NASA has just released some amazing high resolution files of Pluto.
The resolution is more than good enough to create a 3D print of the planet, at something like a room sized scale, and maintain all of the details captured, in my opinion. If done smaller, you’ll even lose some details! That is, the information might be finer than the 3D printing technology that is currently available!
So the only thing remaining for me to ask is who will be the first?
I think that would be quite something to see, Pluto in 3D compared to just a speck of light we knew of its appearance only a short prior to whenever they get enough information to print the 3D model!
At the end of last 2013, I took a corset making course with a friend in the Atlantic Sewing Guild. Seems I haven’t posted about it because I never got a picture of how well it fitted on my model, rather than the picture on my dress form below.
But aside from learning to make corsets, I was also taking the course to learn to do sexy bodices for dresses. Most of the pics below, and why I’m posting this, is to show the sorts of ideas I had in mind. I wasn’t dreaming of anything of such professional quality for starters, of course, but basically down the same road.

The pattern was easy enough, but I was using a heavier fabric with embroidery that resembled Chinese brocade, but wasn’t. I was only starting out and couldn’t afford to make mistakes costly by investing in expensive fabrics. Because of this slightly heavier fabric, I lined the pattern to make it wear comfortably. This was for Mom, after all!
In lining the jacket, I basically threw out the pattern instructions. I don’t follow instructions well, anyway. Continue reading
Below is a gallery of the new Nike NFL uniforms. Have a look and take the poll to tell people if you like them. You can also comment. Tell me what you think, and I’ll tell you what I think… if you care for what I think. 🙂
This gallery is easier to view than the NFL site’s gallery because there are no frequent advertisements interrupting your viewing here, and the thumbnails are labeled and in order! Seriously, NFL.com, you can do much better than that!
