Angel wings

not much going on in my life due to covid-19.

Some posts, I’ve noted, are better than others.

But seeing as how my goal is to write every day and post at least once a day, I’m going to just go with it.

What I write, I post.

Whether it’s a fascinating story about Micro Burn or climbing Half Dome or whether it’s about shopping or costumes.

My latest project is to make a pair of angel wings.

I found THIS pair with EL wire online for a whopping $115:

I love them but $115 seems a little steep so I’ve decided I’m going to make my own with white fairy lights and these $35 wings:

I think I can mark the edges every inch or so around the border and use glue to stick the lights to the wings.

I think. . .

You can all see the final results when I’m done.

I’m crossing my fingers that it turns out good.

Decorating Pete

So since all my plans to bring Dolly to the playa have been cancelled, I’m taking Pete – my friend Tejas’ 10′ x 14′ two room tent.

Pete will need some decorating in order to cheer me up from my funk over not taking Dolly, when I had excellent decoration plans for her.

Pete, though sturdy and comfortable, is not very flamboyant or fun, as is.  So Pete is getting a makeover.

Feel free to comment, if you have ideas.

First of all, Pete is getting decorated with fairy lights.  See those external poles?  Well they’re going to get decked out like a fucking Christmas tree with them, in blue, green, and purple.

Just because those are my favorite colors, I decided to run with them.

I will also have a 20′ x 20′ silver canopy over Pete, giving us shade and respite from the heat, however small.

See?  Quite boring.  But when I jazz it up with 12 paper lanterns (which have battery powered lights), and some festive pennant banners, it starts to look a little more cheery.


And of course, the inside of my tent needs a little love too.  I’ve decided that I’m going to start by decorating Pete’s ceiling with a disco ball and some white fairy lights.  Flip on the switch for the lights, give the ball a twist and voila!  Instant disco party fever.

Yeah, I can feel the magic starting to happen.  Pete’s going to be a little love tent, that’s for sure!

Bow chicka wow wow…
