Way Too Something - 2 by SparklinBurgndy
Way Too Something - 2
Here is my finished revamped Way Too Wonderland Madeline Hatter.

She actually didn't take as much work as I thought, because it was the simple things that made a difference, like her haircut or making sure her accessories all matched.

After the hair cut I painted her ring, earrings, necklace and purse/big clock thing gold, which made it look like jewelry and I didn't feel the need to add a lot of details after that.  Instead of having black gloves, a sky blue and pink hat and teal shoes, I painted her hat and shoes black and just matching those things made a world of difference!

The 'ribbon' on her hat was a real rubbery thing, so I cut it off and saved the cards to go in her hatband.  The band and bow on her hat were cut from the ludicrously large bow on her coat.  I resewed a much smaller bow from the rest of it and put it back in its original spot.  Now it accentuates her outfit instead of dominates it.  

Her shoes ended up being a little busy for my taste, but there was just so much going on textural I had to make some delineation.  I try not to use more than three colors on an accessory, but I had to use five here.  Black for the base, gold trim and side decorations, purple for the 'ruffle', pink for the cupcake icing and dots on the teapot and brown for the cupcake bottom.

And yes, she is for sale.  www.ebay.com/itm/-/22184168632…?

Happy Thorsday! by SparklinBurgndy
Happy Thorsday!
Found this wine on Thorsday, decided to give it a shot. I haven't actually drank any yet, but thought I'd get a picture with my Thors.  Big Thor is more of a statue than anything else. I'm going to sell him and try to score a Hot Toys Thor.

I Have A Dream!

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 30, 2015, 9:46 AM
The Sparkling One is going to let you in on a dream she's had ever since she was about . . . oh . . . twenty or so.

I have always wanted to have super-long hair.

Not just 'long enough to braid' not just 'reaches past my shoulder blades' . . . . I mean super-long hair.  Waist length at the very minimum.  Unfortunately I've also wished my hair was red and started dying it.  I never really got past my shoulders without it breaking off or splitting, etc.  Because apparently you can dye your hair or have really long hair, not both.

So I have started over!  To go with my dream of running away to sea, I am now taking steps to encourage my hair to grow to it's terminal length!

Tips mostly taken from this site: www.cosmopolitan.com/style-bea…

I chopped off every inch that ever felt a chemical.  The Sparkling One is a natural, dirty blonde. So I only brush with boar bristle brushes now (the paddle type) to encourage the spread of my hair's natural oils.  I do a coconut oil mask every week.  To repair damage.

 . . . . . my hair hair feels so friggin' oily!!!! I haven't seen my curls in weeks!  I don't even have long hair and I have long hair problems!  But patience . . . patience.  Must have patience for length.  Maybe if I just keep it braided for the next year or so . . .

Stormy Wind? by SparklinBurgndy
Stormy Wind?
Any time now, wind.  I actually am paddling with the rudder here.  The water was just like glass.  Great for fishing, not so much for sailing.

Over The Bounding Main
Not.  It was flat as a millpond.  I had to paddle with the rudder way more than I liked.

(I'm sorry for commenting this instead of messaging it I'm on my
Phone and it's not letting me send messages)
hey there, I've been a fan of yours for a good long while, years and years, and going back and rereading all the old Chack and ClayB and Phooka and I wanted to know if you have any plans to pick them back up? I do love your new original fiction too though! I'd understand if your interest in them has waned (Thordis is absolitely lovely)

Well, right now I'm trying to use any writing time I have to work on OF stuff.  Because I would like to make some monies, pls.  Though I am going to stick the Knight bit in there, since that's far enough away to be OF already.

May a drive of noble dragons circle your head today, showering you with earned praise and wonderful, intricate presents... May your friends think of you and smile and laugh, may those you love think of you and feel better and hope to see you soon.  May the year's journey 'round the sun that begins today leave you wiser, happier, more learned and eager to take a running start at the next one, and may it all begin with these sincere wishes that you have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
