Question for the #fursuit builders out there — how would you articulate the pedipalps of a peacock spider? I explain the problem a little more in this post: https://glowingskull.tumblr.com/post/175664173748/regarding-jaws
The pedipalp is composed of two limb segments joined by a simple hinge, and the proximal segment is attached to the head with another simple hinge.
But the angle of the hinges is such that the distal segment is splayed in an unnatural fashion.
The only ways I can see to fix this are:
1. Cut the proximal segment in half, drill holes, reattach at angle
2. Ditch the extant distal segment, and rebuild to accommodate the hinge at an angle.
Finally making more eyes for the #maratus, and redoing the pedipalps.
family, negative USpol, venting
Called home to tell parents that, should comms be lost in the event of escalation, that I do love them.
One parent asked whether I worried about that happening. I replied that I had no faith that the lack-of-leadership in the WH would avoid escalating that high. Said parent started on a thread about how the Iran situation was the fault of anyone-but-this-administration.
Other parent cut first parent off, pointing out that that wasn't why I called. ❤️
I suppose it's time for #TMITuesday. Feel free to grab an askhole.io prompt, draw a CAH black card, or roll your Rory's Story Cubes for a prompt.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
We are looking for short story submissions that explore the implications of non-cisgender life within the context of furry. There is no restriction on gender of characters or perceived orientation, including anywhere on the asexuality spectrum. Though the set and setting may be tough and the plot may involve hardships, the characters should be treated with sensitivity and care.
Open December 1!
I make skulls and similar things, primarily using papercraft techniques. Expect gender and fashion introspection here.
