an important factual presentation by me

All the facts.

Uh, actually… normally I’d agree with assessments like this but the leading theory is that Cleopatra was in fact Greek. She was a member of the Ptolemaic Dynasty which was a Greek royal family that ruled the Egyptian throne. Some historians even believe she had red hair.

Of course there are other theories as to her ethnicity but I see nothing wrong with portraying her as a white woman in media as it’s the most likely to be true from the evidence we have. On the other hand I also see nothing wrong with portraying her as another ethnicity since we have no proof that she was white or otherwise, among other reasons.

I NEED THIS WHAT

I have a mighty, mighty need

Sorry I’m going to be the mean old wet blanket for a minute.
The reason why this dress looks so amazing is the shape of the figure in the photo. It’s partially the way the model is standing (legs crossed so that her hip width and angle looks even more extreme and dramatic, very popular pose in fashion photos) and the fact that she’s likely wearing a corset or other shaper underneath. Otherwise the cut of the dress itself is rather simple. It wouldn’t look anything like that without such a dramatic hourglass shape… which no human being has naturally. It also looks like it might require double-sided tape to be held up at the bust.
It looks more like a fussy costume than a functional dress that I’d actually wear somewhere. As a seamstress I’d be more impressed if it was actually cut to give the wearer the illusion of such lines rather than requiring a very uncomfortable undergarment. It also needs more natural support in the bust or even some minimal straps.
tl;dr a) This dress wouldn’t look like this on ANYBODY unless you were wearing some extreme shapers and standing with your legs crossed constantly and b) it would be constantly falling down or threatening to expose you if you bend over slightly because the bust would have to be rigid.
Though I do love the fabric. Velvet gowns are a soft spot of mine.

Nah, I completely understand that, and honestly, I’d probably be going for it because of the fussy costume nature of the beast.  That’s mostly just me being contrary and insisting on impossible costumes, but if I had the right corset for underneath and lots of fashion tape, I would very much love to do a photoshoot in something like this.

Oh totally! This is a photoshoot dress, definitely. In fact I’m now kinda inspired to make a more functional version of this dress. I am in need of a proper gown since the only one I currently own is my wedding dress.
I’m thinking maybe a vertical gather at the waist and a bateau neckline with cap sleeves/straps. That would create a similar dramatic hourglass shape without the heavy cinchers and with far better support. I would also make the train modifiable so you can get it off the floor for easier movement. Or just get rid of it entirely.

"When presented with images of men, perceivers [men and women] tended to rely more on “global” cognitive processing, the mental method in which a person is perceived as a whole. Meanwhile, images of women were more often the subject of “local” cognitive processing, or the objectifying perception of something as an assemblage of its various parts.

“Local processing underlies the way we think about objects: houses, cars and so on. But global processing should prevent us from that when it comes to people,” Gervais said. “We don’t break people down to their parts – except when it comes to women, which is really striking. Women were perceived in the same ways that objects are viewed.”

“We always hear that women are reduced to their sexual body parts; you hear about examples in the media all the time. This research takes it a step further and finds that this perception spills over to everyday women, too,” Gervais said. “The subjects in the study’s images were everyday, ordinary men and women … the fact that people are looking at ordinary men and women and remembering women’s body parts better than their entire bodies was very interesting.”"

How our brains see men as people and women as body parts

Research that shows that men and women objectify women but not men.

the glorification of kurt cobain and demonization of courtney love is so discouraging but a reminder that if you’re a man and you’re an abrasive, provocative, drug-addled musician then you’re the voice of a generation but if you’re all of those things and a woman, you’re a junkie succubus

Sometimes jokes are a way of expressing pain

realsocialskills:

Sometimes people joke about things that scare them, or that are painful.

Someone laughing doesn’t necessarily mean that they think a topic is funny. It doesn’t necessarily mean that they take the topic lightly. It doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re ok.

Sometimes,…

Same guy! Hell yeah!

(Garrick Hagon, who played Biggs Darklighter in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, plays Abraham in Doctor Who Series 7 Episode 3, A Town Called Mercy)

He also played Ky in ‘The Mutants’ during the Third Doctor’s run in 1972. He’s one of a handful of actors who have done both Classic Who and New Who. Such an awesome guy!
