nearly a month has passed since
i posted on the wing dress the last time
today, i share with you
the totally boring process of
placing the wing on the dress
totally boring to read about, that is
i usually have pretty swell time but
hanging out with me during such time
would be like death for you...
start with blank paper dress
using the paper thin enough to trace
such paper running out hence
after staring at the blank dress
pinned on a sewing body awhile
(warned yu it's pretty dreary)
i started to just roughly trace
part of one of the
then moved it about a bit and
traced another feather (circled) from
another part of the same drawing
flipped the drawing and
taped it onto the window
then trace the reversed wing
then had another look
i spend however long enough time
until i start to see the patterns on it
then i'd mark what i see before it dissapears
even i had enough of
gazing upon the rough sketches...
based on what i've done above,
tracing feathers in sharp, clear lines
that seem appropriate to the general plan
have i told you by the way that
i have a half sister on uranus?
there's some mysterious twist in my family tree...
she was here visiting the earth on assignment
to research on what she calls "the planet of hypes"
i told her, hype? i ain't takin part in that
she said, nahh, if you live here you cannot not to
so i threw her back on her spaceship
but before i did i managed to
snatch a few shots with her
posing in my paper dress
see, that's my 1/2 sista
posing like that person from iceland
well, my object for revealing the family complexity was
to tell you that,
to get a sense of the wing's 'movement',
i even put the paper thing on
and have a long look into the mirror
until i see something...
i told you it's
on the next post, i will talk about
capturing the velocity on the dress
thanks for reading!!
