Paper kimonos.  "These paper kimonos are made using chiyogami, momigami, and washi, (Japanese Paper) featuring popular designs from the Edo period (1600-1868). Each Kimono presents the appearance of fabric but is actually beautiful patterned paper. 

 Karen [O’Hanlon] crafts these works of art by first making templates of varying sizes for each pattern piece of the kimono. Each kimono is made by laying eleven templates on the patterned paper. Karen then cuts, folds, glues, and layers the pattern paper with precision. Due to the delicacy of the patterned paper the same steps are repeated for the lining of the kimono. The kimono is made exactingly as an authentic cloth kimono.
Each work of art reflects the theme of Karen’s collection which is to enrich the world with the unique influences of traditional Japanese paper art and to re-introduce the ancient art of the kimono.”

I can never stop posting this. The narrow minded bible fanatics that just look at one small thing in the bible then feed the world with their hate over it. At the same time they ignore all the other silly laws made by man they claimed were made by god. These gif’s say it all.

Exactly!

Omg this was best post I’ve seen today, I will never scroll by this. EVER

one time when I was about four, the 10 year old neighbour boys attacked me with water guns and when I ran away and told my mom she gave me the hose and set it to pressure wash and basically told me to finish what they started  

update: when I told my mom about this post she told me that the boys actually ran to their mom to tell on me and their mom told them that they deserved it because they started the fight and let me continue to pressure wash her backyard and children
