Another realm: undersea city
From DragonCon Night at the Georgia Aquarium, model: Cathey Coolidge. Photographer: myself.

As I took this photo, I felt I had found a portal into one of many alternate realms, happening upon an elvish woman in an undersea city.

I have taken up werewolf costuming over the past year and a half. I'm trying to be more vigilant in getting documentation of the creative process as I begin work on my third piece. The first, Snowblast, is all white, and he was designed as a proof-of-concept, to see if I could do it and to develop skills. I figured white was good for hiding mistakes along the way. He came out far better than hoped, right up until towards the end. His back looks a bit wonky, and he's got a perpetual teeth-baring snarl--though the latter isn't necessarily a problem, depending on the occasion. But, I learned that cheap thread from China breaks easily and makes for frequent need for repairs. I also learned how hot lycra and fur in two layers can be. My second outfit, code named "New Black Wolf," fixes all of these problems and has significant improvements in mobility, visibility, and visual detail. My only gripe is that the jaw doesn't articulate the way I want it.

I had several fixes in mind to Snowblast, mainly to the back. But, as I thought about the design fixes, I thought about redoing the ankles, portions of the head, and... soon I found myself instead starting a new project, tentatively titled "Snowblast 2.0." Today I hit a pretty big snag. The fur I wanted to use wasn't available, either at Joann's or Hancock. They have white fur, but it's either very short and sheep-y or thin and attached to a stiff and lifeless fabric underneath. I could use the later to make the back modifications I originally had in mind, but using it on a new build for a whole body wouldn't work. So, Snowblast 2.0 will likely revert to fixes to the original costume.

But, I've already started work on something. I've got jaws on wire frames. Now I'm faced with the daunting decision of going forward with color. Wolf colors are dramatic and vivid. Going all black and all white helped me skip that part. There were several good lupine color furs in each shop, but making the colors blend believably will be tricky. Now comes to choosing between tan and grey, or figuring how to mix the two.

ALTER! To All Comcast Costumers out there! Comcast is doing something really Illegal with your browser by highjacking your info and posting message to make people sight up for Date Cap on internet at 300gb! This not right for them to do this. This needs to get out to the public right now! No lie! If you have services with them, there look at you browser and you'll see the pop up start to invade your site. On top of this if you by High Speed you'll loses more date with the Cap on faster! This just pure greed on thire end, and you need to post this one every media outlet out there. Let's try to stop this!! Please post this up

Thanks for the heads up. I'm not a Comcast or Xfinity customer, and it looks like if the choice ever comes up, I'll have to keep it that way.
