"I feel so fortunate for that scene. It was written in the script as, She goes underwater and distorts her face, and I saw that as, She goes underwater and loses her shit. She was able to be vulnerable for the first time without anyone seeing. Being Hawaiian, I took her to be a water baby, so the water was very comforting for her. And then being an actor, it was selfishly my own therapy session.”

I mean, that scene is word-for-word from the book, so don’t blame the movie! :) Yes, Gus is super pretentious at the start of the story. it’s a character flaw.
Gus wants to have a big and important and remembered life, and so he acts like he imagines people who have such lives act. So he’s, like, says-soliloquy-when-he-means-monologue pretentious, which is the most pretentious variety of pretension in all the world.
And then his performative, over-the-top, hyper-self-aware pretentiousness must fall away for him to really connect to Hazel, just as her fear of being a grenade must fall away. That’s what the novel is about. That is its plot.
Gus must make the opposite of the traditional heroic journey—he must start out strong and end up weak in order to reimagine what constitutes a rich and well-lived life.
Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie.
(Standard acknowledgement here that I might be wrong, that I am inevitably defensive of TFIOS, that it has many flaws, that there’s nothing wrong with critical discussion, and that a strong case could be made that I should not insert myself into these conversations at all.)
Ladies and gentlemen I present you this perfect human being, Sebastian Stan.
Oh man! I’m really excited about the idea of people dressing up as Nimona so I threw together a really quick guide to her outfit.
Her tunic is really basic. It would probably be pretty easy to make this, or even cut down an oversized T-shirt, or just wear some kind of jumper dress.
Underneath that she wears a chain mail shirt. This part would probably be the hardest part to make, since actual chain mail would be insaaaaane, but I think if it were me I would look for some kind of party medieval soldier costume - I think they have this scrunchy silver metallic fabric that they try to pass off as chain mail? (Like on this uncanny fellow.) That or paint a pattern on like a gray T-shirt. Really only the sleeves and a small sliver at the bottom needs to show.
Her collar thing is made of metal, but for a costume I’d probably either make it out of cardboard and tin foil, or paint some fabric.
Nimona’s boots hit just below her knees and are turned down at the top like pirate boots. Really any kind of brown boots would be fine though. She has leather gauntlets and a belt that are made of the same material. She has one ring piercing in her right ear, an eyebrow piercing on the left, and three rings in her left ear.
Cool cool cool. Hope that helps you/anyone who wants to cosplay! I don’t know if anyone actually will but it would super cool.
What a great message. I wish all characters were this nice. Does anyone know what this is from?
People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???
that was the point???
like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???
It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?
You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote
Look, sometimes an artist’s just gotta draw cozy domestic AU fanart of their own characters. (I hope you didn’t think I was kidding about getting way too invested in the Gay-Dads-Adopt-a-Baby story.)
This one’s for you, NIMONA readers - thanks for sticking with me this far <3
