So my partner hasn't been able to post pictures yet and I've been dying to put what I've done up on here! On top of these, I also sewed a shirt and screened some of the lyrics on it but I don't have really good photos of it so hopefully she will be able to put her own some time Smiley

I designed an 80s inspired bag because my partner loves the 80s and bright colors. I screened the fabric with the "RENT" logo before sewing it all. I used a magnetic closure.

I made a corset reusable cup sleeve:) I don't drink coffee so this was an adventure lol (the coffee cup in the pics is just a flat one I printed out so it looks a bit funny lol) The inside is lined with leopard fabric.

Spur of the moment I made a scarf inspired by Mark's scarf in the show

I picked up my awe inducing package from acidtrix today after a strange accosting incident in my lobby lol Whewf, small concession for the amazing things that she has bestowed upon me! I'm extra excited because there is a Repo showing Friday night at which I will be wearing my newly modified Amber Sweet costume.. And my birthday is Sunday Smiley I feel so spoiled and happy right now! Yay!

Everything came in a big box, which I skipped happily down the street to my apartment with. On a side note, bubble wrap? Guilty pleasure. lol Smiley There were so many cute things inside!

The Pavi painting, how gorgeous is this! The canvas is extra deep too, it is so well done:) Acidtrix made a special point of changing the colors to my favorite ones: red, purple and black. I can't wait to hang it up on my wall so all my repo obession friends can also be enamored!

Then she made me two one of a kind pieces of jewellery in sterling silver which I have been wearing as soon and I opened their little boxes with shining eyes lol She has got mad skills! The curves and outline of the Zydrate necklace alone could make a less skilled smith lose their mind. I totally bow to her powers of metal lol

I'm going to wear the necklace instead of doing the AS chest scar so I tried it on with the upper portion of my costume.. (I'm going to try to get some pictures on friday when I'm completely outfitted)

And lastly and wonderful card, monster bandaids (hell yes!!), a cute cute cute kimmidoll, and a button pin that says "corporate fashion has no passion. sew it yourself!"

I'm so extremely happy and thankful for everything! Acidtrix is amazing:)

I got my package from PaperWings today! She went with my supreme love for Repo: The Genetic Opera! Everything came in this pretty box.. That GLOWS IN THE DARK! I tried to take a photo with my small camera of it glowing but it didn't work out lol There was a very cute card too:)

And inside was a beautiful pendant inspired by Shilo's cameo:

And lastly, a really pretty skirt made with this ausome fabric and lace trim! I put them on together lol For those of you who haven't seen the movie, the image on the right is a screen cap so you can get the idea:

Thank you PaperWings! Smiley

97  Marvel's Black Cat (Felicia Hardy) in Costumes: Completed Projects by smashu on: March 04, 2009 12:46:08 PM
I made this from scratch, minus the underbust corset:) There are a few variations of her outfit but I like this one the best so I tried to stay true to form. I love being a superhero lol Also, I actually used spirit gum to glue the mask to my face. It retrospect, wasn't the best idea lol

98  Re: Repo! The Genetic Opera! (The SWAP!) Signups Feb 17-March 7 sendouts March 31 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by smashu on: February 28, 2009 10:03:35 AM
So, with me working with so many different casts over the years, to say, That Repo:Genetic Opera is here forever!!!! It is saying a lot!

Also, to have transitioned my 3 kids age ranging 16, 14, 9 (all of them are damn close to their next bday) from being Rocky fans to die hard Repofreaks! I'd say I am doing my part! LOL

Okay seriously, I wish you were my mom. Or my big sister at least. hahahah! I am totally jealous of your ausome life of championing epic musicals! And rock operas of course:)

I was a late bloomer on the Rocky Horror front, watching it that is. Weirdly enough, the actual soundtrack was one of the first cds I ever listened to. When my parents first bought a cd player, right when the players were starting to become something that people were buying for their homes, they got a really random array of stuff to play. Being as I was young and there were no kids inspired tunes, I grabbed up the few that had the coolest colored artwork on them and sure enough RH was at the top LOL

Repo though, is another story. I heard about it long before they were done making it and was ravenous to see. They actually shot it in Toronto where I live, which is AUSOME! They premiered in in Quebec for the Canadian Release but soon after we had the Toronto release at the big horror movie festival here and it was AMAZING! We got to chat to Terrence that night and he came to hang out in a pub afterwards with alot of the audience & the costume designer, sf/x artist, various smaller cast members, etc did a q & a. It was brilliant! They also did the wide theatre release here so they had special events every night with q&a's, props (the pavi masks and blind mag's cloak) and a zydrate bar. God, I love this city! Smiley

The shadow cast does indeed switch gender roles, though I think a few of the roles are static. The Repo Man last night was a woman, as well as Rotti! It was extremely clever and amusing, I'm insanely impressed with them. Yay! I can't wait to do this swap... 

The Genterns are two of the most ausome girls who have made the shadow cast the amazingness that it is (I'm Amber lol):

99  Valentino Style Bow Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by smashu on: February 10, 2009 06:14:19 PM
I've ended up already mading a few of these for presents in various materials because everyone loves them so much! This one is for my best friend's belated xmas present. Styled after the beautous Valentino Bow Purse and made in Shantung, lined with a thicker upholstry material for stability. Two pockets inside.

The outer bow portion works so that you can fit your wrist through in a pseudo wristlette style:)

100  Secret Xmas Suprise: Nightmare Before Christmas [bit image obese] in Winter Holidays by smashu on: January 24, 2009 11:31:41 PM
I decided for my parents xmas present this past year I would, with the help of my trusty little bro, strip all xmas paraphenalia from the living room and do it all Nightmare Before Christmas! All in secret of course, after our parents had gone to sleep on xmas eve.. You do need to know that my parents actually like NBC alot and do have random paraphenalia around the house but they were never expecting anything like this to happen! I made everything from scratch:)



^Mini coffins made with old illustrated calendar pages

^I did 12 of these I think, made of felt and I painted the actual black lines making his face with acrylic.

1-Polymer clay Jack Skellington heads, I did 30 each with different expressions and mounted them on a large satin ribbon bow and felt base. 2-A man eating plan to add with the pointsettas, drool included!

I made 4 stockings, one for each kid in my family (Mine is the Sally one lol) completely on my own design. I had so many compliments, people wanted me to sell them! lol I used a quilted cotton base with felt for the characters themselves and a cotton lining. More detailed shots (I apologize about the images being so dark, my camera busted while I was visiting so I had to use someone else's):
