Thank you! So much plain ol’ stockinette, the only thing vaguely fancy about them is the reinforced heel, and the under-foot gusset, but I’m enjoying knitting them all the same. Letting the colourway do all the work!
Nyeeeeowm! Second sock is going so much faster, for once! No second sock syndrome for me~
Huehuehue forgot to share this dumb header thing I made for my facebook page the other day.
Con season is fast approaching (well, I suppose we’re in the middle of it, really - I’ve been to one about a month ago - but I have two more ahead), and I’m making two costumes for London MCM Comic Con, so I’ll be posting a fair bit of WIPs probably. I post them here too, but I guess they might be easier to keep track of on facebook, where you don’t have to dig through all the reblogs ;)
Although I do tag all my cosplay and other creative endeavours “my stuff" here, for ease of access!
A metric tonne of nice photos of several CATS and also Rabbit+Spine should hopefully be incoming near the end of October, once I get back home from London~
I’m 4 followers away from 900, what the frick.
HAHAHA now I’m 6 followers away. I swear every time I get a new follower I also lose one. The number keeps hovering around 895. Up two, then down three, etc.
Man, I really need to figure out how to rat proof my living room, so the boys can freerange. My main concern is electrical wires, because they’ve already proven that they enjoy chewing them. I think I can shield some of them with plates of plexiglass (or a cheaper alternative they can’t chew through), but not everything. They don’t seem interested in duct tape (I’ve wrapped the surviving fairy light wire by my bed with duct tape), so I might just try that. HMM.
Let’s check in on the decadent, completely inedible, yet perfectly wearable shoes from The Shoe Bakery (previously featured here). The Orlando, Florida-based company is run by Chris Campbell, who loves both shoes and sweets so much that he decided to combine them in the form of outrageously tantalizing ice cream, cake and donut-themed footwear.
If you’ve got a specific dessert and shoe combination in mind, Campbell happily accepts custom orders. Each mouthwatering pair of Shoe Bakery shoes takes about 3-6 weeks to design, create and ship. Prices range from $200 to $400 US, which should provide you with all the more incentive to refrain from trying to eat them.
Visit The Shoe Bakery’s website to check out more of their enticingly iced footwear.

In 1888 actress Ellen Terry performed the role of Lady Macbeth at London’s Lyceum Theatre while wearing an awesome green gown bedecked with the 1,000 sloughed-off wings of the jewel beetle. It quickly became one of the most celebrated costumes of the Victorian era, immortalized in a portrait painted by John Singer Sargent.
126 years is a long time and over the years Dame Terry’s dress experienced all sorts of wear and tear and numerous alterations. But after 1,300 hours of painstaking work over and £50,000 ($81,000) in expenses, this magnificent costume has been restored to its original glory.
Work began on the gown two years ago after a successful fundraising campaign, but restoring the beetle wings wasn’t the most difficult task. “We had collected the beetle wings that had fallen off over the years,” says Paul Meredith, house manager at Smallhythe Place
, where the dress now resides, “so that the conservator was able to reattach many of the originals, plus others that had been donated to us—1,000 in total.” The restoration team patched the 100 or so broken wings using small pieces of Japanese tissue and wheat starch paste.

Oh my god the notes on this, Pepper I’m so proud of you~
Ok so…..I have my mom
I have emperorshark, fucking MAGIC, and cheese dip and chips.
I… actually can’t remember if Portal or WoW was the last thing I played, so either a portal gun or a crossbow. Not too shabby! I’m currently eating cheese doodles and chocolate though, not exactly the most nutritional apocalypse food :P

Go on, say it. Most people do.
Experimenting a little! Haven’t diluted the dye as much as I normally do!

Printer scanner yes, I need one too. Have you found an affordable one?
this one: http://www.elgiganten.dk/product/pc-tablets/printer-scanner/PIXMAMG2450/canon-pixma-mg-printer-mg2450-aio
at 222kr it’s the cheapest one i’ve found! which is very, very affordable, so yeah. getting that. :D it seems like it does all the same things as my old one did (and takes up less space doing it), and seeing as i don’t need to print or scan in crazy resolutions or anything, i’m ok with this.
Hell yes. I’mma order this once my new visa card arrives next week. My old one well and truly crapped itself, but I’ve had it for like a decade and it was a pretty cheap little thing (I think possibly mum found it in Føtex or somesuch) to begin with, so.
I don’t print or scan an awful lot, but it’s good to have on hand for printing tickets and whatnot. Had to go to the library today to print out the dispute form I need to send to the bank! Hurgh.
