1  Glam Rock Wrap Dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by earthkitten on: July 07, 2008 09:37:30 AM
Hi folks!

This is a very quick "dress" I made out of two large unbleached t-shirts, and one can of spray-paint.  The dress is actually one top, one matching skirt:  you can wear them separately, or together.  The top is also reversible, it looks good either way.

I will try and post a tute asap...but I don't have any photos of the process unfortunately...it was a bit of a 'spur-of-the-moment' thing!  But it literally took me about 15 minutes.  It's also the most comfy dress to go dancing in!

2  Crystal Cat Hoodie-sans-Hood (my first posted project! be kind!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by earthkitten on: November 02, 2007 10:38:57 AM
Well, this isn't a very new project...I actually did it sometime in July or August, but I thought I'd post photos, because up until now, I wasn't able to.

"Inspired" by a night fuelled by red, red wine...watching Dan Deacon's 'Crystal Cat' video on YouTube all by my lonesome.  I kind of got obsessed with this video for some reason...it's very hypnotic, especially when your boyfriend has gone surfing for a few days, and you're trapped at home alone with a big bottle...hehehe...

I started it when I was half-cut, and when I woke up the next morning, I thought, "WHAT THE HELL WAS I DOING?!!!"  So anyways, I decided to finish what I started.  The outline is Sharpie, and the colored parts are fabric paint pens.  It became my favorite 'hoodie' for quite a while.  I did make one mistake:  It was a brand new hoodie, and I didn't wash it before I painted it.  So I washed it after a while, and despite iron-setting the paint, a lot of it came off.  So Crystal Kitty is a little bit sad looking right now...gonna have to re-paint pretty soon.

Thanks to HollyJade for the photos.
