ughhhh tumblr's down and i just want to see my dash's reaction to the latest homestuck update ):

Fedex had better deliver my freaking package today. I am going D&D tonight and I said I would dress up and bring candy and I can't exactly dress up without my wig and make-up now can I? |: That said, I am currently painting my nails (well I'm currently waiting for the first coat to dry, anyway) and after that's done I'll make up the stencil for my shirt and paint that.

And then I have to spend the rest of the day working on the bag Pinky is paying me for because, uh... well, I'm getting paid for it. And I've had enough time to have finished it, or would have if I had actually been working on it. Which I haven't. So, there's, uh... that.

Yesterday I tried to figure out the esoteric art of applying false eyelashes. It's hard. I get to figure that out more today, too /: I know where I was going wrong, at least. Still, picking glue out of your eyelashes is... not fun. At all.

I also need to eat at some point. I'd like to do it soon, except for the part where my nails are wet and all... hmm. Well, I'll eat eventually I guess.

Tumblr's back up! The reaction was not as glorious as I thought. Fortunately I popped onto Facebook to complain, saw Amber had already complained, commented on her post, and then spent the next half-hour gushing over it with her. So that was nice.

I've strung my horns back onto their elastic, and I've ended up cutting off enough of it while doing so that I don't need to tie off more in order to get them to sit on my head properly. I probably will need to if I want the elastic to sit under my wig instead of under my chin, though. Of course, I can't test it out yet since my wig isn't here yet. I have been so super jumpy waiting for the fucking Fed-Ex truck to show up, I am not even kidding. Like, I got really excited earlier, but it turned out it was only just the gardeners (who honestly don't really do much at all, like I don't even know why we're still paying them. They blow stuff around our yard. That's it. Which is useful when, for example, we've had lots of wind and rain and so our redwood tree has decided to shed everywhere, but is far less useful at any other time). And then the house was making its creaky house noises and my aunt was scuttling about in her room, so I kept getting up and checking.

But no. My package is not here yet.

I did the stencil for my shirt, and started painting the Aries symbol on. The fabric paint I have is actually a lot brighter than I'd like... I've only put one coat on, and it looks kind of distressed, really; I like it, and I'm tempted to leave it more or less as it is. It also looks kind of sloppy, though... Well, maybe I only think it looks sloppy because I know it is; it might look fine to other people. I guess I'll find out later.

Yesterday I asked for candy requests in a comment, relating to how I was going to be dressing up; I didn't get any replies. Today I was smart and made an actual post about it, and so I'm actually getting requests now. I'll have to go out and buy candy later, but I'd already anticipated that.

I also need to clean up my nails; they're all lovely and dark red, but, uh... also really messy. So I need to go around with a Q-tip or a brush or something.

...and I need to finish Pinky's bag! Ugh ugh ugh ugh I should have it done by now ): I'm a bit further with it! But not... not enough. D:

Package finally arrived! :D My wig is pretty great, all long and curly and shit. Also the eyeshadow is a lot redder than the pink stuff I've been using... My first impression of the dark pink was that it was more of a Feferi colour than an Aradia colour. Now that I have the red I want to use (it's called "extreme apricot" but... it's red) and tested it next to that pink, I've only reaffirmed that belief.

I somehow managed to fuck up my nail varnish T: I applied a bit more and I'm waiting for it to dry before I go looking for my leggings to try and put this whole ensemble together. I'm still trying to get the false eyelashes to go on properly T: It's really really hard. On the plus side, I didn't get any more glue in my eyelashes /: And the paint on my shirt is about dry! So there's that, too.

...now if my nails were. ):
