14th October 2010: Step 1: Make the thing. Step 2: Hack it to pieces C8 Given I got mugged, I now have no iPhone to take snazztastic progress pics with. Hm. At any rate, I've had two evenings of work so far and I've managed to pleasantly surprise myself with what's gotten done. My red fluffy ... leotard jumpsuit thing is tacked and fitting, so I'll just sew asap and HEY PRESTO DONE.
Indeed, having made the thing fit me, I then had fun cutting holes in it, cleaving off a leg and generally making a mess with tufts of fluff.
Started heavily abusing my so far rectangular manskirt, soon to be mangled asscape, with scissors. Next comes the fire (no, really, fire) and fabric paint. If I have time I'll make a few extra layers for the manskirt to make it bulkier and generally more fabulous.
About to go do me some poofy sleeves/half shirt thing. Of course, that'll largely get ripped to pieces as well...
Oh and of course, once they get here, I'll stick my feathers to everything in a great, cataclysmic mess. It's going to be glorious C8
