Just another post

Stress is definitely getting the better of me. I had two articles due for Costume Maker Magazine by the today and I barely got them in yesterday with an hour to spare. I wrote three articles for the upcoming issue (due out in Nov!) hopefully all will be used. I haven’t gotten an e-mail back from the girl I submit it to so the last two I submitted may have been nixed. The first I wrote was easy enough, the second was not much harder, but the last one I wrote was a real pain. And I’m not talking I hate the topic pain, it was a I don’t know where to go with it, its such a broad topic that I can’t hope to touch on all of it in one article but I can sum it all up in one sentence hard, if that makes any sense. Anyway, it’s done now, I’ll post as to what’s finally put in the magazine.

Yes people that is my playstaton right now. See I got this bright idea that I was going to paint my playstation red. Not just a dull red but a shiny metallic red. So I had the fiancée take the playstation apart so I could paint it, mind you I can only do one piece at a time cause I still want to be able to play. It still works in this form, it just looks really really really pathetic.

Lets see for Nariko I have this done so far:

Circlet- needs on small piece, then another coat of gold and sealent

Hairsticks- need lighter swirls painted on then done

Top- in pattern needs cut out, sewn, and painted

Skirt- in same condition as the top

Bloomers- still need to be found

Leg warmers- still need to be cut out, sewn, and painted

Tabi socks- in the same condition as the bloomers

Sandels- painted, need one more coat and sealent

Cape- needs fabric and to be made

Sword- probably won’t get done

Saw 3:10 to Yuma today. I enjoy westerns so I enjoyed this, most of the time I was watching the horses as the story isn’t really hard to keep up with. It was still enjoyable though, a definite change of pace from the constant action I’m used to seeing. Anyway, I have a book to write and one to read. ^_^
