My castiel themed kimono I wore twice at the Supernatural #DallasCon 2014.This kimono surpassed any expectations I had. The wings! (squee). A new friend, http://isaisanisa.tumblr.com/, took all these wonderful pictures. THANK YOU!

Here is the link that lists all entries for making this kimono. => LINK

For all you people that are talking about this and bashing the artist who made this outfit.

1. Stop being an ignorant racist. Just because she’s not asian it’s not ok for her to wear a kimono? I know there are several white kimono artists in Japan and LA do you get angry at them for going after their passion? If a white guy makes tacos do you not go there?

2. Her kimono design is accurate. Does it matter that it’s pop culture themed? No, there are Japanese hello kitty kimonos, Anime kimonos, and etc.

3. I agree, go to the Halloween costume stores and bitch about their sexy geisha outfits. Stop screaming at someone who did it accurately.

4. If you are not asian don’t get offended for us.

Ayumi says “彼女の着物のデザインは可愛いし、そんなに怒る事はないと思う。伝統的な着物とは全く違うものだと理解し、彼女をけなすのではなく、彼女の創造力と器用さをみるべきだと思う。”

this is ugliest and most disrespecful thing i’ve ever seen holy shit you fucking rude ass cracker bitch how DARE you

This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success. The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?” In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.” To read Chatterjee’s op-ed on The World, visit http://bit.ly/1u3fvGZPhoto credit: Manjunath Kiran/AFP/Getty Images

While we’re calling out youtubers with a large following who are total creeps, can we add Adrian Van Oyen to the list? He’s an Australian youtuber who legit made a video where he approached women naked, as in totally unclothed, and many of them were visibly distressed.
I know someone who was the victim of a pervert who chose to expose himself to her, and the dude went to jail. Because this is criminal behaviour. The video is age restricted, but it doesn’t change the fact that this is a disgusting example of sexual harassment. And completely illegal in Australia. 
I’ve been to the areas where he filmed this video, and it’s a family friendly park environment. I can only hope no children had to witness this asshat.
When he’s not taking a stroll sans clothing, he likes to use the phrase, ‘I’m just going to go for it,’ and kiss totally unsuspecting women without any consent. He has over a million subscribers and I hate to think about the influence this guy has, and he’s using it to do stupid crap like this. Can people please join me in reporting this guy? (You can find his channel here.)
(Also, heads up anyone from Brisbane, Australia. He likes to film in the City/Southbank, so keep an eye out.)

Shichi-Go-San (七五三) or “Seven- Five Three” is a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for girls (ages 3 & 7) and boys (ages 3 & 5), held annually on November 15 to celebrate the growth and well-being of young children. 

The ages 3, 5 and 7 are consistent with East Asian numerology, which claims that odd numbers are lucky.
Particularly, at the age of seven, a young girl celebrates wearing her first obi, while at the age of five, a young boy celebrates wearing his first hakama pants in public. The age of three marks the first time whereby both boys and girls are allowed to let their hair grow.

Sooo Cute!!!
