I have finally done the thing since people have asked for it many many times: a better look at my Powerpuff Girls designs!  I had a chance to put more thought into their them this time around and I’m quite satisfied with it all.

This was done mainly for those who wanted to cosplay the girls, in which I say, feel free to take any liberties beyond what I’ve done and I hope you all enjoy my take on the PPGs!

photos by matt smith from the Illawarra coast in new south wales of bluebottles, violet snails and blue dragons. 

despite its resemblance to the jellyfish, the bluebottle is more closely related to coral. known as a zooid, the bluebottle (or portugese man of war) is a colonial animal composed of many highly specialized and physiologically integrated individual organisms incapable of independent survival. 

the blue dragon — a type of nudibranch, here no larger than a thumbnail, with its own potent sting — is able to eat the nematocysts (stinging cells) of the bluebottle without discharging them and internally relocate them to the tips of each one of the fingers you can see in the pictures.

for their part, the violet snails also feed on the bluebottles.

notes matt, “despite their potentially dangerous sting, the bluebottle is an amazingly beautiful creature. with strong winds, hundreds of these cnidaria are blown into the bays around my home town and trapped overnight.”

this allows him to capture the above shots, which he creates with use of a fluorescent tube in his strobe light and a homemade waterproof lens dome.

Okay so this post made me go and look up Portuguese Man O’ War (something I actually do every now and then because they’re so weird and intriguing), which then made me go look up how new Man O’ War are brought into existence.
…I have written explanation, and that’s all I’ll probably end up with.

I think about dying but I don’t want to die. Not even close. In fact my problem is the complete opposite. I want to live, I want to escape. I feel trapped and bored and claustrophobic. There’s so much to see and so much to do but I somehow still find myself doing nothing at all. I’m still here in this metaphorical bubble of existence and I can’t quite figure out what the hell I’m doing or how to get out of it.
