Almost done with the brigandine! I didn’t put enough glue on the sleeve bits, so I’ve gotta go back and fix some of them (as you can see,) then glue the front bottom pieces on. (Gotta do some seam trimming, too, I’ve still got some threads hanging out.)
Then it’s time to FINALLY finish the velvet tunic. Then it’s on to the belt…
I almost went to Fanime, then I remembered that I have no vacation time and I’m broke
l’ll let this guy have fun for me xD
Good things about today:
Bought all the things at Fresh and Easy, now have tons of food (and Memorial Day meal stuffs.)
My zucchini plants appear to be resurrecting.
Found my fauxfur that I knew I had somewhere, I need it for my Thorin costume.
Forgetting to switch the record player up from 33 1/3 speed when playing a 45 never gets old.
The Mildly Irritating:
Failed at replacing my UCR Alumni licence plate bracket back on my car.
Found a nick in my windshield.
Am running way behind on costume making, so I’m skipping ScotsFest. Hopefully next year!
IE Arthritis Walk next weekend! Time to find my t-shirt!
Eurovision this year was great, I like almost every song, and some are definite keepers!
My favorites: France, Romania, Denmark, Iceland, Ukraine, Croatia, and Greece. :)

I spent $2700 on this machine back in 2005. I suppose it was time for some issues to start popping up. I need to hold on until after AX, though, I need my baby! xD
(Also, I have a sneaking suspicion that repairs are going to be $200+)
(Current issues: All lights are out (not a bulb issue, there’s a short somewhere.) and the Reverse button doesn’t work anymore. Luckily, it’s still sewing fine, and I have a Fix button that auto makes a knot, so I can hold on. I don’t trust my Kenmore to sew through the vinyl I need to work on after I get the brigandine and velvet tunic done.
It’s bloody annoying being shy. I’ll spend a whole evening at a party asking everyone else about themselves. I’m not being self-deprecating; it’s because I’m too shy to talk about myself. So people come away from the evening actually having learnt nothing about me.(x)
I think you broke my ears ;)
Okay comics folks I just picked up the Avengers Assemble Age of Ultron tie-in from last week and YOU GUYS A HIJABI LADY SUPERHERO IS NOW CAPTAIN BRITAIN WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS
Oh awesome. Fazia Hussian has been great in everything I’ve ever seen her in. I really hope the appearances of Captain Britain and Fazia might mean a revival of their superteam.
a Muslim woman is now Captain Britain? Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
Let’s talk about this right now and how brilliant it is.
I wasn’t going to say anything but I facepalm whenever I see this on my dash.
Which is a lot, unfortunately.
That’s a damn good photoshop. I’d seen Steve grabbing sitwell before, but it was a different photo.
Ditto. xD Ah well, wishful thinking for a moment was nice~
