KK Chat -- 9 October 2016
« on: October 09, 2016, 07:28:31 pm »
Oct 09 19:09:49 *   KK has joined
Oct 09 19:09:52 <Evie>   We've had hurricane force winds make it this far inland (albeit only on very rare occasions) without anything more than a mild power flicker.  A week later, we'll have a gentle rainstorm and power will go out for hours.  You just never know around here.
Oct 09 19:09:56 <DF64>   we were dry the whole time--hi kk
Oct 09 19:10:00 <Laurna>   Oh very loving and sweet  that is until you have corn chips
Oct 09 19:10:02 <Jemler>   are the Cavaliers Mouseketeers?
Oct 09 19:10:03 <DesertRose>   Hi KK
Oct 09 19:10:04 <BalanceTheEnergies>   Hello KK
Oct 09 19:10:05 <The_Bee>   Hi BTE and KK
Oct 09 19:10:07 <Evie>   Hi KK
Oct 09 19:10:07 <DesertRose>   Rehi bal
Oct 09 19:10:08 <Jemler>   hi kk
Oct 09 19:10:11 <DesertRose>   rehi BalanceTheEnergies
Oct 09 19:10:11 <Laurna>   Hi KK
Oct 09 19:10:26 <KK>   Hello, all.
Oct 09 19:10:42 <The_Bee>   How was your week, KK?
Oct 09 19:10:59 <KK>   Busy with administrivia.
Oct 09 19:11:19 <DesertRose>   Oh that sounds fun.
Oct 09 19:11:25 <Jemler>   ikk, if you don't make it in next week, have a happy birthday!
Oct 09 19:11:27 *   DesertRose says with heavy sarcasm.
Oct 09 19:12:16 *   Evie seconds DR's comment with lowfat sarcasm
Oct 09 19:12:33 <KK>   I should be here.
Oct 09 19:13:02 <KK>   No special plans for the birthday, but we'll probably go out to dinner.
Oct 09 19:13:11 <The_Bee>   Are you finally done with the adminstrivia?
Oct 09 19:13:28 <DesertRose>   Hopefully your birthday won't get delayed endlessly like my mom's has been this year!
Oct 09 19:13:29 <KK>   Nope.  It goes on and on.
Oct 09 19:14:08 <Evie>   Yesterday I attended the SCA Coronation of a young man who would probably not been King now if I hadn't invited a coworker and her 8 year old son to visit an event with us over two decades ago.  It's an odd feeling, swearing fealty to a man you remember as a busy little boy.  :-)
Oct 09 19:14:28 <DesertRose>   My mom's actual birthday was in August, and for various and sundry reasons, we haven't celebrated it.  We were going to do it this past Friday, but Thank You So Much, Hurricane Matthew, that didn't happen.
Oct 09 19:14:35 <Evie>   I had a sudden fellow feeling with Morgan and Duncan!
Oct 09 19:14:38 <KK>   Hope to maybe take my mom over to the Green Bank observatory in WV.  Big radio telescopes.  We were going to go in July, but then WV got flooded out.
Oct 09 19:14:41 <The_Bee>   Long Live the King!
Oct 09 19:15:11 <DF64>   my mom was here in florida last weekend from nebraska
Oct 09 19:15:13 <KK>   Cool, Evie.
Oct 09 19:15:24 <Jemler>   did the king comfirm you in your titles?
Oct 09 19:16:04 *   JerushaonPhone (Mibbit@4CA975.E72DF0.A50353.797DE7) has joined
Oct 09 19:16:14 <DesertRose>   Hi JerushaonPhone
Oct 09 19:16:15 <The_Bee>   Hi Jerusha
Oct 09 19:16:17 <Jemler>   hi jerusha
Oct 09 19:16:23 <BalanceTheEnergies>   Hello Jerusha
Oct 09 19:16:24 <Evie>   Hi Jerusha
Oct 09 19:16:38 <JerushaonPhone>   Hi Everyone
Oct 09 19:16:49 <KK>   Great devotion, JerushaonPhone. :D
Oct 09 19:16:55 <Evie>   No need, Jemler, since I'm not landed anymore.  :-)
Oct 09 19:16:58 <DF64>   hi jerusha
Oct 09 19:17:21 <JerushaonPhone>   At the cottage.
Oct 09 19:17:48 <BalanceTheEnergies>   Vacation or weather displaced?
Oct 09 19:18:10 <JerushaonPhone>   You are up in the air, Evie?
Oct 09 19:18:17 <KK>   Where is Matthew now--or its remnants?
Oct 09 19:18:25 <Jemler>   why were you attainted?
Oct 09 19:18:39 <KK>   No, she retired, Jemler.
Oct 09 19:18:40 <BalanceTheEnergies>   I thought it was going out to sea KK
Oct 09 19:18:43 <JerushaonPhone>   Canadian thanksgiving long weekend
Oct 09 19:18:52 <Evie>   LOL!  No, I'm not a landed Baroness anymore (not baroness of a particular territory), just a Court Baroness.
Oct 09 19:19:02 <DF64>   headed back out to sea--may head back towards south florida
Oct 09 19:19:15 <The_Bee>   heading south, last I heard.  We got some much-needed rain
Oct 09 19:19:23 <Evie>   I ran screaming.  ;-)
Oct 09 19:19:47 <KK>   Skipped So Fla so it's going back to catch it on the second pass?
Oct 09 19:19:56 <JerushaonPhone>   From being landed?
Oct 09 19:19:57 <Jemler>   are you addressed as "My Lady Baroness, or "Her Courtship"? :)
Oct 09 19:19:59 <DF64>   up near new York--new England actually
Oct 09 19:20:33 <Laurna>   This morning I was rereading Kelson's betrothal to Araxie. Before I had always been on Kelson's hardship, but this time I was thinking of the sweet princess and how she was determined to make it a good match even when Kelson was so unsure.  Good for her.
Oct 09 19:20:57 <Evie>   We were Baron/Baroness of Iron Mtn (B'ham, AL) for nearly a decade, I think, so it was time for a change, for sanity's sake if nothing else.  It's hard to be a Landed while raising small children.
Oct 09 19:21:18 <Jemler>   meaning she was already planning out her streategy to train him? :)
Oct 09 19:21:45 <DF64>   radar has it near New England--early reports thought it might hit florida again but kept going up east coast
Oct 09 19:21:53 <Laurna>   It is always a good women who makes a good man.  Yes?
Oct 09 19:22:09 <Evie>   I'm usually addressed as "Hey, Jamelyn, want some pizza?" but "Your Excellency" is the more formal style of address.  :-D
Oct 09 19:22:09 <KK>   One has to wonder what it must have been like in the past, when most high-ranking marriages were arranged--though some of them turned out to be love-matches as well.  They apparently grew into the relationships.
Oct 09 19:22:52 <JerushaonPhone>   I'm a landed immigrant in Canada, but no one calls me Baroness 😁
Oct 09 19:22:54 <DF64>   or her royal majesty
Oct 09 19:23:42 <BalanceTheEnergies>   I was a lady in an imperial court some years ago, but that's as close to ladylike as I've ever gotten. :)
Oct 09 19:24:40 <KK>   What's your SCA name, Evie?  Somehow I always though it was Evie Delacourt.
Oct 09 19:24:46 <Laurna>   Can you call owning one Acre of land, a landed lady.  then That would be me,  but somehow  I doubt it.
Oct 09 19:24:49 <KK>   thought
Oct 09 19:25:06 <Evie>   Formally it's Jamys Ellyn Rothesay of Bannatyne Hall, but I'm usually called Jamelyn
Oct 09 19:25:23 <Laurna>   wow
Oct 09 19:25:47 <DesertRose>   My daughter's godson has come over to stay for a few days (his mom has injured her back and her parents have to work), and he is a dear, sweet, bright child, but he is four, and four-year-olds are bad at volume control.  He has gone to bed, and let the angels sing Hallelujah.
Oct 09 19:26:02 <Evie>   That's the result of picking out a name from a romance novel and then having to be really creative in researching something documentable to period that will let you keep the nickname. :-D
Oct 09 19:26:04 <The_Bee>   My niece's SCA name is Magdalena something.
Oct 09 19:26:19 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 09 19:26:27 <Evie>   LOL, DR
Oct 09 19:26:58 <DesertRose>   I have a headache that's been going on for the last few days; otherwise I wouldn't really mind the four-year-old child voice laughing and playing.
Oct 09 19:27:06 <DF64>   :D
Oct 09 19:27:09 <Laurna>   My trouble is I want to be ME when I go back intime.  not someone else
Oct 09 19:27:27 <Laurna>   Oh dear DR
Oct 09 19:27:34 <JerushaonPhone>   Give him a toy drum DR, then worry about volume control
Oct 09 19:27:35 <Evie>   I'm still me, I'm just me with a name I got to pick out for myself.  ;-)
Oct 09 19:27:45 *   DF64 has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Oct 09 19:27:52 <DesertRose>   Mine is Katherine la Vynour, which means Katherine the Vintner, which honestly just gives my persona an excuse to know Chaucer's family, since Chaucer's dad was a vintner in London and so is my persona.
Oct 09 19:28:01 <DesertRose>   Heavens no.
Oct 09 19:28:14 <DesertRose>   I do NOT give young children noisy toys unless I hate their parents.
Oct 09 19:28:20 <DesertRose>   And sometimes not even then.
Oct 09 19:28:32 <Jemler>   Jean-Claude von Adlerstaat?
Oct 09 19:28:47 <Evie>   What about DH, Jemler?
Oct 09 19:29:11 <JerushaonPhone>   I have much to owe my SIL - lots of noisy presents

Oct 09 19:29:27 <Jemler>   AS XXVIII - ASXXXIV (1994 - 1999)
Oct 09 19:29:32 <JerushaonPhone>   Hi DF64
Oct 09 19:29:32 <DF64>   bad mibbit
Oct 09 19:29:54 <DesertRose>   One of DD's friends gave her an alarm clock for one birthday, and it played (LOUDLY) the Spongebob Squarepants theme song.
Oct 09 19:29:57 <Jemler>   Iron Mountain Barony
Oct 09 19:29:57 <Evie>   Was it really only 5 years?  Felt like ten.  :-D
Oct 09 19:30:02 <DesertRose>   I grew to despise that thing in very short order.
Oct 09 19:30:38 <Jemler>   called Jamyslyn.
Oct 09 19:30:50 <Evie>   My old phone used to wake me up in Stephen Fry's voice as Jeeves the Butler.
Oct 09 19:31:08 <The_Bee>   When my broth's kids were small, my sister Sue gave a toy called"Wacky Melon" for Christmas.  His wife  threatened  to give Sue's kids something even noisier the following Christmas.
Oct 09 19:31:12 <Evie>   "Jamyslyn" is a typo if it says that.  It should be Jamelyn
Oct 09 19:31:15 <JerushaonPhone>   Could be worse
Oct 09 19:31:21 <Jemler>   mine just plays the pink panther theme.
Oct 09 19:31:26 <DesertRose>   That would be infinitely preferably to "OHHHHHH, Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?!" at ear-splitting volume levels.
Oct 09 19:32:36 <DesertRose>   My phone currently reminds me to take my medications in Pres. Obama's voice.
Oct 09 19:33:01 <KK>   How horrendous, DR.
Oct 09 19:33:03 <JerushaonPhone>   Any new writing, KK?
Oct 09 19:33:11 <BalanceTheEnergies>   I just use the cello tone that came with the phone.
Oct 09 19:33:15 <KK>   Alas, no.
Oct 09 19:33:50 <DesertRose>   Because the basic noise (a pill bottle rattling) got old, my stepdad uses the Star Wars set of tones to remind him to take his meds, the Gandalf voice got creepy after a while, and none of the other possibilities were remotely appealing.
Oct 09 19:34:00 <KK>   Mine makes very soft sea-sounds a couple of minutes before it's set to go off, then plays a gentle song.  Not bad.
Oct 09 19:34:11 <JerushaonPhone>   That is scary, DR (too much authority)
Oct 09 19:34:32 <The_Bee>   Mine plays the tune that came with the phone.
Oct 09 19:34:47 <DesertRose>   No, not really.
Oct 09 19:35:29 <DesertRose>   He doesn't yell.  He just reminds me.
Oct 09 19:35:53 <JerushaonPhone>   That is OK the
Oct 09 19:36:02 <JerushaonPhone>   Then
Oct 09 19:36:03 <Laurna>   KK I hate to ask this. but I have been playing with Coroth Castle layout... Do you have a basic layout that you would be willing to share?
Oct 09 19:36:11 <The_Bee>   How did you get a recording of obama talking about your medicine?
Oct 09 19:36:23 <Evie>   Where is my phone app with Duncan's voice gently reminding me to take my pills?  I'd start taking pills if that happened!
Oct 09 19:36:42 <Laurna>   lol Evie

Oct 09 19:37:09 <DesertRose>   Hi bynw
Oct 09 19:37:19 <JerushaonPhone>   Hi  Bynw
Oct 09 19:37:32 <KK>   Martine did some wonderful building plans a few years back.  I suppose I ought to ask whether it would be ok to post them on the website.
Oct 09 19:37:32 <DesertRose>   It's almost certainly someone doing a good impression, Bee.
Oct 09 19:37:49 <Evie>   Yes pleeeeeeaaaassseee, KK!
Oct 09 19:37:57 <Laurna>   Really......!!!!!
Oct 09 19:37:59 <Evie>   I love maps, floor plans, etc.!
Oct 09 19:38:12 <DesertRose>   The app is called MediSafe, and it's free on Android (probably also on Apple, but I don't know for sure).
Oct 09 19:38:16 <BalanceTheEnergies>   Possibly editing from Obama audio DR?
Oct 09 19:38:27 <Evie>   Is the RPG version of Deryni Magic permanently shelved?
Oct 09 19:38:33 <Laurna>   I posted what I was playing with  but I am sure it is no where near the reall thing.
Oct 09 19:38:37 <DesertRose>   Possibly, but I doubt he's said the word "meds" that often in speeches.
Oct 09 19:39:10 <Evie>   Could just be a skilled voice impersonator
Oct 09 19:39:12 <BalanceTheEnergies>   Possibly material edited from the ACA fight?
Oct 09 19:39:38 <KK>   Don't know, Evie.  I would assume so.
Oct 09 19:39:58 <Evie>   I have a vinyl record somewhere of Rich Little (I think that was the comedian's name) doing voice impersonations of several past Presidents and celebrities from the 1980s and before.
Oct 09 19:40:39 <DF64>   yes you did
Oct 09 19:40:41 <Evie>   Given that it was originally scheduled to come out shortly after the RPG sourcebook, but hasn't done so, I've started losing hope of ever seeing it
Oct 09 19:40:47 <The_Bee>   Maybe soneone just asked him, "Mr. President, please tell DesertRose to take her meds."
Oct 09 19:40:54 <Evie>   LOL!
Oct 09 19:40:55 <DF64>   rich little did great impressions
Oct 09 19:40:59 <Jemler>   DR, MediSafe by Vincent Thillerot?
Oct 09 19:41:52 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 09 19:42:05 <DesertRose>   Jemler, I'm not sure who makes it.  It's just a phone app.
Oct 09 19:42:33 <The_Bee>   Who was the guy who did Kennedy family impressions?
Oct 09 19:42:45 <Jemler>   well i found it for ios
Oct 09 19:44:21 <JerushaonPhone>   It's very quiet
Oct 09 19:45:04 <Evie>   Sorry, distracted for a minute
Oct 09 19:45:33 <DesertRose>   I went noodling around on my phone to see if I could find the designer for the Android version of MediSafe, but no joy.
Oct 09 19:45:35 <JerushaonPhone>   Gigi or Luke?
Oct 09 19:45:48 <DesertRose>   It just says that the copyright is held by the MediSafe Project.
Oct 09 19:45:52 <Laurna>   My cell phone is never charged and I don't think I have any apps on it.

Oct 09 19:46:35 <JerushaonPhone>   Misfit attacks?
Oct 09 19:46:38 <Evie>   LOL, Jerusha! For once, neither.  I've been reposting BoP on FFN and just noticed someone had posted a review
Oct 09 19:46:53 <Laurna>   Cool Evie
Oct 09 19:46:56 <Evie>   and now phone call
Oct 09 19:46:58 <JerushaonPhone>   Must be a good one
Oct 09 19:47:14 <DesertRose>   Going to get some tea
Oct 09 19:47:52 <Evie>   OK, off phone
Oct 09 19:48:01 <JerushaonPhone>   Misfit was supposed to be mibbit
Oct 09 19:48:09 <Evie>   My phone never rings unless it's a Sunday evening and I'm in the middle of chat.  :-D
Oct 09 19:48:16 <Evie>   Misfit works, Jerusha

Oct 09 19:49:31 <KK>   brb
Oct 09 19:49:45 <JerushaonPhone>   Spellcheck hates me
Oct 09 19:50:19 <Laurna>   My trouble is most of the time  I think spellcheck is correct when it is really the wrong word.
Oct 09 19:51:18 <JerushaonPhone>   Spellcheck does not understand how my mind works
Oct 09 19:51:32 <Evie>   And then Sister Disarray is born, Laurna.  ;-)
Oct 09 19:51:32 <Laurna>   lol
Oct 09 19:51:49 <JerushaonPhone>   Or doesn't 😀
Oct 09 19:52:05 <BalanceTheEnergies>   It just thinks it knows better
Oct 09 19:52:06 *   Laurna laughs and ducks away.
Oct 09 19:53:25 <Laurna>   It least I now know better than to duke away
Oct 09 19:53:41 <JerushaonPhone>   Lol
Oct 09 19:54:33 <DesertRose>   LOL
Oct 09 19:55:01 <Evie>   LOL
Oct 09 19:55:22 <Laurna>   Or there is always squirrels and squires.
Oct 09 19:55:25 <Evie>   Steal away with a duke, maybe, but not duke away
Oct 09 19:55:32 <Evie>   LOL, yes!

Oct 09 19:57:46 <The_Bee>   rehi jerusha
Oct 09 19:57:48 <DesertRose>   Rehi Jerusha
Oct 09 19:57:58 <KK>   I'm back.
Oct 09 19:58:00 <Jerusha>   Phone issue
Oct 09 19:58:01 <Evie>   Speaking of Dukes, I made Nigel a (knit mesh) chainmail hauberk while at the SCA event yesterday
Oct 09 19:58:04 <Laurna>   rehi KK
Oct 09 19:58:22 <KK>   How did it turn out?
Oct 09 19:58:41 <Evie>   Pretty well. I'm trying to see if I can get a photo to upload
Oct 09 19:59:43 <DesertRose>   The photo she showed me earlier made poor Prince Nigel look like (because he was wearing his coronet and an arming coif) he had on a gold-trimmed Easter bonnet!
Oct 09 20:00:23 <DesertRose>   Admittedly, I direly need new eyeglasses.  :-D
Oct 09 20:00:43 <Laurna>   :)
Oct 09 20:01:30 <The_Bee>   Nigel in an Easter bonnet? THAT I 'd like to see.
Oct 09 20:01:32 <Evie>   https://flic.kr/p/N3QKTv
Oct 09 20:01:51 <Evie>   I still need to make the helmet to go over the arming coif
Oct 09 20:01:59 <KK>   Arming coifs can, indeed, look pretty silly.  I'd say baby bonnets rather than Easter bonnets.  But of course, I didn't see the original. ;-)
Oct 09 20:02:03 <DesertRose>   Well, there you have it, Bee.
Oct 09 20:02:13 <Evie>   "By my pretty gold-trimmed bonnet, I will end you!"  -- Mini-Nigel  :-D
Oct 09 20:02:24 <The_Bee>   LOL!  He even looks embarrassed.
Oct 09 20:02:33 <Evie>   LOL!
Oct 09 20:02:35 <Jemler>   Princess Nigelina! :)
Oct 09 20:02:38 <DesertRose>   Well, yes, the arming coif by itself would look more like a baby bonnet, but with the coronet on top, it looked like an Easter bonnet with gold trim!
Oct 09 20:02:55 <KK>   Baby bonnet.  The coronet needs to be set more squarely on his head.
Oct 09 20:02:59 <Evie>   Not quite the look I was going for.  :-D
Oct 09 20:03:14 <KK>   The mail hauberk looks good, though.
Oct 09 20:03:30 <Evie>   Yes, I didn't realize how large it was until it was on.  It's meant for Kelson's head, which has rooted hair, so it's a fair bit bigger around.
Oct 09 20:03:40 <Laurna>   LOL at Baby bonnet.
Oct 09 20:03:46 <The_Bee>   The tie strings don't help.
Oct 09 20:04:13 <Evie>   Yes, I suspect he'll demand a do-over on that photo with the coif and coronet off
Oct 09 20:04:26 <Evie>   At least until I finish making his helmet
Oct 09 20:04:45 <Laurna>   I think the coonet without the white head covering would be better.  I like the mail socks.
Oct 09 20:04:53 <KK>   The coif should take up at least some of the space that is hair on Kelson.
Oct 09 20:05:01 <Evie>   They're actually thigh high chausses
Oct 09 20:05:31 <Evie>   Some of it, but Ken heads have a LOT of hair
Oct 09 20:06:10 <Evie>   Not to mention the heads themselves, even without rooted hair, are a little large than action figure heads to begin with
Oct 09 20:07:30 <Jemler>   can't you pop the heads off?
Oct 09 20:08:06 <Evie>   I do if I'm body switching
Oct 09 20:08:09 <The_Bee>   "OFF WITH HIS HEAD!"
Oct 09 20:08:09 <Laurna>   No more beheadings Jemler.  Please.
Oct 09 20:08:12 <Jerusha>   On a regular basis, Jemler 😀
Oct 09 20:08:28 <KK>   Nigel always looks so stern.
Oct 09 20:08:43 <Evie>   I haven't figured out how to get plastic to smile, KK.  ;-)
Oct 09 20:08:54 <BalanceTheEnergies>   He is the "Iron Duke" isn't he?
Oct 09 20:08:55 <Laurna>   lol
Oct 09 20:09:16 <Evie>   (Most action figures have that expression, since they are mostly sold for the military action figure or superheroes action figure market.)
Oct 09 20:09:17 <Jerusha>   Meraude
Oct 09 20:10:13 <Evie>   Meraude and careful photographic angles woulld do it, Jerusha.  :-D
Oct 09 20:10:58 <Evie>   That's his "My son nearly killed me. I am not amused" face
Oct 09 20:11:24 <Evie>   aka his "Somebody stuck a goofy Easter bonnet on my head!" face
Oct 09 20:11:40 <Laurna>   that is "You pages did what?" face
Oct 09 20:12:01 <KK>   I think it's his intense eyebrows.  I wonder whether they could be subtly lightened.
Oct 09 20:12:10 <Evie>   Here's a better look at those chausses, Laurna, as well as the original hauberk that they came with:  https://flic.kr/p/MVisET
Oct 09 20:12:34 <Laurna>   Like Dughal dropped a tray of pheasants. and he has to order it cleaned up.
Oct 09 20:12:38 <KK>   Oooh, I like both.
Oct 09 20:13:19 <Evie>   It's not the color of the eyebrows so much as the creases between them and the pronounced brow line, which I really can't do much about
Oct 09 20:14:04 <The_Bee>   It looks like he's wearing a mini-dress.
Oct 09 20:14:14 <KK>   Well, we know that he <is> stern.  Has to be, with the crew he's had to cat-herd.
Oct 09 20:14:37 <Evie>   I love that armor set--it's from a company that produces several well-researched historical action figures--but unfortunately I can't afford more than one set.  Even that set, I was only able to get because it was off the figure and selling at an unusually low price.  That's why I'm trying to make my own.
Oct 09 20:14:39 <DesertRose>   Well, tunics of a certain period would have been about the length of a mini-dress.
Oct 09 20:14:55 <Laurna>   Do reall chausses go around the feet or end at the ankle.   i can not imagine walking on chain mail beteween my toes
Oct 09 20:15:05 <Evie>   It's the angle, Bee.  That surcoat is actually mid-calf length
Oct 09 20:15:16 <Jemler>   the original steel-toed boots?
Oct 09 20:15:30 <Evie>   The bottom is covered with a leather sole, not mail
Oct 09 20:15:38 <Evie>   So only the top of the foot is covered with mail
Oct 09 20:16:47 <The_Bee>   I was thinking of the defined waistline, Evie.
Oct 09 20:16:48 <Evie>   And chausses were made in both styles, or at least fabric ones were, but I think metal ones were too, if you had some other sort of foot protection and didn't need the mail extending over the foot
Oct 09 20:17:13 <Evie>   On the red surcoat, Bee?
Oct 09 20:17:22 <The_Bee>   Yup
Oct 09 20:18:07 <Evie>   I think that's a style that normally has metal plates attached to the inside, or between the outer layer and the lining, and the side pieces are meant to buckle in front or back (depending on the style and if the wearer has someone to squire for them or not)
Oct 09 20:18:25 <Evie>   Of course this 1:6 one doesn't have actual metal plates inside of it
Oct 09 20:18:55 <The_Bee>   not metal next to the skin, I hope.
Oct 09 20:19:05 <Laurna>   Heavy Metal Man! :P
Oct 09 20:19:13 <Evie>   Just like the white gambeson worn under those layers has stitching to make it look quilted, but it's actually not.
Oct 09 20:19:23 <DesertRose>   I...AM...IRON...MAN!
Oct 09 20:19:27 <Evie>   Since all of those things would add too much bulk at this scale
Oct 09 20:19:29 <Laurna>   lol
Oct 09 20:19:45 <Evie>   No, there's a padded gambeson that is worn next to the skin
Oct 09 20:19:50 <KK>   And tinfoil, while perhaps in scale, would not hold up.
Oct 09 20:19:52 *   DesertRose channels Ozzy Osbourne.
Oct 09 20:20:06 <Evie>   No, you'd need something a heavier gauge than that
Oct 09 20:20:19 <Laurna>   Tin 'foil' Man!
Oct 09 20:20:32 <Evie>   I've seen some nice rigid scale armor done with thin craft foam that is stiffened with glue, which I am considering trying
Oct 09 20:20:48 <KK>   The old adage, Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex, comes to mind.
Oct 09 20:20:56 <Evie>   LOL!
Oct 09 20:21:04 <Laurna>   Oh dear  lol
Oct 09 20:21:45 <Evie>   Actually, Nigel's head sculpt is a likeness of Henry Cavill, who played Superman in the "Man of Steel" and "Batman vs Superman" movies, among other roles
Oct 09 20:21:51 <KK>   Whoop, look at the time.  I need to throw together something for supper before the debate starts at 9 PM.
Oct 09 20:21:57 <Jerusha>   Alas, I must go. Night everyone!
Oct 09 20:22:06 <Evie>   Goodnight!
Oct 09 20:22:07 <KK>   Nighters, Jerusha.
Oct 09 20:22:12 <DesertRose>   Okay, KK.  See you next week.  Have a good week, and thanks for coming to see us!
Oct 09 20:22:14 <Laurna>   Good Night KK
Oct 09 20:22:14 <DesertRose>   Night, Jerusha
Oct 09 20:22:18 *   Jerusha has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Oct 09 20:22:18 <Laurna>   Night Jerusha
Oct 09 20:22:27 <Jemler>   nite kk
Oct 09 20:22:29 <Evie>   Henry Cavill was also in The Tudors. I need to dress him in Elizabethan.  ;-)
Oct 09 20:22:34 <The_Bee>   I need supper too.  Enjoy the fireworks, everyone
Oct 09 20:22:34 *   KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
Oct 09 20:22:49 <BalanceTheEnergies>   Good night KK
Oct 09 20:22:50 <Laurna>   That could be fun Evie  pumpkin pants
Oct 09 20:22:52 <KK>   It's going to be....interesting.
Oct 09 20:22:54 <The_Bee>   bye KK
Oct 09 20:22:59 <DesertRose>   I do not EVEN want to think about sewing Elizabethan in 1:1 scale, never mind 1:6.
Oct 09 20:23:03 <Evie>   He really would frown at me if I give him a codpiece.  LOL!
Oct 09 20:23:14 <Laurna>   lol
Oct 09 20:23:19 <Jemler>   early day tomorrow, plus npo tonite. i'd better go, too.
Oct 09 20:23:26 <DesertRose>   Night, Jemler
Oct 09 20:23:27 <KK>   Good night, all.
Oct 09 20:23:35 <Laurna>   Take care Jemler
Oct 09 20:23:35 <The_Bee>   bye jemler

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
