Corset Update 2

I'm down to the final stretch, that being finishing off the edging and embroidering the feathers to keep the stays in place.  I ended up having to make a modesty panel for it; the gap at the back is unsightly otherwise.  (Something to keep in mind for the next time I use this pattern!)

 

I'll have pictures up when I'm finished.

There is no heart without you

The wound lies deep, like the ocean floor

The sin is red, growing paler in death

There is no heart without you.

There are two kinds of battles. Battles that protect lives and battles that protect honor.

In a way, everything we have to protect comes down to one thing…

The heart.

Whenever people grow close… a heart is born between…

Steampunk World's Fair: Convention Report

We arrived just in time Friday for me to check in to the room and go to the first presentation I wanted to see; Mark Donnelly's Bartitsu class. It had been scheduled for outside but rain and an apparent tornado watch had canceled all outdoor activities. We started anyway, just a bunch of friends having an active discussion, in spite of the rain. After a time, however, the rain… Continue

Journal Entry- October 5th, 1891

Sgt. Foust

--

We got a chance to get a look at a little more of Cubana from the air today.  A rich planter to the East of Camp Alfred had declared his refusal to trade with Americans now that we’ve come, and it was the opinion of the Secretary of the Navy that we Marines might be useful in convincing the fellow to the contrary.  There was a small dirigible available to us (our heavy assault craft have all been sent to Florida for an overhaul… likely some of Captain Ciaran’s…
