1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cactuar Plushie Purse on: August 05, 2008 07:24:42 PM
So for the second year in a row, I am dressing up as Lulu from Final Fantasy X for a convention. Last year I made myself a green felt cactuar plushie purse, which even at the time, I found rather ugly. I hate the way felt feels, and I didn't even get to do any nice details with it, due to lack of time, and over a hundred dollars on the costume already...

So today I got out the green plush fabric remnant I bought last year after the convention, and made a brand new cactuar purse, and other than the fact that he's darker than he should be, I think he is a million times better than the previous one and it makes me very happy in the face.

The lines on him are just yarn, sewn on with thread, and the face bits are felt. Only his arms and legs have any filling in them. The body is left empty for maximum stuff puttage.

In the back is a zipper, and I can fit a minimum of a DS lite, my phone, a washcloth, a wallet, and a camera or ipod touch. I'll definitely be able to shove a lipstick and a thing of eyeshadow in there for emergency makeup at the convention.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Melted bead Question on: October 28, 2007 08:11:46 AM
I've been looking at a lot of melted bead projects, and I was wondering if anybody has mixed the melted beads up (after they are melted stirring them with a spoon or something). I'm looking to melt beads into a christmas ball, and having some clear and red or clear and blue to make it look a bit like a fire ball or an ice ball, and I would like it to look more whispy than the general spotted effect of melted beads.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Harry Potter Hufflepuff pleated skirt with link to Tutorial on: July 24, 2007 05:17:00 PM

I made a Hufflepuff skirt for the Deathly Hallows release!
And, instructables.com made a contest for anything Harry Potter related...
So, not only is this my first instructable, but also, it is my first tutorial that I have posted on craftster. Everything else I just kinda posted a pic and that was it.

so... click here for the tute!
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Battle Royale cosplay... on: August 01, 2006 04:11:33 PM
My friend asked me to do Battle Royale cosplay with her, and I finally got up and made my costume. I don't feel like putting buttons on it. Seriously, I don't trust my sewing machine anymore. And I can't find plain tan buttons anywhere! (not joann's, not hancock, not michaels, not walmart! gah!)

But, this took me like... 2 weeks to make I guess. Actually, more like one week broken up into parts. What I like best is the skirt. I like the outfit because I can just take away the gun and neck thing and wear it anywhere.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Silly hats Only! on: August 01, 2006 02:08:50 PM
So me and my friends are going to dress up at Otakon for a day wearing silly hats...

I made mine with this fabric remnant I got at Joann's for 90% off! So I got like a yard of that fuzzy fabric for about 30 cents!

Here's my silly hat.

I bought a blow up bat at the dollar store... it's awesome, four feet long, and with giant smilies on it. An awesome bat is essential to weed out those who do not have silly hats.

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Heavy Metal Band on: June 28, 2006 08:23:28 PM
This is an etching I made of my favorite Japanese rock band, Dir En Grey.

I made this in my art class this year. It took me a whole 8 weeks to make...
I thought it was copper, because it tarnished a bit, but it was "new gold" which looks just like copper when they are both new and shiney, and apparently new gold doesn't etch very easily...
I etched it with an etching solution using a lot of paint pen to block out the solution when making layers.
The frame was made with stamped nickle siver which was rivoted together.

It was based off of this image.
