Tactical Ninja - What I did on the weekend

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Clothes hacking!

In which I take a top I'd bought online that didn't fit me right so I wouldn't wear it, and turn it into something that I'll probably wear quite a lot.




Because deep down I'm just a damn hippie.


I also stuck bits of leather on to bits of plastic in further development of the Saarebas costume, hung out with my brother, signed up for a contortion class, and spent a warm afternoon/evening playing around doing easy and (often) ungraceful partner acro for secret and nefarious purposes!

Meanwhile, Dr Wheel leaves for his Big US Adventure tomorrow. I have set him the task of finding something cool and famous and taking a photo of himself with it. Surely this should be quite easy in the US! He is going to have all sorts of adventures, including taking a train across the continent. I envy that one quite a lot. He's also going to that thing in the desert, so if you find him there, please give him hugs and smooches for me.

I'll be over here, high on leather glue.

Thanks! What you can't see in the photo is that the hood has a really nice point, which is part of the reason I liked it enough to make the effort. ;-)

By the way, congratulations to Germany on the football thing.

Cool outfit!

I'm going to be in Atlanta this week. If Dr Wheel will be near there, I can take a photo of him for you.

If you had a really good zoom lens, you could.

OK I might be exaggerating. He'll be somewhere in NY.

That's really cute! I wish I had sewing ability to do stuff like that. Hope he has fun in the US. There should be a lot of photo opportunities for him. Did you decide on anything yet?

Not yet - I want to be surprised, but like you say I'm sure he'll find something. ;-) The US is big and picturesque and full of famous things, right?

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are going to the thing in the desert too. They wanted Plato to come, but he hates being hot.

It came out very nice!

I have the opposite problem...everything is so long on me. The tops don't bother me, but I reject a lot of skirts and pants because they are too long.

Oh! I am sure he is well covered with friends but should he find himself wanting for shelter, send him my way! My couch is available.
