Very cool... It's super satisfying when you are something not quite mainstream and people actually get it.

Alcohol-based body ink....never heard of it. Was considering doing a black 'n' white pin up girl costume but couldn't figure out a good way to do the skin. Will make a note about that stuff, in case I do that costume some other time.....And that I need to buy lots of goof lotion for afterwards.

Congrats! Being able to make a classic bag like that is super handy. And lining it, much nicer, as well as more difficult, so kudos for that! I make these for gift things all the time. Bottle of wine, "Survival" or "emergency" kits (college, wedding, friendship, etc.) and lots of other stuff.

Thanks for sharing! I don't like sandals (ugly toe nails) so I wear a lot of ballet flats. And, like you, I find they tend to get grubby looking before I'm ready to retire them. So glad you came up with a way to revamp the inside, too. I know exactly which pair I'm going to do first...

26  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do I make this more steampunk? on: June 24, 2012 08:32:25 AM
check the jewelry making section of the craft stores. They often have old looking bits of chain, hooks and stuff.

I agree with the rough your stuff up a bit advice. Maybe drive over everything a couple times?

For sure a belt. Try the thrift stores on that one. Also on the jewelry. Shoot, and for a bag. I have found some great, worn and sort of old-ish looking bags over the years that are great for steampunk.

Tights or knee highs socks, cotton. Maybe make the skirt have a bunching, hiked up effect. Maybe a garter or with the knee high socks, carry a "knife" there, so it peaks out and would be easily accessible for all sorts of piratey hijinks.

Those are some great pieces you're working with, should turn out fun.

Hey girlies...can I come?
I was thinking the same thing...but I know June has been/will be so jam packed hectic for me I'm planning on keeping July very very unbusy. And I already have 3 parties/events I attend on the 21st... and that fills my busy quotient for July. Maybe another time...
28  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: GALLERY Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan on: June 03, 2012 08:00:48 PM
So I didn't participate in this swap but I wanted to comment that I am reading this series again because I saw this swap...I literally went and picked up the first 3 books the day after I noticed this swap while checking out the gallery for the one I was doing... So yeah, thank you for inspiring me to read these books again...

Also, everyone's stuff looks so great. What a fun swap.

Green...and sort of green (teal). Great fabrics....I'm thinking the teal sewing theme fabric might have to be used for my own crafting tool belt. So perfect! And these coordinating strips are super cute. Might be time for new make up bag.

Vintage....super cute vintage trims! Love trims....

Sharp....Bazinga bitches! Needle book that you are all jealous of...you should be. It's going into my sewing kit I keep in my car.

Round....Big Bang Theory gang magnets. They are going to work with me tomorrow so my new coworkers can start to figure out that I'm a nerd.  Grin

Tiny....super cute buttons! Love buttons! Already have ideas on how they are going to be used....yay!

Local - Necco candy from Revere, MA....which tells you where costumesaremylife sort of lives. You may stalk her if you like.

Sender's choice....I call him Herman. He is deeply loved. My roommate is jealous. I will start carrying my cash in him immediately. That way, when I buy stuff I can show him off.
