Thanks to both of you. Now all I need is enough time off work to call.

So is this a cut mohawk or just an inside out french braid? (great idea. I'd tease the strands before braiding to make it poufier.)

It was a regular mohawk french braided. I have since had to cut it off for job related reasons and also that I felt like growing it all out. The inside out french braid idea is a really nifty alternative for when my hair gets long again.

Your sketch is definitely leaning towards punk loli  rather than goth loli.  That being said you'd probly be okay with combat boots or other western goth footwear (as long as it isn't really fetish-y) in lieu of mary janes. Avoid shiny fabrics and definitely do some research into the fashion if you're wanting to get into it seriously. Personally I think if you can't afford to treat yourself to spendy lace it's probly better to go with ruffles.

Here's a site I found to be very informative:

here's a tut on how to mod a regular collared shirt. I believe she did this all by hand.

here's a couple for bloomers

for skirts:

you can even simplify that more by using a long rectangle instead of an arc. For a very simple petticoat you can do two to four layers of tulle with a layer of muslin or broadcloth underneath to protect your legs from the scritchy tulle. Use the heavier tulle for your petti since it has better poof.
Also for the second shorter gathered skirt you can make a second skirt that's half as long as the first and attach it to the same waistband as the longer skirt then pin up the center.

here's a more complicated petticoat tutorial:

You won't get a good purple out of koolaid. The purple always turns out gray.

You also won't get a very bright purple without bleaching and I wouldn't use Manic Panic for streaks on account of how badly it bleeds. I find it also burns my scalp so I don't use it anyways.

Before I started bleaching my hair I used to colour it with markers and bingo daubers. Both are inexpensive and will wash out in about a week.
25  CANADA / Ontario / Sewing Machine Repair in Toronto? on: August 28, 2009 09:32:39 PM
What's the best place Downtown Toronto to take an old Singer sewing machine to get repaired and tuned up? My machine is in need of a good fixing. She's circa early 60's.

Amber Sweet is addicted to the knife ;]

The first time I saw Repo was a double feature with RHPS and both were shadowcast. I think if the shadowcast hand't been so outrageous I wouldn't love the movie quite so much.

yay! that sounds amazing! i've yet to see a shadow cast for either film, and its great to hear about RHPS and Repo casts getting along (there's a lot of animosity between the two factions, at least online).

They weren't quite getting along. It was a bit of a showdown to see who was better and you supported your faction by buying their aptly named theme drinks. Zydrate for Repo and the Hymen Buster for RHPS. They do a shadow cats once every couple months if you're ever in Toronto.

Good to know also. There's something majorly up with the motor now. It keeps binding and running really slowly. I think some old gook got caught somewhere and it needs to be fully taken apart.

It's button style. The new spring seems to have worked. The machine is staying off now when plugged in, but now something inside the machine itself is grinding. I hope I didn't break anything when oiling it  Undecided
