1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Rubbery chess set on: May 30, 2006 08:51:28 AM
Right, I've searched and can't find anything =(

Anyway, on to the point, I'm after making a chess set. See, I don't want it to be rigid. I want solid pieces, but with a jello like feel, I've looked at all these latex things, but it seems to be for hollow things or making moulds. I was thinking maybe I could use gelatine, but a: it's all nasty animalness and I wouldn't appreciate working with it and b: it may well rot.

What I was wanting to know, is can anyone point me in the direction of something that'll work? Maybe doing a latex outside bit with that filling stuff they put in stress toys?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Gingham boobtube dress to hott halter...*MODIFIED* Tute link added! on: March 09, 2006 07:28:57 PM
To start with, let me explain why I went at a perfectly good dress with scissors... I don't wear dresses =P  *but* when I saw this dress, I had to have it. I figured I'm sure I could do something with it! So... the original dress
and the top portion on (no one ever sees my legs!)

Not the most flattering of things on me. It had to be altered, I spent weeks wondering what to do with it and then it dawned on me, if I take the bottom skirt type bit and sew it on the top, I can make a halter. A few snips later and I had this
And on...

I'm so glad summer's coming!


Thanks so much for your loverly comments!

I posted a tutorial in my LJ, so follow the link to it =) I hope it's all clear and stuff, it's my first tute =/

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 50's dilemma on: August 01, 2004 09:47:15 AM
Well, I'm brand spanking new *waves heallo*

I've been having mega difficulty acquiring a wardrobe I like, soooo, I've decided to take some action. Now, I'm a big fan of 50's fashion, tight fitting "bowling" shirts, pencil skirts, that sort of thing, but buying such things is painfully expensive.

I've read a lot about adjusting t-shirts into tighter fitting, more flattering tops, but I've been wonderng about collared shirts, if the neck's too big, is it possible to make it smaller? Would it be easier to just buy a shirt that fits round the neck and take the collar from that or would it not attatch properly? So many questions!

Anyway, I won't ramble on anymore, if you can help, thanks in advance!
