Reblogging because I want all of my followers to be aware of just how much you can do in Photoshop, and how little of what you see on posters, in magazines and of pictures on the internet etc. are necessarily real.
Imagine how the model feels, too. She was hired to be the most beautiful, but they still had to change her because her beauty wasn’t enough.
Not only is the general body distortion completely gross, but notice that they lighten her skin color. This is a white, blonde model, and they make her whiter. Actual white people aren’t even the ideal whiteness, so can you even imagine what models with dark skin have to endure in this industry?
so for all you girls that ask “Why can’t I look like the girls in magazines” it’s because the girls in magazines don’t even look like the girls in magazines.

Guess I’ll sound off on this whole 3DS thing too.
I do have my gripes despite being pretty nonchalant about the whole thing. First of all, the dual stick thing was something they should have done with the XL, not waiting for yet another hardware upgrade. Second, I think the naming is boring and is going to lead to marketing confusion (in the similar way that the Wii and Wii U simply weren’t very distinguishable). At least this time it’s an upgrade instead of a system generation, but still they could have at least gone with something a little more distinct like tagging an EX to the end. Actually, scratch that. “3DS-EX” would just be asking for trouble.
All that being said, I don’t really care about it as a whole. It takes that place in my mind where the DSi sits, which is that there isn’t enough to interest me. I already have a Circle Pad Pro for my XL that I’d prefer to use over fingering what appears to be a laptop nub, the other small features don’t draw me in much, and the single ‘exclusive’ they’ve announced so far is a port of something I already own. Even if I were interested, I don’t think that a single ported game is cause for so many people to get angry with Nintendo about not being able to afford a new handheld. Now if they actually managed to get a lot of interesting games on there, then I might be a little salty, but for now that seems to be premature.
TL;DR: There is no need to be upset… yet.
I’m going to admit that while I’m happy with the character reveal, I still felt like the trailer itself probably could have been better. Then again, thinking back on it Rosalina and WFT didn’t really have lengthy cinematic openings compared to some of the others, so it may just feel short given how much we’ve been spoiled by the more recent updates.
Hmm… I wish to read this week’s manga but my normal sites don’t have it up and mangareader has never worked for me. On the bright side, I found out that Viz Manga has an app with WSJ on it so that will be nice.
