1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Marie Antionette Prom Dress on: June 16, 2008 09:53:03 AM
Once upon a time there was a girl named Carolyn who was on a bus with a boy named Neil. They were playing the quetion game with their friends Andy and Bethany. One question that changed the game entirely was this one:
"If you could bring back one item from the past, what would it be?"

Andy: The copyrights for the first gun! I'd be a millionare!

Carolyn: A big huge poofy dress like.....Marie Antionette, yeah....a dress...

Neil: You'd never where it, though

Carolyn: Yes I would!

Neil: Where to?

Carolyn: A ball....or a masquerade...or a dance...or school

Neil: Yeah? Would you wear it to prom?

Carolyn: YES!!! That's be soooo cooollll!!!

Neil: Even if nobody else was dressed in costume? I bet you wouldn't

Carolyn: I would. Totally.

Neil: If you can find a Marie Antionette dress, I'll take you to prom so you can wear it.

And the rest, as they say is history.
Carolyn joined forces with the sewing hero, Grandma Beth. Together they reconstructed a goldenrod colored evening gown from the thrift store and made it into the Marie Antionette dress of Carolyn's dreams. Several fittings, pinning, and trips to the fabric store later, this is what they had:



With a custom fitted crinolin underneath the dress (thank you thank you thank you Grandma Beth!)



The inset is purple silk and there are two bows (not shown) above the gathered bits...



And the back! Tada! Corset!

The dress+hair and make-up=


And although Carolyn tried, she just could not get Neil to dress like King Louis.  Cheesy But here he is looking dapper in his tuxedo:



The had a wonderful night dancing and dorking around. And so far, life is pretty happy, ever after.

The end.

All my love and dork-y-ness,
Carolyn/Cooby



 
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bleach: Memories of Nobody (Caution, fan girl at work!) on: June 15, 2008 07:16:38 PM
Who here loves Bleach?! I know I do...

I went to see the Bleach anime movie 'Memories of Nobody' on Thursday. Ohhh was it ever spectacular! Four of my friends and myself came with me to the 'two-night only' showing at our local movie theater. Through out the entire film I was scrutinizing Kon. Kon is a stuffed lion who hosts a soul-thingy in the series. But he's adorable! *fangirl squee of joy* I studied his construction and then, the next day, I crocheted my very own Kon!

Please note, I cannot make a pattern for him since Kon is not my own creation, but the creation of the author of Bleach.

On with this pics!!!













And here's a picture of the 'real' Kon for all you non-Bleach watchers:



He's the lion, duh.

Hahaha, hope you enjoy my freakish fan girl-ness, and yay Bleach!
All my love,
Cooby
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hedgehogs, the best animals ever. on: May 22, 2008 07:11:33 PM
So, I've got this fetish. This...hedgehog fetish. I love hedgehogs. It was only a short time ago that I thought, "Hey, I like hedgehogs....and I can crochet......hmmmmmm....wait, I got it!!! I'll crochet a hedgehog. Yeahhh...."

So, onto the fruits of my labors! These guys went to a dear friend of mine who took all the pictures of 'The Hogs' as she and her boyfriend have named them.


This is the guy, his name is Spike, and yeah, he's blue like Sonic.


This is Spike's girl, her name is Sally. She has super long 'quills' and tends to be a little emo.


Here they are, checking their facebook account.


...chilling on the couch....


Spike: Is that a hedgehog?!
Sally: I...dunno....


Kissy-kissy


Thanks for checking out The 'Hogs and putting up with my dorkiness, once again. Grin

All my love,
Cooby

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Teddies Have Scars [Img silly] on: April 24, 2008 03:46:35 PM
This is the story of two teddies, Aiden and Annabelle Lea.



Late one night I heard some strange noises from downstairs upon investigation, I found a strange fellow entangled in my sewing machine.



After extracting him, I was startled to see his numerous scars and bandages. He told me that his name was Aiden, and he was looking for a home. I told him that I'd gladly help him in his search. so off I went to school the next day, and when I got home, guess what I found?



Apparently Aiden had become the object of some curiosity with my other stuffties. Hmmm.

Aiden entertained us that evening with some light piano music. This bear is really quite talented! Sadly, his claws scratched up the keys so he was banned from the piano. Roll Eyes



He told me that he was lonely, so we set out to make him a girlfriend. Aiden carefully watched the entire process, giving me much criticism along the way. In the end, Annabelle Lea was born.



And here they are, sitting happily together. Who could ask for anything more than two love-struck teddies with scars?

The end.

hope you don't mind my dorkiness! Grin

And some credit deffinatly goes to the Softies book, for inspiring the creation of Aiden and Annabelle Lea, as well as to my dear friend AJ who asked for "A teddy with scars" for his birthday. Aiden will be moving to his new home this weekend. I wonder how Annabelle Lea will take that!  Shocked Hahaha

All my love,
Cooby
