Laser Awesome!

There's a new sign on the door at the laser shop!

My better half remembered that I wanted one of these, found the image and printed it out nice and big. Thanks, Don!

Thanks also to Nickelodeon, or maybe Nicktoons, whichever one has the "Laser Awesome" program block. I'd include a link, but I can't seem to figure out how just now.

Other creative endeavours

Work on my B-Wing helmet continues, but it doesn't look too much different yet. Sculpt, coat with sealer (white glue, mostly), sand, sculpt some more... but I've made a few new pieces. There will be photos as soon as they're warranted.

I made a prototype of a new puzzle the other day, but I probably shouldn't post pictures until it's in production. It's very pretty, and shaped like a flame. I have another design that needs to be made in the next few days, a polyomino set to commemorate an upcoming event.

Meanwhile, here are a couple sketches of an original costume I'm wanting to put together. Partly, they were just an experiment with a couple of human figure templates I found on the Web, but I'm mostly happy with the design. I've got the fabric ready, in colors not quite so bright. The final geometry will be different, I'm sure. I still haven't worked out where to hide pockets, or exactly what the collar will look like.
