1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Steampunky Custom Munny on: July 04, 2013 09:36:19 AM
Hi!

I am in a Munny swap on another site and made this whackadoo cycloptic steampunky robotty munny for my partner:



A Munny is a blank vinyl doll that you can customize with paint, markers, etc. (there are SO MANY cool ones if you search for munny on google images).  I made this one with polymer clay, quartz crystals, a glass eye that I made using a glass cabochon and a printable eye collage sheet, copper wire, screws, and acrylic paint.

Thanks for lookin! Cheesy

Omg these freakin' things.



I have made enough of these things to kill someone.  If you unraveled them and force-fed someone the yarn using a chopstick and a funnel, that is.  Not that I've put any thought into this or anything!

I've made them plain-ish:



I've made them leaking brains:



I've made them extra bloody and eyeball-dangly:



and I've made them dressed like Cthulhu.



I don't want to make them ever again.  Ever. 

.... I've said that before.


Thanks for lookin!

I have been making what I've termed "sugar skull pals" for a while now out of felt, mostly bunnies, even some with two heads.  The other day I was inspired to make one out of muslin with a sculpted eyeball cameo on his belly.  He's hand-sewn, painted with acrylics, beaded, and then thoroughly grimified.





He makes me sort of ridiculously happy.

Thanks for lookin!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Literate Red Monster on: March 07, 2012 11:26:34 AM
 

Yay another monster!  Same as before, face was hand-drawn/painted and then he was hand- and machine-sewn together out of fake fur, muslin, broadcloth and felt.

Turn Ons:   Shakespeare, stories about Armageddon, words with five syllables, memebase.com.

Turn Offs:  Iambic Pentameter, pickle breath, snails, things that like to chew on monsters.

Vital Statistics:  16 inches long, 12 inches wide at the horns, 19 inch arm-span

Thanks for looking! <3
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Loveydovey Monster on: February 23, 2012 05:05:58 PM
This is my first post in this forum!  *waves*  Since I just ordered 75 billion pounds of fake fur, I'm sure it won't be the last though!

This is my loveydovey monster:



I drew/painted his face with Prismacolor pencils and a bit of white acrylic on muslin then sealed it... The body/arms/feet are faux fur, horns and heart are felt, legs are stripey canvas.

Here's a pensive daydreaming pose:



Teehee!
I've been dreaming about these monsters for a year, so I'm crazy excited about him.

Thanks for looking!

I can't even remember the last embroidery project I finished, but finding this tiny tea set at the dollar store inspired me to make Alice-themed embroidery panels and a display for them:



and the display:

 

I am seriously the worst kind of lurky-lurker in this forum, but you all have inspired me like crazy and have reinforced my love of hand-stitching!

I made this at the beginning of June for the CHA show and posted it on the Misc. forum, but here's my contest entry!

Meet my Cyber Angel (Miraculous Vision):



She's broken down into computer hardware, a dowel, a K'Nex gear, a pile of copper wire, some Fixit Sculpt, glue, water, paper towels, tinfoil, acrylic and watercolor paints, and some random book phrases. 

Her body started as paper mache over a foil and wire framework and then had horns and spikes added with Fixit Sculpt (AWESOME but stinky stuff!).  I sliced and diced computer boards/chips/peripherals then wired and soldered them together for the wings and made barbed wire out of 24-gauge copper wire (that was KILLER on the thumbs). 



I picked a random excerpt out of a book of erotic horror: "miraculous vision of hope".  Then I painted everything black and added stripes on her stick out of more random lines of text.  Her face is watercolor on watercolor paper and is stuck on (I usually do faces with fabric that has a couple coats of absorbent ground gesso, and they're really flexible and awesome, but using watercolor paper instead was pretty awful)

I think that's everything!  I wish I would have taken progress pictures!

Here are back and side views:

 

PHEW!  Thanks for looking! Cheesy
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Acupuncture gone wrong upcycled pincushion on: June 13, 2011 01:27:30 PM
I have been in desperate need of a pincushion for probably 10 years.  I've asked for them in swaps and have gotten a couple of tiny ones, but I have a crapload of pins!  I had one of those magnetic things that are awesome in theory but horrific when you reach in blindly to grab a pin and end up with 17 digging into your hangnails, cuticles, and nail beds.



I've had this fabric with all of these weird faces kicking around for a year, but it was a small piece and I was at a loss.  Finally when I decided to do this project, I found this fabric in my stash and thought, "OMG look at all those eyeballs for my pins!  WHEE!!!"

So being the junior psychopath that I am, I had to fill the eyes first:



And here's a view of the whole enchilada (prior to pins):



The base is a candlestick from a thrift store that was gessoed and then painted black.  The top is paper mache.  I did it over a small balloon and then cut the top off.  The stars and stripes (how patriotic sounding) were cut out of old books and then glued down with gel medium.  There is a jump ring in one of the points with an earring clasp that holds safety pins.

In transferring over my pins from the magnetic trap of doom, I found 7 needles! Score!

Thanks for looking!

I can't believe this is the first time I'm posting in this forum as my work is usually a huge conglomeration of everything including but not limited to the kitchen sink! Wink

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Eye Heart Potholders with T-shirt yarn! on: May 27, 2011 07:23:51 AM


I have this issue with my hands and hot things.  They like each other a lot.  I probably burn myself on average of five times a week, so I figured it was time to fight back.  I made a crapload (I believe that is a metric measurement) of t-shirt yarn and made these potholders.  Take that, hot stuff!

The heart was actually trickier than I thought it would be getting it to actually look like an anatomic heart, but it worked out in the end.  PHEW.  The pattern (and the t-shirt yarn tutorial) are available on wonderstrange!  (scroll down for the pdf download of the pattern)

Thanks for checkin' out my parts! Wink
