Lucille Ball in the 1943 film Du Barry Was a Lady. It was for this movie that her hair was dyed its famous red shade (“Tango Red”). Critics were quick to call her “Technicolor Tessie” as they raved that no actress had looked so beautiful in color.

charlottemclaggen:

A beautifully done interpretation of the Slytherin dorms.

The pool of water/ceiling light is based on the idea of an aristocratic Roman impluvium/compluvium. Gryffindor has a furnace in the center of the dorm rooms, so it seemed like an nice yin-yang effect as Gryffindor=fire and Slytherin=water. I’m not sure if the compluvium would magically let rainwater (and snow, and hail!?) in from the lake above, or not. I think it should.

this is a thing in canada too like all you gotta do is say that youre driving

That’s too much logic for this country. Sounds like Socialist propaganda
