1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Leopard Costume for mommy n baby on: October 16, 2013 12:50:04 AM
Well I got the bottom half done ha ha ha !! So far, I think I like it...
Thoughts? (though I wish I had made the elastic a lil tighter and the back a little higher, but for a first attempt, I'd say a good one considering I've never made pants before =D)

front close up


back with my awesome tail haha


and the baby pulling my tail XD


pardon the mess, the baby was 'helping' XD

2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Totally in need of ideas, mommy & baby costumes on: October 02, 2013 06:20:31 AM
Okay... I'm offically stumped....

This year for halloween (yay my toddler is still young enough I get to decide her adorable costume), my 2 1/2 yr old is going as a little leopard... which we're making out of a few white n pink leopard print fleece throw blankets (horray for $2 blankets!).... Which we've all seen those bunting style jumpsuits (the kind with the legs and no feeties, and the hood attached), thats how we're doing my daughter's outfit (horray for functionability, cause its going to be her winter-wear too!)

Last year she went as a little homemade lamb and I was her shepard (it was adorable, I had a little cane, and my cloak and she rode in her baby sling all fluffed out in fluffy sherpa)

Now I completely stumped on how to design my costume to match her's (as I want to go as mommy-leopard...got to enjoy these occasions while I can!), but I dont really want that cheapo slutastic walmart "sexy-leopard" look either... I'd like a skirt and top, and legwarmers (the latter I've already got figured out) but the skirt n top I'm just stumped on... any idea's?

The fabric we're making both costumes from, I've got probably 3 or 4 of these blankets just for my costume alone and can always get more...just so anyone with idea's know's what I'm working with haha!!
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Belly Dancing Poppet Couple (Pic Insane!) on: August 03, 2013 06:38:32 PM
For the poppet/ami swap my partner Smeddley loves belly dancing stuffs so I crafted up an awesome pair of Bunny belly dancing poppets =D I trolled her pinterest for a few, then I trolled pinterest in general for every belly dancing picture I could find for some ideas XD Well I wont torture everyone with to long of an intro =D so here they are!

(Pardon my terribly un-imacculate pond in the background XD)
The lovely pair


Some of the little details on the little bunny girl, her ring (craft wire, some of my japanese glass bead collection, and a random diamond shaped bead I found in my box of belly rings =D) Her little gold bangles and a jade/quartz composite ring...and ofc some of the beading on her little top


Her little zills, which I made using those little shank buttons that you cover with fabric and snap together =D, well the innershank that has that little metal piece that actually gets sewn to w/e your sewing it to (im brain fried pardon my lack of proper terminology haha) xD I snapped that little metal piece off and glued the ribbon in a loop to the top of the inner shank, then glued that (love that e6000!!) to the inside of the outer button and voila!


Her hair, which is extra soft yarn which was unraveled strand by strand till her hair was ultra soft then braided into this cute braid I found on Smeddley's pinterest =D


Her fluffy tail which is a pompom (made from the same fluffy yarn as her hair then brushed out to fluffy perfection), her necklace (the back of it) which is twisted and beaded pink craft wire, and her awesome tattoo's which were done with Sharpie's Stained* fabric pens and colored in with Elmers Painters* fabric pens


Her adorable little toes and her anklet made to match her necklace


A nice close up of her face which is all hand sketched and designed, the Scorpio tattoo on her ear and her painted fingernails =D False eyelashes and e6000 epic combination =D


Okies, here's the guy (I didnt get as many upshots of the guy cause my camera died right before I boxed them up haha)

His face is also hand sketched and painted on, His little collar was modeled after something similar on Smeddley's pinterest =D and his hat was to go with the collar but contrast and match the beading on his pants for a little exotic flare


His little pants and a lovely shot of his bad ass abs =D and ofc a shot of his tattoo's, a cute tribal bunny (ha ha get it!! he's a bunny with a bunny tattoo!!) his harem pants are entirely my design (and what a pain they were!), the beads were done by hand to add flare and color


His cute fluffy tail, made ofc just like his partner (the girl bunny) brushed to fluffiness, his hair however was not seperated by strand so his hair has a different look and texture to it...you can sort of see the side splits in the harem pants which were sequined all around the splits for the awesome look and it finished off the edges nicely...and OFC his wicked wings tattoo's =D


Ahhh there we go, the better side shot to show the side splits in the harem pants as well as his awesomely buff arms and fingers =D I couldnt find any little gold bangles that would fit over his hands, so unfortunately his little wrists are kind of bare =D but his toenails and fingernails were painted an off white just to add detail


All the outfits were entirely made by me, no patterns just random shapes I messed with until I got the look I was pleased with =D The waist bands are elastic so they are form fitting without having snaps or velco to take from the look, and the bands around the bottom of the guys pants are elastic'd as well to give more poof to the center of the pants =D

Another cute shot of the little dancing couple


Hope everyone likes them!!
Comments most welcome!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hand carved wedding bands on: July 17, 2013 05:24:20 AM
Well my husband and I were offically married at the end of May of this year (5-22), but being poor and low on money we couldnt afford wedding bands... (we borrowed my grandmothers rings for our ceremony).....so to have a pair of keepsake bands of our own, I took a nice slice from a 4x4 I had  and hand carved out a nice pair for the two of us.

I used my lovely woodburner to etch our astrological signs onto the surface (virgo & libra) and our wedding date and innitials into the under side =) they still have to be stained and sealed, but for now till payday they are perfect! =^.^=

The frontal shot (left is my ring side 5 1/2, and the right is my husbands ring size 10)


A shot where you can see the underside


And on my finger with my lovely engagement ring =^.^=


Hope everyone likes them as much as I do!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My wedding Yukata on: May 23, 2013 05:20:18 PM
Welll, originally I had planned on waiting a few more years for my wedding....but some family circumstances came up and my mom needed the marriage certificate to be able to use my husband's signature in some paperwork (damn "not being related" bs lol) Sooooo we went ahead with a small ceremony at the courthouse (with a MUCH larger formal ceremony to be in a few years so the whole family can be here) =D

So since I found out the day BEFORE the wedding when we were expected to be at the courthouse ha ha, I pulled an all nighter and made this Yukata for my wedding dress =^.^=

My husband and myself together at a tree right after the ceremony (the courthouse had a lovely garden and fountain for pictures)


Frontal and back views of my Yukata =D




We got a nice downpour right as the wedding ceremony ended =D The walk home in the rain was AWESOME!!


Credit for the pink Obi goes to my mother, she made it in 2hours, and finished just before we had 5min to walk out the door!! We were in quite a rush so I didnt get the obi tied as tightly as I had wanted, but I still think it turned out great for being made over night in a hurry!

Hope everyone likes it as much as I do!! Now just to get the one for the little one made =D
6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES / A lil 50's Poodleskirt Poppet on: May 03, 2013 12:51:07 AM
This little dear was made in my first swap ever in the The Poppet Mini Swap Round 5 My partner Sharalee had a lovely list of things and the 50's poodleskirt girl jumped out as something fun to do! So here she is!

Her entire outfit, her poodle skirt, a tulle pettiskirt, her little saddle shoes, her adorable little teddybear to go with (nope didnt make him though, wish I had!) her aqua pearl necklace (which is fully removeable like her cloths) and ofc her black and white lace bra and panties! Enjoy!!!  (Dont mind the random little fingers and hand's, my darling 2yr baby girl wanted to help =D )

A full frontfacing pic with everything on, her poodle was hand sketched on with a sharpie fabric pen, and entirely my design =D


A better look at the waistband and skirt, all of which I made by guessing out my own patterns


A little pic with her tulle pettiskirt, I cheated to make thing one, I used a heavy quilt binding as the "circle skirt" attached the elastic in where the binding seperated to attach to the quilt, and put bias tape ontop of the elastic to make a nice black waist band to match the poodle skirt. The tulle was fun to work with, and I ended up trimming it down a bit to fit length wise.


Her wee teeny tiny saddle shoes, which I made using the boot tutorial here on craftster but I left off the boot sides and cut off the tongue, and placed eyelets up the sides and laced with leather strips. Colored the white felt with a black Sharpie Staind' fabric pen to try and get the authentic saddle shoe appearance.


The straps on her bra and panties are made with double fold bias tape which was stitched closed, and the stretch lace sewn ontop. Both items are also removeable using sew-on-snaps, so her entire outfit is entirely changeable if Sharalee so wishes =^.^= also makes her easy to wash that way too!


And to end it all off, a nice side shot without her tulle pettiskirt on, plus you can see her little painted fingernails =D Her face has eyelids (which I sort of used the eyelid tute but changed it a bit as I just couldnt figure it out hahah) and real eyelashes (I'm really loving the girl that recomended E6000...now if only I could remember her name!) her makeup is a mix between Sharpie Staind' fabric pen's and my mineral eyeshadow's. Her eyeliner and eyebrows are both fabric staind' pens. Her hair was made with Peaches n Cream yarn with a crocheted cap and wefted hair sewn on (was a pain but it sure looks good!!)


She was my first "boobie" poppet ever, and I think she came out great =D first time with the use of alova suede too! =D Hope you like her!!
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lil Elf Poppet with a lil cupcake monkey friend. (a lil pic heavy hehe) on: March 16, 2013 02:17:38 PM
Ghilie's lil poppet pattern is so addicting! Made this lil elf for my 1 1/2 yr old baby brother, and he carries him everywhere! (Havent seen it since I sent it to him, the two are inseperable hehe!)



I made him a little cupcake monkey friend to match his little bunny eared bunting (in the same awesome blue arctic fleece!)








Arent they adorable! From what my mum has told me, my lil brother has practically assimilated them onto himself, except for bath time, mum refuses to let em take a bath with him!
8  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / (IMG heavy)First attempt at my wedding kimono ended in costume haha! on: March 08, 2013 11:46:54 PM
Ok, lil back story to the madness haha. My wedding plans involve a lot of Japanese themeory, so I wanted to try making a kimono (as my wedding kimono will be in a geogous red silk with gold bamboo and cherry blossom embroidery)... Figured it would give me a good idea as to what I was getting myself into... (note: I'm hand making ALL my wedding attire, including most of the guests haha sew me to the padded walls now!)

Here's the madness I ended up with (I dressed up with all the makeup just for fun, my brother made it more interesting haha)


The Front


The Back


The Side


Few other Random Poses for the fun of it!







Pardon my crappy Iphone picture quality haha!
