I’ve got a dead mage strapped to my back, a beastman strapped to my chest, a ratman on my shoulders providing cover fire, and two rages left for today… I don’t care what you say, I’m gonna eat that demon.

Pain is still a present factor. Almost out of the prescrip pain pills. So, I’ll switch to non prescrip if I need it. Upside though, is that I think part of the pain is the fact that I can’t eat the foods I’m craving. Because eating what I can eat seems to help. (Or it’s a placebo. If it’s a placebo, let me run with it. That’s less pain meds I”m taking)
I spent the morning asleep. I could probably easily go back to sleep now. But I’m trying to get more food into me.
You hear all these “you’re not a real fan unless” and it lists a hundred things, but I met a dude today who saw my Deadpool pin and asked what my favorite story arc was, and I explained that while I loved Deadpool, I was new to Marvel (I only really got into it a year and a half ago) and hadn’t been able to find a lot of the comics. Instead of making a face or a derogatory comment, he just offered to send me all the stuff he had. That is a true fan.
See this is the only fan reaction that makes *sense* to me. “OOH OOH YOU LIKE A THING I LIKE! WAIT YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEM FINDING MATERIALS? LET ME SHARE WITH YOU THE THING I LIKE!”
Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.
I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”
It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes. It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool. Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.
That rich red is only one application too. Plus it smells great, lol.
So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.
this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*
