This afternoon [livejournal.com profile] loopymushroom and I took photos of our kit in her back garden and back room - they're on Flickr here.

Kit search for Empire took me three trips to charity shops: one with [livejournal.com profile] freddiefraggles to Burleigh Street, one with [livejournal.com profile] loopymushroom to Burleigh Street, and one on my own that went along Burleigh Street and all the way up and down Mill Road. (There are so many charity shops in Cambridge!)

Other things are a dress that's been in my wardrobe for years (wore it as a teenager), leggings from Sainsbury's, and an excellent embroidered abaya/jilbab that I bought on eBay.

Photos under the cut, and an awful lot of notes about costume. )

From one of the comments on the latest post on Fred Clark's blog Slacktivist:

The essence of hope that Fred always advocates is all about the seemingly endless Holy Saturday - awash in doubt and implacable, saturated evil - and the conviction that Sunday - victory and harmony and paradise, however you might envision it - will exist, already does exist in the future. It occurs to me that the way to engage that conviction may be to start things and push forward things that you know you're never going to see the conclusion of, because limiting yourself only to things that can be finished in the time you have means never touching some of the biggest and most important work.

...is brought to you by a classified ad in this week's Big Issue. It is entitled "The Christian 666 Evolutionary Mandate" and gets almost to "how on earth did you come to that conclusion?", pausing for quite a long time at "...the English language does not quite work like that".

Here's the text of the advert - it's a little long. )
There is then a mention of how to find the author's book on eBay, and a link to his website Book of Soul, the front page of which has a slightly expanded explanation of the advert.

I actually quite like this one, really, because if you file off some of the names it's credible IC heresy for various game settings. It's possibly even slighty *less* heretical and crackpot for Maelstrom than for real life.
