Hello! My name is Elizabeth, my friends call me Mitzy. I was born with an under bite and over time it’s grown worse with age. As I got older my jaw also caused me to develope TMJ. My jaw locks and pops several times a day and it’s only getting worse and more painful. My jaw is my biggest insecurity. I refuse to take pictures of my profile and I absolutely hate my smile. My friends have always supported me and suggested I do a donation to help raise the funds to help me correct it, but I could never bring myself to do it knowing so many other people also suffer from this same issue. But, I’ve finally decided to ask for the help required to have the work done to correct my jaw structure. My family has never been able to afford braces or correctional surgery and I’m hoping with the kindness and help from other’s that I’ll be able to make my biggest dream come true.
Mitzy has been my close friend and partner-in-cosplaying since day one. She receives alot of “You’re beautiful the way you are”s, but that can only go so far. Your own self-image is still your own and no one else can change that… I would do most anything to see the day she could really love her own image.
Any and all help would mean the world. <3

How cool is it that when you take all the cells out of an organ it still looks like an organ?
I remember when I was in high school and still very confused about how tissues worked, because all anyone taught me was that we’re made up of piles of cells hung on bones. But that’s not how it is! Cells build themselves little hammocks of polymer and densely branched glycoproteins; we’re like onions, layers of membrane over tough rubbery collagen, huge protein scaffolds cradling slippery organs.
Bodies are not made of cells — bodies are made by cells.

been waiting for 5 days to reblog this because spoilers
If you get a note like this from this guy, ignore it. Delete it. If you ask what his daughter likes, he’ll try sending you a very suspicious folder with random art in it, as well as a virus.
Please spread this around because someone who doesn’t know any better can really wind up getting screwed over. Thank you!
WHO IS THAT GIRL?!!
I think it’s Thor’s daughter in the future….. Maybe?
Its supposed to be Sigyn, the Goddess of Fidelity who, in norse mythology, is a beautiful blond woman who is Loki’s faithful wife. In the marvel universe, because she is in the comics a bit, She was meant to marry another warrior named Theoric, but Loki wanted her very much so he killed Theoric in the forest, disguised himself as the warrior and married Sigyn. When the truth came out, Odin wanted to punish Loki and Annul the marriage, but Sigyn remained loyal and so they were allowed to be together and she earned her title as Goddess of Fidelity.
She is always loyal to him, even when he pushes her away. The only myth that really includes her is when Loki is being punished by being tied down under a snake that drops poison from its fangs onto Loki, but Sigyn sits beside him and catches the poison in a bowl to save her husband who she loves.
Im 99.8% sure thats who the girl in this comic is supposed to be.
Since the source for this post is hard to find.(You have to go a ways back.) -Here’s the artist who drew this:
I will always reblog things like this, it won’t ruin your blog or the look of it, and this could potentially save a life.
I’m sorry this is not SNK related but..
This really upsets me. Please spread this around & it could save someone.
It doesn’t matter what type of blog you have, SNK, RT or whatever. Please reblog this, it could save many girls and guys.
ART THEFT ALERT
A couple of guys in the Philippines who go by Kidlat Tee Factory produced and sold a limited quantity of T-shirts in October with my Daruma painting on them, my original signature removed and ironically smothered with their own watermark.
You can see my original here.
I sent them a message on FB this afternoon telling them to take the images down and for compensation for all sales, but have not heard back yet. I reported the infringement to facebook but in facebook’s so very “special” way of handling things, they simply deleted one of the photos from Kidlat’s page and the rest remain. Great resolution, facebook!
At this point I am getting help with going after them for damages in the event that they don’t respond, but in the meantime I ask you guys, if you are willing, to share this, get the word out that they use unauthorized work and to see if you recognize any other designs as belonging to other artists. Feel free to let them know what you think of their policies regarding the sales of other artists’ work as well, but don’t resort to threats, name-calling or other nasty stuff. It’s fine to be angry but we’re not douchebags and the story is still unfolding.
I rarely come to the internet asking for favors and often I champion those who have had their creations ripped off. If you can spare the time, please help me out on this one.
I will post any updates as they happen and will be happy to clear their name if we come to a peaceful, fair resolve and that this is just some misunderstanding.
EDIT: I tracked down the source image for this ad on their page.
I contacted the artist and am waiting to hear back if they authorized use of that character to Kidlat. While it’s entirely possible it’s legit, finding two swiped pieces of art with original watermarks removed/replaced doesn’t bode well for the company’s integrity and intentions.
