Thanks for the advice Mandanak, I opened up the nose and it looks a million times better.  Plus, it was more comfortable being able to breathe and all.  Smiley

2  Samhain Greenwoman Mask in Halloween Costumes by FaeoftheRoots on: October 25, 2009 12:22:30 PM


Edit: pic is the modified version of the mask, now with the ability to breathe!

I'll be invoking Earth at a Samhain ritual this year and decided to make an autumn leaves and ivy mask to help me look the part.  It's a cheap white mask from Walmart with fake leaves hotglued on to make it awesome!

3  Warm Cloak for the... Summer? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by FaeoftheRoots on: June 06, 2009 12:25:10 PM
I'm going camping in the Mendocino Woodlands (Northern California) at the end of the month and it can get downright cold (40s F) at night.  Instead of carrying around a blanket, I decided to make a cloak out of microfleece with a pretty jacquard edging:



Six yards of fleece and 12 of the jacquard went into the making of.  The design comes from Antimony and Lace: http://www.gothfashion.info/circlecloak.php

Unfortunately blurry detail shot:


Here's the jacquard I used:

4  Choli with non-matching handkerchief over and a-line under skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by FaeoftheRoots on: June 06, 2009 12:04:23 PM
The choli (top) is part of the American Tribal Style bellydance costume.  The fabric is stretch velvet with a plain ole bias tape for the hemming.  The pattern came from a wonderful gal in Australia:  http://members.iinet.net.au/~ramsden/tribal/index.html





The orange skirt is based on Renegade Sewing's Titus Skirt, but I can't seem to locate it online.  It's designed to be about knee length, so I just dropped the line to ankle length.  Apparently the key is keeping a 90 degree angle in the bottom corners.

The brown skirt is based on the handkerchief skirt instructions found here at Antimony and Lace: http://www.gothfashion.info/circlepixie.php

5  Clay Wall Hangings in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by FaeoftheRoots on: April 16, 2009 10:40:46 AM
Two of my favorite pieces from my pottery class, amusing as these are the first two I made:





The brown looks like stamped leather in person.  I love it!  The texture was created by Lynn over at http://potterytexturequeen.com/rubberstamps.html

8  Re: Flat Stanley/Stacey's Altoid Tin Suitcase in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by FaeoftheRoots on: November 21, 2008 10:44:44 AM
There's a lot of written info that goes along with Stanley, about ecology, flora/fauna, etc.  One idea I really wanted to get across was that California isn't all warm sandy beaches; definitely a misconception that I had when I was a kid.

I wound up printing little mini posters of CA, the Golden Gate Bridge, Humboldt Bay, big trees, a state map etc.  I also made polymer things: a California Quail, Gravenstein Apple (Gravenstein is right up the road from here), a pumpkin, and a knockoff of the traveling gnome from Amelie.

9  Male Gnome Pattern Baldness in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by FaeoftheRoots on: November 20, 2008 01:53:54 PM
I wanted to make a gnome that wasn't the typical happy go lucky bearded fellow.  What could make a gnome crankier than going bald?

Now with better pics!

10  Flat Stacey tri-color mini-scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by FaeoftheRoots on: November 20, 2008 11:02:33 AM
I'm the "California Aunt" to my WV-native nieces and so when the Flat Stanley/Stacey project came up (send a paper doll to someone in another state to learn about geography, etc.) I won!  In an attempt to show that California is not all beaches and sunshine, "we" made scarves together.  I also made her a suitcase out of an Altoid case and polymer clay (already posted in the clay board) to take souvenirs home.
