I know the black T shirt trend gets a lot of guff, but as far as I am concerned black T shirts are great. Not only does it mean I don’t have to think about matching the color, but a black T shirt, especially with things printed on it, also means I don’t have to wear additional restrictive underclothing mandated by societal double-standards despite the fact that there is absolutely no physical benefit for me as an individual.
That being said, my favorite individual piece is probably the Laputa seal necklace that I “made” (i.e., got the pendant part printed on Shapeways and only actually made the cord part, using a fingercrochet-esque technique whose name I don’t know). It’s fun to have had a more direct hand in causing a physical object to exist in its desired configuration, so maybe I will say that Shapeways – as an enabler of this – is a favorite? Although I don’t own any 3D modeling software, nor have any such experience – it’s basically all been MS Paint + fiddling with their pendant creator wizard.
(I’m hoping to be able to make the Reader’s cloak from Pyre, but I hand-sew at a glacial pace and haven’t yet figured out how to use the sewing machine my father left me.)
It totally counts as far as I am concerned!
