2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / "I have loved the stars too fondly" wall art on: July 29, 2014 08:07:43 AM


I am most definitely not a painter, but I was making a housewarming present for a friend and wanted to try something a little different to what I normally do. I used a wooden board for the canvas, and slapped down some nice thick layers of dark blues, dark purples, and a bit of black. Then I used silver paint to write out the quote. As you can see, I messed up a bit in the middle and there is some smudging >___< My consolation is that it is not quite so visible in real life! The stars are also done in silver, but they have glow in the dark paint added over the top. They do not glow very brightly, but when viewed at night they do look quite lovely ^___^ I need a *lot* more practise to get my brush control looking neater, but nonetheless I am happy with how it looks ^___^

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / My Lumpy Space Princess Costume (pic heavy) on: July 29, 2014 07:52:47 AM



I made this LSP costume for a con I recently attended. It was so much fun! This is by far one of the most comfortable costumes I have made, and lots of people recognised who I was, which was fantastic! ^___^



I brought my wig and tights, and my belt was something I already owned, but everything else was handmade ... or at least upcycled! ^___^ The dress is the main bit of the costume - I am very lucky to have a fashion designer as a friend and she helped me to create both the pattern and the dress. It's a simple pattern, but it fits perfectly and is oh so comfy ^___^ The bodice is fully lined and the skirt has three panels to ensure much fluffiness. I also wore a petticoat underneath it to really up the fullness. I personally think it could have been even fuffier ... but I only brough three meters of fabric and I figured I'd probably want to sit down at some point during the day ~___^



I also made my hair clip (felt, glitter mod podge, and a clip backing) ...



and my necklace (shrinky dink, nail polish, sharpies, chain, and jewellery findings) ...



and my bag (glittery vinyl, leather scraps, gold paint, a zip, chain and jump rings, hot glue, and embroidery thread)!



My shoes were ugly and beige when I brought them from an opshop; I have to wear shoe inserts to fix my dreadful feet so I picked out some old lady shoes that I knew would fit my orthotics and also be comfortable. Then I covered them in glitter and mod podge until they were hardly recognisable! I made some giant bows from satin ribbon and added clip on earring backs so that I could fasten them over the straps of the shoes.



And that's that! The only other thing you need for a LSP costume is a good side eye. I think I've got it downpat ~___^

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Nyan cat pillow plushie on: July 29, 2014 07:03:01 AM


One of my friends recently had her first child, and as they were decorating the nursery in a rainbow theme, I thought a nyan cat would be a perfect gift! But I was really worried about the baby pulling off a tail or a leg and eating it or something (you can tell I know next to nothing about children) so instead of an amigurumi I made this pillow plushie kinda thing. It was easy to make, although time consuming as I did everything in single crochet to prevent stuffing leakage. I broke down the nyan cat into simple shapes and then just sewed them all together.



The little blushy cheeks are probably my favourite part ^___^



The back is covered in this lovely soft minky dot fleece. Hopefully this can be something that the baby can enjoy now as well as in years to come! ^___^

Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be any glue on it. I am starting to think that this is just made wrong as my friend brought the same product but hers didn't have any glass in it. Very confusing! Thanks for your reply though Onyxnox  Smiley
