1  Blue IDontKnowTheNameOfThisFabric skirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Gilraen Nolatari on: February 19, 2010 08:39:12 PM
I've wanted a skirt made from this material in this colour for months, and finaly made it. It aint perfect, but I love it  Tongue

I improvised, so there's not much I can explain about it's construction (which, as you can see, is reaaally basic).

I wanted it to resemble a tutu a bit, so I made different layers of this..ahm.. material, to give it the look and movement I wanted. (The only problem is that it weights NOTHING, so when the wind blows and I'm not quick enough, everyone can see my 'I <3 GEEKS' underwear. [Or my hooker garters, if they're lucky.])
I didnt hem the edges, as it made the skirt really 'stiff'. I melted them a bit with a lighter instead, so that they don't fray.

My legs look pink and chubby. They're chubby, but not pink. (I'm wearing pinkish-purple-blah fishnets)

Thanks for looking! Smiley

2  Pirate Costume! in Halloween Costumes by Gilraen Nolatari on: October 27, 2008 05:50:51 PM
I started with this on august (yeah, I'm obsessed with halloween)
I first made the skirt out of an old _*I dont know how to say it in english. it's white, and like an extra-long white shirt you wear on top of you clothes in chemistry*_ + scraps of fabric, and dyed it with tea and other..substances (aka coffee, ink, etc. . .)

Then I started working on my bf's costume (which is a pirate one, too. I'll post some pics of him in it when I get them).
I grabbed some old pants he had, ripped and stained them. I also cut them so that they are knee-length now. I grabbed an old shirt and ripped the neckline, bottom and cuffs. I stained it too.

I bought a floor-length fake leather jacket for 6 bucks, and used that to make a corset (I made the pattern, too). Oh.. and my bf bought some second hand boots for 4 bucks.



Crappy pic of the back of the corset

Now I'm making a pirate hat, using last year Threadbanger's Halloweeny Wednesdays' Pirate Costume tutorial ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvopk72Bx3Y )
+ an eyepatch + MAYBE a tiny pirate hat for me

Oh, and I had most of the acsesories (belts, necklaces, pearls, amulets...) You'll see them afterwards. The only thing we bought was my red sash thingy (6 bucks) and a brown/orange-y one for him).

I'll post more pics as soon as I take them...!

I used a really good and simple tut I found at Emilie's official forum

Ow..you take a picture pleaase?
I'll try to see what's the problem Smiley
(I think I know what the problem is, but again, I can't explain it :c )

Heres a picture....I'm REALLY sorry it's blurry and bright! My camera didn't want to work with me! Hehe....Do you see the tail of my unicorn?


Ok I know what's the problem =)
Now... I suck at explaining things, so If you don't understand something please ask me again n__n

Now.. when you start beading you add more beads to each row, right? (At least at the begining)
What you have to do is try to add enough beads to make a sort of.. flat plate n__n
(a really small one... You shouldn't need more than...5 rows?)
Here's a little crappy paint-made drawing :3

And then you keep on beading as if nothing had happened.

7  Harry Potter - Luna Lovegood's Beaded Radish Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Gilraen Nolatari on: June 29, 2007 02:34:37 PM
Well, I had been wondering for a while how could I make a pair of radish earrings like Luna's (Harry Potter).
A week or so ago I saw a pic of Evanna Lynch (as Luna in the movie) wearing a pair of beaded ones..

..So I thought I could try making them too Cheesy, so..

What do you think?
(I have no idea of how I did it. It's the first time I attempt to do something like this..I think it turned out pretty well (4 out of 5 people guessed it was a radish, and 1/5 thought it was a strawberry  Tongue)

8  BEADED CROWN + TUT in Beads: Completed Projects by Gilraen Nolatari on: May 07, 2007 02:54:54 PM
Some time ago i posted my chimaera's pics, and one of them had a little beaded crown
I tried to make a tutorial explaining how to make them, and I just couldn't explain it using words.
Instead, I made another crown taking a picture of every step.
I arranged the pics so that finally they where like 2 big pictures instead of a lot of small ones :p
I hope you can understand them =p

Here are the links to both pics:
