1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Endless Braid Bracelet?? on: July 14, 2010 10:38:49 PM
 Cheesy I found instructions for the first time yesterday evening, how funny that you're asking this morning...
It's not completely endless, but i guess you could hide the one knot you need or use glue instead.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / tentaculous wall decal on: April 22, 2009 01:21:16 AM
First time posting except for commenting, so I have to post links instead of the actual pics, sorry.
I live in student accomodation and the rules are extremely strict: no painting, nailing, or even only thumbtacking something to the walls allowed. But surely nobody objects to wall decals on the tiles, right? So inspired by various craftsters I sat down and cut these out of selfadhesive foil (cursing myself for having sketched out so much detail...)

Excuse the blurryness of the pictures, I didn't realize they were blurry when I took them...
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Reclaiming crystallized honey? on: January 17, 2009 09:37:27 AM
naturally honey cristallizes after a while, i can't remember how they treat it, i think cheaper honey even have something added so it doesn't do that. so the fact it's cristallizing says something about it's quality... but you can truely dissolve the crystals again by heating, though i've never tried microwave.

congrats, 2 hours really isn't a lot of time for a complete dress with apron and top, looks great too
i even managed to find an audio-file of it being pronounced :-)

5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Succubus feet (pic NSFW) on: July 05, 2008 04:37:22 AM
actually... yes  Grin
i thought i had seen pretty nice horns somewhere here on craftsters... here they are:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=244412.0 and while looking for them i stumbled across some other things that might be of some use: for one somebody who really got goats horns somewhere... maybe you can do the same, seeing that they're at least partly hollow inside they might well be lighter than polymer clay horns... and then i found another project which might help: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218138.0

hi, right, some brainstorming
high heels sounds like a good idea, maybe add a lump to the heel and cover the whole thing loosely with fabric that you then fix further up your calf, that might give you a leathery skin effekt when you move your foot and it might give you this elongated foot the succubus on the pic has... maybe if the fabric is too soft you can stiffen it (it'll prob stiffen a bit if you paint it anyhow...)
for toes and similar bone structures the fastes i can think of are foam piping like stuff you can use for insulation, that comes as long tubes, you could stick stiff wire trought the middle to give it the general shape, probably you can carve it to shape or tie it down with a tight thread loop to get the joints... dunno about the claws though, doubt they'll work that way. anyhow highheels would be a good base for that kinda tubing-feet... the whole thing could then be covered with fabric, not down completely but slightly loosely.
and as for the horns: friends of mine do a lot of live-action roleplay and they have a vast amount of costumes. what they told me they did is make small things like ears, small horns,... by covering a rough mold with vith vaseline (so the finished thing comes off at the end, the mold can then be reused), then paint layers of liquid latex over until they're thick enough, always letting them dry inbetween and at the end powdering talcum over the result. if they make bigger things or things that have to withstand more they use a glassfiber core, cover it with foamy stuff (like these sleeping mats for camping) and then paint the latex over...
that way you can make very convincing stable lightweight objects, but it's quite a bit of work... just mentioning it

oh, and i have seen high stilts that had that kinda shape and were sort of springy, a man miming a satyr had those, but they are really specialized.

right, hope the ideas are some help, sorry for the long post
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: White Warrior(image heavy) on: April 05, 2008 09:14:45 AM
don't want to be a spoiler, but the white worrior on the original seems to either have a high collar to her top or a very broad choker... maybe you could go for the choker.
otherwise the outfit looks very alike! congrats
