Today is Involvement Fest! I forgot that we had flyer designs until just now. Woops.
If you’ve ever had an interest in fencing (or used to play a lot of Soul Calibur and liked using Raphael like me), feel free to stop by our table! I’ll be there all day! Come over and we can talk about weapons and comics and music of you want.
You are guaranteed a nice ass if you join. Seriously. Fencers tend to have great asses.
And if you miss us or something, feel free to shoot me an ask! Anons are always on and if you really want to try it out, I can add you to the mailing list.
First practice for new members is next Tuesday, September 10!
My mom offered to get me a new one. Right now I have Absolute’s standard nylon jacket and I’ve had it for three years. If I get one, I’d be getting the Phoenix one.
I fence mostly for my school but I’ve joined a club for the summer. And since I definitely plan on continuing after college, I figured it would be a good investment. Also, our former saber coach said it’s lighter and breathes better. Which is specifically enticing because I get very hot, very fast. Especially with the chest plate underneath.
My coach told me to spring for the Leon Paul since he has the one I want to get. So I guess I’m getting the LP.
Actually had the best training session in a while! There’s this very cocky boy who thinks because I’m a girl I’m shit, when in actual fact I’m just as good as him, the only reason I mostly lose against him is because I lack in confidence. tonight however was different. I had a lesson of my coach which went surprisingly well, I then went to fence him I had just overheard him bitch about girl fencers which annoyed me which made me more determined to win! I went out and completely smashed him like 15-6. that soon shut him up and has put me in the best mood ever! now I need to do that at competitions.
YAY! Like I said, homegirl don’t need to take that shit.
Get a thimble. It’s like two bucks.
I went to the fabric store twice today and forgot to get one and tonight I was trying to make a new strap for the back of my mask and replace the velcro at the top of my jacket. And I still have to sew on two patches eventually. That means sewing through two layers of elastic and a layer of velcro for the mask and like four layers of thick nylon and velcro for the jacket. So for the love of God, get a thimble.
I decided to scrap everything and just machine sew everything but the patches and read Attack on Titan instead.
