241  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Questions About Hairstyles! on: May 02, 2007 08:28:16 AM
Underside for sure, but make sure to go all the way around; do the bottom layer of your sides. It'll look awesome.

I recommend going to the beauty supply and picking up a container of cholesterol, which you'll find in this ethnic section of the store. Its a chemical blocker that you should also use on your skin. I'd pin up the sections of your hair that you aren't coloring and clip them securely, and then coat the root area of the part you dont plan on coloring with the cholesterol. It'll help keep the flyaways out of the way, and block any unwanted color from penetrating your hair.

I would then take some of this lovely cholesterol and apply it along the nape of your neck, and on your ears. Anywhere where this color might find skin (which is everywhere.) It might not be a horrible idea to actually place saran wrap on your neck to make sure the color stays on your scalp, and not your skin. The cholesterol will make the saran wrap stick to your skin.

Apply the color with a tint brush in very thin horizontal sections, making sure that you coat it thoroughly. Obviously, a friend comes in handy here. After you've colored all od the section that you want, place yet another layer of saran wrap over the hair, just to make sure you dont end up with purple doorways (for some reason at the salon, there is forever color stains on the doorways. I do not know why...it just happens.)

Thanks Cheera!  I don't get to do it today now though Sad because fiance who was going to do it is verrrrry sick.  It especially sucks because I can't go visit my Grandpa now either because he's in the hospital after heart surgery.  But I will follow your steps once I get to do it!
242  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pencil skirt from a pillowcase on: May 01, 2007 10:01:42 PM

Sorry for the cruddy picture, the fiance was still out of town so the camera is balanced on the balcony rail.  Anyway, this was a 69 cent vintage pillowcase.

First I cut off the closed end, then I basically turned half the pillowcase to the inside to get it the length I wanted, with the sham end as the bottom, since it had cute lace, and the fold at the top forming the waistband and leaving the excess folded down inside to make a lining.  I opened up the side seam and inserted a zipper between the "lining" and outside in that seam, then I put the skirt on inside out and pinned four darts into the skirt to taper up to the waist, two in the front at the pelvic bones and two in the back.  Sewed them up, and voila!  Skirt for just over $2 CAD!

OK I need to decide how to dye my hair - in this picture you can see what the cut looks like now. I have some bright purple dye, and I'm trying to decide if I should do the underside of my hair, or do chunks through it.  What do you think?  And how would you go about doing it?

lol.  Sorry, druses are rather complicated.  There really isn't a way to simplify it down any further, which is crazy.  I think it's awesome that you knew the real word for it anyway!  I only just really learned about druses in my 4th year Gemology class.  (Best Class Ever)

A druse is a crystal growth pattern - ie a pattern in which groups of crystals can grow.  It usually consists of prismatic or acicular (needle-like) crystals clustered together and protruding from a rock face into a space in the rock (either a vein or vug - somewhat spherical gap).  They only have one naturally terminated end, that is one crystal-shaped end, since the other end is flat against the rock face.

Phew!  Sorry, Geology major in the midst of exams...

Very unique!  I have some beautiful tiny amethyst druses that I collected myself Cheesy that would likely make good pendants.  I might have to try this sometime.

Hrm.  I both skinny and curvy (very hourglass shaped but slim) and I also look preggers in these (or about 6).  I love them, but I think it's the fact that they fall from the breasts to hips with no waist definition.  Too bad though cause I think they can be really cute!

Yes Canadians use Christmas Crackers too Smiley  I love them, except the bang they make when you pull them apart - always scared me.  This Christmas when my fiance was at his parent's house, he and his brother took the poppers out of the crackers, tied them together, and lit them on fire.  Quite the bang, apparently!

Though personally I really would love to get ahold of some of the wizard crackers from the Harry Potter books.  They sound marvelous!

Me too me too!  I love the sockies Cheesy  And they're one of the only sock patterns I've ever thought of turning into flip-flop socks, JUST so as everyone can appreciate the wonderful buttons I'm going to find for them Smiley

Good job!
