When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that.


Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularlyhow do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.

I was tagged by @multiversebox

My questions:

1. Did you wake up in a good mood today?

I’m never in a good mood when it involves leaving my fortress bed.

2. What’s your favorite city/place you’ve visited?

I haven’t visited many places :( so I’ll say Melbourne

3. Do you hate frogs?

No, I love frogs! They’re so slimy and weird…

4. Choose one thing you’ll eat for the rest of your life.


5. Which song do you want people to play at your funeral?

Anything by Linkin Park.

6. Imagine you are trapped in a room with Ant-Man and The Wasp. What do you do?

Get out the bug spray. Or Jenga, uno, whatever.

7. Which language would you like to learn?


8. What’s one music genre you can’t stand?

Weird alternative music. If it doesn’t have a beat and includes someone singing in a strange pitch while swaying I don’t want it.

9. What’s the #1 problem in the world, in your opinion?

People not being honest. However I am not very worldly and am very ignorant so there is probably someone with a better answer.

10. Which country do you REALLY wanna go to in the next year or so.

Italy or Greece! Or Panama :P

11. What would your ideal partner be like?

Taller than me. Strong enough to lift me up, but not a tutonic douchebag. Someone who knows I can take care of myself so they don’t coddle me, but who knows when I need help and isn’t afraid to give it. Someone who understands that I’m stubborn and aggressive and loves every little bit of me anyway. 


1. If you had one breathe left, what would you say?

2. Describe your perfect night:

3. If you were an animal, what would you be (based on your personality not on your favourites)?

4. Do you wear slippers or socks when it’s cold?

5. List 3 good things about yourself:

6. Your house is on fire. You can only grab 2 (materialistic) things. What do you grab?

7. What’s your favourite time of day?

8. How do you motivate yourself?

9. If you could have control over any element, which element would you choose (fire, water, earth, air, wind)?

10. Who would you most want to take into a photo booth?

11. What colour are your bedsheets?

I’ve got a bowl of nachos, glass of rum, my ps4 and a cow onesie.

My easter is beginning perfectly.



Crotcheted by my Mum in Amigurumi style. Stands about 5 inches tall. Made for Lauren (Playstationgirl) as a gift. On it’s way to Australia soon!

Since my Dad died recently, she is trying to start her own business as she has never worked (was a mother and housewife her whole life) and is finding it hard to find a job and money is tight. She’s taking requests for bespoke figures over at:

One of the best things about being an adult is that you don’t have to wait until easter to start eating your easter eggs… YOU CAN START RIGHT NAO

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Just wondering. you have super long thick swishy hair (daydreams about it being my own) and I just would like to know how you fit it all under a wig? Your Lilith wig is tiny and your hair is so big! =)
playstationgirl playstationgirl Said:


- I split my hair into four sections, starting with a normal centre part, then spliting each side again

- Braid each section as close to the head as possible

- Turn each braid up at the bottom of the neck and pin along the head, in between the braids


- Hair cap.

Even with all this, I still have a noticeable bump and often the hair sits too high.

… I have actually made an appointment to cut it all off this week *cries with excitement and nervousness*


death note is getting a remake or whatever i hope they redo that dramatic potato chip scene and make it even more dramatic
