71  My "Captain Jack Sparrow" Photo Shoot in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by fluffypants on: July 04, 2008 09:07:52 AM
Hope I'm putting these in the right place!  I had so much fun with these that I just have to post them.  They're for a Frosh (orientation week) website for my college; I'm a Frosh leader and we're all doing spoof movie stills for our profile photos. I pulled out my Halloween costume I made last year, and went down to the waterfront on Canada Day with my boyfriend to get the pics.... forgetting that the festivities were going on down there and there were SO many people wandering around!

Here are a couple of the best ones.  My boyfriend was the photographer, but he doesn't have an account here. Wink

I've got a jar of dirrrt, and guess what's inside it!

Me and the boyfriend... I like the off-centered unbalanced look of this one.

There are a few more decent ones- (the photography ain't amazing, but they're amusing pics Wink) -if anyone wants to see just let me know! Smiley

Finally I have internet and time to post the pics of the great stuff Megan sent me!

A cute little pair of knit pants that fit perfectly on my fingers! Wink

A little flower hair clip, black and pink wristwarmers, and a little 'ideal fluffy pants girl' bag! Cheesy

I even got something I requested, which is better than I expected!  A black and pink hoodie!  It says 'fluffy' on one pocket, and 'pants' on the other! *giggle*

Thanks so much, Megan, I love everything!  Hope your package arrives shortly!

73  Duck Hunt NES zapper lamp- update pg.8-feat. in Nintendo Power & GamesMaster! :D in CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES by fluffypants on: May 01, 2008 06:51:57 PM
Check page 8 for a big update!  I've been featured in Nintendo Power magazine! Cheesy

So one day I picked up an NES Zapper (gun) and went "woah, that would make a cool lamp!" So... after playing around...

I gutted one... who knew this is what they looked like inside?

Then I stumbled around for ideas for the base and shade.  A regular cartridge was too small a base, so I measured one and made a 1.5 scale replica out of cardboard, and screwed the gun to it.  I weighted it with stones, and then tackled the shade.

I picked up a $2 shade at the re-store, a pack of fun foam, and voila!  After hours and hours of cutting pixellated shapes, I was done!  A little dab of glue to secure the shade, and... ta dah!

I didn't get any shots of it lit up, unfortunately, but it does work! I just didn't have a decent bulb. Sad

74  T-shirt quilt (my first quilt!) in Quilting: Completed Projects by fluffypants on: May 01, 2008 08:34:20 AM
My first quilt!  Looking through my t-shirt collection, I knew I had to part with some of the old ones from my 'buy the biggest shirt possible!' phase.  (I fit mediums, but had a phase where I bought XL and XXL all the time).  So... I couldn't bear to part with the memories, so I found a way to keep them in a different form!

My mom helped lots, it was probably about 50/50 between her any myself.  I love the final product, though- and every single shirt reminds me of something... and of course, the whole quilt will always remind me of making it with her! Smiley

75  Captain Jack Sparrow Costume in Halloween Costumes by fluffypants on: April 30, 2008 08:59:52 PM
Okay, first off, I'm not a big fan of the PotC movies- but seeing Johnny Depp's costume- well- I had to attempt it! I did this for Halloween 2007, I'm still working on it bit by bit. I got a compass tonight, I'm hoping to make a coat and hat for the next time I use it. Smiley
One of the big tips I found on many websites was to 'dirty up' the clothes, but I couldn't bear to rub dirt all over my brand new pirate shirt and boots after they'd cost me $25 each. Hehe.

I only got one decent pic (which unfortunately doesn't show off the boots I made Sad )

Let's see here, I'll have a brief little breakdown of what I made and what I bought.

Renaissance shirt
Men's pants

Boots: from a pair of black square toed dress shoes, covered in ultrasuede, and made into about knee-high boots
Sash: from a pillowcase, painted stripes with acrylic
Belts: bought belts, made buckles from Sculpey (night before Halloween, haha). I hung some things from the belt like Captain Jack had in the movie; some little furs and things.  Didn't have a compass, but I just found one today in a mega blocks playset, hehe!
Bandana: made from pillowcase
Wig/facial hair: Wig was store bought, but I cut, styled, etc. it all myself. 
Beads were also handmade from Sculpey, and the stick was one I found and carved to shape. Facial hair was extra clippings from the wig.
Vest: from men's dress shirt

I think that's it!  If anyone has any tips on a pattern that would be good for a jacket, I'd really appreciate it--- and any tips on making a hat would be awesome!  I found one tutorial, but it would be about $80 to make their hat.... money I don't have... heh...

Any questions/comments greatly appreciated and welcome- I'll post pics of the boots when I get home if anyone's interested!

76  My first slide lamp! (5 pics) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fluffypants on: April 29, 2008 08:22:14 PM
My fingers are aching from doing all the jump rings by hand... but I think it turned out alright. Smiley It's going to be my Aunt's birthday gift in 6 days!
I got the slides (of 'Veniza') at Value Village, as well as the lamp (no shade- perfect!) Just had to buy a hole punch thingy at Wal Mart, and a billion jump rings. (Did I mention my fingers hurt? hehe).

Anywho, here it is!



I love the swivelly factor. Cheesy

Scary crafter with crafty lamp:

I love the light it casts Smiley

Questions and comments more than welcome! Smiley

Oh yes, I forgot the link to my inspiration!! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=46294.0

77  Flower Power lamp in CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES by fluffypants on: April 01, 2008 05:34:43 PM
I was at the dollar store buying some things for a friend's birthday the other day, and found some placemats, 2 for $1. I only wanted one, but picked up an extra because they were so cheap.  I was sitting around at home, twisting it about, and when it was in a tube, I went 'woah, that might make a cool lamp!'
So another trip to the dollar store later, I came home with a veggies & dip serving tray, a SpongeBob night light, and some little metal flower stickers.

The final project:

And here it is lit up!

A quick wordy tutorial, as I forgot to take progress pics:
-I measured down each side of the placemat and made marks at 1" increments. I then punched holes at each (I heated a nail over a candle and pushed it through- the placemat is just thin plastic, and I'd lost my hole punch).
-I wove this together with a green leather cord I found in a box lying around here, and topped each weave with a metal flower sticker, to make it look like a flower with a green stem
-I took the SpongeBob plate off the front of the night light, attatched it to an extension cord, and stuck it in the dip section of the serving tray (secured with tape).
-I cut a nook in the placemat tube where the cord comes through

It could also be used without the tray (might look nicer on a table) but I like having the tray so that if I have it beside my bed, I can chuck my odds and ends on it (earrings, watch, change, etc). Smiley

And there you have it!

Total cost:
Placemat: 50 cents
Tray: $1
Nightlight: $1
Flower stickers: $1 for 10, I used 5

=$3.50 with stickers left over!

One more pic, 'cause it shows off the placemat nicely Wink
