Shego Costume: Making a Bodysuit (Part I)
One of the things that I have not made for myself is a bodysuit. Spandex fabric has been my anetham and I have avoided it for a long time. However, with a lot of costumes using bodysuits, I knew that it would be inevitable that I would have to suck it up an...

This is super cool! Furry fandom helped welcome refugee children to their new home.
Syrian refugees in Canada have been personally welcomed into the country at Vancouver airport by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, they have been welcomed by children in a video saying “see you in school,” and now they have been welcomed by Furries. The fifth annual VancouFur convention, in which people dress up as fictional anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics, was held at the same hotel where a number o...

Stitches West 2016 Wrap-Up
In February, Sandy & I headed off to Stitches West in Santa Clara. We saw a LOT of fiber arts from knitting, to crochet, to felting. As always, there were a lot of very nerdy & geek themes abounding, like this felted R2D2 and Toothless dragon And dinosaurs....

I watched the video linked in the original comments and I'm not super impressed but it would be cool to try those. I guess I could just buy cheap metallic dpns from secondhand shop and bend them myself...

Small Sacrifices ...or a Lesson Learned
Sometimes, it's worth a small sacrifice to save the whole, I think..... I had bought some of Miss Babs YOWZA yarn at Stitches West in a beautiful burgundy color and a coordinating variegated yarn for a sweater that I had in mind. Now, I've used Miss Babs ya...

Target Archery  - 
 
This past weekend was the California State Indoor Championship in Tulare. It was my first big indoor tournament, and I did fairly well for my first time -- ending up 8th in the state, shooting above my average for 3 out of the 4 rounds.

I learned a lot -- including how tiring it is to shoot the two 300s in a row. Also, my line partner was Kyong-wook Kim.... the South Korean gold medalist (team & individual) for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics! 

She was an amazing archer. I didn't know who she was until one of the other archers said something to me about it on the 2nd day. I was just amazed at her talent and skill from the moment she started shooting. (She obliterated the middle of her target & her last round was a 292!).  Shooting next to her made me try that much harder, even before I knew she was a former Olympian.

It was a totally fun & good experience. And I learned a lot.

That's great, congrats!! And yes, I also find that shooting next to people which are better (as much as possible) than you makes you try harder... and hence improve the scores, at least in my case it usually works!!

Mostly just a Crafty Geek Girl.
Introduction
I live in the glorious San Francisco Bay Area, and have a plethora of interests, amoung them being --- all things Sci-Fi and Fantasy, fencing, photography, books, traveling, music, cats, costuming, fiber arts, crafting, and just "Making" in general. I am capable of doing most of anything if I put my mind to it.
 
Consequently, I'm usually never bored.  I love my life and am always perplexed by those who don't enjoy theirs.
