What did Lynne get for the New Years?
« on: January 04, 2008, 01:50:42 pm »
Besides a headache from too many martinis...

Let's play 20 (or however many) questions!

It's bigger than a postage stamp and smaller than a puppy!


Milli has inside info so she's ineligible for the prize...

If no one gets it right away, I'll answer and send a goodie in a week.

Is it made of a natural fiber, ie, cotton or wool?

No, Shasta, it did not come directly from the movie, though inspired by both short story and film.

Shasta - not a model truck...sorry.

Amanda and Paul - you are starting to make me squirm!!

It is not jewelry, but it is an adornment.  And it is based on a drawing, hence Milli's involvement.

Oh, I should have guessed it (I just found this thread, but didn't get it before you revealed it) because I remember you saying at the BBQ that you were GOING to get one. How exciting! I believe this is a Brokie first, isn't it?

LOL Paul!

I have heard of a couple of DC folks having different things, but Chuck wasn't one mentioned...hopefully mine's original even if it's not the first. There's a deliberate flaw to weed out real Brokies from the rest ;-)

I contemplated a can of BetterMost beans on my a$$ but thought again :-)

Well, we could guess --- some stuff about the tattoo artist.

Or, we could guess another one of your Christmas gifts.

We could guess who/what you and RouxB are seeing on the train!

I don't know.  :P  ::)

That's a cool quotation to get Lynne.  I'm still curious about the "deliberate flaw" aspect of the tattoo.  What do you mean by that?  ???

"Let be, let be." appears to be the correct way to write this quotation (double checking with Close Range and all).

And Amanda Brokie Extraordinaire finds the flaw!  :D

The artist wrote it in script on two lines as follows:

Let be...
Let be...


Clearly a departure from short story capitalization and punctuation...

I think you're right, Paul - I can hear him doing just that!

Here's the finished product, tho there is still some irritation and redness I'm told will heal in the next 10 days or so.  Edit:  It's not as icky as it looks close-up...like I said the redness will fade.

Hi Lynne,

I think that looks great!  I love the way the script looks.  And, from what I can see, even the hat bands on the cowboy hats look right... especially the hat band on Ennis's hat (I can't really see the one on the black hat too well).

You're a brave woman!  I know I'd be too scared to get a tattoo.

Again, this one looks great!
:)

Thanks, Amanda!  Milli did the hats from one of the dozy embrace scenes - it was important to me that they overlap.  And I think the artist reproduced them really well in terms of the bands and the shadows and shading..kinda hard to tell with raw skin peeking thru at the moment.

I'm very pleased with it and I swear it only stung a little - I am a big baby about pain, so I wouldn't lie...Sid did a good job of laughing and keeping me preoccupied.  ;)

Lynne, it looks great! I love the overlapping hats and the rope is very natural and flowing. It's a beautiful design.  :)

Thanks, Fabienne!  Design credit goes to Milli and the tattoo artist...he kept the stencil, if you want me to send it to you.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

It's beautiful Lynne. Love the Dozy Embrace positioning of the hats, and the script, but the best is the rope around the hats, holding them together.

Big compliments to Milli for designing it! You're truly an artist (as if we needed any more proof  ;)).

I'm very pleased with it and I swear it only stung a little - I am a big baby about pain, so I wouldn't lie...Sid did a good job of laughing and keeping me preoccupied.  ;)


Hm - hm - hm  It sure looks very hurtful, even a few days after the procedure.

Looks great, Lynne and Milli!

Lynne, if you're ever so inclined, I'd love to see a picture of it "in context" -- that is, where you can see your whole leg. Hope this request doesn't sound too weird, but that would give a better idea of scale and positioning, etc.

I love your new Tattoo Lynne.  Very well done.  The art work is exceptional as only Milli can do..   Very cool

I too would like to see a larger pic, not so close up.  :)   

I have a tat on my inner calf.  Very large though, and most of the time I love her..She's my guiding light fairy.  Somehow i dont think all folks like her so much, but i do get compliments on it. 

The most embaressing one was from my doctor during my yearly exam.  Actually it pissed me off too.  After all I wasnt there to show off my tat....hehehehe
