We got the board game The Binding of Isaac Four Souls as a Kickstarter reward, and have finally started playing it. It is pretty well balanced, and the rules are easy to pick up. We have yet to play with more than 2 players, though, and I think that would be an even better experience (since with 2 players, we are disinclined to make bargains).
Alright youz guyz, it is winter yet again, and that means… time to knit a new sweater!!! I saw this yarn and I absolutely fell in love it it, so we’ll see how it turns out…
For the Dagoth Ur costume hands (to go with the Dagoth Ur Mask), I initially did a few trial runs with gluing the nails onto my hands and painting my hands with the facepaint, but I soon ended up with facepaint on everything. So I elected to instead make gloves. Luckily the cloth wrist (and ankle) wraps cover all the seams, so I don’t have to worry about that.
First, I glued long pointy nails onto grey gloves. I used superglue, because they don’t ever need to come off, so I didn’t bother with nail glue:
Then I dry-brushed black onto the gloves, to bring out hand/finger details, and to make the nails look like they reach really far back onto the finger. I went back and fourth for weeks trying to decide if I should make the nails red (the way Dagoth Ur’s nails actually appear) or black (which I thought would look scarier). I went with black, and I don’t know whether that was the right call. I guess I could always re-paint them red?
And, much to my surprise, the gloves were thin enough that I could still operate my phone with them on…
