22  The Haunted Coffin Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by not2old4glitter on: October 31, 2006 12:58:03 AM
Yay it's after midnight so it's officially Halloween!  Grin
Here's my entry for the  challenge, it's a  coffin purse with more secret compartments than a haunted house.
Here is  a long view of it

and here is a closeup of the front, it's black velvet with 5 different kinds of studs, including a large skull stud

it took me over an hour just setting all the studs by hand.

Here is the back, the back and sides are black denim

the back has  a patch pocket trimmed in more studs (the dungeon), and a zippered pocket lined with bat print fabric. (there's bats in the belfry!)

The front has a secret too, it's a double front that zips open to a full-length pocket.

The main compartment is  lined with 2 kinds of skull prints, and there is a patch pocket and a zippered pocket inside

be careful about opening the pocket though, because a big spider's living inside!

This bag took a ridiculous amount of time. I've seen coffin bags before so I know it's not that original, but I have never seen one with as many details as this.  Plus it's  big enough for a vampire doll  to sleep in it.

25  really scary papier mache mask in Halloween Costumes by not2old4glitter on: October 15, 2006 02:20:07 PM

I made this mask many years ago in college, in a class for theater prop making. It's papier mache but it's very sturdy and rigid. It was made on a plaster life cast of my face, which I then built up modelling clay over to make the shape I wanted. Then the papier mache was applied to the clay. It's quite a few layers and there are also a few layers of cheesecloth in there for strength.

It was inspired by some demons in a Heironymous Bosch painting. The teeth are cast resin with glitter in them, and the eyes have window screen over them so I can see out but you can't see my eyes. The whiskers are nylon strands unravelled from some nylon rope and spray painted silver.

27  pink, black and white tweed in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by not2old4glitter on: October 11, 2006 01:12:51 AM
I love this color combination right now. In fact I will only wear pink if it's with black.

this tweed/plaid is so nice up close, it's really textural and has little irridescent sparkly bits woven in  Grin

it's trimmed with black faux-suede and the handle is also black faux-suede

the lining  is really cute too, it reminds me of Paris in the 50's (this is the bag inside out)

28  Re: Halloween House Decorations-- everyone post your pictures / share ideas in Halloween Decor and Parties by not2old4glitter on: October 10, 2006 05:54:24 PM
here is your photo gallery

and you don't have to write anything out again, you can just copy and paste from the old posts or edit them and just fix the image urls


neighborhood boy and caution tape around the front of the house.


little ghosts hanging from the front trees.


if you look closely enough, above the bright ladder you can see our bats. we made the stand out of plumbing pipes, i think, that we spray painted black so they wouldnt stand out so much in the dark. it had two "arms" that the bats hung off of and when we turned them on, their eyes lit up and they made noise and flew in little circles.


i made this myself. its a styrofoam head wrapped in toilet paper. i stabbed a knife in there and then poured "blood" (a mix of corn syrup, red and green food color) by it for the wound. stuck it in a cape. hung it from a noose. cool, huh?


you can see the blood better here. oh yea and there's a little skeleton man in the ground.
skeleton from the window
giant 3-foot spider on his web. oh and by the bottom is one of the many sets of blinky eyes we had in the bushes and windows.

some fog from our fog machine. i dont have a picture but we made a fog cooler out of and old plastic box. we cut a ihole in either side ofthat and attached a bendy-tube with holes bunched in it to let fog out to one and the opening of the fog machine to the other. filled the box with ice, i think, maybe dry ice. the fog would go through it and cool (so it'd stay low to the ground) and then through the long tube so that it wouldnt all be coming out of one place. i hope that makes sense. ? Oh man, i wonder what my dad would say if he knew i was leaking all his secrets!!  Lips sealed
my jackolanterns
lit up
and just for kicks, thats me in costume with my glow in the dark eye makeup, pink hair spray, devil horns, and boa. woot!  Grin

so ok, now that you can see them, you like!??!

I can't find where these ones go

29  big paisley squares quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by not2old4glitter on: October 07, 2006 01:06:46 AM
This is a quilt I made back in the 1980's, when I worked at a fabric showroom for the trade only. (interior designers) We didn't have the actual bolts of fabric in the showroom, just small samples. Designers would check out the samples to show to their clients. The larger the pattern repeat, the larger the sample pieces were, but never a full yard. When fabrics were discontinued, I would sometimes take home the old samples. So I ended up with a lot of small pieces of fabric. Some of them were crazy expensive if you'd wanted to buy a full yard. I seemed to collect a lot of paisleys, so I put them all together in a very hippie looking quilt. The piecing is very simple but I wanted the patterns to show, they are large scale prints so the squares are about 10"x10". Small intricate piecing would not have worked with these fabrics, and I don't really have the patience or skill for it anyway! Embarrassed
it's got a small flannel print on the back and is very thick, and is just quilted with yarn tacks at the intersection of each square.
so anyway here is my  paisley quilt

(I also made all the pillows shown)

so I made a handful of these keychains tonight, they were pretty quick and didn't cost much in materials
there's silver star studs on them, moons would have been better for my shop name but I don't have any moon studs, so stars are kind of in the same theme.
