21  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Roger Manning Jr. Costume on: October 28, 2005 07:47:16 PM
I am...-

Roger Manning from the band Jellyfish! (Also from Imperial Drag and Moog Cookbook)

this is his outfit from the Jellyfish video, "The King is Half Undressed"
I made the vest and the pants, and bought the shirt at GoodWill.

I tape my boobs down. Itchy.

I origonally used a Simplicity pattern, but I didn't like it (it was more like making PJs than bell bottoms!!) and pretty much did a full reconstuction of the outfit afterwards...
I also made a 'purse' that looks like a keyboard (Roger played keyboards) that I'll post later.
22  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Hair sticks idea on: October 16, 2005 11:06:46 AM
I want to sell these-
Hair sticks that shouldn't be anywhere near your hair.

One idea that I'm about 95% sure on is paint brushes that look like paint is slightly dripping off of them. For the artist sort of person.
The idea I'm having trouble with is razor shavers. Making them dull (to the point that there is no way it could cut anything) and making them so they slip easily into hair.
Now, would seeing shavers on someone's head be disturbing? Or would that be interesting?

Also, if anyone has any other ideas for things like this, it would be very helpful (I want to sell at least 3 different styles)
23  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / An idea for selling that needs feedback- Quests! on: October 09, 2005 09:56:57 AM
Alright, so I've recently opened up my own web shop to sell things I make, and I have an idea..

So, sometimes, I can't find the fabric for something anymore. Something happens so that I know I won't be able to make anymore of something for a long time, and so there are only 2 or 3 of the items left. But more people than 2 or 3 people want them (people procrastonate, you know how it is)

Instead of just selling them, first come, first serve, how about I send them on quests!

Lets say I only have 2 Voo Doo dolls left; I'll trade them for a Galaxy Express 999 poster instead of selling them! Or, since I mostly sell to my friends and most of us have passes to DIsneyland (and Disney will let you in the park for a hour for free for shopping on Mainstreet. Lots of 'for's right there), I could say, "You'll only get this scarf if you give me Cruella De Vil's autograph"

Is this silly? Or is this a good idea?
Thank you all for feedback!
24  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Funny present, or sick? (Birthaids!) on: October 01, 2005 12:15:07 PM
Alright, so, my sister was talking about how one of her new friends, whom she barely knows, came along one day and said, "My birthday is Friday! Get me something, k?" and that got her thinking, what would be a good present for people you don't really know? Or who are hard to shop for? Something really origonal and funny...

and of course, she asked me what I think. Which was a bad idea, because I tend to have a sick mind. my idea,
Birthaids. A vial of fake... bodily fluids.. with a label saying 'AIDS'

I KNOW. Its sick. and wrong. But me and my friends think its a good idea for those like us who are rather strange and outgoing. You could give it to just about anyone other than your grandmother, and we're hoping people find it funny.... lets just hope we don't offend people.

So, I'm starting my own online shop of things I make and am thinking about selling them.

Good idea? Bad idea?
And anyone know of a good website were I can buy wholesale vials and such?
