Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

This is absolutely strength and skill and it’s quite amazing. But I’m also super-uncomfortable with the implication that the stigmatization of its origins is *okay*, that it’s *better* now that it’s suddenly “clean”, and that the women who developed it should be erased/removed from its context. They made it. They deserve to keep being acknowledged for it. This is how women’s contributions get erased from history: because they’re the wrong kind of women, because they’re too sexy, because they’re from the wrong classes/ranks. Etc. Etc. So let’s not do that.

Good news for people with a Figma Levi that has an easily scratched Wings of Freedom back deal: GoodSmile will send you a replacement torso if you let them know about your problem. You can fill out a form and provide pictures of your scratched Levi here.

I live in Japan and turnaround was roughly one week; I don’t know how long it will take people in other countries.

The pictures above are what I received in the mail: a simple cardstock sleeve with my address hand-written on one side and the Good Smile address on the back. The torso is in a small ziplock bag and that is wrapped in a scrap of craft paper. I’m guessing that international people will get a more substantial package? 

I still recommend sanding down the stand’s peg that fits into Levi’s back if it feels rough (you can use a nail file) and doing the same to the mold injection points on the clear plastic attached to the cape.

As for what to do with your old torso? If you don’t mind taking a chance on screwing it up further, you can remove Levi’s cravat in order to make a female Levi out of Mikasa. ;D Or you can keep the damaged torso around for when you want to pose Levi with his cape, just to be on the safe side.

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

HHHNNNNN.
