The Ancient One is… Celtic?

Marvel, seemingly responding to critics about casting Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, released the background for the character. Saying that this embodiment is Celtic. Well here’s the statement: Marvel has a very strong record of diversity in its casting of films and regularly departs from stereotypes and source material to bring its MCU to life. The Ancient One is a title that is not exclusively held by any one character, but rather a moniker passed down through time, and in this particular film the embodiment is Celtic. We are very proud to have the enormously talented Tilda Swinton portray…

[Video] Whitney Wears: 1940s Makeup Tutorial – How to get Peggy Carter’s look!

Finally! I ran into some setbacks (this was a new type of video for me, so lighting and setting it up was totally different), but here it is! As promised, here’s the full list of makeup and tools that I used in the video. L’oreal BB cream (as foundation), applied with bb Brush from H&M.

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.03 “Time and Tide”

If it’s Wednesday, then it means it’s time for another edition of Whitney Watches! As a reminder, these videos are meant for regular viewers of the series – since I talk about current character arcs and where the show might be headed. It isn’t a recap video! So tell me, what are YOUR theories about what’s going to happen? Is mine all that crazy? Let me know in the comments, and if I get enough of them, I might just do a separate video since there isn’t a new episode next week. If you aren’t following these accounts already, you…

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.01 & 1.02

It’s been far too long, but I’m back with another vlog – and it’s about Marvel’s Agent Carter – the 7 part television event (that’s a fancy name for mini-series) focusing on Peggy Carter. Last night’s two hour premiere was made up of two episodes, and the above video are my mostly coherent thoughts. I promise that next week I’ll have it more together- the Whitney Watches videos aren’t recaps, they’re meant more to talk about characterization, possible arcs and all the fun references. But I was overwhelmed by the awesomeness. If you missed last night’s episodes and didn’t DVR…

Vlog 16: DC and Marvel feelings, I have them.

It’s the Vlog! I think I’m going to have to start updating the Vlog on Fridays- I’m too busy doing my parental duties, volunteering in the Little Kidlet’s class. I was asked on Tumblr (I wish I could remember who suggested it, sorry) about my thoughts on DC and Marvel (both movies and comics) so I managed to streamline my thoughts into this… If you happen to have any suggestions for videos, let me know! I am always looking for vlog ideas.
