1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blue IDontKnowTheNameOfThisFabric skirt. 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  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Pirate Costume! 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...!

6  COOKING / Dessert / Please help me: Creme Brule ._. on: July 21, 2007 04:56:10 PM
Well, today I went to my grandma's house, and while we where baking muffins she asked me if I knew any recipe for creme brule.. And.. well... I told her I didn't knew anyone, but that I could try searching for a not-so-complicated one over the internet.
She said that that would be great, but that it would be better if someone that had tried the recipe before gave us some advice, so I said I'll ask here...
So, if you've made creme brule before, please pleaaaase help us   Undecided

BTW, my first language is Spanish, so sorry if I didn't make myself clear in some points  Tongue
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Harry Potter - Luna Lovegood's Beaded Radish Earrings 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  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / BEADED CROWN + TUT 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:

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / MY NEW NECKLACE on: February 22, 2007 03:37:00 PM
LAST NIGHT I WAS BORED, AND I NOTICED THAT I HAD SMALL AMOUNTS OF DIFFERENT BEADS, SO I USED THEM TO MAKE THIS.
