The sun also rises!

Eight days ago the world was blessed with the final installment in the Brave Saint Saturn Trilogy.

The first of the three albums, by BSS, a side project for Five Iron Frenzy's Reese Roper's darker more emotional lyrics, came out in 2000. So Far From Home follows the USS Gloria, a manned space craft bound for Saturn. In 2003 BSS released The Light of Things Hoped For, continuing the story of the crew on the USS Gloria. I don't want to give away too much because these albums are must-listen-to's.

Funny Fact:
Twice in my sleep I've sang BSS songs. Maybe more, it's only been heard by others twice.


So yeah... anyway. The third and final installment of this space trilogy came out the 15th, and three songs are free to listen to on: http://www.purevolume.com/bravesaintsaturn.

Since these albums are structured to tell a story, while the individual songs are powerful and creat a rush in ones heart, the real impact comes in the entirety of the album and story.

The Light of Things Hoped For, leaves listeners with a dramatic climax with little resolution. So fans waited five years to hear the end of this.

I've done everyone except Simon, mostly because I haven't found a compelling quote from him yet.
So here's a long graphic of all the posters, perfect for pinning! (hint hint).

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."



Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.



If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
