Tin Girl no go

The charity calendar that the Dragon*Con folks are putting together to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer research foundation now has a forum so that people can make suggestions or offer advice on the enterprise, courtesy Dean, one of the photographers.

Still don't have anything but a ray gun for my pulp space girl costume, but we've been browsing through the shops to see if there wasn't something pre-made that could be modified. We found a nearly perfect one, a Tin Girl Costume (except without the hat). I tried it on, and it's way cute. The skirt's a little shorter than I was wanting, also it's not flared and flowy but tight and clingy, but otherwise, it's pretty near ideal.

And it's also $51.00. Sigh. Not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, but a bit much for our current budget for an outfit I'd only wear once.

I remember having piles of disposable income once-upon-a-time. Alas, those times have passed.

Back to the sewing machine.


Writing Stuff

- An editing pass on "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest, etc." After a perusal of all the crits that came in, I've come to the conclusion that there wasn't a consensus on whether it was too confusing, too explainy, or just right. Snartleblast. So I'm going with my gut instincts.

I'm feeling:
tired tired

I'll buy it for you as long as I get pictures and a promise of a live modeling the next time I'm in town;).

Both you and dean13 have graciously offered to sponsor my pulp space girl costume for the calendar. As this is for such a good cause, a cute outfit for me the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, I'm thrilled to let y'all spoil me. How 'bout you two go halfsies, and I'll make sure you both get pix and a live modeling whenever either of y'all come visiting Atlanta next? I've added it to my Amazon Wish List for shopping ease. Maybe Dean could mail you a check for his half since he was talking wiring money in the post below?
