DO NOT BRING THIS BACK
Just got home from a weeklong trip to NYC and LA, and I’m probably a little sick right now and jetlagged so guess who’s staying on the couch for two days THIS LADY RIGHT HERE
Thank you to everyone who liked the dress I made, with special shoutouts to daveeagle, drparisa, baihu13, vag-badger, cortexiphankid47, virusq, succubot9000, and flutiebear (I think that’s everyone!) for your really nice comments :) It felt nice to get back in the sewing saddle! I’m not sure if I’ll be attempting any more garments in the near future, but I’m glad this one was a hit, both online and with my family at Easter lunch.
Also yes I’m still not cosplaying just a reminder.
Also, I just want to say that I’m really, really, REALLY excited for Dragon Age: Inquisition, and ain’t nothin’ gonna break my stride. So excited for them to reveal more about the game and characters, and to finally play it in October :)
Sorry for the delay in answering this — I am notoriously bad at answering really nice asks because I get flustered and never know how to answer, haha. Traveling also makes it a bit harder for me to answer asks and reliably be online, and on that note, I want to answer people’s replies on my last post but I think that’s going to have to wait until I’m back on a computer and not just on my iPad, haha
Thank you!!! :) It was, admittedly, a lot of fun — except for the parts that were awful, of course. But I met a lot of really awesome people and had some crazy adventures, and pushed myself artistically in a way that I had never really done before. It was definitely worth it to me in that respect, and if people enjoyed watching that process and the resulting final products, then I can only be glad that we all had a bit of fun there.
(of course, the internet was rarely privy to me sobbing at 1 AM and threatening to burn everything. that was definitely one of the not-fun parts)
I am most certainly journeying forth, and … yeah. Hopefully others will find some joy in my new ventures, because I’m certainly finding joy in them. :)
I made a dress! Mom bought some handwoven fabric when she was in Peru last year and thought it’d be a perfect base for a sewing project. I kept putting it off, but then decided the colors would be gorgeous for Easter. Still needs a lining and a few other adjustments, but for my first garment, I’m proud!
Easter nails! I did an alternating pattern with Julep Shannon and Farrah, without topcoat to keep the silky, semi-matte sheen intact. Really digging this one :)
Actual mechanic: that is awesome
Oh no! I hope that her treatment is either doing well or that she’s (I presume it was cancer) cancer-free now :(
Well SOMEONE hasn’t seen the romance version of the Tali date in the Citadel DLC…
A+ reference my friend
And now we all know the truth, though I am still privately hoping that you actually met a Quarian today. Maybe just a little.
Oh my god Dave you can’t just leave it at that
Like, was she adorakable with a cute accent? Was she some kinda engineer or mechanic and like to babble about building things? Did she have a weak immune system? Did she sing showtunes to confess her love? Was she the girl from the stock image photo? Was she maybe actually an alien in a suit? Did you have a hub conversation where you asked her about her people?
WE NEED DETAILS
Oh my god that is adorable 8D
Of course, because I’m a 90s kid, my mind also jumped to Baby Tali flushing things down a toilet FOR SCIENCE like Plucky Duck
"omnitool go down da hooooooole"
Thank you! :))))))))))
To answer your question…not so much this year. Traveling to and attending cons was definitely an expense that I decided to cut for the time being, especially since I wasn’t sure how long I’d be unemployed after my contract ended (spoiler: still unemployed :I). I’m definitely aiming for PAX Prime since it’s a local con for, and possibly also GGC as well, so if anyone was planning on going to either of those cons, there’s a chance I’ll see you there! (And if you’re ever up in Seattle, for a con or otherwise, please, PLEASE hit me up—we can DEFINITELY grab coffee! I know some really great places!)
Next year will kind of depend on my real life schedule, I think. I’ve enjoyed the fact that I’ve been able to take some weekend trips to see friends/family in lieu of conventions, so I may do more of that. Or maybe my vacation time will be non-existent with whatever my job ends up being. Next year is still pretty far away!
