i am going to a bbq/party tonight at a friends house, and it was requested i bake something. so i made a chocolate cake with chocolate pudding filling and chocolate icing. you know, so that anyone who drinks too much only needs to eat a little of this cake to throw up. just trying to help.
anyway, tried to decorate it, but had a little problem on the sides. it kinda MELTED. i tried to make it look like fireworks (since we can't have any where i live) but eventually gave up and just squirted frosting randomly.
anyway, here is the top, with my terrible sense of humor. (my gramma was horrified, so by my rules, that means it is an awesome cake, lol)
have a great 4th of July, don't drink too much or catch anything on fire, and hope your pets are okay.
we went on a mission last night at midnight to find boxes and build a fort. after half an hour of searching behind grocery stores and shopping centers, we finally found some in the hospital dumpster. (no, i do not promote dumpster diving at the hospital, it's generally not a GREAT idea, but we needed boxes) we then decided that a local park needed some help. it is nice and all, but just not up to our standards of excellence. so, from the hours of 1-3 am we turned the ocean/boat themed kids playground into a fort with only cardboard boxes and saran wrap. that's right, no tape, everything is tied together with saran wrap. we called it Hobopolis, and it was a city of peace, progress, and freedom. the people were happy and the land prospered. ok, actually, it looked terrible and we gave up halfway through to wrap ourselves in saran wrap and go swing. but still, i am proud of our work.
the whole thing
we even had an escape pod.
see, tied with saran wrap. that was a pain. we cut holes in the cardboard with keys and used the saran as rope.
we also deconstructed and cleaned up out whole mess so that we wouldn't get in trouble, and so kids couldn't hurt themselves on it. then we went and got donuts. Jesse decided to keep his saran shoes on for this:
we had fun. and got a pretty good work out tying and cutting and moving.
PRESENTING DOLORES JANE UMBRIDGE FORM THE HARRY POTTER BOOK SERIES:
she is a REALLY late holiday 2007 present for my friend Jesse. She is his least favorite character, and i figured now he can beat her up whenever he wants. she is the second in my series of harry potter stuffies for friends. however, unlike the ron doll i made, she has no genitalia. she doesn't deserve any cause she's evil. NOTE: the harry potter doll featured in some of these pics was made for me by a friend, and is the inspiration for the other dolls i made. he's AWESOME.
she even has Slytherin's Locket!
harry doesn't like her much
they battle, harry wins <3
he notices the locket, that's not hers!
and then she dies. or faceplants ungracefully, and is very, very embarrassed, whichever is meaner.
ok so it's not OFFICIALLY FINISHED. basically it is too small still and needs to be shaped more towards the front, but i am way too excited about it not to post it.
this is a test under-bust corset made from duct tape, cut up plastic brownie container for boning, and some saran wrap. my eventual goal is to make myself a white one for comic con for my fetish nurse outfit. but before i wasted $15 worth of white duct tape i figured i should make a practice one out of the cheap silver kind. this is what i have after taping and cutting and taping and shaping and taping and cutting and taping. it still needs more cutting and shaping and taping too. WHOO for not actually measuring or planning anything!
too small and laced with two shoelaces tied together :p i couldn't find anything else at the moment.
looks neat from the back though.
ZOMG BRA (pretend its a bathing suit top) sorry if it offends.
i turned 20 on March 31 (YAY) and on the 29th had a party to celebrate the occasion. it was a bbq at the beach, and not surprisingly i did all the cooking. it's ok though cause i like cooking and people brought a bunch of other food too, so basically all i really did was make the cake beforehand and cook up the burgers, hot dogs, and can of spam once we got there.
ANYWAY, i wanted a kitty litter cake for my 20th birthday. i REALLY wanted it. so i took it upon myself to make one, which was really good because the friend who was SUPPOSED to get me a cake got sick and couldn't. so here it is in all it's sick, sick glory.
i actually added powdered sugar to the nilla wafer mix, which made it look awesome, but made it a little dry on top. though the cakes turned out really good and really moist...mmm, cake.
BLOODY POOPS. sick kitty, aws.
i actually couldn't find a cheap enough cat litter box, so i just got this big pan and figured i could cook the cake right in it. unfortunately it was too big for my oven. oops. so i just threw the parchment paper in like that to make it look like a box liner. eh, i still liked how it came out.
My friend Mike Burns (perhaps you have heard of him, he is getting famous...) has been playing around Los Angeles lately and was most recently in the Emergenza music festival, and we went to go vote and support him.
i also found some iron-on transfer paper in a drawer and decided that i needed to make this shirt for him and the festival. the problem? thew only blank shirt i could find was an x-tra large yellow child's shirt. i had to cut off the neck because it was choking me and then when i ironed the words on these big ugly stains appeared. i assume they were grease or something that i didn't notice until the iron burned it out or whatever. anyway, in the end i did not wear this shirt and it is lurking in the back of my friend's car, because we forgot to show it to Mike. oops. oh well, i plan to make another one on a better shirt, without the ugly stains.
one of my favorite songs of his is called "where the heart is" and i believe it's about home as in 'home is where the heart is', but the line is just "i finally found where the heart is" and i automatically think he is talking about anatomy...
so yeah. this was the first time i had used iron on transfer paper. it was fun, but scary. i was so nervous that i was going to burn it or not "cook" it enough...
ok, so they look nothing like radishes, but a lot like deformed apples. i like them. i think i will wear them tomorrow for valentine's day. "i love magic"
i have terrible acne today, so i made this picture "better" by giving myself big ol' Luna eyes, and some Ravenclaw house colored decorations to cover up the horrible red splotches and dark circles around my eyes...
i sewed two pieces of felt together, stuffed, and added a green leaf. they are on some hanging earring parts from broken earrings, attached with a string. i have never made jewelry before, apart from beading on elastic and then tying it off to make bracelets, so forgive me.
though i don't have a baby to make things for, so i made myself a patch for my bag instead:
i am new tot he whole needlework thing, so it's on a t-shirt fabric scrap, and all sort of made up as i went along. the yellowish square thing was supposed to be that weathered notice on the door of the tardis, but it ended up just looking like...idk, i pooed on it or soemthing. oh well, learning is good. i want to make at least one more with a different quote on it. i am thinking hte next one should say "it's bigger on the inside".
i was bored on a rainy day and started this little project. i don't know what it is. i don't know much about needlework, i just wanted to make this little Kurt Halsey owl with thread and a needle. also, i couldn't decide which pic was less blurry, or lighter, so i put them both.
i am sorry, Kurt Halsey for using your work without your permission, i just love this little owl so much. i am not using it to sell or anything, so i hope i am not infringing on copyright. i just redrew this on a piece of fabric with a pencil and went over it in thread. sorry.
