1  2 hour, $2 plain blue dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kkiinnkkyy on: January 25, 2007 11:05:44 PM
So, it's Australia Day today Grin And I didn't think I'd be going out last night, because I recently cut my foot, had stitches, etc. etc. But my foot felt walkable at 5pm so I thought why not? And then... oh bugger, I have nothing to wear.

Had a few metres of this stretchy teal material lying around (which I got for $1 per metre)... basically measured myself then cut two slanted rectangles and sewed them together. I'd decided I wanted the top to fold over so that I could go braless Grin so just extended the top, then sewed it over permanently. Added ribbon for a halter.





Excuse the crappy bathroom shots.

It looks kinda weird with a red belt, but I needed to be wearing red white and blue, and my shoes were white Smiley I can see where I've gone wrong - where it's a bit lumpy, etc. - but I think it's not a bad effort considering I was ready to go out by 8!

So I just took this now:



My hair is driving me crazy! It takes about half an hour to get it to this - I'm a uni student who chooses to have classes at 9am (am I crazy? Yes, yes I am) so while I would LOVE to roll out of bed and wander onto campus I have to spend 30 mins blowdrying, scrunching, gelling...! How on earth can you have low-maintence curly hair?? Also not sure if I want to change the colour, I never have before... opinions?

(And excuse the expression Smiley)

3  Tarty firefighter costume in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by kkiinnkkyy on: October 29, 2006 01:59:18 AM
So, I live in Australia and Halloween isn't a big deal - so basically I've never made a costume! But this isn't for Halloween: every year my university has a "sex fetish" party where you go as your favourite fetish. Er... best if you don't read into that too much. Anyway, this year I went as a dominatrix, and it's always full of the typical schoolgirls and nurses costumes that take no thought whatsoever. But I saw this firefighter costume and thought "$120 - get ****ed!", and that maybe I could somehow make it myself...





So... what do you reckon? How do I even BEGIN? I haven't found a pattern I could base it on, other than to do a basic long-sleeved dress, lower the neckline, shorten the skirt...! Also any suggestions on where I should look for material?? I have a LONG time to get this organised (over 6 months) because I want it to be perfect: although we're MEANT to look slutty I don't want to go too overboard... (Also, anyone reckon the fire-engine red will clash too badly with my red hair - or should I don a blonde wig... haha)

Thanks in advance guys!

5  "Spring racing" dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kkiinnkkyy on: September 22, 2006 11:35:38 PM
My university holds this huge ball every year, with 900-1000 people, all tickets sold out. Smiley There's a different theme every year and this year was "Spring Racing Carnival" - I live in Melbourne, so even though I'm against horse racing, everyone just goes crazy this time of year for the fashions and all... Anyway, this is what I made. I also made this bag to go with it.


(sorry about the lame shots!)

I've got about 100 shots from the actual ball and unfortunately only two of them show the dress! The second unfortunate is that in one of these photos, my friend is nearly naked in a g-string. So I kinda blurred it. ... Be grateful, believe me.




Comments appreciated! Wink

6  My first dress: black halter for cocktail party in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kkiinnkkyy on: September 01, 2006 01:53:33 AM
Hey guys! This is the first dress I've ever sewn 100% by myself (no help from Mum). Used Vogue 7521, view A, with a fair few modifications. I made it about a month ago for a cocktail party held by the ski club at the university. Unfortunately I haven't got any photos from the night (free cocktails - too drunk Smiley) but just took these before:


The dress on my bed


Sorry about the cruddy bathroom shot


The skirt is super super super full! It has the best twirl Smiley But I couldn't figure out how to take an action shot of myself.

So yeah. Smiley

Whooo! I got my package from teraspawn yesterday - THANK YOU! She got me an awesome stencilled t-shirt (somehow, from my myspace, she was able to tell I was vegan... I have no idea how...), a homemade book of vegan recipes and health information on being vegan, fizzling bath salts (MMM!), my NAME WRAPPED IN WIRE (I'm amazed, it's so cool!) and a cute-as paisley ribbon. Here's the pics!


Excuse my retarded face. I wore the t-shirt to a pub crawl last night and got oh-so-many hugs! Grin


The book, ribbon, bath salts and my name.

Awesomeness!

My hair is so boring compared to you guys! It's never been coloured and I rarely do anything with it.

However, I did have it braided in South America last year:

(sorry about black and white)

And when I took it out, it was what could politely be referred to as an "afro":


But usually my hair is just boring red curls:

(it's a terrible picture, but I took it just now to show you guys my hair.. hehe)

Any suggestions on what I could do with it that isn't terribly drastic? Like.. temporary? Smiley
