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.”
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.
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*
You can mix the powdered stuff with water (no sugar) and use it to dye wool… just in case that might be of any use.
eightfootplatypus, this may be useful to you.
I’ve dyed my hair with koolaid in the past. It takes FOREVER to wash out, but it makes for great cheap dye if you don’t mind having whatever color hair for a while :) (Also, you smell like cotton candy for two days.)
so, if it’s that powerful a dye, could it turn my insides different colours too?

I think making your bf/gf a mixtape is the sweetest thing. It’s like “Here’s a bunch of songs I really like and I think you’d really like them too. They’ll tell you so much more about me than I could ever tell you.” That’s really special.
In the script, Solo’s response to Leia’s declaration of love for him was written as “I love you, too.” It’s now lore that Ford changed it to “I know.” But if you read the transcript of Ford’s conversation with Kershner on the set, you can see that Ford wasn’t just being a smartass. He put a lot of thought into that line. “But if she says, ‘I love you,’ and I say, ‘I know,’ it’s beautiful and it’s acceptable and it’s funny,” he pleaded. “The point is, I’m not worried about myself anymore; I’m worried about her.”
What a great explanation. As a kid I thought he was a total jerk for saying that….
I’ll be honest, anon, this one took me a while to answer because I’ve never been the best with the whole body positivity thing. I did come up with a few things, though.
My eyebrow game is always on point; I’ve never needed to go crazy with the tweezers or fill them in. Same with my eyes overall. I’m on the short side, and I do have a problem with carrying weight in my hips, but I’ve also got a pretty fantastic chest, so it evens out to a kind-of hourglass shape? Which is pretty awesome. And even though I’m short, my legs are like unproportionately long, and my butt is fabulous.
