Omaha got its first measurable snowfall of the season Thursday night. Which meant the five 11-month old lion cubs at Henry Doorly Zoo got their first chance to experience snow yesterday.

First there was this: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2013/07/02/my-new-convention-harassment-policy/

And then a gentleman in the Pacific Northwest put together a guide to regional conventions and their harassment policies (or lack thereof): http://offthewrittenpath.com/2013/09/12/anti-harassment-policies-at-conventions-in-the-pacific-northwest/

I'm thinking about putting together a similar guide for Midwestern conventions, but does anyone know if one's already in the works? No point in duplicate efforts, after all. Besides, if I start putting a guide together I'll need to set up a decoy e-mail and separate site to keep the rape/death threats off my LJ.

She lives!

Time constraints meant not nearly as much beading as I'd wanted. There are white beads on the tips of the skirt lace, and the entire length of the bodice lace. I added a strip of gold ribbon as a "belt" because a friend of mine watches Say Yes To The Dress and it seems like 75% of the gowns on that show have some sort of fancy sash/belt/waist ornamentation.

Update: Bridezilla won "Member's Choice"! Here she is "posing" with her ribbon:

More in-progress pictures, this time a joint Doll Costume contest entry that a friend and I are doing.

... All of you have heard the term "Bridezilla", right?

I've been working on my entry for the CC31 Historical Masquerade for a while, and some of my online friends wanted to see pictures.

I was having some problems with online zoo membership renewal, so I went over to Henry Doorly Zoo after Easter breakfast to take care of that. Of course, I had to bring my camera for a lion cub visit.

They've just turned three months old.

I just got home the other day after spending two days in Chicago, most of it at the Museum of Science and Industry. It's definitely worth visiting; just plan on comfortable shoes, because it's spread out and there's a lot of walking.

First batch of picturesCollapse )

I'll be visiting Chicago for a few days next month. I'm open for suggestions on good places to eat.

The hotel is west of O'Hare, but we'll be spending a lot of time at the Museum of Science and Industry, either area is good. I'm not a fan of Mexican or super-spicy food.

Have you ever met anyone famous?

I've met Adam Savage, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara from MythBusters. Still haven't met Kari or Jamie ....
