I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

Peacock-inspired coord to watch Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno with friends. I was going to dig out one of my yukatas and make it work somehow, but then at the last moment, I decided to wear something more comfortable. Pinning an ankle length robe to the proper length is frustrating.
- skirt - Bodyline l325
- OP/blouse thing - misc offbrand
- peacock necklace - unarosa (despite my best efforts, my bag zipper ate a feather which I had to reattach later on)
- blue rose clips - ToxicKitty
- tights - City Lady (local brand)
- shoes - Kenneth Cole Reaction
- wig - Sathura
- all else offbrand
This (for simplicity’s sake, let’s call it an OP) has room for poof at the bottom and nice details, but the waistline was very low for lolita. So I cheated, and wrapped a belt around the ribbon detail at the waist. Problem kind-of-solved, good enough for me.
I am at a loss as to how to tag entries like this; it doesn’t exactly fall under ‘classic’ or ‘gothic’, so since it mixes up my non-loli specific clothes I will tag it under ‘casual’ for now.
Wow, that is a beautiful coord. I love it!
HOW THE MOKIN CHILDREN ARE ABLE TO SEE WITH AMAZING CLARITY UNDERWATER
The Mokin are a group in Thailand that are nomadic and have a sea-based culture.
In the sea there is less light, so usually one’s iris will dilate. But the Mokin have an adaption where instead of dilating, they constrict as much as possible.
This allows them to see with much better clarity. Recent studies suggest that any child can quickly learn this trick. It exemplifies how well our brain adapts to our environment.
