You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!

Well, I see the similarity with Makoto as well.
Yeah I can definitely see the resemblance in Rei too

Hi! No no it’s fine :) Thank you very much! I apologize for taking so long to respond! I’ve been busy with school, and I also wanted to be as thorough as I could.
I have to warn you now though, the way I sew is just… it seems a little unstructured, because I honestly measure, cut out, pin, adjust, try it on “eh could use more adjusting”, re-pin it, try it on again until I’m satisfied, and then sew, try it on, make more adjustments because I’m nitpicky xD
But I will try my VERY best to explain this, since I’ve never gave any tutorials besides cooking/baking recipes before :S
I got some dark blue kind of sweater fleece fabric from Jo-Anns (I’m sorry, I forgot the type of fabric it was xD) and I believe I got 2 yards of that…
For the fur I used white faux fur material that I got form Jo-Anns as well. You should find it in the ribbon section or the aisle next to it :)
And for the emblem on the front of the sweater, that was made of craft foam and I just cut that into the desired shape and hot glued it on there.
For the detailing/trim on the cuffs of her sleeves and hem of her coat, I used some white polyester/cotton blend fabric and I sewed that onto there.
I measured myself, my chest, waist, hip, armpit to where I wanted the sleeves to end, shoulders to where I wanted the sleeves to end, neck to shoulder, neck to where I wanted the sweater to end, shoulder circumference, just below the armpit to the bottom of the jacket, and I believe that was it for measurements…
I started piecing together the hood. I kind of drew out a random pattern for hoods (you can find them online ^^ I just guessed) and I cut out the pattern, pinned them together in the middle and flipped it inside out to see how it would fit on my head. I liked how it was shaped, so I sewed the two side pieces together. Next was measuring the length of the fur to fit the outer rim of the hood, and once I got my desired length, I cut that and pinned the fur to the rim of the hood, right sides together, and the fabric of the hood is going to be kind of rolled up inside of the fur for now.
After I stitched it, I turned the fur right side out.
After making the body by cutting out and sewing the front and back pieces, I attached the hood to that by finding the middle of the hood, and pinning the hood to the middle of the back piece right sides together and I worked my way out.
For the sleeves, I just measured/drew out what shape would make Korra’s distinct sleeves (since the cuffs are designed at an angle).
The fur on the sleeve was the toughest part to be honest…
I had to pin that to both the sleeve, as well as the body piece, and sew through 4 layers at the same time T_T I kept the fur at the width it originally came in, but to create the way the fur gradually decreases in visibility around Korra’s armpit area, I pulled in the fur that is closest to the sleeve.
And as for the trim, I just measured and cut out the shape accordingly to the cuffs and hem of the hoodie and sewed it on with white thread.
I hope this all made sense to you D: If you have any questions, let me know! :)

I think my natural hair can work for Korra’s new do! <3
Can’t wait to make her new outfits!
A GIF showing what it’s like to wake up with sleep paralysis.
You’re forgetting the terrifying hallucinations
As someone who’s had sleep paralysis multiple times, let me tell you that if your mind has woken up and your body hasn’t DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN YOUR EYES. Wake your body up first by slowly trying to move it, wiggle your toes and hands, then gradually work your way up until your body is fully awake. Opening your eyes when you have sleep paralysis is hard enough, but when you do there is a good chance you can see hallucinations like this.
I also have been the victim of sleep paralysis too many times, its bad enough without hallucinations, and so i thought i would add some info on sleep paralysis for anyone who suffers from it.
- As Shada said, wiggling toes and hands are good ways to snap out of it, although other small body parts work, even humming/talking (although things related to breathing might be more difficult). Just FOCUS on one part, its hard to regain control, but easy to become paralyzed again.
- Once you can move again, dont go right back to sleep, you might get paralyzed again. Or have the worst dreams of your life. Turn on a light, do something relaxing, like reading a book. Its been said that looking at a light before sleeping can prevent sleep paralysis.
- Sleeping on your back rises the chances of you getting sleep paralysis. If you get it a lot, pay attention to what position you are in when it occurs.
- Hallucinations, the best part, arent just things like in the gif above. They could be anything from just dark shapes floating around, to scary monsters and demons to sounds and feeling like something is shaking/touching you. I’ve had an experience where it felt like my bed was shaking while a metallic screeching sound roared whenever i tried to breath. Solution? ignore it. Its all you can do. Hallucinations cant actually do anything to you, and you cant move again if you’re being distracted. And once the paralysis is gone, so are the hallucinations.
- Most people dont really have to worry, they will only get it once or twice in their life. Maybe not even ever! :D
listen to the person above when they say you should NOT open your eyes, because chances that you’ll see something that is uniquely terrifying to you are strong. and if it’s really bad, you might even start seeing scary shit even when your eyes are closed
my tip is to imagine the most ridiculous image/scene ever and keep replaying it in your head, over and over again, like robert downey jr butt naked or hugh dancy being confronted by police for taking pictures of airport carpets, etcetera etcetera
trust me. it works
reblogging because this is important and because you mentioned Hugh Dancy and his ridiculous airport carpet obsession
No but really sleep paralysis is fucking terrifying.
This is excellent advise I must keep in mind.
Sleep Paralysis is, indeed, fucking terrifying (first-hand experience), so if it happened to you or to anyone you know and there’s a possibility it can happen again, read and share this.
I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW THIS AND OTHERS SHOULD KNOW THIS TOO. This is the very god damn reason I can’t sleep in the fucking dark. I’ve only had it once but that one time was all I needed to erase my long time in therapy and bring me back to step 1. I had no fucking idea what sleep paralysis was and the fact that it gave you hallucinations. So please, if you have debilitating horror triggers, READ THIS. PLEASE DONT SCROLL PAST THIS, YOU MAY NEED THIS.
woah, thanks to this post i actually learned i have sleep paralysis and not lucid dreams… amazing.
This is great advice. I never knew how to deal with my sleep paralysis, but now I know what to try
it scares me that you never know what someone is thinking or feeling towards you and everything that they say could be one massive lie
all the time
Just a normal day with the survey nerds…..
