Ok, so my computer's hard drive melted.... twice. I finally got a new one put into this laptop, and I am back! I have some new customs to share. I must say, it is very awesome to see customs on craftster! I have been customizing for about three years now, and for a while, didn't really think to post them here silly me.
Anyhow, the first two are based off of elements from the 80's My Little Pony movie. The purple stuff is 'smooze' which is this goo that the witches sent after the ponies. The rainbow is the Rainbow of Light which was the ponies' magical defence against bad guys and the like.
Hey guys, I have not seen one of these in ages.... is it because I simply am not looking hard enough? or am being very unobservant in my daily life?
I would love to gather a list of locations where these photo booths still exist, in malls, cities, etcetera.... this might be a good thread for people to refer back to in the future if we can get a good list going!
Well it's been a while since my last post, but oh well.... here is a new custom.
She is based off of the 'smooze' from the 80's My Little Pony Movie ... it was recently released on DVD, and is pretty cheap.... ten bucks is a good price for some reminiscing! Anyhow, she was fully re-haired, and her smooze bits have been sculpted by sculpy, painted with acrylics, and sealed with a high gloss sealer to make them seem oozy... here are a few quick pics:
I've been making these for about a year and a half, and with the recent swap (that I sadly could not participate in!) it dawned on me that maybe I should share! The darth maul pony is my fave that I've seen on here so far!
So, here they are - they are made from various things, sculpy, apoxie sculpt, flatback crystals, craft wire, and katsilk hair - the re-hairing took FOREVER on the large one. But I think it was worth it! I hope you all like them, I will be trying my hand at selling them on eBay, if I get the courage up to do so....
Anyone know what I am talking about here? This is what I have been told it is called, but I am not positive. I have been searching for this stuff for a while, it is essentially a 'papery' material that is irridescant on one side, and sort of... plain, woven, rough cotton ( > ) material on the other side. It comes in various colours.
For kids of the 80's, rainbow brite's dress was made out of this (the shiny blue stuff), and various she-ra dolls had things made out of this, like she-ra and frosta's cape. Anyhow, I have been looking and looking for this stuff, does anyone know of a store that has it in stock? Most fabric stores stare at me blankly (well, the staff, not the actual stores ) and know nothing about this stuff...
Hi all - I dont live in New York. I'm from Vancouver, Canada. Im looking for a bit of a favor from a kind Craftster
there was recently a big exhibition in New York, called The Pony Project. Hasbro teamed up with some fairly well-known artists and had them decorate giant versions of My Little Ponies, all for charity and such. It looks like it was a fantastic show. Anyways, at the show, in the gift shop, they are selling black my little ponies for 22 dollars US. I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to get my hands on one of these. I'm a bit of a pony collector you see.
Now, Im going to be honest because I dont want to be blamed for trying to con someone. These ponies are selling for upwards of 60 bucks on ebay, but I really can't afford to pay that type of money, especially after shipping and currency conversion. So I'm really hoping that someone is feeling generous enough to help me out. I would be willing to pay 32 US, as I understand that most people would not want to randomly just do this for a stranger for nothing to show. I can pay with existing funds in my paypal account. and you could pick up more than one pony for yourself, too, with the knowledge that you could make some money off of them on ebay.
er, so yeah, there you have it. my email address is arksiell at hotmail dot com. I'm hoping that someone out there is feeling kind - and I would be more than happy to help locate an item for you that you may be having a hard time finding in stores in your area, if my area does in fact have it.
I hope that this is a suitable place for a query like this! I currently live in maple ridge/coquitlam (my place with the bf/my parents place that I still accidentally call home) there is a dollar store near me that sells felt at 2 pieces for a buck. they look to be what I would imagine as standard felt squares, say 12 inches by 6 inches. I have yet to get myself to michaels to compare, but I am wondering, for the lowermainland, is this a decent price for felt? they have a ton of colours!
let me know if you can folks, and thanks for the info in advance! Cyn
quick question, does anyone know if you can use the rubber ikea ice cube trays as chocolate molds? I want to make a bunch of heart shaped chocolates for an engagement party, and am hoping that I can use my ikea molds, but I dont want to ruin them. since they are ice cube trays I am sure that they are 'foodsafe' - so my main concern is whether they can handle warm/hot chocolate being poured into them~
