Archery.

37

Returned to the archery range after more than a year's absence. Using a borrowed recurve bow since last year I gave my old compound bow to my nephew so that he could learn to shoot. Quite a few members of my family have done archery for years. It's a fun sport, whether or not you can hit a bullseye ;)

While I think I

Spinal Threads & Ursula Tentacles

102

Another day, another DIY mission.

More T-shirt recon work. Old t-shirt with Jack Skellington, check. Scissors, check. Chalk and clear coat nail polish, check. I drew out the spinal/ rib cage design with some fabric chalk, cut it out, and then sealed the edges with the clear nail polish to help it maintain the proper shape.

Ursula Tentacles. Just sounds fun, right? Slowly perfecting my

I really like the shirt but I love the tentacles. Have you worked with the clay before and if so is there I brand you prefer? I'd live to try making something like that myself.

heathen:

@chammont I've used polymer clay as a kid - as for brand, I opted for the cheapest ;)

Tentacle Earrings

67

The latest craft day adventure:

DIY tentacle earrings made out of polymer clay and baked in the oven.

I used another earring as a rough estimate on the size I needed. If I make another pair, I'll shorten the length. These proved a bit irritating to thread all the way through my ear.

Kinda silly - but it was a fun little project to try.

DIY Cosplay Update

Here is my second attempt at creating my Major Kusanagi (Ghost in the Shell) top.

I use some newspaper to draw up my pattern. Then I salvaged the clasps and cups from an old bra. I stabbed myself with a few pins and bled a bit for the sake of it.

I still may add some finishing touches and I still need to figure out

whoa, very nice. I thought most people forgot about that movie. I went down a dark hole into researching the main theme song and discovered Okinawan choir music. Spooky and awesome!

Thanks to a few amazing and interesting people (Thelabrat & Vivid among them) - I've been trying out a few simple Cosplay ideas. Costume creation is appealing, so I'm just trying out some basic stuff first - currently attempting to create Major Kusanagi's top (Ghost in the Shell). I'll post a photo if I get a decent version made. The stitching on my first...

I finished sewing together my three layer tutu. These can be made just as easy by tying the tulle in knots around the waistband, but I wanted the practice on my machine. As for what the hell I needed a pink tutu for... I have no idea :)

I also hit the hobby store to pick up some art supplies. I thought it might be fun

5 Brain Disorders That Started As Evolutionary Advantages

Someone sent me a link to this article and I wanted to share. It has some interesting ideas on mental illness, it's prevalence in our modern society, and how it may have survived genetically because of it's advantages.

Worth a quick read.

All the sudden i feel less bad about things i suffer from and i feel badass instead. Thanks

jozsef:

I rather like that and although it could be great fun debating the minutiae of his specific analyses, the most exciting part for me is that the main thrust is spot on. Ignorance of our own inherited instinctual behaviors and responses is behind the disparity between the world we have and the great shining future we anticipated decades ago purely as a function of what's possible due to technological advancement. For one single decade, NASA under John Kennedy showed what our species is capable of when politics and money are not given center stage but many other examples also exist. I'm fond of you because you've moved out of the primitive prehistoric competitive framework into the creative one. ❤️

DIY - cut up your clothes

This past year I decided to get back into sewing. My grandmother had taught me when I was really young, like she had taught my mother.

For my first few projects, I decided to focus on some really easy DIY shirts - mostly just cutting, braiding, and hand stitching.

Next I'm going to sewing together a three tiered tutu... Mostly just because I've never...

I was recently told to stop making "emo posts" - to which I respond Fuck You. I don't require anyone to read my words and don't mind being unfollowed by people who are disinterested in the topic. I'm here for me, not a popularity contest. Since severe depression, anxiety, and other symptoms plague my everyday existence, I sometimes feel the need to speak...

If it helps you to write things down go ahead. I never accepted to be put to silence so i def know the feeling. And i went through a double depression with anxiety a few years ago so i know the feeling, went through every possible therapie. My double depression wasnt caused by a debalance of hormones, me both were caused by horror life trauma. Let me explain why i say double depression cause its actually acreal thing, im suffering from dysthymia which is a small chronic depression caused by youth trauma, this depression is so deep that your personnality grow around it so theres nothing to do than appreciate the lil moment that are great in life, so im always a lil down kinda, you know like people who says are realistic.... Well im exactly that lol. But when a dysthymic fall in depression they call it a double depression. But no worries about everything, things will go better im sure, if you need to talk im always there if you want, im a good listener and good advice ;)
