Gotham: Last day of vacation  
It's the last day of vacation for Alfred, because on Monday July 23 the filming of "Gotham" season 5 is starting! We already got a picture of the first table read yesterday.

I used real sand here! The shirts hanging on the line are from a greeting card that I bought in the UK many years ago, thinking one day I might need them!
I made the flower chain and also the book, it's a real Gotham novel by Jason Starr. His second already.




The light box is from a keyring but I found that it is difficult to photograph. When switched off it's too dark, when switched on too bright. So I had to set the photo camera to very dark to be able to see the letters, and then photoshop it into the vacation picture.

That flower chain remains amazing.

Are the greeting card shirts actually clipped to the line or attached to the background? Great look either way :D

Thank you!

They came with the line on the card! On the card, they were attached to some stickers which I removed, but in my picture they are hanging loose. I just taped the other end of the line to my background which you can't see as I cut it off ;)

Alfred surely leads stressful life, so he needs a break from time to time. And there's nothing better for a holiday than beach and sun!*

*Of sourse, as long as you like beach and sun :)

Yes, with all the getting kidnapped and fighting and beaten and killed occassionally Alfred surely did use a vacation!

Personally I like a bit of beach and sun, but not for two weeks straight. That would be boring. I prefer exploring cities. And when on the beach, I am not lying on my lazy ass, I build sand castles and collect shells and nice stones for future craft projects!

Me too! One day at the beach, with a book and tons of sun cream, why not. More? Boring!

(I'm looking at the dates of our comments and I think this conversation can be an illustration of the words "turtle's pace" in a dictionary :D)

This is great, and looks so fun! :D

Thank you! Even busy butlers need a vacation once in a while.
I just had a week myself, just puttering around home, doing stuff that never gets done, very relaxing.

This is really cute and clever! That book is really impressive! Have you ever thought about opening up an eBay store and selling some of the stuff you can make? I know some fans who would pay quite a bit for these kind of things! (I’ve bought some of them as gifts! LOL)

Thank you! I already made the first Gotham novel last year, here it is Alfred sitting in a rocking chair enjoying reading: https://dieastra.livejournal.com/248749.html
(and it explains how exactly I made it)

Do you mean ebay or etsy store?

I did make a few of those scimitars for the Dark Archer for some of my friends: https://dieastra.livejournal.com/128841.html

But I don't know, I am always afraid - since I make specific things seen in the shows - that they might be copyrighted? I don't want to get into trouble with making money with it. Plus, and this might sound odd, but I rather invent a new thing, and figure out how to do it, than making the same thing again and again? I'm not a factory. Sounds boring? If I think I'd have to do that biobed again... I'm glad I'm finished ;)

And for other stuff like general books there are already shops out there. Sometimes I am lazy and if someone else can do it better then I happily buy it.

Holy crap the detail! Amazing as always :) That book detail is jaw dropping. So clever!

Thank you!

Oh, I just scanned the real book cover (both sides) and printed it in small, nothing special there!
