11  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Regency guerilla sewing - two dresses on: July 22, 2009 02:08:36 PM
One of my friends is going to be making a movie soon. It's gonna be kind of pride and predjudice style; and she asked me and another friend to whip up some dresses. So we got together today and made 2 regency style dressen. One long sleeved and one short sleeved.

On to the pictures:

12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Get to know each other swap on: July 22, 2009 02:11:55 AM
So I know a lot of people (including myself) aren't able to commit to the huge make-a-friend swaps. Due to time or postage trouble.
So talking to some others I came up with the idea of a small swap. In wich we would get to know each other a little bit better before crafting. It would be an international swap. Open to anyone and this would kind of be the package idea:

- 1st package - A letter to your partner about you/your town/whatever you want to talk about, 2 postcards of you town an 3 photographs (of you or somthing significant around you. This would be possible to be fit in an evelope.

- 2nd package - A package including 10 picks from a list of 20 (kind of like the list they're using in the make a friend swap right now. Totalling a minimum of 5 points of crafted items the rest can be store bought but doesn't have to.

-3rd package - Another letter from you to your partner and a small thank you craft (notecards/jewelry/bookmark) Just anohter something that would fit in 1 envelope.

Any thoughts on this?  I would love to host/organize and my proposed time will be sign-ups at the beginning of september. 1st package due 30th september, 2nd package due 31st of october, 3rd package due 30th of november.
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Our biggest project yet, my brother's sea room and my eastern room. IMG OBESE!! on: June 14, 2009 03:48:44 AM
So my mum is a teacher but actually she would much rather be an interior designer. I've been pushing her to do what she actually wants to do which is redesign the entire house.

I'm starting my first semester of theatre and scenery design this summer and wanted to change my room.

Thus we combined our powers and started this obese project. First we picked new furniture for both my and my brother's room. Then we made up some color and theme scheme's.

We started out on my brothers room. We layed the floor ourselves, painted the walls, made the curtains and ended up buying loads and loads of little things to decorate the room with. And this is what it looks like right now:

My grandma made a painting for him to hang on his wall.

On to my bedroom, it's a little more cluttered but that's what it usually looks like Tongue
We painted the walls, two of them to match my furniture and the other 2 to match my curtains which we also sewed.

I saw the design for the heaven above my bed in a tv-show. I absolutely loved it and I wanted one myself so we went and bought 4 see-trough table cloths and sewed them together. We attached them to the ceiling using 3 curtain rods.
I also made the mirror above my bed. It's mosaique in white, pink and grey. To match the main colors in my room.

The corner with my desk:

I always dreamed of become in a professional dancer but that dream was shattered when I twisted my knee. In honour of my dream my aunt made a painting in grey to match my fatboy.
14  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Snape is my favorite teacher: Harry Potter iron on transfer on: February 12, 2009 02:51:54 PM
My first time using this new Iron-on transfer paper I found at a local store. It was a birthday present for a friend of mine who is obsessed with Snape, basically with anything Alan Rickman does. I cut away all the white from the transfer hoping it would stay on a little bit better.
I got the stencil from a Harry Potter forum I can't find the link right now but I'll post it when I retrace it!

She absolutely loved it Cheesy
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Sewing stretchy fabric (dancewear) on: January 22, 2009 05:06:35 AM
I bought this treally cool 4-way stretch fabric. I want to sew some dancewear from it but I'm not sure how to put the pieces together because the material is so icredibly stretchy.
It's actually quite heavy material (because so many metres go in one skirt/ pair of pants.) I probably put in an elastic band so the thing will stay put around my waste Tongue

Is there anyone who can explain this to me?
16  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Shiksa goddess (photograph & photoshop) on: January 20, 2009 12:34:03 PM
I made this for a friend of mine. They had to do self-portraits about who they are as an artist. So she came to me to ask if I could take pictures of her with the diffent attributes that represent her many diffrent interests. (filming, painting, musical theatre, music)

I put all of it together into this little number here. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I know it's not perfect, there's like one arm almost falling of. (if she only could've worn something with a little less pattern) Tongue but I sill like it.

When uploading the thing got a little bit pixelated (it was originally about a meter high)

17  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My Larp costume on: November 07, 2008 08:36:15 AM
Ok so we don't celebrate Halloween in the Netherlands. Which sucks big time, but I did dress up a week earlier to go out LARPING. It was really fun, and I wore the thing again to a semi-halloween party on saturday. I made the entire thing, pants, shirt, cape and backpack (which I have no pictures of) myself in a day. I didn't use any patterns.

Ok so on to the action shots. I have to put the thing on sometime to take some regular photo's. Please excuse the crappiness of the pictures. They were all taken while playing so some of them are kinda blurry. I love the action that the pictures show though.

I'm in the center. Almost everybody you see in the pictures has actually made their own costumes.

18  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Photoshoots (commentary wanted) IMG HEAVY! on: June 19, 2008 09:51:47 AM
Ok so I've been crazy about photography for a while. It's my passion, but I don't know if I'm any good.
I used these pictures for an art portofolio I did and I like them a lot. (they're taken in my schools theatre.)

Since I don't know anything about photography (I'm 100% trail and error) some constructive critisism is much appreciated.

I'll upload some more pictures as soon as I have access to a proper computer.
19  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Ground shipping USA to Europe on: June 18, 2008 06:32:35 PM
Has anyone experience ground shipping from the USA to Europe.
With what company? and what was the price?

I've been trying to figure this out but the websites only confuse me. Undecided
So I'd like to get some mouth to mouth information.

20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Shop the swap (supplies only) on: May 13, 2008 01:06:21 PM
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a shop de swap for supplies.

I'm moving soon overseas and I can't take all my craft supplies with me but I've too much to just give it away. In this way I could collect points and later spend them when I'm back in Europe.

what would anyone think of this?
