1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Marie Antoinette is where it's AT! on: November 01, 2006 02:45:13 PM
Cross-posted in Halloween album!
For Halloween, I was Marie Antoinette!

Found an old size 8 prom dress, took it in to a size 0, cut and hemmed it, added extra tulle in a bubble hem to add modernity and fullness, made and attached the ribbon/ rhinestone button detailing by, and added the Swarovski crystal beads around the top and in the bodice/ribbon detailing by hand.  Tiara and all extra jewelry was bought.
Hope you all liked!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I need minidress help. on: October 10, 2006 06:47:46 PM
I want to wear a bohemian minidress to my Winter Ball.  However, said minidresses that are kind of what I want are enormously expensive.  Therefore, I plan to MAKE one!  I'd like one with sleeves, if that's an option.  Does anyone know if there are any patterns I could use?
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Marie Antoinette hair? on: September 10, 2006 07:07:50 PM
I'm making a mini-crini marie antoinette dress for Halloween, and I need the hair to go with it (of course!).  So, question is, how do I do it?  If anyone can link me to a good site I can work off of, that would be great.  Thanks!

I'd love to wear a Marie Antoinette-style mini-crini for Halloween.  Problem is, I don't know how to make one.
Any ideas?
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Assembling a Rasterbator picture on: July 11, 2006 04:09:08 PM
Hi, I just made a 24-page Rasterbation and I have no idea how to assemble it.  Any hints?  Do I put the pages together column by column, row by row, what?
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Pinup girl hair? on: May 08, 2006 06:00:25 PM
I've got this retro theme going for prom, and it's all planned out except for my hair.  I really want to look exactly like a pinup, and I just don't know what kind of hair to do.  My hair's long, about halfway down my back, and it's very thin and pin-straight, no bangs.  Can someone point me in the direction of pinup-girl hairdos?  I'm open to pretty much anything.  Thank you!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Enamel or somehting like it? on: March 26, 2006 03:19:04 PM
As my first commission, I've been set out to make a clarinet pin, and I've got this nifty idea involving silver sheet and wire and black enamel.  But, I have noooo idea how enamel works, or how much it costs!  Can someone point me in the right direction, or tell me about an alternative to enamel that is less expensive/difficult to work with?  Thanks!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Rasterbator ink use question... on: December 14, 2005 05:15:39 PM
How much ink would a rasterbated image take?  I reallllly want an Audrey Hepburn image for my door, but I'd rather find out how much ink it'll take first.  Does anyone who's done Rasterbation before know how much ink it takes?
Thanks!
9  COOKING / Dessert / A boquet of chocolate bars!!! tutorial added! on: October 23, 2005 07:06:46 PM
So my boyfriend had a sold-out show at this huge theatre, and to celebrate I decided to get him flowers, and then I realized that was expensive and not at all original.  So I thought, what's better than a dozen flowers?  A boquet of his favorite locally made chocolate peanut butter bars that LOOKS like a boquet of flowers!
Ingredients:
-A dozen chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
-A dozen kebob skewers
-A bunch of silk flowers, taken off a lei
-Superglue
-Scotch tape
This is a really easy project.  I just bought a dozen chocolate bars, and then glued silk flowers that I took off a lei (flat is better to glue and pack into a boquet in my opinion) to each bar (WHICH IS STILL IN ITS WRAPPER), about seven or eight flowers a bar.  While I was waiting for that to dry, I painted a dozen kebob skewers green.  Once both mini-projects dried, I taped the kebob skewers to the chocolate bar wrappers.  Then, I pulled the skewers out, squirted glue into the hole where the skewer was, and re-inserted the skewer.  That way, it never moves.  Wait for everything to dry, and voila, a beeeautiful boquet! I simply tied it with gold ribbon, as you can see.

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first stencil! on: October 23, 2005 04:59:07 PM
For Halloween, I'm going as a ska-style pirate, so I figured, "How better to show I'm a pirate than stencilling a skull and crossbones onto a shirt!"  So this is what I did.
I printed out the skull and crossbones onto a piece of paper, and taped the paper onto a wifebeater.  Then, I sprayed, using some black matte spraypaint:

Then, I waited for it to dry, and this is what it came out as:

and it's ready for its closeup, Mr. DeMille:

I liked the bridges (and I'm too lazy to fix them Tongue) so I'm keeping them.  I like how it went outside the stencil- it gives it a really fun feel, in my opinion- although I wish it hadn't done it so much.
However, I'd really love some critiques, comments, tips on how to improve, etc etc....  Thanks!
