:-) Just put my attempt together for Thanksgiving. I skipped the step with the blood sacrifice, though, so I still hope it turns out.

Woot! I just tried this recipe this morning and they came out fabulous. Yum! I've always been to scared to try crepes in the past, but that was so simple I'm going to add it to my regular repertoire.

Thanks, fiber :-) I should add a photo of the printed cards, they came out super sweet. I want to make more decks now with other themes.

Woot! Thanks for the kind words. I like the bag, especially this 2.0 version that has pockets. The thing I like most is that it holds a lot of stuff.

Last year I made a deck of custom playing cards. These are related to "transformational playing cards" that were popular in the 19th century and were different than regular cards because the pips were incorporated into some kind of design. Mine were designed to be an homage to science fiction - Clubs = retrto sci-fi, Diamonds = slick high-tech sci-fi, Hearts = steampunk, Clubs = cyberpunk.

I'm not a traditional artist, but I was able to build the elements of the cards in Second Life (a virtual community). This involved a lot of work building each of the small elements used in the cards (the little robots, the suit "pips", etc.), styling the avatars to fit the look and feel of each suit, making the textures for the frames and backdrops, etc. It took about 2 months to build and design and about 2 months to do all of the screen capture snapshots, then an additional month or so for the Photoshop work.

For example: the Ace of Shovels

Once everything was done I had the deck printed on Moo cards and they came out wonderfully! Since they are Moo cards and on coated card-stock they are even playable.

My new bag. I had originally thrown it together (with a different star) for a Ramona (from Scott Pilgrim) costume for a comic con. I remade it last week using my own star and a new lining with pockets. It's pleather on the outside.

^^ I added a little Watchman button to hide the snap.
