1  Faux Deer Taxidermy made with clay & wire [Tutorial link included] in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Sammo6661Deth on: January 03, 2014 07:09:40 PM
Happy New Year, everybody! I can't believe it has been about two years since I last posted something on this site.

Recently, I became really intrigued with faux deer taxidermy. I'm not sure where I saw this awesome resin stag head...but it was more than $100 and out of my price range. I even went to the flea market at Giant Stadium to see if someone was selling anything remotely close to a deer. Nothing. That's when I decided to make my own, so I started hunting for tutorials online. I found a few but nothing that really caught my eyes.

The items I used were mainly on sale from the crafts store and basic household items or tools. In total it costed me less than $20 to make.

It started out with just a resin cow skull, which was too small for the wooden plaque I got for it. So I sculpted clay on top of the resin skull.

On my wall with some of my favorite necklaces hanging from the antlers

I have the tutorials split into two parts on my blog and also on Youtube:
Part One: http://kurowonderland.blogspot.com/2014/01/tutorial-diy-faux-deer-taxidermy-part.html
Part Two: http://kurowonderland.blogspot.com/2014/01/tutorial-diy-faux-deer-taxidermy-part_3.html

So, it has been a LONG time since I posted here on Craftster. I really miss it here!
But since it's Halloween season, I wanted to share something that I did a couple months ago.

This is what it used to look like:

3  Seashells & Rhinestone deco eyelash case in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Sammo6661Deth on: February 03, 2012 04:22:56 PM
For more informatioon, please visit my blog!: http://kurowonderland.blogspot.com/2012/02/false-eyelashes-mini-haul.html

I have no idea where to post this but this seems to be the right place (I hope)

Earlier this month I went to Japan Town in San Francisco and I went to a mini shopping spree in Daiso. For those who don't know what Daiso is, it's 100 yen store in Japan. While I was in Tokyo a year ago, I was marveled by the four-story store! In SF, the prices for most of the products are $1.50. So I bought an eyelash case so I can store all my face lashes inside.

It was a bit plain so I decided to give it a makeover!

4  Union Jack Deco Nail in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Sammo6661Deth on: January 27, 2012 05:20:10 AM
It's been a LONG while since I made a new post on Craftster. College has been sucking the life out of me; I'm so glad it's my last year.
I've been getting into nail art a lot lately, especially those long gyaru nail designs.
I've always loved the design of the Union Jack so I decided to put it on my nails!

For a tutorial, please visit my blog at: http://www.kurowonderland.blogspot.com/2012/01/union-jack-deco-nail-tutorial.html

5  the Gazette tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Sammo6661Deth on: December 15, 2010 11:37:54 AM
I made a present for my friend's birthday which was yesterday but I won't be able to see her until next week when we go to Tokyo together. I can't wait to give this to her!

We're both big Gazette fans and one of the biggest reasons we're going to Tokyo is for their concert at the Tokyo Dome. I thought it'll be nice to make her a custom bag Grin

So I stenciled two of her favorite members on the bag. Ruki on one side, Aoi on the other.

I also made her a little keychain charm of Ruki with shrink plastic.

I had a lot of fun making this bag; I hope she'll love it as much as I do.

6  Guro Lolita in Halloween Costumes by Sammo6661Deth on: November 12, 2010 06:23:51 PM
This Halloween I decided to be a guro lolita (or a grotesque lolita). I've always been intrigued by the lolita fashion and finally I found a lolita style that fits my other interests. This is my very first attempt at anything lolita.

I bought this dress from Bodyline and splattered red paint on it; I think it came out pretty good. This is the original dress http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/photos/l092-2.jpg
I actually took off one tier of the dress because it was way too long for my short self   Undecided
I also made the rose eyepatch out of canvas fabric and the pendant.

Better detail of the dress:

(I need a puffier petticoat Cheesy)

Closeup of the pendant:

Originally, I bought clay to make a brain cupcake since I work at a cupcake shop and had to work the morning of Halloween. BUT the clay that I got was SUPER hard to mold so I just made somewhat of a replica of a SUPPURATE SYSTEM pendant. Stuck nails in and spray painted it black.

Thanks for looking~

7  [NEO TOKYO SAMURAI BLACK] Miyavi Shirt with HOT PINK Tulle in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sammo6661Deth on: July 12, 2010 07:37:38 AM
I made this a couple weeks ago for the Miyavi event at Kinokuniya in NYC for his Neo Tokyo Samurai Black World Tour 2010.
He was amazing and so funny & he was flawless the next day at his first show in NYC. I had so much fun!  Grin

I sewed ruffled white twill tape and hot pink tulle on the bottom because it looked plain if I didn't  Grin

Sorry for the crappy pictures, I took these right before I had to leave my house to go to the event Embarrassed

(I was making a stupid face ;])

"One more stupid pose before I go!"
Hey! Look, there's Miyavi over there! ;]


I'll tell you right now that I hate the way his face turned out.
And I was lazy and left out the Dué le Quartz tattoo on his wrist.
The guitar was a nightmare...had to freehand the strings and frets

Thanks for looking!
Tell me what you think!

PS: If anybody was wondering, the wig I'm wearing is from Lady Like Couture (http://www.ladylike.tk). It's so pretty and look/feels so real!

8  An IOU in a Takeout Box in Completed Projects by Sammo6661Deth on: May 14, 2010 09:35:17 PM
It's my friend's birthday on Monday and I knew exactly what to buy her. So today I walked all the way from my college to Times Square Toys R Us to get her the Architecture Guggenheim LEGO set...BUT THEY DIDN'T HAVE IT! If I bought it online, it would definitely not arrive by Monday!

So I thought I'd make her an IOU present for Monday.

The 'fortune' says "Happy Birthday! <3 Sam"

Hope you can actually see the gif animation

Here's the helpful resources I used:

9  Roses & Skull Top Hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sammo6661Deth on: April 04, 2010 03:01:45 PM
I made this for a photoshoot I did. Most of the hat was put together with a hot glue gun and the only sewing was the red ruffles.

I've always loved sugar skulls =]

I was out of clay because I made this top hat in short notice so I used PlayDoh for the skull and the roses, painted it and put Mod Podge over it and prayed that it wouldn't crack.

A couple action shots from the photoshoot (Thanks to Darya for taking the pictures):

(I look kinda dazed out because it was so hot that day!  Wink)

Thanks for looking!  Grin
Tell me what you guys think!

10  Kitty & Bunny Felt Scarves in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sammo6661Deth on: December 28, 2009 03:10:26 PM
I don't quite remember where I originally saw these cute scarves...I think I was Christmas shopping in the Village and I didn't buy them because...it was like $40!  Shocked

Being the poor college student I am, I decided to make some myself to give to my friends for Christmas.

Sorry for my lack of...poses.

Tell me what you think!
Hope everybody is enjoying the holidays & is staying warm!
