sincerely love hats
Being silly in my knit turbanish hat. I think I need more turban-like hats in my collection, they’re such an elegant shape.
I know I can do it with scarfs too but I have a big-ass head and when I wrap a scarf around my head and tie it I generally look like I’ve suffered a terrible head wound and have swaddled my head.
Hi, I’m Pug, and I am a character design artist.
I made these mini reference drawings for any future Lion King art I may want to do later on. Feel free to use this as a reference, as well. :)
@DeviantArt [x]oh my GOD
please someone, make a remake of the lion king with them |D
AHH SO LOVELY
these are fantastic
Nala’s makeup = makeup inspiration for some summer party or whatever. But also, beautiful character design is always inspirational. Silhouettes! Colors! Pattern!
Yes, I take fashion cues from cartoon characters on occasion. Explains a lot, don’t it?
An outfit from a party a few months ago. Another pair of harem pants that also converts into a romper (as worn here). I wish I’d posed better but I was sweaty and hungry. Not the most flattering picture of me.
The hat and romper are from Mallorca, a gift from my mom. The shoes are gold with little white crane appliques on them. The necklace is from Colombia, a gift from my grandmother.
Is that a Raja Gemini inspired necklace? I THINK IT IS.
This is so fabulous.
Sunday is Facial Funday!
In college I figured out a good skincare routine for myself (which will probably continue to evolve as I grow older and more responsible about taking off makeup at night). I found that exfoliating too much made me break out (and it seems like practically every other face-wash insists on being exfoliating) and everything that was supposed to help with oily skin just made my skin react with becoming even oilier. So I went back to the drawing board, looked up some different ways to cleanse one’s skin, and developed my own routine. Part of that routine is putting on a mud mask, once a week, both as a personal bit of relaxation and to help dry and clean out acne breakouts without irritating my skin into oil overproduction. I like Villainess products, so I’ve been using different Villainess masks for years (their powdered form means a little can go a long way, they smell divine because of the natural ingredients in them, and they’re shelf-stable without a lot of preservatives or complex chemicals). This particular variety is their Blush Mud, which has unfortunately been discontinued (I stocked up), but if I recall correctly, the Crushed Mud is somewhat similar in composition. I also love the Dulces En Fuego Mud which smells so good I practically want to eat it, but can be a little intense on the skin (it can turn your face a little red from the spices).
Time to wash it off! More on my skincare routine another time.
Isotope Titanium Lume Ring
The Isotope is all about contrast. The brilliant glow of the lume, and the sharp lines of the titanium create a visual moment that refuses to be ignored.
The special lume material in the Isotope ring soaks up both natural and artificial light and will glow bright green as soon as it is in a low-light environment. Wear it to bed and it will still be glowing when you get up for that 3am visit to the bathroom!
Moonglow is a ultra-high output photoluminesent polycarbonate. It soaks up both natural and artificial light and will glow bright green for hours once it is in a low-light environment. It also a passive-lume material, meaning it absorbs light. It does not generate its own light as radioactive materials such as tritium do.
someone propose to me with this and i’ll say yes.
This outfit began as me wanting to wear the neckpiece, so that was my inspiration/starting-point. At first I chose a long-sleeved shift (a new fabulous one) but the temperature proved too warm. I switched to this easy babydoll dress, added the shorts to make it more modest/warm for school, and the hat was a no-brainer match to the dress.
The neckpiece was a gift from my grandmother; it’s marked as an Elsa Cohen Exclusive Design. It’s a little hard to style because it looks like a mop sometimes, but I love its quirky earthiness - it reminds me of slices of lotus root.
Can we just take a moment to bask in the glory of Machiko Soga and her penchant for magnificent headpieces?
WHat were these in? Well, not the very first one. But the others!
I dont know the others because I haven’t gone back that far, but the last one is Magiel from Magiranger.
The middle ones are Denziman and Sun Vulcan, bottom left is Maskman.
No, I don’t know what the bottom left one is, but that’s not her Maskman appearance which incidentally was both magnificent and the highlight of the entire series.
And yes, her Maskman appearance involved amazingly ridiculous headgear.
(I’m honestly not sure I’d recognize her with a bare head.)
Wikipedia tells me bottom left is from Jikuu Senshi Spielban (it says on the screen that the character’s name is Queen Pandora)
FASHION ICON FOR OBVS REASONS.
I’ve been very inspired recently with old masters paintings: Vermeer, The Frick, and simplifying my beauty routine. When Chelsa & I discussed this we loved the idea of forgoing the dramatic eye and focusing only on a strong lip. No mascara! How fresh it looks to me; now her eyes remind me of all those souls in the beautiful paintings I’ve been lost in recently…learn how to get her look here!
Another outfit post yay! I wore this outfit because I had a crappy night prior and wanted to feel light, ethereal, and pretty. The skirt, I’m surprised to say, is about ten years old now. It was always this ragged. Because of an offhand snarky comment, I refer to it as my “ballerina who was mauled by a bear” skirt. The vest is possibly that old ok. The brooch on the vest and the boots were acquired much more recently (within the past six to nine months) - the brooch was a birthday gift from an aunt. The hat is thrifted; I think of it as my hippie hat. Basically, this was me dressing to feel like a woodland nymph or fairy. Appropriately, the shirt is printed with an image of the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, another character that inhabits that in-between place between mundane and mystic.
This is a peek into how my brain works when I pick out an outfit. Generally, though, it’s more of a color/shape intuitive process. This just got verbose.

Sansa needs to be in more editorials. She’s serving up postmodern renaissance beauty.
Flawless. I want to be her.
Also, I covet that beautiful headpiece.
