I’m not sorry for the lack of posting…

June 5, 2011

I have to say I do kinda miss being more of a virgin and spending all day looking at tents. I’ve spent the past few days trying to juggle money, figure out what can go (the only superfluous regular expense I have is Netflix!) and worrying about how I will go to BRC. It looks like flying will be my only option…I was really looking forward to getting to drive again.

Anyways. I’m going to apply for a job with the BORG that I applied for last  year, working in the office. I sent out applications to free-lance for some local publications. Posted that corset to Craigslist. Last night, after a Hoarders marathon at work, I spent the evening in my sewing/costume/crafts room. I emptied out four bags of trash/donation, one bag of Sparklepony Lounge give-aways and got my Megaton crafts organized.

Even my sweet-as-pie, uberChristian wonderful mom said, “What are you doing home on a Saturday night??” Trying not to cry, mother dearest, and stay busy and focused…what? You haven’t heard of Megaton?

There are of course, the RAIDERS. Those anarchistic ruffians…Warm beer, cold women: MEGATON, BRC’s first & last rock’n’roll wasteland dive bar; a refuge from the happiness & organization. Moonshine, 6-8 fights to a pint! No GD techno. Good luck getting past the door guy! SPARKLE PONIES SHOT ON SIGHT.

In addition to playing Jucifer, Clutch, the Vandals, Lunachicks, music from Fallout (40s/swingish), I’m making  a BRC Family Circus book. You caption the cartoons, then I’ll compile the best ones and mail it out post-BM.

SO MANY PICTURES.

From Cap’n Smashy. I mean, WOW. And, as far as I’ve looked through, all good.

I look so genuinely happy – and I was. Very disconcerting.

Got a nice shot of the black corset top I was working on in this blog…

This picture…this picture just makes me happy. Esp. with Connor in the background, picking his nose. LOVE IT.

Here’s the aforementioned drag I was enjoying.

Everybody thinks their campmates are the best, no doubt; but you guys, mine really were.

Playawaste Raiders FTW

Last night while working on the designs I just googled “fallout 3” (despite being the first kid on my block to own a Nintendo, I don’t like video games) again and poked around. Several sites I can’t get to, now that I’m at work, but here’s a few choice links.

10 Ways that Fallout 3 is like Burning Man

I’m digging the retro/post-apocolypse mash-up. It suites me. Didja know,

“On July 4, 2008, Fallout 3 was refused classification by the OFLC in Australia, thus making it illegal to distribute or purchase the game in the country. In order for the game to be reclassified, the offending content in the Australian version of the game would have had to be removed by Bethesda Softworks and the game resubmitted to the OFLC. According to the OFLC board report, the game was refused classification due to the “realistic visual representations of drugs and their delivery method [bringing] the ‘science-fiction’ drugs in line with ‘real-world’ drugs.”

This, this cosplay I could get into.

“Nuka-Cola Recipe
1/3rds Cream Soda
1/3rds Coca-Cola
1/3rds Mountain Dew(or any other caffienated drink you like)

Mix it in bottle, slap on the sticker, viola! NUKA-COLA!

Nuka-Cola Quantum Recipe
Two drops of Blue food Coloring
Two drops of Red food Coloring
One Foosh “Seriously Caffeinated” Mint
1/3rds Sprite
1/3rds Mountain Dew
1/3rds Squirt! soda”

I might make some Nuka-Cola cap necklaces for people, using the template in this tutorial:

Download the sdtks to the first two games.

Volpin Props has a “Fallout 3 AER9 Laser Rifle.”

A few songs from the sdtk

Or you can make your own helmet.

Or food labels.

All my thanks to my bookmark Superpunch, where I found most of these. (click for link to Pip Boy-o-Rama). Remember kids, only you can prevent human flesh fires!

What to wear, what to wear…
