John Webber
A Chief of the Sandwich Islands
England/Hawaii, 1787
National Library of Australia, Canberra
[x]
John Webber was an artist who accompanied the colonist Captain James Cook on his third voyage into the Pacific. He painted many landscapes of the South Seas Islands, as well as portraits of the inhabitants thereof.
The Hawaiian chief in the picture is probably Kalaniʻōpuʻu, who at first welcomed Captain Cook and his crew, and was later held hostage by them. The Hawaiians then made the very sensible decision to have the Captain killed. 
(Contrary to popular belief, they didn’t eat his body - cannibalism wasn’t their custom. However, in a turn of events entirely befitting his name, he was in fact cooked.)

[mod note] It’s my understanding that Cook’s death happened during an armed conflict that was the result of his own poor decisions-he was also described by eyewitnesses as being “irrationally violent”. Although some histories claim that a Hawaiian man “stole” one of his boats, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that he was actually taking hostages to try and secure the return of his own men who had deserted (yet again).  He could be said to have been “cooked”, but it was just a part of his funeral in which his bones were separated; he was given a Hawaiian burial in Kealakekua Bay.

Of course, if you are not in the US, you might have to persuade it that you are by, for example, giving it a US zipcode. Did I say that out loud?

Mademoiselle Silverblade

Is the moniker the Madame goes among the elite circle of swordsmanship enthusiasts. Pitting different styles and different blades against each other, the Madame champions the school of classical fencing, in particular the Dardi school, with the distinction of using a heavier and longer blade.

To date, the Madame has only lost a sparring once: to her master, the former champion of the fencing style.

(So yeah, I should’ve been preparing for my booth this Saturday, but the rapier arrived from plating and I just had to make the Madame a fencing set so I could do a photoshoot. One thing led to another, as usual. XDDD)

OMG THAT OUTFIT!!!!

I always wanted to learn fencing.
