I want to wish everyone a Happy 20th of Rain’s Hand. This special ‘holiday’ edition of the blog marks a first for me; my first attempt at entertaining you guys with a YouTube video. In the last episode, I mentioned I would be showcasing some new items. I took some of that focus to work on a surprise project and put together the video.
The idea started like many other of my bright ideas; Skyrim. I love the clothing; and if I had it my way, I would make it all day and night. I love a certain kind of Mage Robe, but I thought the design needed some tweaking. So, I started with a piece of remnant linen and kept going until I wound up with this:
And that is as much as I am willing to post pictures of. If you want to see the drastic changes I made, you’ll have to watch the video :) So, without further adieu, I present to you my very first YouTube video:
The robes can be made in any color and size and take a few weeks to ship. I wanted to make the robes dark and with a sense of Earth Magic. I thought the green would look better darker and with a gradient dye.
Here are a few pictures in case you don’t have time to watch. I am leaving out the best part of the design though. If you want to see it, you’ll have to wait till next blog episode. So, watching the video will satisfy your curiosity much faster. Hashtag instantgratification. I would love to know what you think.
I would like to generate enough interest that I can get a set of four of five different colors and take some crazy pictures. I can make these with any design in the front. Oh, you don’t know what that means… Guess you will have to watch the video :) I know I said that I would be showing off some of my other designs, but I have more pictures I need to crop and watermark. I wanted to focus on the video for you crazy internet folks. My next video will be just as Skyrim filled; I promise.
The next episode might take a few weeks. I have some serious garden prep work to do, a dump truck of compost to till into the soil and lots of studio work. If I get lucky, I might manage to squeeze in a BBQ in my spare time. Spare time… yeah, right!
I can’t leave today without speaking for a moment about humans in general. In the face of the events in Boston, I have seen some amazing acts of selflessness. I know Monday was a dark day in many ways; but, in many others, it showed that there are still billion of humans out there worth fighting for. If you or someone you love has been affected by Monday’s violence; I want you to know that millions, if not billions of hardworking and compassionate humans that stand with you on every corner of the globe. This time of grief will pass; you will heal and become stronger. I think I have said enough today. Be sure to look for Episode 8 coming soon!
