Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
Professional sculptor Stefanie Rocknak beat out 265 other artists from 42 states and 13 countries to create a sculpture honoring author and poet Edgar Allan Poe that will be displayed in Boston, Poe’s birthplace. A five-member artist selection committee decided on Rocknak’s stunning work that shows Poe with a suitcase in hand and a raven in front of him.
No wonder she won, holy butts, look at that majestic creature.
Poe looks pretty badass and epic here!
Look at this cosplayer!! I had such a hard time picking out only ten of these. Go! Look at the others!

There is how I made my Winter Soldier’s arm!
First, I’m sorry about my english, hope you’ll understand me :) Second, it was lame, cheap and very fast work, because I had no time, no money and couldn’t think in these last “deadline” days before…
30 Days of Cosplay - 25) The cosplay you put the most effort into
The Turks - Final Fantasy 7
Okay, sort of a cheating answer, but I consider them to be sort of one ‘unit’, and honestly, I probably put at least as much work into one suit as I have everything else I’ve done recently. These were based on a Vogue men’s suit pattern, but tailored for fit for each person. Fully lined jackets, welted outside and lining pockets, front and back pants pockets, properly attached canvas/hair interfacing - there’s a few flaws here and there (Elena’s wig was stuck at customs still, and back vents HOW DO THEY WORK) but these are, functionally, fully wearable and finished clothing.
This is an amazing group
