I’ve had to put a limit on this, and today my not be the ideal day- weird inflammation along top of radius- but I do need to put a pin in this! So I have some nice weight card to work with and will set up my netbook with some media and just start and …

one last chance for ahsoka

I’ve had my first infusion, not feeling terribly great but that’s because it is doing what it is supposed to. So I feel flu-y. Time for some more paracetamol and a rest. So I can’t really use too many “spoons” outside of healing. Tomorrow I’ll rehem Elsa (horsehair braid really does help the hem kick …

actual progress

Genuine real Ahsoka Tano progress! I wasn’t sure if our oven would be reliable to bake my leather armour in. I wasn’t sure if the curves would flatten out while on the trays and I wasn’t sure it would be under 60C but over 50C to get the pieces steaming but not scalding. But it …

Ahsoka did progress

It just is much like the lightsaber hilt progress: it looks the same as the last time…. So after posting yesterday I managed to paint a little more latex on the lekku this time right side up and as expected the extra internal latex did help a lot with montral support. i initially bought a …

ahsoka progress maybe

Well the fabric didn’t dye. But I have tested that pattern so many times now I know it works. The leatherwork took a huge step forward though 🙂 Got the bracers, hand plates, hip pieces, narrow belt soaked and heated again. So I will be able to paint this week. The test scrap looks amazing. …
