OUTFITS

Textured Brass Cuff & Tan Lines

Due to a turn of events over the past weekend, I had the dubious honour of getting a last-minute seat at a free Fat Anvil Studios workshop at the library. It was my first time metalsmithing, which proved quite therapeutic, what with channeling all my repressed rage and so on into the creation of aesthetically-pleasing dents by way of hammering the brass rod each participant was given.

Tools used to create my custom textured brass cuff by Fat Anvil Studios.Done! I used a mix of two hammers to create my texture.

I thought that that was the worst of it, until last week Ottie discovered a dusting of unexplained, extraordinarily large dandruff while peering down at me. Turned out that the flakes littering the top of my head were dead, burnt scalp moulting off my head. I FUCKING GOT SCALP BURNT. GROSS. Good news was that the problem surfaced for only two days. From now on it’s wide-brimmed hats for me.

Also, I actually detest tan lines – not on other people and especially not on myself. One day I’ll find the time to compile a list of irrational pet peeves. The problem with these ticks is that my shoddy memory needs a visual jog in order for me to remember how much I hate them. I guess I have that going for me – blissful ignorance until triggered. 😂
