71  Shoes! in Shoes: Completed Projects by shayneblate08 on: May 05, 2007 02:06:37 PM
It won't let me post in the shoes forum  Cry ... so I posted here!  Cheesy

Um... yes, I got these White stag blank white shoes at Walmart for $6.50USD it was AWESOME. I've since gone back and gotten more to do.
Okay, these look huge because they are, they are size 12 womens and still small on my ginormous feet. anyway.
painted with purple, then metallic pink and red, then metallic blue and silver, then with little hearts sewn on and oh well just see for yourself.
I thought it would be fun to paint the bottoms, even though its already wearing off, shucks.
anyway! on with it already.











yep.

thanks for looking and I love comments!

72  Rainbow studded medium length vest in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shayneblate08 on: May 05, 2007 09:24:17 AM
Note: all my stuff is HAND-SEWN I do not have a sewing machine, these things take hours. I don't use patterns, I have very little money so I use crappy material.
My pictures will never EVER reflect the actual clothing, it doesn't do them any justice.

ANd most of my stuff is SUPPOSED to look grungy and dirty.

still kind of short and boxy--
6 row thing of rainbow studs on each side of front, taken from suspenders that were too small for me. two studs above one of the buttons and two studes below it. two pins near top say "No (well, the red circle with the slash) Whining" and one is a peace sign. on one side of the collar there is a row of spaced silver studs, it is black and has bright green thread (from an old pair of kelly green tripp pants). key sewn onto a breast pocket its antique--it used to open an old keepsake music box my grandmother gave me that got lost on our move. 3 big safety pins grouped together. cant see it here but there's a long huge x covering the back, with the connector in the middle from the suspenders.

this was kind of an old ladyish jacket my grandma bought for me at Talbots. It was a blue cropped jacketet, little past my middriff, with long tight sleeves and a fitted... well, fit. I cropped off the arms, and drew all over it XD

On the back, is Vla AKA Bellz's logo. He lives in Riga, Latvia, which is near Russia, beneath, I believe, Estonia. He is awesome, and you need to check out his gallery:
http://www.bellz.deviantart.com (it actually says that along the bottom of the jacket).

On the front is an image of a Hamsa (the upside down hand with the eye on it) **a Jewish symbol that serves as an ancient talismanic way of averting and getting protection from the evil eye, or more generally of providing a "protecting hand" or "Hand of God".**; an image of a Chai **means life**; an image of a gun; an x; a + ; some dice; a spiral; and a heart; and there is an upside down heart cutout in the right collar of it.

one pic, hope it shows enough...

Here is a hoodie I sewed to a plaid shirt, cut the arms off the hoodie and did a design on front and back. take a look at the zipper too.

Design was done with nail polish, fabric paint, embroidery thread and Mountain Dew.

75  Chai button down shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shayneblate08 on: May 05, 2007 09:09:26 AM
Purple sharpie on a blue shirt!

This shirt required a lot more work than visible. It was like a 4x and i got it at a garage sale for 50 cents, and I couldn't resist. It's a really nice shirt, but it was freyed at all of the seams, collar and hems. it was really wrinkled and unpressed, and some of the buttons were missing. I took it in because I thought I could scrap it and use it for something. When I got it back, I remembered I didn't have a thing to wear to Temple that night, so I sewed up the seams, and took int the sides by cutting off a lot of fabric and sewing the seams again, replaced all the buttons with these nice round dress shirt buttons, and drew the symbol of a Chai on it, which is two hebrew letters Hey and Yud, they mean 'Life' or 'To Life' in Hebrew. I love the symbol Chai because it represents my family's connection to Judaism and G-d. My connection is a little more apparent since I'm training to be a Rabbi, but that is a story for another day...

All my stuff is handsewn as I do not have a sewing machine. It takes a while, be gentle.

76  White pinstripe blazer. decorated. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shayneblate08 on: May 04, 2007 05:13:37 PM
So I had this blazer. and plain, it looked rather pimpish or 70's ish and that just didn't work. So I attacked it with sharpies, a needle, black thread and black satin (the hearts on each sleeve.)
It came with matching pants, so I'm thinking of doing something with them. We'll see.
















thanks for looking, comments are appreciated.
