momijizukamori: Green icon with white text - 'I do believe in phosphorylation! I do!' with a string of DNA basepairs on the bottom (Default)
Media: Andy and I started watching Natsume Yujincho in the the between season lull, because I finally heard enough second-hand buzz to be interested. It's very charming, even if the art style is a bit generic, and we'll definitely keep watching. I watched the first episode of Emerald City with my mom on Friday - it's got a gorgeous aesthetic and some interesting worldbuilding, though the storytelling seemed rushed. I'll keep with it for a few more episodes and hope that gets better. Also watched the first six episodes of Black Mirror which.... is good? But also kind of like reading a pile of fatalistic Wired articles at once.

I've been reading Neil Gaiman's The View From The Cheap Seats during lunch at work, which has been excellent so far. I should probably read some at home, too, because it's super-overdue at the library, but once given free reign of the internet I end up frittering away my free time on other things.

Cosplay: Got my kimono for Yasusada properly hemmed, finally, and I made a trip out to Tandy Leather before work on Tuesday to take advantage of a really good sale they had on some garment leather, and to pick up some thinner veg-tan to redo my bracers out of. Monday night was spent making a terrific mess in the process of lifecasting my lower arms and hands so I can mold the bracers and thermoplastic on them easily. Turns out plaster of paris is a kind of too soft for this (I have managed to accidentally snap all the fingers off both of them), but they're good enough for now, and I have learned my lesson for next time.

Also put together a frame for my first homemade silkscreen, because it's way cheaper than buying prestretched screens. That was what the photo of the wood was from - I made a simple router jig to cut lap joins for the corners, but I didn't clamp it down well enough before routing the first end and it shifted. This afternoon was spent

DW: I've reached the clean-up stage of the /customize conversion, barring some new major problem making itself apparent. Hopefully it will be beta-ready by the end of the month? And then I can actually start working on the things I set out to fix to begin with, haha.
