I thought this city would be a perfect place where everyone got along and anyone could be anything. Turns out, life’s a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means, hey, glass half full, we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. So no matter what kind of person you are, I implore you: Try. Try to make the world a better place.

BAZ SECRETLY LOVES: Hair dye. (Both on his hair and Simon’s) (7/?)

Penny had pleaded to play with their hair, and they’d even trusted her to choose the colors. (”Red for Baz, because fire, and blue for Simon, because Snow!” she’d reasoned, except Baz’s turned out more pink than red.) Baz was furious at first (because Simon looked even better than usual and that was infuriating) but Simon was amused to no end (because he thought Baz looked cute with pink hair.)

Used a different style for this one. Basically I just had a lot of fun HAHA. I’m still open to suggestions! Hmu if u have any cute ideas

Last week I had to finish up this little skybison baby in a rush, as the friend of mine who requested this had a birthday party on Saturday. I’ve been sort of putting this up but the birthday was such a good opportunity to give it to her that I decided to hurry it along. I’m glad I did, she was really happy, as handing in the commission was totally on a whim for her and she kind of forgot about it, so it was even more of a surprise than I anticipated :)

I actually spent a lot of time hunting for the perfect fabric for this project and hence have a kinda big stack of it lying about now. It had to be a really fluffy one and I wanted to have it a really soft off-white that had to go with the brown I wanted to go with so I was kind off limited in my options which didn’t work very well with the very limited colour range off plush where I live :P Luckily I could use up some of my fabrics from my stash for the belly and the face, as I had a really nice soft nicky from my totoro sweater, a metallic jersey from an old platypus project and random alcantara which I’ve used for the first jacket I’ve sewn (wonder if that still fits me…)

The pattern I basically eyeballed. I knew I wanted to be really close to the reference, but it varied a lot depending on the picture you looked at, so I took a few artistic liberties, especially concerning the amounts of stripes on his back. I’ve learned the hard way that it’s better for me to work off a good pattern I’ve really thought through all the way then improvise it on the go. I have a pretty good feelings for geometry and patterns, but when it comes to the executing projects, I usually power through a lot so I have to have a solid base to work from and have to have a plan, otherwise I tend to make rush decisions that don’t work out as well as I’d like to. It worked out fairly well for this one except for the muzzle, which did turn out slightly more ruffled than I intended, and the eyes which aren’t perfectly symmetrical because I sewed them on in the subway to the party :P. I first sketched out the pattern, which actually was done month ago and then I tranferred it onto paper in the right measurements (again eyeballing them in about the size I needed) carefully labelling every part with which part it was and how often I needed it in each fabric.

Then came the cutting. And admittedly, it was tedious to pay attention to the direction of the hair in every single piece I cut, cutting it out in a way that I wouldn’t cut away any of the hair I might possibly need  later on and then lie it out on my kitchen table so I wouldn’t confuse any of the pieces. This I think really saved a lot of time and frustration for me (and made for really nice pictures too :))

When I had everything cut up and ready, it came to deciding the order of sewing. Luckily I had thought this out before too, so it was just a matter of pinning it together (again paying attention to tucking in all the fur) and then hand sewing it all together. There were so many individual little pieces that I figured hand-sewing would actually be faster and tidier than doing it on the sewing machine. The only exception to this were the panels on the belly, which were made from alcantara and hand-stitching them would not have looked as tidy as I’d have liked it to (my machine didn’t like the fabric though and decided to skip stitches ever so often so I had to redo parts of it by hand anyways).

Making the arrow on the back was definitely the most rewarding part of the sewing process. I’ve never made anything like it and was so happy how it turned out! And I was really really hesitant to move on to the face as I feared it would mess everything up (Which ALWAYS happens, when I haven’t prepared everything beforehand…). At that point I hadn’t fully decided how to approach it and it was a bit tricky as there were different fabrics which all had a different stretch so in the end I opted for keeping the eye part and sewing the rest of the face in fake fur as the shape would be much more consistent and puffing the muzzled up would actually be easier when I would just sew it on top. So then I had a solid base to work from. At Friday way past midnight. And Saturday was a working day.

On the morning in the subway I decided to take things easy; there were only the (already premade) feet to be sewn on, the muzzle, the nose and the (already premade) eyes. So I spent my lunchbreak doing that. But I only managed the feet and the upper lip and as I really wanted the pieces to sit exactly where I wanted to, I opted to stay in a bit after work and finish up as much as I could there. So I sat there with all the colleagues who were already in weekend mode, sitting around with their beer stitching away in a frantic hurry, because I was already late for the party XD and turns out the colleague of mine who set next to me was a massive avatar fan XD He kept stealing glances at the little skybison and when someone asked what i was actually making, he chimed in “it’s appa!” almost in awe! XD And when I was leaving I gave the toy to him to hold for a bit and he was very happy about that too :)

So when I left, I had the nose and the eyes left to sew on. Good amount of sewing for a subway trip. XD The elderly man who sat across from me was a bit buffled I attempted it though tbh. Maybe also due to the military pocket knife I used to do the cutting XD Due to my stress the eyes, as I’ve already mentioned came out a bit wonky, but I think it’s not too noticeable and he still looks really adorable! I had opted to paint the eyes too and had also brought the colours with me but unfortunately I completely ran out of time for that too XD

All in all I’m absolutely happy with how this one turned out! And my friend is absolutely over the moon about it too, which is the most important thing!

Black-Blue (Dimir) Mill Package

I love mill. I don’t talk about it nearly as much as I want to. It is, put simply, the best mechanic without a keyword in the game. I’m calling it now. Quote, Max - 2016.
For those who are unfamiliar with this beautiful mechanic, the premise is to systematically remove cards from your opponent’s libraries causing them to lose when they try to draw from an empty library. Now, I hear you, isn’t that extremely difficult in EDH? Isn’t having 100 cards in a deck plus having only a small pool of cards to select from working against you? The answer is yes. But that doesn’t mean we can’t try! With that, I introduce to you the 1x8 package based around Black and Blue mill.

Note: For the sake of simplicity every time I refer to Grinding what I mean is “Reveals cards from the top of your library until they reveal a land. Put all cards revealed this way into their owner’s library”. It is a colloquialism I use.

Phenax, God of Deception - I’m starting here with a legendary creature for two reasons. 1: He can be your commander. 2: He doesn’t have to be. He is an enabler to the mill strategy that can work as both a backup in your 99 or leading. Additionally, when he’s a creature, that 7 toughness helps to make himself an excellent miller.

Consuming Aberration - My personal favourite card of all time, if your deck is going well, Aberration will be a powerhouse of a card. It’s power and toughness equal to the number of cards in all opponent’s graveyards, in multiplayer that will always be incredible. Additionally, with the ability to grind each opponent whenever you cast a spell, thus enabling itself further, it on it’s own can be extremely powerful. Especially if your deck is on the control side. It also has synergies with Phenax.

Traumatize - Plain and simple. 5 mana, target player mills half their deck. Incredible.

Mindcrank - Turns any damage dealt to an opponent into incidental mill, thus giving your the option to change your strategy around as you need to. It might not do anything as soon as it enters the battlefield, but there are very many creatures that can use the number of cards in a graveyard to be strong.

Keening Stone - It might not seem like a lot at first, but will only get better with time. More useful as a final blow-out technique or as a timed milling trigger than methodical, even turn, milling. Also, combos with Traumatize.

Memory Erosion - Featuring the talented actor Nick Cage, Memory Erosion punishes your opponent for doing… well… anything (except play lands). What Consuming Aberration is to your spells, Erosion is to your opponent… except it still hits them. A solid card against your friend who plays storm (yes, we all have one).

Mind Grind - This card only gets better with age. While I don’t usually like to play cards with variable costs, it’s hard to deny their raw power. Mind Grind, allowing you to grind X gives decks that run lots of mana stones, or ways of generating lots of mana the ability to rip through someone’s deck. To any other deck, all you need is 37 mana to simply win. Sure, that might be a stretch, but it’s EDH, it’s meant to be a little janky.

Mind Funeral - A bit of an uncertain card. Extremely powerful in formats like Modern, Mind Funeral won’t be quite as powerful in EDH. More lands, less effect, however I believe that the card is still very useful. More powerful than Mind Grind by default, it can be a cheap method of milling quickly.

Quick round of honourable mentions and the reason they were cut. They are a good place to go if you want to start evolving your deck:

-Nephalia Drownyard - Not a spell, a little too slow.
-Tunnel Vision - Strictly a buildaround card. It’s great if you know your opponents deck and better if you can seal a card to the bottom. Otherwise, could easily do nothing.
-Glimpse the Unthinkable -

I rest my case
-Nemesis of Reason - I would argue that Phenax is a better card, but if you disagree that’s cool. It’s also $10
-Sphinx’s Tutelage - I really don’t have a particularly good reason. I believe that it just relies on your drawing than on them milling. However, it’s a good card.
-Grindstone - Really not too crash-hot in EDH since Painter’s Servant is banned. Too slow and taps itself. Worse than Tutelage in this case

Please excuse yet another long post. If you would rather shorter articles, please contact me directly
