I decided this year I wanted my Halloween costume to be awesome. So! I decided to make a Silent Hill nurse costume! I fell in love with the costume designs when I first saw the movie (can you blame me?! They rock!) I've been working on it on and off for the past two months, and all in all, I think it looks okay! I used a few Instructables tutorials, as well as pictures online as reference, and a lot of it was very by the seat of my pants when things didn't go how I wanted Please forgive the current quality of pictures; I'll post better ones after I have a photoshoot with a friend sometime next week
I used plaster strips from Michael's. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Hardens super fast, malleable, SUCH a pleasure to work with and cheap!
Back of the mask. It's pretty much a helmet on my head, but there is a tiny concealed nose hole, plus it's lifted a bit off my face so I CAN breathe okay! Not perfect, but I can survive!
If anyone is interested in learning about how I did it/links to sites I used, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm very proud of it I know it's not perfectly like the game/movie version, but it's close enough for me!
We have a TON of old barbie dolls still sitting in our basement, so one night when I grew sick of trying to fix a mouth on one of my puppets, I pulled out my paint and a barbie and got to work! I've made two (another has become an experimental one to test things on). One has a music theme, the other... I'd like to say uniqueness. The first shot are their heads, but the next are shots of their 'naked' backs and legs, etc, and I'm not sure if those could be constituted as NSFW, so I figured I'd warn you about that. .
The music one isn't sealed yet, so she photographed a little easier. The purple one has glitter and is modge podged over already, so I appologize for the diffaculty in reading her. She has ways I thought you could be unique all over her body, such as: 'Be joyous', 'believe in inner-beauty', and 'smile.'
Back shots. The quote on the music doll is from William Shakespeare: 'If music be the food of love; play on.'
Their legs. Time sigures are around the music barbie's ankles
I'm hoping this is the best place to put these, as they're not exactly meant to be played with, but are dolls all the same... Thanks for looking!
I made these guys a while ago, back in the summer, and am just getting around to posting about them now, hehe. Anyway, meet my first puppets: Screamo, and Slap Pappy.
This is Screamo. He's... Afraid of everything. He's even afraid of Edward, silly Screamo. He wears his sign, stating, 'It's the end of the world (as we know it), and 'the end is near!' to warn people of the incoming dangers.
The one on the left, is Slap Pappy. He was my first attempt at stuffing puppet arms, and... When he runs, they fly out to his sides. Hence his name. They arn't perfect, and I learned alot from making them; like, I need to be much more careful when cutting and gluing so things don't fray/come out uneven However, my cousins have a blast playing with them when they visit, so I guess they're good enough for them! Thanks for looking
A bit of backstory. In science we have to make something to hold a report on enviromental issues in out of recycled stuff, things you would normally throw out, etc. But I couldn't just stick with the report-cover-out-of-a-cereal-box, oh no! I'm a craftster! I needed something that would stand out (hopefully!) I got a pile of wrappers from my aunt's house, two rolls of tape, and got to work. Two hours or so later, I had this:
Inside, honestly the best picture I could get. The back of chip wrappers isn't the easiest thing to photograph.
The body is chocolate bar wrappers, the inside is two chip bags (Silver side up) and the flap is a chip bag as well. The button is a soda pop bottle cover with two hole poked into it, and the handles, what the cover is 'sewed' on with and the strings holding it down is a cut-up plastic bag. I know that won't hold it well, but I wanted most of it to be recycled, except for the tape, of course And I probably won't be using it much outside of the project. I'd need to make a stronger one. I learned alot through this one, anyway!
What do you do when you're bored and have just watched a few videos by Neil and Emmy Cicierega and the rest of the Potter Puppet Pals people? Why, you make your own Potter Puppet Pals stage, of course!
It amuses me. Except for the fact that the first batch of people (Snape, Harry and Ron) Burned a bit. And Hermione's hair isn't quite the right color. Sigh. The stage is clayed with tinfoil inside, and the characters stand up with the help of toothpicks and holes in the bases
Voldemort, Voldemort, oh, Voldy-Voldemort!
There's even a stand in the back for Harry and his angst!
So, while I was out today among other crafty things I picked up some modge podge to try making pendants with pictures on it. Modge podge is offically my favoritest thing of the week! It dries so fast and works sooo well! I'm impressed. Anyway, on to my pictures!
Front, a howling (were)wolf...
I've recently been introduced to the musical "Notre Dame De Paris". I love it, to put it mildly. So, there's the church.
The back is the title of a song. It means 'It's the time of Cathedrals (Can't spell it in english ) With the window from the church.
Front (It's Hansel and Gretel, hehe)
Anyway these pictures are sooo much better. I thank tigerita for teaching me a bit about my camera
After seeing xperimentl's post showing her fuzzy sock monkeys, I decided I had to make a few sock monkeys of my own
My two monkeys!
My first monkey. It's arms were uneven, so I sewed them together so you souldn't see as much. Shh... So it just sort of looks like it's clasping it's hands together, or praying, if you'd like. Haha. The black bits arn't part of it, they're just bits from my other monkey that didn't get brushed off after my cousin was playing with my sewing things
My halloween sock monkey. It does have a nose and mouth, just not very visible. I'm not very good at faces. Hm.
They were my first attempt at sock monkeys, hehe.... . I'd love comments or whatever! Oh, apparently the pictures will stay rotated now...? On my computer at least.
My camera wasn't behaving so some of these pictures are blurry... This one is my arrogant fairy. If I can get a better picture I'll post it. I love her, even if she isn't the best... I think she was my first attempt at a fairy...? Anyway, as soon as I get my craft room cleaned she'll probably keep me company there
Another ballerina, like my angel.
A few little sushi plates. I'm not exactly sure if they look authentic, as I don't really eat sushi, but I like them still.
