Hello! My name is Öykü Su and I'm a 15 years old Turkish metalhead girl who is a little shy, crazy about different mythologies and folklores, music (mainly folk/power/melodic death metal) and learning languages, also loves to create her own art, in a nutshell. You can call me Story or Uni :D
In here, you can see all the randomness of what i like aand some art I make. Enjoy! :D

First part of another art trade with Yana. It’s been a long time since my last drawing on coloured paper. More than two years, and on my line of creativity that is a lot. I didn’t even know how I missed it, surely this one isn’t the last one you see. And yes, I do love old Japanese illustrations.

You may or may not know that Neon Genesis Evangelion takes place between July 6th, 2015 to January 1st, 2016. Here’s an exhaustive breakdown of the exact dates of events, using the times provided by the show and per character dialogue. Some noteworthy finds:
Kaworu met Shinji on Christmas Eve, and died on Christmas Day.
The median amount of time between angel attacks is 11 days.
Toji lost his left leg on Halloween.
Kaji died a day before Misato’s 30th birthday.
Shinji is “birthed” from Unit-01 a day after Asuka’s 14th birthday.
- The first half of End of Evangelion takes place on Toji’s 15th birthday, one day after Kaworu’s death.
The general skeleton for the first few months was graciously compiled here. Note that in Japan, schools are in session (half-days) on Saturdays.

Viking Age Male Clothing:
The ruthless (but beautiful) landscape of northern Europe meant that the clothing for both males and females had to be practical and somewhat simple. There is very little variation between the clothing of Germans and Scandinavians throughout their early history.
Primarily made of wool or linen but other fabrics like silk from the east were used as well. Men’s clothing typically consisted of an outer tunic, kyrtill, and often had surprisingly complicated patterns woven around it’s edges. Among wealthier people, silk lined the tunic, but for poorer men, an under tunic made from linen would suffice.
Trousers were simple and were held with a drawstring (much like sweatpants) and leg wraps made from long pieces of wool were wrapped around the calves. Socks were not knitted but made by utilizing a technique called nálbinding or ‘needle binding’ which involved a tedious method of knotting the yarn to its neighboring threads.
Shoes were leather and made with the stitches on the inside to keep the wearers feet from getting wet (a fatal mistake in the winter.)
Norse belts (Top middle picture) were leather and much thinner than the thick Roman style belts. Often, the buckle was, as many other Nordic fixtures, highly decorated.
Last, the cloak was a necessity on hunts or during general work outside in the winter and even the poorest man wouldn’t dare leave his home without one.
One of the great virtues of the Norse people was hospitality and any family who could afford an extra set of clean clothing to weary travelers did so with joy.
