1  Eskimo dress (pic obese) in Costumes: Completed Projects by brii-elzebub on: March 05, 2008 01:08:06 AM
This dress is kind of a halloween costume, as I made it for halloween, but its too warm and cozy to not wear more often.  I drafted the pattern myself, basing it off of the "sexy" halloween costumes that sell for WAY too much money.  I wanted something quality and cheap.  It cost maybe $20 to make, and that's only because I bought way too much material.  Its made of polar fleece and faux fur.  The hood edging is stuffed with stuffing tob make it look fluffier.  I accidentally sewed the zipper on inside out, and didn't feel like seam ripping all of it, so its now just a pain to get on and off.  It was so warm...I was probably the only warm girl on halloween.  I didn't feel like leaving the hood up, so I brought out my horns from another halloween and said I was the wampa from star wars.  Unfortunately I didn't actually take any pics on halloween, so my makeup and everything isn't done or anything.  These pics are months later.

The Back:


The Boots (not DIY...happened to have some):


The Dog not being thrilled with posing with me:


And, of course, the wampa (I promise next year it'll be more convincing):


I know its really late, didn't feel like putting it in the costumes section because I doubt many people check that this time of year.  Move it if you'd like! But anywho, figure its better to put it up late than never!

2  First forged metal project (pic heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by brii-elzebub on: March 05, 2008 12:38:13 AM
This is my first forged metal project.  I'm taking a class on it, but it turns out I'm not very good, haha.  I spent 14 hours sanding/buffing this thing to make it shiny, but ran out of time and had to revert to filing and oxidizing it.  I think it looks pretty neat, but I wish I could have finished it the way it was intended to be finished.  It is entirely made of copper (the thin parts aren't leather, even though they look it).  It was a complete pain in the rear.  I couldn't get any good pics of the finish on it, definitely more copper stands out beyond the oxidation in person. 

In its full glory:

Action Shot (excuse my boobs, this necklace requires a low neckline):

Close up of front (best I can get of the finish, excuse the soder, it was my first try at it):

Clasp action, and flat (very comfortable and works well, I was pleasantly suprised):



Even though I'm not horribly happy with it, it wasted so many hours of my life that I had to show it off Wink

3  Psychobilly/red vinyl chair in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by brii-elzebub on: November 05, 2006 07:47:28 PM
I collect vinyl chairs, don't know why.  guess I just like them a lot.  This one I loved the moment I saw, but felt it needed a little makeover.  It was only $15, so happy.  I don't think I've bought a chair for over $15, come to think of it...But anyways I'm OBSESSED with zebra print, so it became zebra printed.  Took hours and hours to paint all these tiny stripes on.  My brother's fiance made me the matching pillow and I made the day of the dead skull pillow.

4  A few things I've made (pic heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by brii-elzebub on: November 05, 2006 07:23:22 PM
Sorry, I was a lurker for so long without posting anything that now I don't have enough posts to put pics up Sad  sorry!
I made all thse over the summer.  I've made more stuff recently, but don't feel like downloading pictures right now.
#1- Deftones tube top, was originally a medium guys deftones shirt and a large girls ugly yellow sorority shirt.  It's a halter now, but looked better as just the tube top.  Sorry I don't have before pictures.
  

#2- I made this huge ugly dress into a much cuter ruffled dress, based loosely on audrey hepburn.  I'll never wear it...but I like it anyways.

5  Messenger bags! (pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by brii-elzebub on: October 19, 2006 02:17:55 PM
Hey, this is my first real post!  I've been a lurker for quite some time though.  I really like to make bags...I don't have much free time anymore though...So here's a couple of my bags.  The skull one is the first one I ever made and the red one is MUCH more recent and much more well done.  Also my first attempt ever on pleats.  Tell me what you think! (sorry I look so creepy in that pic...)

Ps.  I don't use patterns. Or really measure even...I'm that lazy.
