All the project things I've ever did are done with solely stuff from charity shops and such thrown together!
Is that also considered a project? Lips sealed
That's all I've ever did when it came to outfits and costumes for steampunk,faires and LARPs.
And when it comes to that, I've done several things wich were fun.

  • A post-apocalyptic goblin (some people have seen her photo already,but she's never actually been at any event yet)
  • a steampunk adventurer
  • a steampunk scientist
  • a steampunk goblin(yes,they exist!)
  • a barbarian girl
  • 2 versions of a necromancer
  • a steampunk lady
  • a black,masked being
  • a decora
  • Winston Ulric,of course!
  • several gothic things

And more things to come. I got photos of most things.
Blah.

I love your Goblin! Especially the helmet. The nose and ears make me happy too. Cheesy

I don't think I've seen the Steampunk Goblin though...

All of my clothing is boringly modern or from about 1250AD. I need to branch out.
I love creating outfits but I'm much better at making other things that don't involve fabric. Tongue

*wanders in* the weather is horrid, anyone for some mulled wine??
*Hands Sweetest a heavy earthenware mug of mulled wine*
That'll keep your hands warm while you sip. Smiley

How've you been, dear?

*collapses into chair* Large glass of the mulled elixir would be fabulous.
I have had  a hectic day.
 First thing was going to and setting up the fayre, second thing was dealing with all the other crafters, third was realising that the radio was still in the hallway at home so had to go back for it grrrr, fourth was dealing with a person who decided she didn't like the custom piece that I made for her after we had discussed everything a dozen times and fifth was coming home and finding the fire alarm  playing merry hell as the man of the house had left a pot on and it had boiled dry so the house was filled with smoke. aaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!

oh btw if anyone sees a brand new  bottle of orange squash lying around its mine.

Sunday is my day for accomplishing things.
I've gotten the grocery run done.
Now it's on to laundry and making more jewelry.
Then a good night's sleep, hopefully.
I've placement tests tomorrow to see where I'll have to start when I go back to school.
College, here I come! Smiley

What where your Gran and her mates up to in the photos?

I plan on being young and foolish until I'm old enough to be a Granddad my self.
My mum is 65. She still goes and plays at the beach every day and only recently has taught herself to swim.
I'm hoping that her passion for life is passed on to me both through nature and nurture. Smiley

Rose Oak, dear.
Here's you wine.
I hope that there was at least a little bit of fun to be had this weekend. Smiley

My Grandfather never quite lost the youthful mad streak. He's the one who attempted to deal with a wasp nest with a can of WD40 and narrowly avoided being seriously stung!

Personally, I prefer a welding torch + some sort of flammable fluid in a pressurised container. Much more effective. ;>

i agree, i suppose it is all about feeling young on the inside and I really hope I shall enver lose that - although I have been feeling ancient recently, what with all the young whippersnappers that call themselves freshers around.

I know the feeling. Went to meet an old friend in Aberystwyth recently and we both felt downright ancient compared to the student population. That was us only a few years ago...

Thank you sweetie  Smiley I don't actually remember saturday Huh I think I  was too busy to notice.

 I sold a few things today one of which was a £60.00 jumper so *yay*. I drank more tea and ate more glazed ginger biscuits then was really good for me and am now settling down to a few lazy hours before I start what promises to be a somewhat hectic next  week.

I don't know about your grandads age but my father at 70 was up a tree a couple of months ago 15 feet of the ground picking plums. I was the one having heart attack.

He would probably have been in his 50s at the time of the wasp extermination attempt, I've only heard about it via family legend!

I did manage to get a knitting machine to work. Once. It produced the world's shortest scarf then jammed solid and refused to behave!

It was. Damn thing achieved sentience and would have buried the town under the world's largest tea cosy if I hadn't brought it down by firing treacle at it.

Ours is a pile of bits in the attic. I'm not sure why it was bought as nobody in this house knits.
