*deflates some more*  
Fuck me fuck me fuck me
I am Ernie's rubber ducky
Kiss me kiss me kiss me kiss me
Let's break out the tits and whiskey

This song is cracktacularly amusing, which is just what I need after yet another stressful day at work. The problem with working at an agriculture company is that everything goes batshit around this time of year, which is when all the growers start planting and getting everything up and running. The recent overhaul of one of our major products didn't help matters any because we'll keep finding random stuff that went fooey and customers will ask for more stuff, and then I put it in and discover that I broke something else and have to stay until quarter to 6 frantically fixing the fruits of my own stupidity. Blergh.

At least I had some fabric store serendipity. I wanted to pick up sew-on interfacing for my leg warmers so they'd stand out in the proper conical shape (fusible doesn't work for fake fur because the fibers don't play well with heat), but I didn't like how the papery stuff was crinkly and white (which would look dumb if I sat down and someone saw the underside of the leg warmer), so I hunted in the remnant bin for cheap black lining fabric. I wound up finding 1 1/2 yards of black fabric interfacing, so now I don't have to deal with an extra layer of fabric. w00t. I bought some chisel-tipped red Sharpies to color said leg warmers with, so my fingers are going to be turning funny colors very shortly. I just want to eat first. Me fungry.

Oh yeah, and I'm ordering clear platform shoes, too, so I can make socklike costume feet with accurate bottoms and not worry about them getting all torn up when walking around the con. (Covering a pair of cheap shoes actually turned out to be trickier than I thought - I was going to have to put a layer of headliner, which is this thin foamy stuff, over the shoe so that its seams didn't show through - and I already know how to make well-fitting sock paws, so that's one less thing for me to figure out.) Rikku actually stands on her toes while in this outfit, so the shoes won't actually look weird with the costume. Yay.
