Launched last month, Wafrica — Africa plus wa for Japan — has unveiled a range of kimono handcrafted in an array of African cotton fabrics that would seem to be a million miles from the subtle silks more commonly associated with traditional Japanese dress. Yet despite the orange comets and flashes of lightning tearing across a moss-green background, and the tribal swirls in colors that recall the sun-drenched African soil, the prints blend seamlessly into the kimono form before they surprise Japanese shoppers with their foreign origin.
The cultural cocktail is the brainchild of Serge Mouangue, a Tokyo-based concept- car designer for Nissan, who joined forces with Kururi, a Tokyo-based kimono- maker, to produce the traditional Japanese attire in 18 African prints sourced in markets from Nigeria to Senegal.

I love how Dipper tells Mabel that she should calm down a little bit when it comes to her boy-crazy tendencies in the first episode of “Gravity Falls”.
He admits that he knows she’s going through her boy-crazy phase and that she really wants to get a boyfriend while they stay in Gravity Falls, but he is also concerned that she’s taking her obsession a bit too far.
Unlike other siblings that I’ve seen on the Disney Channel, Dipper is the most mature and the most concerned brother that I’ve seen when it comes to his sister’s dating habits. He doesn’t poke fun at her love life and he doesn’t argue with her about her choice in boyfriends. He’s simply concerned that her obsession with finding a boyfriend is going too far and that it might hurt her.
Dipper is a very supportive brother and is always looking out for Mabel; so when she is hunting down a boyfriend, it’s obvious that he’s gonna have his own concerns when it comes to who his sister dates. Because even though he trusts his sister, that doesn’t mean that he trusts the boy she’s dating.
Dipper’s protective nature over Mabel is one of the many reasons why I love Gravity Falls so much. Because his relationship with her is so natural and so loving that It really shows how close they are as siblings.

"There were a lot of issues with GotG that should be addressed and Marvel should work on improving with future movies."
This probably works for so many movies and companies it’s scary.
