One time the penguins proposed to me and since I couldn’t pick one of them, they squished me to death
I want to be squished by penguins
It was the best moment of my life
ref grabs. I guess her sugar coating is her “skin,” she has a nose and everything just painted over unlike the actual skeleton characters.
La Muerte (the character) is based on the Mexican Catrinas used during the Day of the Dead, and many women who dress up as the Catrina draw the nose holes on their noses like that to emulate the skull through make-up along with the colorful markings. The sugar coating on the “skin” is to show that La Muerte is made of candy, which emulates the candy skulls that are made for the festival of the Day of the Dead, and the candy skulls have those colorful markings on them as well. It’s also cool to notice the Cempasúchil flowers on her dress and hat, which are always present during the festival.
These are some of the reasons as to why I have mad respect for the details that are being given to these characters <3
Not only that but her color scheme is almost entirely the colors most used for Day of the Dead, Black, representing , the land of the dead, Pink meaning celebration, White for purity/hope, Yellow for a new day and the sun, Red for the life/blood of humans/animals, the only color missing would be purple which usually represented greif and suffering [however perhaps it was intended to be removed?]
Plus the candles placed on her sombrero is just really perfect because of the fact that candles are placed on the shrines people make for the dead in order for the dead to have easier guidance when returning
Also her dress itself is just, wow, really close to how Catrinas would be portrayed
Really great job for the character designs and the real effort and creativity put into this movie is just wowowow !!!
Straight guy: "Dude, i have a dope idea for a photo"
I finished my Prince Hans plushie! I think he turned out pretty well ;)
Lavoisier is having none of your shit.
Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.
Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject.
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
