Hey tumblr, have you ever thought to yourself, “dang it’d sure be cool to set a project in something other than the current times,” but when you go to look up references on google, all you get is a horrible historical pastiche of days gone by?

Well boy howdy, do I have a reference for you!

The Wishbook Web has scans of entire consumer catalogs from past decades, ranging from the early 30s to the late 80s. Each catalog has pages upon pages of reference of clothing, accessories, and shoes for all ages, as well as toys, gadgets, and all sorts of junk that you might buy for yourself or your loved ones. While the website exclusively has Christmas catalogs, the photos and illustrations show products that you could use year-round.

omg yay

holy shit this is incredible

18 Various Kinds of Opals  

When most people think of an opal, they might think of a milky-colored stone containing a rainbow of stripes or flecks inside it.  What many people don’t know is that they are incredibly diverse in appearance, and are not actually minerals.  Opals are a solid, amorphous form of silica, and are classified as “mineraloids”.  Like other mineraloids, such as amber, pearl, and obsidian, they lack structural order, or “crystallinity”. 

From the top:

  • Black Opals
  • Cat’s Eye Opals
  • Dendritic Opals
  • Flamingo Opals
  • Peruvian Pink Opals
  • Zebra Opals
  • Leopard Opals
  • Yowah Nut and Koroit Opals (both have the same characteristics - they merely come from two different areas).
  • Brown Opals
  • Ethiopian Honeycomb Opals
  • Green Opals (Serbian, Tanzanian, and Brazilian)
  • Peruvian Blue Opals
  • Matrix Opals
  • Landscape Opals (Andean and Australian)
  • Mexican Fire Opals
  • Crystal Opals
  • Australian Boulder Opals
  • Ethiopian Ribbon Opals

graciehagen:

cry·ing  /ˈkrī-iNG/ - the act is defined as a complex secretomotor phenomenon characterized by the shedding of tears from the lacrimal apparatus, without any irritation of the ocular structures.

  In an age where nudity is less vulnerable than genuine emotions, I wanted to explore an aspect of peoples lives that are hidden.
  These are the faces of the intentionally vulnerable. They’re showing you a part of themselves that is usually saved for their loved ones or even sometimes, just themselves.
  You don’t know why they are crying, but you know that this is a rare look into a stranger’s most personal moments.
  Things that were private, now made public.
Secretomotor Phenomenon series by Gracie Hagen

Some excellent reference for how people cry.
