‘tis the seaso written by Emme Furlong


t’s officially November which means our thoughts have transitioned from midterms, costumes, and candy to finals, pies, and cookies. In midst of the traveling, last minute gifts, and cramming until the end of the semester, it’s often that we lose ourselves, forgetting to care for this vessel of ours while we are busy giving to others. I am a victim of classic seasonal-selfneglect that turns into failed New Year’s resolutions that turns in to an existential meltdown come mid-March. This does not have to be you!!!!! This time of the year does not have to be a time to derail all of your goals and you can transition to 2019 looking and feeling good. I have put together some tips that I have implemented into my life that have allowed me stay on track during the most magical time of the year. In the spirit of giving, I am passing these on to you.

balance, balance, balance When it comes to fighting the “Seasonal Scaries” (a.k.a all the personal stresses that come with making it through the holiday season), securing a balance and maintaining it is going to be key. Like most things in life, balance is really a mental game. Finding a routine like 80%-healthy 20%-treat, or weekdayshealthy and weekends-treat is going to allow you to indulge in those holiday cravings within a controlled parameter.

phone a friend The only person that will make sure you stay on track more than you is going to be your best friend. Find someone -anyone- and have them hold you accountable for your success. If anything, you can have them do your plan with you, leaning on each other for encouragement throughout the process.

rise and grind Get up and get moving!! My slow transition into a morningperson has become the greatest things that’s ever happened to me. When you get up and get your workout in before you start your day, it’s DONE. That way, no matter what life throws at you throughout the day, that’s something you don’t have to worry about. Even if you have to cut it short, you’ll feel a lot better about a short workout than no workout at all.

get in the kitchen Common misconception- you don’t have the be the sad person at the holiday party picking at the store bought veggie tray. Get in the kitchen and add a healthy twist to your favorite holiday recipes! There are thousands of recipes online and on Pinterest, so you are bound to find one that you’ll love and even have fun making. You’ll feel great knowing that you made and know what you’re putting into our body. Added bonus, you’re bound to impress all of your friends and family with your mad healthy cooking skills. So take a deep breath and take a cookie off that gold, shiny platter. This is a time to enjoy spending with the people you love. You need to make sure that you are on that Nice list too! Taking care of your body and prioritizing your health is so important for establishing positive habits and long term results. So find what works for you, stick to it, and enjoy!

Cashmere Massacre

A lot has been said about the slasher film's last girl, let's talk about her sweater. When a fall day is particularly chilly and crisp, all I can think about while walking home from class is curling up on my couch and watching an old school scary movie. Sure, these movies have violence and shocks, but they also have pretty foliage and the coziest outfits. There is an ironic comfort that can be found when immersed in the atmosphere of a horror flick, and people are clamoring for it. The past few years have seen a compelling resurgence of interest in moody, macabre genre media driven by nostalgia. A love of John Carpenter, Wes Craven, and John Landis is evident throughout popular culture, as seen in Stranger Things, IT, and just about anything Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa touches. We are being inundated with stylized, spooky films and shows full of moody lighting, retro fashion, and gothic camp. These have had a major influence on fashion trends. What drives this love? Why do people seek out horror like it’s pumpkin spiced comfort food? And what role does fashion play in this ironic infatuation? In a self aware genre that is constantly picking itself apart and going meta to analyze its own tropes, is impossible to think that horror isn’t acutely aware of the connotations made by the clothing choices of characters, whether these be malicious or not. The slasher film’s “last girl” trope describes the strong female characters who survive horror movies, and the often problematic common denominators between them. These

women are smart, resourceful, and moral. They are also almost always conservatively dressed and virginal. The late 70s and early 80s were a heyday of female driven horror. Classics like Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Carrie all featured young actresses who became prototypes of the final girl trope, and they all looked the part. They sported bare faces and soft, brushed out hair. While other high schoolers in these movies are dressed in shorter shorts, lower cut blouses, and sheer nightgowns, the title characters appeared to be styled by Diane Keaton. They paired corduroy slacks and pleated khakis with crisp oxford shirts and cardigans. While it is a shame that these movies punish female characters for expressing their sexuality and sensationalize violence against these women, these iconic “last girls” are still rare example of capable and independent women in film. They are not objectified as women on screen often are and despite the pitfalls of the genre, shine as iconic characters. For better or for worse, there is definitely something comforting about the fact that the fresh faced girl in a sweater is going to make it. So we pop some popcorn, maybe brew some tea, wrap ourselves in the comfort of a cardigan and think about how cute Jamie Lee Curtis looked in bell bottoms.

“I have always seen design as a high art, and never as a means to an end.�

An Artist's



y story is like many others: doodling on the wall as a child, making dresses for paper dolls, even ruining the expensive coffee table in the living room with paint (sorry dad). We all remember begging our parents for something growing up. For me, it was always art related. Then, one day, I got a Project Runway kit when I was in grade school. It was like I discovered a unicorn or something. It was filled with clothing templates, design examples, and croquis: those outlines of models you draw clothes on. I was sooo obsessed. And maybe that’s the reason why I became so interested in design in general; I never stopped drawing clothing after that. An artist usually goes through cycles. They get hooked on something, then it sort of adds to their art style or number of interests. As a kid, I started with drawing clothing, then I danced, got into anime and manga, started to play music, and then took an interest in costume design; I’m partial to it even now. There’s something otherworldly about it. Costuming can really transform someone, make them be from any place, in any time. Even in college, I continue learning about it. Big lesson? A person can start being an artist in any medium, really at any time. So, a remark I get a lot from people is that they can’t draw, that they’re not creative, etc. I argue, though, that they can draw, and that perhaps they just haven’t found the right creative outlet. I started out like other people: with stick figures, giving them dope triangle dresses. It took years for me to get to where I am today, and I still see myself as a beginner. If someone doesn’t take to drawing specifically that’s okay. There are so many mediums out there to do, it’s all about finding the right one.

The next question is, what to do? How do you get inspired? What should I draw? That’s a good question. Like any hobby, one can always look at the pros. Instagram and Pinterest have really become a great way to see other peoples’ creations. When it comes to fashion, if you have favored designers, you get inspired from their works. Anything can be inspiration for a garment. For me, there has always been a fantasy-like element to my designs. I love couture, it’s truly a special art. I love nature as well. This collection I drew was inspired from a bird, a crow. Then I played around with the idea of feathers on the body. And my product ended up being something from an Alexander McQueen collection, but with ballet nuances as well because dance is special to me. Experts say we have close to 50,000 thoughts a day. Of those are ideas. One simple thing can become a door if we want it to be. So, my best advice to any new artist is that starting off small is perfectly fine. Just try things out. Everyone will always be in a different walk in life when it comes to their creative skills. So, use others for inspiration and don’t compare yourself. There is always an outlet that’s right for you. Happy crafting everyone.
