How can I not reblog something that contains the word “lemonling.”
So my mom just yelled at me for 5 minutes because I in her words ” overreacted" when my cat stepped on my watercolor painting. My paintings are due in a week and they will be critiqued by basically the whole art department. Fun fact the department will decide if I stay in my major or not based on my work….so yeah I may get a bit bitchy if you mess my paintings.
"Tiana’s concept art is so gorgeous. It’s funny that Disney didn’t put more effort into her hair when they were so proud of their work on Rapunzel and Merida’s hair…I’d wonder why but it’s probably the same reason that the one black princess is the princess that’s a frog for 85% of the movie"
So, you think that Disney is racist, and are so racist that they think that black people can’t have loose hair? Uh, no. Rapunzel’s hair is a HUGE part of her story and character development, of course they’d work hard on that. Merida’s hair was a huge factor of her in the advertisements, and is kind of a metaphor for her wild personality. As for Tiana, I doubt, I so highly doubt that her hair is up for most of the movie because Disney is racist. Tiana keeping her hair up shows her personality too, her hard-working personality, as it shows that she doesn’t want loose hair in her eyes or hair falling in her food when she cooks. And also, Merida and Rapunzel are CGI, and CGI hair usually has way more detail than 2D hair.
Finally, I still get annoyed when people hate on how Tiana is a frog for most of the movie. I honestly don’t see the racism in that, and I think it’s as good a story for their first black heroine as any.
Black hair (particularly black women’s hair) is stigmatized in Western society as dirty, or unkempt. Most ethnic styles of hair are frowned upon, such as Afros, twists, braids, puffs, and dreadlocks. This is subliminally carried into Princess and the Frog with the artists choosing (operative term) to keep Tiana’s hair back or up during her few minutes as a human on screen. There’s honestly no reason she could not have had her hair down, especially near the end.
And while computer animation can give you more details (one of the major pros of the medium), that doesn’t magic away the fact that the animators didn’t want to animate Tiana’s hair beyond a few bobs of her ponytail. Detail is not the issue here. Past Disney women whose hair also did not factor into the plots of their stories had very competently animated hair. And those were all hand-drawn.
So the medium has nothing to do with competent animation.
And I guess it’s good enough that the first black heroine (and only one as far as Disney is concerned) is not even human for nearly 85% of the her movie? Yeah, because that’s a respectful portrayal of a black woman: to have her be a frog for the majority of her film. And that’s especially memorable compared to her white counterparts whose screen time is never compromised and are able to keep their humanity throughout them.
INVISIBLE DIVERSITY IS NOT REAL DIVERSITY.
Tiana has the most lazily animated hair of any disney princess. It’s in a bun, it stays in the bun. No movement, no body whatsoever. Any disney heroine, period. And to suggest that that doesn’t have anything to do behind the stigma surrounding black hair then you aren’t paying attention.
OKAY LISTEN UP ERRYBODY
I decided I’m gonna do one of them giveaway things that are so hot on this site!
I’m giving away a Pearl Pink Nintendo 3DS!!!!! WOW!
I purchased it back in 2012 but I barely used it at all (it’s a tad scuffed but that’s actually from it just idly riding in my purse for nearly two years). So I decided that maybe it’ll find a loving home with someone else! (I’m more of a big console girl anyway)
As you can see everything is there - charger, instruction manual, the dock - which is not pictured but I do have it)…everything except for the original box because somewhere along the line I threw it away (OOPS). I’m also cleaning it up so it’ll be nice and shiny when I send it out!
As a bonus, I’ll throw in that copy of Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance and the accompanying strategy guide (DON’T JUDGE ME)!
Now, on to the RULES AND SHIT:
- Following? Well, it’s not necessarily mandatory, but very much appreciated (if you LIKE the odd hodgepodge of gaming, Disney and J/K-pop that ends up here)!
- Likes don’t count, only reblogs! And due to Tumblr’s limitations, only the first reblog will count!
- No giveaway blogs!!!!
- You have to be willing to give out your address should you win.. If you’re a minor I’ll need some kind of authorization from a parent/legal guardian so all our asses don’t get in trouble.
- I’ll ship anywhere in the WORLD! IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!
- The winner will be chosen with a random number generator. Once chosen, you have 72 hours (3 days) to respond to a message that will be left before I throw it out and a new winner is picked. YOUR ASKBOX MUST BE OPEN!!!!!
- If you only reblog the post to signal boost and you somehow get picked, let me know so I can choose another winner.
- Giveaway ends March 31!
Oh, and just so I don’t have higher-ups breathing down my neck: THIS GIVEAWAY IS IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH TUMBLR, NINTENDO, DISNEY, SQUARE ENIX, AND THE LIKE. YOUR INFORMATION WILL NOT BE DISTRIBUTED TO ANYONE BUT ME, MYSELF AND I.
many people are giving up on rise of the guardians. I just want to see how many of us are left…
