Happy N7 Day to you weirdos in the slower timezones πŸ˜‰ My own N7 celebrations fell over because 5 hour power cut and half battery on all my portable devices.

But I am about to refresh my hair colour to a more Lizzie Shep colour πŸ™‚

Right to the dye and shower and lots and lots of scrubbing with Ajax to clean up after! Will miss the pink-purple hair but it is fading and this should just liven it up a bit. I’m tempted to just put in a stripe of red to be honest…

Here’s Michaela‘s Femshep cosplay from Saturday. It was great to catch up with her, however briefly.

And my nostrils!!! πŸ˜‰ Seeing as a warship is not a suitable environment for animals I decided my armour was πŸ˜‰ Hold the line for the hampster!

Also note he is within kissing distance πŸ˜‰

I have tidied the costume in the last few days- huge shoutout to Lapco for having All the Rivets, All the Resolene and the super awesome though simple hand tools for rivet setting. The rivets are mix and match for each diametre so I need to burnish a few replacements. Also I have not got the dragon on again…. and I debated putting it on today (the Resolene means you can paint on Rub n Buff which is brilliant!) and my paint is suitably blood like in texture and opacity… but I have a few other mods to the armour that I hope to debut at the cosplay parade on Saturday XD I may need help up the stairs.. Also I sacrificed another set of crazy cool sneaker wedges for this purpose πŸ™‚ Must see if the glue has cured enough to get some more pieces in place.

Ahh, just realised the sweet shop in the background sells Salmiak flavoured licorice ropes. I love the stuff. Might see if I can order some for after Armageddon…. And though the site doesn’t have shopping available atm they do ship to NZ so yay! I think it may be their “salted” licorice…

BTW big gun is big and as awkward to handle as it looks. And you can see a wee bit of the foam interior support. I had to cut it there to fit in my suitcase. And hey, it survived all that travel πŸ™‚

Hey, that’s me! Costume has had a few repairs and upgrades (people kept banging my shoulder pieces of all things…)

Note Mr Squeak. The Black Widow is for anyone who messes with him πŸ˜‰

Femshep keeps going!

The company I bought my hides from recently posted a you tube video about the making of a guitar strap using traditional tooling techniques. In it the artist brushes a white glue on the back and on some suede and then brought the two layers together. I…
