Question for the builders out there β€”Β how would you articulate the pedipalps of a peacock spider? I explain the problem a little more in this post: glowingskull.tumblr.com/post/1

It has been a month since I last shellacked, yet I still have shellac on my thumbnail. How.

I stopped by the local Ace Hardware to say hi and show them the head, because it has been a project they've seen me work on for years. My buddy there was just ecstatic to see this year's final product, which he had contributed some ideas to.

Hot glue guns often come with a small pack of glue sticks. This is enough for one (1) project.

When you buy your hot glue gun, buy a couple hundred sticks. You'll save time and shopping trips in the long run.

TFW you must abandon some of your larger-visibility Halloween plans in order to achieve the smaller-visibility, higher-happiness ones.

Six segments per pedipalp also explains the segmentation of the hairs better.

Plfaugh this explains so much.

Oh good lord, pedipalps have _six_ segments? No wonder the movements and structure of last year's head looked off last year.

> Pedipalps are composed of six segments or articles: the coxa, the trochanter, the femur, the short patella, the tibia, and the tarsus. In spiders, the coxae frequently have extensions called maxillae or gnathobases, which function as mouth parts with or without some contribution from the coxae of the anterior legs.

The Glowing Skull Kitchen Test Lab is pleased to report that an intermediary layer of superglue between the vinyl and the plexiglass performs admirably under heat and deformation, while retaining usable optical characteristics.

Show thread

Laying the vinyl over the plexiglass before heating and deforming the plexiglass does successfully improve the conformation of the film to the curved lens, but it doesn't actually bond the vinyl to the plexiglass.

So tomorrow I'll do deformation tests after applying cyanoacrylate glue between the vinyl and plexiglass, to join the layers and make them a single optical unit.

Here's hoping that superglue doesn't spontaneously combust at 370F.

This year's head will be an improvement to the head of last year. I'm focusing on pedipalps, chelicerae, and improved eye lenses.

I'm going to have to apply the shiny transparent vinyl to the plexiglass before heat-softening and curving it, apparently.

What's the best sort of body-friendly finish for a wooden sex toy that will not be inserted into orifices? Sand it until it's smooth, sure, but then what?

Shellac? Polyurethane? Hardening oils?

While cleaning today (silverfish 😦), I found a box labeled "undershirts and long underwear". It had been sealed since I moved out of my last apartment, in ~2017.

It contained several white undershirts, all waxy-smelling, which went to the trash, and some long underwear, which went to the wash.

And my ex's zentai. :goggling:

Upon further consideration, a spider-sona is neat beyond just making Halloween masks. But though they have enough limbs, they don't have _hands_.

I ate an entire 12" pizza yesterday for dinner, and wasn't hungry until a short snack around 5 p.m. today.
