Very much up and down. Most of the down was not serious and the serious ones are not as serious as what they could have been.


 


So I saw my surgeon today. I do need surgery but probably not as intensive as it could be!


That’s the good news.


The bad news is that it may be that my hands naturally fuse together.


On the other hand there is a partial replacement option!!!


Bad news is it still involves chopping the end of both ulnars and replacing them with metal.


 


My hands though show nerve impingement. Radial and carpal.


Good news is the carpal tunnel should be an “easy” fix- mean done a heck of a lot- but it is more surgery. Basically my hands are going to be a mess of scars.


Good news is I am test driving some injections to see if surgery is going to help- no point if the damage has been done, but either way this is a fairly non invasive kind of trial 🙂 My hands do feel a little on fire so some NSAIDs tonight.


 


Good news- found my Mothma Fabric!!


Bad news it isn’t actually able to be de-coloured to white.


Good news is I can bring it in as the lovely lady at the counter was on the store’s social media tonight and said to bring it in to exchange 🙂


Also good is there is a cheaper fabric that was very close so I should be able to swap length for length and get some pins or something to make up the difference 🙂 It will need to be washed in hot soapy water and fulled but it is the closest I have found in a decade of searching.


 


And finally.. turns out I did not have a Dromund Kaas Stronghold, but it was all of 5 credits to buy.

In the last few years I have had to give up my domain name (well my domain had high rankings and a lot to like about it, but my profile was getting lost because I am not a business and do not have the ability to pay for traffic boost, so it lost visibility.)


I’d also basically be paying extra to give stuff away for free so..


But I have in that time seen my costume work, my output of my research, used to inspire others almost down to the last bead, but without credit. This is of course frustrating, but I’m not sure many people realise why. Or how I can spot that influence (because those details are what I worked very hard to get “right” and I know the stages of getting there.)


I understand not being able to credit my work- it was lost, you have to find my older site on web archive now. And while that’s great it’s not easy to just say “I remember a site, what was it, had that frock?” Because smart as google’s AI is it’s not going to work! (though image search is a thing, pop that picture in and see who else has saved that link.)


So I do get it, but even just saying “I was inspired by a costumer I can no longer find online” would have been enough for me to pop up and ask “was that me? Sorry, here is my frock, and here is everything I wrote and why I chose these specific interpretations to fill in the missing information. ”


Well I would have rebuilt those pages faster and put all that in 😉


And that’s the other side of the frustration. I interpreted a few portraits having hunted out references that are not in fact linked from my site, but that do give some credence to those decisions. At the moment there is little explanation for why I decided on one option and not another. It’s being assumed that’s how it was because that’s how I did it.


So in some ways this makes me very torn about sharing more information here. Due to the time gap of domain moving, and the hacking, it is now very hard to find me except from my social media accounts. My site is not trusted because of the breach. So because of other people I have lost a good decade of reputation online.


That said while wordpress is not exactly the easiest platform to get archive back in place I will try. It may be costume by costume but I do plan on making sure all the dates for posts are accurate.


A lot of previous research is indeed on my to do list for this year- a lot of work last year has laid foundations for this year.


But much of that needs that historic trail to give it value and that is gone forever. Or maybe I do just put in a webarchive link front and centre.. yeah.

I had to do a bit of plugin shuffling so let’s hope!

One more dreamwidth test as I had a conflicting plugin!
