Japan’s Princess Mako’s bid to marry her college boyfriend
realities of married life
Japan’s Crown Prince Akishino has stopped short of wholeheartedly embracing his eldest daughter’s wish to marry a commoner, amid impropriety concerns and worries she might struggle financially once out of the royal fold. The 55-year-old prince, who is next in line to the Chrysanthemum Throne, told reporters last month that he “approved” of Princess Mako marrying Kei Komuro, “if that is what they really want”.

Returnal's New Trailer
Its Sci-Fi Weaponry And Combat
Click here to watch embedded media A new trailer for Returnal gives us a look at some of the unique weapons players will use to survive its hostile alien world. With the game only a couple of months away, this marks the first time players have gotten a deep dive into its combat. Returnal blends third-person action with a roguelike structure. Players control Selene, an astronaut who crash-lands on a strange planet controlled by a mysterious time loop. Every time Selene dies, she’s reborn and re-experiences the same events again and again. In roguelike fashion, that also means her inventory starts from scratch with each cycle as well (though some elements persist). Developer Housemarque took to the PlayStation Blog to break down Returnal’s combat, which combines third-person shooting with the studio’s trademark arcade-style action. Base weapons become augmented with various weapon traits that change how they perform, such as exploding shells for the shotgun-like Spitmaw Blaster. Players can stack traits to combine the same effects for “surprising results” in the heat of battle. In total, there are 10 base weapons and 90 weapon traits (with three levels each). Selene can only hold one weapon at a time, however, so players must choose wisely while also experimenting with different loadouts to find suitable combinations. Guns have dual fire modes activated by the Dual Sense controller’s adaptive triggers. Pressing the aim button halfway activates one firing mode and pushing it all the way down triggers the second. This creates a seamless swap between firing modes, which are randomly assigned to guns which each cycle. Other weapons showcased include the Ground Spike, a tool that impales creatures with a massive spike, and the Atropian Blade, a sword that can shatter shields and block projectiles. In terms of non-weapons gadgets, the bittersweet Parasite might be the most unique. This strange organism latches on to Selene and grants extra health with each kill but slain enemies leave pools of harmful acid behind. Returnal features other risk vs rewards elements, such as cursed chests that grants valuable treasure at the expense of being saddled with a negative status ailment, such as taking damage when opening doors. After cutting its teeth with arcade-style games like Nex Machina and Resogun, Returnal is Housemarque’s biggest release yet and it looks to be shaping up quite well. We can’t wait to get our hands on it when it launches March 19 for PlayStation 5 and PC. [Source: PlayStation Blog]...

Zerina Akers’ Thrilling Edit
Black-Owned Vintage Stores — & Includes Rare Patrick Kelly Pieces
In June, when celebrity stylist Zerina Akers — whose clients include Beyoncé and Chloe x Halle — began compiling a list of Black-owned brands for her own styling purposes, she never expected it to become what it is today. Which is: an Instagram account with 204,000 followers that acts as an industry-wide resource for supporting talent in the Black community. “I had created this curated feed, but as I started to follow more people, everything was just so breathtaking that I felt the need to share it,” Akers tells Refinery29 of Black Owned Everything. And she’s just getting started. Next up: an e-commerce site designed to make shopping from Black brands easier than ever. “Initially, I wanted to launch our [Black Owned Everything e-commerce] website right on Black Friday as a way of redefining Black Friday and supporting Black-owned businesses,” Akers says. Due to technical delays exasperated by the pandemic, the timing didn’t work, she explains. “Instead, we decided to change the narrative a bit.” This meant teaming up with digital secondhand and vintage marketplace Thrilling, owned and operated by Shilla Kim-Parker. The duo — who connected when Kim-Parker, a fan of Akers, blindly reached out to the stylist — joined forces to curate an edit that includes strictly vintage items from Black-owned thrift shops available on Thrilling. The collection, which went live on December 11, according to Akers, is inspired by ‘90s hip hop music and the community embodied in it. “It started really with the unity that a lot of women had back then, with different rappers and musicians coming into each other’s videos. Everyone just looked really dope. They were always celebrating and supporting each other,” she says. Akers also wanted to create a collection that felt relevant today, making the ‘90s a perfect fit given how many fashion trends from the era are making a resurgence of late. Think: shoulder bags, leather trenches, non-stretch jeans, and bucket hats. Akers and Kim-Parker, who both have long shopped secondhand, felt it was important to show just how easy and rewarding thrifting a modern, relevant wardrobe can be compared to buying new. “Buying thrift store jackets and changing the sleeves or painting on them — that’s how I discovered my love for fashion,” Akers says. Kim-Parker adds, “You get to own something that — even though there are others in the world — is so hard to find that you want to keep it and cherish it and treat it well. And, because others cherished it, too, allowing it to last all this time, it was able to make it to you.” The edit’s pieces range from a pinstripe Giorgio Armani suit to Vivienne Westwood newspaper-printed sneakers. There are also non-branded vintage items, including a cowl-neck LBD and a retro, collegiate sweater vest. “I was even able to source Patrick Kelly items for the edit, and that alone is such a piece of history,” says Akers. In 1988, Patrick Kelly, a Black fashion designer from Mississippi, became the first American designer to be admitted to the Chambre Syndicale du Prêt-à-Porter, the organization that governs French ready-to-wear. (One of Kelly’s shift dresses is currently on display at the “About Time” fashion exhibit at the Met.) “His pieces are so hard to find,” says Akers. Which makes it that much more incredible that, using Thrilling and its mom-and-pop vintage stores, she was able to source multiple pieces from the late designer. When asked about her thrifting process, both for personal use and work, Akers says she gravitates toward items with unique patterns, colors, and “obviously, vintage designer pieces.” “I tend to buy things that have an interesting design element that I haven’t seen before. Then, even if I don’t wear it — I always thrift things that I can’t wear for a year [due to the weather or something of the like] — when I do put it on, it becomes my new favorite thing. Investing in those pieces is always worthwhile in the end.” Shop the Zerina Akers x Thrilling edit now on Thrilling.com.
