    I'll have to find the ones I saw. This was a few years ago; a very high-end catalog (I was working for a home automation firm at the time; the fun of buying really expensive electronics for people!), but it was really small. I must find it for you, but I think it was in a trade magazine or a catalog that was widely distributed. Anyway, keep an eye out (so to speak); exciting things are going to be coming down to realistic prices soon in that area. Mark my words, small things are happening. (couldn't resist) P.S. I've always wanted a computer suit, but I'm not good with actual handling of hardware; I have a major static issue.

    My machine still isn't working (needs a part and I still haven't resolved that damned bobbin issue) I do a lot of handsewing. I have a pattern and the material to make 2 skirts from it somewhere and I have yet to use it what with not having the machine operational and all. It's cheaper to buy something from Goodwill and make something completely different out of it than to buy fabric and build from scratch. And I think you can have a lot of fun with it. I do, anyway. Dude, I've always wanted to do that. I was working for a home automation company when those HMD's came out, so I saw them in one of the trade magazines. Aren't they cool?

    This sounds like some pretty ingenious stuff. Disposible masks? How'd you manage this one? Just get a jar of liquid latex or what? Did you use a plaster cast of your face, imprssed in clay to make a life mask, and then add whatever you wanted to add? I mean, did you customize them for yourself? And the on/off for the blacklight? Did you use somesort of Hg switch so it would cut off when you tilted your head a certain way? Did you use a battery pack for power? Did you put all the works in your hat or have cords to a belt battery pack, so as not to have the weight knock the hat off? Not that I'm a costume nerd or anything.

  10. I have recently been getting very into making stuff for myself. It's so much cheaper and you end up with something nobody else has. I even have a sewing machine that almost works (if I can just fix the bobbin. My sister says she can help me with that). Anyone else into the DIYage? Got a favorite project? My fave easy projects are bell sleeves (it's like a mini-circle skirt for the end of the sleeve---really easy to do, if somewhat annoying to hem) and ribbon chokers (take a piece of broad ribbon from a craft store and a couple of hook and eyes. About the same amount of work as sewing on a couple of buttons voila instant choker for under a dollar)

    I'm going to Hell for laughing at that. I'd better go tell it to the boi so I'll have company. Not that y'all aren't company; you're just not that kind of company.
