I've been waiting and waiting for Spirit, Roo's Bearded Dragon to shed again so I can harvest his skin to put into my mini bottles. Boomslang skin anyone? The tricky part is, the little bugger EATS the skin he sheds so I have to be really quick to get it, OR peel it off of him which I think is bad and hurts him, because he does NOT seem to like it... and Roo yells that I'm hurting him when I do it. So I've just been watching and waiting patiently to swoop in and steal his shedded skin. This is all I could manage to get!! Sheesh. And he only sheds maybe once every month and a half or less. It does look cool. That's Roo's hand in the picture.
I attempted to make a no-sew (I can't really sew) invisibility cape. The one I, myself, imagined when I read the books- not the one in the movie which is this furry looking thing. In the books it's described as silver and "like water woven into fabric." I am not happy with how this cape turned out. The fabric is too stiff so it won't hang in nice drapes around my mini model, and I just cut it out haphazardly with no pattern and it's too short in the front. I think it's going in the TRASH! The only thing I like is how it's kind of see through... it almost gives a pretense of invisibility.
