281  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Roller derby Skirt on: June 06, 2007 06:22:24 PM
Hi everyone ...

The other Day I saw this really cute post from Cerrieocity Kills http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=173400.msg1782253#msg1782253
thees awesome camo and pink aprons for her roller derby team to raffle ... well I thought they were really cool ... 2 days later and I'm at Wal-mart and see a scrap of pink silk and a scrap of pink camo in the bin ....... so i figured why not ...So here is my skirt version ....

It has a cool diagonal zipper ...

I'm proud of my self for actually making the silky trim ...

 And I did a distressed pink camo Skull and cross bones on the back .. inspired by another craftster ( sorry I cant find the post ) or Id credit you ... Embarrassed

Thanks so much for looking .. please let me know what you think ...
and special thanks to Cerriocity kills ... for the inspiration

does it need more embellishments?

Have a great day
282  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / rushed, puffy, lace, gothic.... on: June 04, 2007 12:51:45 PM
Hello everyone  Smiley

First off ... "Yes" I did get my Hair cut ! lol its a big deal for me .. ( first hair cut in 11 years)

Any way on to the sewing ... Here is A quick skirt I made .. using red sheers and a lace curtain panel .. I think it looks kinda Victorian Goth to me ...Its not very practical for everday .. but it makes for good pictures and I'm sure it will come in handy as some sort of costume ...
I used the drawstring method for the rushed part in the middle of the front and back .. so its adjustable too ... Also the Bows are just safety pined on for now .. because I think the shade of red is wrong .. it needs to be closer to the color of the waist band .. But the only red lace I had on hand is what you see.. there is also black lace in the ribbon but its kinda hard to See against the  black... Any way let me know what you think ...

Oh yeah sorry for the excess of pics .. Me and my Auto Timer had a fun fake Photo Shoot today lol Cheesy

close up of the rushing detail

here it is on my dress form .. so you can see the bottom better

oh and hte shirt Im wearing is not the one I intended to .. the other one is way cuter but I couldnt find it ....

Thanks so much for looking
As always Have a great night
283  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / HULK recon on: May 29, 2007 01:35:52 PM
Hi ,
 This is  recon a did a few years ago actually .. but I never have posted it for some reason... even though it is one of my very favorite shirts .. Well I was wearing it the other day and decided to get a few pics...this shirt is extra cool to me because it was originally given too me by the really cool five year old son of one of my best friends .. and now they moved and i hardly ever get to see him  Cry

any way I also love it cuz it gives the illusion of abs !

and me doing my famous Hulk pose that I do all day long everytime I pass a mirror when I'm wearing this lol

like I'm riping outta the shirt lol

thanks for looking

Have a great day

284  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / little Jungle corset skirt on: May 29, 2007 12:59:44 PM
Hello ...
 Here is a  very very short .. riskay skirt I made outta some really cool multi animal print curtains I found at a rummage sale ..any way ... Sadly Sad I am way to pale to pull it off... I think it would look so great on a dark chocolate or mocha skin tone ... but on me you can hardly see the fish net trim at the bottom ....

Anyway .. here it is .. although Ill prolly never wear it .. oh the top i have on with it isn't the greatest either

Oh know its  quite skimpy .. but it wasnt meant for " public " wear ...

that being said Id love openions

Have a great day

and the snapp closure ...on the side ..

Thanks so much for looking and excusing my Corny joke ... Wink
 Have a great day
286  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / painting from 10 th grade ... on: May 24, 2007 01:35:25 PM

This painting isn't that great ... but its the only painting Iv done that I actually have in my hose .. my Mom takes most of them... any way .. I made this years ago ... in 9th or 10th grade .. and it actually got entered by the art teacher into a contest ( didint win ) but I was pleased it was even entered considering at the time it was in a white frame and I hated they way the whole painting looked ...

But several years later I tore the frame off and spray painted it black and wa la .. I all of the sudden could stand it ... the frame is now in terrible disarray and needs a new one .. just do to its age in general .. but My friend Rusty seems to really love  it and always remarks on it .. so i hope some one else likes it too....

its a photo of the painting sorry... Embarrassed

thanks so so much for looking
 Have a great night

Oh yeah its a shoe .. we had to do a cubist style painting of one of several objects the teacher had out on a table ....
287  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Rodney , Drew this car ...( color along) on: May 24, 2007 11:34:39 AM
Hello ,
  I gotta tell you guys My boyfriend and is sister are both amazing artists .. they can look at anything and draw it or draw out of their heads... but neither one of them will ever display their works  Huh ... but ... I found one of Rodney's drawings in my folder .. so I'm posting it .. I'm sure he wont mind that much ( especially if he gets good feed
back )

 He drew this car by looking at a itty bitty cartoon image of the same car on a hot wheels package ...I think it looks great .. but he is to picky and abandoned it without coloring it ...
 any way here it is ...

 thanks for looking
I will try and get him to post some more of his drawings .. sometime...
Have a great day

P.s. check out shydeana;s colored version .. and feel free to add your own.....

289  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I love ! aluminum can ashtrays ( thanks Nykole) on: May 21, 2007 06:53:42 PM
Hi everyone .. I saw some awesome Arizona green tea ashtrays..http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=67230
the other day posted By Nykole6412.. I thought it was a great idea and them my mom gave me 36 Arizona teas .. so obviously it was a sign for me to make some .. Ive been experimenting with a few variations .. Tell me what you think ....

I made the second one a bit deeper

This one I tried using 16 strips instead of 12 or 8
its a more open starry effect

And this one I made using 2 cans 1 Arizona tea and 1 Natural light can .. the Natty can is much shorter so it looks alot different than the others , but I really like it ! ( its my first attempt ) so .. its a lil rough

I'm trying all the variations , because I need as many as possible , as soon as my cousin saw them she decided she needed an out door mobil/wind chime and from them .. so ill post final pics of that when we accomplish it  Wink

As always thats for taking time to look ,

 Have great night

 Any more Ideas for cool can ornaments PLEASE POST !

edit : here are a few more...
Im addicted to makiing theese now ..

290  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gold corset ! on: May 14, 2007 06:19:01 PM
Hi everyone ,

       Well Iv obviously been corset crazy for a while ... But this is definitely the nicest and most "Dressy " one Ive made so far..
The fabric is a really cool " possibly brocade " kinda material that is shiny but very sturdy .. and has an embroidered detail ( I got * yards at a rummage sale  Grin) it is brown but from certain angles it has a lot of gold and even a touch of red ..the inside is lined with yellow flannel . it has 4 bones in each side of the back ( I wanna do a fully boned , but I think I will need a different pattern to do that )and the most challenging part by far was making my own piping ! talk about a totall nightmare ...I couldn't find gold piping anywear so i used red piping and sewed some silky gold fabric from an old scarf around it ..very tedious work .. but worth it I think ...so here it is ...

not the best lacing job lol .. but we were in a hurry

and I even patched my pants to match ! Wink

I was going to add straps , but decided against it for now .. because i thought they looked a lil to Spartanish or like some wierd viking super hero ..lol

Please let me know what you think Cheesy

as always thanks for looking and have a great day
