09:14 am - And because I'm in spam mode today
Which is part of the reason I haven't been posting much. I'm working full time while looking for another job, studying part time for Honours in Criminology, running a committee, training circus 3 times a week, and trying to finish at least one costume this year. In between that there's not a lot of time for thinking about making interesting blog posts.
I got an A for my first assignment which made me happy because it was a book review - which I've never done before - and after 2 years of not doing academic writing I felt a lot like I'd forgotten how to do it.
Have a picture of all the expanding foam stuff that will go into the finished Death costume:
This doesn't include the scythe blade. We have: 10 x bones for wings, scythe handle, 10 x finger bones, 3 x skulls, face for belt, 2 x skull faces for pauldron, ribcage thingy, and 7 x bones for arms. They don't look like much yet, but that's the culmination of about 25 hours' work.
All of these now have to be masked with masking tape, and then paper mache'd before I can paint them. Then I can get onto the more interesting stuff like ombre dyeing cheesecloth for the hooded shroud, fiddling with EVA foam for the belt, bracers and pauldron, and messing with LEDs for the glowing undies. Fun times..
Has to be ready for October's Auckland Armageddon. I'm entering the comp as part of a Darksiders group. I've never grouped before and have no idea what I'm doing.
Because that's basically how I live my life.
