These guys inadvertently took a picture of my butt. Look at the last picture on this page. (For those of you who don't know - yes, the majority of that ponytail is my own hair. It took me years to grow it. I'm proud. ^_^) I think my orange leg tattoo looks pretty good, especially considering that I drew it myself. They got me posing, too, on the next page - I'm making a dorky face (which happens occasionally when you're me), but the caption is amusing.

I seriously need to redo my headband (so the big horn sticks out properly), the ends of my gloves (one of the fingers has a giant glop of e-6000 on it, and I want to make big bad awesome claws), and my feet (OWWWWWWWWWW those fuckers HURT) for next year. I should interface the legwarmers, too, so they're conical no matter what angle you view them at. They look fine from the sides (as you can see on that page I just linked to) but oddly narrow from the front. I haven't been doing much costuming stuff lately, but at least I found a piece of wood for Rando's Xiahou Dun sword (I totally lucked out and came across a random 12"x48" strip of 1/8" plywood at Nittany Line - it was the exact size of my pattern and the perfect thickness) and (as I sort of mentioned) made a pattern for said sword. I need to soak the wood and flatten it before I can do anything, though. Bleh. Perhaps I should start working on my pattern for my claw arm guards. Goddamn it I need to get my rear in gear...

Sorry about that. It was indeed a nutty weekend (and my totally passing out on Saturday night didn't exactly give me much opportunity to socialize, either).

On a random-update sort of note: that 150-180 degree click in my left shoulder is gone, and I recently found and worked on trigger points on the top of my shoulder blades. They're gone too...as is the long-standing weird spot (it wasn't painful - it just felt wrong in a way I couldn't really articulate) on the inner edge of my left shoulder blade. I think that most of my upper-body troubles are nearly gone. w00t for that. I did have to take a week off from working out (I also had a nagging leg strain), but I should be able to go back this week. Weeeeeeeee.

i happen to know that you can't fix your costume, cause it's still in a box in my garage!

Hey, look what I did.

And some schmuck already ganked 'Jewlicious' so I've had to bastardise it. ::pouts:: Ah well.
