Gobble gobble, y’all – it’s almost Turkey Day!
As we all know, this upcoming holiday is a day where we gather with loved ones to stuff our faces and be merry with laughter and good memories. It’s a lot like every other holiday, except there’s no limit on the feast! #GetchaSweatsGameOn
When I think of family in the DC Universe, I – of course – think of our lovely community here, and how welcoming and warm you’ve all been to me this year. It’s only been a few short months since my arrival on the DC team, but I already feel so at home here. Obviously I could go on for a hyperbolic amount of time about how grateful I am to have met all you guys, but let’s get to the other family I hold dear in my heart.
The Teen Titans family! (TTF!)
The very definition of “found family”, Teen Titans has kept an iron grip on my heart since I was a kid. Even now, I go back quite often to re-consume the series whenever I feel like I’m missing them. I’d say their interpersonal bonds with one another had a huge impact on how I perceived my own relationships growing up – I always wanted to have my friends’ backs and keep them safe following in the TT footsteps (though I can’t say Stankball was ever a unanimously-celebrated sport in my social circle, sadly).
Since I’m very grateful for my fave fictional friend-fam, I’ve decided to make them the center of my Pinterest moodboard for the holiday.
Hold up, Static. What the heck is a moodboard?
Putting it simply, moodboards are a series of graphics that are used as a way of capturing the atmosphere surrounding a particular subject to briefly immerse the viewer into the “mood” of said subject. Kind of like collages! Which is why there’s no right or wrong way to make one. You could make one entirely out of relevant quotes, or organize one by a certain color palette, or just fill it up with pics of things that represent the subject point-blank. It’s your board!
How do I make a moodboard? How do I post it here?
Personally, I find the easiest way to make moodboards is through Pinterest. For those who aren’t familiar with the site, it’s a hub for images/videos that can be added to “boards” you create based on personal interests or whatever you’re particularly searching for. Many people use it for the sole purpose of creating moodboards, so there’s plenty of stuff to work with there if you’re not inclined to create one from scratch.
That said, you’re also free to make one through any editing program if you don’t wanna go about making a whole Pinterest account! Just paste the graphic(s) here as you would any other image. If you’re doing a Pinterest board, feel free to drop the link to it, or provide a preview screenshot!
And finally, for those who don’t wanna do either of those things but still want to participate, you’re more than welcome to create a moodboard of your own here by posting any pictures you may find relevant and just sort of talking about your thought process on them. (Ex. post a photo of masks and talk about how that may relate to “Crazy” Jane.) Otherwise, feel free to just openly discuss your thoughts on the topic at hand.
