Just finished lunch, gotta go right back to wings, which were supposed to be done last night but are taking forever. I should have known a more complicated design would mean several more hours of work.

Now I remember why I don't make wings very often. It's really hard! Design a pattern, bend wire again and again and again until it cooperates (and then bend it a few more times because it undid itself), wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap with floral tape. Which needs to come in different colors by the way. I like the woodsy look of the brown, but would have preferred a silvery white or pale blue. Electrical tape looks too plasticy, even under shimmery fabric. I could wrap over it with ribbon but that would mean a) thick veins and b) hours added for glue/wrap/glue/wrap/glue/wrap process that floral tape conveniently omits with its pleasant stretchy stickiness.

Will post pictures when complete. If they are ever complete.

Might not have time to make my mask. Which means I will wear the pretty sparkly purple Venice mask from the dear [livejournal.com profile] coccinellidae.

I really wanted to make something to match the bracelet Myrrh gave me for Christmas. I have the means, but have almost run out of time. Maybe in time for summer Faerieworlds, heh.

Exhausting, and fun.

Wind! Getting dark already.

Oops, Willow curled up on my lap. <3 kitty. *petpet*

Me at the 2008 Portland Zombie Walk. Discovered recently via (the dreaded) Facebook.

Was such a lovely time. Can't wait to be a dead fairy again. I think this year I may follow the group around with spray cleaner and rags/paper towels and be the blood-cleanup-zombie-fairy thing.
