11  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Yes, I'm a hobbit on: July 14, 2013 01:23:55 PM
We have an event over here, called "medieval fantasy spectacle" so it's okay to show up in nonauthentic, purely fantasy clothing. Wink
I decided to go as a hobbit woman - exactly last monday I decided it. So I just had to work from stash which ended a bit outside of my color-comfort-zone, so to speak. Well, heck, I'm supposed to be something totally different anyway.
I'm lacking my apron in this pic (borrowed one from my daughter and still had to get it spotless) and also missing the hair on my foot, but this got fixed (I own a LOT of faux fur scraps AND mastix).
So, brace yourselfes and meet - the hobbit!

12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Digital painting - Cutie Pie on: May 17, 2013 01:12:19 PM
I really don't know why, but this little girl immediately started her life called "Cutie Pie". As for the moment, she's just into some beach adventures and not always the luckiest of girls, but, hey, at least she's got a name!
Cheesy

This one's still in progress, but I'll show you nevertheless:

in a viewable size. I *did* mention I'm mother to three girls aged (now) 11, 10 and 8 years?
And besides having a full bed to my own I like doing digital doodles. Cheesy

14  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / This is Raichu on: April 21, 2013 11:52:08 PM
My daughter went to a pokemon tour day last year and happened to tell me two weeks in advance she still needed a costume.
Should I be flattered or bursting in anger? TWO WEEKS! No pattern, no fabric and naturally not the slightest idea who this Raichu may be. Well, the last was fixed by my daughter, telling me over and over it's the last evolved stage of Pikachu.
She went together with a friend of hers being Pikachu - and hey, they won fourth place having about 60 competitors! Seems I did *something* right. Smiley
I'll stop talking now and give you the pics:

Front. She's looking through the mouth - I sewed black tulle in two layers into it. She had quite a good view and could breathe easily this way. Me personally, I hate it when you start breathing your own warm, wet exhalations. Yuck.

Back - I fixed the tail with nylon cord and a safety pin so it could swing but not be stepped upon.

Sideview

Everybody absolutely LOVED her! Wherever she went, people cuddled her and wanted to take pics.

Absolutely able to compete, isn't it? She could have been a little more stuffed up, but I remember the faces of the actors wearing the original costumes - they were all puffy and sweaty, even on this not-so-warm-day. My daughters belly just holds it form due to wires and reeds - no extra stuffing (and she's a thin little fishy).
Oh, and I made the hands with a slit to get your own fingers out to handle something. For further convenience (especially bathrooms) I made the costume being three parts: trousers, body with crotch closure, head. Everything is stiffened up with wires and/or reeds (like the ones you use for baskets), the legs are stuffed with styrofoam(?) like you find in cheap pillows.

Hope you enjoy,
Salad
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Woven or braided cords - you decide on: April 13, 2013 11:54:57 AM
Last year I spent a lot of time with braiding, weaving or whatever you call it when there are more than five cords in your hands.
Well, I ended up with some nice bands I want to introduce to you:




Hope you like them as much as I do.

16  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Burgundian velvet dress on: April 06, 2013 11:52:15 AM
So I had this gorgeous cotton velvet lying around and totally had to do an awesome medieval dress with it.
Alas, it was not enough velvet to dress me... so my second daughter had to bear that burden. But even for her, the fabric STILL was not long enough - so okay, I remember having that vintage curtain fabric lying elsewhere, totally in-time with inwoven fleur-de-lys pattern... here you go, baby:

Now I'm sooooo jealous.

And I have an urge for tulips.
Luckily, I can have as many as I want whenever I want them.

Watercolor pencil with ball pen on paper, ca. 20 cm * 10 cm.

18  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / No tangled mess on: March 30, 2013 01:51:16 PM
So my best friend has a daughter, too, but can't sew. We went shopping together, and she ended up with a silky-shiny polyester two shades of violetpurplerosesomething. Me, I ended up with a good friend asking me if I could sew her daughter a nice costume.
Guess I could and wanted to do a Rapunzel-themed costume anyway. So here I proudly present to you Miss Rapunzel:

Seems we got here a little early cause she's still working on the embroidery on her skirt. Well, never mind, that's taken care of.

19  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / In fact, I'm more into portraiture... on: March 30, 2013 01:15:51 PM
...as you can see.

These are acrylics on canvas, app. 30 cm x 40 cm.

I also do them in blacknwhite (or, more correctly, in grayscale).
But sometimes I go all over the top and use oilpastels just the way I like to!
 


Yayyyy colorssssss!


Did I mention I love colors?

Hi,
I'm a mother of three and painting, sewing and crafting in my free... ah, make that in my few spare moments time.
I love painting in oil, and I love flowers. So I made these, all on canvas, 50 cm by 70 cm:












Happy crafting,
Salad
