Weather, WoW, and W--- *hrmm* SeWing.

That was some wind around 1:30 am. I was actually nervous, and storms don't tend to bother me much. Power went out, too. It was back when I woke up (late, cause my alarm didn't go off).

My Shadowpriest has finally passed the "+1300 shadow damage from gear" mark. Of course, with the release of the Sunwell content, I believe the "totally geared out" mark has moved to +1400. I shall try not to dwell on it.

I have four sewing projects going. Argh. But I WILL complete at least one before really getting started on the Gkika-inspired one. The butterfly corset just needs bones, binding and grommets. This is doable.

The Gable Hood (which I won't need until fall) is still just a funny box and a pile of fabric.

Sophie is... mostly an idea, some possible hats and some fabric.

Gkika is pieces and parts, too. But I would like to get that done for ConQesT (britgeekgrrl this would be the Kansas City SF/Fanstasy ConQuesT)

I have been thinking about this for a bit (and mentioned it to clevermanka) but I do not understand the ... push? expectation? I notice in a large part of the costuming communities I have encountered (Ren Fest or Anime) that feels a persona is needed if you wear a costume. For me, it really is all about the costume (and I know several people that will nod and totally agree) - the making and the wearing. I don't don a new persona when I don a costume. If someone asks me, out at Ren Fest, who I am, I am caught flat footed. I am just me in an elaborate outfit.

How do you guys feel about this?
