In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.
Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.
Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.
And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.
How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies
How don’t you
I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THIS SHOW FOR THE PAST SEVEN YEARS AND JUST NOW REALIZED THEYRE WEARING YOUNG AND OLD VERSIONS OF THE SAME OUTFIT
I was thinking about this like what if Madame Foster wished she was young again so she could do errands that aren’t easy for her in her old age, so she imagined Frankie.
STOP RIGHT THERE. NOT A SINGLE STEP CLOSER.
Average size mannequin with average size woman.
The problem, in one picture.
I never realized until seeing this picture that my interpretation of an average size woman has become REALLY SKEWED oh my god I wanna cry
Babe. She’s flawless.
Star Wars gowns at Rodarte Fall/Winter 2014
Fashion and nerd culture collided during the finale of Rodarte Fall/Winter 2014 in NYC, with dresses featuring images from the original Star Wars films making an appearance on the runway.
Back in 2012, George Lucas was spotted at Rodarte’s fall show next to Natalie Portman, who played Queen Padmé Amidala in the prequels. The Star Wars creator was reportedly overheard saying he was a “big fan” of the brand.
A Lucasfilm spokeswoman confirmed to the New York Post that Lucasfilm and its new parent company, Disney, worked together to create the designs, and that it was “exceptionally excited” to work with the designers.
Sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the forces behind Rodarte and self-described Star Wars fans, told the Los Angeles Times that Disney suggested they visit the archives to find images.
“But we already knew the images we wanted,” Laura said, “and we were afraid we’d go into the archives and never come out.”
Unfortunately, the dresses aren’t for sale and will only be available for photo shoots and exhibits in the fall. Sorry, super fans.
On March 1st, 2014, the Epsilon Xi (ΕΞ) chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma (ΓΣΣ) lost our beloved sister, Sabrina at the tender age of 19.
On March 2, 2014 at 12 PM EST, all of the members of our chapter, alumni as well, lit our induction candles in her memory.I would like to ask any and all members of Gamma Sigma Sigma to light a candle in her memory, regardless of what chapter/colony/district you may be in. Her radiant glow cannot equal anything on this earth but all of our candles could be a good contender.
Rest in peace, baby girl. The Peach Schnapps family, our family, misses you so much.
Strongest of bonds, uniting the world…
