1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!
Any graphics work that I did, either cropping, sizing, or creation, I did using Canvas X (or earlier) on a Mac.
|I created this icon using Google mapping to make the maps. Last summer, we went on a road trip together for our family vacation. We drove to Cedar Point, Niagara Falls, Toronto, Montreal, Dartmouth and Cornell before coming home again. I wrote about our adventures here, here, and here.|
|I created this icon from a photograph taken at our superhero-themed Halloween Party. This was the year that Mystery Men was a summer movie, so we had some pretty creative superheroes. If I recall correctly, the winners included Cinder, who was PVC girl, and LaDonna_Rena, who created her costume using office supplies. I don't remember her superhero name, but I do remember her exquisite paperclip headdress.
For my costume, I used fabric paint to color an off-the-rack white corset by Frederick's. My visor was a tie-dyed fabric visor from Michael's, and I *think* the cape was from an earlier batgirl costume, although I may have that order reversed. I made a "Wonder Bitch" logo by adding a rainbow motif to the WB logo, and used that on my cape, and on the tag for my collar. I used tiedye to color the wrist cuffs, which included single rhinestones as "targets" for bullet repelling. I found Lycra briefs the right size to wear outside my opaque, "skin" colored (shiny) tights, for that authentic underwear-on-the-outside touch. In keeping with my costume name, I also had a tail. More lab than retriever, definitely not pit. My magic lasso doubled as a leash.
I don't remember if I already had my knee-high, xxx-calf-size, purple leather boots at the time, but when I've reused the costume since then, that's how I've completed the ensemble. These days, I tend to leave out the tail and leash, and use the moniker "Wonder Babe" for the outfit.
|I made this icon from an image I found using Google Images. I used it to write about Camel, shortly after the break up, until I lost the need to write about him. The entries aren't tagged, and there're probably bitter rants, so I'm not looking them up to link here. However, to explain why I call him Camel, I'll point you to my cobwebsite about Raccoon Day.|
|The R is for Rice University, where my parents, Matt and I all attended, and where Critter is matriculating in the fall. I colored my raccoon cartoon in the school colors to nestle into the R.|
|I'm not happy with this icon, since it's too hard to read the message, but I've never gotten around to re-creating it. I got the error message "This Icon has been distracted by a shiny object. It may be away awhile." from an icon that Cinder found somewhere, but I decided I wanted it to have a Mac error window, rather than the Windows style on the icon she found.|
