I also had a bit of time to spend reading about costuming, working on design ideas, and testing out materials. I'm starting to get a little anxious, because I saw the harbinger of Halloween terrors, a Spirit billboard beside the highway. That is the seasonal portent which lets me know that Halloween is far closer than it should be and I really need to start working on something... I've got a suit in progress that I'll try to finish up, this year.
On Sunday, I lent a paw to help fuelnfire and redstorm unload their moving truck. It went pretty well and relatively fast, for moving, since we had a decent number of furs schlepping boxes. Costuming is cool but it involves a number of inordinately heavy items. :)
And, finally, inflatable rats during WWI.
