so i took my little sister to her very first convention the other day, and she had a blast parading around as Astrid (though, i think her favourite part was hanging out with my friend who was dressed as Hiccup
she’s still waiting for her rsvp for that play date)
Anyway, while we were there, we ran into the ver talented froggiesandstrawberries and managed to get her to snap a few photos for our mom.
heres just a few of them <3
April 7, 1946: “Despite Cain’s stare, Queen Victoria hasn’t a hangover. The ‘icebag’ protects her elaborately carved crown,” The Times reported in the magazine. “Wonderful as are the works in the display galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art — one of the five or six great treasure houses of this world — a large part of the museum’s wonders is hidden from view in some forty storerooms, most of them underground,” wrote Charles Grutzner. Other pictures of some of the museum’s treasures sport innuendo-rife captions: “Bronze nudes and a marble Antigone share museum’s nether regions with a giant boar and undraped Venuses.” Photo: The New York Times
I read somewhere that sirens/mermaids sang songs that they heard from sailors on passing ships. I imagine this is what a modern siren would sound like singing this song.
