Hauberk is a fun word! And yeah, that's the idea. By the time I add the sleeves, my tunic is going to be somewhere around 20,000 rings, I think? Gah it was such a huge investment. @.@

Hahaha you're funny. xD I have most of the stuff I'll need for the swords already (I bought way too much foam when I was shopping for my Master Sword stuff), save for the fiberglass cloth itself. Personally, I'm more worried about how we're going to rig our wings, because I haven't made any human-sized pair before!

(And I hope you feel better. ;n; *hugs and shares another blanket and warm tea*)

Hmm, I was just about to buy myself a new laptop online, when my dad stepped in and insisted he'd be able to negotiate a lower price if we went into the store itself and tried to barter.

...this should be interesting.

I think I'm sick too. I woke up dizzy and an hour and a half later I'm still dizzy. And I've felt vaguely off-colour for almost a week.

XDDD oh god, that's a LOT!
Oooh yeah I do that too! And......that was my problem too. I'm tempted to just use wire and organza, but I hate how wire is so easy to deform! Also, I hate trying to get two pieces to be the same.
And thank you! ;_; Although hugging me might not be the best idea. XD

18 or so pounds of rings is a lot indeed. *falls over*

I was thinking about that, but it's so flimsy... almost makes me want to go for plexiglass or something, but that's A) hard to work with, B) kinda expensive comparatively, and C) heavy. Research time, hahaha?

Aww, any time. <3 And I'm safe, since it's a virtual hug!

EDIT: Hope the computer shopping goes well too, Bisected!

Uuuuugghhhh. I think I'm sick. Like, legitimately sick. I spent most of yesterday uncomfortable and FREEZING to death, despite being wrapped in a giant fuzzy blanket and wearing a giant fuzzy jacket.
Thanks so much for the resource, and I hope you're feeling better soon!

Today is our Christmas party! We had move it up a few hours because of the snow.
Girlfriend is making beef wellington. I made (bought) a veggie platter. Because I slipped in the shower yesterday and wrenched my back, so bending or standing for longer than needed isn't an option.

Brought the carrier back to the shelter and everyone wanted to know how Jiji was doing. They where all thrilled to hear he was so happy here and well behaved. Aside from you know, jumping through the blinds

I bought a mixed box of doughnuts for the volunteers and that certainly went very well :P

Everyone just wanted to see pictures and hear how well Jiji is doing ^^

Only when Emmers wants to share it, though. xD (Glad to hear that Jiji is doing well, though!)

Luna-- Oh no, I'm sorry you fell and hurt your back! That Christmas party sounds like a lot of fun, and the food sounds equally excellent. Hope it's a good time!

And feel better, everybody!

I'm just dizzy. But I feel like I've been fighting something off all week. Dunno WHAT, but four days out of seven I had some weird symptom and I was more tired than I should be on the others.

Ladies, ladies, this is just like when our perds are all synced up. Only with colds.

You're welcome.


But no really, everyone feel better. Now.
