Then there’s Armstrong’s little hair loop.
Are you suggesting the Hair Loop, which has been passed down by the Armstrong family for generations, which has survived countless battles and remained perfectly coiffed, is not a testament to the ELEGANCE and STRENGTH of the Armstrong legacy?!

I keep telling people that angels aren’t cute, fluffy beings, but are really scary as hell.
Maybe they’ll believe me now…
these are wonderful, I can’t decide which one is my favorite
Clearly theres a reason why they say ” Don’t be afraid”
Spent some time this am searching for and pinning djinni creatures to get some ideas about upcoming games. In addition to creatures, I’m also looking for exotic fashion, garb, and gear.
I pinned a few more than these but Tumblr will only let me do 10 at a time. Need the rest? The rest (and all the other monsters I pinned today) are in my NPC/Bestiary board on Pinterest.

Viktor Mikhailovich Vasnetsov, Dobrynya Nikitich Fights the Seven-Headed Zmey Gorynych (Бой Добрыни Никитича с семиглавым Змеем Горынычем)
Embossed ornament in the form of a lion-griffin, from the Oxus treasure
Achaemenid Persian, 5th-4th century BC
From the region of Takht-i Kuwad, Tadjikistan
This embossed ornament is part of the Oxus treasure, the most important collection of silver and gold to have survived from the Achaemenid period. The treasure is from a temple and dates mainly from the fifth and fourth centuries BC.
This piece, in the shape of a winged stag with a horned lion’s head, is decorated with hollows for inlay. There are two long pins at the back for attachment, though it is unclear what the ornament originally decorated.
This composite creature reflects the ‘Animal Style’ of South Russia and demonstrates the close relations between the Persians and the nomadic people of the northern steppe lands. The Persian kings had indirect access to the wealth and artistic traditions of northern Central Asia and Siberia, and some contacts are illustrated by this piece. [x]
