1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A bunch of Halloween costumes! (really picture heavy) on: November 15, 2008 05:17:34 PM
Hi everyone! So I work at a big thrift store, and we are required to dress up for the whole two weeks before Halloween. (You can also wear a company Halloween t-shirt, but that's not a very cool thing to do). Thus, here are my two weeks worth of costumes, most of which are handmade in some way. We had themes for all of the days too, so they're listed before them.

Harry Potter day - I was Luna:

Dead Historical Figures day - I was Vincent van Gogh, complete with fake blood on my left ear. People would be like OMG YOUR EAR IS BLEEDING and I'd be like, yeah, it's fake. I'm van Gogh, get it? (and then sometimes they would be like ... so? and I'd have to explain that he cut his ear off, wrapped it in some newspaper, and gave it to a whore. Fun.)

I hand-painted the shirt (bought the original one at the store I work at).

Classic movie villains day - I was a vampire.


Nintendo day - I was Link.

Altered the tunic thing, made the hat out of spare fabric (was super easy, just a triangle with elastic casing)

Zombie/MJ/Thriller day - I was a zombie, specifically inspired by that one childhood story about the girl with a ribbon around her neck which keeps her head on, and if she unties it it'll fall off.

This link is to a detail shot of the neck makeup/makeup in general. It's kind of gory and looks a bit scary I guess. If it's going to be too much/a trigger/something bad, don't click it. --> http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w138/londonhearts/closeup.jpg

Rocky horror day - I wasn't a specific character, just followed the general vibe of the show.

Made the shorts (hot gold fishnet layered over pink jersey) and black coresty thing with beading.

Indiana Jones day - I didn't know what to do for this one, so I made this the morning of. I was the pit of snakes:

Made sign/headband, and snake shirt/shawl thing.

"Bestest costumes" day - I was Artemis:

Made the corset (details below), the "leaf" crown thing, the skirt, and the bow.

Whew! Hope you guys enjoyed it, and sorry for the total pic spam-age.

15 minute speedpaint

digital speedpaint number two, theme: moonlight. meh.

"emo boy" (don't hate!) oh, and my username on most other forums is chocolatecello, so that's why it says that. i think that was my username before, but i decided i wanted something different/new/yay.

copy of a vincent van gogh painting i did in my art class. medium: oils

original still life. medium: oils. i like this, but the composition's a little boring :/

tech specs :: i use a drawing tablet to draw all the computer-done stuff (first 2) along with painter XI.
also, sorry about the ugly watermarks on the last two - what can i say, i'm paranoid and didn't want anyone to steal them :/

Made these for my friends for xmas - shh, don't tell them XD
and i tried the whole "make cool images for your crafts" thing...hmm

^ what kind of handle/strap should i add? i think messenger bag style; she'd find that more convient, but what do you guys think? ^

8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Fabric art thing on: September 03, 2005 12:20:16 PM

I'm planning on adding more, I think.

The picture of the person is cutout from a magazine and they machine-sewed right ontop of the lace. :3 cool, hmm?
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my first bag :/ on: January 08, 2005 08:02:48 PM
http://tinypic.com/17d3yt <---detail of handle

Kind of bad. and it's not really crooked, it just looks like it. I couldn't find the digital camera so I had to scan it Sad and its my first semi-successful sewing project, so yeah.

it's also lined with lighter green fleece.
10  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / pants patterns? on: January 07, 2005 05:55:23 PM
Okay, so I am having a really hard time finding "junior style" pants patterns. All that i see are PJ pants patters or really high wasted, tapered ones. Like the kind you find in stores, basically, is what I'm after. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20264.0 there was a really good topic here like the kind I wanted to make, but I don't think she's making a tutorial

Any suggestions?
