This is a virtual hug, spread it to those who need it most!
THIS IS THE CUTEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN

Kitty. That’s rude. Trying to work here.
By the way, meet Fox everybody!
That’s Fox ‘Spooky’ Mulder. Don’t judge me, I really love the X Files.
Reblogging this not only for artists but also for people who write werewolf (and other animal transformation) fiction. If a human turned into a wolf, their knee joints would not reverse— what some fic writers mistake for the knee is actually the ankle. A wolf’s hind feet are relatively long, and they are always walking in way roughly analogous to human “tip-toeing.”
I cannot believe Curvy Kate’s audacity to outright steal the work of a high school student for some insipid marketing message.
Shame on you, Curvy Kate. Shame on you.

SIGNAL BOOST RIP THEM A NEW ONE TUMBLR!
IT’S NOT EVEN A THING YOU SHOULD MARKET
NOT ONLY DID YOU STEAL THE GIRL’S WORK
YOU FUCKING HAD NO IDEA WHAT SHE WAS TRYING TO SAY
THEY COMPLETELY RUINED HER MESSAGE AND TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN. WHAT THE FUCK. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I’M SO FUCKING MAD
Except the idea of marking skirt length with personality attributes isn’t unique to either of them.
This is a set of tights made and first sold in 2010 http://www.thefashionpolice.net/2010/06/what-does-your-skirt-length-say-about-you-these-tights-have-the-answer.html
As much as I hate art theft and plagiarism, I would like to remind people that you can not copyright an idea. Only the unique expression of an idea. Both the Curvy Kate and Rosea Posey skirt length=statement about your images are both unique and different takes on the same idea with different intents and messages behind them.
Book of Life is in Cinemas in the US from today (Oct 17th)
The art book is already available from Amazon and from what I hear it’s FANTASTIC
My plea to you is this.
Do not ignore this movie.
Make this thing EXPLODE on it’s opening weekend.
If you have ever complained about the lack of non-white main characters in animated movies, PAY TO WATCH THIS
If you reblog protesting posts about animated fairy tales only focusing on european and caucassian folklore, PAY TO WATCH THIS
If you are sick of seeing movies intended for children handed to people like Michael Bay, PAY TO WATCH THIS
If you have been reposting cultural appropriation posts about Dia de los Muertos and want to support representation of the richness of Mexican culture in regards to it’s celebrations from people who are actually part of it, PAY TO WATCH THIS
If you give one shit about animation as a medium, if you think it should be treated better at award ceremonies and given the same attention and respect as live action films, PAY TO WATCH THIS
The film industry only understands one thing. YOUR MONEY.
They do not give two shits about your posts on tumblr or your petitions or your beautiful fanart. If you do not throw your money at cinemas to see this film the movie industry and distributors will see this movie as a FAILURE. It doesn’t matter how breathtaking the animation is, how glorious the design is, how good the story or cultural accuracy is, THEY WILL SEE IT AS A FAILURE.
AND WHETHER OR NOT THIS MOVIE TURNS OUT TO BE GOOD, IT DOES NOT MATTER. The spirit and message of this movie is important. It’s made by people who love the culture they came from and want to share it with the world. It may not be perfect, I’ve heard the story is a little lacking, but no experiment is perfect on it’s first try. Even if it’s not perfect showing it your support WITH YOUR WALLET is an indicator for Hollywood to keep trying this concept. To give new things a chance. Not just stick with what has made them money in the past.
And if this does well they get the chance to make things BETTER.
My friends, Frozen and Lego Movie were huge hits and you guys were part of making that happen. This film deserves that same chance.
Spread the word. Buy your tickets and get bums in seats for this. Take your families, your kids, your nieces and nephews, your friends. Demand it at your local cinemas. Make the trip to see it at your nearest cineplex. 3D or 2D EITHER IS FINE. Hell if you REALLY can’t see it yourself for whatever reason PROMOTE IT TO OTHERS.
Even if you hate it, even if you think it’s stupid, even if you don’t like CGI. How well this movie does in the USA matters BIG time.. You are one of the biggest movie going nations in the world, your support of this film can make it BIG. In the Uk we’re not getting this for another week and by then it won’t matter how well it does over here. The film industry only really cares about US ratings and how much money it made in the US.
Give this movie the chance to make a change in the industry.
