Had a fabulous time at 12th Night, though it was one of those events where I felt like I talked for about 10 seconds to 20 bazillion people. At least I did get new garb done, as seen here - My collar was wonky, but so far it's the only one I've got (thanks [ profile] thalionar, for posting it!) since my cd of pics from Baron Bardulf won't show up for a while. Now I just need to get BoyG's matching garb made...

Did the geekiest thing I've done for a VERY long time last night, and went to get my copy of The Burning Crusade at midnight. Was home by 12:05 though - EBgames was VERY efficient about the whole thing and my husband was good at strategically positioning us in line. Haven't played it yet, though, and don't know how much I will be today, as I'm going over to Davis Library after work.

::giggle:: New fun project will be started because of said trip... no details yet, mostly because I don't want to be embarassed by it if it COMPLETELY FLOPS. :-)

Also, need to start on Persona Pentathlon. Who else is doing it?

So winter tends to be the slow season where I work - I suppose most companies don't want to deal with the hassle of new office equipment during the holiday season, not sure. Either way, I'm bored enough I started uploading random pictures to the gallery on my website - and that says something right there, as I've said many times that I Am Not A Picture Person. Unfortunately, I think Nick has some of the better pictures on his computer, and he's at a customer. :( I should probably caption/label/reorder the ones that are up there, but that's not nearly as fun as picking and uploading.

My other alternative is to go fabric shopping - 12th night is coming up soon, and I have (still fairly vague) thoughts about new garb. Some of my thoughts are here - I rather like the embroidered red dress with dagged tippets and the blue/white outfit for Girard. Both of these outfits have some major weirdnesses, which is partially why I picked them, but on the other hand it makes it a bit hard to decide if and/or how to recreate them.

lj cut for MAJOR costume geeking - you have been warned - this is something of a brain dump )
On the other hand? I don't have time to do those quite as shown (embroidery!!), and I don't have fabric that I *quite* like for doing it with, nor have I found anything cheap. I do, however, have a fairly large amount of black wool with a gold honeycomb pattern on it, that's begging to be some interesting set of matching outfits - so appropro for 12th Night, as it's one of the few times we're really in the same place the whole time at an event (usually we hit events and wander in opposite directions, one or both of us are in armor, I'm in the kitchen, or something...) So maybe I'll do something with that instead. Either way, in order to do that, I need to quit doing what I've been doing for the past week, which is Playing Too Much WoW.

However... Playing Too Much WoW has been good to me. I made Sargeant in PvP, (those of you who are serious PVPers are probably laughing now, but considering that I only started doing PvP to get the mount discount, that was an achievement), bought my Swift Riding Frostsaber, and got the Sinew for my bow. Now, to kill the demons...

Yay! Husband is back from a customer! I can go home now!!!!

Not that I think any of you were waiting with bated breath or anything. 

So I never really wrote about Ymir (ancient news, I know, but bear with me).  It was cold and wet, but I was ok with that, as I wore my blue 1430-ish wool gown and stayed surprisingly toasty.  Ysolt got her Pelican, which is *awesome*, since she (well, John too, of course, but mostly Ysolt) took us to our first event - I doubt I'd be a SCAdian now without her.  [ profile] kfitzwarin and Steve, and [ profile] puck_eater and [ profile] geniealisa came down and stayed with us, which was a blast, and we even seduced the K-Mistress into the WoWCrack. (squee!) All the work I did on Nick's fighting garb paid off, as he got enough compliments (in my hearing) that I'm glad I was wearing a train, as otherwise the fact my feet weren't quite touching the ground would have shown.  And to top the day off? My friends were conspriring behind my back...
Come to think of it, these are large enough I should cut them... )
Did I mention that [ profile] harleenquinzell (whose lovely work the scroll is) tricked me? (And believe me, the scan doesn't do the thing justice - it's GORGEOUS, and only about 4" wide).  She showed it to me like 5 times while creating it (before the name went on it) asking me whether I thought the recipient would like it. Thus leading me to threaten "appropriate revenge" in court...

Anyway, the two weeks between Ymir and KASF were insane, and included flooding (eek! all fixed now, though, and it led us to discover a new comfy organization for our living room furniture, not to mention an excuse for a trip to IKEA, where we ended up with new dining room furniture.

As fo KASF? Even though I didn't enter Pentathlon, I still had a blast. I took up a set of 9 sauces (in adorable little mustard pots my husband found for me at Southern Season), and the hat and calligraphy in progress. Talked with lots of people, got lots of comments and ideas for future projects, and saw other people's VERY nifty stuff (when I managed to get away from my display, that is - I didn't finish labels, or anything, so I spent most of the day hanging out in boy garb and convincing people to come try stuff) and finished up the evening with yummy prime rib at Outback (washed down with an abundance of margaritas, even).

I've spent the last week vegging, to be honest - we've been to Molten Core three times now. I like the guild we've been running with, since WH isn't big enough to support MC runs, but the new point system is... arcane, to be honest. ::shrug:: they're new at it, it'll all work out. We ended up spending the weekend working on a new site for work - I'll link to it to show off when we get it done, as I'm kind of proud on it.  N and I had to learn CSS to do it, which will come in handy in the future. (Erminespot needs content, badly).

This week, though, it's time to get off my ass and start working on Pennsic stuff, and some other Nifty Projects...
