i was looking up historically accurate clothing as a bit of art inspiration and found the online museum of saudi arabian costume.
there’s a bunch more gems just like these and they’re all so beautiful and unique. there’s also great information about the clothing, too, such as how they were made, who wore them, what fabrics were used, what the different parts of the costumes were called, etc. just a really fun and informative site and i thought i would share my find.
Hi, everyone. So, I need your help.
For the past few months, my jaw has been seriously hurting and causing terrible migraines. I figured it was about time to go get it checked out, and the x-ray showed that my jaw has gotten misaligned, which likely happened while I was tubing this summer and injured it. At the time I thought it was only a little bruised and the pain would go away, but it’s been three months and it’s only gotten worse.
I’m going to need surgery on it, and they want me to come in ASAP on October 4th. The total cost of the procedure is $3,100, but insurance is only covering $2,000 of that, so I need to pay $1,100 of my own money. They won’t do a payment plan for anything under $5,000, and my parents are too strained financially right now to help. My income is only $50 a week and I have a limit of $500 on my credit card, so unless I want to wipe my savings account clean and skip a few meals, I need to figure out a way to raise that money in two weeks.
If this wasn’t a health issue with a deadline, I definitely wouldn’t consider donations and would just rely on commissions/finding a second job. But the longer I wait to go in for surgery, the greater a chance there is of the misalignment growing worse or causing other damage. I really, really hate the idea of asking for donations, it makes me insanely uncomfortable and I don’t like relying on other people financially. But I also need to eat. So it’s a matter of choosing between my pride or my health, and pride only counts for so much.
As such, I would be unbelievably grateful for any help that people are willing to lend. I can’t offer much in terms of rewards, but I’ve come up with a small system of rewards that I’ll be able to manage with my current financial situation. Even if it’s not a lot, I want to be able to offer something to anyone who donates, if only so I feel a little less guilty. Rewards include cosplay wallpaper downloads, thank-you notes with stupid doodles, and plushie commissions.
Please check out this page for all the information. Donations can be made through PayPal here. If you have any questions about anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask me! And even if you can’t donate, a signal boost is greatly appreciated. Thank you all so, so much for taking the time to read this. <3
Signal boosting for a LOVELY lady who needs some help paying for a very necessary surgery. Please lend a hand if you can!
