Why did it take me so long to get these up? Well, it’s been a rough year all the way around, and on top of everything else, my SD card died (or possibly fried – I was at the barn on a 90-degree day and my phone’s always had problems with overheating) before I was able to pull the BRSF 2019 pictures off. Fortunately I’d already posted a few to Instagram, but I kept hoping maybe the card would recover because all I can do with IG shots is embed them and I hate the way that looks and functions. It doesn’t look like that’s going to happen, though, so… Venture onward for a subpar photo experience and quick costume update, I guess?

Pardon the (Possible) Mess!

   Posted by Atra Materia in Admin

I’ve moved to a new domain and had to go back and manually change all my image links! At this point, everything should be pointing to the correct place, but there have been some issues with my photo links reverting from https to http and causing it to appear as if the site’s unsecure. I believe I’ve caught all those after a second round of edits, but you find further errors in the site, please let me know by emailing tailor -(at)- strangealchemy -(dot)- net!

BRSF 2019 – Coming Soon(ish)!

   Posted by Atra Materia in Admin

I went (of course)! And I have so many things to show you! (I love having someone who actually enjoys chasing me around with their finger permanently attached to the shutter button in search of the perfect shot.) Which means there are also so very many pictures to edit, and I’m wiped. >.> It may take a while, but they WILL be up when I can manage it!

Fandom Project – Team Rocket Redux

   Posted by Atra Materia in Fandom

(Click to embiggen!)

Quick update of the Team Rocket costume for Halloween 2016. The skirt and the life-sized Meowth remain the same, but the turtleneck is a new-to-me from the Goodwill one town over and now has a proper embroidered R emblem (purchased from Etsy, but my roommate got it for me and I couldn’t tell you what shop) instead of the sad, runny iron-ons. The gloves were picked up at Spirit Halloween specifically for this redo, and Wobuffet and Pumpkaboo were picked up because you can never have too many Pokémon plushies.

Right?
