11  Michonne and Her Pets Walking Dead Plushies in CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES by TrickyMcVomit on: May 03, 2013 06:27:13 PM
I sent these bad boys (and girl) to thehappycrochetchic for the Walking Dead Swap Round 2
It seems I don't have a 100% photo of them all, the pets are missing their chains and Michonne her katana but they are complete in the gallery if you feel so inclined to check it out. Those things really aren't that important. They are roughly 7 inches high and the pets eyes glow in the dark.

and as a bonus, here is the display box I made for them.

They were extremely difficult to ship off. I've been a part of 25 swaps, and these are by far my favorite creations.

babalina58 sent me all kinds of neat stuff!!!! Unfortunately, I only got 2 pictures before my phone crapped out =0(

There is a shirt like Sophia's, a shirt with wings on the back like Daryl, an etched mug, a little barn with chunks of the comic on the sides, a keychain, 2 buttons, a string doll, a Walking Dead book and a Rick Apron.

Rick Apron detail.

The apron is perfect because I make dinner for my boyfriend and I to bring over the neighbors and we all watch Walking Dead together on Sundays. I will definitly put this to good use!!!!! I love everything, thank you so much!!!!

Can you believe that CDEeeek hates clowns? I guess that's why I feel so lucky to have received so many!!!!




Gems and beads! Moons and stars were another theme along with clowns or circus and bumblebees. There is an itty bitty joke book, match book, pretty papers and stickers!

Closeup of the elephant and tiger beads on a quarter just to show how insanely tiny these babies are.

I'm giddy over everything!!! Thanks so much CDEeeek!!

16  "Little Monsters" Maurice Costume Makeup & Monster Mole Tips in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by TrickyMcVomit on: March 13, 2013 11:39:09 AM
Last year I made a "Maurice" costume from the 1980s movie "Little Monsters" I am very proud of how it came out, especially the makeup.

http://cdn.ebaumsworld.com/mediaFiles/picture/496624/423772.jpg ...and a link to the movie cover for good measure.

The "Monster Moles" were made by squirting fabric paint onto wax paper into little dome shapes and letting them dry completely before peeling them off and attaching them to my face with spirit gum. When you are making the dots, make sure to make extra in case some don't come out right.

Fabric paint will dry all the way through even if it's laid thick, and it's flexible when it dries too.

I've used this method for other crafts as well...they especially made great tiny eyeballs for dolls and some Christmas ornaments I made...

This is my sweet little ZOMBEE that I received and absolutely adore...it's a fabric applique that is mounted, so I can hang him up anywhere...he came with a stand as well. Right now he's on my desk being all cute and undead n stuff. I love bumble bees....I have a bee girl tattoo (a la Blind Melon) I'm super psyched about this little bitty. I have a 4X4 square drawn out so I could make sure my project was small enough and he fits right in there =0)

18  Stuffed HOT Cherry Pepper Shooters (Tuna & Sharp Provalone) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by TrickyMcVomit on: February 03, 2013 01:36:55 PM

My Mom has been making these forever...Since I've moved away, I've adopted a lot of her go to recipes to satisfy cravings of home.

I'm terrible with writing out recipes so I'll just tell you what went into this (BIG) batch and you can half it if you'd like.

~4 - 32oz jars of cherry peppers- I used 3 mild 1 hot and mixed them up
~1lb sharp provalone diced into small chunks
~3 12oz cans of chunk light tuna in water (drained)
~1 small shaker jar of Parmesan cheese
~A few handfuls of breadcrumbs
~1 large bulb garlic diced
~1 large can of black pitted olives, diced (optional)
~Oil to fill the jars, I use vegetable oil but I guess olive oil would be good too
~Container for extra peppers. When you put the stuffed peppers back in the jars, they all won't fit any more, so make sure you have some place to put extras! =0)

Drain the cherry pepper liquid. Reserving at least 1 cup. Dump all the cherry peppers into a bowl.
Wearing a pair of latex gloves (or similar if allergic), cut the top off of each pepper and scoop out the seeds...I use a smaller pair of scissors for this instead of a knife.

Don't throw away all the seeds!! The seeds is where the heat comes from...you don't want to use all of the seeds (though I know some lunatics who might) but save a handful to add to the stuffing after it's mixed, that way you can control how spicy the stuffing is. Put in a little at a time and taste test it.

Mix provolone, tuna, Parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic and olives adding the reserved pepper juice. (It should be kind of like a thick dough consistency)

Pack stuffing down into each pepper and a little on the outside and place them carefully back into the empty jars one at a time so you can fit as many as you can in there. DON'T FORCE THEM! If it doesn't fit, pick another pepper!

After they are all snuggled into their jar, fill the full jar with oil, covering the peppers. There will be left overs! I filled a big gulp sized cup because I had no other containers to use lol If there is any left over stuffing, It wouldn't hurt to eat it straight or on bread like my bf likes it...after all, it is tuna =0)

I've taken this to my favorite bar a few times and people went crazy over them! they are good for cookouts too, just remember that it is tuna and cheese and will need some sort of refrigeration, so don't let them sit out too long! (though I don't think they will...seriously...people go nuts over these...) One reason why it's better to make up smaller jars, you can refrigerate the others and set one out at a time, just to make sure they don't sit, but I doubt they will!

I hope that all makes sense and I hope you try it and like it!

I can also answer any questions if any of that didn't make sense =0)

20  Buzz Lightyear and Squeaky Alien in Halloween Costumes by TrickyMcVomit on: November 01, 2012 04:13:55 PM
I started conjuring up Buzz Lightyear in August. I researched a TON of home made Buzz costumes, female versions and full armor replicas. Even though I planned so much, it came out way different than I expected...and everything is hand sewn, hand painted and hot glued (except the corset and the skirt)

Craftser - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394211.0
Coolest Homemade Costumes - http://www.coolest-homemade-costumes.com/buzz-lightyear-costume.html
RPF (Where I got the decal templates)http://www.therpf.com/f24/buzz-lightyear-costume-ideas-89095/

I also watched the movie, I even used photoshop and took a still frame of Buzz and made the exact shape into the chest plate but we'll get to that later...

Alright then...where to begin....

I have the top over a black leather corset. The top is made of a sweatshirt, the sleeves were cut off and turned into leg warmers (The wrist cuff is at my knee, I have white leggings on too) and a turtleneck was sewn underneath. The gauntlets were bought but I cut the fingers off and attached a laser to my right wrist (you can see it peeking)

All "decals" were hand painted. The chest plate is made of a thin foam yoga mat. I made a pattern directly from a still of Buzz in Toy Story. I cut out 3 identical pieces and layered them with hot glue. Everything is covered in fleece. The buttons are wood, my laser button is beer bottle caps....
The wings.
If I couldn't get these wings, I wasn't going to bother being Buzz.
http://collider.com/toy-story-3-at-toy-fair-take-a-look-at-the-toys-disney-pixar-will-sell-you-later-this-year/16677/toy-story-3-buzz-lightyear-deluxe-action-wing-pack/ They open and close with the push of a button, they light up and they talk.
They are also extremely expensive. I was lucky enough to find a pair on Craigslist for dirt cheap. I was so excited...until the voice mechanism immediately gave out.

I had to rerig it anyways because the chest plate was child size, but at that point I also had to take the whole thing apart. Turns out I just had to shorted the speaker wire because it was shredded inside. I soldered for the first time! I used soldering paste, but I did good! here is a back shot of the wiring all electrical taped. The speaker was tucked into the green part but I took it out to show it off to you guys.

I made new straps from purple ribbon and covered that halfway in green fleece. The button to open the wings was originally on the chest but I had to move it to my shoulder because it wouldn't reach. I mean it was built for a child so...

Here is a closeup shot of my Pizza Planet Alien. I patterned it after a winter hat he wears and hand sewed it. The eyes are made of cat toys and hot glue. The antennae is glued to a headband which the hat hides, so that it will stand straight up.
I painted the Pizza Planet logo on this shirt which houses a squeaker. He isn't as high tech as Buzz, but a simple piece to a dog toy really made it that much more special.

...Oh, I almost forgot! I was going to make my gloves but they were too bulky and I didn't want to waste this painting, so I made it into a small purse =0)

I slaved over this buzz Lightyear costume...but the fun I had in it was incredibly worth it. People who were already in awe that I made them myself nearly exploded when my wings came out by themselves.  Grin
