Just so everybody knows, the mirror is actually more reliable than the camera. Even though people say “the camera never lies”, it distorts your photographs a little bit. It has to turn a 3d image (you in real life) to a 2d image (a photograph) and consequently skews the proportions a little bit.
Also, “photogenic” is a real thing. Certain faces photograph well and others don’t. It’s all down the angles, proportions and size of your features.
Have you ever seen someone stunning who looks great in professional photographs and not in candids? Yeah, that’s because there’s a huge difference between a professional and an amateur. Professionals know how to minimise the issues cameras have. Lighting, angles and even the distance you are away from the camera plays a part (the amount of distortion varies depending on how close you are).
TL;DR if you think you look great in the mirror but not in the photo, trust the mirror. You look great!

NOT ONLY THAT, but when you look in a mirror, you’re seeing your face in motion, how others would see it. In a photograph, you’re still, and it can make small flaws and the like seem a lot more prominent, despite them being quite minuscule in person.

Also! Also, when you see yourself in the mirror you are looking at you face reverse of how a camera pics it up. No face is perfectly symmetrical so you get so used to seeing a mirrored version of your face that when it’s flipped in a picture you subconsciously notice the tiny differences in your face and thus you think you don’t look right.

I have never felt so relieved and beautiful thank you guys

    Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
    http://www.dailydot.com/news/darrien-hunt-shot-by-police-while-cosplaying/

    Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.

    Seriously, man, this is all kinds of bullshit.

  10. She’s a Modern Woman

    Dear urban fantasy authors,

    I love you to death, but perhaps one of you could demonstrate that your female protagonist is “strong and independent” without giving her an alpha male boyfriend to be strong at.

    Hey, maybe if you want to demonstrate your lead’s strength maybe give her a career in science, engineering or IT.  Just a thought.

    Oh Don, there you go starting shit with the urban fantasy crew. ;)

    Harley is a gift from God.

    This is why Harley is like my all time favorite!

    Why did they leave out the best part of this scene?;

    The character development of Harley is probably one of the better things DC has done with their characters.

    I’d only read the second part of this, but the first makes it so much better.  And sadder.  I used to say I didn’t really like Harley, but this scene does kind of make her wonderful.
