1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Portrait of my friend... on: December 14, 2012 02:16:15 PM
So my friend's mate is a really good illustrator and I contacted her behind his back to see if she'd help me out making him a Christmas present.

She drew this awesome picture of him and I embroidered it, all backstitch.

 The beauty of doing a collaboration like this is that I would never choose a picture with such a busy background normally as I don't like doing repetetive stitching but this looks really nice I think, I hope he loves it!

 Was a bit torn on whether to do the entire thing in black but opted for three different colours for the leaves to make it pop!

2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / FACE PAINTS! on: November 10, 2012 06:23:59 AM
Here are some face paints I've done on myself[blue hair] for raves and Halloween parties recently! Hope you like them Smiley


Made this one up...no theme but thought it was like a cool superhero face paint...excuse my weird thumb trick!

Only responsible for the makeup and wound on the left in this one, we were going out for Bristol zombie walk!

3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Futuristic animal ideas needed!! on: October 02, 2012 11:29:04 AM
Hi! I'm going to a rave at the weekend on short notice and the theme is futuristic animals. My current plan is to just stick some sequins onto a zebra face paint as pretty much all I can do on short notice is something I can face paint/add glitter to. I could probably stretch to making ears or something simple also but I have uni all week so nothing too taxing. Any ideas for something a bit more entertaining than a sparkly zebra?

The ideas on the invite said techno shrimp, laser giraffe and things of that ilk, I'm quite fond of a pun so any puns would be awesome!x

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Nude model for my friend NSFW on: March 25, 2012 07:31:49 AM
My friend Vinny wanted an embroidery so I told him to choose his favourite photo of a model. He chose this photo from SG so I stitched it up last night.

I took this amazing sublime stitching pattern and freehanded a monacle and a rose onto it to make it more fancy :3

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dub Deer on: March 22, 2012 06:58:00 AM
Hi! I made this "dub deer" to replace the bob Marley patch I just made and lost[the most satin stitch ever:(].

I wanted something that looked traditional so I took elements from an Aunt Martha pattern I'd seen KittyKill do on a tote bag which looked amazing, and added two freehand speakers.

I like the layout of the final design it's all backstitch with a tiny bit of satin stitch for the eyes and a few french knots for the screws on the speakers. Enjoy!

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / BOB MARLEY PATCH on: March 15, 2012 11:04:54 AM
I've been going over the seams on a plain black hoodie adding red yellow and green stitching to make it stand out, so I thought it was only fitting that I added a Bob Marley patch. Two days in the making and here's the result:
