ponderosa: photographic portrait of Idris Elba in a fedora from GQ magazine (misc - idris)
Recently I've gotten used to actually unhooking my gaming laptop from its ridiculous nest of cables on my desk so this weekend I finally dusted off my sewing machine and got working on my dwarf costume. So far, so good, though I still hate sleeves. Why so hard, sleeves? I expected to feel pretty rusty seeing as I haven't sewn a costume in a few years, but it's been pretty straightforward so far.

Other things:

J is using dialogue from Leverage for his animation project this semester. I love it. It's a clip of Parker from the jury episode, and it makes me laugh every single time no matter how often he has to replay the scene. Last semester he noticed that the only students including women in their assignments were the (very few) women, so he's making an effort to buck the trend. Best husband.

After some epic reading on lazy weekend afternoons, I finally made it through my current reading list. I just finished Richard Kadrey's Aloha From Hell. I like the first book in the series the best (Sandman Slim) since the protagonist's goal was really defined, while the other two feel more like he's being dragged along by circumstance. Fun reads though, and I love the way the world works.

I'm now slowly making my way through my company's titles. I started reading Bi today since I was actually scanning through pulling out snippets for marketing. In a lot of ways it reads very much like someone's thesis, but I'm finding it a lot more engaging than the last academics-slanted title I'd snagged from the shelves. So far, the author does a really good job of breaking down the bigger concepts and making them accessible.

Finally:

My excitement for Pacific Rim is epic. I want it now.

Now that my sewing machine is out and I got all my notions and fabrics sorted I am so ready to get my cosplay going for this year. Only now that I have made it through all the canon, I feel like I desperately need someone to link me to some good Torchwood cosplayers so I stop being tempted. :x

In mundane whiny news, the apartment is stupidly warm after being closed up all day and I have no idea how I'm going to get to sleep. It doesn't help that I got up at a leisurely 8:30am today. Shocking!

Whilst at my fav second hand store digging up a snazzy button-down for interviewing in, I may have also picked up a long, six button, dark brown suede vest for a dollar. It shall match J's aviator hat quite nicely. I look forward to embellishing it. :d
