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
Let us celebrate the #TMItuesday with gendered, sexual, and religious questions, or other questions which may get you more of an answer than you wanted.
@typhlosion What are you using to learn toki pona?
@else reading about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GE_Evolution_Series because of https://ralfmaximus.tumblr.com/post/190711329341/picsthatmakeyougohmm-hmmm-another-centimeter when I came across the most unexpected additional equipment description. Check out the Canadian National Railways section.
Here's how I built this 2019's Halloween spider head: https://irradiate.space/skulls/maratus/construction/
Spent a chunk of today doing more documentation of the 2019 and 2018 #Maratus head builds; wrapping up the bit for construction of the skull itself.
I'm still not done with the new pedipalps, so I'll move on to documenting the eyes.
Shall tonight be a #TMITuesday? I decree it so! Ask away, ye curious.
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.
I make skulls and similar things, primarily using papercraft techniques. Expect gender and fashion introspection here.
