The one time a feminine article of clothing has a functional pocket.
Okay Tumblr, I see that this gif has caused a little bit of commotion by pointing out that Elsa’s braid “phases” or “clips” through her arm. Some people say that this is lazy while other’s justify it. However technical people get they ignore, from the posts I have seen anyway, addressing the possible reasons why the animators at Disney let this to the final cut of the movie.
Okay, the “phasing” or “clipping” of the hair is intentional. It wasn’t a mistake. Nor was it a product of lazy animators and directors. When looking at things like this you need to think of animation as a magic trick. It’s not real.
The first clue is how they position her shoulders when it happened:
Right before the dirty deed is done, Elsa is turned so that we can’t see the her hair flow through her shoulder while shooting arrows into the sunset.
The exact frame that her hair is in view, it has already performed its trick.
See? That’s the first clue.
The second clue is a bit more in depth and requires to look at the flow of animation and color closely.
We start out with:
Her head is just off center of the screen and is really bright compared to everything else. Naturally drawing our eyes to that spot.
Her hair bounces up making sure that our eyes focus on Elsa face and in the next few frames, her hands.
The hair is intentionally dropped behind the arm so our eyes don’t follow it and we REALLY focus on her face. Because right now it is the most important thing on the screen.
I wish I could style my hair this easily.
Here we are again! Take note that we have been basically following her left hand in our even if we can’t see it. It derives most of the focused motion in the shot.
Elsa’s left hand moves behind her head leading our focus back to her face. Having her also open her eyes at the same time also makes us want to look at her face and away from the trick that is happening.
And the magic trick is over. It is also important to note how her head has slowed down significantly and Elsa’s eyes lead our focus to her hand which stretches out to transition us to the next shot.
All in all, this must have been a carefully laid out shot that to be able not only look excellent but draw our notice away from a little trick/shortcut, and in the end made it a more powerful lead into the next shot.
I took my time to break this down because knowing the reason why Elsa is animated this way will give us a greater appreciation of the work. Because it really is fantastic.
Animation is a magic trick. Being the person who points out the misdirection doesn’t make you superior or smart. You just ruin the magic for everyone. Teaching the person the illusion shows respect and could lead to greater magic in the future.
The best of The Mayhem Guy from the Allstate commercials
Dean Winters probably has one of the best jobs. This + being Mariska’s TV bf…yupp, the dude’s livin the life lol
i think im singlehandedly destroying this show
almost every 1-800 number directs to a sex hotline, no big deal
when i was in middle school my friend thought it would be funny to dial 1-800-TROLOLO and it directed him to one
Alright. Let me explain you a thing. Hang on, where’s Eleven?
There we go! Now, I hate to be the boring one who’s going to ruin the joke for everyone. But that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Sorry.
1. Not everyone who is in a wheelchair is permanently disabled.
Many people, myself included, have the ability to stand and even walk short distances. Hence, there’s nothing saying that a woman cannot stand up for a brief moment in order to reach something from the top shelf. Yes, I understand, it’s alcohol!
2. Let’s make Sherlock proud and do some deducting, shall we?
The woman’s spine is twisted. She is leaning against the shelf for support. And you can see how the lower part of her spine/bottom is arched out, meaning that she is leaning forward and putting a majority of her weight into her arm as she twists to use the other arm to reach for the bottle. She is standing a few inches away from the wheelchair which means that she probably put the brakes on, stood up, clutched onto the shelf for support, and used her other hand to reach for the bottle.
3. Is anyone going to talk about the fact that there is a person on the left side of the frame and clearly a person taking the photo?
The person that we see is walking away and of course the other person is careless enough to take the photograph.
4. Hey how about a guilt trip?
Imagine that you’re as old as the woman in the wheelchair. Perhaps it is your daughter’s birthday or you’re throwing a get-together for you and a few friends. You have gotten everything except the wine to toast. You enter a store and see a bottle that you like. Unfortunately, it is on the top shelf and you are in a wheelchair. So you shakily stand up, using your left hand to clutch onto the shelf as you try to reach towards that bottle of wine. Meanwhile, another customer will walk right past you and somebody will be heartless enough to take a photo of you, posting it online where it will soon become a cruel meme.
Now, obviously that’s not the real story. So what is? No idea. I don’t know and neither do you. For all we know, she could actually be faking a disability and subsequently slips up in the alcohol aisle. For all we know, powers that are beyond our understanding could have performed a miracle to allow her to spontaneously leap up and grab said bottle. But until we know, it’s cruel and ignorant to keep posting this picture.
^ THIS. ALL OF THIS.
This shit pisses me off to no end. There is a huge difference between standing up for a few seconds to grab something off a shelf and walking for an extended period of time.
Wheelchairs, crutches, canes, etc. are mobility aids. They are meant to assist you in being more mobile. Being able forgo that assistance momentarily does not mean that you don’t need it. You could go a few days without eating, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need food.
And for those thinking, “Well, she probably just didn’t want help. Surely someone would have helped her if she wanted them to.” They might have. If she explicitly asked for it. And if they were paying any attention.
I do not use a wheelchair myself, but I am very short. Grocery shopping is an adventure that usually required performing some potentially hazardous acrobatic maneuvers in order to get things off the top shelf. I could literally count the number of times I have been offered assistance in my entire life on one hand. Occasionally, when I simply could not climb high enough or stretch far enough, I have asked nearby strangers for help only to be ignored. Sometimes people will even lean past you to get something while ignoring you. And I’m just short.
^^ ALL THIS!! I’ve gotten so much CRAP from people for standing up while in a scooter!! JFC
ALL OF THAT.
Fuck the asshole who took this picture.

dont forget the part where you pretend you’re having a really sad moment in the rain
And the period shower where you stand and watch the blood flowing down the drain as if you just got back from a war or brawl.
As a girl I can confirm that all of this happens.

I feel this to my core.
Lol at #3. Seriously my friends family is obsessed With Bebe and it’s all plain clothing that costs way too much and barely anyone can fit into it
