Happy 1st of October!
Yukawa Shoudou (1868-?) 湯川松堂
from the series One Hundred Beauties Depicting Modern and Ancient Manners 今古風俗百美人、1903
I mean look.
The moment he turns toward her it’s like he’s observing her. To see what she’ll do.
Then she speaks and he looks so disappointed. Like he wished she would move on, because deep down he probably thinks she would be better off without him. And at the same time it probably reminds him of Rin… because that’s the face of a man who feels hella bad about himself.
And he’s just sooo fucking sad when he looks at her and he feels soo bad for her there is so much concern here I can’t explain it with words! He’s so disappointed in Sasuke. Seeing him rejecting her, seeing what he’s doing to her, how he hurts her.
That’s why I just love how his sadness changes to anger when he speaks. He cares so much about Sakura. Not just her physical well being, he wants her to be happy. It pisses him off so much to see Sasuke act the way he does. And despite all the pain he’s causing her, he knows this is what she wants… so he tries to talk to him anyway. Tries to make him understand her feeling.
Because in the end the only thing Kakashi cares about now is his students. And it hurts me oh so much to hear him say those words to Sasuke on Sakura’s behalf.
A+ sensei. A+ man. A+ human being Hatake kakashi.
Because they FLAP.
Because ALL boots should’ve had them to begin with.
Because they’re downright fun, no matter what anyone else says.
Because they add that perfect extra touch to just about any outfit, be it gothic, steampunk, cosplay, or anything else.
Because BOOTWINGS. That should be explanation enough right there.
Should you get your own set? ABSOLUTELY YES- Go right here to do so!
(Really, though, I was so happy to get an opportunity to work with model/photographer archaical on these- she brings such a great sense of fun and whimsy to a lot of her work, and it’s wonderful to see on these.)
You wanted an afternoon rebloop? WELL, HERE YOU GO, PEOPLE. CHECK OUT AND SHARE THE AWESOMENESS.
Seriously, yes, SHARE/REBLOG it. It’s BootWing season (BootWing Country?) and so help me, we need to justify the amount of butt-working-off that’s been going on around here.
