On Monday I attended the Minneapolis stop of the Raspberry Pi road show. They did door prizes and I was the proud winner of an LED matrix that can run commands from the Raspberry Pi. Seeing as the only other real thing I’ve done with the Pi is program Minecraft stuff on it, I had to get the two to work together somehow…Read more
There’s a guy in homegoods strutting around with a white fur bathmat around his shoulders and his like 14 yo daughter is following him begging him to stop because people are staring and she’s embarrassed and he just said

On October 17th, I asked twitter if I should make something for Minecon this year. I had kind of debated it, but thought nah… It was going to be a long trip, and I probably didn’t want to be responsible for carrying around stuff that would take up space in my luggage.
Well then Lydia Winters told me to do it so I got to work!
In the end, I had two skirts - one for the convention and one for the .party() Both were based off the same pattern, and used the same petticoat. I’m going to do a kind of “what I did” guide for this skirt separately since I have approximately a billion words about stenciling. I didn’t end up taking too many pictures of the second skirt being made since that was done very last minute.
If anyone looks over this and has any questions, feel free to just ask. I did this all kind of a while ago and some of the process is just something I don’t think about anymore. I don’t really mean this to be a stenciling tutorial per se- there are lots of those. This is just meant to be a bit about what I did, so maybe you can keep these things in mind when you go through a stenciling tutorial to do something fun :DRead more
After prohibiting them for 116 years, McSorley’s Old Ale House was ordered by Mayor John Lindsay to open its doors to women in 1970. The article from that August describes the first co-ed bar brawl in McSorley’s history, when Lucy Komisar, a vice-president of the National Organization for Women and pictured at right, was heckled and antagonized by patrons.

I decided 5 days ago to make a skirt for Minecon! This weekend I sewed the base skirt up, and started working on a petticoat to floof it out. It’s going a LOT better than last time, I’ve learned some tricks to make everything a bit more organized. It’s still not done, but it’s going a lot faster than last time. I will share all these little tricks with you, tumblr friends, as soon as I’m done with everything! I’m actually taking pictures this time too :D
Today is the one month mark to me leaving!
