To all the Tumblr users who tend to use tags very liberally:


Let’s play a game.

Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.











You can’t see all of this kimono coordination in the first photo, but you can see enough to understand the weave is a kasuri-type design (like a tapestry, the design is woven into the fabric itself) of bamboo and swallows (one is visible on her sleeve). 
The bamboo has green stems but yellow leaves—it is autumnal bamboo. Dark blue is also often associated with autumn kimono. 

As you can see in the second photo, the obi is a Nagoya obi with a shibori (tie-dyed) texture which is often very expensive. 
Dark blue with light spring-green is a classic color combination you should try in your own kimono wardrobe. It always looks great.

I need this kimono in my collection like whoa. It would look so good on my height (I am a tall person, I need big patterns) and it’s my favorite color combo.


Hello my dearest, darling followers. I have a request to make of you. I’m doing an art project which involves me dressing in other people’s clothes and putting the pictures on twitter. It will be a picture of me in my normal clothes, me in the other person’s clothes, and them in their clothes. It could be norm clothes, undergarments, sleepwear -whatever everyone involved is comfortable with (remembering that it will be going on the internet). So… If anyone in Grinnell wants to help me with this that would be great.

Also, for those both here in Grinnell and elsewhere, the project is open to participation from others. So if you feel like it, take pics like described above (you in your clothes, you in someone else’s clothes, other person in their clothes) and tweet with the hashtag #AnothersSkin (unless someone has a better idea). You can also tweet to @anothersskin.

The project wil be critiqued next Monday or Wednesday, so it would be appreciated if you could help out by then, but feel free to do so later if you feel like it.


booty had me like

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.

We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”

I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”

He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

hahahahha aw, that kind of sucks that the dude didn’t let him do it. I get retail rules, but that could have been really great for some kids.
