Sunday is wind-down day: there are no panels, people are checking out...very quiet after the wildness of Saturday with the Pawpet Show, the big dance, Panels.


Sunday is also a great day to finally get a chance to slack out and talk with people. I love this low-key day. In previous years I've gone to the zoo, explored the city, visited Kaiserfest.

For the first time I joined the big expedition to the Schnitzel Temple! This is supposed to be the best schnitzel in town and a large group makes a trek there on Sunday for lunch. Schnitzel Temple serves a 1kg (2.2lbs) schnitzel that-- if you finishi it and the sides-- gets your picture on the wall. I was amused by the several dogs that were on the wall: did they eat an entire schnitzel to get this honor? Very amused.

The dead dog party was well-attended and, again, a fine time to sit back and catch up with friends.

Looks like you are eating a manta ray!

Obviously one of the tapas they had by way of a starter. =:)

hehheh!... If that was just a starter, the main course must've been the size of a persian rug!

Nice photos! Don't forget the suits are not all mine, Karpour did as much if not more work on them than me. (in fact, I did almost no work on Tyler and Baseball, just some details)
And... Num8... ouch :P

Oops! Sorry, Karpour! What she says!

Both of your styles complement each other so well sometimes it's hard to see where one ends and the other begins!

All of the suits of House Karpour-Henriekeg are super-cute, though!

If you're in the vicinity of Fremont sometime, you could do worse than try My Thai. ^_^ (That said, it's been a few years now since I visited, and restaurants can change in months) I always deeply appreciated the way that their heat scale was genuine: mild, medium, hot, and fire. If you finished a fire dish, they'd come around to put your photo on the wall. So, yep, there's a wall of very red-faced people.. and yes, I was (am?) amongst them. ^_^;

Good place. Regardless of the heat, their food was always richly spiced - I can't abide timid cooking. (Delicate is entirely different, of course - sushi's a pinnacle of making the most of top quality ingredients with minimal alteration or augmentation)

Mmm, I really ought to start making plans for a suit next year. Not sure what basic strategy, though - I'm comfortable with foam, given Red, but if I want to bring my SL self into RL, I'd probably have to go with something more like a vacuuformed mask, to keep the size of the head down. On the other paw, I probably don't want to shrink that down too far, either.. hey ho. It'll probably go through at least a couple major revisions before any public demonstration. ^_^;

I'm actually not a big heat-eater. I -used- to be, back in the day-- but these days it's American-medium, at the most. I'll pass the recommendation on to friends of mine who -do- like the Indian-3 level of fire.

Current vogue for proportionate heads are resin/epoxy shells. There are a number of people who sell the blanks, so you can modify one of those and not have to deal with molds and resin.
