10 Things I ♥ in May

10 Things I love in May 2017

  1. Lost in Austen. My historical dancing club is having a costume-if-you-want-to dance to commemorate Jane Austen’s 200th death’s anniversary and I needed some inspiration which is why I finally got around watching this Pride and Prejudice, eh, adaption. It’s an adorable four-part miniseries, with unexpected depth for all characters and my much-beloved “fish out of temporal water” trope. Now I want a George Wickham spin-off (because he’s the best character in the whole thing). And I also decided that Regency garb just isn’t my cup of tea.
  2. Azalea Doll’s Pretty Pixie dress-up. I mean, look at those adorable outfit options!
  3. Yuri on Ice. I’m not exactly on the hype train, but I just don’t get hypes, anyway. I however found it cute enough to watch and include in this list here! The anime makes me regret not going skating this winter! Although I was always more of an ice hockey person I loved watching figure skating with my grandparents when I was little and this reminded me of those days, too.
  4. Leyla Acaroglu’s Paper beats Plastic? TED talk. She’s witty, she’s funny and she’s so right with her design rant. I still prefer paper to plastic, though, just for the feeling and look (and also the renewable resources, although cutting down forests isn’t really necessary…).
  5. Grüne Soße, a traditional dish made of a defined set of herbs and greens mixed with dairy products, mustard and boiled eggs. A must-eat around eastertide in Germany (and so yummy).
  6. Playing at the Wunderkammer Chronicles. It feels so good to GM again even if it’s “only” via forum. Watching a self-spun world come alive is such a magical feeling.
  7. We finally have potted herbs for sale at work. They’re so pretty and smell so nice and I always hope they thrive and grow in their new homes when I sell them.
  8. Our new Pathfinder campaign. So far it’s a lovely slice of live adventure with some supernatural occurrences thrown in but I’m sure it’ll go wild soon enough. I love the character dynamics, too. Grohm is a no-nonsense medic from humble origins who hates it when people sing or hum and is suddenly confronted with the reality of having hidden magical powers while Allouèt is an extremely genki bard and history nerd with a crush on a long-dead revolutionary and basically a Disney princess (complete with a tame thrush and random singing, much to Grohm’s chagrin), always going out of her way to brighten someone’s life. Throw in Scoundrel’s diverse and partially adorable cast of NPCs and plot-writing obsession. Done.
  9. Magpieb0nes on DeviantArt. They make the most beautiful animal masks, and they do it especially for LARP purposes, too. I’m especially enamoured with the hare (left), of course but this taur is really impressive, too (there are so few well-done partly animal characters at LARP) and I love the treeface masks!
  10. This Sweather-Wearing Ferret pin in white | brown by Oh Jessica Jessica on Etsy. It’s just so vintagely adorable.
