Smart casual

Here you go, my contribution to Gillian's Flickr Tranny Day

This is the outfit I considered wearing for Transpocalypse 2007, but decided not to, as it was a bit flashy for a restaurant.

Check out my Flickr Stream for a few more photos, including my retro Eighties look. (Lopsided ponytail and white stilettos!)

Gillian has declared on her blog that due to the trans-apathy around, she is committing to posting a picture of herself in girls clothes on Flickr.

Inspired by Gillian's enthusiasm I have taken this pledge too, and today took my pictures. They will be posted on Flickr on Saturday 29th March 2008.

Don't worry, I'll do a blog entry to remind you!

Fighter launch, originally uploaded by PandoraCaitiff.

I've recently finished watching the second season of Batlestar Galactica on DVD. As well as making me sad, angry, jubilant and excited all at the same time, it also rekindled my interest in space battles.

As a result I dug out some cardboard space craft I had made a long time ago for Ground Zero Games' "Full Thrust" game. They were a bit ratty, and had crudely made stands, so I gave them a touch up with paint, gave them a light wash of black paint to show "battle damage", and then a white drybrush to highlight the edges.

Once I'd done that, I noticed that the fleet was a bit lacking in smaller support craft so sat down and designed, assembled and painted some more based on the same stylistic principles as the existing ships.

Finally I just had to create a few civilian ships and two Cylon-esque carriers for enemies.

My plan is to referee a game at my local club where the not-Cylons ambush a small fleet and have to cause as much damage as possible before the FTL drives come online and allow the fleet to jump away.

"I'm glad it had a happy ending..."

Remember last summer I had a little hoo-hah with V, the proprietor of Rasputin's nightclub?

(Don't worry if you don't, Although I'm not going to link to it and open old wounds)

I went into the club last night for the first time in several months. And late in the evening V called me aside for a little chat. It seems that while Googling her club's name she found my post, and the responses. And was none too thrilled.

Which actually has led to something good.

With the benefit of hindsight, and several months of cool down, we have now made our peace; and the ladies loo is available to me as long as I ask.

Job's a good-'un.

New picture

Thanks to my friend Chrissy B I now have a better picture of my outfit.

I'm much happier with that picture. Its clearer, and you can see the whole outfit.
