And in other other other news. Because I am in a chatty mood this evening. (Maybe because I finished work at 2 so have had sufficient time away from people.) Might have slightly given my tumblr url to a girl at work, which should be terrifying but the “WHY DID SERENITY HAVE TO HAPPEN?” and “I’M A LEAF ON THE WIND WATCH HOW I… NOPE” are uttered frequently at work so I am confident nothing I post here will make her judge me too bad! LOL
They keep advertising a documentary/series on National Geographic about the 90’s.
On the one had. YAY! Because I am a fan of that decade and all that. BUT. FUCK does it make me feel old! The decade of (mostly) my teens is documentary worthy??
So, I’m gonna need to make a badge for the costume, but I have NO IDEA what sort of material is going to be best. Mum has so far suggested cardboard covered in tin foil… Which I’d like to avoid tbh. My initial thought is Acrylic. On the theory the raised parts can be cut seperately and glued on, and it’ll be paintable. But the practicalities of it is a little scary. It’s been a LONG time since I played with that as a material!
reference image found via google.
So, hive mind of tumblr Have you used Acrylic? Is the thin (like 1.5mm - 2mm) easy to cut and work with?
Any other suggestions of material?
On the plus side I am starting MUCH earlier this time. And have a sturdy to-do list. And (hopefully) less sewing to do.
On the other plus side I am REALLY enjoying looking for decent reference images. REALLY ENJOYING!
REALLY REALLY REALLY ENJOYING!!!!!!
I might have stumbled upon that one and saved it just because. But the other stuff I have is ACTUALLY USEFUL!

I WOULD GET IT IF I WERE THERE.
I know you would m’dear, I know!
Chatting to absdax in the photo shoot queue at the weekend sealed the deal because she was “OMG DO IT!”
After long and careful consideration I have decided I DON’T CARE if no one knows the reference and I get blank looks… for LFCC Winter I AM Cosplaying as Jane Castle from Space Precinct and it is going to be GLORIOUS.
Mainly because I get to treat me and buy a leather jacket.
It should also involve a shit-tonne less sewing, some embroidery and BOOTS.
Plus I will get such a kick if anyone DOES get it and comments.
Watching Avengers Assemble with mum and we are just giggling and quoting our favourite bits at each other.
