Trolls, Textiles, and Final Outcomes

Trolls, Textiles, and Final Outcomes


I don’t have a beverage AHHH There’s no beverage to be had! Thesis check in. Week 2. Get excited 3, 2, 1 AHHH I can see the sun in the distance Like that’s getting brighter *sings the disney tune* I can go the distance Oh boy ok that was a mistake This is live right? We should set up the livestreaming that would be hilarious Like as we’re working Just have the livestream going Ya they would say mean hurtful comments like “that sucks!” Ya that would be really good it would be very motivating Hi viewers! Welcome to “Women Who Kill” On ID Discovery Here we are, with Megs And my plans to kill Maybe don’t put that on youtube huh? It’s a joke! It’s a joke Great (sarcastically) Now here’s all the ways you can kill a person Just kidding! It’s Thesis Check In It’s fine! They know we’re kidding We’re kidding. This is Thesis Check In With JM and Megs It’s true it’s not on ID Discovery No we’re not cool enough to be on ID Discovery Does ID Discovery still exist? Yes ID Discovery still exists! Ok look you say it so emphatically like I’m supposed to know I mean I don’t watch it anymore but I loved ID Discovery This is ponsored This is ponsored by Investigation Discovery I wish The first thing we want to talk about Is how awful the editing process was for the previous video That you all witnessed last week So our first video I’m like I’m not as emphatic about it as I once was Because I have calmed down significantly since the events that transpired So let me start off by saying it took 10 hours And that’s not because I’ve never edited a video before no it is not It’s because I edited it twice and BOTH TIMES imovie decided to like just where did they go? It didn’t save it Where’d the file go? It didn’t save it it just disappeared into like the clouds I don’t think she had enough memory on her computer Ya that’s true I’m also still trying to work on getting captions For the first video because It’s a lot more difficult than I anticipated And so those will probably be up later throughout the weeks Um we’re also going to try having little shorter videos And then maybe smaller clips throughout the week of like Bloopers, or like different topics Work space videos Ya exactly Like things that don’t really make sense in like the editing process of this video Because we ramble quite a bit Which I know people seem to enjoy As we do ourselves So we’re going to have little clips of that as well But I would also like to take this time to thank our new subscribers Thank you for liking and subscribing It means the world to us No seriously thank you for subscribing Thank you for watching Please keep up with this series It will be really interesting we promise we won’t have 26 minute videos every week Although they will probably still be a little long Ya but we have that long form content We have the short form content Exactly we have every kind of content Ok All the content Maybe just getting a little carried away All the contents Ok… Uh, like and subscribe Ya I realize you are probably supposed to say that at the end of the video But I thought I’d just sneak it in the intro Well we’re going to forget it we don’t do it That’s true And I would like to apologize in advance For my like snifflyness As I have suffered An allergy invasion Attack Attack, Assult Yes all of the things An assault on your nose truly It really is Like I’m wearing a ton of makeup right now It’s been rough for all of us Cause underneath there it’s just red Really rough It really is Really rough…. We also did body checks this time It’s true we did So there’s no white fuzz in my hair Because I know that that was.. Oh wait is that is that some white fuzz right there? BYE So you wanna tell the people what this installment is going to be about this week Jena? Well uh our big thesis topic is reviewing what our final presentation is going to look like And what the final outcomes are Air quotes around “final presentation” Yes And then I think you have a couple fun topics That are probably in the video description already Oh ya Where should we start Megan? I feel like we should start with Thesis let’s just dive right into the uncertainty Ya let’s just dive in Oh and also we’re going to show you a few things we’ve been working on this week Cause I actually do have some I’m wearing mine She has it in the distance Where’s the enthusiasm Megan? Someone has to be optimistic and it’s certainly not going to be me HUG TIME Oh god mistake I made a mistake You just need to find your happiness Jena and that’s what we’re here for Everyone has a little bit of happiness inside you*Jena groaning the the background* Oh my goddddd And I’m here to help you find it Branch *sings the trolls song* Everybody, move your hands and feel united So in case it wasn’t clear we saw the Trolls movie Oh my god it was SO CUTE M: It was so good J: It was pretty precious That’s also why there’s going to become pictures in our thumbnail Because it just truly encapsulates us It’s was very soft Oh yes also I mean it has something to do with thesis kind of Cause it included lots of knitting, yarn, and felt And embroidery And scrapbooking Yes! And scrapbooking It was like our thesis came to life Pop-up books Oh my god yes So yes we just figured we would let the world know about this film that was about our friendship And about the true colors Oh boy That it encapsulates I am Poppy and she is Branch Both: In case it wasn’t clear But yes that explains why those promo photos are there Has it ever happened to you where one day you wanna watch a youtube video Yes And then the next day it’s gone? And I’m just like WHATT?? It’s the saddest story It really is! All the anime music videos that I loved They’re gone now How will I ever listen to Linkin Park’s classic song, set to Naruto? And there you have it Ok well lit’s kind of hard to see what we’re wearing right now That’s true I’m wearing a dress from one of my favourite brands Lazy Oaf And it has a bunch of dancing bears and they’re doing a little can-can And it says “Lazy” on it And it’s like a sweater dress And I really like it cause it’s a dress AND it’s a sweater What more could you need And Jena will show you what she’s wearing I’m wearing a top but I’ll get there eventually She’ll get there. I didn’t make mine so it’s less impressive So our final outcomes Uh do you want to start? Or should I start? Um I don’t know did you go first last on the last thing? Nope Ok then go first Wait should we talk about like What Parsons wants final outcomes to be first? I mean didn’t we kind of touch on that in the last video? A little bit I guess we can give them a quick review But ya no cause we saved a lot of it for this video Ok alright so you want me to quick recap that? And then you can do it? Yes Our curriculum has changed a lot Did I mention that? It’s in the last video right? Yes Ok so anyway so the curriculum change means that our final outcomes for this last project have changed Um and they’re essentially self proposed now So whatever you want your final outcome to look like is what you say you want it to look like And then basically Which can literally be anything Ya basically your professors just say yes that’s acceptable Or no that’s not acceptable Which is cool, but also Intimidating Ya and just leaves us in kind of a weird Weird endless state of confusion Ya because it’s like The tyranny of choice you know? Like you have so much ahead of you and yet it’s like Uhm which one do I pick? But uh ya it’s also theres We will find out soon though So stay tuned because there is an “Ultimate Senior Meeting” that’s happening Where not only will we be finding out what we’re doing for our final thesis Uh so will our professors So we all find out at the same time Ya I kind of don’t really know anything about this It sounds like they had to kind of like set some definite standard Well we’ll all be finding out at the same time which is just strange and seems Ya I’m sure we will have a fun update video about that Oh ya… We should just film the meeting Livestream from the meeting Oh don’t mind us it’s nothing just continue It’s just thesis check in Shhh don’t worry about it just keep talking So that’s kind of interesting and also a little bit weird That like no one in charge really knows whats happening But I mean Hey it’s all cool I’m just scared that it’s going to be something really intense that we like should have been preparing for all this time I mean look that’s always the way isn’t it? But it’s just scary Ok so why don’t we talk about the fun final outcomes we have outlined for ourselves Ok yes Cause you have some cool ideas As you all are aware I’m doing I’m doing fairytales It’s true And for my final outcome I don’t know if, I touched into this a little bit I said that I wanted um a few physical garments for people to see from each section Neverland and The Enchanted Forest/Woods And um possibly some individual textile samples I also had the idea, I really want prints to be the focus So I was thinking of maybe like an installment piece Where it’s like a piece like a dress that has only my print on it Would be standing in like a life-size background of just my print So it would look like she’s kind of blending into her surroundings Which would be really cool And then I also got the idea because book are such a popular Not popular but they’re such a relevant and like popular.. ya popular They’re a popular thing when you think of fairytales So I want to incorporate a book somehow And I think I’m going to do that with some of my sketches Like have a little pop-up book So that when you like open it my sketch pops up And it’s like Hi I’m here! yay! So basically if you’ve seen the Trolls movie Yep. Yes Yes similar to poppy’s scrapbook Where it’s like dee-dee “We did it YAY!!” Oh my god you should totally have it so that when you flip the pages it says stuff It spits glitter?? Oh… that also I was going to say an audio component would be cool *deep creepy voice* Welcome to the woods Ya. Ya Jena um before we get to your thesis topic what flavor of gatorade are you drinking today? Ok well look this is honesty/corrections corner Corrections corner! Ya true I am drinking Arctic Chill Which is also the flavor I was drinking last week Which I miss-identified as Arctic Blitz And we’re, we’re sorry we got a lot of complaints about that Arctic blitz is- And we were just overwhelmed -is a light green Arctic Chill Which makes sense because of the chill vibes of the flavor! Arctic Chill is clear That is what I’m drinking Green is Arctic Blitz OH ok Clear is Arctic Chill And I knew it was Arctic Chill because I described the chill vibes But I mis-said blitz It was right there in the name It literally is But also so I’m enjoying it I’m enjoying it in this cute mug which I also enjoyed it in last week Who got you that mug Jena? I don’t really remember It was probably a friend of mine I don’t know *whispers* It was me *silently* It was Yes I’m drinking some tea as per usual This is my favorite- White Tea, Blueberry, and Elderflower Because it reminds me of London Which is also where my mug is from It’s not from London but it has London places on it And one of my best friends Nicole got it for me So hi Nicole! Where’d you find this tea Megan? Found it at Home Goods!! Did you find it at Home Goods? HOME GOODS! Yes I did Jena took me to Home Goods for the first time HOME GOODS! What if we got Home Goods to sponsor this video and they sent us like random beautiful surprises?! Ok can we just focus on getting me a Gatorade sponsorship first? But I want Home Goods… I want goods for the home! Home Goods is so good That took you a minute ok So Jena what is your final outcome that you are hoping for? Um so right now my final outcome is um to set myself up in a studio space somewhere And I’m trying to like find somewhere to be Uh like right now. I’m emailing a bunch of different places And like looking at a bunch of different places But um ya I’m going to be set up in a studio space And there’s going to be a company like website Where you can find I think I’m changing the name and I’m stealing it from this girl in my class Casey so thanks so much Casey you’re great Um and it’s going to be called “All The Elements” Because basically what the websites going to do is it’s going to provide you with all the elements you need to make everything on it Ohhh So you can either buy the garments outright Or you can like come in at different levels and like do it yourself kind of thing And then you can also visit me in the studio and do a workshop and make something with me So fans out there if you want to meet Jena That’s true Sign up now Tickets are available on- There are no tickets -brownpapertickets My contact info is on my website Which is in the link In the description box Oww She’s pushing me out of the frame! Basically I’ll be installing a studio You can make stuff with me You can buy things It’s going to be great Alright so Jena show us what you made Ok Time to model! Yes *sings* You better work, COVERGIRL! Work it girl, do a twirl! Do your thing So maybe I’ll just go And smile for the cameras! I’m going to do a fun interpretive dance Ok Ya it’s going to be great So it’s a crop top Uh it’s got some fun wool embroidery on it and it’s going to be felted but I haven’t felted it yet And felting is when the wool like sticks together Ooh look at that It’s got a little fun twirl up there Ooo beautiful Stunning Girl work, workkk Work it girl Oh don’t trip on the chair Anyway ya it’s very similar to the dress I was wearing last week And there’s eventually going to be better photos and stuff on my website Um alright so I did some more fabric manipulations which I’m really excited about I’m in screenprinting which you kind of saw with the cape I was talking about which there will be more pictures linked below uh hopefully Um so for my second section I’m doing Neverland And because I’m a true Tried and true Disney geek I love watching the Tinkerbell movies And there’s an opening sequence where it talks about how fairies are born Oh boy Well I mean it’s what inspired this! Uhhh I know It’s so essentially- It’s the children Well when, the story that’s written there is When the first baby laughed for the first time the laugh split into a thousand pieces and that was the beginning of fairies Which is just a beautiful sentence already which I love And in the movie- Beautiful is certainly one word for it -in the movie that’s done through a dandelion flower that like.. or dandelion, ya uh I don’t know are they a weed? Dandelion puffs? They are a weed Ok yes dandelion puffs Ya with the seed Yes So the seed blows, and it blows all the way to Neverland And then lands in like the little seed and then they sprinkle pixie dust over it and then she like emerges and she’s like “Hello? And she’s born! So cute! But I’ve also become really fascinated with dandelions So I made like a dandelion print That I hand-printed myself in screenprinting I’ll just get behind there J: Oh look at those stunning seeds so much seeds Now this one’s a little blurry I don’t know if you can see it on the camera but it’s a little blurry because the fabric is a little more fuzzy so that came out too But then I also tested- Because that’s like a Georgette right? -ya I also tested it on this fabric that you can see in our background! Which I’m going to make something out of and I actually like that one a lot better This is the other one that I printed sorry to block your face Jena M: I feel like you can see our faces behind this J: I think you can This is the one that I printed and it’s more sheer and ya I really like it So that’s what I worked on this week You did a good job And I’m also- thank you! I think yours came out really good too and I’m excited to see it felted! And I kind of like right now it’s weird like our things could go together really well cause yours kind of feels like a woodland kind of like fairy type creature Like a tree Ya so I could definitely see the two of ours like Joining together Oh oh like us Oh we’re so precious Friendship! Ok that ‘s enough *sings* friendshippp Okay What else did we want to talk about? I mean those were the big things right? Trolls, fabric- OH! I know what I wanted to talk about! Oh boy TUBBY NEMOS!!! And I just I prayed that you would forget TUBBY NEMOS!! And yet here we are Oh my goshh Ok so I know that it’s a week after Halloween and, or is it a week? Ya it’s exactly a week after Halloween Isn’t it like a week and a, no it’s 6 days? Ok well it’s been a while since Halloween It’s been a while And this costume started surfacing up on Halloween this has nothing to do with our thesis but I just really wanted to talk about it this little costume of a little fat tubby Nemo and it’s like the cutest thing I’ve ever seen And I will find a way to put a picture of it- It’s a child -in the following clip In a Nemo costume there it is! and it’s so cute! it’s just like waddling around doing it’s thing! and it’s little tubby Nemo It’s a child And it’s so cute!! HUGH So ya children in tubby Nemo costumes Waddling around being like “I’m Nemo!” “Where’s my dad?” It think it’s isnt it his dad that’s like where’s Nemo- *deep voice* “I’ll find you son!” Ya but he was in the fish tank like “Where’s my dad!’ Wow. Direct quote from the film thank you Megan Alright so that’s pretty much it for this week we wanted to keep it a little more condensed like Jena said It’s true And just short, to the point, with a little bit of banter in there Synergy we might say Oo!
