Well, the Sexy July Halloween wasnâ€™t a flop, as Atari had feared. I think there were about 50 people there through the night. Some costumes were great, others had been done very last minute. Everyone I know of had a great time though. There was a plethora of pirates, which surprised me. Thereâ€™s never been and overriding theme to any of the costume at these parties before. I had a great time, but since I didnâ€™t drink (been having tummy problems all week), I have no interesting â€˜I was drunk and…â€™ stories to tell. I do hope this party becomes a tradition, because I have many more warm-weather costumes I want to make. This wasnâ€™t much different than the normal Halloween party except that I wasnâ€™t freezing the whole time. I did get a LOT of compliments on my costume though. Seems everyone really liked it. Everyone was more surprised that Iâ€™d made this whole thing myself with just fabric glue. One day Iâ€™ll learn to sew. Johnâ€™s costume was hit too, but he ditched the geta halfway through the party. Seems (surprise!) that theyâ€™re really hard to walk in. All in all, I was very glad to see everyone again, and I even met some new people! You can see the entire party costume gallery here.
Also, I just finished another drawing. This one was mostly for practice of hair and clothing folds, so I drew a girl (of course) in a petticoated dress with long, flowing hair. Her hair is red, surprise. 🙂 I think she turned out rather well, and since she was done in OpenCanvas, thereâ€™s a movie of her being drawn as well. Anyone that hasnâ€™t gotten OpenCanvas yet should! They creators have made it so it installs itself from an exe file, so thereâ€™s no more messing with the massive zip files. I just adore this program, especially now that I know mostly how to use it. Itâ€™s just so cool watching the picture draw itself on screen!
