DIY Zombie Nesting Dolls. I posted these nesting dolls about 3 years ago ($100 from Etsy Store PsandQx that is now gone). I found these blank nesting dolls from Golden Cockerel here.  You can get huge expensive sets or cheap small ones - just google “Russian Nesting Dolls”.  Paint, decoupage or Sharpie your zombies (make sure sharpies don’t bleed by testing them on the bottom).

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.

"The Grifs are probably white."

"I would stop watching if Donut and Doc were together."

"Tucker doesn’t sound black! I don’t think its canon…."

"You cant headcanon Felix as Asian without proof from canon!"

You would think that Andrew Jackson was giving you his undivided attention, and then you would glance over and notice that he had devoted the last several minutes to making a laborious sketch of an alligator.

“Mr. President!” you would gasp, indignantly.

“I have a bullet lodged inside my body,” he would say. “From killing a man in a duel. A better man than you.” He would resume drawing the alligator.

I had a tea party with Ophelia. She wanted to tip over the sugar jar. The bow is nice.

having a chilean rose hair at a tea party should be standard, i love the bow!

Cutting Glass

panovanator:

This is how glass is hand-cut! Following all my stained glass posts there was some confusion as to why certain shapes had to be separated into two pieces of glass and how do you even cut a piece of glass to the shape desired. So here are some photos and explanations, hope this helps! 

Tools you need:

Cutter (green), snappers (black), special pliers (blue), glue stick!

First of all, the pattern you have chosen needs to be labeled and cut out with special three-bladed scissors: image

Then, pick a piece and glue it onto the glass. The cut will always have to go from one edge of the glass to the other (can’t stop a crack in the middle of the glass sheet!) so a bit of strategy is required as to not waste too much material. Pick an edge to cut first (again, strategize: cut the side that is closest to the edge first, that way if the cut fails you can always just shimmy up the paper a bit and re-cut). The cutter is basically a small serrated wheel (like a pizza cutter) that introduces flaws to the glass along a line. On the photo below you can see the white line created by the cutter:

Then, you can either use the snappers is the cut is more or less straight or the pliers if the cut is too curved. Or a combination of both (use snappers to prime the crack at the edges and use pliers to finish propagating the crack), or just how you feel like it - it’s kind of a skill to acquire.

So now it becomes apparent that certain shapes cannot be cut this way - inward angles for example and inward curves that are too steep. If you have a rather small radius of curvature you can iteratively cut into the curve (see below) to release the friction “pressure” of the sides (it’s… difficult to explain…)

Welp, that’s it for cutting. The edges are kind of messy at this point so next step is grinding!
