'Some Girls Are Just Born With Glitter In Their Veins'
I had so much fun teaching Glitter make-up skills & techniques at The School of Make-up based in Manchester, the school I will be teaching at over the next year.
Givenchy models brought a whole new meaning to radiant skin at Paris Fashion Week this year with their faces covered in Swarovski crystals & sequins! Created by my favourite make-up artist Pat McGrath.
(Apparently it took over 40 pairs of hands and 12 hours to create the design!)
I was so inspired by Pat McGrath design I took elements of the Givenchy look and re created my own glitter version with a galaxy optical illusion effect. I wanted it to look like the models skin was taken away and replaced with glitter. The SOM students & myself had so much fun with all that glitter, I am not too sure the model enjoyed washing all that glitter off at the end of the day though!
Keep a look out for more glitter creations I will be creating this year…
The Black Death arrived in Britain from central Asia in the autumn of 1348 and by late spring the following year it had killed six out of every 10 people in London. Such a rate of destruction would kill five million now. By extracting the DNA of the disease bacterium, Yersinia pestis, from the largest teeth in some of the skulls retrieved from the square, the scientists were able to compare the strain of bubonic plague preserved there with that which was recently responsible for killing 60 people in Madagascar. To their surprise, the 14th-century strain, the cause of the most lethal catastrophe in recorded history, was no more virulent than today’s disease. The DNA codes were an almost perfect match.
According to scientists working at Public Health England in Porton Down, for any plague to spread at such a pace it must have got into the lungs of victims who were malnourished and then been spread by coughs and sneezes. It was therefore a pneumonic plague rather than a bubonic plague. Infection was spread human to human, rather than by rat fleas that bit a sick person and then bit another victim. “As an explanation [rat fleas] for the Black Death in its own right, it simply isn’t good enough. It cannot spread fast enough from one household to the next to cause the huge number of cases that we saw during the Black Death epidemics,” said Dr Tim Brooks from Porton Down, who will put his theory in a Channel 4 documentary, Secret History: The Return of the Black Death, next Sunday.
To support his argument, Brooks has looked at what happened in Suffolk in 1906 when plague killed a family and then spread to a neighbour who had come to help. The culprit was pneumonic plague, which had settled in the lungs of the victims and was spread through infected breath.
The skeletons at Charterhouse Square reveal that the population of London was also in generally poor health when the disease struck. Crossrail’s archaeology contractor, Don Walker, and Jelena Bekvalacs of the Museum of London found evidence of rickets, anaemia, bad teeth and childhood malnutrition.

That one time Dean got into a fight with a pigeon and almost killed it.
Becket, this is Mako Mori.
But look how they perceived each other too. This memory isn’t an exact one (memories rarely are). Raleigh’s perception of Mako was very close up and she’s this stunning, slightly sad, closed off thing framed by her umbrella like a halo. She looks exquisite and unapproachable in a way. Mako’s perception of Raleigh has him looking far more serious and sad than he actually looked when they met. The camera angle zooms in like she was suddenly really taking in who this guy was and he looks forbidding and far more warrior like than he ever does in real life. If you notice, that one frame makes him look more like Stacker than any other moment in that movie. If that was her perception, something about Raleigh ALREADY reminded her of the level of command her father had and not only is she the only one in the movie who sees that, but we realize it’s an internal thing on Raleigh’s part because he doesn’t ACT like Stacker, but he sure has the same grit.
I so love when people see things I miss! When I saw these gifs together, my jaw dropped. They actually took the time to refilm their first meeting. Blows my mind how much thought they put into the drift sequences. I wish we could get a point by point explanation of each drift cause there is a lot in there we don’t understand.
one of my fave things is to go trough the dvd features and look at them talking about the drift sequences because there was a lot of thought put into them :) the small details used to build backstory and worlds in this movie is amazing
Remember Champ, the happiest dog in the world? His owner, Candice Sedighan, just shared with us a new series of photos she’s taken of the adorable dog and his new found friends. Recently, Candice ran into a man who was holding chicks in a box. “He asked me if I think any factories would want them, but I offered to take them instead so I could find them a safer home. I bought all the necessary supplies to keep them comfortable and healthy for a few days, and will be donating them to a local college’s teaching farm.” See more photos of Champ and his adventures via Instagram.
