…and we’d like to (but all your friends are dead, Marius)
Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina, 2012
when ppl defend the hypersexualization of female characters by acting like they r sentient real ppl who make their own choices instead of being written and drawn by gross men
AU in which all the amis are left-handed. (And the phrase “we’re the only barricade left” has a very different and much less fatalistic meaning.)
#Bossuet manages to injure himself at least once a year working on right-handed tools#Jean Prouvaire’s hand is always smudged from the ink and graphite that he writes with#Enjolras has started several petitions to have left-handed gear along with right-handed at equal prices#instead of only at specialty stores#Ask Combeferre about polar bears. I dare you#Joly enjoys being in his right mind#Feuilly is ambidextrious and enjoys it#R can tell you about the terms used around the world and resents and relishes sinister in equal measure#Bahorel usually fights right-handed#you know if he considers you a serious opponent if he switches his stance to focus on his left#Courfeyrac definitely celebrates left hander’s day and has a large pile of paraphanalia for such#Marius was born left handed but was brought up to be right handed#there may be some trauma there but are we even surprised by now
In which Les Amis teach us that being Good and being Right is not the same.
NTLIVE FRANKENSTEIN AND CREATURE COSPLAY REFS AND HELP!
Ben was requested for both I think. Either way the costumes are the same, the only difference between the actors is that Ben’s hair is ginger and that Johnny is wearing a brown wig.
SHIRT: Simple large dark grey, puffy sleeved long sleeved shirt. It appears to button up at the front, but he never has it done up. Torn in various areas. Depending on which version of the creature you cosplay, Ben has his tucked in and Johnny does not.
Shirt has a bit of a collar. Definitely seen better days. You will probably have to make this so make sure its something linen or of the period. Loose but breathable. You do want a bit of chest showing because scars~
Shirt has cuffs to btw.
PANTS: They appear to button up at the front, which means they are probably broadfall breeches. You undo the buttons and the flap at the front drops down, allowing for easy access to….well you know. They are a dark, navy grey sort of colour. They’ve seen better days. The buttons match the colour of the pants and the ends are folded up.
JACKET + SHIRT: Both green. One dark, one lighter. The jacket is dark green and checked. It has a collar and large pointy lapels. both shirt and jacket have fabric covered buttons. Both are not done up, so that full chest/torso scar is revealed~
Pants with this outfit are the same as before. You can pop the collar of the shirt up too btw~
FACE/SCARS: Lots of them! Nice one across the chest, a few on each hand and foot. The rest all over the face, Stitched with stitches and metal clamps of some sort. Lots of sooted areas and raised red rashy areas. Bruises too.
Mixture of black curly hair and tufts of ginger. You will probably need a bald cap though. Unless you are already bald…
COAT/SHIRT/PANTS: Long black coat, pockets on each side. 6 buttons. Large lapels. Collar. Button on each cuff. White puffy shirt with large collar and sleeves longer than the coat. Button up, herringbone? patterned pants. Broadfall breech style as well, but a lot nicer. Buttons are hidden.
Pants tucked into long leather, black boots. Victors gloves are eerily similar to Sherlocks. if they are not the same ones.
Pants may have to be made unless you can find similiar ones in a charity store or elsewhere. You might be able to find a top and coat like his in the same places. Or try ebay. Or make them too.
SNOWY/WINTERY CLOTHES: Warm brown pants of some sort. Heavy, woollen? Greeny coat with fur hood, fur collar, fur cuffs. Matching gloves. Everything covered in frost and snow. Look pale and sickly in this. With maybe a dribble of wine coming from your mouth.
Fur can be brought at fabric/craft stores. Fake fur.
GREY FUR CLOAK: Knitted? Mix of grey and black. Black fluffy fur collar. Silver clasp.
You’ll have to make nice but it should be easy enough. You can buy fake fur and probably a clasp at a fabric/craft store.
HAIR: If Ben’s Victor than GINGER AND SIDE BURNS AND CURLS OH MY. If Johnny’s, similar but in brown. Try to look really up yourself the whole time.
HOPE THAT HELPS
