Here’s a “life-hack” for you.Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”Nope.It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.That rich red is only one application too.Plus it smells great, lol.So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.

WELL THEN!

this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*

A Selk’nam couple with their baby, on a ship en route to be exhibited in Europe as “wildmen”. The Selk’nam people are an indigenous tribe in the Patagonian region of Southern Argentina and Chile. Both appear to have slight damage on their ankles from cruel, probably iron, restraints. 
The fear and confusion on their face is haunting. For people who had lived a simple hunting and gathering lifestyle, with little European interaction, the rest of their lives must’ve seemed like a surreal nightmare.

If you haven’t seen the trailer of Jerrold Tarog’s “Heneral Luna,” and you’re a Philippine history enthusiast, please do. It may perhaps be one of the films set in the Philippine-American War that we could be proud of. We only have a few films set in that historical period, and not that many people know of the Philippine-American War. The film is set to be released in 2015. The quality of the film is seamless, and because it’s a Jerrold Tarog film, I’m expecting a down-to-earth treatment to the historical figures. His film Sana Dati is a favorite. 

When I saw the photos of the cast of Heneral Luna on Facebook, I couldn’t help but gasp at some of the actors’ portrayal of their character. To show you what I mean, I took the photos of the cast and put it side by side with the actual photos of the historical figures they portrayed. (I hope the director won’t mind). Look, and be amazed!!! 

(1) John Arcilla as General Antonio Luna

(2) Epy Quizon as Apolinario Mabini

—> This so far is my favorite. From the dress down to the chair he is sitting at, Epy Quizon is perfect for the Mabini role. 

(3) Paolo Avelino as  General Gregorio del Pilar

(4) Mon Confiado as President Emilio Aguinaldo

(5) Nonie Buencamino as Felipe Buencamino 

(6) Joem Bascon as Colonel Francisco “Paco” Roman

(7) Alex Medina as Captain Jose Bernal

(8) Leo Martinez as Pedro Paterno

(9) Ketchup Eusebio as Captain Pedro Janolino

(10) Lorenz Martinez as General Tomas Mascardo

(LEFT photos are from the "Heneral Luna" Facebook Fanpage. RIGHT photos are historical photos from various sources. Photos belong to their respective owners).
