the other disconcerting thought is that the terracotta warriors used to be painted, just like the Greek and Roman statues, but the paint is long gone giving them this classic earthenware look and sparing us from the horror of exactly how tasteless the originals might have been.
this is the absolute worst.
looking at unpainted terracotta warriors: Awe inspiring. A wonder of the world. Gazing upon row after row of loyal automatons, one might know what it feels like to be a god.

Princess Jupiter’s dress is even more ornate than Venus’, and that’s saying something!
The most striking aspect of Jupiter’s gown is how incredibly feminine it is. Gauze, ribbons, and roses are everywhere, and the dress itself is rather revealing; none of the other princess gowns have a slit like that. Of course, all of this ties back into Mako’s personality. Of all of the Senshi, she struggled with her femininity the most; more than anything, she yearned to be as pretty and girly as the rest of her friends and classmates, but felt that she was too masculine and awkward to pull it off. Over the course of the series, she gradually grows into herself and becomes much more comfortable with exploring her femininity, and the end result is this gown. In addition, the ruffles of Jupiter’s dress somewhat resemble leaves, furthering her association with nature.
As for the color, green is the essence of nature. Green represents growth, abundance, and vitality. It’s a color that is associated with natural life and represents renewal, growth, health, spring, generosity, fertility, and vigor. It also has connotations with balance, endurance, hope, stability, and safety. All of these concepts tie back into Mako herself, both personality-wise (her generosity towards her friends and how she represents stability and safety to them, for example) and to her life (like the renewal of life she experienced after she became a Senshi).
I would like to understand why people are still putting concealer around their eyebrows when there’s nothing to conceal. Why are you packing on more shit to wash off than necessary to look nice? Like i can support a full face of makeup but i don’t understand this
Bees choose to live in the box where they know damn well that a large fraction of the honey will periodically be removed, instead of simply leaving that place like they are perfectly able to do, because the human box comes with an invulnerable titan to guard them against all threats. The bees consider the payment offered to this colossal mercenary to be a pretty good deal.
