Speaking of Scary Fear plush. Today Chris took me to Jo Ann Fabircs and I went to pick up the material for Fear's skin since I had bought the wrong stuff before. I was shown the right thing that's furry but they didn't have it in black. Darn it just my luck. But I realized something the back side of this stuff was just like the "panty hose" like material that made his body. I showed a sample of that to them and how the other side had cotton and no one could ID what it was. But then I thought it must be the same furry stuff that makes his skin just that whoever made this shaved it and put it inside out so he'd have a smooth body. So I bought some white furry stuff and will do the same thing to make his legs with. I then found some tough similar black fabric on its own and bought some as well. I'm going to experiment because I've never been a fan of furry plush toys that what they represent aren't furry things. Like dinosaurs and reptiles. Fear's skin isn't furry. It's quite smooth actually since he's a cell. I'm thinking of making his head and hands out of this stuff. If it's durable I may scrap the whole furry fabric thing with him. When I was a kid many plush toys were made of cotton and were smooth. You don't see that anymore and I prefer those because they don't shed and feel cool to the touch. Why should I make things based on the trends. I've always done my own thing anyway so we'll see how this goes. I wish I could find more of this fabric in other colors than black so I could make his green mouth and yellow teeth. Well those will be cotton then.
Because it's been raining so much it's been a much nicer cooler day. I love that as it's a nice break. I'm not looking forward to the sun coming out because once the sun returns it will be like soup out there. The construction has made a mess of our road and driveway. It's hard getting in and out but it's not so bad. I have a Jeep so I can get over it.
Artistically I feel a bit lost after having finished writing that outline. I guess I should start writing Flight of Fire for real then because that's what I'm channeling. I'm definitely on a Doom kick. I'm impatiently awaiting my board game.
I think LJ has changed something. I first noticed I was having a hard time highlighting text when reading AudeS's story. I highlight sections of big text so I don't lose my place. But it wouldn't let me do it or only sections near what I was highlighting. I thought it was his journal but then it started happening when I was reading posts through my friends page in my own journal style. So LJ is doing something stupid and new or it may even be my Firefox.
