Yay!

Ball of Dreams is basically done.

I'll go over the entire game again before I print it all out next week, but I could run it as it stands. All that I have left to do is the little things: name badges, cheat sheets, signup sheet and the like.

Yay! 1 down, 2 to go. :)

Well, the list is on the website. What's your preference?

Has Risk been spoken for yet?

Yes it has. And could you believe I hadn't signed up yet..... Let me just change that.

I'll take Ambition in G if it is still available.

Are you sure you want to point that in my direction?

Also, is there a chance I can snaffle Julian (I think that was him. The Forest Lord guy) for Powerplays? I had fun playing him last time, I would like to give him another round this time.

Probably not. Someone else has first call over him. If he doesn't want him you have next call.

Sweet. I'll find out on the day then.

That would be me, playing Risk. Or, to put it another way... Ha ha!

See you there, Ambition!

Oh yes. We will make quite the pair. :oP

Mask made. Check.
Vest made. Check.
Adornments to vest...... 12.5% complete.
Estimated time to completion: 7 hours work.

Yeah, that should be doable by Conquest :)

Yay!

I am definitely taking photos of all the people in my games this year.

Cool :)

I just need to find a good cane now...

Ooh... I hadn't thought of a mask. How did you go about making one? If I can make one in time, I will actually be able to bring it this year.

Mine was very simple - went to Spotlight and bought a cheap plastic mask for about $2, got some cheap and tacky fabric for my vest to be made and used the offcuts of that to cover the mask - this served to provide a lining so I wouldn't have plastic on my face the whole game, plus made the mask black. I've attached a beak (using paper which I then coated with the same fabric once affixed to the mask) and finished by glueing some feathers around the eyes to highlight. Sounds tacky but the end result is pretty good - kind of a darker version of the flames who try to get Sarah to take her head off and dance. I used a heat-glue gun to stick everything together. I'm now roughly 30% through finishing the vest and have to go back to Spotlight to get some more bits and pieces :)

How did you attach those off-cuts to the mask? I'm guessing glue, but what sort of glue?

mareth_redorb
Mar. 29th, 2006 03:33 am (UTC)
I've got a small heat-glue gun - it costs about $12 to get one and on this material it works just fine. I think Bostik makes them. I'll have a look when I get home and let you know.

Thanks! I think I'll go mask-shopping now. There's a costume place that sells masks just up the road from where I work.

I'm considering a half-face mask. That should be interesting with my beard!

mareth_redorb

Definitely :)

I picked up the glue gun from a Bunnings, in the craft section I think it was.

Well, I got a mask. I might have to find a skull-cap to go with it, though, because my hairline is so high that it threatens to look silly on me.

It turns out that the costume store near where I work sells fabric-covered masks, so I don't have to bother glueing fabric to a mask myself. I might decorate it a little, but probably not a lot. I need it to stay fairly simple or it won't work with the hood of my cloak.

I've realised that I probably need gloves too. I didn't think of that until after I had left the costume store.

Oh jesus oh god eek! I just had a thought. Being Random Jones (similar to being John Malkovich). Everyone turning up in a blinding waistcoat.... :oP

Yes, you made the cut.

Currently I'm thinking either Caine or Brand, depending if I get any more players.

Game starts at 2.

I'm guessing the "depending" is because one of them is more suitable for having one of the assistant GMs step in and play if the game is short.

(Just as long as I don't end up GM-PCing Eric again. *shudder* Damn that was hard.)

halloranelder
Mar. 29th, 2006 02:21 am (UTC)
Exactly.

Besides, I think you know who I'll get you to play if I need you to play a character for me! :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
