This is my old livejournal I found laying around my computer. I just thought, you know with my poetry and my seventh grade journal and everything, I could post is up here for posterity sake. I planned for this blog to be about my life and programming tutorials. I’m still working on the programming tutorials (as in, well, thinking about them). And all this old stuff, I guess is a good way to get to know me in a way. Mostly it helps me store stuff in a central location I want to look up later. So here goes. (Remember this is like 9-10 years ago):
Okay, here’s how it goes:
I decided that I’m going to finally make a fursuit / halloween costume other than the brown and gray old furry pants that I’ve been desperately clinging on to. Now, when I decide something and fixate, I decide on something and fixate. So, now I’m building a fursuit :-). And I’ve got pictures to show construction!
We went to the Taxidermist in Hot Sulphur Springs to see some bear jaws, but when we got there it turned out he had thrown out his bear jaws because nobody had used them for so long. There were weird markings on the side door, something about Barry pointing to Judas in a cross like fashion. That was kind of odd. Anyways, I’m not a bear, I just wanted a big jaw. All he had was an actual fox skull with a tooth missing. So I took that (it was rather small) and decided that we could use it for a model.
Which is precisely what we did. Using Polyklay (or something like that) we crafted an upper and lower jaw (no picture of the upper jaw yet, only of the lower jaw) and twenty black claws. You put this clay in the oven and bake it for thirty to forty minutes and voila, you have a sculpture. Yay for me! Here are some pictures:

And then we worked on the paws! Right paw first, which is the black paw. It has claws (you can’t see them as well in the picture yet but they’ll be more visible in the end) and has fur stitched to stretchy cotton gloves (med-small size for me little hands). We’re going to put pads on from suede elbow pads tomorrow and hopefully accomplish much more happy fursuiting things. It’s SO cool (funky Invader Zim happy sound) ^;^.
More to come!
