Cosplay

I've been taking some easy, Eve days and I am glad that I have. CSMX got the CCP/CSM channel sorted out the other day and there has been a lot of chatter. I've been very caught up and distracted.

In the meantime!

We were given our prizes from the cosplay contest at Fanfest today. I now have a bunch of clothing on Sugar including a maroon set of tshirts that don't appear on the market. I noticed that woman's clothing and men's clothing sell for different prices. The woman's clothing tends to be more expensive. I find that amusing.

I enjoyed making my jacket and my little outfit. I'd like to do so again if I go to Fanfest next year. I've also Eve Vegas to think of. That is if there is a cosplay portion. It'd be fun if there was. It'd fit in in Vegas. I was so nervous walking through Reykjavik in my Minmatar jacket with my heavy makeup on and my braids. In Vegas, I'd not stand out. Not when a black Batman rides by on a bicycle and Chewbacca is talking to Bumblebee under the neon sign for a casino.

I need a sewing machine. I am not the greatest seamstress but I can put basics together. I'd love to learn embroidery as well but that may be stretching things a bit. I have to think about it.

  1. So Eve clothing for women is more expensive than men? So art really does imitate life after all.

    1. Well on the open market at least. I didn't check the NEX store. I just found it interesting the price difference was often like 100 mil between the woman's pants and the mens.

    2. It probably has something to do with men being men, so there is higher demand on women's clothing because of all those men playing with their dolls eh I mean "action figures".

      (CCP apparently thinks the same, the AURUM-prices for women's attire in the NEX store are often higher than for their male counterparts.)

  2. I'm currently green with jealousy.

  3. You know what I want and do not for the life of me understand why CCP does not offer?

    The clothes we wear in game for sale IRL. The T-shirts our toons wear... shirts and uniforms... the coats and jackets... offer them in nylon, pleather and in actual leather and I bet they'd sell... hell I'd buy the jacket Tur wears in a heartbeat and I'd pay for real leather too.

    1. Agreed. We've been pushing for that. Musterbrand decided that t-shirts should cost sixty dollars. I have no idea what was up with them. They have a clearance sale atm so hopefully their contract with CCP is ending and we can get some good stuff. Simpler stuff.

  4. That's really cool. Is there a list of the in-game clothing prizes handed out anywhere?

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…
