Natalia Osipova in Coppelia
When I was looking around for an Avengers fancast I saw, I ran across Torchmywood’s idea for a Vietnamese version of Tangled, because the lantern festival looks very similar to Tết Trung Thu and other Asian traditions. Hopefully I didn’t make any huge huge mistakes.
It’s also inspired by a little mostly-Vietnamese girl I know who is frustrated right now because she can’t find a doll that looks like her. She has curly hair and wears pigtails, so that’s why I deviated from most of the photos I saw that way.
It’s also messier than what I normally do because A)I’m getting really sick of being the slowest fanartist on Tumblr, and B) I think if you spend longer than a day on a picture of somebody else’s kid drawn as an adult, they can arrest you.
If it were up to me, Emma would wear cigarette pants and a tuxedo jacket and a real actual corset (to keep that overtly sexy element without needing a weird lace-up belly shirt).
I wish more X-men artists would draw Emma like this instead of in the stupid Hellfire corset and panties because this is perfect and exactly what I see Emma wearing on an every day basis.
Wire Bonsai by Ken To
Bonsai is a reflective art, but you could almost see yourself in the delicately wrapped copper wire that Ken uses to cnstruct his miniature bonsai sculptures, which are available to purchase at his rondei.
You can also get variations of these which have tiny little ‘waste’ gemstone fragments stuck to create the leaves of the trees. They are beautiful, and we have several of them.
Oh wow… want.
Spencer Finch - 366, Emily Dickinson’s Miraculous Year (2009)
This work is based on Emily Dickinson in 1862, when she wrote 366 poems in 365 days. It is a real-time memorial to that year, which burns for exactly one year. The sculpture is comprised of 366 individual candles arranged in a linear sequence, each of which burns for 24 hours. The colour of each candle matches a colour mentioned in the corresponding poem. For the poems in which no colour is mentioned, the candles are made out of natural paraffin.
