1  Re: Roller Derby Swap Round 3 Gallery (Sendout 4/8) in The Swap Gallery by elektrafying on: April 28, 2011 08:18:35 PM
OMG OMG OMG!! So after four failed attempts at picking up my package - I was finally able to today! At first I thought "wow, that box is huge!"



my mind was racing as to what it could possibly be. I took it home and furiously sliced open the tape and unboxed...a masterpiece!

First up was a bitching mouth guard with a sculpey figurine of the girl from logo of my local derby league, the Rideau Valley Roller Girls. It's also got an amazing rhinestoned skull, which I squeed over.

Also included was a really excellent embroidery hoop with a Charlie Sheen reference to "Winning". What she had no idea (and managed to pull out my head due to her semi-clairvoyance) is that I say "Winning" all the time! Most excellent!



But the piece de resistance is the container the mouth guard and hoop were in - a hand painted, completely customized VINTAGE luggage bag! I was freaking out the entire time, but totally lost my shit when I saw this.



She browsed my wists and was inspired by an Audrey image I had wisted, and of course had her naturally holding a pair of quads. She also browsed my past swap and saw that I had done a RHPS themed swap, so she used a similar font to write my derby name in. AMAZING!

Thank you SO MUCH, Zidisha - I completely love everything and was totally blown away. You put so much work into this, and I really, really appreciate it. Thank you so much for spending the time and effort. AMAZING.

I'll get better pictures later, I just wanted to check in and express my sincere thanks.

4  Rocky Horror Picture Show Lips bag (img heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by elektrafying on: September 07, 2008 08:03:28 PM
I made this for myloveasdeep in a RHPS swap recently. I bought the bag since I can't sew to save my life, and used iron-on transfer paper for the lettering, and rhinestones for the lips. My wife wrote two pieces of software from scratch for this project - one to lay out 4mm circles over the entire design, and one to count them (so we'd know how many rhinestones to buy).



Then we marked each rhinestone hole through to the fabric, which ended up not being necessary since we only used the first four marks (and counted up/over the amount of spaces on the grid to place the next stone)



We used the single-stone applicator tip which ended up taking a long, long time (next time we'll use the flat tip so you can melt like 4 stones at a time)







There are 120 clear, 650 siam and 150 pink hot-fix glass rhinestones involved (give or take a few)

Several hours later we were done!




Then we iron-on transfered the lettering, and I then went over the lettering with diamond and ruby glitter paint (which you can't really see from the pictures)

and taa daa!
