Mind Your Habits [100 icons]  
Divinely inspired and an inspiration throughout history, art, and entertainment -- the many faces of nuns. You may have more in common than you'd think!

I'd wanted to create a post like this for a while and recently these icons insisted on being finished. Also inspired by the discovery of a discarded book on the subject, The Calling: A Year in the Life of an Order of Nuns.

Currently a maker @: illustratd & new_vim

That is actually Miyazaki's "Catbus" and in this case a "Kittenbus" specifically. :)

Did I miss this post originally! So sorry :s

I'd been thinking I hadn't seen any icons for a while, what a nice surprise. I've slipped off with 17, 20, 79, 90, 99 and an excuse to go through my icons and have a bit of a refresh.

It reminded me of the Leaping Nuns of St Beryl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GV_A7YeOhfs (Feel free to skip to the actual leaping nuns at about 3:45 ;)

It's a wonderful batch, thank you very much. XD

Quite alright, I sometimes "hide" batches as not to deliberately bother those on my f-list.

I haven't heard the name Beryl since Sailor Moon! Good heavens, Dudley is so young! This has the humor I associate with Monty Python. *grinning*

Having read about the life of Nun's, it's even a bit funnier. Thank you so much for showing that to me!
