When you researched if they existed back then, did you also look at their origins? Bikinis were invented in the Cold War when everyone thought the world was about to end. They were having a fashion show and someone came up with the idea. The people in charge said it was too scandalous, but the designer said, "hey, the world might end. If it does, no one cares if we put out a scandalous swim suit. If it doesn't, it might catch on!"
Lo and behold, the world didn't end, and the bikini caught on!
*Is a total history buff*
When did Lily and Snape ever go to the beach together?? I don't remember this at all!
I can just read his mind, "I hate you, Lily. You've got me out here all naked and cold, not to mention the gray skies." Then he looks at her... "But I still love you, because you've got YOU out here all naked. So that just made my day a whole lot better!"
Of course he would never say that out loud. But even though he's all shy and whatnot he's still thinking about Lily. Cause he's in love... <3 Aww...
why is snape wearing a banana hammock?! that is the most disturbing thing i have ever seen!! other than potential scaring which may or may not result in major therapy for the rest of my life, this is really good. i love your style!! ^^
I WANT. TO TOUCH. THEIR BELLIES. Mostly Snapes, because I don't swing towards ladies.
All creepyness aside, you piece is not only fueling my squee for this pairing but it's also fabulously well drawn. I love the definition in their bodies (especially bellies). I mean they actually look like people. Don't get me wrong, I like Anime, but it's refreshing to see characters, ESPECIALLY women drawn this accurately. Lily is not painfully skinny and smooth and I love that, because this is how people actually look, and the time and effort to put in these details makes your piece so much better. Also, giving Lily and Snape such distinct face shapes is just great! I hate it when I can't tell a character apart if you take away unique hair and clothing (I'm looking at you Tite Kubo) Lily looks like a lady and Snape looks like Snape. I love his nose. Also, their hair turned out really beautiful, especially Lily's. I think the way it's billowing slightly gives here a sense of motion, like she's about to splash poor Snapey in the face. (or maybe she just did and that's why he looks so sad XD ) I LOVE Snape's posture, it obvious that it's cold and he's not enjoying himself. He also seems a little embarrassed about his figure. (who wouldn't be, in a speedo...) Poor, scrawny fella.
