I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
IT GOT BETTER THAN IT ALREADY WAS
Okay, you know how hard it is to make those side characters in your writing? There is a website that allows you to create different random identities for all types of characters.
This website literally generates an identity for a fictitious person and makes up the full name of the person, address, maiden name, birthday, blood type, weight, height… and they give it personality - favorite color, website, vehicle, job/occupation, company…
This site is literally amazing if you want to create a random character but you don’t know what to name him/her or you don’t know how to portray them.
You just enter the gender, name set, and the country and hit generate. That’s it. (And yes, you can have Hobbit, Klingon, and Ninja names.)
Here are a few examples:
okay, I hope this helps someone! :) I know it helped me…
The skull of the Chinese Water Deer is one of the most iconic skulls out there.
Like many small Asian deer species, it does not have antlers. Instead the males fight each other with their extremely sharp tusks, slashing at rivals with downward head swings.
When not actively shanking others, the tusks can be folded back slightly., so they don’t interfere with eating.
AAAH HOLY CRAP THIS IS SO COOOOOOL!
Also since Banjo’s big ‘ol teef are from his Chinese Water Deer heritage, I’m TOTALLY making them movable now! THIS IS SO RAD GEEZ WOW GUYS CANT WAIT TO DRAW THISSS
Okay, this exists, so no one has an excuse to put a dog nose on everything anymore.
DEAR GOD please everyone use this. Changing the nose is one of the easiest ways to make an animal look like the species it’s supposed to be. Very important.
I’M TWENTY YEARS OLD AND I STILL LOSE MY SHIT AT THIS EVERY GODDAMN TIME
