Dragon scales… think about it, there are insects that imitate leaves to avoid predators. What about having forest dragons with scales and colour patterns that make them look like a pile of fallen leaves to better hide themselves from their prey?

YES GOOD

See also: aquatic dragons (like sea snakes - air-breathing but spend their whole lives in water aside from egg-laying) that augment the barnacles and algae growing on their scales with anemones and coral, like the decorator crab and similar species:

OMG THAT IS AN AWESOME IDEA.

Also, yes I play flight rising (Mythonis. id 40330). And I have an FR blog. I also have five nests incubating and will have baby dragons soon, do you want baby dragons? (parents are Mango x Dinah, Lulau x Titan, Cabernet x China, Adric x Dunes, and Cinnamon x Gargoyle)

I should try drawing some dragons covered in anemones for tablet/Sai practice. (And if you draw any leaf-mimic dragons I demand to seeeee.)

I literally JUST started playing FR this week (Catspit, id 46550), so sure! I’ve been neurotically stalking the auctions and have a decent set of pattern genes to work with once my dragons grow up, but I’m lacking in some color genes (reds/oranges/greens) and don’t have all the breeds yet. (I can’t breed either for several weeks, but I’ve got a Wildclaw male with Clown + Eye Spots and a Guardian male with Circuit, so both of those could produce some pretty babies if you want any when they time comes. :3)

at 5am you either feel like you can rule the world or like you’ve just been run over by a truck there is no inbetween

"Your too fat."

"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

"Cosplay to your size!"

"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3

Commonly confused medieval weapons, a powerpoint by me.

Now stop screwing them up, seriously, or I will put a medieval weapon in your head.

Tumblr is endearing me to being lectured at in Comic Sans

THIS is a WAR SCYTHE, a scythe actually used in combat. Notice it is not a useless piece of shit and is an actual functional weapon.

The only reason why death is pictured with a FARMING scythe is because he harvests souls.

now i can kill ppl and know what im killing them with thank you

Also, while halberds are not spears, both spears and halberds are polearms. If you take a weapon-y thing and put it on the end of a long stick, that’s a polearm, because it’s arms on a pole. Really creative terminology isn’t it?

I don’t. I don’t want anybody else to touch you. I’m silly. I get furious if they touch you.

if someone tells you about something horrible youre doing to them and your response is “its ok i hate myself too” thats not a damn apology. youre just guilting them into feeling bad for you. stop

0 tolerance for this kind of emotionally manipulative bullshit

Stinging Nettle Slug Caterpillar (Cup Moth, Setora sp., Limacodidae)  Cup Moth larvae are often highly ornamented and brightly colored. Two main types can be distinguished: larvae armed with rows of protuberances bearing stinging spines called nettle caterpillars, or non-spined forms where the surface of the larvae may by completely smooth, called gelatine caterpillars. The larvae of this family bear no prolegs on their abdominal segments. The larva attaches itself to the substrate by means of an adhesive ventral surface. The movement is like a slug hence their generic name.  A stinging slug caterpillar (like this one) generally bears warning colouration and stinging hairs. These hairs can inject a venom from poison sacs carried at their base that are used as defensive weapons. Reactions can range from a mild itching to a very painful sting.   by Sinobug (itchydogimages) on Flickr.
