1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Curly girl with an a-line, can it be done? on: November 19, 2005 09:32:25 PM
Hello darlings!

I need some help, advice, suggestions, a yes or no, etc...

I'm tired of my boring, dark brown, curly, layered hair.

I'm thinking a nice drastic a-line and a lovely V-bang.

However, is that even possible for the type of hair I have?

Not to mention, my forehead measures two inches from my hairline to my brow.

So, I'm pretty sure that it's possible that I can get the bangs, and I read a post from someone on here that they had a small forehead and had more of a U-bang than V-bang.

But would it look right on me?

I have a fat head, so I don't know.
Back to the a-line...

I'm thinking pretty drastic if I can do it.

The longest part would hit either in the middle or below my chest, and the shortest would be a bit of a layer mid-ear, which of course would be fluffed out.

Is it possible for a curly and thick haired, not to mention fat headed girl like me to achieve this look?

Would it look superbly-awesome if I had this cut and dyed two pieces in the front or the whole head a forest green color?

Would the hairstyle look alright if I perhaps... 'forgot' to straighten it?

And even if it would work...

Would I actually look awesomely awesome sporting it?



^Fat head.



^Fatter head



^Less fat because the Brillo pad is covering it.



^Because it's cool?

...

And for some well deserved comical relief, I bring you....



^ EZ START, donkey in disguise!

So...

Help?

Suggestions?

Complaints?

Anything?

Thank you for your time. =)

P.S. Sorry for the outrageously large pictures, my computer is not being very cooperative today.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Crossed with blanket. O.o on: August 21, 2005 05:43:58 PM
I recently bought a book that has a ton of suggestions for different projects to dress up a room with. One of the projects is called the Hammock Quilt. It's held together with iron on mending tape.



However, I'm afraid that something that gets so much use as a blanket would fall apart. What I want to know is, how would I be able to attach the crosses on to the blanket without using iron on mending tape? Oh, and I really don't feel like sewing them on.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Garage princess. on: August 12, 2005 06:16:22 PM
Well, this Halloween I've decided to be a "garage princess." I will make an ankle length gown out of large black trash bags, mop heads, red rags, black wire hangers, and other things that I feel the need to use. I will also be making a crown out of nails and plastic army men. (I was very inspired after those contest entries.) I might also be making wings out of wire hangers and plastic wrap. I'm not worried about the price. I have already bought most of my materials, it came out under $20.00. (Including a large bag of ginger snaps.) Wait... Oh snap... I forgot my cartoon bandaids. I'll have to go buy a few boxes tomorrow. Anyhow... I just figured I'd tell all of you because I am SOO excited! I ADORE Halloween. Well, that's about it. Any input?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Bedroom-HELP! (PICTURE HEAVY) on: July 31, 2005 02:25:21 PM
I'm redoing my bedroom. The style I'm going for will be a mix of the bedroom styles between 1880 and 1950. No poodle skirts, just a girlie and lacy room. However, my favorite colors are navy blue, burgundy, dark raspberry, grayish purple, taupe, grayish blue, and rich dark browns. My favorite shades are dark gray- black. (No white though.) My headboard will be painted an antique brass color. Think of a mix between brass and iron. I have my rug, which you will see below, and that's about it. I get sick of wall colors fast, so it can't be very plain. My father doesn't know how to put up wallpaper, so that's out of the question. (I wanted red and white pinstriped wallpaper.) I have a few things that I found online that I like below as well.

Here is my bedroom now. (please ignore the huge mess.)





















Now here are a few things I have to work off of...

1) Artwork. (need more of.)





2) Rug (Colors in rug: grayish purple, black, two shades of sage, off-white, burgundy, dark pink, olive green, medium reddish brown, and terracotta.



I was thinking of painting my room the second darkest purple seen above, but I don't think I will now.



These are things I saw online that I hope to include in my room. (I will most likely be getting the curtains.)



(Does anyone know where I can get a scalloped edged comforter like that?)




So, that's about it. Can anyone suggest some websites that I can look at for ideas of things to put into my bedroom? By the way, I have two beds and a mattress. (One full, two twins.) So I would need something for the bed in the corner. It's my couch bed which holds my junk at the moment. That's another thing, I need storage! I only have the use of one closet, my family took over the other. My bedroom is rather large, so I can fit a few extra things. I also have a black computer desk, I think we will be painting the furniture black. I plan on replacing the molding with non-finished wooden molding and painting that black.

Anyhow, help? ideas for storage, paint colors, bedding, furniture set up, etc. It's all welcome.





5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! on: May 30, 2005 02:32:15 PM
Alright, I'm in a bit of trouble here, and I need your expertise to get me out of it.

I have a formal dance coming up this Friday, and I am making my gown for it. I've had everything to make it for a few months now, but I have been too busy to get it done. Now, I have enough free time to work on it. I have most of the main part done, the bodice. But being the idiot I am, I measured the top of it wrong, and it will now have a two inch gap. Unfortunately, I cannot just add on a piece of fabric, I put two sheets of batting in between. What am I to do? I was going to use a zipper for the closing, but now that won't work. I can't make a decent button hole for my life, so that is also out of the question. Any ideas? I have about 20 hours to get this done, and I'll work on the skirt in between. However, I need help! Any suggestions?
