very, VERY good look at those jackets. Those are ALL SAFETY PINS!'


[ART] [The Mindy Project] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] sirdef (Mindy Lahiri) (Warnings: Flashing images)
A very cool 'costume change' image that flicks through a whole range of Mindy's styles. I especially like the 'Shopping is my cardio' shirt, the pink suit with tie, and that the artists included an image of Mindy wearing her scrubs and glasses.

[ART] [I Ship It] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] nessysketch (Zoe Smallman)
Zoe belting her wizard rock song 'Horcruxes'! I love that she looks so emotionally involved in the song in this image.

[ART] [Harry Potter] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] aud-works (Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger)
I demand that you click through and read the commentary the artist attached right now! It is just ... I can't even talk about how heart melting it is when combined with the image of easy post war domesticity the artist has created.

[FANCAST] [Harry Potter] Hogwarts Founders by [tumblr.com profile] supernatasha (Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Rowena Ravenclawand Helga Hufflepuff)
So, tell me more about this prequel movie you're making. Like, when will it be out? Idris Elba and Angel Coulby — just imagine it with me for a second.

[ART] [Harry Potter] harry and ginny unwittingly find themselves in muggle london a little too close to halloween by [tumblr.com profile] burdge (Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley)
A really cute image of grown up Harry & Ginny meeting a Muggle girl around Halloween. I think Ginny is my favourite thing about this sketch with her surprised face and her freckles and her adorkably drooping hat.

I kind of remember seeing this on Tumblr so maybe I fav'd it so I'd remember to come back to it? I am saving that for tomorrow night because I'm sure it will make me forget the glitterapocalypse that is sure to await me in the kids section of our shop :P

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
