1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Fakie Van Slip-ons + Prismacolor Markers + Sea Creatures + Free Time = PIC HEAVY on: January 01, 2008 08:10:40 AM

CEPHALOPODsare where its at 
Shoes make a good canvas.
These sad, blank creatures were lying around for a long time destined for some sort of creative redemption. It came in the form of prismacolor markers and some miscellaneous doodles in my sketchbook...and a bit of a fume high, I'm sure.

I'm not quite sure if they're waterproof yet (ironic, I know). I don't intend to experiment too much, just wear them on (rare) dry days.

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / RATATAT anyone? (pics and stencil for you :D) on: May 14, 2007 05:35:03 AM
Anyone here ever heard of and/or is in love with Ratatat?
Brooklyn band, awesome music, awesome guys and AWESOME CONCERT. I went to a concert, standing right up against the stage rockin' out like it was my job....and thats when I decided I wanted a shirt. But they were sold out. Not a problem for a crafter!

The front, my face and my Red Sox hat...

I wanted it crooked  Wink


And if you love Ratatat as I do heres the stencil I made (minus the front text, that was just the enlarged name..yah) Feel free to use and spread...

If you don't love Ratatat its still a cool rocker stencil (just remove 'Ratatat' and you're set...)

Thanks fer lookin!

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doll Armature Things - Zombie Bunny + Emo Aaron (pleanty o' pics) on: April 23, 2007 03:00:00 PM
K so. Apart from sewing I lurrrve to craft n' stuff.
And I took an animation class last semester and one of our assignments was stop motion animation consisting of 2 posable armatures. And this is what I came up with!
Presenting Emo Arron and Zombie Bunny and their great adventures (of falling apart every 5 minutes [but with enough effort finally stayed together sturdily])

^ AAron is kinda sad about life. Sad

^Zombie bunny with my previous train wreck disaster of my first armature attempt. How not to make an armature 101. lol creepy hand. 

Yeah so I used a crazy lot of materials...Umm wire base, wrapped in duct tape, secured with epoxy putty (this stuff is god [but it smells like woah]), tons of scrap cloth, paper clay, tin foil, a tiny styrofoam ball, some like frickin' cotton whatev, acrylic paint, crazy scarf yarn, hot glue, a lot of caffeine and rage and what-have-you.

I had much more fun making the armatures then making the animation.
I would like to make more and perhaps slap together a tutorial of my madness meathods
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / *MANY PICS* First 2 (presentable AND functional) Hoodies!! Tom Brady/Batman :D on: March 19, 2007 09:00:45 AM
**I edited the pictures again xD*

Hi I'm Katie and I make things because I'm a poor college student.
Houkay, so..This is my first post but I've been lurking for quite some time. I LOVE this site - everything is so inspirational and the tutorials are a godsend. Ya ya, with that said

I sorta freehanded them/read this (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100217.0) tutorial..and viola.

From this


to this:

Anyway, I love the Patriots muchly...and I found this little kid jersey just laying about (on ebay) and after realizing I couldn't even fit it around my head..I decided it was high time to see what my sewing machine could do Smiley So I tore that apart and found some old over sized shirts and some fleece and went to town.
I just realized my room is a mess. Sweet.

AND THEN I found an old batman PILLOWCASE in the attic...like woah total recon material. I don't wear skirts let alone mini skirts..so I decided to take a different route and make a hoodie out of it. It was exciting.

Yo, sup.

Again. My face is weird. Shuddup.
So I used a t-shirt reference for the pillowcase..body area...and the sleeves (only, y'know, extended) and it seemed to work...

So that is what I did with the last couple days of spring break. When I should've been writing many essays. Oops.

So, what do you say? Any Patriots fans out there?  Grin
Thanks fer lookin'!
