This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.
if this isnt ur reaction everytime i come online u need 2 go
“Did you put your name into the Goblet of Fire, Harry?” he asked calmly.

the really shitty thing about being told that youre smart your whole entire life is that as soon as you dont understand something you just kind of completely shut down and his this big shitty crisis because maybe youre not as smart as youve always been told
This happens to me all the time and it feels really really shitty trust me.
Hamacon is coming up and yet again I thought I’d share some unusual/semi-unusual con tips:
- Seal your paint! Not only will this stop it from getting all over everyone else’s expensive cosplays but will also stop it from getting on your own cosplay…and melting off your face. Makeup sealant isn’t as expensive as a dry cleaners.(buy it here) If it really is still too pricey, Nyx and E.L.F have their own brand available at most drug stores.
- Pack snacks/drinks because vending machines tend to sell them at higher prices than stores. Drinks can easily be stored in cooler bags(and hotel fridges if you can afford it/the hotel has them free).
- Don’t touch anyone without permission. I don’t care if you love the character, you are not entitled to hugs, kisses, or any other touching. Ask first, always…and don’t pitch a fit if someone says no.
- Be very careful what you say. It might seem like you’re in your own little bubble and no one can hear you over the crowds, but it’s likely someone could hear you if they’re close-by enough.
- Don’t take any pictures of others without permission.
- Brings IDs, especially if you hope to get into any R18 panels.
- Budget yourself.
- Bring small but very much needed things(hair pins, safety pins, thread, needles, sewing pins, etc) in zip-lock bags.
- Tape down makeup that has a tendency to open itself so the makeup won’t get on everything in your bag and ruin itself. Mehron grease paint sticks have a tendency to do this especially.
- Bring antacids and pain relievers.
- Turn short wigs inside out to avoid tangling, and braid long wigs. The best shot at keeping their style intact is to either put them in their own plastic bag, or the best option: putting them on a wig stand.
- Pin/Spirit Gum wigs to your head to avoid them falling off. You can sew in wig clips for an even better hold(for heavy wigs especially), but be prepared to come home with some seriously hole-y wig caps. Wig clips have to get a hold of some hair to have any effect.
- Get some air every once in a while, especially at summer cons.
That’s about it for my tips, but if anyone can think of more feel free to add on.
- Try to stay away from fandom drama. It will ruin your entire convention experience and probably last until the next convention or even beyond that.
- It’s okay to ask people for their Facebook, phone number, etc. but only if you feel like they are safe people to contact. Some may also seem safe, may even be the same age as you, but aren’t safe to talk to in reality. If they try to ask you for nudes or talk to you sexually when you give them contact information, cut off all ties with them. You must be careful with who you trust.
- People at conventions tend to act like a big family. It’s a really nice atmosphere. There are however some people who are mean to others. Be careful not to set them off and if you do, don’t let them ruin your day.
- Merchandise at conventions can cost a lot of money. You can find things for over a hundred dollars even. Make sure you bring enough to last the entire convention.
- Try to buy tickets prior to the convention. They are more expensive at the door and the lines can be extremely long, especially on Saturdays.
- Most people don’t eat at conventions at all. They don’t even bring food and they certainly don’t buy the expensive food sold there. This does not make keeping yourself from eating “cool”. Make sure to stay hydrated and eat enough to keep you going each day. Most likely you’ll be on your feet for over ten hours the entire weekend.
- Some fandoms have group photoshoots. Try to search for them on Facebook since they usually have Facebook pages. It’s a good way to meet people in your fandom.
- If you’re wanting to meet a guest at the convention, be prepared for a very, very long line. It will probably take at least an hour or so depending on the size of the convention.
- Most people go on Saturdays so if you’re only going one day, Saturday is the best day to go. Sundays are the days when least people are there and are the least fun. If you don’t want to go for the entire weekend, a good suggestion would be to go on Friday and/or Saturday.
- You don’t need to plan out what panels you want to go to and when for the entire weekend. 75% of the fun of conventions is meeting people and seeing everyone’s cosplays. That’s why Saturday is the best day to go even though it’s the busiest day.
- Don’t bully others. It’s sad that can’t be something that everyone should know right off the bat but I have seen so many people bullied at conventions and I personally have been bullied at them myself. If your fandom starts to have too many bullies and drama, it’s a good idea to leave for a while to another fandom and come back when the drama is over. Sadly, this may take months or even longer.
