Managed to get a few things done today. Mounted some shelf brackets in the 4'x10' space I call the sump pump hallway, which is tucked away in the unfinished portion of the basement. The bits of lumber, foam padding and carpet that were cluttering that niche are now somewhat organized. My goal was to have the space for a worm farm in the basement. I may never have it, but I needed the space clear for it to even be possible. 

I have started looking at leather ammo pouches on ebay or the steampunk outfit. One thing that occurred to me is that whenever I do a tusken raider costume instead of doing the vintage ammo belt (WW2 surplus) I can get some not quite as old ammo pouches and string them on a leather belt for the same general look. I'm not into making an exact replica of a costume, I'm of the "good enough is close enough" mentality, and sometimes I make the changes that I think the original should have had all along. I won't get the costume done anytime soon, probably not this year, but I'm watching auctions to see if deals pop up that could be used for both steampunk and tusken raider. At some point I'll get a tusken raider mask kit and start on the whole outfit.

It's time to start making money for Archon. Next week I"m going to start doing bagel and challah bake sales to get some cash saved up for the convention.
