    How about costuming from 6ish-10:00, to allow the sickling time to sleep. :)

    Anyone who is not working on something will first be sent for food, then kicked out in the cold so they don't distract us. :D (Is that mean enough Fearless Leader?)

    I don't know if the leather belts will happen tonight, depends on the zoominator getting to the leather shop today.

    I'm not seeing the belts happen today. Not feeling up to going out to pick stuff up. Bleh. :p

    More than enough stuff to work on already, though.

    That's what I thought.

    I'm writing down the steps left to finish up my NS, there is still a bit to do...Did you get my arm cast filled in so it can be sculpted on? I might even try to start that and get it in the rough form tonite. :)

    Mmmmm, free cheesecake and cake and doughnuts at work today...I'm gonna need to hit the treadmill. :D

    Glad you had fun. It takes awhile hammering away at that stuff before you actually start seeing a result. That back section for the rancor would've taken me 6-8 hours to break down all that clay and lay it out the way I needed it. Same thing with the clay for the helmet, too -- gonna be about 4-6 hours of just getting the clay ready.

    No biggie. We kicked everyone out about 15 minutes after you left. I actually went to bed before 1AM. :eek:

    yes, we found the jacket yesterday. (You can tell I keep the house spotless. :p )

    Okay, this wednesday will involve making belts. If you do not have your leather go buy it right NOW. (You can just buy belt sized leather and get it cut at the leather store) Also, get any doohickeys you want to put on it.

    If you are going to do it in any other color than the natural tanny-hide color, you should dye it before wednesday to give it time to dry fully. It doesn't take that long to dry, but you will probably need at least 2 coats of the dye. I did 2 large belts with the dye on sat/sun, and they hardly took any dye.

    Be Careful with the dye, I was informed it was "wetter than water" and would splash everywhere. While I did not have any trouble with it (AND DID NOT LEAVE A GIANT STAIN ON THE PATIO, like SOME people I know) it was very wet and a few spots on my fingers have a nice dark color to them.

    Howzabout a headcount for Wed, and a start on deciding food?

    Straightened up the living room/room with nothing in it that all the sewing happens in. The dizziness from my cough medicine wore off, and with the ability to almost breathe again, I had a small burst of energy.
