1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / MP3 Monster/Dino Case on: February 23, 2009 08:32:44 AM
I bought myself a voice recorder/mp3 player, but alas, I didn't have a case for it! And since I'm incredibly clumsy and I drop and scratch everything, I decided to make my own. I made the case out of black felt, glued on some googly eyes and velcro, some little feet, teeth, and orange spikes going down his back. After I finished, I thought "Hey, where will the headphones go?" And so I made a little mini monster/dino for holding those. The little guy has velcro on the inside, too. The only problem was that I didn't make the case quite tall enough, so the top part has to bend a little over the mp3 player when I close it Sad

Here are the pics!

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / More Twilight Jewelry, but I Swear This is My First and Only! on: February 18, 2009 03:21:55 PM
For Christmas I made a cousin of mine some jewelry, based on the book Twilight. No, I've never actually read it. So I decided to make a personalized necklace for her. There are 4 charms, all made from Shrinky Dinks! My first time playing with Shrinky Dinks, actually. The one with the names are done with sharpie marker, and the picture was drawn with colored pencil. The hardest part was doing the writing backwards on the plastic lol...So I think she liked it, I also made matching little red and black earrings to go along with it.


3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Vala Mal Doran from Stargate SG-1 Cosplay (now with pics!) on: February 18, 2009 03:15:38 PM
This is my first post ever! I decided to stop being a lurker, and to actually post some of my crafty crafts.

For SuperCon last year, I made an outfit worn by the character Vala Mal Doran, from the SciFi tv series Stargate SG-1 (one of the most amazing shows EVER, btw). It's all fake leather. I hand made the corset using a pattern, then added eyelets up the back for threading. The neck-piece was done by hand, I didn't have a pattern so I just kindof guessed and fitted it on myself for measurements, and also added the grommets on it. The corset and neck-piece are connected by leather straps that are actually velcroed on underneath, so they can be worn seperately (came in handy when I wanted the corset for a pirate outfit!). The pants I bought at Goodwill, hemmed down the waistline, and took it in on the sides. The boots were bought at Goodwill (an amazing 4 bucks!!). The Jacket is reconstructed from one bought at, guess where, Goodwill! I cut along the front and hemmed along the edges, then added a buckle for the collar, and buckles all down the front. They are all functional (which make it awesome, but pretty much a pain to get on and off). Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of me actually wearing the jacket. The con was in May...in Florida...that plus a leather outfit does not mix! lol.

Oh, and did I mention that I did all the sewing by hand? I didn't have a machine that could handle more than one layer of pleather. So I ended up with a ton of bent needles and some very sore fingers. But that's ok, because I did the majority of the sewing while catching up on all ten seasons of Stargate (I'm a nerd, yesh I know).
