91  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Used and Misfits tops on: February 24, 2010 07:49:33 PM
A 'The Used' reconstructed shirt, XL guys shirt, some stretch knit, red tulle and grommet tape.

And a 'Misfits' XL tee, and grommet tape turned new again!

Sorry for the crappy lighting on these.

Let me know what you think ^^
92  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My attempt at a record purse ^_^ on: February 24, 2010 07:40:27 PM
I'd seen a couple record purses out there and started working on mine about a week ago. Made out of a culture club album and a 'we are the world' album by USA for Africa...

before the records went on... just showing the lining I put in.

put some studs on the bottom so it would sit a little off of a surface (dont you hate puting something down at a restaurant/bar and getting gross all over it? I sure do)

Culture Club side

Aaaaand the other side
The purse itself is something I made from scratch, and then I glued the records onto the side using heavy duty glue... and threw my guitar strap on as a strap for the purse cause I got really lazy thought it would be fitting to have a fender strap...

Questions/comments welcome! Would love some feedback!!
93  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Plaid top, stencilled sleeveless top and bikini top! Oh my! on: February 23, 2010 07:34:40 PM
Hey there, first time to actually post something I made so I figured Id shove a few things in here all at once! ^^;

I was so excited to use this red plaid material it was unfit. I held onto it for YEARS waiting for its perfect use (I only had a very narrow strip and it only stretched one way so I had to be careful Tongue) side panneling is fishnet just cause. The back is just a plain black tshirt material and on the straps I added some studs, which keep falling off.. but thats another matter! I think they will have to be glued on cause they just continually slip out of the material and need to be put back in again...

Sorry about the necklace being in the way, I didnt have a good picture of the shirt without it... anyway, simple top made out of (again) tshirt material, the hard part of this top was designing the damn stencil.. then cutting it out.. twice (for a mirror image) and then putting it on the shirt and painting it and hoping it was symmetrical!!!

last is this funky reversable bikini top I made.. one side is lycra, the other black PVC, ties around the neck in the back and in the front with some D rings.

Thanks for looking, questions and comments welcome.

PS: I make all my patterns from scratch, if youre wondering.
94  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Help! Trying to construct paper cuff bracelets. on: February 23, 2010 03:29:38 PM
Ive been wanting to do this for a while.. I see stores selling bracelets out of old papers and I always wanted to use lets say, pictures out of old calendars, or magazine pictures and make cuffed bracelets out of them. I know some people cover the paper in packing tape for the coating but I cant get it on neatly. Anyone every make something like this? What do you use? Im thinking either laminating the pictures or getting clear vinyl and sewing it on that way.. wondering which might work better.
95  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Themed days in for vacation, ideas and help needed! on: February 23, 2010 02:38:12 PM
My friend and I are having a reunion in Toronto in April, and he had the idea of making some different themes to dress up with (hes very much into ren. faires and the like) so Im wondering if people have ideas of different themes and things that could be made/references for them? Like victorian, 1950s, etc.

Any ideas I would love as I tend to just want to dress up all the time anyway.. I really shouldnt have been born in this era Tongue
