1  Robot Bunny Sweater/Hoodie (reconned sweater) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tskkmyhr on: January 30, 2011 11:12:29 AM
so, er, I dug up a sweater that I probably got a few years ago...and it was wayyy too big for me. So, naturally, I decided to take it in a little (forgot to take before pics, sorry)

Then I decided it looked a little plain...sooo...I added a hood Cheesy made out of an old gray t-shirt...

Yep, it's supposed to look all patchy...I was going with a sort of robot minion theme, like Frankenstein or something XD and on the back, yep, those are wings Cheesy

and then some detail of the hood...

comments, critique, anything is appreciated Cheesy

2  Recon OC Cosplay from random old clothes in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tskkmyhr on: January 24, 2011 06:49:17 PM
Hello Cheesy Erm, I didn't know which category this belonged in - it's mostly recon, though, so I put it here Smiley
so for Home Economics, we had to create an outfit out of the old clothing in the classroom...basically, the outfit couldn't be anything "normal", like street clothes. Our instructions were basically to use old clothes, and be creative. We were allowed to create the clothes for someone else, if we wanted to. Because I know I suck at home ec and the time the teacher gave us in class probably wouldn't be enough, I asked him if I could do some of it at home...and he agreed Cheesy so I have pictures and stuff to post on here Cheesy

The whole thing is based off of Takeda Manami, an OC that my friend made up. Here are her details:
Name: Takeda Manami
Gender: Female
Age: ?? No one knows, probably high school age, but can pass off as a girl anywhere from 11 to 16
Hair: Pigtails, black
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5 feet, 2 inches
Background: Nicknamed the Joker, Manami looks cute on the outside, but is actually cold and calculating within.
Story background (well, some of it...I didn't go into plot details): Takeda Ren suddenly appeared from a mysterious background to the assassin syndicate, THORN. She rose to rank 1 of the syndicate within a very short time period because of her MPD, which she can somehow control. Each "character" within her has a different outward appearance and name, as well as a different uniform.

After I heard about it, I figured that Manami was based off of my friend (well, she's not cold and calculating, but her appearance...it's a joke between us that she can pass off as 11, her height is 5 feet 2 inches, and her favorite color is blue, sooooo...) So I told her about my home ec project and asked if she wanted to be the model, and she agreed Cheesy so after me failing repeatedly at sewing (really, sewing machines are...I don't know, they must hate me or something XD I ended up doing half of it by hand TT) I finally got the thing done Cheesy

ack, ignore the scrunched part of the skirt where I messed up sewing the black part and white part together TT I fixed it when I got to school, but I didn't have a chance to take another picture...

The back closes like this (really simple, I know):

Oh, and we met up so I could figure out her size before I started sewing, and she brought some old clothes that she thought I could use. This was originally a long sleeved shirt, but I cut the sleeves off...and I tried to start the white line, but I, er, failed. Yeah. XD I got it eventually, though! Cheesy

I really like her pigtails, too Cheesy *completely off topic /shot*

Anyways, all in all, I used...one blue long sleeved shirt (sorry, forgot to take a picture of that TT), two black leggings (one of them is shown Cheesy), one pair of black pants, part of a batman cape (er, I cut it before I realized that I forgot to take a picture...), and one white tank top. Oh, and 5 buttons, 4 of which I took off of some coat, and 1...well, I found it lying in the middle of the messy pile of clothes in the home ec room, so I don't really know XD

oh, and then the picture of Manami that I used to create the whole thing (my friend drew it...she says to ignore the green background, because she always makes it some crazy color while drawing to make sure that she doesn't color outside the lines, and she can never think of a good background to replace it with...)

er, comments, critique, anything is appreciated Cheesy

3  Yamamoto (from Bleach) in Needlework: Completed Projects by tskkmyhr on: January 17, 2011 05:00:56 PM
erm, hi! so, er, it's my first time posting here ^^ If this is in the wrong category or something, please tell me!
Anyways...so one of my friends was helping me with something, and I thought I should probably make a thank you gifts or something along those lines...his favorite character from Bleach (it's a manga/anime) is Yamamoto, and I saw some pretty awesome embroidery here on this site and thought I would try it out Cheesy It turned out harder than I expected, and I now have a very healthy respect for anyone who can embroider at all ^^ I had to dig up some needle and thread from the bottom of my closet, and I cut up an old clean t-shirt...and I sort of just winged it. All I know about sewing is the running stitch I learned in kindergarten, so I did something sort of weird to get all the lines filled in (er, it's sort of like, you start with a running stitch and then double back and do a running stitch over it to fill in the white spaces? I guess...). And the rest is colored in with colored pencils Cheesy eh, onto the pictures!
In the middle of coloring:

Finished coloring Cheesy

Done Smiley

er, as you can probably see in the last picture, I stretched it out between two books (namely my Physics textbook and The Little Princess =.=) and I have no idea what to do with it next XD yeah, erm, how do you frame needlework? Should I back it on cardboard or something first? D: Yeah, completely clueless ^^; Also, now that I look at it, it looks sort of...plain? don't know XD if there's anything I can do with the boring white background...Help would be appreciated Cheesy along with comments and critique Smiley The needlework isn't all that great, I know XD oh, yeah, and the reference picture:
