Today’s work: painting Thor and Loki armor, then somehow attaching the armor pieces and the cape to Loki’s “shell”.  This involved some tricky engineering to get them to sit flat without any visible means of support, meaning I gave up my original velcro idea and just sewed them the fuck on.  
Ignore the part where the dress form is still wearing Indis’ skirt.
Tomorrow: finish weathering Thor’s armor and stick in the grommets, do Thor’s cape, sew on Indis’ buttons.  Make and paint Loki’s collar piece because I’m a genius and forgot that.  
Tuesday: pack everything, because I have to be at the airport at 4 am or something horrible on Wednesday morning to fly to Kentucky.

Have you ever seen fabric *so ugly* it’s awesome?  That’s kind of how I feel about this stuff.  So of course I had to make it into a cloak.  It makes me think that if Jareth’s wardrobe invaded Arwen’s and produced a horrific clothing lovechild, the result would be this.

Fabric is some weird-ass furry fleece covered in about a billion little teardrop sequins, lined with cream polar fleece.  I wanted a warm cloak.  I may have gone a bit overboard.  I am now stuck with this six-pound monstrosity.  But at least it has pockets?

I’m calling it the Starlight Dragon cloak.

Congratulations, you just created an elf snuggie.

Now I don’t even wanna bring my screen worn Legend of the Seeker cloak worn by Craig Parker’s body double, this I way better… I could just sneak inside. 

You should probably steal this.  It would fit you nicely.  It’s very long.

But elrohare should still bring Cloak Parker because reasons.

I dare you to turn off the lights and shine a flashlight on it. Looks really warm. And tremendously gaudy. But yay for cloaks!

This is a rough recording Arwen’s Song - the arrangement was done by the very talented hellofeanor! I thought that folks who are interested in being part of the Elf Choir at DragonCon might appreciate a track they can sing along with that has the lyrics, too. Hellofeanor made some great midi versions of all 3 Elf Choir songs as well. Please contact one of us if you’d like a copy of the sheet music!

I should also add a few notes:
1. I could not reach some of the baritone notes, so those are sung up the octave in this version. If any actual baritones show up for this panel I will be quite surprised XD
2. I did make a mistake with the alto/baritone part towards the end - “from green to gold” should have the same rhythm as the soprano part. oops.
3. I’m pretty sure this entire song went flat at some point, but I have no idea how it happened… that’s what I get for singing a capella!

Link to all the music for all three AL3P choirs: now complete.

Work gave me a fancy metal stylus/pen to use with my phone. I now look very classy and professional while playing Jewels Deluxe.
