“Many women, I think, resist feminism because it is an agony to be fully conscious of the brutal misogyny which permeates culture, society, and all personal relationships.”—Andrea Dworkin, Our Blood: Prophecies and Discourses on Sexual Politics (via staininyourbrain)
“Meanwhile, Usagi collapses for no reason. I think we’re supposed to believe that she tired herself out from running, because as we established earlier, she’s not affected by Zoisite’s plan at all in this continuity (more on that later). Luckily Tuxedo Mask is there to catch her and tell her that this is kind of his fault, and that he didn’t know how to get the Silver Crystal because he doesn’t have cool powers like they do. “Yeah I feel you, I’m the leader and I have stupid powers,” she says. “Speaking of which, where is everybody? I should probably be actually doing something rather than just standing here talking to you.” Just kidding! She does not say that last part, much to my eternal chagrin.”—Sailor Moon Crystal Recap, Act 6: “Tuxedo Mask” | The Mary Sue (via themarysue)
*sigh* She collapses because she takes all the energy Zoisite has stolen and gives it back to all of Tokyo. ALL OF TOKYO. This isn’t at all clear in the episode, but that’s what’s happening. Cite: the manga
So I just watched episode 6 of Sailor Moon Crystal, and wow, was that an awkward episode. It was just so disjointed and badly put together. I swear, no single shot lasted more than maybe 5 seconds tops, and the framing of the characters was really awkward. It was hard to figure out what exactly…
It’s like YAY ATTACK SCENES and YAY TUX PEP TALK and then it’s like WTF just happened???
It’s that time again where I talk too much. This time let’s discuss Princess Serenity’s famous dress which is well-known as an interpretation of the “Palladium” / “Il Palladio” dress in the Christian Dior, Haute Couture Spring/Summer 1992 collection. Here’s a very nice post by Moonie Trivia with detailed pics comparing them with the included inspiration, an Ionic column.
So what more is there to add, really?
Well, let’s take a little trip down history and fashion lane.
