I DID IT! (Lisa)

I finally did it.  I announced that I'm retiring.  Last day is 6-14.  I'm preparing to be swallowed by the maw of corporate paperwork.  And then emerge from that cocoon as a marvelous unemployed butterfly.

With no constraints on my time (oh ha ha ha) I hope to do ALL the fun things.

I did take my son to Fanime last weekend.  He wore a sweatshirt designed after Ezio from Assassin's Creed.
After seeing the costumes at the con, he wants me to make him this.

No problem.  For a growing 11 year old.  Easy. Actually I love the idea and did some fabric shopping online.  But no buying.  I have no idea how much he will grow and where that growth will manifest itself. In the arms and legs?  Shoulders?  Torso?

Also, I wore some steampunk stuff in case we had time to make it over to Clockwork Alchemy.  Didn't make it, but the anime folks were fascinated.  I'm pretty sure I was the only female there who was NOT showing a LOT of skin (except the furries).

Here he is, right before joining a LARP army.

The sweatshirt survived.


  1. Holy Assassins! I made my son a AC hoodie, am rebuilding it for his much taller self this week so he can wear it to PAX over Labor Day! Will post some photos on my blog in revenge.

  2. Post it with a link! That way others can go 'see' it too.
    It's possible that our sons are the same person, just temporally displaced. Mine asked me last night 'have you started yet? because you need TIME to make it amazing'.

  3. Congratulations on your upcoming freedom. Not much longer now - and it's going to feel SO good.
