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?

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…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…
