Star Wars Identity exhibition

Look, I am a cute fluffy ewok :)


I unexpectedly went to see the latest Star Wars exhibition.
I have seen quite a few in the past and I thought it'd just be another one.


There were still some original costumes...


  ...and some models...It turned out to be a bit more interactive, you get an electric bracelet at the entrance and through the different exhibits you create your own Star Wars character. I wanted to either be a Ewok or a Gundan...went for the Ewok as they are much fluffier ;)


 I wouldn't mind having this Jar Jar original sketch on my wall.

Padmé
I used to make cosplay costumes myself...so it's really interesting to see the fabric and details up close. It's often surprising how "rough" they are.


I enjoy this kind of details, a bas-relief depicting an ancient fight of the Jedis against the Siths.

Nerves


OK, all the stuff I need for my first new item line have been ordered.  The first batch of patches is being produced, I have finalized how I am going to ship them out...and now I am over anxious.
What if this idea crashes and burns like pretty much all my other plans?
My first pin design is ready, all I have to do is to send it over to the manufacturer...but all the "whatifs" are creeping in my mind...

 I ordered new paper stickers (from Vista Print)


I decided to use up all my "old" business cards before ordering new ones...just in case...

 Fingers crossed the design  comes out as vivid and cute as I envisioned it...

Mercutio the cat

Watcha up to? 
Mercutio the cat is the latest addition to the McBain family. He arrived on Christmas day, terrified by the evening fireworks...I saw the cat runnning like crazy in my alley way, I opened the bay window and he sprinted right inside.
10 minutes later he was napping on my stomach in front of TV.
I searched the web to see if there were a missing cat ad, looked around the neighbourhood. Nobody seemed to be missing Mercutio. He didnt seem very inclined to leave either. He wouldn't even go outside for over 2 weeks.
He is very sweet and cuddly (when it's not too hot, in which case he doesn't know you). His other names are Mothcat (because of the moth shaped spot on his nose) and Muffin.

Don't take photos!

You still there?

Humpfff

Leave me alone!!!
