1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Whimsical? Surreal? Painting after Nicoletta Ciccoli and some drawings on: December 31, 2010 08:59:08 PM

Feel free to post what it means to you or any other comment, critique or question!

This is painted on wood (not very fun) in the likeness of Nicoletta Ciccoli's work. Her prints are really awesome. If you have time, look her up! She has some very alice in wonderlandy stuff.
Mostly this was inspired by these three pictures:

Here are some petty drawings I did, all after pictures I took, but am too lazy to post beside them =D

Actually unfinished and sorry for the horizontalness! Someone said the fur trimmed hood looks like the horse's hair. I agree. What an awesome picture Idea!

Dyre, my homing pigeon and the rest have my horse in them, but I was changed, mostly because I cant draw myself Wink

comment, critique or question!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Luna moth Fairy with life-size wings. Art display on: December 31, 2010 08:17:00 PM

Made these wings and fairy for an art show display at my school. Her antennae are feathers, her hairsticks I made out of resin, ribbon, etc., and her wings are typical clotheshanger, nylon, spraypaint wings. The luna moth is the same. She even has a delicate feather eyelash =D
I think her head shape is a little weird but o well.

She is cardboard with tissue paper skirt. I made her wings detachable so I could use them for a costume if I wanted to.

THe display contains My faun boots(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=326746.msg3772265#msg3772265) , glittens(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278831.msg3155216#msg3155216), mask, painting, Shrinky dink and polmer clay jewelry(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=287566.msg3260483#msg3260483), Tree lamp, hood, etc.

She actually didnt take tooo long. The paint was still wet when I took her over. Now She hangs in my room.

Comment! Critique! Ask questions!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Horse Halter or Bridle Covers and Jewelry! (rhythm beads and hair clip) on: December 31, 2010 07:52:07 PM

Easy to make! All you need to make you horse furrier is faux fur, velcro and thread. I figured out how to make these by looking at pictures of shipping halter covers I think. Great way to personalize horse stuff.

The Jewelry is simply string (I used leatherish stuff) with beads and bells. Both the necklace and hair piece have clips to keep them in place.

Burma likes her carrots =)

There dont seem to be many horse creations on here so I thought I'd help out. If you have a horse feel free to post their beautifulness. We need more horsiness on Craftster =)

comment, ask questions, etc

4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Frolicking Furry Faun on: November 03, 2009 02:01:13 PM
Maybe a distant relative of Mr. Tumnus?

The lines on the legs really bug me. I had to use a furry blanket. they weren't as noticeable indoors at least. I didn't have to spend any money on the costume except the heels which were like $2 at a thrift store and gorilla glue which will go to my dad anyway. so under $10 on this costume because i used what I had. Yeah the "flute" and "arrow" is just a stick. I wanted to make a panflute for the costume but didn't have time.

this picture shows the hooves well.
The leaves are just beautiful. Problem is, its hard to see my hocks that i worked so hard on

and for anyone curious about the hooves, they were high heels minus the heel (and those were quality heels! I had a really hard time getting those heels off),

old window screen, paper mache

and car bondo. ^that's the progress of the legs very roughly done but well secured. One heel i ripped off the outer layer to have more flexibility but the other one ended up better for ankle support and gorilla gluing the fur.

and theres me working on the top. No pattern, totally winged it. I ziggy stitched instead of actual hemming b/c it gave it a more 'rough' appearance...plus i hate hemming Undecided

The feather is a tail feather from our turkey that i found. The necklace, belt, and leather pouch are my sister's. the other thing hanging from the belt is a necklace i made using the other one's idea with random feathers,charms, etc. I made the cloak as well. It was less than even a half-circle cloak. I figures fauns are pretty warm with the fur. And let me tell you, I wore this to school and it was extremely warm.

this is in study hall. The ears and fake leaves I just used bobby pins to put on. I made the horns out of gold polymer clay with diamond studs and glued them to clips.
the flowery arm thing was going to be a wreath for my head but i changed my mind. It is braided cloth w/ fake flowers

My inspiration came from many places. main picture references >  http://woodwose.deviantart.com/journal/22922793/
 I found the tutorial for the hooves on youtube >  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdYCDHK6WJI&feature=fvw

This was a particularly fun costume to make and even funner (if hot) to wear. It even kind of forced me to walk like a faun.
I will answer any questions as best i can. And of course comments are always quite welcome!
And this is also my first contest entry. yay!

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wire horse and trees on: January 13, 2009 03:31:54 PM
I made a horrid wire horse in art last year and i decided to try again only smaller. I gave these to my neighbor who has horses and helps us with ours.

It looks better and less wiry in person. sorry i didnt get more views

for the trees I was inspired by this thread by eternallyeve

C&C welcome
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / twilight bracelets, wire and a necklace on: November 16, 2008 02:43:37 PM
the first bracelet is Edward. the two black beads represent his sparkliness. The second is jacob and that thing is the closest thing i could find resembling a carved wolf charm. He gets shells because he lives near the beach.

i made this awhile ago. I like the glare=)

thats supposed to be a panda.

aggh! my wire rings disappeared! ill post them later;)

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hi again with snow tigerrrr accesories. Hat, scarf, and glittens! (img heavy) on: November 16, 2008 01:38:12 PM
Inspiration for the hats from Hellga's fox hat
Glittens from my own tut http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=276577.0
Thank you to lianatempera. The thumb thing worked! but i dont think i could explain it in my tut
Scarf from my own brain

Yes i photoshopped a bit=P

arent it purty?
start with the hat

^ i had to show you my awesome spirals^ the rest of the felt was machine sewn but these took forever by hand coz the felt had a sticky back and it was harder to penetrate. I also used a leaf stitch for the hemming.

scarf^ machine embroidered designs I drew with chalk.


thought id show you how much better my most recent ones are compared to these^
im improving=)
Next hats are hopefully a ferret one (thanks eilea) and maybe a zebra? who knows what might happen!

feel free to ask any questions and of course comments are always welcome!
